Dear Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, I write to you as a deeply concerned and saddened citizen of Malaysia.

Kepada Najib Tun Razak, Perdana Menteri Malaysia, sebagai seorang warganegara Malaysia yang amat perihatin dan sedih, saya menulis surat peribadi ini.

For most of the 45 years of my life, I have been proud to be Malaysian.  Recently, I have become heartbroken to be Malaysian.

Selama 45 tahun, saya amat berbangga hidup sebagai rakyat Malaysia. Namun, sejak kebelakangan ini, hati saya terluka menjadi warga Malaysia.

I am profoundly grateful to write this with the support of both my local communities in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo and California, USA, and a larger world community.

Dengan sokongan daripada penduduk dan masyarakat tempatan saya di Sabah, Malaysia Borneo dan di California, Amerika Syarikat dan masyarakat antarabangsa, dengan rasa besar hati saya menulis surat ini.

That said, I take full ownership of and sole responsibility for the views articulated in this letter; I express them from my stand as a mother, an earth citizen and a leader.

Saya sebagai penulis surat ini bertanggungjawab atas segala apa yang ditulis dalam surat ini ingin menyampaikan perasaan mereka dari sudut pandangan saya sebagai seorang ibu, warga bumi dan pemimpin.

I founded and lead a public charity and non profit organisation both in Malaysia and in the US, to bridge between worlds and build partnerships for ecological conservation.

Saya telah menubuhkan dan mengendali satu badan kebajikan bukan kerajaan di Malaysia dan Amerika Syarikat untuk menghubung dan membina kerjasama di antara dua negara dalam kegiatan penjagaan alam sekitar.

I have been at the front lines of the founding and mobilisation of Green SURF (Sabah Unite to RePower the Future), the civil society movement opposing the construction of the 300 megawatt coal-fired power plant in Lahad Datu, Sabah, on the edge of the Coral Triangle, one of three of the world’s most bio-diverse ecosystems. You know.

Saya juga telah berada di barisan hadapan dalam penubuhkan dan pengerakkan gabungan GreenSURF (Sabah Unite to RePower the Future) yang merupakan satu pengerakan awam masyarakat bagi membantah pembinaan ke atas loji penjanaan kuasa arang batu yang terletak di pinggir Segi Tiga Batu Arang di kawasan Lahad Datu yang merupakan satu daripada tiga kawasan yang paling padat dengan kehidupan laut di dunia.

You signed the 6-nation declaration between Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, East Timor and Solomon Islands to collectively protect this 1.6 billion acres of ocean. You also know of course of your pledge at Copenhagen to reduce carbon emission intensity by up to 40 per cent by 2020.

Datuk Seri telah menandatangani perjanjian untuk menjaga dan melindungi kawasan lautan yang seluas 1.6 billion ekar dengan 6 buah negara iaitu Malaysia, Indonesia, Filipina, Paupa New Guinea, Timor Timor dan Pulau Solomon dan juga berjanji untuk mengurangkan pembuangan karbon sebanyak 40 peratus sebelum tahun 2020.

You likely also know that the plant will displace fishing communities who have been there for a long time — irreparably contaminating their livelihoods forever. And if you listened, you would also know that they do not want the “development” that your government is imposing on them.

Datuk Seri sememangnya tahu bahawa loji ini akan meracuni mata pencarian dan menyebabkan perpindahan masyarakat tempatan nelayan yang tinggal dan hidup di kawasan tersebut selama ini dan jika Datuk Seri mendengar dengan teliti, mereka sebenarnya menolak akan jenis pembangunan yang dicadangkan oleh kerajaan pimpinan Datuk Seri.

One of the priorities of Green SURF was to study clean energy alternatives to the coal-plant, and propose them to the government.

Keutamaan dalam gabungan GreenSURF adalah untuk mengkaji dan mencari jalan penyelesaian lain kepada pembinaan loji penjanakuasa batu arang dan mencadangkan ia kepada kerajaan.

We collectively invested tremendous time and resources to identify and commission the expertise of Professor Daniel Kammen at Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory of University of California, Berkeley to conduct the Clean Energy Options for Sabah report. We had no notion of the outcome of the study, and results showed that Sabah is in an exceptional position to shift towards clean energy due to the availability of natural resources.

