Nature 101: Clueless Kelantan PAS & Humourless Water Resource Management

Water Treatment Nature Kelantan

The State of Kelantan seems to be having a huge problem converting raw river water into clean drinking water to end consumers that meet international standards.

This is why it is very important to plan & manage these natural resources well.

Environment 101: Understanding Malaysia’s 2016 Positive Greenhouse Gas Emission Edge

Greenhouse Gas Deforestation Forest Malaysia

Global Forest Watch reported that from 2002 to 2020, Malaysia had lost about 2.70Mha (around 27,000 square kilometres) of humid primary forest which in turn impacts the greenhouse gases emission.

This amounts to 34% of the total tree cover loss in the same 20 years. Interestingly this also amounted to a loss of 8.39Mha (around 84,000 square kilometres) of tree cover, equivalent to a 29% decrease in tree cover since 2000 and 4.82Gt of CO₂e emissions.
