No, Minister!

According to Mr.Peter Chin, the Minister of Green Technology amongst others, we should wait for the nuclear agency, Malaysia Nuclear Power Corporation, to explain the impact of explosions and radioactive leakage at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power plant in Japan.

He also advised the people not to speculate.                             

That was 2 days ago.

We are still waiting.

Are we allowed to speculate now, sir?

Actually we don't have to speculate. Because we can go to the internet and get all the information we need. While Mr.Peter Chin and his nuclear agency sit around twiddling their thumbs.

How we hate it when the authorities roll out that pompous phrase, 'Do Not Speculate'.

Do they think it is still 1960?

And why, we must ask, is Mr.Peter Chin as The Minister For Green Technology, not opposing the plan to build nuclear power plants? It is hardly green technology, is it? In fact, it is the very opposite of green technology.

Nor, we note, have we seen any green technology in Malaysia so far.

Unless Mr.Chin counts trees and bushes as green technology.

In which case, to avoid any confusion, he really should change his title to The Minister of Greens Technology.
