Ioane Teitiota is a Kiribass (Kiribati) and his country, an atoll, is disappearing under the sea. There are only five cars in all of Kiribati. No flushing toilets and no electricity. Just a country where the people rely on fishing and selling dried fish.

Most of the country is just 6' above sea level.
