Opposition to coal plant in Sabah

FOR the past few years, Sabahan activists have been battling the government’s proposed 300-megawatt coal-fired power plant on the state’s east coast where one of the most pristine marine environments in Malaysia is located. The proposed site for the power plant has been moved several times, from Silam to Sandakan and now to Lahad Datu.

The Fairly Current Show host Fahmi Fadzil speaks with environmental activist Wong Tack for some clarity about this long-running saga. They also discuss the possibilities of alternative, clean and renewable energy sources for the state. Wong Tack also responds to the Malaysian government’s proposal to operate a nuclear power plant by 2021.

Wong Tack is the president of the Sabah Environmental Protection Association, which is part of the larger Green SURF coalition.
