Aloha:


We went to the front lines of Sea Level Rise in Micronesia by visiting the remote atolls of Pingelap, Mokil, Sapwuafik, Ta, Ulithi, and Fais. We saw 50' of shoreline washed away, drinking water shortages, and half to 80% of taro fields being permanently destroyed by the ocean.  

Most Islanders have no place to go and daily survival is a challenge. LYON is committed to Improving Island Life on these atolls and we hope you find the video interesting.
 
PS: We wrote our third book!
