While Pinoys in Luzon battle to keep their heads above the water, the noble men of Maldives have nosedived theirs in free-will last Saturday to co-sanction a pro-climate Resolution aim at saving the country in Indian Ocean and the rest of Island-country like ours from feared extinction.
The historical deep-blue sea plunging or wet meeting by 13 ruling Knights of the world's lowest-lying Archipelago was captain by the Chief-swimmer himself, President Mohamed Nasheed who says "there was a less talk but more action done" - foremost is the signing of a covenant with the United Nation to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions blamed for rising sea levels and spoiling the Earth's Temperature in general, thus came the boiling term Global Warming.
As we all know, this ecological issue of the Planet if not given full attention, would sure to beckon higher tides and wider landslides in the VERY near future and swipe for good the tourist-haven Island of Maldives off the Map. Unfortunately, the closest examples to pop-up in a foreign mind these days is the current turmoil in our very own R.P. - the equally-green rich Island who turned brown by Muds of late - courtesy of endless cutting of trees and rotting of rivers by no other than its supposed considerate and responsible citizens. TSK..
The President of Maldives co-signing a "life-changing" Resolution in the
presence of Legislators, and in the preying eyes of Wild Fishes and Coral Reefs (and TV Camera).
The Wet Signing
May this resolution in black and white down there be played-true and alive by adults of today for the sake of younger ones tomorrow (if there will ever be) so it wont just become another Law of the Land written in Water.
