A statement from the United Nations….

The United Nations member states, led by the island nation of Vanuatu, adopted what they described as a historic resolution on climate change on Wednesday, urging the U.N.’s top court to enhance nations’ commitments to reducing global warming and safeguarding local populations from its effects. 

Ishmael Kalsakau, the prime minister of Vanuatu, referred to the unanimous adoption of the resolution as “a win for climate justice of epic proportions.” He listed a number of recent tragedies, such as consecutive Category 4 storms in his own nation and the record-breaking Cyclone Freddy that refused to leave southeast Africa in recent weeks. The frequency of catastrophic and compound impacts like these is increasing, he claimed.
