ႊWhen 2 become 1….(Senator ၂ ေယာက္ရဲ ့ ယံုႀကည္္ခ်က္)

10/13/09

Below is my post in English.  The following post is the same but in Myanmar.

A new light has been shed. Senators John Kerry and Lindsay Graham proposed a tangible framework and clear road map for the US. They seem optimistic about the US and the world’s future. But it is only what they believe. The two (the Democrats and the Republicans) need to become one if the US were to realize this dream of bipartisanship.

Why are not they in harmony?

The Democrats insist on tough standards for emission reduction.

The Republicans are concerned about the cost of environmental solutions and being independent of foreign energy resources.

What will this bill bring about?

1) Climate change isn’t a fairy tale but a real and inevitable threat to the US national security. To tackle climate change, the bill will use a market-based system ensuring flexibility and minimizing drastic impact on major emitters, and providing more overseas job opportunities.

2) Nuclear power plays a significant role in reduction of emissions and the bill will reduce cumbersome regulations hindering construction of nuclear plants and encourage investment in research and development for nuclear disposal.

3) This climate change legislation will make the US become independent of foreign oil and will become “the Saudi Arabia of clean coal.”  It will provide  financial incentive for companies for developing carbon capture and sequestration technology. It will seek onshore and offshore oil gas exploration “in an environmentally sensitive manner” protecting the rights of coastal states.

4) Giving about $800 million a day to foreign countries is obviously not a good thing. The bill will not only maximize energy efficiency and strengthen national security but also protect businesses.

5) If the bill were not to be passed now, there will be even harder regulations excluding job creations and investment incentive. The administration will force  EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to accomplish this.

Yes,  it seems daunting and the US won’t see any immediate outcome but the whole world will have countless rewards for the earth and our new generations.

The vulnerable developing world and the youth wish that the two become one and make this hoping against hope tangible.

Following is the translation of the two senator’s proposal in Myanmar.

Senator ၂ ေယာက္ရဲ ့ ယံုႀကည္္ခ်က္

မေန ့ကေတာ့ Massachusetts က  Democratic Senator, John Kerry နဲ ့ South Carolina Republican Senator Landay Graham တုိ ့ကသူတို ့ရဲ ့မဆုတ္မနစ္တဲ့ခံယူခ်က္ေတြကို တင္ၿပၿပီး Climate Change Legislation ကို ေထာက္ခံႀကဖို ့ေၿပာသြားႀကၿပန္ပါတယ္….

ဘာၿဖစ္လို ု့ုသေဘာထားကဲြလဲြေနႀကတာလဲ

Democrats ေတြက ႏိုင္ငံအတြင္း CO2 emission ေလွ်ာ့ခ်ဖို ့ကို ခက္ခဲ တဲ ့Target ေတြ သတ္မွတ္ပါတယ္။

Republican ေတြက အေမရိကန္အေနနဲ ့ ေလာင္စာဆီအတြက္ တၿခားႏိုင္ငံေတြအေပၚ မမွီခိုပဲရပ္တည္ႏိုင္ပါ့မလား ဆိုတာနဲ ့ဒီ Bill ရ ဲ ့ေနာက္ဆက္တဲြရလဒ္ေတြကို သံသယ ရိွပါတယ္။

ဒီ Bill က Nuclear Power Plant ေတြ ေဆာက္ရာမွာအခက္အခဲ ၿဖစ္ေစတဲ ့ ရွု ဳပ္ေထြးေပြလီတဲ ့သတ္မွတ္ခ်က္ေတြကို ေလွ်ာ့ခ်ေပးမွာ ၿဖစ္သလို  Safe Nuclear Waste Disposal အတြက္ သုေတသနလုပ္ငန္းေတြြမွာ ရင္းႏီွးၿမွဳပ္ႏံွေပးမွာပါ။

၃။ ဒီလို သာ ကိုယ္အားကို္ယ္ကိုးႏိုင္မယ္ဆိုရင္ အေမရိကန္ဟာ Saudi Arabia of Clean Coal မလဲြၿဖစ္လာမွာပါ။

ဒီ Bill ကႏိုင္ငံ ရဲ ့On shore, Off shore ေရန ံတူးေဖာ္ေရး လုပ္ငန္းေတြကို အားေပးမွာၿဖစ္သလုိ Safe Carbon Disposal နည္းပညာ ေတြကိုလညး္ ေၿမေတာင္ေၿမွာက္ေပးသြားမွာပါ။

၄။ တစ္ေန ့ တစ္ေန ့ကို တၿခားႏိုင္ငံေတြကိုေလာင္စာဆီအတြက္ အေမရိကန္ေဒၚလာသန္း ၈၀၀ ေလာက္ ေပးေနရတာ ေကာင္းတဲ ့အလားအလာမဟုတ္ပါဘူး။

ဒီ Bill အတိုင္း လိုက္နာမယ္ဆို ရင္ ယာယီဆိုးက်ိဳးနဲနဲပါးပါးေတာ့ရိွမွာပါ။ ဒါေပမယ္ ့ေရရွည္ ေကာင္းက်ိုဳးေတြကေတာ့ ေၿပာမဆံုးေပါင္ ေတာသံုးေတာင္ပါပဲ။

၅။ အခု Congress အေနနဲ ့ဒီ Bill ကို မေထာက္ခံဘူးဆိုရင္ Environmental Protection Agency က ဒီထက္ပိုၿပင္းထန္တဲ ့အလုပ္အကိုင္အခြင့္အလမ္းေတြနဲ ့ရင္းႏီွးၿမွဳပ္ႏံွမွဳေတြကို အားမေပးတဲ ့ ဥပေဒ ေတြကိုခ်မွတ္ေတာ့မွာပါ။

ဒါေႀကာင္ ့Democrat ေတြနဲ ့ Republican ေတြသာ စညး္စည္းလံုးလံုး တစ္စိတ္တစ္၀မ္းတည္း ေထာက္ခံလိုက္မယ္ဆိုရင္ အေမရိကန္ အေနနဲ ့ၿပန္လည္ဦးေမာ့လာၿပီး အခုလာမဲ ့ Copehagen ညီလာခံမွာလဲႏိုင္ငံတကာနဲ ့အတူ ပိုၿပီးသာယာလွပတဲ ့ေနာင္လာေနာက္သားေတြအတြက္ လံုၿခံဳေအးခ်မ္းတဲ ့ကမ္ဘာ ႀကီးဆီကိုခ်ီတက္ႏိုင္မွာပါ။
