1m Climate Deaths a Year by 2030

This is serious.

"By 2030, climate change will indirectly cause nearly one million deaths a year and inflict U$157 billion (RM487 billion) in damage in terms of today's economy, according to estimates presented by at the United Nations talks..." This article came out in the NST in early December 2010. Many of you may have seen it already NST, TechandScience

This is yet one more article to support the fact that we Malaysians can no longer bury our heads in the sand when it comes to the environment. We cannot keep saying we must 'educate the children, because the adults are a lost cause.'

If we adults don't start taking immediate action to protect the environment, our children's quality of life may be a lost cause!

Protecting Taman Negeri Selangor from future encroachment and development, and conserving its biodiversity and ecological functions is an important local step in helping to reduce the impact of climate change.

Many of you who read this blog are already very concerned and environmentally active people. Please keep up your excellent efforts to help protect and conserve the environment. Please keep spreading the message about the Park, and keep reminding your family and friends how our every day habits impact the Park and the environment in general (and as the attached article tells, impacts ourselves and our children).

It is also important that we keep reminding our government that they need to take the environment seriously and make it a priority. This needs to be from the very top, federal level, to the state level, and down to the local level - where so much of the actions by our local councils directly impact our lives and our local environment. You can do this by writing to editorials in the newspapers, meeting up with your local Adun and MP, keeping tabs on development plans in your district.

Keep up the good work and keep up the pressure on the authorities to protect and conserve Taman Negeri Selangor, and Malaysia's amazing natural environment! Once it's gone, it's too late to act.

Banyak orang menganggap bahwa miskin dan kaya merupakan bagian dari takdir Tuhan. Takdir macam apa? Tuhan tidak akan memberikan takdir yang buruk terhadap kita, semua cobaan yang Tuhan berikan merupakan pembuktian seberapa kuat Anda bertahan di dalamnya. Tuhan tidak akan merubah nasib Anda jika Anda tidak berusaha untuk merubahnya. Dan satu hal yang perlu Anda ingat, “Jika Anda terlahir miskin itu bukan salah siapapun, namun jika Anda mati miskin itu merupakan salah Anda, saya juga tidak lupa mengucap syukur kepada ALLAH karna melalui Ritual Penarikan Dana Hibah AKI ZYEH MAULANA saya Bisa sukses.