Gabungan ini telah melaburkan banyak masa dan wang bagi mengenalpasti dan telah melantik Daniel Kammen dari Makmal Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory seorang pakar dari Universiti California, Berkeley untuk melakukan satu kertas kerja mengenai Pilihan Sumber Tenaga yang Bersih untuk Sabah. Kami tidak menentukan apakah jenis sumber penjana yang sesuai tetapi keputusan dan kesimpulan dari kertas kerja menyokong penggunaan penjanaan tenaga dari sumber yang bersih kerana sumber bekalan banyak terdapat di kawasan ini.

We are in fact in an opportune position to lead the nation and the region in clean energy — the kind of leadership the world so urgently needs now.

Negara kita sebenarnya berada di posisi yang bagus untuk menjadi peneroka pertama dalam penggunaan sumber tenaga bersih di gagasan ini di mana kepimpinan ini amat diperlukan dan dinantikan oleh masyarakat di seluruh dunia.

I wonder if you know that Sabah is the last coal power-free frontier of Borneo. FYI, the 5 core NGOs in Green SURF are amongst the largest, oldest and most recognized conservation groups in Sabah and Malaysia — collectively responsible for most of the conservation work in the nation, with partnerships that span the world.

Adakah Datuk Seri tahu bahawa Sabah adalah negeri yang terakhir bebas dari loji penjanakuasa arang batu di pulau borneo? Untuk pengetahuan Datuk Seri, gabungan GreenSURF terdiri daripada 5 badan bukan kerajaan perlindungan alam sekitar Malaysia yang telah lama bergiatan dalam aktiviti kerjasama antarabangsa dan telah mendapat pengiktirafan dari seluruh dunia.

We have tried every avenue available to communicate to you the results of our findings and to engage in discussion about the future of energy for Sabah.  After months of unsuccessful attempts to meet with you, I can only conclude that you do not want to meet with us.

Kami telah mencuba pelbagai cara yang ada untuk menyampaikan kepada Datuk Seri hasil kajian ini supaya dapat membincangan pelan sumber tenaga sabah di masa akan datang. Setelah beberapa bulan mencuba dan gagal, kami berpendapat bahawa Datuk Seri tidak berniat untuk membuat perjumpaan ini.

This confuses and disturbs me. Your words in public are about listening to the rakyat (people) and hearing their views. A sizeable portion of the rakyat of Sabah has been doing everything within their power to be heard by you. To no avail.

Kesukaran ini amat mengelirukan dan menganggu saya kerana Datuk Seri telah berucap tentang kesediaan untuk mendengar isi hati dan kehendak rakyat. Sebahagian besar masyarakat dari negeri Sabah telah melakukan segala daya dan kuasa untuk mendapat perhatian dari Datuk Seri tetapi masih mengalami kegagalan.

We have given you the benefit of the doubt that word is not getting to you, and yet we have met with those around you who promised they would convey our message to you. Many months, memos, reports, letters, faxes, emails and phone calls later, and we have not received a single response from you or any member of your administration.

Kami tidak yakin akan alasan bahawa mesej ini tidak dapat diterima oleh Datuk Seri, kerana telah berjumpa dengan setengah pihak yang berjanji untuk menyampaikan mesej ini kepada Datuk Seri. Beberapa bulan belalu, beberapa memo, kertas kerja, faksi, email dan panggilan telefon, kami tidak menerima apa apa balasan dari Datuk Seri atau kakitangan dalam pentadbiran.

We also did our best at state level government, and have huge support from within the government but ultimately the message is that this is untouchable because “ini Najib mau” (Najib wants this).

Kami juga telah berkerja keras dengan kerajaan negeri dan telah mendapat sokongan padu dari kerajaan negeri tetapi akhirnya diberitahu bahawa mereka tidak dapat berbuat apa apa kerana ia dikatakan “ini Najib mahu”.

Sir, my most consistent experience of your administration is stone walls, arrogance and insincerity. I am shocked by the behavior of the leadership of my nation.  I find it patronising, archaic, oppressive, blatantly and self-righteously elitist and top-down.

Pengalaman saya dengan pihak kerajaan telah menemui jalan buntu. Saya berpendapat, kesombongan dan ketidak tulusan dari pihak Datuk Seri adalah amat menindas.

