It looks very scary with prices of essential commodities going up and our salaries seem to have stagnated over the years. With the recent hike of petrol price in Malaysia by 41%, I guess everything has gone up or gone less if there is no hike in cost. Comparatively our petrol price is still lower than the other countries in the region but that is not a consolation. Because at the end of the day, our savings have gone smaller and I still can’t figure out why is the cost of oil going up? Is it that the supply can’t meet the demands of China and India or is it something that we don’t know.
Why haven’t we found an alternative source of fuel, we have discovered everything that is possible under the sun. Are we waiting for the depletion of oil from the Arab nations and then come out with the discoveries. To me something doesn’t seem right here.
With the ever increasing population, do you think that the demand for petroleum would decrease? Look at the number of cars that are hitting the roads every day. Why can’t we have an efficient public transport system so that the public would not depend on cars?
Look at the weather across the globe and you would know where we are heading. All this is brought about by our destruction of the forest and indiscriminate use of non-biodegradable plastics. Is this what we call development?
Look at the killings that is going on across the globe and we are waging wars in the name of democracy and religion. The list goes on and on and on. There is no respite to the happenings across the globe.
