“While wealthy nations mull over climate projections and agonise over potential dips in GDP, the stereotypically ebullient Pacific islanders aim to bring some steely reality to Paris. … ‘I won’t be going to Paris in a Pacific frame of mind at all.’ … ‘We say if you save Tuvalu you save the world, because if you bring down emissions enough to save us, the rest of the world will be OK.'” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/nov/02/pacific-islands-make-last-ditch-plea-to-world-before-paris-climate-change-talks)

Like the Pacific islanders, world ‘leaders’ should prepare to be inundated.

Featherwit

“The bird leaves New Zealand in March to fly some 10,000km to feeding grounds in China and the Koreas. And then in May, the godwit undertakes a 6,000km trip to western Alaska to breed and nest, before returning directly to New Zealand across the Pacific in August/September.” (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-25274483)

The godwit: the avian antithesis of the fuckwit.
