We are calling for a Green Vote in the Philippine elections in 2022 not for selfish reasons but because we want the next generation to have a better future. We want a country where people can still live in good and habitable condition and perhaps if successful other countries can emulate it. The dangers of Climate Change is real. Resolving and acting on this issue is paramount and above everything else. If we cannot act on this now, then it might be too late for all of us.

“Over the past 30 years, we’ve seen progressive decline in the numbers of deaths for all people and indeed for children,” Anthony Costello, co-chair of The Lancet Countdown, told DW. “But what we’re worrying about is that all of these gains could go into reverse if we don’t urgently tackle the problem of climate change.”
The research — compiled by 35 global institutions, including the World Health Organization and the World Bank —clearly shows the relationship between climate change, environmental destruction and health. Rising temperatures fuel hunger and malnutrition, an increase in the scale and scope of infectious disease and a growing frequency of extreme weather events, while air pollution has become as deadly to the human lung as smoking tobacco.
