Publisher Description

For Pacific islanders, climate change is not a threat looming somewhere in the future. Rising sea levels and unpredictable weather are having devastating effects right now. Climate change has already forced some communities to leave their traditional homes. Simon Butler spoke to two climate change activists from the Pacific about their campaign for immediate cuts to global greenhouse emissions. Pelenise Alofa Pilitati is the chairperson of the Church Education Directors' Association in Kiribati. Reverend Tafue Lusama is the chairperson of the Tuvalu Climate Action Network. They were on an Australian speaking tour through July and August, 2009, which was co-sponsored by Greenpeace and Oxfam.
