President Nasheed: “We Refuse To Be Quiet” On Climate Change

The road for President Mohammed Nasheed of the Maldives has never been easy. He is the nation’s first democratically elected President and faced huge hurdles, including prison, to win office. Nasheed says you can’t negotiate with physics. He has three words for climate change deniers and those are three-five-oh. 350 parts per million is the level of carbon that we need to prevent climate change. He says the Maldives will be the first country in the world to be carbon neutral. He says if the Maldives can do it, larger countries can follow. Nasheed pushed his audience to protest and put pressure on their governments for change. Nasheed spoke to the Klima change forum in Copenhagen during the UN Climate Change Conference.
