Those interested in the impact of climate change on Pacific islands might visit the website of the Isles of Scilly Earth Summit, which is currently featuring a series of short videos made during the October 2009 summit. Presentors include Ursula Rakova (Cartaret Islands, Boungainville Province, Papua New Guinea); Fiu Mataese (Samoa); Dr. John Ewan (Tiri Matangi, Aotearoa/New Zealand); as well as others representing island communities from outside the Pacific. In addition to the videos linked off the homepage, information about the speakers (and in some cases added video content) can be found under the "Earth" tab on the summit homepage.
