Singapore’s weather gets hotter each decade [News]
By Monica Kotwani, Channel NewsAsia, 12 Nov 2013.
Singapore’s average temperature rose by 0.26 degree Celsius every ten years, from 1951 to 2012.
Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean said this figure is consistent with global trends, and together with the rising sea level, is an example of how Singapore too is seeing the effects of global warming.
Mr Teo was speaking at the National Climate Change Competition awards ceremony on Tuesday morning.
The awards ceremony is organised by the National Climate Change Secretariat (NCCS) and is into its third year.
It recognises the efforts of youths who play an inspiring role in their actions to address climate change.
This year, the competition attracted some 214 video entries from students in the primary to higher institution level.
Some of the winners include Farrer Park Primary School, Raffles Girls’ School and ITE College East.
