Island Countries May Be Underwater As Global Warming Increases

As a shamanic student my teachers advised me to choose my responsibilities carefully. As an individual and a shaman I am feeling called to work toward reversing the trend of global warming, a trend that threatens all of the inhabitants of Pachamama, Mother Earth. Our so-called advanced civilization created this crisis, it is time for each of us to accept responsibility and to unite to create positive change. The following call for action came from

“Imagine the sea rising around you as your country literally disappears beneath your feet, where the food you grow and the water you drink is being destroyed by salt, and your last chance is to seek refuge in other lands where climate refugees have no official status. This is not a dream, it’s the fearful reality for millions of people who live on islands around the world, from the Maldives to Papua New Guinea.

“That is why these small islands are planning the unprecedented step next week, ahead of the UN General Assembly meeting, of calling on the Security Council itself to address climate change as a pressing threat to international peace and security.

“This is a creative move born of desperation, a challenge to global powers to end their complacency and tackle this lethal crisis with the urgency of wars. This effort could help shift the tenor of the world’s debate — from a far-off storm cloud to a life-threatening crisis here and now. But the island states’ campaign will meet fierce opposition from the world’s biggest polluters, so they need our help.

Sign the petition now to raise a worldwide chorus of support for this call — our signatures will be presented to the UN by the islands’ ambassadors as they introduce their resolution next week.”

Breaking News: Maldive President Nasheed, whose country is one of those threatened, calls for global action on October 24, 2009 by leading the first underwater demonstration. On October 17 he held an underwater global cabinet summit to draw attention to the international treaty meeting in Copenhagen in December.

  3. Hi, I am a guide dog raiser in Seattle, WA. The puppy I am currently raising is named Shep. I love your blog and I love reading about other people’s animal/pet experiences. I also have a website where I sell pet supplies and i have a blog on it also about guide dogs. I built the site to try and help raise money for guide dogs and other animal charities. Also it would be a huge help if you would like to do a post about guide dogs and my website and maybe add a link to my site on your blog somewhere. thanks, my email is

  4. lol many of the comments bloggers write make me laugh, in some cases i wonder if they actually read the pieces and items before leaving a comment or if perhaps they only just look at the post title and jot down the very first thing that pops into their brain. at any rate, it is pleasant to look over sensible commentary now and then compared to the identical, traditional post vomit that i typically notice on the net i’m off to enjoy a smattering of hands of facebook poker cheers
