Where we are divided

Re: President Trump and climate change 

I don’t have to go far to know something is definitely changing with the 

weather pattern even my village in Savaii (western most).

The sea have moved up ( half a metre ) from where it used to 20 or 30 years ago. At low tide the sea covers the whole sand area while the high tide goes right up to the coconut roots and the king tide is just a few metres from the main road. 

I guess we all agree something is happening but we are divided (like the rest of the world) about the cause, weather it’s man made or nature.
