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.
And apparently Jakarta was also underwater. https://t.co/oLFS791NMS— Zion Ryan Cruz (@zryanverse) January 12, 2020
The Softbank CEO, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, and Tony Blair are heading a committee to build a new capital for Indonesia because Jakarta is sinking into the ocean thanks to climate change. What could possibly go wrong? https://t.co/DOEhI7xZuJ— Aaron W. Gordon (@A_W_Gordon) January 14, 2020
Unfortunately, its not just Australia that is suffering the effects of climate change. Indonesia’s capital Jakarta and the surrounding areas have been inundated with rain, triggering landslides and floods that have killed dozens of people. #climatecrisis https://t.co/JzkmWrleTR— UrbanVolt (@UrbanVolt) January 13, 2020
