Talofa Tuvalu!

After about two hours, the old and shaky aircraft is reaching Funafuti. We can see Fongafale (the main islet of the atoll of Funafuti – this whole island/country-thing is complicated) and the other islets. Fongafale is super slim – about 400 meters wide – and pretty long – around 12 km from north to south.

Stoltenbergs opening statement COP16

The Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenbergs first speech here in Cancun. He didn’t mention a second commitment period of the Kyotoprotocol, nor mitigation targets in developing countries. How can he travel all the way to Cancun without any substantial expectations?

Fast-start under pressure

Rich countries claim that they have mobilized 27 billion dollars for adaptation and mitigation in developing countries – close to the Copenhagen promises of 30 billion (2010 -12) – but are the numbers really true?

Rich vs. Poor – will the poor have to lead?

(Norwegian) Spenningene mellom fattige og rike land bunner i en total mangel på tillitt og det enorme urettferdighetsperspektivet som ligger i klimakrisen. De fattige landene har enda ikke sett noen ordentlige tiltak fra de rike landene for å faktisk gjøre store kutt i klimagassutslippene. De har heller ikke sett noen av de kompensasjonspengene som de har vært lovet siden Rio i 1992.

(Norwegian) Stille før stormen? (den som ser på deltar!)

(Norwegian) Norge skal og bør holde på posisjonen om å gå inn i en ny forpliktelsesperiode. Som verdens rikeste land som i tillegg har tjent seg rik på å utvinne fossile energikilder – har vi et ansvar og om noen kan sette et eksempel – er det oss! Og verden trenger et ekstempel!

Don’t forget your bathing suit

…we are going to the climate talks! Spire is in place in Cancun and we can immediately say that if there is anything that is changed from Copenhagen – it must be the weather.

(Norwegian) Østkantavisa: Blogger fra Stillehavet

OSLO: Miljøforkjemperen Lan Marie Nguyen Berg, bosatt i Kværnerbyen, reiser om en måneds tid av gårde til Tuvalu. En øygruppe i Stillehavet. Som så vidt stikker opp av havet. Høyeste «fjell» rager hele fem meter opp. Fritt Ord Lan Marie Nguyen Berg har fått penger fra Fritt Ord for blogge om sine inntrykk fra Tuvalu. [...]
