Development and Energy Minister James Fletcher in an interview with BBC said that climate change would be devastating to St. Lucia and it’s most important assets.

Minister Fletcher was speaking while leading a delegation to the climate change conference COP21 in Paris on Saturday. He went on to add that most of the country’s key installations including power plants, airports, seaports and population areas are located on the coast and that a 1-2 metre rise in sea levels would devastate the country as a result.

The minister referred to damages sustained from events linked to climate change which are already having an impact on water supply and also on natural attractions such as coral reefs.

A deal to attempt to limit the rise in global temperatures to less than 2C has been agreed on at the climate change summit in Paris after two weeks of negotiations. World leaders including US President Barack Obama praised the deal with the White House referring to it as “the most ambitious climate change agreement in history”.

  4. Fletcher is just another one of the climate change moochers who claim facts on climate change that has been proven fraudalent over and over.
    The climate change alarmists are just a bunch of opportunists who get billions from our worlds tax payers to fund their high carbon footprint as they fly all over the world staying in $300/nigh rooms and going to top restaurants.

    Fletcher has used his position in the government to do nothing useful but just push and build up his credentials for the alleged $500,000 job in the climate change scam.
    Useless as a government minister and will be useless as one of the climate change alarmists just padding their pockets.
