This excerpt from the Malay Mail is revealing:
(Senior meteorologist) Mohd Hisham noted that most of the weather stations on the east coast have recorded almost double the regular amount of rainfall for December.
“It was supposed to be 500 to 600 millilitres (ml) but for this month, some stations have already recorded more than 1,000ml like in Kuantan where it hit 1,500ml,” he said, adding that the Pahang town had broken its own record for the highest level of rainfall in December.
Other towns such as Kuala Krai and Gong Kedak in Kelantan also broke records with 1,200ml and 1,000ml respectively, he said.
To me, this is the clearest sign of climate change that we have received. And yet, hardly any of our leaders are talking about climate change.
