Vote Earth or Global Warming

Makereta Komai
Climate Pasifika

7 December, Copenhagen Denmark - WWF set up two inflatable gates at the entrance to Bella Centre, the venue of UNFCCC conference of the Parties (COP15) asking the thousands of delegates coming through to make a conscious vote – “Vote for Earth or Global Warming.”

For the half an hour that Pacific Communications Team journalist, Makereta Komai was there, over 90 percent of the delegates walked through the “Vote Earth’ gate, to the applause of WWF activists and the media present.

It was good to observe that many of the Pacific delegates that passed through voted on their conscience and chose an ambitious and binding deal on climate change. That is the hope and expectation Pacific delegates here hope to secure for our almost 9 million population at the end of the two weeks negotiations in the Danish city of Copenhagen!
