SCORE - Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy

You may have heard thousands of time about the famous MSC (Multimedia Super Corridor) but have you have ever heard of SCORE - Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy ??

When I first heard about SCORE, I imagined clean energy .. I imagined some kind of research being done around the areas of clean and sustainable/renewable energy such as heat/light from the sun or wind power or hidro/wave power on the sea etc, so I told myself to do some research to understand this effort more ....

BUT to my dismay this is not the case ... actually it is a very misleading term being used the relevant parties .. really misleading and disappointing

It says it has a very large deposit (1.46 billion tonnes) of coal ? I guess the state or the players intend to fully extract and burn it to produce cheap electricity??? so much for my imagination on clean energy !!

Looking at their strategies and priority industries, quite soon Sarawak will also be choked with one of the greatest pollutions in this region and environmental disaster

Its funny .. the website says one of the benefits are increase in quality of life ? How can that be? I guess , whoever it may be, only considers income level as the yardstick for quality of life !!!
