An alarming portent...hope for KIRIBATI

Are we about to have the very first refugees of global warming? The country of Kiribati(pronounced kee-ree-bus) set beautifully at the Pacific Northeast of Australia is at its most subtle and euphemistic way of saying...slowly disappearing. With the Kyoto Protocol still hanging over coat hangers of Australia and the United States; aggressive entities will keep on pushing for zero emissions as much as the world can push. Kiribati President Anote Tong, as he seeks all support for his country and people, diversifies with utmost energy to let the whole world know that maybe Kiribati men women and children would not have to leave at all, over becoming refugees of Global Warming. Other neighboring islands are also at risk, Vanuatu, Tuvalu, the Marshall Islands and most probably islands of Micronesia will be greatly affected. With 92,000 Kiribati residents, the magnitude sets a whistling toll.
