Climate Justice Group Welcomes DENR Review on Coal Plants but Bats to Include a More Comprehensive Energy Review

The Philippine Movement for Climate Justice (PMCJ) welcomes the recent pronouncement of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to conduct a review of all the permits and operations of the existing coal-fired power plants. This came as a reaction to the news quoting Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Regina Paz “Gina” Lopez that the review is necessary to check and assure that the plants pose no danger to the environment. The group believes that if done, it will definitely alleviate the long standing miseries the communities been subjected to like the various social, environmental and health impacts brought about by these dirty and harmful power plants. However, the group warns that the review is not a simple process and hopes that it will not redound to mere lip service.
