This week the island of Guam has been in the media, amid the continuing challenges in relations between the U.S. and North Korea. In a new article published by the New York Times observers lament that the island has bigger problems looming beyond the possibility of an attack from North Korea, climate change. Climate change is likely to bring about "shifts in weather, temperature and oceanic acidity, " so says the Environmental Protection Agency. Analyst who have spoken on the issue say in the coming years, increased heat waves, tropical storms and the destruction of Guams coral reefs, could lead to people suffering heat stress, while also adversely affecting the Islands travel industry, which currently boast $1.4billion in revenue from the tourism sector.
