Mother earth will have the last laugh

harbour bridge(pic from msnbc)

This is not Malaysia. Although it is as hazy as our haze, this haze is more orange in colour,  not smoky like ours. It is dust, from top soil.

This is the Harbour Bridge of Sydney, yesterday. The whole city was enshrouded in a dust storm whcih created havoc in the city.

The cause is the severe drought in the interior of Australia. Yes, it is due to climate change again.

For those of us looking from a far, this may be a spectacular sight, but for those who are in the midst of the dust storm, it is no joke. they are literally choked with earth… I really pity those with asthma and sensitive airways. It is like suddenly you are being slowly ‘strangled’.

Whether this is due to global warming is debatable. Envirnmental changes are often subtle, but once changed, it is difficult to reverse, if not impossible.

I like to tell the stroy of the frog in a pot being heated over fire. I have written a couple of times on this. Maybe I will just qoute myself from an earlier post:

If you put a frog into a very hot, near boiling water, it will jump out immediately. It may get some scald injuries, but it will still survive and live on.

However, if you put a frog into a pot of cold water, and very very slowly heat up the pot, the frog will not jump up. It will instead swim comfortably in the water, enjoying the increasing warm water, not realising that the end is near. When it realises that the water is getting too hot, it cannot jump out anymore because half of it was already cooked. Ultimately, of course, the frog dies, not knowing why it has to be so in an environment which was so comfortable initially.

In many instances, we human are like the frog in the pot.

In global warmings, we do not care until the pot (in this case, a globe) we live in gets too hot. It will be too late when we realise the danger, but by then, it will be too late.

Many of us do not care much about preserving environment. I heard a story about a factory which has officially a mechainsm in place for dealing with the waste from the factory, but only 10% of the waste goes through the mechanism, the rest of the waste goes through an underground tunnel which leads to a river nearby.

 This was told to me by a businessman. The official waste treatment is just for show when the DOE officers come calling. Most time, the wastes are disposed off through the cheapest means, via the underground tunnel to the river nearby.

Any wonder why our rivers are so polluted? Our beaches so polluted?. In the  haste to make money, some businesses have forgotten about not to abuse the environment. For short term gain, it is putting the whole humanity at risk.

Ultimately, what goes round comes around, the mother earth will have the last laugh on us.

mt killimanjaroAfrica’s tallest mountain, Mt Killimanjaro has lost 82% of its ice cover over the last 80 years.

For those concerned about environemnt, pls also read this article I wrote in Jan 2007: An entire island has disppeared.

    Dr. Hsu,

    I agree fully with your closing statement “Ultimately, what goes round comes around, the mother earth will have the last laugh on us.”

    To me, the belief system of many people, especially from those Abrahamic religions which believe in the creator God, has more or less attributed to we witnessed in environmental changes or natural disasters like this Dust Storm and tsunami.

    It is very easy for mankind to pass the buck to the ever powerful God when these kind of things happened, thus we have phrases like the “Act of God”, or “God’s challenges to mankind”. My question is, if the God is so powerful, why can HE protects mankind and not letting natural disasters like this Dust Storm to happen? If HE is so merciful, why there are still so much sufferings in this world?

    So, finally, whose faults? God or mankind?

    To those God believers, please have an open mind to think what I commented, and I appreciate you inputs.

    I am not telling you guys not to believe in God, I would like to believe its existence also, but being so powerless to prevent such disasters, and so merciless to avoid so much sufferings make me believes otherwise.

    So, let’s believe in universal truths, peaceful co-existence with nature by being a nature lover.

    Is time running out?

    God gave us, humans …choices. A choice to do the right thing or do the opposite. If the world came to an end, it would not be God’s doing but mankind.
    If mankind had everything easy, we would never appreaciate what we have nor learn from our mistakes.
    So many turn to God only when they need help.

    “Suffering is a part of human existence
    “It is said that suffering is an accumulation of sins which has grown unabated till today”

    And it is also through sufferings, we see mankind showing compassion to their fellow mankind and that their faith and hope grows stronger.

    So, humans selected the choice to fight in His name. Good ar?