I do not experience your administration as democratic, transparent, open, accountable or responsible. There is a deep incongruence between what you are projecting externally and what we have experienced internally.

Saya tidak dapat merasai bahawa  kerajaan Datuk Seri sebagai demokratik, telus, terbuka, dan bertanggungjawab. Terdapat perbezaan yang besar antara yang ditunjukkan oleh pihak kerajaan dengan apa yang dikatakan oleh Datuk Seri.

I can only surmise that you intentionally run your administration in this manner. Otherwise, it would mean that your leadership is incompetent and ineffective.

Saya dapat membuat kesimpulan bahawa segala ini adalah cara kepimpinan Datuk Seri untuk mentadbir negara ini. Jika tidak, ia menunjukkan bahawa kepimpinan Datuk Seri adalah tidak berfungsi dan berkesan.

I am angry, and I am not willing to accept systemic disempowerment of our people. I am writing this open letter as a last resort. Sabahans are speaking up because we are deeply troubled and scared about the fate of our ecological and cultural legacy, and what we will be able to hand down to our future generations.

Saya amat marah dan tidak dapat menerima cara kerajaan dalam usaha mengurangan kuasa rakyat secara sengaja. Surat terbuka ini adalah sebagai satu usaha terakhir saya. Rakyat Sabah telah bangkit kerana rasa terganggu dan risau akan keadaan alam sekitar dan kesinambungan budaya hidup penduduk tempatan kepada generasi yang akan datang.

Please show true leadership and listen. You and your administration have much to do to regain a modicum of respect amongst many Sabahans.

Tolong tunjukkan kepimpinan yang tulus dengan mendengar rintihan ini. Datuk Seri dan pihak kerajaan perlu mengandakan usaha untuk memulihkan rasa hormat dan sokongan dari rakyat sabah.

If 1 Malaysia is more than a PR campaign and is truly intended “to provide a free and open forum to discuss the things that matter deeply to us as a Nation”, please walk your talk.

Sekiranya 1Malaysia dikatakan bukan hanya satu propaganda kempen dan sebenarnya bertujuan untuk memberi peluang kepada rakyat Malaysia satu tempat untuk berdialog dan berbincang hal penting demi kepentingan  negara kita, diharap Datuk Seri ikhlas melaksanakannya.

Yours sincerely, for the children, Cynthia Clare Ong Gaik Suan.

Yang telus, untuk anak anak kita, Cynthia Clare Ong Gaik Suan.

300MW Coal-Fired Power Plant, Kg Sinakut, Lahad Datu

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Green SURF

KOTA KINABALU (26th July 2010): Mud flats at Dent peninsula, the area earmarked for a coal power plant, is home to corals and four different types of sea grass, making it a unique ecosystem.

Though it is muddy at the seabed level, waters at this area are clear, allowing for small reef patches to grow. As mud flats cover a large area, collectively reefs and sea grass in this ecosystem are important for fish populations and nesting.

Green SURF (Sabah Unite to Re-Power the Future) decided to raise this point for public knowledge after carrying out its own survey to verify the Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA) report for the proposed 300 megawatt power plant at Kampung Sinakut, Lahad Datu.

Types of corals and species which depend on them at a mud flat off Kampung Sinakut in Lahad Datu. Photographs were taken at sampling sites mentioned in the Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA).

In a statement, Green SURF said the DEIA did not compare corals within a mud flat to a similar ecosystem.

WWF-Malaysia Borneo Programme chief technical officer Dr Rahimatsah Amat said in reporting low coral diversity for the area, comparisons were made to coral reefs in places like Tioman instead of another mud flat.

“Comparisons are made with coral ecosystems, not to similar habitats, and therefore misleading,” he said.

WWF-Malaysia is a member of Green SURF, a coalition that includes Sabah Environment Protection Association (SEPA), Land Empowerment Animals People (LEAP), Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) and Partners of Community Organisations (Pacos).

Rahimatsah said the report’s finding that there was 16 per cent of coral coverage is considered high as it is a soft sediment seabed area, not commonly known for having reefs.

Divers and professional photographers who checked sampling sites mentioned in the report, also discovered corals that they were unable to describe and those not commonly seen at other dive locations.

