The Island President: climate change now

An extremely compelling biographical film about the former (as of last year) president of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed. He was been arrested several times, imprisoned, and beaten before being the first democratically elected leader of the Maldives. I realized I need to read up on the situation more because only last year was there a coup that terminated his governance, and it’s likely that all the hard work he did to help move the Maldives towards being carbon neutral–and fight for global cooperation to lower carbon emissions–will stop.
