Global warming and smoking

The effect of global warming is like the effect of smoking. Both of them has no immediate impact. The impact of smoking will slowly but sure will reduce of your quota to live. Maybe the impact of global warming / climate change will not immediately or directly affecting the present generation but I believe it will inherit a huge disaster (like time-bomb) for the next generations, that is our own descendants.

Partly of human habit is likely not concerned to the matter that has no fatal impact immediately, like discard old batteries in the gutter, the use of bombs or potassium cyanide to catch fish, as well as drunk and smoking habits.

I'm aware that this post is only a very very small contribution to raise the awareness of global warming issue.

I have inspired by Neil who already create a special sub-page on his blog with the title "Climate change is real, real, real…". Three times for "real" as you see.


  1. Hi Tikno,
    It's been a very long time.
    Good to see you updating you blog again.
    You are very right my friend, global warming and smoking is quite similar, both of the will cause damages to humans slowly but surely.

  2. hope we all could practice 3R, reduce, reuse, recycle. when have time, i often create toys with and for my kids; made of boxes, newspaper, plastic bottles, etc.

  3. because i really hate smoke. hope i also can contribute something to earth at least using blog.

  4. Thanks, Tikno. Your new page has some great stuff on it too.

  5. hope each one of us do our share as to stop this global warming. an easy way to start with is using eco bags and totally ban the plastics.

  6. Hear! Hear!

    As governments and multinationals have huge responsibility for pollution ( land, sea and air), so have we, individual citizens of the world.

    Each and every contribution to change our bad habits is worthwhile. Yours as well. Three cheers to you.

  7. Tikno, nice to see you back.

    Just wondering what you think of the second half of global warming theory: "The only way to save planet earth is to eliminate the private sector and institute a new, global communist world order."

  8. Nice to see you blogging again Tikno. And what a subject to choose. Good analogy too!

  9. H. Nizam, thank you.

    Yenni, a very good slogan. I promise you to save the "3R" in my brain.

    Meutia Halida Khairani, I'm waiting for your post.

    Neil, thank you.

    Rosel, I agree with you that an easy way to start is using eco bags. But the problem is how many people can "SAY NO" if a supermarket putting in your groceries into plastic bags. I think the use of plastic has crept in various fields. It was difficult to reject products with plastic packaging when we need the products such as food, soft-drink, bottled water, etc.
    Perhaps the little thing that we can do personally to help is not throw plastic garbage anywhere because plastic is difficult to disentangle by soil.

    Colson, thank you.

    Looney, I think this theory can change the political and social order. Moreover if its goal is just for changing the ownership. I'm not sure it could save the planet earth, moreover in environmental matter.
    Btw, it's interesting to know what is the relationship between "global communist world order" and "preventing global warming". Have any idea?

    Rummuser, thank you.

  10. very true Tikno, smoking is lethal in many cases.

  11. I agree with you Tikno. Every little thing contributes to the big picture. I still find it hard to kick this habit, but I will not quit quitting. Hopefully 1 day, I will be successful.

  12. Amrita, global warming is also a "lethal weapon" for our future.

    TT Tan, I pray for you will be successful.

  13. Saya dukung program penghijauan untuk mengurangi global warming dari diri sendiri. Misal mengurangi pemakaian plastik. Sukses, ya mas Tikno.

  14. How about Gov of Indonesia being supported about this issue?

  15. Alris, terimakasih. Ide yang bagus.

    at the government level, I noted the following points:
    1) Through Undang-Undang Nomor 17/2004 Indonesia has been ratified the Kyoto Protocol.

    2) The government has banned illegal logging.

    3) climate change developments in Indonesia.

    But I think the equally important is the awareness on individual level towards this issue.

  16. Yes indeed the effets of Global Warming are very serious matters for both us and generations to follow. We have to get rid of 75% of cars, 75% airplanes, 75%trains and trucks. We must reduce manufact.75% and clean our agriculture 75% less chemical fertalizer etc.We must stop greedy people from causing war and turn our weapons of mass destruction into ploughshares to feed our starving world. All these things must happen before the Lord comes. If not He will change for us. Praise be to Jesus!

  17. Allan and Marisela, I think, the application of environmentally friendly technology is the best solution as well as the awareness of each individual.

  18. Qodam, because I had a baby, I will try to participate for the campaign of "Earth Hour" tonight.

Mr. Money is not guilty

This is a special guest post. The grievances and notice from Mr. Money that share it in sorrow to readers. Please read carefully below :

My name is Mr. Money (sometime was called : Dough). My face is just plain, my physical is also weak, but I am able to overhaul the world order.

I'm able to change the behavior even human nature because humans idolize me. Many people change their personality, betray friends, sell their bodies, even abandon their faith, for my sake. That's not my command, note that!

