I will not state here anymore my knowledge about Climate Change. Having read my notes about Man’s Role in Changing the Physical Environment and the comments/opinions/insights here,plus the fact that I am an avid viewer of National Geographic, I'm fully aware of the environmental factors to climate change. As a housewife, the simple ways of segregating wastes, planting houseplants, using baking soda as a cleaning agent (btw, there are many ways to use baking soda other than as a cleanser), conserving water and saving electricity are not just to be carried out by an individual like me but should be disseminated and imposed and be implemented over and over again to our society, by the the LGUs and of our Government. The Climate Change Commission (CCC), the People's Survival Fund Board (PSFB) and LGUs coordination to execute its roles and responsibilities lacks clarity. How can this be dealt out? Departments have an insufficient number of knowledgeable and
skilled staff on climate policy, financing, and institutions. Why put up such commissions or boards? When we can inform and teach the public ---public awareness of implementing or imposing rules on taking care of our environment can be done through the help of the Media, Social Media, and the likes because this is not just the Government's problem, it is a global problem. Rules and Regulations, true enough, should be enforced and supported by all of us. We only have one planet to live and to end my sentiments, “The earth will not continue to offer its harvest, except with faithful stewardship. We cannot say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations.” ― John Paul II.
