Green-friendly or, er, just green? Helen Ang's latest posting "Exploding' in Guan Eng's face is dedicated to Malaysians, here and abroad, who had been made to believe all these years that the Lynas rare earth plant near Kuantan would breed mutants and decimate the population.
PM Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who last week unilaterally ruled that Lynas will continue to operate in Malaysia, was one of the first to defend the project way back then. In an early posting, he said he could only surmise that the protests against Lynas was "political". "I have nothing against the Lynas project. The Government should not be afraid to let the project to go ahead," he wrote in Radiation. That was in September 2011.
