Gaston Brown: To preserve humanity

“Certainly, in the case of the Caribbean, we are feeling the effects of climate change.

We’re living it. We cannot be in denial — we’ve suffered the consequences. We’re minimal polluters, but we’re suffering disproportionate effects from climate change.
These profligate users of fossil fuel — they need to take responsibility. They have a global responsibility to reduce their climate emissions, or at least sequester them so they don’t end up in the earth’s atmosphere. It’s the responsible thing to do, to preserve humanity.”
—Gaston Brown.
