Former Manila mayor Lito Atienza, whom I greatly dislike, has apparently been appointed as the new secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the same man who ordered the Arroceros Forest Park closed and chopped down 70% of its trees. What does he know about the environment anyway? The man is an idiot. Yeah, I know insulting people won’t do any good, but seriously. To think that the president is currently claiming to be stepping up the fight to save the environment. I was already surprised when Angelo Reyes, former chief of staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, held the post, but this one just takes the cake. One has to wonder what credentials the government looks for in someone who’s supposed to be in this position.
