World Environment Day
The Fiji Times have a cartoon which is a bit too realistic and over-simplifies the situation of Fiji and a cleaner environment.
One of the stories today on our media (radio and TV) is that Kiribas people are seeking a new home as their islands become drenched with high tides. Tuvalu is the same of course.
So from the small details about cleaning up our environment to serious issues such as the sea rising, it's time to be serious about our world's natural resources. I won't talk about the little fishies in the reefs of Macuata - once we boasted about how responsible our people there were being in making a tabu on the reef, then, blow me down, they messed up when they caught all of those turtles to feed the talatalas at the conference at Naduri. Such are the contradictions of life.
