Does huge population damage the climate?

Whole chunk of pongol forest gone to make way for the concrete jungles as the government aggressively pursuing its 10 million target.

The next forest to be gone is Tengah near Chua chu kang. An ecological disaster. Forests have been known to provide the cooling effect. Greed had no boundary. We are torturing ourselves for the sake of elites to enrich themselves.

Extreme trapped heat being produced between block of flats like a tandoori oven . The matter become worse as factories, offices and shopping centres being build to cater the ever expanding population brought by the ease in the Government’s policies. So who is the culprit? , the Government is trying to play a hypocritical game.

The hypocrisy does not end here, overseas countries their eco systems being destroyed because of the demand for huge sands here for the concrete jungles and the reclamation works. The Government are denying everything that they are the main culprit of the climate change.

The rot doesn’t stop here. The ambitious underground projects demand huge airconditions which consume huge amount of electricity. Huge amount of heat being emitted from the aircon being pushed to the surface. Thus we can see the problem can’t be solve as the Government keep embarking on developments that are detrimental to the climate. Not only that , they are destroying other countries eco systems to the extent that the countries banned the export of sand to Singapore.

Population explosion itself the greatest threat to our climate change. As usual the Government keeping a blind eye on the issue.

    Please understand that when you run out of ideas to grow the economy, the only way forward is to grow the population by importation of aliens, notwithstanding the adverse environmental and social ramifications.

    The govt has been the key culprit in damaging the environment, digging up forests, underground, graves, preserved lands, near rivers/reservoir and reclaiming land to make way for 10M. You think they care about climate change?

    Suddenly asking $100B?

    For Mdm H massive losses?

  • Rabble-rouser:

    Is this a rhetorical question or what?

    Of course, huge population affects the climate. The tall building syndrome necessary to house huge populations causes a huge carbon output;
    * Tall buildings are a heat magnet ie. trapped heat because of restricted air flow & circulation;
    * Concrete structures attract & store heat which raises the ambient temperature re: air-cond;
    * Common areas need adequate lighting at night;
    * Rooftop watertanks needs to be filled throughout by water pumps; &
    * Elevators need to function 24/7/365!

    With a huge population, you need high level of electricity baseload. In addition, demand for water from a huge population are very high! And in a tropical environment, air-conditioning is a must!

    Land destined for residential purpose (resulting in high land valued) can’t be used for land-intensive renewable energy production ie. Solar panels need a horizontal layout to capture the sun’s rays! In addition, S’pore can’t have sufficient water bodies to store rainwater using harvesting mechanism – S’pore’s land, after all, is too valuable for that.

    Huge populations (in a very small footprint like S’pore) aren’t sustainable! The drive to force in more people into a constricted S’pore eco-system is rather hilarious.

    S’pore’s economy is a intermediate functioning mechanism ie. totally reliant on free-riding vehicles like Globalisation, dependent on Free-trade agreements, Transshipment configuration, wealth parking using SG$ (not even wealth management because S’pore has a low yield eco-system).

    Truth be told, S’pore’s economy is a transient economy. Nothing last except for a short period of opportunity, then followed by discontinuities. Without a stable economy, the drive for a huge population is questionable.

    A huge population definitely and surely damages the climate.

    We are all addicted to money and growth. And much of it is fulled by headcount increase. Simply increasing volumes. And it is so politically incorrect to say this, but there are just too many people on this planet. And even more politically incorrect thing to say, is that the most under-resourced and the least able everywhere seem to be procreating the most and at the fastest pace.

    It is a complete lack of leadership that Politicians have been skirting this issue and saying almost nothing about it.

    This generation of Politicians are are real disgrace and a let down. And this includes Singapore. This, together with others, is such an obvious issue and yet leaders can dance around the room for years, pretending not to know of the big elephant in the room.

    Politicians are in the dumps these days. People deserve better than a bunch of people coasting along.

    Climate change is being used by $G government to suck up money. If $G went underwater – seriously – who is going to live here?

    This island has a few years left until the policies and politics make it unable to survive as a separate economy. It may one day very soon return to Johore – who knows?

    Nothing is for sure. $G even more so.

  • lying pap S$m thieving liars:

    pap build smaller and smaller over priced HDB rental units. yet pap expects more people to squeezed in smaller and smaller sized homes to ffff swee swee and produce chambermaids gardeners cooks for their offspring.

    ffff good try. No.

    we never cease to tell younger folks. if you make S$600k in pap Spore, you make peanuts money. if you make S$1m in pap Spore, you are mediocre.

    so if you are making peanuts money or are mediocre in pap Spore, you either STOP reproducing so as to stop propagating the same misery to the next generation or you do the right thing for the next generation by voting out pap.

    There is no other way.

    You vote pap, and still want to have wife and children, you are not only doing yourself a disfavour, you are hurting your wife and children since without S$600k per year income you are not even a monkey making peanuts money by pap standard.

    Be human. Be kind. If you vote pap, don’t marry. If you marry, don’t children. Because everyone from yourself to wife to children GUARANTEED to suffer unless you make S$1m+ aka non mediocre money.

    Which is easier? No wife no children under pap or vote out pap and have wife and as many children as you can afford under your New Government standard wage whatever that is.

  • one-curry-party rule:

    aiyoh more population = need more space (great possibility of natural green / forests slaughtered for concrete building). more population = more absolute commuting needs = more roads (concrete), more vehicles, more jam + more exhaust ?

    more population = more high buildings or underground buildings in scare space in sinkie land = higher costs to build up or down than at ground level + trap more heat resulting more air-con needed (hence chicken-n-egg dilemma) + more maintenance.

    more population = more rubbish + more propaganda materials (e.g could be paper materials + free cheap freebies) by the white idiots.

    in sinkies land, now no good open ground to play games with more fresher air ?

    anyone noticed ? the whole stretch of BODOK REASERVOIR ROAT used to be green and more open-space (used to see people playing games like cricket), now all full of buildings or more earmarked for projects ?

    our white idiots are so good in fooling the daft sinkies than it is quite shiok shiok for them to continue doing so like preaching much about climax change ? and the white idiots still say that one-curry-party rule is the best for sinkie land ???

    10 million population in S’pore would generate a large amount of waste! Where will it go? Already China, Indonesia & the Philippines are rejecting containers full of recyclable waste material. And if you incinerate them, you added to the carbon emissions!
    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jul/09/indonesia-sends-rubbish-back-to-australia-and-says-its-too-contaminated-to-recycle

    This shows the brain-dead policies of the PAP govt who is so reliant on property developments to enrich their own pockets that they don’t see the immense harm that they are causing to the nation.
