Environment Award for Indonesia

The news media have been reporting about destruction of nature in Indonesia, such as Destruction of Ocean Coral and Mangrove Forests and Deforestation.
For this reason, I am very glad when I read the news in Tempointeraktif about Indonesia receiving an Environmental Award from the United Nations
I hope that this award will strengthen the government's will to implement the Environmental Protection and Management Law.

Though taking into account deforestation, Freetown, Lapindo I have to admit the news was astonishing to me at first, thinking it over I guess it actually is both good news and well deserved.

A lot of environmental issues may still be really worrying but today the situation is better than yesterday and tomorrow the situation will be better than today.

I was also surprised when I read the news, but there's always exception.
