Water World

gede-palgunadiDuring his visit to Jakarta some time ago, the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry had mentioned the climate anomalies sweeping the world in recent years. Some parts of the U.S. territory froze, European was hit by floods, Australia hit by fire and a number of other regions in the world are experiencing this anomaly. Kerry specifically mentioned the matters of Jakarta recently engulfed by floods. Without being addressed seriously, well, quickly and precisely, Jakarta denoting the capital of Indonesia will sink.

“Kerry’s statement has no impact,” said a friend of mine when I tried to thrust the statement of the U.S. Secretary of State. In other words, he added, many appeals had been delivered by many parties, from those who were competent in their field, who were highly skilled, very concerned about Jakarta and so on and so forth. “Then, what happened? Floods remain to happen. It did not change despite the Governor of Greater Jakarta has changed for some periods,” he said lightly. The key is only one: a matter of culture. “We do not have the culture to make it better. There is no spirit to provide the best services. I do not know how long it will last,” he said.

While flipping through the newspaper on his hand, my friend went on to say: “You happen to talk about John Kerry. Well, we localize this matter to Bali. How about Bali? It’s really the same. Bali will sink like Jakarta as well as several other areas in Indonesia which only pursue the economic growth rate by deliberately closing the eyes against the negative impacts and danger ahead.”

My friend’s chirp is also true. Have a look at with naked eyes. Honestly, Bali increasingly moves fast. Pause for a moment or moratorium on the construction put into discourse is only a lip service. The moratorium goes with the wind. There is no pause. A number of projects and facilities of housing, tourism, roads and other infrastructure keep on running. Unfortunately, they flock to Southern Bali such as Badung, Denpasar and Gianyar. Especially for Badung, it is only focused on the Southern Badung.

The moratorium is only fairytale. No intelligent commitment is agreed by the local officials, either by the governor or the regent. All leaders agree to have a power and region to be built maximally for the people’s interest. It’s their promise. Have a look at it and think. How long will Bali be able to survive with all of this? Let's think for a while and contemplate over and over again about Bali for today and the future. “If Bali will sink, we can surely build a water world, right?” said my friend in despair.
