Former DENR Secretary Gina Lopez wants her followers to express their anger at some members of the Committee on Appointments. One of them is Senator Migs Zubiri.
Lopez’s minions are saying that Zubiri is biased towards mining and is not an environmentalist.
That’s right: Zubiri, who authored Organic Agriculture Act of 2010, Wildlife Conservation and Protection Act, and chairs oversight committees on Ecological Solod Waste Management Act, Clean Air Act, founder of a deer preservation foundation and another that seeks protection of wildlife and their habitat, is not an environmentalist. According to Lopez’s followers.
Interestingly, Lopez’s disciples think her advocacy of turning the Department of Environment and Natural Resources into Department of Closure of Mines and Suspension of Mining Operations is enough to qualify her as an environmentalist.
