US and Japanese experts warn that Tuvalu Island will be uninhabitable and disappear in the ocean in the coming decade due to greenhouse effect and climate change.
Residents in this tiny Pacific island are likely to become Climate refugees.
10000 Tuvaluans lose the natural habitat and their lovely home and resident will be forced to migrate. That’s not just an environmental problem, but an international political issue.
Some countries don’t accept their applications, some impose immigration quota towards them.
The Tuvaluans are obviously poor victims. There is lack of concern on their adversity. No countries are willing to accept this threat at present. They are bullied by the economically strong countries.
Global warming causes melting of polar ice, leading to the rising sea level
This is the consequence of human activities like burning of fossil fuels and air pollution mainly in US, Japan and China. Global problem relates to everyone in the world. Every country has the responsibility, especially those who are responsible for the main source on emission of greenhouse gas.
Therefore, we should be environmentally friendly from now on, starting from our daily life. That can save us, our future generations and also the Earth.
