EXPOSED: GINA LOPEZ, BINIGYAN NG BILYONG PISONG KONTRATA ANG SARILING PAMILYA

GINAGAMIT ni Environment Secretary Gina Lopez ang kanyang puwesto sa administrasyon para tumabo ng pera ang kompanya na pag-aari ng kanyang pamilya.

GINAGAMIT ni Environment Secretary Gina Lopez ang kanyang puwesto sa administrasyon para tumabo ng pera ang kompanya na pag-aari ng kanyang pamilya.

Ito ay matapos niyang bigyan nitong January lang ng environment compliance certificate (ECC) ang Green Core Geothermal Inc. na maitayo ang Tongonan Geothermal Power Project in Barangay Lim-ao, Kananga, Leyte kasabay ng kanyang pagpapasara o pagsuspinde sa operasyon ng mga kakompetensiyang kompanya.

Kapalit ng pagkakamal ng kita ng Green Core Geothermal Inc. ay litaw na litaw ang bias at conflict of interest sa parte ni Sec. Lopez at ito ang dapat mabatid ng mga mambabatas na uupo sa confirmation ng kalihim sa March 1.

Ang takot ng marami ay hindi magagampanan nang ganap ni Sec. Lopez ang kanyang tungkulin kapag ganito lalo’t ang Lopez family ay involved sa energy sector.

Ang tanong tuloy ngayon ay paano niya bibigyan ng patas na hatol ang mga environment catastrophe kapag sangkot na ang energy business ng mga Lopez tulad 2010 FPIC pipeline na sumira sa West Tower Condominium.

Ang geothermal power plant ng mga Lopez na kompleto sa auxiliary systems at 138-kilovolt substation ay nakatayo sa mahigit 14 ektarya ng bundok at inaasahang makalilikha ng 123 megawatts.

Maaaring imbestigahan ng publiko ang inisyung ECC pabor sa Green Core Geothermal Inc. sa tanggapan ng Environmental Management Bureau na pirmado ng isang Jacqueline Caancan — ang officer-in-charge ng tanggapan — gamit ang otoridad o by the authority ni Lopez.

EXPOSED: GOVT SCIENCE AGENCY OPERATE ON PSEUDO-SCIENCE

On the first flag ceremony Lopez attended with the department, “I Believe I Can Fly” was sung, raising a lot of eyebrows and drawing some sneers.

Gina Lopez is treating the DENR as her own private church/ retreat house. Joselito Blanco and Raul Urmamac, provincial environment and natural resources officers of Aurora and Bataan, respectively, have been relieved from their posts. Others more were put on floating status. Why? Because their photos do not emit the right aura.

That’s right; Lopez, who recently posted a video of herself wearing only robes on her social media account after just having emerged from a meditation, asked to have photos of her staff in the department and had them assessed by her guru in India and her geomancers via email. If her “consultants” do not approve of the employees’ chakra and feng shui, these employees can very well say goodbye to their careers as government employees.

Lopez enrolled right-hand man and former DENR Undersecretary Leo Jasareno in a wellness seminar. He underwent a major transformation. Yes sir, this is where our taxes go.

On the first flag ceremony Lopez attended with the department, “I Believe I Can Fly” was sung, raising a lot of eyebrows and drawing some sneers. She distributed wellness oils to employees to ‘harness positive energy.’ She’s a strange one, for sure.

We can accept the eccentricities of some of our leaders so long as these do not directly interfere with or affect the way they rule. But if they start consulting geomancers and make crucial decisions affecting millions of Filipinos based on the way the stars align, then we have to draw the line. For if doing so makes one qualified for such a position in government, then let it be known that a lot of Pinoys also read their horoscope on a daily basis.

TRENDING: MGA PRO-MINING ADVOCATES HINAHARASS NA

Diktador na pamamahala ni Environment Secretary Gina Lopez sa kanyang departamento, ganoon din ang asta ng kanyang supporters (EcoWarriors) sa social media.

BUKOD sa diktador na pamamahala ni Environment Secretary Gina Lopez sa kanyang departamento kaugnay ng pagsuspinde o pagpapasara sa 28 mining sites sa buong bansa, parang ganoon din ang nagiging asta ng kanyang  supporters sa social media.

Isang halimbawa rito ang pangha-harass at pagbibigay ng death threat gamit ang cellphone sa isang Jose Bayani Dichosa Baylon – taga-Makati, isang engineer, at pro-responsible mining advocate.

Sa una ay nagpakilala kunwari ang suspect na isang UP engineering student na nakadalo sa isang seminar ni Engineer Baylon subalit nang kanya itong replayan ng “Yes” ay kung ano-ano nang masasamang salita ang sinabi nito tulad ng “Bakit mayabang kang putang mo ina mo ka?” at “Babaon kita ng minahan nyo e.”

