Groups eye Naga plants

Groups eye Naga plants


CEBU-based environmental groups recently joined an international campaign aimed at curtailing the effects of climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Vince Cinches, Central Visayas Fisherfolk Development Center Inc. (Fidec) executive director, said their commitment to the group 350.org, consists of campaigning against coal-fired plants like those being set up in Naga City.

“An additional power plant would produce two parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide which is a type of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere,” Cinches said.

He said the country's carbon dioxide level now stands at 387 ppm.
