If it is safe why not build it in Australia which is a much larger land mass with only 23 million people, far bigger than Peninsula Malaysia.The plant could be sited in the remotest part of Australia away from populated areas.
Obviously, the Aussies are not telling the truth on the safety aspects of the plant.Otherwise, it would have been sited in their own country.Rare earths contain thorium, a slightly radioactive metal.
Are we so hungry for FDI that we are prepared to put the people's health at risk.
Read this most revealing article from New York Times on Malaysia dicing with the dirty work of processing rare earth.The long term effect could be catastrophic.
Obviously, Sabahans are far more environmentally conscious than West Malaysians.Money, rather than health seems to be the priority over there.
Rare earth is far more dangerous than the coal power plant which have been called off in Sabah.
Thanks to Prime Minister Najib's people first policy.
