The climate change has impacted Nauru,Pacific island nation,world’s smallest independent republic,so much so that draught last for seven or eight years.

A byline report by CNN’s Tim Lister quotes Nauru’s foreign minister Kieren Keke,who grew up on the tiny island nation,saying that when he was a child,the weather pattern was predictable. “There was a wet season and a dry season, an annual cycle. When there was drought, it was limited.”

But “”Now it’s different,” CNN’s report quotes him as saying.”There’s no predictability — periods of drought can last seven or eight years, and when we get storms they are more intense. The coastline is being eroded. Now the sea is right up to people’s doorsteps.”
