The effects of climate change, including higher surface temperatures, floods, droughts, severe storms and sea level rise is putting Thailand’s environment at risk. The damage to coastal development with just a few centimetres of sea level rise and continued drought challenges Thailand’s tourism.
Concerned scientists insist we shift from burning carbon energy (coal and oil) and see renewables (wind, tidal, solar) as a solution to reliable, affordable, economic, and to avoid catastrophic global warming.
An historic agreement to combat climate change and unleash actions and investment towards a low carbon, resilient and sustainable future was agreed by 195 nations in the Paris Climate Conference December 2015. The universal agreement’s main aim is to keep a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius and to drive efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
