On 19 October 1987, the former President of Maldives Mr Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, spoke at the UN General Assembly and warned about the dangers that the Maldives was facing from climate change, and said (and I quote), "a mean sea level rise of 2 metres would suffice to virtually submerge the entire country of 1190 islands, most of which barely rise two metres above mean sea level.
