You know global warming is now a true global issue when Singaporeans start talking about it. Especially when that Singaporean is our Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew.
In a speech at the Fullerton Hotel, MM Lee says that he will be sad when polar bears disappear from the Arctic, and will be sadder still when the Antarctic ice cap melts because of the rising water levels. Worse, he says that he is not optimistic about the will of governments to solve the problem!
It's a mixed bag for me. On one hand it's good that political heavyweights like the MM are taking global warming seriously and are willing to do things about it. However, the MM is probably right that there's not much anyone can do to stop, much less reserve things. Sad but true.
