WE are facing environmental problem that caused destruction to lives and properties as we experienced the devastating effect of typhoons "Ondoy" and "Peping" in our country.
Why are we battling these problems of global warming and sudden climate change. What happened to the trees in the forest? The soil was eroded also because there are no roots that hold it together.
Garbage is found everywhere. There is no proper waste management even though various orientations and workshops were given to solve those problems.
Who is then to be blamed? What a pity sight our environment had! It is the right time to act now. Let's all wake up and do our task to regain the beauty and usefulness of our environment. The change starts in ourselves. Let's start anew to save our environment.
