Marshall Islands head: We must tame ‘climate change monster’

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Marshall Islands President David Kabua called for world leaders gathered at the U.N. General Assembly to declare war on what he calls “the climate change monster.” He called it this century’s greatest challenge. Kabua bemoaned the fact that the world has still not broken its addiction to fossil fuels. He urged leaders to drastically increase renewable energy while also taking on sectors that rely on fossil fuels, including aviation and shipping. Kabua also described his growing concerns over nuclear weapons testing and detonation, which has impacted human rights, land, culture, health and lives.
