PORT LOUIS (AFP) Jan 13, 2005
The president of the Pacific atoll of Kiribati charged Thursday that polluting countries refusing to take measures to reduce global warming were waging "eco-terrorism" against small islands.
"Our future looks bleak in the face of climate change, climate variability and sea level rise," President Anote Tong told a UN conference on small islands in Mauritius.

"We regard these threats as very real," said Tong. "And as deliberate acts by some to secure benefits at the cost of others could only be compared to an act of terrorism - eco-terrorism if you wish."

The threat to these island states is very real, sea levels are rising at a steady rate established with data over the last 100 years. Sealevel is rising at a rate of 4 inches per 100 years. Yes 4 inches - 1-1/2 cm. Again the enviro-terrorist are the enviro-researchers using FEAR to fund research.
