Subic Coal plant Update
Recently the Bugle came across an interesting article concerning a Writ of Kalikasan against the planned Coal power plant in Subic. For those who are unaware a Writ of Kalikasan is a legal remedy under Philippine law which provides for the protection one's right to "a balanced and healthful ecology in accord with the rhythm and harmony of nature," as provided for in Section 16, Article II of the Constitution. Hopefully this is the first step in stopping the planned production of this coal powered plant in our environmentally sensitive area.
