Cop26: ‘You might as well bomb us,’ says president of Palau – video


The president of the Pacific island state of Palau has told the Cop26 summit that parallels could be drawn between the climate crisis and the traditional Palau story of a boy who grew into a giant and ‘wouldn’t stop growing … depleting all the natural resources’. Surangel Whipps Jr said the story was ‘eerily reminiscent’ of today’s climate crisis. Speaking about the environmental impact on island nations, he added: ‘There is no dignity to a slow and painful death: you might as well bomb our islands’
