They say the EU is the largest economy in the world (which is true) and that without EU membership, Britain would become an obscure insignificant island. Such Eurofanatics also assert Britain is not strong enough, Britain is not influential enough, Britain is not good enough on her own. But let me tell you this folks, if Tuvalu, a small island of 10 miles wide in the Pacific ocean is big enough to sign a trade agreement with China without EU approval, then so is the 5th largest economy in the world, so is 1 of 5 members of the UN security council, and so is the home to 2 billion worldwide English speakers today.
According to EU regulations, the 2500 square miles of territorial fishing waters we own must now be shared with each of the other 27 member states. Now, other countries such as Spain and Belgium have established fishing enterprises in our waters exploiting our natural resources at the expense of our fishermen. The EU also mandated that thousands of tons of fish which were since killed must be dumped back into the water for “conservation purposes.” Such…
world. The human activities are the major cause of climate change in the world, which is destroying this planet and causing natural disasters.
According to Leslie Allen in the article “Will Tuvalu Disappear Beneath the Sea?”. People pf Tuvalu are leaving the island because of the rising sea level and frequent hurricanes and storms. The major reason of the rising sea level and natural disasters is the climate changing. The climate of the earth is rapidly changing…
The nation of Tuvalu is proud to be part of the United Nations General Assembly seeking to “examine potential threats to territorial sovereignty and security as a result of Cyber Terrorism, produce effective legislation on the production, stockpiling, and use of biological and chemical weaponry, and discuss the militarization and weaponization of space” (Mahmoudi 2). These issues are important to Tuvalu because we understand that one country affected by any of these actions will cause a global…
cheap and non-nutritious food. United Nations for Women (2014) focuses on the impact of climate change on women, the role they have in sustainable food production and ways to reduce gender inequality. Other sources focus on the future of the South Pacific Islands and the impact the implementations of specific policies can have on increasing food security. Morrell & Scialabba El-Hage (2009) and the Asian Development Bank (2012) both these potential policies in depth and suggest new policies.…
Humans have also been greatly impacted by the major increase in pollution. The island of Tuvalu in Oceania was once a gorgeous island full of color and life; a great tourist spot. In recent years, though, the island has become altered with garbage, plastic being amongst the most predominately found pieces of trash. With such a large mass of garbage, the beauty is masked and ruined, becoming a landfill. "People were just throwing plastic outside," says Jo Ruxton, director of the movie A Plastic…

growth, which generates more aggregate environmental problems (albeit at a slower rate) (Eckersley, 254). It does make development harder for southern countries. They must abide by carbon caps and they still must rely upon northern countries for transfers of technology. They are not allowed to develop in the quick way that many northern countries did after degrading the environment through the industrial revolution and many wars. Some sustainable development models include flexibility…
one has to do is keep recyclable materials (such as paper, beverage containers, newspapers, etc.) separate from the other garbage and leave it out to be picked up one day a week. So easy it hurts.
The places in which it is easiest to observe the effects of climate change are low-lying islands. All across the Pacific, island-dwellers are reporting similar changes in the sea level. Because island communities are usually less dependent on electricity and are usually more connected to nature, it…

estimated that 90% of this heat is heading to the ocean which has a big effect on marine life (http://www.businessinsider.com/ocean-is-absorbing-heat-from-climate-change-2015-8). Tropical areas in the Pacific ocean and the Indian ocean are experiencing a significant effect on the rising temperatures across the globe. This is setting a stage for major coral bleaching, something that happens when corals are under stress. When this occurs, the corals expel symbiotic algae that live in their tissues…
