We broke the planet. Now what?

We’ve grown accustomed to viewing climate change as an enemy we must urgently defeat. But is that the right metaphor for the greatest existential problem of our time? Read more.

Climate change is here. Most people I know can say first hand how this year has been rainier, hotter, more fiery than most other years in recent memory. And it’s only going to get worse.

One of the most eye-opening moments for me in this podcast was when host Shankar Vedantam shares that the Maldive president is looking into purchasing land in nearby countries so as to relocate his entire population. He’d rather go through that now than have a refugee crisis on his hands in 50 years’ time.

I also started looking into sea levels in Singapore, as we’re pretty low as well (~3m). I’ve been planning to purchase a home next year (or the year after) and realise sea level should be a key consideration. It might even be worth renting for the next 10 years to see the impact of sea levels on property prices. Or perhaps we should just buy a place in ChiangMai instead…

Seeya next Monday,
