Recent flooding in Thailand including Bangkok is clearly a manifestation of rising temperature and sea level. Bangkok is among the top 10 cities of the world facing the biggest potential impact of coastal flooding over next 50 years. The other top 9 cities facing the threat of extinction due to rising sea level are: London, Miami, New York, Maldives, New Orleans, Mumbai, Cairo, Amsterdam and Tokyo
Climate change is making its impact felt. I understand, pumping ground water also raises sea levels.
