You know what's funny?
Videonya di garap sama media luar negri yang majority audience nya untuk mereka yang tinggal di luar Indonesia. Padahal yang sebenernya butuh disadarin adalah orang orang di Indo.

Rarely Indonesian media take environment issues seriously. For example this one.

Don’t make fun of this in a comment section . This is a serious problem to our fellow country. Everything doesn't need to be a joke on the internet . Philippines 🇵🇭 will pray for your country.

It is actually very eye opening for me as I live in Jakarta and this place might only be as far as 5 to 6 miles from my neighborhood, the more horrifying is the fact that not many of us are aggressively informed about the problem.
We know Jakarta is sitting below the sea level and that it is sinking a few centimetre every year, but nobody really brings the awareness and proofs that not only it's already happening, it happens fast.
Our media is obsessed with politics, religions and how to combine them, when there's a literal place not far from our houses where a man can fish on the street. #smh

The Indonesia govt hv alrdy scheduled to move the parliament and city to KK. Is a wise move and they can focus how to: 1) relocate the residents, or, 2) to build dyke to control the sea water at the coastal line. It seems that the seabed has been badly eroded in the clip. The only solution is to relocate first until the govt decides how to save Jakarta. Don't wait., just run... It may takes at least 10 to 15 yrs to settle Jakarta if money is not a problem.

Don't worry Jakarta, our Bangkok will sink with you.
Welcome to the sinking cities club, Manilla and Ho Chi Minh. Let us sink together.
2er edit:
Please also welcome Venice, Italy and Miami, USA as our non-ASEAN associate members. Do tell your relatives and friends to start saving for higher lands.
