Last February 11, 2019, at the oversight committee hearing on Metro Manila Development at the House of Representatives of the Philippines chaired by Rep. Winston “Winnie” Castelo, we made it clear that reclamation is basically in itself marine pollution, using common sense and science. This will also worsen the impacts of climate change such as sea level rise, storm surges, heavy rainfall and floods. We need to choose first between rehabilitation or reclamation. No doubt that pushing for reclamation goes against Supreme Court’s continuing mandamus. Read The Climate Reality Project Philippines‘ statement here: https://bit.ly/2SIGmfs
