Some might have been noticing that I started to question on Lynas issue (in which it has been long outstanding and caused an uproar nationwide few weeks ago). All this started when YB Fuziah and co started a campaign against the Lynas Corporation Limited.
I am pretty sure very much technical presentation, arguments have been brought forward by the pro and against Lynas Corporation. And as usual, we have a huge number of radioactive and hazardous specialist and experts, coming out from nowhere. I am not going to be an expert in explaining what is non-radioactive, what is the level that is considered dangerous or hazardous or even trying to prove that what Lynas do can cause cancer or not. One thing for sure, I am certain that Lynas Corporation is not building a nuclear plant, as if they are, all eyes in South East Asian region will pay attention to.
However, I am amazed that, currently and specifically in Gebeng, Kuantan, Pahang, there are a lot of chemical and manufacturing plants. And I am certain, each of the plants, if combined wastage that not handled properly can be hazardous to local community. My basic understanding – each material and wastage can have radioactive, non-radioactive and hazardous materials and chemicals. Even our daily sugar take which cause hazard to our health if taken more than we should.
Therefore, I would like to know from those anti-Lynas, care to explain why Lynas being blasted, but not other chemical and manufacturing plants in Gebeng, Kuantan? Why are not other corporations such as Grace, BASF or Solutia being blasted too? I am pretty sure they have dangerous and hazardous materials and chemicals substance in their daily operation. Why just Lynas being blasted?
To-date, I am being understood that all parties involved have never sit in one room and have a forum to conclude this once and for all. So far, pro Lynas Corporation have been answering allegations one by one, and I can see every time answered the anti Lynas will come up with new allegations. Considering the experts and professionals both have and claimed, it amazes me that neither side are not being able to sit together and conclude this issue.
In my hand, I already obtained a copy of an exit plan from a professor in Nuclear Science Programme if Lynas Corporation plant to be shut down in the event Lynas does not comply with such regulations.
So, my dear readers, if you can help YB Fuziah to answer my questions, please do so. I may ask, but not to condemn. Feel free to express your thoughts.
Question on the street: For me, Lynas is more radioactive in political, rather than the actual radioactively dangerous. What say you?
