Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -


Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte stated that he will now back the Paris Agree­ment on Cli­mate Change after a near – unan­i­mous ap­proval by his Cabi­net and he will be sign­ing the his­toric pact last Novem­ber 7, 2016.

We can re­mem­ber that back then, our Pres­i­dent was not re­ally con­vinced with his agree­ment be­cause of some mat­ters.

The Philip­pines has now pledge to cut by 70 % of its car­bon emis­sions by 2030 a tar­get con­di­tional on as­sis­tance from the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity, as stated on the agree­ment . The Philip­pines is a trop­i­cal coun­try at the South East Asia which is rich in nat­u­ral re­sources and that is why there are nu­mer­ous beau­ti­ful places across the coun­try like the Metro Manila … BE­FORE .

Manila was once the “dream come true “of many of us be­cause of its at­trac­tive spots to peo­ple like the Manila Bay, Luneta Park and of course, it is the cen­ter of trades where there are lots of op­por­tu­nity to work and to study.

How­ever, the re­al­is­tic fan­tasy turn into a mon­ster that it tox­i­cates its peo­ple through wa­ter and air pol­lu­tion and the worst? Peo­ple put each other’s life at risk. On the other hand, we could still do some­thing in or­der to solve of these. Ob­serve dis­ci­pline. This trait is the most im­por­tant thing to have be­cause if we pos­sess this, all good things fol­low like we will not do things that are not as good. As for in­stance, we will not harm other peo­ple even the Mother Na­ture.

Show Respect. An­other char­ac­ter of good­ness that ev­ery­body should pos­sess be­cause if we respect oth­ers, there is a great chance that they will respect us too, as well as the en­vi­ron­ment. It gives us most of our ne­ces­si­ties and we should learn to ap­pre­ci­ate that.

Give Love. Love is one of the es­sen­tial needs of a hu­man and by our na­ture. Maybe, it sounds sim­ple but it may mean a lot to them .

Those three steps might be lit­tle things to have and to give but no won­der that they could change ev­ery­thing.

Manila is just a ‘dot’on our globe but we could start here for a bet­ter world. Give your­self a chance to Change!
