Climate change refugees

The world's first climate change refugees

They are not please with their new-found notoriety, but the inhabitants of the Carteret Islands, after their 300 year history, will be uprooted and evacuated from their homes

The cause: rising sea levels

Where the once white beaches made the island a secret idyll, the highest point now only stands 5ft above sea level

An interactive, by scrolling down the home page by David Kinross, shows this perfectly

The 'Tulin' – people who come from the ocean – and interviewed by the Daily Telegraph, can be seen and heard here on Telegraph.co.uk

Lets hope the world leaders at the summit in Copenhagen can sort their squabbles and deliver
