Pacific Island Nation Considers Packing Up, Moving

By Erik Hayden, TIME

Kiribati Island
March 9, 2012 Updated Mar 9, 2012 at 10:56 AM PST

The government of Kiribati has no shortage of ambitious ideas to combat the threat of rising tides that could sink the country. Including packing up and moving somewhere else.

Reports say the nation’s cabinet is reviewing options to migrate citizens to a 6,000 acre, $9.6 million dollar Fijian island, located more than 1,000 miles away.

The plan reportedly still needs to be approved by the country’s parliament before it moves forward. “We’re trying to secure the future of our people,” said President Anote Tong. “The international community needs to be addressing this problem more.”

Kiribati’s leaders had also considered building a man-made island with a $2 billion estimated price tag or outfitting their island with sea walls, according to the U.K.’s The Independent. Migrating to the Fijian island was said to be a “last resort” move by President Tong.

“This is the last resort, there’s no way out of this one,” Tong said, according to The Telegraph. “Our people will have to move as the tides have reached our homes and villages.”

Great, now the image of a bunch of guys singing an Eagles tune is haunting me.

We came from Polynesia,
One tiny Island
Where the threat of old world tidal waves hang
heavy in the air
We packed our hopes and dreams
like some refugees
Just as our fathers came across the sea
