Islands want UN to see climate as security threat

Published: 02.16.13, 09:07 / Israel News

The Marshall Islands and other low-lying island nations appealed to the UN Security Council on Friday to recognize climate change as an international security threat that jeopardizes their very survival.

 

Tony deBrum, a minister and assistant to the Marshall Islands president, said the island nations are facing opposition from Security Council permanent members Russia and China and a group of more than 130 mainly developing nations, which argue that the UN's most powerful body is the wrong place to address climate change.
