Earlier, Mike told you about a proposal by the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) for an ambitious and legally binding outcome to the climate conference here in Copenhagen. In his post, he also included a picture of a globe here in the conference center that was missing several Pacific island nations. When we asked business center that made the globe about it, they said it was an "oversight." WTF?
Given that these small island nations will be hit the hardest by climate change even though they contributed the least to the problem, this is an extremely troubling oversight. The fate of island nations is in peril, and they depend on a strong climate treaty. So Solar Generation got together with youth from some of the island nations to send a message to the delegates here at the negotiations.
