Marshall Islands Foreign Minister: Climate Change Is Killing Us

It’s the number 1 threat or something

After a prolonged and unseasonable drought that began late last year, the severe lack of drinking water in our northern atolls led my government to declare a disaster area on May 7. This humanitarian crisis is climate-induced. About 6,000 people are affected by severe water shortages and are surviving on less than one liter of water per day. All of the affected communities have lost the staple crops that provide their daily food.

My people are not only thirsty and hungry, they are also getting sick. The drying water wells are contaminated with bacteria and salt. Diarrhea, pink eye, flu and other drought-related diseases are on the rise, particularly among children, and we are on the brink of a much wider outbreak. With no significant rain forecast until at least July, the situation is likely to get worse.

Gee, who would have thought fresh water would be so difficult on coral atolls, especially when you pollute them? But, hey, it has to be Hotcoldwetdry, right? Could not be anything else, right? So Other People have to be forced to give money and

While we struggle to respond to today’s crisis, we know that further crises lie ahead. Climate change has become the No. 1 threat to my country.

Seems like it would be to stop polluting your islands and.realize that they’re in the middle of the ocean, not the most conductive place to live.

I had really wanted to stop after the last excerpt and drop a facepalm GIF, but

In early September, we will host the 44th Pacific Islands Forum summit, bringing together leaders from the Pacific islands, Australia and New Zealand, as well as dialogue partners from many of the world’s biggest emitters of greenhouse gases, including the United States, China, the European Union, India, Japan and Canada…

So they say that “climate change” from GHGs is killing them, yet they’re going to host a conference to which people are going to take lots of fossil fueled flights?

    it couldn’t be cause there are too many people drawing too much water from a limited source?

    Gummie that sounds like rev Pat Robertson saying that the reason for the tornados was that people in the mid west were not praying enough. And that God shouldn’t be blamed because people CHOOSE to live in tornado alley

    It’s simple: Too many people using a limited water supply. They’ve drained it down to nothing but realize they can get a nice payout if they scream, “Global warming!”

    Sorry, but Climategate was a real eye opener to the lies, data manipulation, and dirty tricks by Left wing environmentalist wackos.

    We’ve been told for decades – DECADES – that we were going to see cities under water, islands under water, food riots, world covered in glaciers, world covered in deserts, mass extinctions, humanity dying off by the millions and billions, food shortages, no more oil/gas/coal, record numbers of hurricanes, tornadoes, snowstorms, or no weather at all…
    So far, NONE of it has come true.
    And why is it that the biggest names in this climate change hoax are the ones who do the least? Al Gore is more than happy to start a carbon trading market where HE gets the most money. While HE flies around on jets, or sails on his enormous houseboat, or travels back and forth to his mansions. But let one of us as much as turn our heat up one degree in the winter and we’re killing off the planet.

    You alarmists always telling us to do less with less while you do more with more – do YOU recycle metal plastic or paper? Do YOU have a garden? Do YOU have a compost pile? Do YOU unplug your appliances when not in use? Do YOU cut up six pack rings? Do YOU have a rain catcher? Do YOU fast or go without meat once a week? Do you recycle batteries or grocery bags? Do you go without a shower one day a week? What do YOU do, exactly, besides tell US what we can and can’t do?

    You ‘environmentalists’ are exactly what Limbaugh predicted years ago – you fled Communism for the Green movement. You really are like watermelons – green on the outside, red on the inside. Notice how every environmentalist you speak to is a hardcore Leftist? You claim to be for the environment and the Earth and humanity, but you hate God, guns, America, Christians, Catholics, Jews, religion, Western civilization, democracy, the military, the family, Caucasians, corporations, profits, individualism, freedom, and most of all, the unborn. You speak of environmentalism but your real goal is dominance and subjection of your fellow man.
    Too much talk from you so-called environmentalists, and not enough action. Put your money and your lifestyles where your mouths are.
