I’ve suspected for a while that Tuvalu is going to essentially go extinct within my lifetime, as far as its habitability. Try telling those people that climate change is a myth…
The small Pacific island nation of Tuvalu has declared a state of emergency because of a shortage of rain and says it may run out of water by Tuesday.
Pefe said the situation has become dire after six or seven months without adequate or sustained rainfall. He said that forecasts suggest that Tuvalu and other Pacific islands will not receive “decent” amounts of rain until perhaps December.
“We need emergency support,” Pefe said.
Pefe said that residents should not drink well water because it may not be safe. Some animals that have been drinking well water suddenly died, he said.
