Quick tour of the South Pacific: over here in Kiribati's South Tarawa atoll, we have Dancing Hot Dog's Blimp, and then to the North West, we have the United States' flooding nuclear waste dump, the Runit Dome, on the bombed Enewetak Atoll.

You can learn about the history of the Marshall Islands in Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner's work. It's a living example of short-term thought, where nuclear fallout rained on the indigenous, & nuclear history was buried in a grave that never foresaw climate change.  https://youtu.be/_isgBtJfPzU 

Great piece on diving the shipwrecks of the Bikini Atoll. As early as 2045, the Marshall Islands — having survived nuclear fallout and 67 atomic tests — will become permanently uninhabitable because of sea level rise. This history will wash into the sea.  https://youtu.be/63Z86VdHryc
