PIA Press Release

PGMA reorganizes PTF on Climate Change

by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

Cagayan De Oro City (11 February) -- Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has reorganized the Presidential Task Force on Climate Change (PFTCC) to help push the mind-set of Filipinos from the present traditional economic paradigms to those of environment conservation, protection and restoration (CPR).

This is the subject of Executive Order No. 774, which the President signed last Dec. 26, 2008 noting that climate change is already impacting adversely on the world.

Climate change will have catastrophic effects if immediate and sufficient action to curb industrial emissions and forest loss is not taken.

While our country's remissions remain much lower in per capita terms than those of industrialized nations, our recent growth and development have been accompanied by a rise in damaging emissions from fossil fuels, she said.

The President, who chairs the PTFCC, has directed all sectors under her office to cooperate with one another toward the fulfillment of the vision and goals of sustainable development.

All Cabinet Secretaries are members of the PTFCC and their offices shall immediately practice proper solid waste management, the most basic form of environmental responsibility.

Every Friday of the week, the President or the Presidential Adviser on Climate Change (PACC) shall personally visit government offices to help in the implementation of the aforesaid discipline.

The weekly visits shall continue until it shall be proclaimed that the mindsets of all Filipinos have been converted into attitudes and practices by the government offices of CPR.

Along this line, Pres. Arroyo is slated to visit Dapitan City on February 13 and Ozamiz City, region 10, next week, for this purpose. (PIA-10) [top]
