2009 Nov 16 - Sabah assembly: Coal-fired plant against green policy

Sabah assembly: Coal-fired plant against green policy

Kota Kinabalu, Nov 16, 2009: A bid for an emergency motion to enable the House to debate a proposed 300mW coal-fired power plant at Tungku in the east coast Lahad Datu district was rejected by Speaker Datuk Juhar Mahiruddin.

The emergency motion was tabled by Melanie Chia Chui Ket (SAPP-Luyang) who said that the coal-fired plant was not in line with the Government's emphasis on green energy.

"Developed nations are abandoning coal-fired plants. Why are we in Sabah taking something that has been abandoned," she said.

Melanie said the idea of a coal-fired plant was unpopular and it had been relocated twice, from Silam in Lahad Datu initially and then from Seguntor in Sandakan before being fixed at Tungku.

"The people of Lahad Datu and Seguntor had rejected the coal-fired plant and now the majority of Sabahans do not want it as well," she added.

At this juncture Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman stood up and asked Melanie to substantiate her claim that a majority of the people were rejecting the coal-fired plant.

"Please do not mislead the House," he added.

Datuk Suhaili Said (BN-Tungku) then stood up and told the House that as far as he knew, his constituents had no issues about the coal-fired plant being located in their area.

MOHON MERUJUK PERATURAN TETAP 23 (1)
TAJUK: MEMBATALKAN RANCANGAN MEMBINA LOJI JANAKUASA ARANG BATU DI SABAH


Saya, Melanie Chia Chui Ket, Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri Sabah Kawasan N16 Luyang, ingin mohon merujuk Peraturan Tetap 23 (1) untuk membincangkan perkara bersabit dengan "MEMBATALKAN RANCANGAN MEMBINA LOJI JANAKUASA ARANG BATU DI SABAH"
Isu ini penting kerana pembinaan loji janakuasa arang batu di Kg. Sinakut, FELDA Sahabat, dekat Lahad Datu, seperti yang diumumkan Perdana Menteri YAB Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak pada September 2009 bakal membawa impak negatif kepada alam sekitar dan biodiversiti serta ekosistem di negeri ini selain membahayakan kesihatan rakyat terutamanya mereka yang tinggal di kawasan berdekatan.

Perdana Menteri pada Oktober 2009 telah mengumumkan bahawa Kerajaan Malaysia memberi keutamaan terhadap pembangunan Tenaga Hijau.

Sebagai salah satu inisiatif perkara itu, Perdana Menteri sendiri mengetuai Majlis Teknologi Hijau Negara yang akan melaksanakan Dasar Teknologi Hijau Negara.

Perdana Menteri sebagai pelopor Teknologi Hijau diperingkat antarabangsa dan kebangsaan didapati tidak selari apabila merancang membina loji janakuasa arangbatu di Lahad Datu.

Negara-negara maju telah menggantikan loji janakuasa arang batu tetapi kenapa kita di Sabah Malaysia harus mengikut jejak yang telah ditinggalkan! Teknologi bakal digunakan itu adalah tidak konsisten dengan dasar kerajaan yang mempromosi teknologi hijau serta mesra alam.

Mengapa setelah ditolak untuk dibina di Silam, Lahad Datu oleh Ketua Menteri Dato' Seri Musa Aman pada April 2008 dan seterusnya ditolak apabila ingin dibina di Seguntor, Sandakan, tetapi diluluskan apabila dipindahkan semula di Lahad Datu di kawasan Kg. Sinakut, FELDA Sahabat.

Rakyat di Silam, Lahad Datu dan Seguntor, Sandakan telah menolak loji janakuasa arang batu itu dan kini majoriti rakyat Sabah juga turut serta menolak loji itu.

Slogan 1Malaysia: Rakyat Didahulukan, Pencapaian Diutamakan seolah-olah telah berubah kepada Rakyat Dikemudiankan, Projek Diutamakan.

Adalah menjadi harapan agar suara rakyat melalui Dewan yang mulia ini dapat dibawa keperhatian Kerajaan Persekutuan supaya
keputusan tegas untuk membatalkan projek itu dapat dibuat dengan segera.

Justeru itu, perkara ini adalah kepentingan awam, spesifik dan perlu disegerakan untuk dibincangkan dalam persidangan Dewan yang mulia ini.
Saya mohon pertimbangan Yang Berhormat Speaker.

Sekian dan terima kasih.

Coal's Assault on Human Health
Coal pollutants affect all major body organ systems and contribute to four of the five leading causes of mortality in the U.S.: heart disease, cancer, stroke, and chronic lower respiratory diseases. This conclusion emerges from our reassessment of the widely recognized health threats from coal. Each step of the coal lifecycle-mining, transportation, washing, combustion, and disposing of post combustion wastes-impacts human health. Coal combustion in particular contributes to diseases affecting large portions of the U.S. population, including asthma, lung cancer, heart disease, and stroke, compounding the major public health challenges of our time. It interferes with lung development, increases the risk of heart attacks, and compromises intellectual capacity.

Oxidative stress and inflammation are indicated as possible mechanisms in the exacerbation and development of many of the diseases under review. In addition, the report addresses another, less widely recognized health threat from coal: the contribution of coal combustion to global warming, and the current and predicted health effects of global warming...more
