Apr 18th, 2009 PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad -- U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu is warning that if countries they don't do something about climate change, "some island states will simply disappear."
The energy secretary is traveling with President Barack Obama to the two-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago for a summit of the Western Hemisphere's democracies. Chu told reporters at the Summit of the Americas on Saturday that Obama pushed leaders to work to stem rising temperatures.
Chu says that rising temperatures lead to more damaging hurricanes and rising oceans. Chu says those results are scary and could wipe out islands such as Trinidad and Tobago.
