MALDIVES-ENVIRONMENT-WASTE-TOURISM

To go with MALDIVES-ENVIRONMENT-WASTE-TOURISM,FEATURE by ADAM PLOWRIGHT In this photo taken on September 11, 2013, buildings fill the skyline of the densely populated Male, capital of the Maldives. Descending by plane into the Maldives offers a panoramic view of azure seas and coral-fringed islands, but as the tarmac nears billowing smoke in the middle distance reveals an environmental calamity. Thilafushi Island, a half-hour boat trip from the capital, is surrounded by the same crystal clear waters and white sand that have made the Indian Ocean archipelago a honeymoon destination for the rich and famous.