    “If the world came to an end, it would not be God’s doing but mankind.”

    Yes, I agree, it would be mankind, because there simply no God. If the world came to an end, it would be due to mankind cannot co-exist peacefully with one another, what more with nature. Further, if God exist, He would not let the world came to an end, simply because He is claimed to be powerful, merciful and compassionate.

    “Suffering is a part of human existence….”

    How I hope God give me choices of suffering and not suffering. I would chose “not suffering”. As you mentioned “God gave us, humans …choices.”
    Why these choices not inclusive of suffering and not suffering?

    “And it is also through sufferings, we see mankind showing compassion to their fellow mankind and that their faith and hope grows stronger.”

    Yes, agree. As sufferings are unavoidable, showing compassion to fellow mankind can help to reduce one’s suffering. In fact, I believe human should be compassionate to animals’ sufferings as well. Then, mankind would have co-exist together to make the world a better and peaceful place. Pollution, damage to the Earth will substantially be reduced.

    I still believe there is no creator God, DG. You still can’t convinced me. I have no qualm you have faith in God.

    If you were to look at the map of Australia, Murray river drains from Southern Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and finally South Australia.

    Due to river regulation imposed by each state, South Australia have to invest heavily on their water treatment as they are at the receiving end and also impose water restriction with the limited water allocated from their upstream states with their weirs capturing this valuable resource.

    So the drought may has been caused by both the weather and lack of water to irrigate the fields. With the change in wind diection, the other states are getting the dust storm.

    Dr Hsu. In the story about the factory. This is so typical of Malaysian businessmen. The idea is to extract maximum profit in as short a time as possible.

    This irresponsible attitude by Malaysian business is a reflection of :

    1. Malaysian Tak Apa attitude and no appreciation of our environment

    2. Greed

    3. No pride and low esteem of the country

    We do not need fanciful theories to tell us why people behave this way. Greed can be control by enforcement. High level of esteem and pride of the nation can improve responsibility of individuals and corporates.

    The current sad and sorry state of politics and corruptions in the country contribute to the feeling of dont care and I take care of my self first attitude. We are on a course of self destruction. It is just a matter of time.

    I was told even some of the big multinational companies are doing the same thing with regards to waste treatment.

    Even for drug companies, some of the drugs that are not popularly used in the west get dump in SEA and Africa…

    Iquote one incident.

    In the 90s, I had just signed up with jaring, being one of the earliest in the country to get connected to the net. One piece of news intrigued me. One drug was considered unsafe and was being recalled from European countries, and that pain killer was popularly used in Malaysia,. I had some stock of it, as the earlier reports all said that the drug was safe. After reading the news on the net, I called the regional office of the drug company in Malaysia and asked them to take back my stock and gave me a refund as it waas stated in their company website in europe.

    The sale manager in charge said she was not aware of this recall and asked me for some time to contact their main office.

    AFTER 3 DAYS SHE GOT BACK TO ME AND STILL INSISITED THAT THE DRUG WAS SAFE TO USE AND REFUSED TO take back from my clinic.

    I was so fed up that I went to the company website in Europe and got the email address, and I sent a email included the internet news report, and I mentioned that I would inform the local press if nothing was done .

    finally after another couple of days, the sale rep came calling and took back the drug.. The company then began a total recall of that particular drug from Malaysia from then onwards…But I made an enemy of the lady manager (she is heading the company now), and no sale rep from that company ever visited me again..But i told myself that so what , if such a company that practised double standard (drug unsafe in Europe can be considered safe in malaysia, what are we Malaysians? Guinea Pigs?) would not want to service me, it would not be my loss. In fact it would be better off….

    This is a true story and that was a reputable company based in Europe…

    On another recent case, when the original tamiflu tablets ran out of stock because of the H1n1 scarce, one generic company( producing copycat products) from a nearby country selling tha drug raised the price so much that it is retailing higher than the original research drug…Imagine how much is the profits..

    You are indeed a gentleman for doing what you did to the drug company. You have my utmost respect for that.

