Thursday, September 25th , two days after the Climate Summit in New York that brought together 120 heads of government to discuss measures to climate change.

President Obama signed a proclamation  creating the largest marine reserve in the world with expansion of  Pacific Remote Islands of Howland, Baker and Jarvis and Johnston, Palmyra and Wake atolls and the Kingman Reef.

The reserve means protection to coral reefs and unique marine ecosystems threatened by overfishing and by the effects of climate change. Obama’s action reinforces his willingness to deal with environmental issues through executive action in the face of stiff Republican opposition in Congress.
