Petition from the Philippine' chief negotiator at climate change conference
Like so many of you, I am heartbroken when I look at the images of disaster in the Philippines. It particularly touches me because I spent four months in the Philippines in 1991 and I know of the hard circumstances most people live under even in the best of times. I also know of the hope, resiliency, and strength of the Filipino people. However, this storm is of staggering proportion.
