Editorial: Suspending classes
November 25, 2016
GOV. Hilario Davide III, after consulting with officials of the weather bureau Pagasa, suspended classes in all levels the other day and the whole day yesterday following the entry of tropical depression Marce in the Philippine area of responsibility and projections that it would pass by Cebu.
Marce, however, had other things in mind. While it momentarily strengthened into a tropical storm, it veered away from Cebu. The rainfall, which was projected to be heavy, was light and not sustained. This has led some sectors to question the correctness of the decision to suspend classes in many Cebu schools.

February 21, 2017

MovePH's Voltaire Tupaz talks to a community in Bataan complaining of health problems allegedly caused by the power plants in their area.
There is a growing trend across countries to shift from coal to clean energy sources. The Philippines, however, is deviating from this trend, having approved 29 additional coal-fired power plants, which will be operational by 2020.
Coal is among the major sources of greenhouse gas emissions, one of the biggest culprits behind global warming and climate change.
This has sparked protests in communities where coal-fired power plants operate.

Climate change: Why PH should care
Aug 23, 2016
We’re in the second half of the year and that means the rainy season is here. But it’s not the usual wet season - experts warn of La Niña, a natural phenomenon that’ll make rains more frequent and stronger. It’s the flip side of El Niño, which brought the drought we’ve just witnessed across the country, especially in Mindanao.
El Niño and La Niña will be made harder by the effects of climate change. Filipinos should understand that while they bear the brunt of the effects of climate change, they can also do something to mitigate it.
