Big thanks to all the Nebula subscribers who make projects like this possible! Just know that your subscription is still well worth it as this is one of the last cases of a Nebula original going to UZblock. This is just a legacy of how the contract was when we agreed to do this original, but that's no longer the policy.

It is really sad to see the changes since I lived on Majuro. I moved there in 1968, at the age of 3, with my parents and older brother. Majuro was my home. I cried when we left 6 years later. I had a short visit in 1982 and haven't been able to go back. Watching this documentary my heart ached for the challenges being faced.

Global warming and rising sea level catastrophe projections have never been anything but wrong. Global temperatures and sea level have always fluctuated on earth. Sea level has only risen 7 inches in the past 100 years. This is not anything to panic over.

It's funny how it's considered cool to berate European Colonianism and deem Caucasians as a a morally evil sort but genocide caused by African people's among each other, the Japanese in the East, the Chinese, Russia and thousands of other examples in History is OK. WTF

Because it's a badly researched video trying to play on your emotions and not discussing some obvious solutions to the problem, like building an artificial island in the same area or asking a nearby country to share a piece of land for these people to move to, etc..

Culture and customs: the downfall of so many societies. Am I supposed to feel bad for some unlucky people who were born unluckily on a shitty island? Just move! Where there's a will, there's a way, and $1500 isn't that much to throw on to your credit card to bring a family member over who will pay you back with $2000. Poor people, who have this insignificant issue consume such a huge part of their lives, instead of leaving and forgetting all about their past misery. Start a new life, learn some new culture and customs!

The kind of vocab, the terminologies used and the structure of your content's sentences really helped me A LOT improve my English. And besides, I love the kind of topics you cover, keep going! 😉

I know this is calous. But humans have to realize that nothing ever stays the same. Nature erodes and reclaims everything. River banks get eaten away, shore lines dissipate. If you removed ever car cow and person the Marshall Islands would still be reclaimed by the oceans. Sorry

“The enduring legacy of nukes is not peace or energy” I don’t know fan. We haven’t had a world war or any real large wars and energy created by nuke energy has kept prices down in a lot of places.

As someone who’s Marshallese, seeing this video brings me great happiness that everyone can learn the true untold history of the Marshall Islands. But also brings me great sadness that everyone is now only just learning of the Marshall Islands.

Personally, I have no contradictions with the fact that climate is changing and humans are the main cause of it. Ice caps melting = more water in the oceans + more warm water is less dense, so the volume is a bit more. Couldn't find any reliable info about levels of soil subsidence by itself. In other terms: Sea level rise = level of the rise of the ocean + soil subsidence in relation to bedrock or some other reliable point. I assume the last one might be very significant in these measures. Which is not makes the first one less of a cause, of course.

Big Vision 01 As we i see it
If your island is really bad sell it to me for a dollar $1. You all can go to the US to become a doctor, lawyer. flip burgers or process dead chickens. In the meantime, I will build Majoro, I mean Vista Island, into a tourist spot bigger than any of those China's artificial Islands, Any taker?

The "1.5 C to stay alive" hits me hard. Their desire is just the most basic desire, to not die. Yet that desire still needs to be told to the world, shouting it loudly, otherwise, the world would not know. It's heartwrenching that even basic human needs are so hard to maintain even in today's world.
Big Vision 01 As we i see it
I love Majuro, I have been there years ago as an engineer. It is a beautiful island, friendly people, and great weather. But it is sinking like a rock in the ocean. Ohh, too bad... booohooo. But wait! but China builds islands with a seaport, airport, and tall buildings (from a coral rock!)... and I am sure they use Chinese peasant slave labor and Muslims in rehabs. But I know you have some dumb politician that doesn't think with no brain. But I sure hope most of you are smart, I really believe you can build your own Island not just cry about it, But seriously folks, as soon as you leave the Island, Comunistist China will take over and build 4 times its size and fish your ocean. And you all will be kicking yourself in the ass. ouch!

*Let's have global communism, eco-facism depriving all of us of our basic human rights which will impoverish billions of people to maybe prevent a few percentage points of climate change to save some islands where a few tens of thousands people live.* Good plan guys.

I think a neat way to remedy the experience of the island is to do a thorough 360 capture throughout the island, so people can visit the island via VR. It can have a picture walk-through, so people can tour it like Google Maps. The picture walk-through can visit stores and school grounds. It can have a video walk-through, so people can be immersed into the culture there. They can witness first Birthdays and Marshallese cultural dances.

Complete bullsh!t. Climate change is not raising ocean levels more than a few inches per century, if that. Majuro is in no danger.

13:48 "The enduring legacy of nuclear weapons is not peace or energy, but destruction." "Ackchuyually," this kind technically false. The Nuclear Deterrent theory suggest that since the invention of the nuclear bomb (and the power it demonstrated in Nagasaki and Hiroshima), no new major conflicts or world wars have occurred as a result, nor have any nuclear bombs been dropped on a hostile nation since. So far that theory has proven that theory to be correct. Also, nuclear power remains in place in numerous countries, and is becoming the inevitable energy option should we wish to go 'green' quick.

Question: How many people have lost their homes (land) alongside rivers, cliffs, volcanoes, sinkholes, earthquakes, forest fires etc over the years? Before we all get teary eyed I urge all to have a sense of perspective, honesty and reality. Losing one's home is sad but to claim victimhood is even worse. Let this sink in. Stop jumping on the 'Global Warming' (name changed to Climate Change!) bandwagon and start thinking for yourself.

Here is my message to the people who refuse to believe the severity of global warming Ok, you can sit there in your tiny little bubble and ignore the world around you but what will happen will happen. Your not gonna wake up one day and find that the entire world ended ethir. But that doesn't mean nothing's gonna happen or that should that should be ignore what is gonna happen. Coastline will shrink and homes will flood and will go on and won't stop on unless do something. Climate change isn't a sudden thing its a gradual process that won't stop happening unless we make changes and the sooner we do that the less people get hurt.

I don't think you understand these people aren't some random hunter gatherer society in the middle of know where these are people are a littoral nation. They have cars, and planes, electricity and the internet just like we do just they happen to live somewhere els and be different than you. Yes they can move some where els but think about it. In a hypothetical scenario lets just say something was going to come and destroy your home, the place were you lived all your life. Would you do everything in your power to stop it? Yes you could always move but if you know it could be stopped wouldn't you try to stop it? Now this this isn't just happening to you its your entire country that's facing this problem. Now really just move somewhere else? Maybe you would but you diffenity wouldn't be happy about it and would do everything you could to stop that from happening.
