Week In Surfing Nov 22: Pacific Islander Edition

This week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel gave a speech urging Australia to reveal its plans for cutting greenhouse emissions, warning that Climate change ‘won’t stop at the Pacific Islands’. And hey great, a world leader presenting us with the reminder that we do share the world. That climate change will soon become everybody’s problem, everywhere.

But it already is, if we recognize that Pacific Islands and Pacific Islanders are part of everybody. Part of Earth’s everywhere. So when I first read Merkel’s statement I was the opposite of impressed. And so, for today’s Week In Surfing, I thought we’d take a moment to remember that Pacific Islanders are a vital, important part of our global landscape, and we aren’t willing to drown in the sea of political idiocy.
