Unhappy Rising sea Levels

I am terribly concerned with the effects of global warming and rising sea levels. On a recent visit back home i noticed how high the sea level had risen and i am scared for my people and especially those in the sinking islands of Mortlock and Carterets.
I would be interested to know if there are other coastal or island communities being noticably affected by rising levels.

sinking islands

The effects of global warming can be see happening around the world - its very sad. But closer to home - the Duke of York Islands are sinking... this is due to the the rise in ocean levels as well as volcanic activity. I think many coastlines around PNG are gradually disappearing.

Unhappy

yes it is very worrying to think that in 50 years from now some of these islands will be submerged.
