Global warming is not a myth. Let’s just get that out of the way before we proceed further. It’s happening, and the effects that it leaves in its wake are tangible all around us. Which is why this post from the Centre for Governance and Political Studies may raise some alarming concerns.

According to the Tweet, a number of major cities in some coastal states in Malaysia may be submerged completely under the ocean as a result of rising sea levels by 2050.

Cities that will be affected by rising sea levels include those from Perlis, Kedah, Penang, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Terengganu, Pahang, Kelantan, and Sarawak. The data was apparently obtained from a model chart by CoastalDEM (Coastal Digital Evaluation Models).

The Tweet also includes a map showing some of the affected regions, which are marked in red, indicating that by 2050, these areas will be submerged under the ocean.

What’s truly worrying is that islands that are surrounding the Peninsula will likely disappear completely under the water according to what we can see in the map, such as Pulau Tengah, Pulau Klang, Pulau Che Mat Zin and Pulau Pintu Gedong.

The Tweet then goes on to show further areas of Malaysia which are predicted to be submerged under the ocean by 2050, which will inevitably change much of the landscape that we know as Malaysia. Alor Setar will apparently turn into an island, and the entire area between Parit Buntar to Taiping will be submerged entirely.

The North-South Expressway will also be submerged under the ocean, in addition to Kuala Selangor, Teluk Intan and Bagan Datoh. KLIA will wind up turning into an island.

Worse still, Muar and Pekan in Johor will also be completely submerged in the ocean, and Kuala Terengganu and Kuching will be turned into a small collection of islands!

Given that alarming fact, there’s no denying that global warming poses a critical issue that will affect all our lives in the coming years. In fact, statistics even show that tropical cities will experience extreme weather and drought by 2050 as well, due to global warming.