Tingnan ang SMS exchanges ng dalawa rito:

Tinawanan lang ito ni Baylon pero hindi pa rito natigil ang suspect dahil nagpatuloy ito sa pagte-text ng “Putang ina mo kantutin ko asawa mo e” at “Okay copy sir. Atlis (At least) namura kitang kupal ka.”

Ginawa ito ng suspect sa kabila ng pagsasabi ng engineer na nasa Facebook na ang masasamang text sa kanya at iingatan niya ito bilang record.

Nagkaroon pa ng SMS exchanges ang dalawa matapos nito subalit nakapangangamba para kay Baylon ang pinakahuling text na binitiwan ng suspect: “Payo lang ikaw ang mag-ingat.”

Nangyari ang death threat at harassment kay Engineer Baylon sa gitna ng kanyang pangunguna sa paggigiit para sa responsible mining kung saan walang pakundangan na ipinasara o ipinasuspinde ni Secretary Gina Lopez ang mga naturang mining site sa kabila ng mga katibayan ng pagsunod ng mga kompanya sa mga itinatadhana ng batas kaugnay ng pagmimina.

 

Napakatapang naman yatang magtext ng pananakot ang taong ito.

Samantala, nakapost sa facebook ng DENR ang testimonial ni Julie Yap Daza sa Manila Bulletin kung saan ibinuking na ito palang si Secretary Gina ay pinagkalooban ng sangkaterbang bodyguards ng gobyerno at ng kanyang kapatid na oligarch.

Hindi ba’t ang isang tulad ni Baylon ang tunay na nangangailangan ng bodyguards ngayon dahil nakatanggap siya ng harassment at death threat?

VIRAL: RENOWNED UP PROF AND GEOLOGIST DEBUNKS GINA LOPEZ’S CLAIMS ON MINING

DENR insiders have been informing Dr. Arcilla of Lopez’s stubborn disregard for technical reports simply because no violations were found by auditors.

Respected geologist and UP Professor Caloy Arcilla debunks DENR Secretary Gina Lopez’s claims on the ill-effects of mining.

In a series of posts on his Facebook page, Arcilla says that DENR insiders have been informing him of Lopez’s stubborn disregard for technical reports simply because no violations were found by auditors. Insiders add that Lopez would rather believe NGO’s claims despite the fact that these biased groups have no technical and scientific background on mining.

Arcilla also argued against Lopez’s claims that ecotourism would bring about twice the income from mining. “The figures (show) that mining has more than twice the income from tourism,” says Arcilla. “In fact, the one tourism project that Secretary Lopez tried in the south Sabsaban Falls failed miserably. Before you close the mines, please make sure you have the income you promise NOW.”

TRENDING: ERWIN TULFO AYAW KAY GINA LOPEZ BILANG DENR SEC

NAGSALITA na rin ang popular broadcaster na si Erwin Tulfo laban kay Environment Sec. Gina Lopez. Ayon kay Tulfo, “Tinik ka sa administrasyon ni Duterte!”

Ayon kay Tulfo, ginoyo ni Gi-Lo (na umaasta noon bilang crusading environmentalist) si PDigong dahil sa pinag-akala ng una ang huli na karapat-dapat ito sa puwesto bilang kalihim ng Environment Department.

Hirit tuloy ng isa sa mga sigang Tuflo brothers, maami ang napataas ang kilay, kabilang na ang mga mambabatas, nang sabihin ni Lopez na ipasasara nito ang lahat ng mga mining companies dahil para rito: “There’s no such thing as responsible mining.”

Diin ni Erwin, mag-iisang taon na sa puwesto si Sec. Gina pero Ngunit puro mga small-time mining companies lang ang tinatarget nito habang mistulang bulag naman ito sa talamak na illegal logging at destructive fish pens sa Manila Bay at Laguna de Bay, air pollution, at patuloy na pagdumi ng Pasig River.

Pinupulaan tuloy, sabi ni Tuflo, ang DENR chief sa pagiging biased in favor of mining companies na sumuporta sa Liberal Party noong nakaraang 2016 national elections.

“Ang mga dambuhalang mining firm na bumagsak sa DENR audit ay patuloy na pinapayagan ni Lopez na magpasasa at gahasain ang kalikasan sa mga probinsya sa Mindanao,” aniya.

Taliwas sa pangako ni Gina kay Presidente na ipasasara niya ang mga environmental violators, mukhang natanso ang Chief Executive sa pagtitiwala rito, dagdag pa ni Tulfo.

