Governor brings Micronesia's climate concerns to forefront

by Krystal Paco

Guam - Climate issues in Micronesia were brought to the forefront as Governor Eddie Calvo recently attending meetings for the President's Climate Change Task Force in the nation's capitol.  The governor says the timing could not have been more perfect, as he had wrapped up discussion at the Micronesian Chief Executive's Summit. 

Concerns had been raised about the heating of the waters and other climate change impacts to low lying islands in Micronesia. Calvo said, "Climate change has dire impacts on whether it's environmental like an island being wiped or a very heavy toll on its gross national product; that should also be some reason for how we look at formulas for rendering assistance in terms of adaptation."

The governor says he has some key staff working with the President's task force to ensure Guam and Micronesia's agendas move forward.
