Kiribati is the only country in the world which is located at the intersection of two lines: Ecuador (horizontal) and Longitude 180 ° (vertical)
For the conditions of its site and its situation, climate experts predict for Kiribati a warming of surface temperatures, an increase in precipitation, an acidification of the oceans and a rise in sea level (aggravated by the low altitude of 3 m) It is a matter of existence or extinction for this country.
