Reference: World Bank says Asian cities at risk, Bangkok Post, July 19, 2008
The article says that global warming has caused a rise in the sea level and an increase in the frequency and intensity of natural disasters in Asia. These claims are baseless and false. The article mentions the recent cyclone in Burma, typhoon in the Philippines, and earthquake in China in the context of global warming. None of these events has anything to do with global warming and all of them occurred during a period of global cooling. The global warming hype is mostly misinformation and it is not benign. Bad policy derived from bad science is dangerous.
