Rising Sea Levels: Kiribatian President Anote Tong’s Call to Action, and the University of California’s New CO2-Scrubbing Micromotor
“What I would like people to be is to be human beings, to be moral human beings, and to be able to understand that what they do might be negative to those people on the other side of the world. And if they have the capacity, then they have the obligation to do something about it.” – Anote Tong, President of Kiribati, in the Arctic. Screenshot from Greenpeace’s video (below).
