Climate Change Reminder

Ani Triastuti prays while sitting on a desk, in her house which has been flooded by sea water, at Mondoliko village in Demak, Indonesia's Central Java province November 14, 2009. Mondoliko village, home to some 188 families and located about one kilometer from the beach, has for the past three years been flooded by sea water because of rising sea levels, according to Sunarti Triastuti, a villager. Triastuti also said the floods destroyed the village's padi fields and farmers have had to head to the city to find other means of livelihood. (REUTERS/Beawiharta) Here.
