Paradise Lost, and some rhetorical questioning



Without global outrage or mournful fanfare- the island of Kiribati has given up in the face of the rising tide and is planning for evacuation.

Well, they work SOOOO hard.

If you happen to come across any global outrage, please refer them to Islands First's web site or blog.

There remains a profound disconnect between the heightened awareness of these issues and the timely implementation of policies to address them. The livelihoods and potentially the very existence of other small island states remain in doubt as long as rapid remedial action is not taken.

Islands First facilitates the ability of small island nations to influence the international policy agenda and advocate for environmental justice. Your support is welcome.
