For South-east Asia, climate change is just as dangerous

For South-east Asia, climate change is just as dangerous | Mr Tony's Geography Stuff | Scoop.it
The big question facing Southeast Asia’s policymakers today is not making a choice between butter and guns, but how to face the growing threats from other various sources, including climate change.
Tony Hall's insight:

This raises a lot of questions regarding development in South East Asia. Will the governments of the ASEAN keep climate change in mind as they pursue development? I think this is especially pertinent in countries such as Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. Another issue is the endemic corruption that exists in these countries. Will the good of the people prevail over the greed of those in power?

How seven cities are inventing the future of transportation | Mr Tony's Geography Stuff | Scoop.it
How do you get to the city of the future? Seven cities have spent six months racing to answer that question. They’re vying for a $40 million start-up prize from the U.S. Department of Transportation, which asked them to juggle three big ideas: automation, climate change and urban inequality. But even without the federal cash or “Smart City” crown, city officials say big changes are coming faster than people realize.