    How nice if you can play a bigger role in Malaysian politics? I suppose that will bring tremendous gains to Malaysia as a whole. I think even if you do not aim to be a MP, at least you can be a Senator so to bring excitement in Dewan Negara, which is half dead as far as I am concerned. Dewan Negara should not be used by political party in power to play patronage politics but as an institution to debate meaningful matters that will shape a government policies which place people’s welfare as the top priorities, not wealth of the unscrupulous politicians which mostly having direct or indirect interests in businesses.

    Haha, a Senator is not a politician to me. So, you can consider my suggestion.

    No one chooses suffering. That is why there are selfish and greedy people. People who wants to be rich, people who wants easy way out of doing things. They do this at the expense of other people and mother nature. People who don’t exercise or eat healthy sacrifice their health because there were too lazy or just werent bothered about their health until it’s too late. People who do not care for others eg. the disabled, the elderly parents and the poor.
    We give comfort to those who suffer and in return we hope someone will return in kind.
    God created mankind and he gave humans a choice . He would help us along the way but he cannot force mankind to do good or to listen to him. If he controlled our choices we are just “robots” with no souls. Why would GOD not allow the world to end ? He created it and if human kind cannot appreacite it, he will just let us wipe ourselves out.

    If there is NO GOD, why is there good and evil ? There should be no such thing and everyone is ree to do whatever they feel is right. Who are we to say you are doing the wrong thing. Why is there such thing as morals? Why is incest or bestiality a sin ? Is there such thing as bad corruption ? Every human beings don’t need to make choices, just do what they want to do. If planet earth dies and human kind dies, why do we care i we are doiing good or bad? All suffering ends. No one will judge us as our life is short on earth. Once everything gone, thats it. No need to worry.

    It is not an understatement for me to say that Dr. Hsu is fit to be PM of Malaysia, not just being a MP. I remember I did say that before, but response from Dr. Hsu himself was not so receptive.

    Haha, I am here to raise up again the issue of what Dr. Hsu should play, but just to emphasise he has bigger role to play, just that.

    Ultimately, I believe our Malay brothers and sisters will be receptive of having a Chinese Malaysian PM in time to come. But, this requires a paradigm shift in mindsets and it may takes a long long time for this to happen. It is just simple, what matter most is for PM to do a good job for all, skin colour should not be an issue in the first place.

    “No one chooses suffering. That is why there are selfish and greedy people.”

    I am not sure how you relate “suffering” with selfish and greed. From what I know, suffering is part and parcel of the cycle of life, while selfish and greed are part and parcel of human behaviour which lead to destruction of a life. I am all for a man to live a meaningful life, definitely not one driven by greed and selfishness.

    “We give comfort to those who suffer and in return we hope someone will return in kind.”

    Yes, I hope so, but I don’t insist that to happen. If not, that defeats the purpose of giving comfort to those who suffers. Forces of karma are there in tandem with what we are doing, that’s what my belief lies.

    “God created mankind and he gave humans a choice . He would help us along the way but he cannot force mankind to do good or to listen to him.”

    Whoever created mankind is actually not my concern. If you insist God is the one created mankind, then let’s be it, I accept it. But, I am not so sure He would help us along the way. I am sure, if we do it right, right thing will be there. Maybe we are not able to witness the “right thing” this life, but in the next life. This is how karma works. Of course, you may say, “God willing”, but ultimately, if there is no God, then how?

    No one can force us to do good, not even He or I. But, everyone can do good, if he or she is willing, but not force.

    “If there is NO GOD, why is there good and evil ?”

    Haha, may I ask you, “If there is God, why is there good and evil?” So, God or no God, does it matters? Why still many people still insist there is God, and to an extent of fighting in the name of God?

    That’s why in the first instance, I say the word “God” has very strong influence in many people’s belief system. Indeed, it is a fact for many are having the fear that if there in fact no God, simply because all the while, they rely very much on God to seek solace and comfort. Then, out of sudden, thier belief system will collapse overnight.

    “If planet earth dies and human kind dies, why do we care i(f) we are doing good or bad? All suffering ends. No one will judge us as our life is short on earth. Once everything gone, thats it. No need to worry.”

