Bakun: Sungai Rajang cetek?

Bakun: Sungai Rajang cetek?


KAPIT 26 Okt. - Kerajaan negeri tidak berhasrat untuk menghentikan kerja-kerja menakung air di Empangan Hidroelektrik Bakun yang setakat ini telah mengakibatkan paras air Sungai Rajang terutamanya di kawasan hulu semakin cetek.
Menteri Perancangan dan Pengurusan Sumber II, Datuk Seri Awang Tengah Ali Hassan sebaliknya berkata, penakungan air tetap akan diteruskan kerana satu kajian berhubung kerja-kerja penakungan telah dilakukan sebelum permit kebenaran dikeluarkan pada 13 Oktober lalu.
Menurutnya, berdasarkan kajian itu, Sarawak dijangka akan mengalami musim monsun yang mengakibatkan hujan lebat dan bersesuaian dengan kerja-kerja menakung air.
''Namun apa yang berlaku adalah di luar jangkaan dan kita berharap agar hujan turun bagi mengelakkan keadaan bertambah buruk," katanya kepada pemberita di Rumah Rehat Song dekat sini semalam.
Dalam pada itu, Awang Tengah memberitahu, pada masa sama, sejumlah air juga akan dilepaskan dari Empangan Hidroelektrik Bakun bagi mengimbangi paras air Sungai Rajang pada 43 aras laut purata (MSL).
Kata beliau, paras terendah MSL yang dicatatkan ialah di antara Kapit dan Belaga iaitu pada 41 MSL dan hanya boleh dilalui dengan perahu.
''Walaupun bot ekspres dan bot kargo tidak dapat mudik ke Belaga namun sungai itu masih dapat dilalui oleh perahu sebagaimana yang dialami sebelum wujudnya empangan berkenaan lagi," jelasnya.
Dalam perkembangan lain, Awang Tengah berkata, laporan berhubung fenomena kayu-kayu balak memenuhi Sungai Rajang secara luar biasa pada 7 Oktober lalu akan dikeluarkan secepat mungkin.
''Kita akan menyediakan hasil kajian yang serba lengkap merangkumi jabatan berkaitan kerana berdasarkan laporan awal kejadian berkenaan disebabkan oleh banyak faktor," katanya.

SIBERIA

Siberia merupakan kawasan yang beriklim Tundra. Kawasan ini mempunyai tempoh musim sejuk yang panjang dan musim panas yang singkat. Siberia mempunyai keluasanlebih kurang 13.1 juta kilometer iaitu 77% daripada keluasan Rusia.  Manakala, populasi di Siberia pula lebih kurang 36 juta orang.


Vegetation in Siberia is mostly taiga, with a tundra belt on the northern fringe, and a temperate forest zone in the south.
The climate of Siberia varies dramatically. On the north coast, north of the Arctic Circle, there is a very short (about one-month-long) summer.
Almost all the population lives in the south, along the Trans-Siberian Railway. The climate in this southernmost part is Humid continental climate (Koppen Dfb) with cold winters but fairly warm summers lasting at least 4 months. Annual average is about 0.5°C, January averages about−15 °C (5 °F) and July about +19 °C (66.2 °F), while daytime temperatures in summer typically are above 20 °C.[26][27] With a reliable growing season, an abundance of sunshine and exceedingly fertile chernozem soils, Southern Siberia is good enough for profitable agriculture, as was proven in the early twentieth century.
The by far most common climate in Siberia is continental subarctic (Koppen Dfc or Dwc), with the annual average temperature about −5 °C (23 °F) and roughly −25 °C (−13 °F) average in January and +17 °C (62.6 °F) in July,[28] although this varies considerably, with July average about 10 °C at the taiga - tundra ecotone. The southwesterly winds of Southern Siberia bring warm air from Central Asia and the Middle East. The climate in West Siberia (Omsk, Novosibirsk) is several degrees warmer than in the East (Irkutsk, Chita). With a lowest record temperature of −71.2 °C (−96.2 °F), Oymyakon (Sakha Republic) has the distinction of being the coldest town on Earth. But summer temperatures in other regions reach 38 °C (100.4 °F). In general, Sakha is the coldest Siberian region, and the basin of the Yana River has the lowest temperatures of all, with permafrost reaching 1,493 meters (4,898 ft). Nevertheless, as far as Imperial Russian plans of settlement were concerned, cold was never viewed as an issue. In the winter, southern Siberia sits near the center of the semi-permanent Siberian High, so winds are usually light in the winter.
Precipitation in Siberia is generally low, exceeding 500 millimeters (20 in) only in Kamchatka where moist winds flow from the Sea of Okhotsk onto high mountains – producing the region's only major glaciers, though the volcanic eruptions, and low summer temperatures allow limited forests to grow. Precipitation is high also in most of Primorye in the extreme south where monsoonal influences can produce quite heavy summer rainfall. Despite the region's notorious cold winters, snowfall is generally quite light, especially in the eastern interior of the region.

