Climate Refugees - Quileute Tribe In Our Backyard

The recent devastating Tsunami and it ensuing human tragedies have awoken us all to the realities of environmental destruction, as did last year's horrific Gulf Oil Spill.

We often hear about "Climate Refugees" and I think the automatic reflex is to assume it will happen somewhere far, far away. Well, here is a Native American tribe, the Quileute Tribe, whose traditional home is in Washington State and who are facing the prospect of being Climate Refugees. Read More below...


Situated along the Pacific Ocean and bordering the Olympic National Park, the members of the tiny one square mile fishing village are placing their hopes of moving to higher ground on the recently filed Quileute Tsunami Protection legislation (HR 1162) introduced on March 17, 2011 by Congressman Norm Dicks and Senator Maria Cantwell (D).

See Video Here: 

The video is posted on the Quileute Nation website at and on the tribe’s Youtube page at .

Also, in a related Energy Item, take a look at Ralph Nader's Open Letter To The President in the current issue of The Beverly Hills Times Magazine. 


Excerpt Here: 

Let me give you an example. Months ago I wrote to inform you that several prominent environmental and energy groups, such as Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, and the Union of Concerned Scientists, were at their wit’s end trying to arrange a joint meeting with Secretary Steven Chu. He repeatedly declined to meet, though he has often met with nuclear energy business executives and has gone so far as to tout nuclear energy’s desirability in an op-ed. The environmental groups wanted a serious exchange with him on your Administration’s energy policies, including your request to Congress for very large loan guarantees by taxpayers for utilities that want to build more nuclear plants.

My letter asked you to intercede and urge Secretary Chu that it is only fair and constructive to hear what these groups have to say. There never was an answer from the White House or the Department of Energy. You know that for years many citizen advocates have worked hard to improve the federal government and they have rarely experienced such discourtesies of no replies. Perhaps you do not care. But you should know that there are people who do.  - Ralph Nader
