Meanwhile, indigenous peoples in Malaysia and Indonesia have been uprooted by the aggressive expansion of oil palm plantations for bio-fuel production. Also, the cemeteries of nuclear waste and the construction of hydroelectric dams displace indigenous peoples from their ancestral territories climate change impacts on indigenous peoples throughout the world include: In tropical and subtropical areas, the increase in diseases associated with higher temperatures and vector-borne and waterborne diseases like cholera, malaria and dengue fever, drought and desertification, lead to more forest fires that disrupt subsistence agriculture, hunting and gathering subsistence and the serious loss of biodiversity; Different seasonal changes in the appearance of birds, the blooming of the flowers, etc. are now occurring before or disconnected from the regular season or weather patterns; In the arid and semi-arid : excessive rainfall and prolonged droughts and dust storms that damage grasslands, crops, other crops and livestock; In the Arctic, waves stronger, the thawing of permafrost and the mountain glaciers and melting sea ice, coastal erosion and river banks, smaller populations of animals and the introduction of new marine species due to changes in animal desplazamientod and migratory routes; In boreal forests, new types of insects and insect life longer endemic (eg spruce beetles) that destroy trees and other vegetation in coastal regions and small island developing States, erosion, hurricanes and typhoons stronger, cause loss of freshwater supplies, land, mangrove forests and the dislocation (environmental refugees) Increasing food insecurity due to declining fish stocks and coral bleaching, loss of crops by harmful pests (eg locusts, rats, beetles, conifers, etc), and increased food costs due to competition with demand for biofuels; Extreme and unprecedented cold spells resulting health problems (eg hypothermia, bronchitis and pneumonia, especially for the elderly and children). It is interesting to note that some measures to stop global warming are at risk of being so damaging to indigenous peoples as climate change itself, according to a new report by the indigenous rights organization Survival International. The report, more uncomfortable truth of all: climate change and indigenous peoples, lists four “mitigating measures” key that threaten indigenous peoples: 1. Biofuels: promoted as a source of green energy compared to fossil fuels, much of the land they cultivate is the ancestral land of indigenous peoples. If the expansion of biofuels continues as planned, millions of Indians around the world will run out of their land and without their livelihood.
2. Hydropower: a new boom in the construction of dams on behalf of the fight against climate change is driving thousands of Indians from their homes. 3. Forest conservation: in order to “offset the damage” of global warming is forcing Kenya hunter-gatherers Ogiek to leave the jungle where they have lived for hundreds of years. 4. Offset carbon emissions: forests of indigenous peoples now have an economic value in the growing market for carbon credits. ” The Indians believe that this will lead to forced evictions and the “theft of our land.”
