In this episode of Angry Planet, storm chaser George Kourounis explores Tuvalu, the troubled island off the coast of the South Pacific which is falling victim to rising sea levels. Perhaps more devestating than the vanishing islands phenomena, though, is the shocking revelation that coastline errosion is no longer exclusive to low-lying islands. Even tourist cities such as Miami could fall under water due to the stark effects of global warming and climate change.