BUNGA RAFFLESIA


Rafflesia is a genus of parasitic flowering plants. It contains approximately 27 species (including four incompletely characterized species as recognized by Willem Meijer in 1997), all found in southeastern Asia, on the Malay Peninsula, Borneo, Sumatra, and the Philippines.
Rafflesia was found in the Indonesian rain forest by an Indonesian guide working for Dr. Joseph Arnold in 1818, and named after Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, the leader of the expedition. It was discovered even earlier by Louis Deschamps in Java between 1791 and 1794, but his notes and illustrations, seized by the British in 1803, were not available to western science until 1861.[citation needed]
The plant has no stems, leaves or true roots. It is an endoparasite of vines in the genus Tetrastigma (Vitaceae), spreading its absorptive organ, the haustorium, inside the tissue of the vine. The only part of the plant that can be seen outside the host vine is the five-petaled flower. In some species, such as Rafflesia arnoldii, the flower may be over 100 centimetres (39 in) in diameter, and weigh up to 10 kilograms (22 lb). Even the smallest species, R. baletei, has 12 cm diameter flowers. The flowers look and smell like rotting flesh, hence its local names which translate to "corpse flower" or "meat flower" (but see below). The vile smell that the flower gives off attracts insects such as flies, which transport pollen from male to female flowers. Most species have separate male and female flowers, but a few have bisexual flowers. Little is known about seed dispersal. However, tree shrews and other forest mammals apparently eat the fruits and disperse the seeds. Rafflesia is an official state flower of Indonesia, also Sabah state in Malaysia, as well as for the Surat Thani Province, Thailand.
The name "corpse flower" applied to Rafflesia is confusing because this common name also refers to the Titan Arum (Amorphophallus titanum) of the family Araceae. Moreover, because Amorphophallus has the world's largest unbranched inflorescence, it is sometimes mistakenly credited as having the world's largest flower. Both Rafflesia and Amorphophallus are flowering plants, but they are still distantly related. Rafflesia arnoldii has the largest single flower of any flowering plant, at least when one judges this by weight. Amorphophallus titanum has the largest unbranched inflorescence, while the Talipot palm (Corypha umbraculifera) forms the largest branched inflorescence, containing thousands of flowers; this plant is monocarpic, meaning that individuals die after flowering.

MONYET PROCBISCUS


The Proboscis Monkey (Nasalis larvatus) is also known as the Monyet Belanda in Malay, the Bekantan in Indonesian or simply the Long-nosed Monkey. It is a reddish-brown arboreal Old World monkey that is endemic to the south-east Asian island of Borneo. It belongs in the monotypic genus Nasalis, although the Pig-tailed Langur has traditionally also been included in this genus - a treatment still preferred by some.[3]
While the official Indonesian name for this monkey is Bekantan, an Indonesian nickname is 'monyet belanda', meaning 'Dutch monkey' or 'Orang Belanda', the Indonesian word for 'Dutchman', as Indonesians noticed the Dutch colonisers often also had a large belly and nose
A distinctive trait of this monkey is the male's large protruding nose, from which it takes its name. The big nose is thought to be used to attract females and is a characteristic of the males, reaching up to 7 inches in length. The females also have big noses compared to other monkey species, but not as big as the males. Besides attracting mates, the nose serves as a resonating chamber, amplifying their warning calls. When the animal becomes agitated its nose swells with blood, making warning calls louder and more intense.[4]
Proboscis Monkey belong to the order of Primates, from the family Cercopithecidae and subfamily Colobinae (Bennett & Gomber, 1993). According to Bennett & Gomber (1993), in the Old World, these monkeys are divided into two groups known as cercopithecines and colobines. Proboscis Monkey are colobines. Males are much larger than females, weighing up to 24 kg (53 pounds) and reaching 72 cm (28 inches) in length, with a tail of up to 75 cm in length. Females are up to 60 cm long, weighing up to 12 kg (26 lb). This large sexual dimorphic difference is greater than in any other primate.[5]
The nose is a noticeable feature even on infants
The adult Proboscis Monkey is mainly reddish-brown, with grayish limbs (Bennett & Gombek, 1993). According to Burnie (2001), young Proboscis Monkeys have a blue face, blackish fur and a relatively normal sized nose at birth. As they grow older, fur coloration changes and the nose grows. Adult males have a large and fleshy nose which overhangs its mouth, but the female Proboscis Monkey does not have a large nose in comparison to the male.[5]
