National Day Rally 2019: Economic Performance & Tackling Climate Change
In his National Day Rally 2019 speech, PM Lee described climate change as “a matter of life and death”. Rising sea levels is the main environmental problem facing low-lying Singapore. PM Lee noted that current projections are that sea levels will rise by up to one metre by the end of the century, but scientists' estimates have been going up.
