|原始语种摘要：||This paper explores how the idea of climate change travels to the islands of Micronesia and how discourses are translated in radically different ways in local life-worlds. Building on long-term fieldwork in Chuuk, the paper first conceptualizes climate change as a ‘travelling idea’ which takes its departure to the islandscape of Oceania in ‘Western’ island conceptions of ‘insularity’ and feed the ‘vulnerability trajectories’ that turned the islands into the world’s canary for the impact of climate change. It secondly examines why the issue of climate change remains a non-topic or a secondary aspect to many of the islanders, who are simultaneously put at the frontline in the global campaign against global warming.|
