Seychelles: The Seychellois President wants to wake the international community on the devastating impact of global warming with Pam cyclone

The President of Seychelles, James Michel, has called out earlier this week the international community to "wake up" against the dangers of climate change, after the category 5 cyclone Pam - the largest on the scale Saffir Simpson - has hit hard the Vanuatu archipelago in the South Pacific Ocean on the night of 13 to 14 March.
"The cyclone that has just hit Vanuatu -small brother-island state with catastrophic consequences and tragic loss of human life, is a clear manifestation of climate change, some continue to deny" said the Seychellois President in a statement. "Today is the South Pacific, tomorrow it could be us," said James Michel.
"When will the international community wake up and get back to reality and focus efforts and resources into a binding agreement for reducing global warming and ensure the survival of our planet?", he asked worriedly.
For his part, the President of Vanuatu, Baldwin Lonsdale, said that climate change had greatly "contributed" to the devastating power of the meteor, with gusts recorded at 320 km / h that blew over the former condominium Franco British of New Hebrides.
