Journey to the Sinking Lands

A witness to the world's first evacuation of an entire people due to climate change

Independent minds

Thanks to all of those who sent me the link to this video about the Carteret Islands, hosted by The Independent newspaper. It’s an interesting piece of work, as are the comments that follow it. Climate change really stirs up the poison in people but the argument they are putting forward – that the islands are sinking due to geological processes, not climate change is worth investigating. 

I’ll get back to you.
