I am very thankful that I was able to attend to this event. I learned regarding Cleaner Energy and should encourage all the people to talk about the Climate realities to forecasts for the future of the planet. Climate Reality unifies voices for cleaner and dependable enery, the international organization has launched the “Let’s Talk Cleaner Energy” campaign in the Philippines last November 28, 2016. Challenging Filipinos to consider cleaner alternative energy sources that can power the country. Climate Reality Project, a global, multi-sectoral alliance advocating grassroots participation in climate change issues,to explore the vulnerabilities faced coal-dependent countries, like the Philippines.

“If there is one thing that we should talk about, shouldn’t it be our future? The Philippines has had opinion leaders start conversations on climate change on the global platform, but we need to unify these voices back home and commit to change our nation’s course. I believe that is what we are doing today,” said RodneGalicha, Climate Reality Project Philippines manager. He noted that elsewhere in the world, the movement for renewable power has been rapidly advancing. India has brought down the cost of solar energy, and successfully made it cheaper than coal-generated power.
Galicha asserts it can be done in the Philippines. “We have hydropower, geothermal energy, solar energy, wind power, and biomass. These are already utilized in different parts of the Philippines, and still have great potential to expand in the coming years.”
The Climate Reality Project Philippines manager likewise called on to recognize the impact of shying away from the conversation on climate change. Galicha explained a three-fold threat to the nation that only grows as it is delayed: the increasing rate of climate risk, the dependence on dwindling coal reserves, and the indifference of population accustomed to climate change.
At the end of the program, Climate Reality Project Philippines representatives made the symbolic gesture to fight climate change and coal-driven degradation by pushing a “stop the emission” button. The environmental advocates then removed their face masks and called on the audience, “Let’s talk cleaner energy.”
