Malaysia in COP15

Malaysia is aiming for 40% reduction of carbon emissions by 2020. If only our ex-prime minister put that in the plan for Vision 2020 back then. At least we're trying to catch up.

I hope our government not only focuses on climate change, but also all other aspects of sustainable development. More can be done to conserve resources. Just recently, I was in a conference hall where the air conditioning was set too cold. It was uncomfortable. This is a common phenomena over here, especially in public buildings. If only steps were taken at better temperature control. We could save so much money on top of emitting less carbon. These are little things which do not require much investment but can yield so much more, especially when it can be done in a large scale.

Dear readers, do let the people who run these buildings know that they're wasting resources. They're wasting the people's money.
