Now it is because of climate change?

So, now it is because of climate change. Last time, it was a “once in 50 years event”.

I don’t believe it is either. I believe it is something simpler: it is all that digging, and deforestation, and construction, and bad urban planning, to pack in 10m.

These make more sense.

    Next time will be because of Extraterrestrial invasion.
    Skin of politicians thicker than earth.

    They should learn from the old man how he digged trenches from kampong to modern city without a single ponding. The useless bunch they are.

  • Longkang Water:

    All the water could be sitting somewhere underground and have nowhere to run off – choked off. Too much digging and construction over the years. When there is a heavy downpour, they all just overflow into the streets. Anyway, they can be recycled into new water for household use.

  • Dig n Deforest:

    Indiscriminate diggings cause land to sink below sea-level.

    Deforestation causes water to run havoc in all directions as well as landslides.

    The nature reserves reversed.

    Climate changes the Environment or the Environment changes the Climate?

    More reservoirs must be made to channel excessive rainwater into them.

    SG needs Sengkang-Punggol (Senggol Reservoir), Pasiris-Ubin (Paru Barrage) and Changi-Tekong (Changkong Barrage), as part of the well-announced ‘East Coast Plan’?

    Yes! Climate Change, actually! Or indeed?

    Heavy rain sure flood. In the 1970s, Delta area always flood. No change in climate yet back then.

    OVERPOPULATION AND URBAN HEAT WAVE EFFECTS are major causes of sudden flash floods in densely populated cities.

    Disgraceful Yakult is farting 1% truth, 99% lies, fantasy and propaganda.

    Save plastic bags,save the world?
    What about destroying nature by over-build?
    What about changing mobile phones so regularly?
    What about making tv that last much shorter than old ones?
    What about washing machines that need to be replaced much quicker than before?
    While about race cars?

    Much more resources n energies needed to manufacture short-life electronics and electrical products that cause much more harm to the world,ya?

    Stop the hypocrisy.
    If no plastic bags,more dirty littering from rubbish chutes to garbage bins?
    Vermin and diseases spread faster???

    Lets be sincere…

  • Tremendous:

    It’s all that digging and construction absolutely. The chiefs have no idea how water flows when rains come. The village used to have a lot of soil and greenery to absorb the water. The moment the chiefs send their henchmen to remove the soil and greenery and replace them with concrete, where do they expect the water to go ? Good-for-nothing chiefs.

  • Pappy's (instinctive)Whitewash:

    Are these ministerial announcements top dollar pappy intuitions? Or just culled from popular science notions. Did Grace present the scientific evidence for her “beliefs”; will she respond to Andrew’s contrary assertions?

  • left behind:

    I remember when I was young, there is this policy of ozone layer protection and they banned certain substance. The scientific evidence are overwhelming at that time. Today the ozone layer hole is still there. Maybe it get bigger. Now the new policy is climate change about global warming, reduce carbon emission. Again the so-called scientific evidence is overwhelming. In my opinion, this is another policy of deception. The weather is going to get worse and God control the weather. The change in weather pattern is nothing but the punishment by God upon mankind for their sins, the coming of judgement day. The message is clear- “Be good or else.”.

    Don’t blame it on climate change; blame it on humans and politicians for failing to protect the environment.

  • Careful:

    Andrew says, “I don’t believe it is either.”

    Watch out. Some regular commentators will demand that you prove what you don’t believe.

    They follow PAP’s tactic. Just say anything and demand that be taken as the TRUTH. They go mad when others ask for proof.

    @ Xoxo

    HOW ABOUT LED LIGHTING too? It saves electricity by a miniscule watts consumption and a little carbon footprint but the entire lighting must be displaced within one to three years at huge financial costs to homeowners and landfill costs of environmental pollution totally ignored?

    A LOT OF CONSUMERS GOT DUPED.

    Climate Change? Don’t be silly!
    The climate ALWAYS CHANGE!

    We had floods long before the term became FASHIONALE!

    Now they have stopped mentioning man made CO2 to
    blame for causing global warming.

    The CO2 in the atmosphere is about 420 ppm as published by NOAA. Out of this, 4% is caused by
    humans.
    How can 4% out of 100% be the cause??

    Also, the Paris Agreement says ” to keep the global temperature rise above 2 degree C over that during
    pre-industrial era”. BUT DOES NOT SAY WHAT IS THAT TEMPERATURE! What is this temperature? How can the global temperature be measured at that time???

  • Tremendous:

    I have got some inspiration. I think the chief is absolutely right.
    When she said Flash floods ….. a symptom of climate change.
    What she meant was climate change to change chiefs in the village, not environmental change.

    plastic is not forever!

    Science is beginning to win in the long battle over
    misinformed anti-plastic advocacy.It has been a
    long time coming. The most recent paper on the
    subject of pelagic plastic (plastic floating in the
    oceans) is from a scientific team at the
    Massachusetts Institute of Technology
    The study is Sunlight Converts Polystyrene to
    Carbon Dioxide and Dissolved Organic Carbon
    by Collin P. Ward, Cassia J. Armstrong, Anna
    N. Walsh, Julia H. Jackson and Christopher M.
