Foreign Minister In Suit And Tie Gives A Speech While Knee-Deep In Water
Global warming is an issue that cannot be ignored anymore. The effects climate change is having on the world are evident and cannot be overlooked. People and companies have gotten better at handling pollution but that is not enough. This is a global effort if we wish to undo all the wrongs we have done for centuries. This is because the small island nations across the globe are the ones who will pay the price for our mistakes. The loss of life and mass destruction is going to be on an unprecedented scale.
The minister responsible for this breaking news is Tuvalu’s foreign minister. Simon Kofe is the minister in charge who delivered a speech to the climate summit COP26 while standing knee-deep in the ocean. This was to send a message.
2How did it look?
The message was recorded via video and showed the minister knee-deep in the ocean wearing a full suit and tie delivering his speech. This video was made in the nation’s capital Funafuti. This was done in an effort to raise awareness about global warming.
3What did the minister say?
“The statement juxtaposes the COP26 setting with the real-life situations faced in Tuvalu due to the impacts of climate change and sea-level rise and highlights the bold action Tuvalu is taking to address the very pressing issues of human mobility under climate change.”
4What was he talking about?
The minister was trying to raise awareness about how global warming is resulting in the rising tides. How the world isn’t taking any action against it and how countries like his that are islands will be the first to suffer the dire consequences.
