DENR urged to penalize polluters

Climate activists join residents of communities affected by pollution from coal-fired power plants as they picket in front of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Quezon City on Thursday. The protesters are calling on the government to increase efforts in enforcing cleaner air amid reports on unhealthy air quality in the country. The protesters raised concern on DENR USec. Benny Antiporda's dismissive reaction and plan to sue 2019 World Air Quality Report publisher IQAir for its report on air quality in the Philippines.
