Hijau

I was feeding my car at a petrol station yesterday afternoon when the attendants were calling someone next to me. That someone was......Zainal Abidin.

Luckily I have a WWF newsletter sitting in my car and I got his autograph!


Hijau

Bumi yang tiada rimba
Seumpama hamba
Dia dicemar manusia
Yang jahil ketawa
Bumi yang tiada udara
Bagai tiada nyawa
Pasti hilang suatu hari
Tanpa disedari
Bumi… tanpa lautan
Akan kehausan
Pasti lambat laun hilang
Duniaku yang malang
Dewasa ini kita saling merayakan
Kejayaan yang akhirnya membinasakan
Apalah gunanya kematangan fikiran
Bila dijiwa kita masih lagi mudah dan mentah
Ku lihat hijau


Lyrics from Zainal Abidin said it all....




Looking at our world nowadays, my grief grows deeper for our future generations.
They will not be as fortunate as we are now in enjoying the beautiful world we live in.

They will wonder how sunrise, sunsets, rain, fields, rainforests, streams, rivers, seas, corals were like during earlier years.

What we have now will be a thing of the past for our poor future generations...
For them, burning acid rain…polluted choking air…polluted rivers and seas without life...

Daily, weekly, monthly, we come across endless reports on nature or climate which are never on the positive side.
Species upon species of flora and fauna vanishing for good.
Climate changing for the worse.
Europe, North America experiencing colder winters, devastating blizzards…
China experiencing terrible drought…
Australia having extreme heat waves in summers…destructing firestorms down south, floods up north…
In our own country, floods are worse than before…
Tropical countries hit by denggi epidemic…
Hurricanes and tropical storms will be worse year after year…
Surely this is not the end. More catastrophes are on their way…diseases we have never encountered before will rise…
Even economies created by ourselves are crumbling. If we can’t even take care of our own man made economies, what more to say nature.
We need to change! After what PKR and Obama have voiced out and hopefully will continue doing the promised changes, if any, it is our turn to change.


Change our mindset…for nature...for our world...for our children...

There is no second world. Where we stand on is the only one. Hence, it is our home.

This world is our home...

Yes, I agree with you that our next generation will miss out certain privileges that we are enjoying now, unless something is done to protect our environment right away!

Look, we used to run to Zoo Negara, Damansara Height, INTAN, Bangsar some 10 years ago and now... I dare you to run in these heavy traffic areas!
