Climate

Climate Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years. It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors that include oceanic processes (such as oceanic circulation), variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics and volcanic eruptions, and human-induced alterations of the natural world; these latter effects are currently causing global warming, and "climate change" is often used to describe human-specific impacts.

Malaysia ranked 52 in the 2009 Climate Change Performance Index, an instrument that evaluates and compares the climate protection performances of the 57 countries that are responsible for more than 90 percent of global energy-related CO2 emissions. In terms of energy use per capita Malaysia out surpasses other ASEAN countries such as Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand. Malaysia’s consumption of natural resources rates amongst the highest in the region. On average a Malaysian uses 300 litres of water a day, double the recommendation by United Nations of 150 litres/day. In the most densely populated states, the river basins have reached their limit to maximize supply.
