Coal has no place in the country’s energy mix. Vulnerable countries like the Philippines should lead in curbing emissions. We must keep global warming within 1.5 degrees Celsius for a fighting chance to survive, and this requires halting all new fossil fuel development now.
As a mother, and as a woman, I am constantly afraid that the world will not be kind to her, as it had not been as good to millions of other little girls in many parts of the world. I want her to see that she has the power and responsibility to fight back when her rights are being taken away from her; to be steadfast when her beliefs are being challenged; to stand tall when she is being belittled; to prove that she can when people are telling her that she cannot; to persist, even when everything is against her.
Beyond the Paris agreement the test for all governments, including ours, is to pursue an energy policy direction that seeks to keep fossil fuels in the ground. This is the best indicator of a country’s seriousness in dealing with the climate crisis.
We laud Secretary Gina Lopez for her passion and commitment to protect the environment. We believe that in such a short span of time decisions done under her watch on issues such as mining and coal are examples of what can be done if the government would lead in advancing sustainability.
