Planning For An Island's Demise

Planning For An Island's Demise

(The picture at this link is not the future, it is now.) After reading this article it is hard to trust anything any organization is telling us in regards to their false hope. Question is, once these islands are swallowed by the rising seas just how outraged will we as a species be as a whole? Measure the reaction in tandem with the action to prevent it and you see the main reason besides rising greenhouse gasses for their demise.

As glaciers continue to melt and extreme weather continues to rage across the globe we see starkly what our future and present are. FRESHWATER SOURCES ARE IN DANGER GLOBALLY and that includes the US. We have been warned countless times that to continue to have a response that is not equal to the urgency of the crisis would be like putting a band aid on a broken leg.

We pushed the moral imperative to the backburner. We made politics more important than doing what is right and necessary. We forgot that this crisis goes beyond anything our egos place in front of it as a wall.

Will you mourn for the people of Kirabati? The answer to that question is the crux of this crisis.

I don't agree to the plan on the island. What will happen now to the water is life motif that this island has.
