COP 21 – The Climate Change Conference
The Dean has just returned home from participating and presenting in a side even at the Paris Climate Change Conference. Fr Keith's blogs are to be found on the Climate Change Page, and give a day to day account of the highs and lows of his two weeks in Paris along with Fr Nigel Kelaepa, from the Solomon Islands. Fr Nigel gave a very powerful account of the sufferings of his people on the atoll of Ontong Java, as they lose their home. Two pictures from Fr Nigel's account perhaps convey this very powerfully. The first shows his home village on Ontong Java, on a moonlit night (picture courtesy of Ben Knight of Displacement Solutions). The second shows him looking for the grave of his great grandmother, now claimed by the rising sea.
