Palau seeks Security Council protection on climate change - Global Dashboard – Blog covering International affairs and global risks

Palau seeks Security Council protection on climate change 

The tiny Pacific small island state of Palau has just announced that it’ll be formally requesting protection from the Security Council on climate change and rising sea levels- and co-sponsoring a binding Security Council Resolution calling for mandatory emissions caps. 
It’s not the first time that climate change has appeared on the Security Council’s agenda (the UK tabled it last April, as we reported at the time), but Palau’s bid is different both in calling for mandatory action – and in the fact that for Palau, the security threat posed by climate change is not just more direct than in the case of the UK, but positively existential. Stuart Beck, Palau’s Ambassador to the UN, said last week:
It is the obligation of the Security Council to prevent an aggravation of the situation … Larger countries can build dikes, and move to higher ground. This is not feasible for the small island states who must simply stand by and watch their cultures vanish.
Privately, advisors to Palau admit that the Resolution is almost certain to be shot down – but they add that they’re just going to keep submitting it to the Security Council, every session from now on, until it gets debated and one day adopted, in a steadfast effort that’s almost like civil disobedience.  This is really smart politics.  Watch this coalition grow.

Gadget of the Month:Solar Powered Stainless Steel Blue Deck Lights

These Stainless Steel Blue Deck Lights are a great way to light up your decking, gravel areas and pathways. The lights use bright blue toned LEDs to provide illumination once dusk has fallen that are powered from eco-friendly electricity.

The Solar Powered Stainless Steel Blue Deck Lights are available in packs of 4. Each spotlight contains a single ultra bright LED situated in the middle of the light with solar paneling surrounding it. The solar paneling converts the sunlight available during the day into electricity which is stored in the batteries contained within the spotlight. Each spotlight therefore is a self contained unit which allows them to be placed as far apart from each other as desired.

Every spotlight has a stainless steel surround which provides a modern and appealing look which combines well with the blue of the light. Each spotlight measures 10 cm (3.9 in) in diameter and has a depth of 5 cm (2 in). Some thought must be given in placing the lights to ensure that the solar panel within each one receives enough sunlight during the day. The lights automatically illuminate once darkness is sensed.

The Solar Powered Stainless Steel Blue Deck Lights are easy to install and require no complicated wiring nor any long term running costs. The spotlights are a perfect way to illuminate the edges of decking or pathways to ensure added safety to those using your outdoor areas.

The Solar-Powered Blue Deck Lights are just £24.99 for a pack of 4.
