When the Water Rises....A Malaysian Climate Change Story


This is a MUST READ ....

It affects all of us, now & in the future!



For thousands of Malaysians, climate change has left a trail of destruction. This is their story.

Climate change is here.

From 1969 to 2009, the temperature in Peninsular Malaysia rose by 1.1 °C, Sabah 1.2 °C and Sarawak 0.6 °C. Simply put, we have been enduring hotter and hotter days.

In the Klang Valley, for example, the number of days when the temperature breaches 32°C is on the rise, according to weather station data maintained by the Meteorological Department.

In 1971, only 176 days - or about half the year - were hotter than 32°C. In 2020, 80 percent of the year surpassed that threshold.

By the end of the century, climate change could push the average temperature in Malaysia up 2°C, modelling by the National Water Research Institute of Malaysia (Nahrim) shows.

But what does that mean for you and me?




Kudos to MalaysiaKini for highlighting an issue that has serious impact on the lives of  our People...full story at link below
