Climate change experts reiterate concerns over increasing surface temperatures in Malaysia

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.
