Philippines delegate to the Climate Change Summit in Poland, Naderev Saño, delivered this heartfelt speech not only about Haiyan’s impact to the Philippines but also the impact of global warming to our planet.
The ever more powerful storms in both the Pacific and the Atlantic show a trend of increased weather disturbances. Yes, the Philippines is in the headlines all over the world right now because of the destructive path that Haiyan took over my country but I am sure none of my countrymen, those affected and not affected by this storm, wished this attention upon us, upon our homeland.
Like Mr. Saño, I pray that those who have the capability and influence do what is right which is to perform their duties as champions of Mother Nature.
