The members of the Philippine Movement for Climate Change discussed the health and environmental effects of fossil gas plants in a press conference held at a restaurant in Orosa, Manila.

This came after activities related to coastal reclamation and the construction of liquefied natural gas terminals and power plants in the province of Batangas.

A coalition of groups advocating for the protection of the Verde Island Passage recently appealed to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to investigate the environmental effects of liquefied natural gas projects in Batangas, one of the provinces surrounding the marine corridor.
