Last year, I blogged about the UN resolution, proposed by 12 Pacific island states, about the national security effects of climate change. The Maldives and Tuvalu have been at the center of international political action against climate change, and they have done good work. I worry that this study will be used by those opposed to climate action as a way to sideline them from the debate. I think they still have some persuasive arguments to make that they remain at risk. We shouldn't stop sending the filmmakers, campaigners, and politicians to the Maldives or Tuvalu yet.
