In this week’s climate quickie, we hear from Josephine Latu-Sanft, an international communications expert and native Tongan on why climate doomism needs a reset. Being from a climate-vulnerable nation herself – the South Pacific Island of Tonga – Josephine shares the impact of being depicted in global media as powerless victims, moments away from total inundation or annihilation, and how we can reframe the representation of climate-vulnerable communities.