This could indicate that there are species that have yet to be discovered, making it an area of high priority for conservation, but this was not highlighted by the DEIA report.

They also saw lobsters and a variety of fish at pristine waters which fall under the Coral Triangle and Sulu Sulawesi Marine Ecoregion.

Green SURF also said at another site close to the proposed plant, mangroves run into coral reefs, a rare gift of nature that could create eco-tourism spin offs for its outstanding scenery.

Comments on Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA) for the 300MW Coal-Fired Power Plant in Sinakut, Lahad Datu, Sabah.

Komen tentang Kajian Terperinci Kesan Alam Sekitar bagi Loji Penjana Pembakaran Batu Arang 300 MV di Sinakut, Lahad Datu Sabah.

Key points for public comments:
Isu kepada komen umum.

1. One of the objectives for the DEIA is to improve on the environmental design of the project. However, the public or technical people are unable to assess the environmental design as it is not outlined/described and it is therefore difficult to know the efficiency of the plant. For instance, the DEIA does not specify the type of plant parts used. To assess the plant, we need to know types of parts used for the coal plant as the type used will determine efficiency of the plant in the waste generated.

Salah satu objektif bagi DEIA adalah memperbaiki perancangan alam sekitar bagi projek tersebut. Walaubagaimanapun, orang ramai dan pakar pakar gagal mengkaji perancangan alam sekitar tersebut disebabkan ia tidak diperincikan dan dijelaskan dan oleh itu amat sukar untuk melihat keberkesanannya. DEIA tidak menjelaskan jenis peralatan yang akan digunakan. Untuk meneliti loji tersebut, perlu diketahui jenis dan peralatan yang akan digunakan di loji penjana batu arang kerana ia akan memberi gambaran akan keberkesanan penjanaan loji tesebut dan sisa yang dihasilkan.

2. The potential mitigation measures mentioned in the DEIA are shallow and general. One of the objectives of the DEIA is to facilitate informed decision making. However, the DEIA report does not allow for this as there is a lack of basic design details, poor data on the marine environment, and assumptions of sufficiency based on no data are unacceptable at this level of review and assessment.

Kaedah pengawasan dan pengawalan yang dinyatakan dalam DEIA adalah lemah dan tidak terperinci. Salah satu tujuan kajian DEIA dijalankan adalah untuk memberi maklumat kepada pembuat keputusan. Walau bagaimanapun, tida dinyatakan laporan DEIA disebabkan kekurangan dalam pelan rangka, maklumat data mengenai kehidupan laut dan tanggapan bahawa kajian telah cukup dilaksanakan..

3. Compensatory mitigation for impact on marine environment, loss of income, health impact, greenhouse gases and others are completely overlooked.

Penyelesaian pampasan kesan akan alam sekitar, kehilangan sumber pendapatan, kesan kesihatan, gas rumah hijau dan lain lain yang diabaikan.

4. Earthquake risk: It is inaccurate to say that the site is safe from earthquake tremors. The whole Dent peninsula is within the 40-100 kilometre range of earthquake tremors generated onshore and offshore. In April 2008, an earthquake at the Celebes Sea caused tremors in the Tungku area, near the proposed site. This resulted in cracks on several buildings including SMK Tungku and Hospital Tungku. A New Sunday Times article on 20th May 2007 quoted Sabah Mineral and Geoscience Department director Alexander Yan as saying Sabah has experienced 78 quakes in the last century.

Risiko Gempa Bumi: Ia adalah salah menyatakan bahawa lokasi cadangan adalah bebas dari risiko gempa bumi. Seluruh Semenanjung Dent berada dalam jarak 40-100 km dari kawan aktif gempa bumi. Pada April 2008, gempa bumi di lautan Celebes Sea menyebabkan gegaran berlaku di daerah Tungku yang berdekatan dengan lokasi penjana elektrik arang batu.

5. Sampling done for the DEIA do not cover a wide enough range of sites to give a full understanding of the site and its surroundings. In short, sampling site chosen are not good enough to represent the area. In assessing the marine area, only two days were taken for sampling and why certain sites were chosen were not indicated. A habitat map showing sand, mud/silt, seagrass, rocks, corals and areas of high benthic diversity should have been done. Comparisons are made with far away locations and coral ecosystems instead of similar habitats. This is misleading.