Sa kasalukuyan, apektado ang mahigit isang milyong katao na kinabibilangan ng mga pamilya ng mga manggagawa at empleyado ng mga small mining firms na ipinasara ni Lopez dahil napagkaitan ng livelihood just because their employers lack political connections.

Ang panawagan ni Erwin Tulfo kay Pangulong Duterte: “As far as I’m concerned, ‘di na karapat-dapat na manatili pa sa panunungkulan itong DENR Secretary na ito, Manong Digong, Sir.”

EXPOSED: GINA LOPEZ, HER FAMILY, AND THEIR HISTORY OF ENVIRONMENTAL VIOLATIONS



Cancer-causing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are deadly byproducts of the power plant. The Lopezes violated many environmental laws.

Back in 2001, when the elite commercial and business district we now know as Rockwell was just rising from the ground, the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) took the Lopezes to task for their violations of environmental laws. You see, the place where the Lopez owned district would rise was once a Meralco power plant, which was also once owned by the influential family.

Cancer-causing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are deadly byproducts of the power plant. And the Lopezes, in their eagerness to provide the richest of the rich an exclusive community, violated many environmental laws just to rid of Rockwell of these hazardous refuse. Their solution? Entomb PCBs in cement and bury it in neighbouring community of San Joaquin. San Joaquin is home to low to middle income residents. And it stands on a major faultline. If struck by an earthquake, PCBs will surely leak out to the soil. In fact, even without an earthquake, PCBs may still leak out as cement is a porous material. PCBs are so toxic, even minute amounts of it can do damage to a person’s health.

Which puts to question Gina Lopez’s qualification as DENR secretary. Given her family’s history, why should we entrust this person to safeguard our environment? Will she hold her family accountable for their disregard of the safety of common folks?

Clearly, the Lopezes put on a false appearance of virtue. They act in contradiction to their stated beliefs. Incidentally, these are the definitions of the word hypocrite.

EXPOSED: MGA KAPALPAKAN NI GINA LOPEZ

Wala tayo mapapala kapag naging kalihim si Gina Lopez. Huwag natin hayaan na gamitin nya ang DENR para sa personal nyang agenda.

KUMAKALAT ngayon ang isang opposition paper sa confirmation sa Commission on Appointments ni Gina Lopez bilang Environment Secretary kung saan sinasabi na siya ay naglustay ng milyong-milyong piso, itinaboy ang mga katutubo mula sa kanilang lupa, walang habas na nagputol ng mga puno, at kinopo ang mga proyekto ng gobyerno para sa kapakinabangan ng mga kompanya ng kapamilya gamit ang kanyang estado bilang isang environment advocate.

Basehan nito ang iniulat ng Finance Department na aabot sa halos isang bilyong piso ang mawawalang buwis sa mga lokal na pamahalaan sa desisyon ni Sec. Gina na ipasara ang 28 mining sites sa buong bansa.

Ayon sa report, tatamaan ang kita ng 17 siyudad at munisipalidad sa 10 probinsiya ng bansa.

Lumilitaw din na panget ang track record ni Lopez sa pamamahala sa mga eco-tourism project at ilan dito ang tatlong environment project na in-award sa kanya.

May conflict of interest dahil tumayong managing director si Lopez sa ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. at Bantay Kalikasan na nagkamal ng salapi mula sa mga naturang proyekto.

Tumakbo ang mga tinukoy na proyekto ni Lopez na Sabsaban Falls Eco-tourism Project sa Palawan, La Mesa Ecopark Project sa Quezon City, at Pasig River Rehabilitation Project sa ilalim ng mga nagdaang administrasyon at nagripuhan ang kaban ng bayan ng multi-milyong piso.

Kasabay ng kumakalat na opposition paper na ito, nagpasa rin sa CA ang mga katutubo sa Surigao ng isa pang opposition paper laban kay Sec. Lopez.

Anila, maghihirap silang muli kapag ipinahinto ng kalihim ang pagmimina sa kanilang probinsiya lalo’t lumalabas na walang kahandaan ang ibang departamento ng gobyerno para matugunan ang kanilang sitwasyon na resulta ng padalos-dalos na hakbang ni Sec. Gina.

TRENDING: TOP DU30 SUPPORTER and DLSU Professor Antonio P. Contreras lectures Gina Lopez

Gina Lopez is apparently clueless as to the definition of a watershed. She also falsely claims that underground mining can cause earthquakes.

DLSU Professor Antonio Contreras debunks Gina Lopez’s unscientific claims about mining. Lopez is apparently clueless as to the definition of a watershed. She also falsely claims that underground mining can cause earthquakes.

“When Gina Lopez is presented with arguments that question the scientific and legal basis of her claims, she deploys her emotional litany of saving the earth,” says Contreras. “She is dangerous because she exploits people’s emotions and fears.”

