Malaysians urged to fart more to sink Singapore

Belief that global warming will raise sea levels has promted radical nationalist groups to call on all Malaysians to produce greenhouse gases “any way they can”. They hope this action will help “drown arrogant Singapore.” Feeding cattle with cheese, chillie squid and Nasi Lemak were other strategies designed to increase the country’s gaseous output.

Sonia Yeow from the Malaysia Youth Climate Justice Network told The Asia Beat that while she was glad her country seemed to have accepted evidence for climate change, she did not believe these groups were acting in the “right spirit”. Malaysian coastal communities are also said to be “uneasy” about the proposal.
