As he finishes holidaying in Hawaii Barack Obama will see an interested ad, taken in the main Hawaii newspaper by the League of Women Voters. It comes a few days afterthe release of a federal report that warns of significant impacts of climate change on the Hawaiian archipelago.

The Department of the Interior's Pacific Islands Regional Climate Assessment has shown  dire predictions for Hawaii, including  rising sea levels that could result in coastal flooding or erosion. These impacts would hurt "coastal infrastructure and agriculture, impact tourism, and negatively affect ecosystems and endangered species," the report warned.
