The care of our lands, seas, and air is the responsibility of every Chuukese citizen. The government must provide adequate funding, leadership, and programs to educate the public in the proper stewardship of our natural resources. Efforts must be made to empower the NGO’s that are dedicated to environmental issues. The problems predicted by scientists on global warming has already impacted our islands directly. Taro patches and other locally grown food products have been rendered useless due to the rising tide. The government must work directly with municipal leadership and the FEMA office in the national government to initiate long term plans and short term solutions to this impending crisis.
