Hier die offizielle Pressemitteilung:

Former Republic of the Marshall Islands Foreign Minister Tony de Brum, a champion of climate change awareness, died Tuesday morning, according to the Marshall Islands’ president’s office.

As foreign minister, de Brum, 72, used his position to bring the issue of climate change before the United Nations and raise awareness of the impacts it will have globally, news files state. He visited Guam last year as the keynote speaker for the Seventh Regional Conference on Island Sustainability.

Julian Aguon, the Guam Legislature’s legal counsel, said de Brum died at his Majuro home, surrounded by his wife and kids, around 9 a.m. Tuesday. A few weeks ago, Aguon said he visited de Brum in Hawaii, where de Brum said he wished to get back home to Majuro.
