The Island state of Nauru is dying. One of the reasons has been gross overexploitation of its natural resources. The President of the small Island nation has an op-ed in the NYT – he’s not looking for sympathy – but to warn us all:

But make no mistake; we are a sovereign nation, with our own language, customs and history dating back 3,000 years. Nauru is worth a quick Internet search, I assure you, for not only will you discover a fascinating country that is often overlooked, you will find an indispensible cautionary tale about life in a place with hard ecological limits.
