LETTERS: Perhaps the time has come for schools to teach the young about the importance of life on the planet, including disposing of waste effectively.
We can participate in government initiatives and campaigns to support efforts to tackle environmental problems.
Citizens and consumers have the right to participate in the formulation of policies. It is time we stop wasteful ways.
So please save our environment. We have only one Earth, so we should keep it safe.
Our planet is experiencing global warming, acid rain, air pollution, urban sprawl, waste disposal, ozone layer depletion, water pollution and climate change.
Over the last few decades, the exploitation of the planet and environmental degradation have gone up at an alarming rate.
Thus, we have seen more flash floods and cyclones.
Environmental groups play a role in educating us on how small actions can protect this planet.
As to our energy utility efforts in response to the climate crisis, I see Tenaga Nasional Bhd’s efforts reported in its 2018 annual report, ensuring sustainability and a move to a transparent, liberalised energy supply market.
I am convinced of the environmental stewardship of TNB, which has a commitment to a low carbon economy by embracing renewable energy and energy efficiency.
That said, we need to look at other aspects, such as the level of emissions that contribute to environmental decay.
I suggest that we continue with campaigns to save the environment.
