This Thursday, Nov. 5, 2015, aerial photo shows a small uninhabited island that has slipped beneath the water line only showing a small pile of rocks at low tide on Majuro Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Climate change poses an existential threat to places like the Marshall Islands, which protrude only 6 feet (2 meters) above sea levelin most places. King tides, when the alignment of the Earth, moon and sun combine to produce the most extreme tidal effects, and storm surges cause floods that contaminate fresh water, kill crops, and erode land. As a result, some Marshallese think an exodus as inevitable, while others are planning to stay and fight. (AP Photo/Rob Griffith)
