    U.A.E ruler, SoftBank’s son to oversee building of Indonesia’s new capital to replace sinking Jakarta

    Indonesia nominated Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan to chair a panel to oversee the construction of a new capital, easing the burden on sinking and congested Jakarta.

    The Jakarta flooding offers global climate change supporters the exact eye-catching visuals they need to market the urgency of the crisis and to justify the ever expanding government regulations “needed” to solve it.

    Just one problem though: the frequently flooded Indonesian capital, home to over 10 million people, is actually sinking into the ground at one of the fastest rates in the world, not being overtaken by rising sea levels.

    Considering it was built on swamp land dominated by over a dozen different rivers, seasonal flooding shouldn't be a huge surprise. Logic doesn't stop the global warming pamphleteers from capitalizing on it, though.
