Many Strong Voices // COP 15

Yesterday we got two interesting links at Cicero's news update service on climate change: “Climate change in the Arctic is a human issue, a family issue, a community issue, and an issue of cultural survival. The joining of circumpolar peoples with Pacific Island and Caribbean States is surely part of the answer in addressing these issues. Many small voices can make a loud noise. As we melt, the small developing island states sink.”

Many Strong Voices
FNs klimapanels siste hovedrapport omtaler Arktis og lavtliggende øyer i Karibien, Stillehavet og andre steder som noen av de mest sårbare områdene for klimaendringer. Alliansen Many Strong Voices skal jobbe for en internasjonal klimaavtale med omfattende globale utslippsreduksjoner.
