January 2014 Slab of the Month Winner: Tarr Gigante

Congratulations to Mr. Josh Tarr with his absurdly stout Gigante taken on a recent trip to Isla de Christmas with Crump and K8 @ Frigate Adventure Travel.  Josh, my good friend, this is special for reasons many can't grasp.

After a successful day of catching and releasing Giant Trevallies, you get to fly one of these.

Drowning Kiribati

Kirimati, AKA Christmas Island, is one of the 33 small islands which make up the world's lowest-lying nation, Kiribati.

The 103,000 citizens of Kiribati may soon become refugees, perhaps the first mass movement of people fleeing the consequences of global warming rather than war or famine.

Having your homeland engulfed by the ocean because of climate change doesn’t make you a refugee, or so the High Court of New Zealand ruled last week when it dismissed the case of Ioane Teitiota, a man from the low-lying Pacific island nation of Kiribati.

If the I-Kiribati (the term for Kiribati nationals) and other Pacific islanders are not refugees, the question remains, what are they—and what conventions can be put in place to protect them?
