Dateline 2021-09-09, The Sun Daily:
The mercury is rising but it is not fever. Over the past half a century, the surface temperature has risen by 0.13°C in Sarawak, 0.16°C in Sabah and 0.25°C in Peninsular Malaysia every decade.
While this may seem negligible to the layman, climate experts are already sounding the alarm.
Just a 1.5°C increase in temperature will destroy 70% to 80% of the world’s coral reefs, according to Ecotourism and Conservation Society Malaysia president and chief executive officer Andrew J. Sebastian.
Malaysia is already close to that.
