Talking The Walk

As opposed to walking the talk. On one hand, Najib is saying all the "right" things but the reality is quite different:
“What we can do is change our ways and by promoting cleaner technology and reducing fossil fuel emissions, start to reverse the damage that has already been done,” he said in his keynote address at the opening ceremony of expo in which Malaysia is the “country of honour”.
You can talk about fossil fuel emissions and reversing the damage. But the very fact is, while the world is taxing carbon emissions, Malaysia is still very much subsidizing it. Just a classic case of talking the walk. No walking involved.
