What happens when two hurricanes collide? Does it result in a mega-hurricane? Does one hurricane consume the other? Or do they just bounce off of each other and continue moving about their business?

Kiribati: a drowning paradise in the South Pacific | DW Documentary

Climate change and rising sea levels mean the island nation of Kiribati in the South Pacific is at risk of disappearing into the sea.

But the island’s inhabitants aren’t giving up. They are doing what they can to save their island from inundation. Can COP23 help make a difference?

UN estimates indicate that Kiribati could disappear in just 30 or 40 years. That’s because the average elevation is less than two meters above sea level. And some of the knock-on effects of climate change have made the situation more difficult. Kiribati can hardly be surpassed in terms of charm and natural beauty. There are 33 atolls and one reef island – spread out over an area of 3.5 million square kilometers. All have white, sandy beaches and blue lagoons. Kiribati is the world’s largest state that consists exclusively of atolls. A local resident named Kaboua points to the empty, barren land around him and says, “There used to be a large village here with 70 families.” But these days, this land is only accessible at low tide. At high tide, it’s all under water. Kaboua says that sea levels are rising all the time, and swallowing up the land. That’s why many people here build walls made of stone and driftwood, or sand or rubbish. But these barriers won’t stand up to the increasing number of storm surges. Others are trying to protect against coastal erosion by planting mangrove shrubs or small trees. But another local resident, Vasiti Tebamare, remains optimistic. She works for KiriCAN, an environmental organization. Vasiti says: “The industrialized countries — the United States, China, and Europe — use fossil fuels for their own ends. But what about us?” Kiribati’s government has even bought land on an island in Fiji, so it can evacuate its people in an emergency. But Vasiti and most of the other residents don’t want to leave.

7. Desert Cones
The thing about secrets is that once they’re uncovered, they’re not a secret anymore. But, near El Gouna, Egypt, in the sands that surround the area, there is a “secret” that keeps getting rediscovered. You see, in 2014, people used Google Maps to look at the Sahara Desert and its surrounding areas and noticed some odd cone shaped markings in the sand. As they zoomed out, they noticed a massive pattern that was too precise to be random.

6. The Nabta Stones
When it comes to building things that are theoretically impossible for the times, the Egyptians hold the record. In southern Egypt there are ancient megalithic structures that are believed to be a type of calendar circle.

5. It’s Not Exactly What You Think
Let’s start off with some interesting facts about the Sahara Desert that you might not have known. For example, even though it is considered the largest desert on Earth, that’s technically not true. Antarctica is scientifically a desert too, a snow desert, but one nonetheless.

4. The Magic Lake
When you are dehydrated and have been wandering around the desert for a while, you might start seeing things that are aren’t there, like a lake. A mirage can be very deadly depending on how you react to it. But, imagine people’s surprise when an actual lake appeared near Tunisia in 2014, and not only was it real, it was massive.

3. Desert Glass
Glass is something you most likely see every single day. It’s used to make windows, windshields, glasses, and so many more things. But, you wouldn’t expect to find it in certain places. Like for example, in the worlds’ biggest desert. Yet, that’s exactly what happened.

2. Kingdoms Beneath The Sand
One of the biggest things that the Sahara Desert is known for is it’s sand. It’s everywhere! The sand has helped hide and preserve some interesting secrets. Looking at it from above, we have found some very old secrets.

1. The Eye Of The Sahara
I definitely saved the best for last, because this mystery is something that’s been around for quite some time, but was only discovered once we started taking pictures from space. I give to you, the Eye of the Sahara.
