Filipino Climate Chief: ‘Stop This Madness’
Posted on Nov 12, 2013
Yeb Saño choked up while speaking at the international climate conference in Warsaw in the wake of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), which is estimated to have killed more than 10,000 people: “I speak for the countless people who will no longer be able to speak for themselves after perishing from the storm.”
Only a year ago, Saño pleaded with his fellow delegates at the Doha climate conference to be accountable not to the governments that sent them, but the 7 billion people at risk of natural disasters caused or made worse by climate change.
