DENR-IX to reorganize regional task force on climate change

ZAMBOANGA CITY (MindaNews/30 May) – The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is set to reorganize Regional Task Force on Climate Change.

Arleigh Adorable, DENR Regional Executive Director, cited the need to reorganize the task force as he noted that some of its members from the different agencies have already retired from government service.

As the regional head of DENR, Adorable chairs the task force whose members come from different government agencies as well as civic and non-government organizations.

The official said the reorganization is in preparation for the launching of the information and education campaign on climate change on June 10 this year.

He said the technical working group and the regional secretariat will meet next week to discuss the reactivation of the task force.

Meanwhile, Roservirico Tan, DENR Public Affairs Officer, said 30 information officers from their provincial and community offices as well as Philippine Information Agency managers in the region on Wednesday attended an orientation on climate change advocacy in Pagadian City.

Tan said the orientation was a collaborative effort of the DENR and the PIA.

Tan presented the Climate Change Advocacy (Perspective Change) while Protected Areas and Wildlife Division chief Cidur Julsadjiri and PIA Regional Director Noemi Edaga presented the Regional Communication Plan and Regional IEC Plan on Climate Change, respectively.

Tan said a one-hour documentary titled “Chasing Ice” was shown during the orientation to provide the participants a glimpse of the impact of global warming. (MindaNews)

    Remaining “believers”; Deny this,

    Only science can have certainty.

    Deniers/Former Believers accept science’s 32 years of nothing beyond their laughable; “95%” certainty that THE END IS NEAR not the “belief” of a mob of you determined “believers”.

    Prove us wrong by showing us that science “believes” as much as you “believers” do.

      Science is never 100% certain of anything.

      Now, how certain are you there won’t be a crisis?

      If we haven’t set the world on a course toward total polar meltdown, 75 meters of sea level rise, the drowning of the homes of 3 billion people, and untold climate chaos just with the CO₂ we’ve already emitted, why isn’t there a single previous example in Earth’s history of polar ice caps withstanding CO₂ so high?

      What impact do you think 75 meters of sea level rise might have on the residents of Mindanao who live within 75 vertical meters of the sea?
