Journey to the Sinking Lands

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

Alertnet

A very nice lady from Reuters called me up the other day to talk about the Carterets. You can read what she had to say here – it’s a nicely considered piece with a good focus on what I think is the most important thing about the evacuation of the islands, which is that we should be paying them more attention as a case study of something we will see a whole lot more of soon all around the world (more on this subject soon).

Also, the first of the regional lectures I am giving on the trip is next Thursday at the Stamford Arts Centre in Lincolnshire, so buy a ticket while they’re hot. At the very least it’s an increasingly-rare chance to catch me wearing a suit…