    Quite true, but that should not be the excuse of not doing good or doing right? All human should have the conscious of doing good and not doing bad. Small little good karma forces, if combine, can result in a better planet Earth, definitely not “once everything gone, that’s it. No need to worry”. Where’s your faith in God then, DG?

    DG, I don’t get you wrong either. I appreciate your input as well. God or no God, we are still living in the same planet Earth. So, let’s join hands to preserve nature, isn’t it better thing to do instead of insisting there is God or no God?

    My point is, leave God out of politics, leave religion out of politics. Even that, not everyone agree. So?

    Here it means 1/3 of the remaining pop will be killed. 1/3 of 3/4 = 1/4

    You won’t last, but you still in Gerakan, still trying your luck there?

    I am not sure whether you come out with this statement based on ‘perception’ or ‘facts’. If on ‘perception’, then this statement may be false. If based on real ‘facts’, then perhaps Malaysian politics are at 3rd level of cancer, and that Malaysia as a whole is in danger. Shouldn’t this be more urgent for you to spend your time on, instead of just in Gerakan?

    As all these whiles you are in Gerakan, I supposed you have not been in party like DAP or PKR to see whether the politicians down there are equally as bad, or worse than in Umno and BN. So, your perception, in this, maybe wrong. If so, shouldn’t it be better for you to choose another platform?

    “There are few statesmen in the moulds of Lincoln, Churchill…. or Deng” Yes, you are right, but you can be one if you are willing.

    “but these great people also needed to adopt certain political maneuvring to stay on top…” True enough, but so long if righteousness and conscience are intact, such maneuvering is justified.

    There are many huge underground tanks storing the excess gases and if these tanks explode the whole indrustrial complex ie the factories and the malay kampongs and the town will go up in flame.

    Initially they had one chimney to burn off the excess gas, now there are two chimneys and the flames are huge and you can hear the exploding sound of the flames less than a km away.

    Initially when it first built, the children of the soldiers staying in Sg Udang camps suffered from breadthing problems and other lungs infection. They were forced to relocate to a new complex some distance away.

    Whose fault..umno greedy politician.

    Dr Hsu,

    Somewhat planet related – it’s inhabitants!

    Good program and is a must watch if you have not done so.

    Hey. Dr Hsu. You are called a Gerakan politician whether you like it or not.

    Read this in Malaysian insider – an article from Straits Times.

    ATM,
    I agree that we leave GOD or religion out of politics.
    I only chose to speak up because you question “if there was GOD”.
    For GOD believers, any God believers for that matter, it’s something we have to speak up .
    I did not mean to hijack the original subject matter discussed.
    yes,
    Dr Hsu’s blog is about on socio-politics and he wrote abour mother earth dying and humans role .
    We did get comments that there is no such thing as GOD, so I replied .
    It is only right God believers stand to be heard. Don’t get me wrong, I am not preaching to convert you. I am not even saying God believers are better than non God believers.
    A lot of bad things and good thing were done in God’s name.
    If we don’t question your beliefs, would you also respectfully don’t question ours ?

    Everything mentioned in Quran is one by one happening. There are portions mentioned came true and some the earth has not come to there yet, not in our time, later.

    The earth is old.
    God have Mercy at us Humans.

    DG,

    I missed out your response until I read Atila’s.

    My purpose of touching on “God” here is to prove a point how influential the word “God” on many people. Relatively strong reaction in defending one’s God has proven my point here. Whether my point to point rebuttals are convincing enough depend very much to each individual. This is the essence of an intellectual debate. Conversion is out of the question, convincing yes.

    Nevertheless, I have no qualm on whatever you believe so long as humanity does not being hijacked by people in the name of God. More often than not, God was very much been been misused by people.

    Anyway, cheers to you by being true to yourself.

    Some people dont believe in God
    some do believe in the existence of God,

    Some dont want to include God in their
    everyday affair
    Some must include God in every second of his/her Life,

    Some people view the Earth was born naturally
    some believe God created Earth billions of years ago from the holy scriptures
    some believe scientific findings,

    To me, its all mentioned in the Quran of how God created the universe & Earth.
    Mother Earth, She is old.

    It boils down be honest with oneself &
    respecting each other’s views.
    Smile.
