◤9州30年后水底见◢ 海水淹城非夸大其词 环保战士吁改变生活习惯

Blog /

(吉隆坡8日讯/独家报导)国内9个州属城市,到了2050年会因海平面上升而被海水淹没,非营利环保组织环保战士(EcoKnights)主席雅思敏拉昔不认为有关研究是一项保守估计,也不想对此采取保守态度,呼吁民众从改变生活习惯做起,延长大自然的“生命”。 她直言,只要人类持续其造就全球暖化和气候变化的日常活动,海平面上升的课题就无法避免;除了我国城市,世界各地的城市都会受到影响,甚至在纽西兰一些岛屿完全淹没,导致土著社群被迫迁徙,成为气候难民。 “这(海平面上升)一直悄悄发生,如今随着越来越多城市处在风险中而引起更多警觉。若我们不控制全球气温、阻止气温继续上升,或最好能限制在摄氏2度以内,那整个地球都会被海水淹没。” 雅思敏拉昔说,我国和整个地球都需要共同努力,积极应对气候变化和全球暖化课题;虽然政府已制定相关政策,但这仍需利益相关者扮演他们各自的角色,才能让有关政策生效。 “全球都在努力,但仍需更强大的政治意愿、财务支持以及企业革新才能办到。像你和我这样的普通人,需要改变生活方式,从丢弃和浪费的食物,到如何使用能源与水,以及如何动员自己。” 慢慢减少灾害 她补充,若能改变每个人不符合可持续性发展的行为,在短时间内一步一脚印,那就可能得以减少更多的灾害,延长大自然的“生命”。 根据最新发布的研究,玻璃市、吉打、槟城、霹雳、森美兰、登嘉楼、彭亨、吉兰丹和砂拉越的城市在2050年,会因海平面上升而被海水淹没。   Source : http://www.chinapress.com.my/
