Climate change blamed for Philippines flooding

The Philippine government says at least 246 people have died in flooding caused after Tropical Storm Ketsana struck on Saturday. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) blamed the massive flooding caused by the unprecedented storm on environmental degradation and climate change. “The DENR takes note of these tragic consequences of environmental degradation and climate change which is the cause of all these problems,” DENR Secretary Jose Atienza Jr. said, adding: “Nature is getting back at us in a very violent manner because of our neglect, abuse, and inability to protect the environment.” Picture source: Reuters
