IN FOUR YEARS, WILL PALAU OR SHISHMAREF STILL BE ON EARTH?

The New York Times, August 20, 2016

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/20/us/shishmaref-alaska-elocate-vote-climate-change.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Fus&action=click&contentCollection=us&region=rank&module=package&version=highlights&contentPlacement=8&pgtype=sectionfront

Okay, Tuvalu, Palau and Kiribati aren’t usually medal heavyweights at either the Summer or Winter Olympics. Still, this week’s closing ceremony in Rio may be the last time any athletes from those nations ever march in an Olympics parade or savor any hope of a medal — for the simple reason that climate change is wiping out those island nations, through flooding and erosion. Human-caused carbon emissions and resource destruction  are similarly destroying the Alaskan village of Shishmaref, which this week reluctantly voted to abandon its location on an eroding barrier island and relocate itself to the mainland, brick by brick. Now that climate change is literally hitting red Alaska, will the Republican politicians in that state, at least, start to take notice? (Note to Shishmaref residents: Remember to re-register to vote if you’ve changed your address.)
