Climate change and disasters

Humans destroy forests and produce more carbon dioxide. The earth is warmer. Typhoons, hurricanes, floods and wild fires become more dangerous and frequent. The US President Donald Trump does not agree.

The world is full of strange things,
     Some actions to destroy the earth are deliberate;
Occasional disasters, men do bring,
     All nations must truly cooperate.


Smart cities

Smart cities.     City folks are interested in how Malaysian cities become smart, such as Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Penang. For example, how are traffic and empty spaces managed?


Income inequality.

Income inequality is  universal. It is complex. For example, the top 10% of earners have incomes more than seven times as large as those of the bottom 10%.
     Malaysians hope that all economic data reflect the truth and that there are gradual and comprehensive efforts to deal with corruption, economic growth, productivity, wealth distribution and opportunities.

Typhoons, hurricanes

We sympathise with victims of very strong winds such as typhoons and hurricanes. There were hurricanes Irma, Matthew and Maria. Now, hurricane Michael, at 155 miles an hour, has devastated the coast of Florida. Do they have anything to do with climate change? Trump has his ideas?



Manifesto.     Tun Mahathir says, "We made the manifesto for the 14th general election, thinking we would not be the government.
     "Now we are the government and this manifesto is a big burden.
      "I am also opposed to the abolition of tolls and this is included in the manifesto."

Mental patients

The World Health Organization says that 300 million people
suffer from depression in the world and 66 million with dementia. The effects on economy may be US$16 trillion by 2030.
    Malaysia must review the mental health policy and the number of citizens having depression.


Death penalty

Abolition of death penalty.     Malaysia will have to get a bill passed for this in the Dewan Rakyat. Countries such as Australia, Canada and the UK no longer have capital punishment. What do you think?
