Ruffy Biazon schools DENR on its dolomite project for Manila Bay

0

Ruffy Biazon had wise words to share to Environment Undersecretary Benny Antiporda after he blew his top off trying to defend his Manila Bay “white sand” project to death.

The Muntinlupa congressman said Antiporda cannot pass on the blame to scientists and critics, as the project was doomed from the start.

“This is an example of what I said earlier that Nature will have its way over Man’s folly. They dump white dolomite, Nature smothers it with sand that occurs naturally in the bay,” the politiko said.

“’Linis’ is what you do to garbage. That sand that ‘washed in’ isn’t garbage. It’s naturally occuring in the bay, unlike the dolomite. It will happen over and over again,” he added.

Antiporda had the guts to even spite the UP Marine Science Institute about not helping out and just criticizing because they were trolls, as apparently, it was so uncalled for.

“It seems they’ll have to spend more money just to ensure the white sand isn’t washed over by the dark sand,” Biazon said. “I wonder if Secretary Roy Cimatu shares the opinion of his Usec with regard to the scientific assessment by the UP Marine Science Institute on their Manila Bay beach nourishment project.”
