CENSER teams up with Greenpeace to save
the environment

In preparation for the next United Nations Earth Summit in July 2002, the Center for Natural Sciences and Environmental Research (CENSER) joins forces with Greenpeace Southeast Asia and The Body Shop Philippines to promote environmental awareness. To know the right facts and action to take, the group will hold a seminar on the greenhouse effect and global warming on August 17, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., at the Science and Technology Research Center (STRC) Building.

Primarily, the seminar aims to create awareness about global warming and encourage participants to make a wise choice for the environment. It also advocates the use of clean and renewable energy in all phases of production and consumption of products.

Despite the commitment made by the international governments in the 1992 Earth Summit to cut down the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) and other harmful gases, recent studies indicate that the global environment is still under a serious threat. At the heart of the problem is the climate change marked by unpredictable weather patterns. This is evident in the occurrence of droughts, floods, and hurricanes that increase in frequency and severity across the world.
