The Tokelau Against the Current | Delayed gratification
Took me two years and 36hrs to get to Tokelau. 2 years for a visas and 36 hrs for the 580 km long Samoa cruise. I will never forgetting to see Fakaofo, one of the three avocets that make up Tokelau, for the first visit - one of the fortresses.
It' a really deep situated tunnel, only three meters above the surface, and to prevent flooding by hurricanes, its inhabitants have included Fale, the island on which they are living, with a five meter high fortification. For four years I have been recording the effects of climatic changes on the Far East isles.
I' ve seen towns damaged by hurricanes, whitened beyond comprehension by corals and the economy damaged by dwindling fishing populations, but Tokelau is a unique upsurge. This is a great and important example of how human beings can administer their finite lands and their finite public welfare assets. I' ve been to almost 100 different places in my whole lifetime, but Tokelau is different from anywhere else.
The men of the islands go to sea and everything they capture is gathered and evenly distributed among the inhabitants of the islands. Tokelau is a New Zealand dependant area and the inhabitants of the islands earn Wellington' minimal wages, but they work as a group.
It is run by the Tokelau Council for Ongoing Government, which relocates its rendezvous point between each of the three atols, circling the Tokelau city yearly. At Fakaofo they have nominated certain isles for various missions. One is the peninsula, the other is where they put all the hogs.
There is an islet, which has been split into parcels on which all people can cereal. A whole isle is a katholic, another a prodest. Tokelau was 100% solar-powered in 2012 and was thus formally the first nation in the whole wide globe. Previously, the isles ran on fuel, but the Tokelau and New Zealand government agreed to investment in the transformation.
Every of the three atiels has its own photovoltaic system that produces more power than the island can consume. Tokelau has only three on fire and all the others have electrical gulf buggies. In Tokelau there are only three of them. Nevertheless, they consume 40 per cent of the power they generate, and they can't do anything with the other.
And as a by-product, all archipelago really do have a website with satellites: ?fast She is not only concerned about climatic changes - there is a real worry that Isis will come to Tokelau. You believe that their home is heaven - so why shouldn't Isis come? Tokelau has been experiencing the impact of the global warming for several years.
Pacific climate has changed so much that the Tokelau population can no longer tell. Humans appreciate the threats and try to adjust to them. One or two old polyynesian homes have been preserved on the island by the Tokelauers in remembrance of how; the remainder has been substituted by new, cyclone-safe homes with cement-wall.
In Fakaofo other atols follow the lake walls and build their own. years ago. It takes years to surround all the inhabited archipelago, but they will withstand. Each Tokelauan is also a New Zealand national, so they can abandon the Atoll whenever they want, but they like their country, they want to remain and do everything they can.
When they need help, it will take at least 24hrs.
