How Singapore Uses Science to Stay Cool



Heat waves kill more people than any other extreme weather event: more than tornados, hurricanes, and even floods. That’s why scientists are coming up with novel, new designs to help keep temperatures down in Singapore.

  1. Actually not only the gardens the buildings mentioned above, but also the public waste, I still remember during circuit breaker in 2020, government very much concerned about the maintain the garbage transportation. With the worst crisis, the city/country management is huge different. (Recently on n on saw news from all over cities/places lying garbages around).

  2. i think the hard to swallow pill is that regardless of how much we optimize urban areas, they will always be an ecological strain on the environment. the most efficient way to address the climate change issues is to de-urbanize. but that will never happen, because how to we convince billions of people to move away from the cities and reorganize their lives

  3. Deceptive!!! Who benefits (and has excess to) from such green spaces? Only the affluent or upper-middle income group can afford and enjoy expensive green infrastructures. Whereas common labourers who have to work under the sun or in non air-conditioned sites fall sick due to heatstroke.

  4. I'm really curious what the politics and financial situation of singapore is like because it's so beautiful and innovative compared to a rich city like NYC that has a crumbling infrastructure.

  5. My friend once went to Singapore for vacation and after he came back he told me about his vacation, he said Singapore is so clean and the sun is not hot at all like is not that hot compare our country even in the afternoon the sun is not hot at all, at that time I was like really?? But now after watched this video I think it makes sense now

  6. a country that really has it together, props to them! looking into immigrating to one of the many asian countries with whom i am so in love- with its land, culture, people. beautiful, and the collectivist mindset as a society; it's beautiful seeing people actually care about each other and the nature from which we come

  7. LOL, SINGAPORE BURNS DOLLARS TO KEEP IT COOL. MEANING THEY CAN CREATE ARTIFICIAL RAIN AND CLOUD MAY BE SUN TOMORROW( WHO KNOWS WITH ALL THE BILLIONAIRES LIVING THERE)
    . OTHER LOW-BUDGET FOLKS CANT EVEN DREAM OF. THEY HAVE NO SPACE, OK? IT IS A TIGHT COUNTRY COMPLETELY BEREFT OF GLAMOUR! THAT IS WHY THAILAND TO THE RESCUE!
