On the third day of the COP26 climate conference, Surangel Whipps Jr., president of the Pacific island nation of Palau, reprimanded the leaders of wealthy countries, telling the world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitters: “You might as well bomb our islands.”

“We see the scorching sun is giving us intolerable heat, the warming sea is invading us, and the winds are blowing us every which way,” Whipps said Tuesday. “Our resources are disappearing before our eyes and our future is being robbed from us.”

“Frankly speaking,” he continued, “there is no dignity to a slow and painful death—you might as well bomb our islands instead of making us suffer only to witness our slow and fateful demise.”
