Inconvenience Truth

This is where i live, Penang. Also known as Pearl of Orient. Lovely...

Penang, with sea water level 0m

Wonderful place isnt it? But for how wonderful and fascinating it is, it wont last long. Look at the picture below where the sea water level increases by 10m.

Penang, sea water level +10m

That is what's going to happen in the next 10 years!!!

Okay, im just kidding. However ladies and gentlemen, this is inevitable.


Lets study the map carefully shall we? As the ice melts in both North and South poll, it will cause the sea water level to increase constantly... Or rather, exponentially. The whole Georgetown and Bayan Lepas are in serious problems. As for Seberang Prai, its worst. So there goes my AutoCity... =(

It may not be directly damaging our home and living, but when that happens, the land area shrinks, land price increases, worse when the affected or flooded area are like Penang, the industrial area are GONE!!!

Fortunately, i wont be much of a serious victim considering where im staying. BUT it doesnt last long either. Its getting hotter outside. Even when the moment im typing this, im sweating as well.

We should start acting now. Putting words into actions. Else, our world doesnt differ much from what being shown in the picture above in years to come...

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place
For you and for me...