Contreras also cautions Du30 supporters against blind idolatry regarding Gina Lopez.

“My advise to Digong supporters, stop committing idolatry.  Even towards Gina Lopez.  Even the President would disapprove of it.”

VIRAL: GINA LOPEZ, SUPPORTED BY YELLOW ARMY?



In what could be an attempt to sabotage the current administration, the group “SilentNoMore” expressed their support for Gina Lopez as DENR Secretary.

In what could be an attempt to sabotage the current administration, the group “SilentNoMore” expressed their support for Gina Lopez as DENR Secretary.

This prompted some quarters to ask: Why is Lopez being supported by staunch anti-Duterte groups?

The answer is simple: If Gina Lopez successfully crashes the mining industry and results in a significant dive of the economy, it would be the easiest way to have the President removed from office and have the Yellow Army rule the country once more.

EXPOSED: Gina Lopez’s History of Drug Dependency and Personality Disorder

Gina Lopez is not only a spoiled brat, she is also a former drug addict. Maybe it would be in everyone’s best interest if she finishes her rehabilitation!

Gina Lopez is not only a spoiled brat, she is also a former drug addict. She was committed to a drug rehabilitation facility by her own mother. She fled the facility knowing that a medical examination would be made to properly diagnose her drug dependence and personality disorder.

This bit of history is important, moreso in her role as DENR Secretary. It is highly likely that Lopez has channeled her energy away from drug addiction to a new-found passion–it would soon become apparent to everyone that this was her advocacy in protecting the environment.

It is common for recovering addicts to commit themselves to a higher purpose, submitting themselves to something bigger than them. It is a necessary step in their fight against their own demons.

The problem of course is that government institutions are not rehab facilities. They are not personal churches. They are not a universe you can re-arrange just so they can revolve around you.

Perhaps it would be best if Lopez would subject herself to medical professionals for a proper diagnosis. If you are to be responsible for the death of an industry that mean so much to many communities let alone a nation’s economy, we deserve to know if you are not, in fact, unhinged.

Better yet, maybe it would be in everyone’s best interest if she finishes her rehabilitation in the proper facilities.

VIRAL: Unhinged: Is Gina Lopez Fit to Lead?

“Fuck the law!” said Gina Lopez at a cabinet meeting, fellow secretaries were expressing their concern to DENR head Gina Lopez.



”Fuck the law!”

At a cabinet meeting, fellow secretaries were expressing their concern to DENR head Gina Lopez regarding her disregard of due process in closing mines and suspending mining operations. That was her retort.

It should have been a warning sign when Lopez became visibly annoyed by prodding questions from reporters regarding the Mines and Geosciences Bureau’s (MGB) mining audit report in a press conference early February.  “I don’t have to have you privy to the process on which I make my decisions,” Lopez addressed the reporters petulantly. “What I’m sharing with you are the principles on which I standby, and I truly hope you share the same principles because you’re Filipino.”

Principles are a funny thing. They are extremely subjective. Lopez’ sweeping gesture of contempt against mining has drawn support from those brainwashed by pop culture that vilifies men in suits and those in giant corporations. It should come as no surprise, given the demonization of money in the country by teleseryes and movies; never mind that Iron Man, Batman, Doctor Strange and other pop culture icons Pinoys have admired from foreign cultures were in fact billionaires.

This is where Principles become a problem when used as a tool by public officials. Lopez may seem as though she is advocating for the common good. But her background as a member of one of the most powerful families in the Philippines (who are, unironically, responsible for the teleseryes vilifying the wealthy) that is largely monopolizing industries in the country, makes her so-called good intentions questionable.

Lest people forget, Lopez has displaced IPs in Palawan for her eco resort in 2012. This is concrete proof that the principled DENR secretary has a history of doing more harm than good, no thanks to her “good intentions.” Reporters badgered her then as well, and when she was asked about a lawsuit filed against her by IP groups, she was, you guessed it, visibly annoyed. “That’s a nuisance suit,” she said. “I just want to help them.”

This is why emotions are a bad tool for governance. When you are a public servant wielding your principles and emotions as an instrument, you never know whether you are doing good or inflicting harm. Emotions should never be your guide as a government executive.

That is why we have laws.

DISPLACED MAKATI RESIDENTS SEE CONFLICT OF INTEREST WITH GINA LOPEZ AS DENR SEC

Netizens complain about Gina Lopez’s hypocrisy as the DENR secretary preaches about environement safety yet has forgotten about Makati residents displaced from their homes because of an oil spill incident involving Lopez-owned First Philippine Industrial Corporation (FPIC) in 2010.
