Najib’s plan ‘nuked’?

Prime Minister Najib’s plan to build two nuclear power plants have encountered strong opposition from the state governments of Penang and Selangor.

Both Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim, who categorically said no to this nuclear plan, are mindful of the fact that this is a ‘dangerous technology’ and the country’s abysmal maintenance culture would make it an even more risky venture. 

One only has to remember things such as “collapsing stadiums, dysfunctional dams” and leaking roofs, among other embarrasing and dangerous things. Which is why there were those concerned Malaysians who were cynical enough to suggest that for starters these nuclear plants be built in Putrajaya — if they’re purportedly safe for every Malaysian.

Malaysians also wonder why the government leaders seem not keen to seek alternative sources of energy, such as the solar energy.

These nuclear plants are expected to generate 1,000 megawatts each beginning 2021 as part of the overall long-term plan to increase energy supply.
