Another Beautiful City Mankind Starts to DestroyTruly Asia, Malaysia lives up to its slogan. Truly a remarkable paradise this country was andstill rising, Malaysia has become one of the world’s favorite for travel enthusiasts.and rainforests, mountains and minarets, skycrapers and sampans; are only few to more funMalaysia can offer.If you are a city tripper or a nature lover, Malaysia is a great option for travelers. Consideredas one of the ‘Asian tiger’, Malaysia paved its way to becoming one of the travelling capitalby offering two countries for the price of one. Peninsular Malaysia, bordering Thailand at thesouthern end of the Malay peninsula, and East Malaysia, the northern half of the island ofBorneo, which pushes up against Indonesia and Brunei.
Malaysia enjoyed remarkable growth over the last few decades, with industrialization,agriculture and tourism playing leading roles in this success story. Tigers may be fierce butwhen nature calls, no one can escape her. A tropical natural bounty like Malaysia, can shekeep her treasures when the one who truly owns this treasure steel it from her? And worse,what if her people are the ones who are destroying her; could she escape it or will face herbreakdown?Despite a relatively positive environmental record, Malaysia faces problems of deforestation,pollution of inland and marine waters, soil and coastal erosion, overfishing and coral reefdestruction, along with air pollution, water pollution and the problem of waste disposal.
Problems that in fact can be avoided, problems that mankind created.Malaysia hold tropical rainforest, as well as peat swamp forests, both are now threatened byno other than human activities. Oil palm plantations, logging and mining, forests fires andtourism are the major causes of deforestations. It terrorizes animals causing massive deathsthat increase the number of endangered species, such as orangutan, which lives only on theislands of Borneo and Sumatra.Deforestation is just one of the problems Malaysia is facing. It is a cycle, a chain reaction, andin effect of it–flood!Management has been inclined to solving flood problems, little did they know that it is justthem creating their own problems. No deforestation means no flood. Just like what happenedto Lower Kinabatangan Floodplains in Sabah where flooding also intensified.
In this area,stretching along the northeastern coast of Borneo, forests have been reduced to scatteredpieces, while endangered animals such as elephants have lost their natural homes.Just like what I have mentioned earlier, it is a chain reaction, as a result of flooding, remainingforest is fragmented. And because of this, elephants are forced to move through plantationsand smallholdings to get from one patch to another. They prefer to use forest on dry ground,so during floods they are also forced into agricultural land, sometimes causing considerabledamage. And as a result, mankind suffers in the end.Pollution, another mankind’s assault to Mother Nature and another factor that causes flooding.Malaysia was once least polluted urban environments in Asia, however, with the rapidindustrial development of recent years, and an increase in urbanization and vehicle use, air andwater pollution are of growing concern.
1.Yeah I must agree with you, this is definitely a post worth reading. It is very artistically written plus the article itself tackles a very interesting issue. An eye-opener actually. it really makes me feel better when I read such articles, it’s a stress reliever for me. I just love reading more especially reading good articles.
Although I agree that this is a very well written article but the contents are highly irritating. I cannot believe that people nowadays are these bad. I am afraid of what the next generation will be if we continue being like this, what kind of role models do we portray.
Malaysia was once a beautiful country although I am not saying it isn’t beautiful anymore but its beauty slowly fades. This article shows exactly what I am talking about. Instead of doing this kind of things why not help each other and find ways to save what we were left. In a matter of time the world we once knew would disappear. We should stop destroying the world, there would be no life after earth. Let us not wait for the day that everything is extinct including our race.
The more saddening factor of Malaysia’s destruction is… its people. Malaysia’s locals are part of the blame for their own land devastation. Those problems mentioned in the article happens all around the world, people no matter the race, the language they speak and the money they have in their pockets, most of them are not disciplined, in fact they know yet they continue to do the things that can harm the earth. Eventually mother nature gets back on them through flooding etc but it seems that they are not still caring.
