It is tragic what Irma did to the island of Barbuda but it is even more tragic that Ronald Sanders is in a position of authority. If I was to be kind I would say his comments are ludicrous but the truth is they are asinine. A few examples:
“The damage is complete,” says Ambassador Ronald Sanders, who has served as Antigua and Barbuda’s ambassador to the U.S. since 2015. “For the first time in 300 years, there’s not a single living person on the island of Barbuda — a civilization that has existed on that island for over 300 years has now been extinguished.”
“We believe climate change is here to stay — it’s a reality, despite all of the naysayers,” he says. “We know that these things have occurred as a result of the profligacy of the countries that are rich, and have abused the system. We, unfortunately, who contribute less than naught point naught percent of pollution of the world’s atmosphere, are the world’s greatest victims.”
I wonder if the genius ambassador has ever seen these charts?
So it would be proper to feel sorry for the people of Barbuda and the monumental task ahead of them to rebuild but it would be even more proper to feel extra sorry for them for being represented by such a politically correct dolt.
