Sometimes you really feel that history is writing itself under our eyes.
The first tanker with north pole oil is entering Rotterdam harbor. The weather report is telling Paris’ residents to stay in due to heavily polluted air. New Zealand’s court denied access to the first climate change fugitives from Kiribati, an island that will soon be swallowed by the Pacific Ocean. New Zealand claims the problem is environmental, not political and therefor a responsibility for the international community.
Meanwhile we got news that this winter we will be sheltering some environmental refugees of our own. As New Delhi smog figures will probably reach a new record hight and we still have very clean air here in the mountains. We will welcome them with open arms and remember to honour our precious blue ball. Clean air and clean water have no price.
