Malaysia is burning more coal now than it did 20 years ago


We didn’t have Netflix 20 years ago, did we? And if we don’t build more power plants under the current energy framework, then we don’t get to watch the League games, init?

Dateline 2020-09-15, The Star:

Sahabat Alam Malaysia refers to Mangai Balasegaram’s recent columns in StarLifestyle about Malaysia’s coal-fired power plants, and wish to express our wholehearted support for her call to stop building more of them (online at bit.ly/star_coal1 and bit.ly/star_coal2).

In the interest of mitigating the climate crisis, we urge the Malaysian government to halt the country’s reliance on coal as a energy source and urgently expedite efforts to reform the energy sector towards renewable energy and away from a dependence on greenhouse gas-emitting fossil fuels.
