The columnist (not journalist) stated, "The woolly-minded democracy-boosters in Sabah also need to be very careful of what they really wish for."
He also seems to be confused as what constitutes renewable energy as he states, "Sarawak - ostensibly the new corridor of renewable energy - breezes along nicely without the burden of a public debate on whether or not to have coal-fired power stations." Hello, since when is coal a renewable energy?? And I think all Malaysians know they type of democracy practiced in Sarawak...
But wait there's more... "The green campaigners need to take their fight somewhere else. In these parts, where trees still outnumber humans, the minimal extra carbon emitted from coal-burning is not a seriously damaging trade-off."