Pengambilan sample oleh DEIA tidak merangkumi satu kawasan yang luas yang dapat memberikan satu gambaran yang luas mengenai kawasan tersebut. Secara ringkas, sampel yang diperolehi tidak memadai. Hanya dua hari diperuntukan dalam pengumpulan sampel dan terdapat ada sampel bagi kawasan yang penting.

6. There is no mention that Darvel Bay is home to resident and migratory marine animals like turtles, whale sharks, dolphins, dugongs and others.

Tidak disentuh akan Teluk Daevel adalah kawasan manusia dan haiwan laut seperti penyu, ikan yu, lumba-lumba, dugongs dan lain.

7. Fish species used in the report as indicators are not representative of species found at the site. The species list should have been modified to cover locally common, unique or commercially important species.

Spesis ikan yang tertulis dalam laporan pada hakikat tidak wujud di kawasan lokasi. Senarai hidupan laut perlu diubahsuai supaya ia merangkumi haiwan laut yang umum, unik dan banyak.

8. There will be a large impact on larvae fish according to the study, but that there will be no impact on adult fish. It is misleading for the DEIA to state that there is no impact on adult fish as larvae wont have a chance to grow. Marine zones like seagrass, mudflats and mangroves are spawning areas for fish and crustaceans. Impact on fish larvae will effect fish populations over a wider area.

Kajian menyatakan bahawa akan ada kesan kepada larva ikan tetapi tidak menyatakan akan kesan kepada ikan yang matang. DEIA telah membuat petunjuk yang salah apabila menyatakan tidak akan ada kesan kepada ikan matang di kawasan di mana ikan larva tidak mempunyai peluang untuk hidup. Kawasan laut yang mempunyai rumpai laut, dataran lumpur dan paya bakau adalah kawasan pembiakan kepada ikan dan udang.

9. In its list of mammal species, the report stated two mammals that are not present in Sabah. The two are wild pig (Sus scrofa) and Dusky langur (Semnopithecus obscurus). In its list of bird species, the White rumped shama is not present in Sabah.

Senarai haiwan mammal dalam laporan sememangnya tidak wujud di kawasan lokasi. Dua haiwan babi liar (Sus Scrofa) dan Dusky Lngor. Senarai burung liar seperti White Rumped Shama) tidak terdapat di kawasan lokasi.

10. There is a lack of assessment and interpretation of results on phytoplankton. The report calculates Boyd’s Biodiversity index for phytoplankton and shows it to have a value approaching that of pristine waters, but this is not indicated.

Terdapat kelemahan dalam membuat penilaian dan interpretasi tentang kehidupan plankton. Laporan memberikan index pengiraan Boyd’s bagi menunjukkan kepentingannya dalam laut tetapi tidak diterangkan dengan lebih teliti.

11. The socio-economic study is doubtful. It states that the community in Kampung Sinakut are squatters, which cannot be the case for a traditional village with a village headman. The DEIA also states that “Orang Sungai” are of Indonesian descent. This clearly shows ignorance on the part of those doing the study.

Kajian sosio-ekonomi adalah amat kurang yakin. Laporan menerangkan bahawa kebanyakan penduduk Kg Sinakut adalah penduduk haram dan tidak boleh dikira sebagai penduduk tradisional. Laporan DEIA juga menjelaskan bahawa “orang sungai” berasal dari kawasan Indonesia. Ini menunjukkan kejahilan dalam membuat kajian.

12. A baseline study shows that acid rain is already present at the site with a pH of 4.66. There is a need to further study why acid rain is happening in the area. It is also wrong to compare agriculture and forested Dent peninsula with Petaling Jaya which is industrialised and urbanized.

Kajian menunjukan akan kewujudan hujan asid pada PH 4.66. Oleh itu, kajian yang lebih terperinci adalah perlu untuk mengenal pasti punca dan sebab. Adalah salah dalam membuat pembandingan industri penanaman di hutan semenanjung Dent dengan kawasan industri seperti di Petaling Jaya.

13. Climate change as a major impact is not mentioned. The scope of the DEIA should include measures to minimise/mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from the proposed project.

