Termite and climate change

Sarita Lal, Malolo St, Lautoka
Wednesday, November 01, 2017

The Asian subterranean termites having been causing widespread destruction to many homes in the Western Division.

An extremely expensive affair, families have been relocating to termite free areas and many have been replacing infested walls and the ceiling of their homes with new building material.

I believe the havoc has been as damaging as climate change or probably more. The new portfolio as Minister Responsible for Climate Change would have been more suitable as Minister for Termite Eradication.

Our Prime Minister has led the world by being appointed the COP23 president and had travelled extensively abroad to address the effects of climate change and currently leading the conference in Bonn, Germany, with many government ministers.

Is he not capable of addressing climate change affecting the planet where Pacific Island nations are most vulnerable?

And who will serve our country as acting PM during the conference?

I hope the troop to Bonn will return with solutions for reversibility of climate change in exchange of the many thousands of dollars being poured in for such.
