Barbados tells industrialised nations, it is time to do better

Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Mottley

Tough talk from Barbados’ Prime Minister Mia Mottley.

She tells the Climate Change Summit in Glasgow Scotland the people of Small Island developing States do not want a death sentence.

Addressing the first full day of the summit yesterday, Ms. Mottley lamented the failings of the developed and industrialised world.

She urged the international community to support a 1.5 degree Celsius mark regarding the environment.

Ms. Mottley warned that anything higher than that would constitute a “death sentence” for countries in the Caribbean.

She said promises made have not been kept and no one is being held accountable.

Prime Minister Mottley sounded warnings and made a call for help on behalf of several countries.

Nearing the end of her speech the Prime Minister said better has to be done to save the planet and the people within.

Prime Minister Mottley told the ceremony that because small States are increasingly vulnerable to the worst effects of climate change, increased global temperatures would impact these smaller, developing countries first.
