Reference: The crunch is in mandatory limits, Bangkok Post, December 4, 2007
It is reported that an effect of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels is that droughts, floods, landslides, and rising sea levels are becoming commonplace in Indonesia (The crunch is in mandatory limits, Bangkok Post, December 4, 2007). The primary causes of natural disasters in Indonesia are earthquakes and volcanic activity neither of which has anything whatsoever to do with greenhouse gas emissions. Floods and landslides are not "becoming" commonplace in Indonesia, they have been commonplace their since time immemorial. There has been no drought in Indonesia recently and there is no evidence that the sea level is rising in indonesia. If the sea were rising it would rise everywhere not just in Indonesia.