I really do not understand the difference of pious and depraved people, but humans using me as a benchmark, determine rich or poor, honorable or lowly. Blame to human, not me.

I am not devil, but often people do abominations because of me. So I ask for justice who is the real devil.

I'm not the third person to make them divorced or make children and parents quarrel. I beg to the judge to re-examine this case.

It is very clear that I am not God. You must obey your religion forbid…


In this post I only quotes the things associated with the two words above. Please use your sense and read carefully to find and feel the fundamental differences from it.

According to Wikipedia: "A veto, Latin for "I FORBID" is used to denote that a certain party has the right to stop unilaterally a certain piece of legislation. In practice, the veto can be ABSOLUTE (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members can block any resolution). In the United Nations Security Council, the five permanent members (the United States, Russia, the People's Republic of China, France and the United Kingdom) have veto power in substantive matters, though NOT in procedural ones. If any of these countries votes against a proposal, it is REJECTED, even if all of the other member countries vote in FAVOUR."

According to Global Policy Forum: "The five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States) ENJOY the p…

Messages from golden wedding anniversary

The wedding anniversary was historically derived from Roman empire tradition, where husbands crown his wife with a silver wreath on their twenty-fifth anniversary, and a gold wreath on the fiftieth anniversary. In the present, generally, it called silver wedding anniversary for 25th years of marriage and the golden wedding anniversary for 50th years of marriage. Many people dream of their wedding will be lasting but many of them also fail.

For those of you who dream of it, then there is a philosophical message from a modest golden wedding anniversary, a pieces of dialog between emcee and bride, as follow :

Emcee : (jokingly) "What is the most annoying thing from your husband?"
Bride : "As many as the stars in the sky, unable to count them"
Emcee : (shocked) "Well, but your husband's kindness is also abundant, right?"
Bride : "A little, like the sun in the sky"
Emcee : (curious) "Then why you could live with him for half a century and st…

What a PhD mean for you

What is Ph.D.? Yes, I know it is an academic degree. That's it. No, I think. It's hard to describe it in words. You better focus on the illustration below:

And... the things that made me fall silent is what was said by Matt:
"If you zoom in on the boundary of human knowledge in the direction of genetics, there's something just outside humanity's reach. My wife and I chose to start funding these graduate students after we learned that our son has a rare, fatal genetic disorder. It may be too late for my son, but it's not too late for other children. Even one child suffering is one child too many. The only way to end this kind of suffering is science. And, the best way to do science is through graduate students."
What a beautifull thoughts that touched my heart.
Note: This work is originaly from The Illustrated Guide to a Ph.D. by Matt Might.

STOP the hatred war in the social networking site

Lately, I feel very worried by unscrupulous users of Facebook who already out of the spirit of Facebook motto namely "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life". Some of Facebook users who use this site only for uploading pornographic images and shared it using private setting to certain people (not shared to everyone) and the other using it for spreading the hatred feelings, like a Facebook Group calling for Obama's death.

Although a very controversial Pages on Facebook namely "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" which it created by Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris has been closed by Facebook after receiving protests from various parties including protests from the Indonesian government, the most recent controversy is the two opposing group on Facebook who mocked each other namely: "Everybody Draw Mohammed day (Indonesian version)" and the other one is "Everybody Draw Jesus day (Indonesian version)". As I observed on its la…

Diversity is destiny

Competition between pair Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (known as Ahok) - Djarot Saiful Hidayat and Anis Baswedan - Sandiaga Uno in the Jakarta gubernatorial election has ended. Although the scale of this election is only for Jakarta, this political contestation has a wide influence in Indonesia and gained international attention.

I do not want to talk at length about the first paragraph in this post because I'm sure everyone in Indonesia already knows about the political tension behind it and how its influence to the national unity. I am only interested in conveying the philosophical message to you all in relation to that matter.

Diversity is destiny. So that's destiny if in Indonesia there are Chinese, Balinese, Javanese, Sundanese, Acehnese, Irian, etc. More globally there are white, yellow, black. We can not choose to be born as what tribe or nation. We can not choose to be born in a Muslim, Christian, or Buddhist family. We can not choose to be born in rich family. It is God'…

Capital Punishment Against Bali Bombers

Last night, when I watching TV, I be attracted with the news about capital punishment against the main performers of the Bali Bombings incident. According to "TV One" (one of the Indonesian TV broadcasting), on October 24, 2008 (means today), the Indonesian attorney general will announce the execution plan for them. Faced that announcement, their family will put forward the re-consideration through their lawyer team next week.

Yes, according to the law, they were guilty and must be punished. But the capital punishment is equivalent with splitting the soul from the body. My big question is "Whether these world must have the capital punishment?" I don't know!
