Tom Villarin said there must be wider recognition and awareness of how the environment is helping protect the nation from more disastrous typhoons.
The former Akbayan congressman honored the Sierra Madre mountain range for softening the blow of Supertyphoon Karding, acting as a natural barrier to approaching storms. He is aware, however, of movements that would potentially break Sierra Madre’s wall of defense for profit.
He wants September 26 of every tear to be “Save Sierra Madre Day,” with a call to drop the planned Kaliwa Dam construction.
