Migrants face changing climate

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

a good write up, worth reading
"The rainy season is no longer the rainy season, nor is summer like summer any more," said Lin Na. "I can't remember when exactly the unpredictable weather started. But our crops started failing.
Once deemed part of the "great green belt" of Cambodia, Prey Veng sits on the floodplains of the eastern bank of the Mekong River. Farmers used to enjoy seasonal flooding that brought nutrient-rich sediments to the soil and lush forest. But the province has lost much of its pristine character due to environmental degradation and man-made natural disaster

Today the logging industry is riddled with corruption from having to meet demand for timber in the black market.

Climate change is expected to lead to a surge in internal and international migrants seeking refuge from extreme weather conditions, sea rising and crop failure -- threats that remain serious should we fail to limit global temperature rise to well below 1.5 degrees Celsius.

In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST
