On Earth Day, April 22, at 10:15 p.m., GMA News TV proudly presents “Addressing the Climate Crisis”—a one-on-one interview of “News to Go” anchor Howie Severino with environmental activist and former US Vice President Al Gore.
In 2013, Super Typhoon Yolanda, which claimed more than 6,000 lives, became the deadliest tropical cyclone to hit the Philippines in recent history. Now, the developing El Niño threatens food security in the country. These recent, extreme weather events demonstrate how vulnerable the Philippines is to what experts believe, are the very real impacts of climate change.
In the face of this growing threat, how can our country respond?
In this interview with Gore a few days after his surprise visit to Leyte in March, the environmental activist discusses the possible solutions to climate change – from the transition to renewable energy to government intervention.
