Global warming and smoking

The effect of global warming is like the effect of smoking. Both of them has no immediately 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.

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…


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 favor.

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

Equalize bachelor's degree with diploma's degree

At this time many Indonesian students continue to the higher education in various universities in Australia to obtain academic degrees such as Bachelor, Master or Doctorate. My three cousin and several other relatives also continue the higher education in Australia after finished Senior High School in Indonesia.

But I was startled after knowing the news from Antara News that the policy of Directorate General of Higher Education (Department of National Education) is to equalize Bachelor degree from several universities in Australia only equal to the Diploma-3 degree (D-3) in Indonesia. This policy was determined on 01 July 2009 within the Peraturan Direktur Jendral Pendidikan Tinggi (English : Regulation of Directorate General of Higher Education) Nomor:82/DIKTI/Kep/2009 concerning the assessment guidelines to certificate of foreign graduate. This regulation was followed up with the surat edaran Direktur Akademik (circular letter from Academic Director) No: 1850.1/D2.5/2009. At point n…

What a PhD mean for you

What is Ph.D.? Yes I know it is a prestigious academic degree. Only that? Hmm... I think NO. 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, below:
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 beautiful thoughts that touched my heart.

Kartini's Day and Indonesian women

Recently on April 21 the Indonesian nation commemorate Kartini's Day. Actually Kartini's Day is similar to Mother's Day (celebrated in Indonesia on December 22) or International Women's Day. Perhaps to understand Mother's Day you need to understand a person in your life called Mother, and for the International Women's Day and Kartini's Day perhaps you need to understand the person in your life called wife or sister. If you are underestimating women then firstly you need to look at your mother. Am I wrong?

In short: That is all for women. In wider meaning: That is how these special Day to further raise the awareness of Indonesian society or even the world - especially the women themselves - about women rights, their struggle for equality, and their important role in various spheres of life. This is also an occasion for Indonesian women to review how far their struggle get acknowledgment especially from the point of view of Indonesian traditional society who…
