in Bridgetown, Barbados
Climate change is not an academic matter, it is
Caricom chairman and St Vincent and the Grenadines
Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves made this point
on Thursday, as he called on small islands to raise their
voices against developed nations whose "irresponsibility"
in the past has now placed the very survival of small
islands in jeopardy.
Gonsalves, addressing the United Nations Environ-
ment Programme (UNEP) World Environment Day
celebrations at Independence Square, Bridgetown, Bar-
bados, said small islands must stand up and make their
voices heard if change is
to take place. These
islands, he said, are not
the ones responsible for
the current climate issues,
but they are the ones
experiencing the ravaging
impacts of coastal erosion
and extreme weather
"We in the small island
developing states make
very little contribution to
greenhouse gases and the
warming of the globe of
Mother Earth, but we are on the frontline," he said.
"What happens in the United States of America and
in Europe, in China and in India and Brazil...they affect
us directly and we have to speak about those things
directly. We cannot hold a celebration with our heads
in the sand."
Gonsalves pointed out that he did not come to the
event to make a speech "that is comforting" as he
contended that developed nations do not want to sign
legally binding agreements on the question of climate
Instead, the Caricom chairman said, those nations
"would like an agreement with general declaratory
principles and with goals which are largely discretionary,
and those which are not discretionary are so absurd
as to make a mockery of the scientific findings of the
intergovernmental panel on climate change."
He said small islands face significant financial chal-
lenges to mitigate the damaging impact of climate
change, including rising sea levels, and limited resources
are given to these countries from international organ-
Gonsalves, who agreed with the theme of this year s
celebration---"Raise your voices, not the sea level,"
stressed the need for partnerships to aid in the fight
to protect vulnerable countries, such as small island
"We in the small island developing states do not
have the economic power to take on developed countries
and the emerging economies, but we have our voices
to raise and we are part of a world civilisation," he said.
Climate change, he declared, is not an academic
issue or a theoretical issue, but a reality that must be
addressed by all nations.
He pointed to extreme weather changes such as the
destruction on Christmas Eve last year when torrential
rains killed 12 people in St Lucia and caused $330
million in damage in St Vincent, and the present
drought now ravaging the country.
This, he said, is the reality of climate change and
highlights "the irresponsibility of certain countries not
to take this issue as the most serious existential question
in this world."
As part of the celebrations UNEP executive director
Achim Steiner appointed American actor Ian Somer-
Gonsalves on climate change
Caribbean facing brunt
of big countries' pollution
halder UNEP s fourth goodwill ambassador.
Somerhalder, who addressed the media at a con-
ference at the Barbados parliament building, said he
intends to use the opportunity to "amplify" the core
connection between massive global issues such as
resource efficiency, reducing food waste, protecting
wildlife and educating the youth.
