Climate change is causing sea levels to rise at an alarming rate, and nowhere is more at risk than archipelagic Southeast Asia. Climate scientist Professor Benjamin Horton of the Earth Observatory of Singapore tells the Eco-Business Podcast about the risks of rising waters and what can be done to address the problem.
With rising risks to pricing, sector profitability and coal asset values, Indonesian policymakers should let market forces run their course and allow weak coal miners to go bust, states a new report.