Perubahan cuaca sebagai satu kesan utama tidak diterangkan. Laporan DEIA sepatutnya memastikan langkah pengawalan dan penyelesaian kepada masalah gas rumah hijau dari loji tersebut.

14. Despite repeated newspaper articles that mention clean coal technology will be used, there is no mention of it in the DEIA. This is a cause of grave concern.

Laporan DEIA tidak menerangkan teknologi bersih batu arang walaupun ia telah banyak kali dinyatakan di media cetak surat khabar. Ini menimbulkan rasa bimbang.

To:
The Department of Environment, Malaysia.

Comments on the Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment for the 300 MW coal-fired power plant in Lahad Datu, Sabah.

Komen ke atas Laporan Terperinci Kesan Alam Sekitar bagi loji penjana batu arang 300 MV di Lahad Datu, Sabah.

Having read the DEIA report that was put up at some public places, I have a number of concerns on the overall project. There are glaring technical issues:-
• the existing physical environment has been wrongly represented by the consultants, thereby misleading the public;
• the full adverse impacts from the plant has not been discussed analytically,
• identification of species that do not exist in Sabah have been listed, and
• that potential mitigation measures are shallow and too general.

Setelah membaca laporan DEIA yang telah dipaparkan kepada tatapan umum, terdapat beberapa perkara yang perlu di ambil perhatian ke atas projek ini. Terdapat beberapa isu yang ketara
• terdapat perbezaan yang ketara berbanding yang tertulis di laporan dan yang sebenarnya di kawasan lapangan oleh pakar runding, oleh itu ia memberi gambaran yang palsu.
• Kesan penuh ke atas alam sekitar tidak dibincangankan secara terperinci.
• Jenis spesis haiwan yang tertulis dalam laporan sebenarnya tidak wujud di sabah, dan
• Kaedah pencegahan yang terlalu ringkas dan rambang.

This does not allow me to assess the real situation. In short, the whole study is faulty and should be dismissed.

Ini tidak memberikan gambaran kepada situasi sebenar. Secara ringkas, banyak kelemahan dalam perlu diselesaikan dalam penyelidikan ini.

I would like to single out some points which I feel are important to Sabah’s tourism industry and our potential as a seafood basket for the nation and region. The following are my comments:

Saya merasakan beberapa perkara yang perlu diambil perhatian seperti potensi industri pelancongan sabah dan potensi sumber perikanan di negara dan rantau ini.

1. There is no mention that Darvel Bay is home to resident and migratory marine
animals like turtles, whale sharks, dolphins, dugongs and others.

Terdapat haiwan laut seperti penyu, ikan yu, ikan lumba-lumba dan lain hidupan laut yang lain tidak disenaraikan sebagai hidupan di Teluk Darvel.

2. Fish species used in the report as indicators are not representative of species found at the site. The species list should have been modified to cover locally common, unique or commercially important species.

Spesis ikan yang disenaraikan dalam laporan sebagai rujukan kehidupan laut tidak wujud di kawasan yang dicadangkan. Senarai haiwan patut diubah supaya ia merangkumi kehidupan laut tempatan yang unik dan banyak.

3. There will be a large impact on larvae fish according to the study, but that there will be no impact on adult fish. It is misleading for the DEIA to state that there is no impact on adult fish as larvae wont have a chance to grow. Marine zones like seagrass, mudflats and mangroves are spawning areas for fish and crustaceans. Impact on fish larvae will effect fish populations over a wider area.

Kajian menyatakan bahawa akan ada kesan kepada larva ikan tetapi tidak menyatakan akan kesan kepada ikan yang matang. DEIA telah membuat petunjuk yang salah apabila menyatakan tidak akan ada kesan kepada ikan matang di kawasan di mana ikan larva tidak mempunyai peluang untuk hidup. Kawasan laut yang mempunyai rumpai laut, dataran lumpur dan paya bakau adalah kawasan pembiakan kepada ikan dan udang.

I am unimpressed with the way this study has been carried out, and I will continue to closely monitor the next step that the government takes on this plant.

Saya terkilan denagn cara kajian ini dilaksanakan dan akan memerhati dengan lebih dekat langkah dan pendekatan kerajaan tentang loji ini.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
