Engineering[edit]

The article should consider mentioning whether there have ever been proposals to re-engineer the island by building dams or by raising the ground level by several dozens of feet. For instance, the local government could attempt to apply the techniques used to construct artificial islands, by which the seafloor is modified for geographical purposes.

Problem[edit]

This article has a problem, in that it isn't about climate change in Tuvalu. It is about sea level rise and its affects on Tuvalu. Sea level isn't really climate. Changes in sea level can be an effect of climate change, but that's not the same thing William M. Connolley (talk) 21:57, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

I agree, "Effects of climate change on Tuvalu" would be a much better title. 83.254.192.84 (talk) 18:03, 28 November 2010 (UTC)
