El Nino drying up Sarawak ?

El Nino drying up Sarawak
MIRI: With the supply of fresh water dwindling to critical levels in interior Sarawak, schoolchildren have resorted to washing dishes and bathing in dirty ponds and polluted streams.
The drought is worsening in many northern and central districts

Or is it logging?

Sarawak government is now confronting haze ( logging - cheap way of clearing the land) , lack of water ( logging) and Penan villages of 300 that is starving ( logging - no more animals and edible plants )

My heart goes out to the Sarawakians but am tired that they are not helping themselves. Have been to that area and it is just a shame that they keep voting a government that sells them off cheaply.

I feel sorry for them too, but sometimes, God help those who helped themselves. Isn't it right?

That is so true. I have to figure these things out but of course have to see that they have been conditioned to behave like that.
