A Green Question

Thanks, in part to the brilliant public relations move of holding an underwater cabinet meeting, Maldives is known throughout the world as the country that could disappear from the map due to rising sea levels. However, with all the talk of turning this into a green paradise for sustainable energy, Maldivians are not very considerate of the environment around the capital. This floating trash was in the harbor right outside the foreign ministry and the president’s office and it gets worse in the areas of the harbor that are basically an outdoor sewer for the fishing boats. I should point out that it is a very different story on the resort islands where the waters are pristine.
