The Maldives are a string of islands directly below Asia
The Big Question
The question we asked was: How will global warming affect the people of the Maldives?
Why is this important?
Because of global warming, the water level is rising so it seems as if the islands are sinking.
They have to live in houses above the water. The highest point in the Maldives is 2.4 meters.
Tourisim is a HUGE part of the Maldives. In fact, most of their profit comes from tourists. But, if the Maldives are under water, the beautiful sites and attractions will be harder to see.
