We all know that Malaysia is blessed with its strategic location in the region with the west of Peninsular Malaysia borders the Straits of Malacca, and the east of Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah & Sarawak border the South China Sea.
Malaysia is generally free from severe natural disasters such as earthquake, volcanic eruption and typhoon. Indeed, most Malaysian lived their entire life in Malaysia, with little alertness or disaster planning on these natural disasters.
However, the recent extreme weather in the country has also posed another questions:
Are we free and safe now?
Is global warming real?
Is climate change real?
And if climate change is happening now?
According to Floodlist, there is more flooding has affected parts of Peninsular Malaysia, prompting over 8,000 people to evacuate their homes.
For example, the recent flash flood is Kedah, or East Malaysia – Sabah & Sarawak!

In this book How to Avoid a Climate Disaster, he explains why we need to work toward net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases, as well as the details of what we need to do to achieve this profoundly important goal.
Bill Gates gives us a clear-eyed description of the challenges we face. Drawing on his understanding of innovation and what it takes to get new ideas into the market, he describes the areas in which technology is already helping to reduce emissions, where and how the current technology can be made to function more effectively, where breakthrough technologies are needed, and who is working on these essential innovations.
At last, Bill Gates lays out a concrete, practical plan for achieving the goal of zero emissions-suggesting not only policies that governments should adopt, but what we as individuals can do to keep our government, our employers, and ourselves accountable in this crucial enterprise.
Bill Gates has makes it clear that achieving zero emissions will not be simple or easy to do, but if we follow the plan he sets out here, it is a goal firmly within our reach.
