From George Monbiot’s blog at guardian.co.uk:
Journalists – they’re never around when you want one. Two weeks ago a momentous event occurred: the beginning of the world’s first evacuation of an entire people as a result of manmade global warming. It has been marked so far by one blog post for the Ecologist and an article in the Solomon Times*. Where is everyone?
And where, pray tell, was George when the islands were fighting back at the United Nations? Likewise Nicholas Schmidle, who last weekend in the New York Times Magazine covered another threatened island nation with which our readers are all too familiar.
