My Say: Structural barriers in O&G sector’s path to sustainability

I would have said the prognosis is a death knell for Malaysia, but hey.

Dateline 2022-02-13, The Edge:

The once-in-a-century heavy rainfall in December and ensuing floods that hit Malaysia should make us wonder about the floods that have occurred in the last few decades. With more extreme weather swings being predicted, how much worse will the floods be in the future?

The prognosis is not good. Based on the assessment of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a 1°C temperature rise can cause an increase of 7% rainfall in Malaysia in the coming decades. The World Bank’s climate risk country profile also foresees more frequent floods in Malaysia, owing to climate change attributed to global warming. Climate change is at our doorstep.
