A group of environmentalists on Friday appealed to the national government to take the issue of climate change in the country seriously and focus on climate extremes, which have caused the deadly landslide in Maco, Davao de Oro in February.

Interview during DZRH's Damdaming Bayan, Roy Cabonegro of Makakalikasan Nature Party Philippines stressed how local government units (LGUs) remain blind on the correct response on the tragic results of climate extremes.

He mentioned the lack of Local Climate Change Action Plans that guide each LGU in placing the right funds for in responding to the problems brought by El Niño and La Niña in the lives and occupations of the citizens.

Cabonegro added that the government should face the threat of climate change as it is one of the big political issues that causes distress to the livelihood and even teh future of Filipinos.

He called on the people to stand up for the establishment of 'Green Government,' where the government seriously appreciates the threat of climate extreme, including the methods to prevent its severe impact on the people.

In a recent survey by the Social Weather Station (SWS), 87 percent of Filipinos said they experienced climate change in the past three years.

In an in-person survey conducted from December 8 to 11 last year, the results showed that by magnitude, 19 percent have experienced climate change’s severe impact, 43 percent said it was moderate, and 24 percent said it had little impact on their lives.
