Duterte calls Climate Change Commission ‘very inutil’, downplays global efforts vs climate change
By Prince Golez
Over the lack of sanctions against the largest climate polluters, President Rodrigo Duterte said the Climate Change Commission has become a “very inutile” agency.
In a speech delivered in Sarangani on Friday, Duterte reiterated that climate change conferences were a waste of money.
“You can commit so many things there, excess of carbon monoxide and all, and yet there is no sanction,” the President said.
“UN should better understand that. It has to have a sanction for violators. Without a sanction, I do not think that it will succeed. It will only fail and worsen the situation for the coming generation,” he added.
Duterte stressed the need for urgent action to address climate change tp spare children from the ever-worsening effects of climate change.
“You and I know that if you cannot arrest climate change now, sigurado ‘yan, our children will suffer more severe climate changes, typhoons and all,” according to him.
