Maldives - leading by example: Climate-conscious Maldives Prez adopts solar energy

It might be a very symbolic gesture but it is clearly a great communcation success: so as to to persuade world leaders to go green and demonstrate their commitment to renewable energy, the President of the Maldives, Mohammad Nasheed will adopt a solar energy model at his residence shunning non-renewable energy.

The Maldives are widely known as a luxury travel destination where luxury hotels are developing fast all around these islands that are on average 5 feet under sea level.

Nasheed, last year, had led his cabinet into an under-water meeting t highlight the dangers of global warming and the risk the rise in water levels posed to low-lying islands like his country.
