Leadership on climate change from most vulnerable nations

Earlier this week, and just a few weeks before talks in Copenhagen, President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a nation facing the very real threat of being overwhelmed by rising seas due to climate change, gave an impassioned speech at the Climate Vulnerable Forum. In it he challenged the nations most vulnerable to climate change to demonstrate moral leadership, and join a “global survival pact” by committing to carbon neutral development.
