Climate change side effects

Call it global warming, climate change, major @#$%^*-up, there is something that we are not doing right on this planet. And until proven otherwise to me, the most likely culprits are greenhouse gases, and we know which countries produce the most of those. And some countries are already paying for it:
Pacific Islands: PINA and Pacific: "The Prime Minister of Tuvalu, Maatia Toafa says resettlement of the people of Tuvalu to neighbouring island countries is really the last option on their mind.

Mr Toafa told PACNEWS his government will look at all viable options before making a decision but it hopes that Tuvaluans will not be forced out of their motherland.

“It is a complex procedure to follow. This would be the last resort for Tuvalu to look at resettlement to Fiji or the other Pacific Islands neighbours as well,” he said

“I hope that it won’t happen. We would try our very best,” he said."
Just because Tuvalu is probably the smallest country member of the UN (or at least one of them, and definitely the most recent member), doesn't mean they do not count on the world scene. And they are not the only Island nation at risk here. Why it is that the wealthy on this planet are not willing to consider any possible issue that do not fit their svheming plans, I wonder...
