SINGAPORE IS HEATING UP TWICE AS FAST AS THE REST OF THE WORLD
As a low-lying island city-state, Singapore is vulnerable to sea-level rise and supply shocks on essential resources such as food and water.
1 METRE RISE IN SEA LEVEL
Mean sea level around Singapore is projected to rise up to 1 metre by 2100. In extreme cases, sea levels could even rise by as high as 5 metres.
DENGUE AND OTHER DISEASES
8.4 billion more people could be affected by dengue and malaria by 2100 if global warming continues unabated.
1.5°C, 0.4°C LEFT TO GO…
Scientists warn that we must limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C to delay the most pressing harm from climate changes. We have already reached 1.1°C, giving us very little time left to act. We must take action now!
CO2 in the air is now at its highest level in 4 million years
We are running out of carbon credits to contain allowable emissions. Net zero emission is our only option.
THE EARTH IS BURNING ON BOTH POLES
Climate change scientists have noticed that the Arctic Ocean and Antarctica have heated up by 40ºC. 1.2 trillion tons of ice from our polar regions are melting each year. A sea level rise even by a few centimetres is estimated to result in approximately 1 million people being displaced from their habitats. At 1.5ºC, sea levels are expected to rise by up to 45 centimetres by 2100.
