Climate change refugees leaving Carterets Island. Due to rising sea waters from global warming, some 1500 residents of Carterets Island in Papua, New Guinea, are being forced to leave their homes. With crops and plantations already submerged and no higher land to go to, the inhabitants must leave the island altogether to relocate in Bougainville.

These South Pacific islanders are among the first to be named as environmental refugees in moves that have been driven by climate change. We pray for the safety of all Carterets Island inhabitants as they make their way from their beloved homeland. With Heaven’s grace, may conditions such as these stabilize as we work together to halt the effects of global warming.
