Underwater warnings about climate change


A Greenpeace protest with a difference – as the climate change conference in Cancun continues, young activists dived among statues at a subaquatic museum to illustrate the threat posed by rising sea levels.

Humans have not evolved to exist under water yet the places where millions of us are live could be flooded as a result of rising climate temperatures.

We all need to be warned said Brady Bradshaw from Greenpeace.“100 million people or more are threatened by sea-level rise, and governments meeting here in Cancun must make the right choices to protect the climate and protect ourselves.”

The climate talks in Mexico seek a package of measures including new funding to developing nations as well as ways to share clean technology, actions which the protesters say are needed to prevent fundamental change to our futures.
