Bicara hatiku

Dengan nama ALLAH yang Maha Pemurah lagi Maha Penyayang

Dalam lesu
Kau masih tersenyum
Walaupun terlihat duka tangisanmu

Merindukan warna kedamaian

Menanti bahagia beraja di situ


Kan berakhir kisah derita

Apakah... tiada penghujungnya
Manakah jawapannya

Laungkan tulus kasihmu seluruh alam
Hingga bisa menggegar bumi

Moga mereka terima utusan salam

Tanda kau masih di sini

Khabarkan kepada mereka
Masih ada cinta mewangi di sini
Dan khabarkan kepada dunia
Damai yang kau cari
Akan kau miliki


"aman saudaraku selamanya"

Save it for our children!

In the name of ALLAH the Most Gracious and the Most Merciful

Alhamdulillah, I want to express my gratitude to the almighty ALLAH for upon his permission I had opportunity to join Agriculture Congress 2009 on titled Tropical Agriculture in a Changing Climate and Energy Scenario which organized by Faculty of Agriculture, UPM at Palace Golden Horses at Seri Kembangan, Selangor. I was amazed and enthusiasm to listen about the Climate Changes Global Issues.

Dear my fellow brothers and sisters,

Can you guess and imagine what and how do Polar Bears think about global warming?

Let’s read it as follow:

Box 1 : “What do Polar Bears think about global warming?”

Box 2 : Polar bears dine on seals and fish caught off ice froes.

Box 3 : They like to play-fight to see who’s biggest boddest.

Box 4 : Zzzz…

Box 5 : In winter months, they live and hunt on the floating ice.

Box 6 : In warmer weather, they have to swim to land in search of food.

Box 7 : Lately the ice has melted sooner than expected.

Box 8 : Bushh…(splashing water).Polar bears felt down because of melting ice.

Box 9 : Polar bears are known to be excellent swimmers.

Box 10 : They swim… and swim.. in search of food.

Box 11 : Some bears swim over 60 miles in the open sea to reach land.

Box 12 : This makes them exhausted.

Box 13 : In late 2005, the bodies four drowned polar bears were found in Alaska.

Box 14 : At the end of 2006, five of the world's 14 polar bear populations are in decline.

Box 15 : Year after year the number of polar bear population is shrinking...and may

extinct sooner.

Box 16 : (that is how do Polar Bears think about global warming).

Lesson : Everybody should change lifesyle in order to combat global warming and climate change.

GLOBAL WARMING is the one severe environmental issue in recent decades (increasing average temperature of the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans) and its projected continuation into the future. Over the last century the earth has warmed approximately 1 degree Fahrenheit.

What is the main cause of GLOBAL WARMING?

Human activities -by emission of green house gases (GHGs) such as CO2 & CH4 (methane). This component of warming which leads to warming of the surface and lower atmosphere by increasing the greenhouse effect.

The greenhouse effect

An increase in global temperatures can in turn cause other changes:

  • A rising sea level
  • Changes in the amount and pattern of rainfall (due to the ice caps melt. Therefore, much more rain is anticipated in coming decades)
  • Increase the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events (e.g; floods, droughts, heat waves, hurricanes, and tornados)
  • Species extinctions (e.g; polar bears, arctic fox, Harlequin frogs, Krill shrimp (the food of Adeline penguins), Monarch butterflies etc.
  • Increases in the ranges of disease vectors


Lifestyle changes are needed to fight global warming and climate change. So how?

  • Replacing incandescent light bulb with compact fluorescent light bulbs.
  • Cleaning and replacing furnace and air conditioner filters
  • Use less electricity
  • Driving less
  • Maintaining peak tire pressure
  • Use alternative energy power sources (solar, wind, geothermal)

Dear brothers and sisters,

Whatever disaster happens to us, reminds me the verse in our holy Quran:

Whatever misfortune happens to you, is because on the things your hands have wrought, and for many (of them) He grants forgiveness.



And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Verily, I am going to place (mankind) generations after generations on earth.'' They said: "Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood, ـ while we glorify You with praises and thanks and sanctify You.'' He (Allah) said: "I know that which you do not know.''

(Al-Baqarah: 30)

In Islam, human (Homosapiens sp.) is a caliph in this world. They have to manage source (living things and non living things) wisely.

Thus, all of us should all learn from two verses in Quran that we discuss above, in order to make this world a better place for all of us and also for our children!

Last but not least I want to leave my brothers and sisters a sing a song; Heal the World which sang by Michael Jackson.

“Together we strive to green the earth!”
