Did you notice the Irony? (11) Climate Refugees

Did you ever notice the irony that lies in

  • us flying to the Maldives, the Seychelles, to Easter Island and everywhere else,
  • thus destroying the world climate with our CO2 emissions,
  • but when climate refugees try to come to Europe because their islands are being consumed by rising sea levels or because their land is being turned into desert by the increasing heat, then we turn them away?
"We sure hope you did enjoy your holidays on our islands - when they were still there."

“We sure hope you did enjoy your holidays on our islands – when they were still there.”

About Andreas Moser

You will most likely find me in the forest, next to the lake, reading a book. Just follow the cigar smoke!

    That’s pretty sad. I know Kiribati is expected to be completely swallowed by the sea in twenty years. The inhabitants are already beginning an exodus primarily to Hawaii and New Zealand, I’m not sure how they’re being received in either location.

    ‘I’m alright Jack, pull the ladder up’ is an Brit/Oz/Kiwi expression that fits this awful situation quite well
