Gerakan anti Lynas nampaknya hilang 'steam' apabila pembohongan mereka terdedah. Lengang sekali usaha PAS di Penang yang seperti baisa tak tahu cerita mengenai isu ini. Malahan MP mereka sendiri yang pakar nuklear sendiri pun akui Lynas bukan radioaktif.
Parlimen telah menubuhkan Jawatankuasa Pilihan Khas Mengenai Projek Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP) yang mana pembangkang memboikot kerana tahu isu ini adalah non-issue. Baca di sini.
Mereka telah mengadakan dua sesi pertemuan dengan NGO-NGO di Universiti Pahang Malaysia di Gambang pada Mei 10 dan 11hb.
Pihak yang menuduh bukan-bukan tidak pun membentang bukti saintifik mereka, mahalahn hanya retorik saja.
Laporan The Star ini mengingatkan kembali kepada tingkah laku pembangkang yang tersenyap apabila cuba nak politikkan isu ini. Mula-mula boikot tak mahu anggotai PSC, kemudian cuba main wayang kritik LYNAS.

MPs all fired up over Lynas
At The Dewan Rakyat Last WeekTHE Dewan Rakyat sitting was anything but mundane last week as MPs engaged in intense debate over the Lynas rare earth plant and the Supplementary Supply Bill.
While the issues saw YBs from both sides of the Dewan at loggerheads over facts and figures, they were in unison in their criticism against certain issues.
Last week’s meetings saw the passage of the much-anticipated Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) report on the Lynas Advanced Material Plant (LAMP) and the committee gave the nod for the company to be awarded a temporary operating licence (TOL) on the grounds that it had met all the requirements.
The report put forward 31 recommendations, including for the TOL to be issued to enable the plant to process raw materials in stages while being monitored by enforcement agencies.
Barisan Nasional MPs went on the defensive when debating the report, saying the findings were all based on expert opinion and scientific findings, but the Opposition took the offensive stance, questioning if the PSC was set up only to endorse the project.
Tian Chua (PKR-Batu) hit out at the committee, claiming it had not revealed the risks that came with allowing Lynas to operate in Gebeng.
He said the project should only go ahead after data was presented to the rakyat and was whole-heartedly supported because of the investment and money it would bring.
“When the people support it, they are ready to take the risks. They should not support something without knowing the risks,” he said.
Barisan and Pakatan Rakyat MPs were busy arguing about the committee and its findings when Dr Che Rosli Che Mat (PAS - Hulu Langat) stood to speak on the matter.
The Opposition MPs fell silent when the nuclear scientist gave his view that went against the opinion of his Pakatan team.
“I would like to explain that as a nuclear scientist, I maintain that the external radiation (of the rare earth) is low. However, views on other matters such as management of residue, I leave it to other experts as it is not my area of expertise,” he said.
While Dr Che Rosli’s colleagues went quiet, Barisan MPs took a swipe at their political opponents, saying they should follow Dr Che Rosli’s example by not criticising the project for the sake of condemning it.More here
Bodoh PAS tersangkut dalam isu perkauman yang mana CIna yang dah kaya mewah masih tamak bila Melayu dapat penglibatan dalam projek ini yang mereka tidak dapat bahagian. Tapi muka tak malu mereka ini satu hari nanti akan kerja di kilang Lynas juga.
Sebenarnya Thorium yang mereka timbulkan itu tidak ada isu. Seluruh hiodup orang Melayu dan orang luar bandar mnembesar dengan Thorium. Ingat tak lampu pam?
Mentol lampu pam ada Thorium. Ada cerita orang kampung kena radioaktif?
Cina menimbulkan isu alam sekitar seolah-olah rare earth dan industeri Malaysia sama macam di China yang lepa sekali. Baca sini.
Itu Cina yang jenis degil dan tamak nak untung tak peduli orang awam hingga tak hormati undang-undang. Melayu tak macam gitu.
But why is Government now flip flop on the issue that is a non issue? Lynas nak teruskan projek di susahkan. Kasi tanah status TOL. Macam mana nak tarik Tukar fikiran ke?
