amazing idea! I wouldn't be surprised if the U.K. Mission to the U.N. actually decided to champion this idea and introduce it to the U.N. After all, they were the first country to introduce the topic of climate change into the Security Council, a radical move that they justified by noting that climate change constitutes a serious threat to the security of many nations, especially those in risk of being flooded by rising sea levels.
