Direktiba ni Digong sa renewable energy dedma kay Cusi

BINATIKOS ng grupo ng mga kinatawan ng con­sumer na tagapag­tagu­yod ng environment at clean energy, at ‘coal-affected communities’ ang Department of Energy (DOE) na pina­mumu­nuan ni Sec. Alfonso Cusi dahil sa hindi pagsunod sa direktiba ng Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa kaniyang State of the Nation Address (SONA), na paunlarin ang Re­newable Energy (RE) at bawasan ang paggamit ng uling o carbon.

Dahil dito, nana­wagan ang mga miyem­bro ng Power for People (P4P) coalition kay DOE Sec. Cusi na huwag nang magpatumpik-tumpik at ipatupad ang imple­men­tasyon ng nasabing direk­tiba ng pangulo at ipa­hinto ang paggamit ng carbon.

“Despite the Pre­si­dent’s positive remarks on RE, Sec. Cusi is showing his bias for coal by continuing to support the construction of new coal-fired power plants in the pipeline. Until now, no concrete action has been put in place by the DOE to pursue this shift,” ayon kay Gerry Arances, con­venor ng P4P at spokes­person ng consumer group Murang Kuryente.

Muling iginiit ng grupo na i-formalize ang direktiba ng Pangulong Duterte ukol sa RE at carbon sa pamamagitan ng Executive Order.

“If the DOE remains disinterested in pursuing this shift, our coal dependence will remain unhindered for decades more at the expense of affected communities and consumers. We need an EO to ensure that the DOE and other mandated agencies are performing accordingly to the Pre­sident’s promise and are accountable if they fail to do so,” giit ni Arances.

Binigyang diin ng Philippine Movement for Climate Justice (PMCJ) National Coordinator Ian Rivera na ang DOE sa ilalim ni Cusi ay nag­silbing ‘instrumental’ para sa pagsusulong ng coal projects sa bansa na idineklara bilang ‘Energy Projects of National Significance.”

“Filipinos have long been wanting for cheap, affordable and climate-compatible energy source. Secretary Cusi’s claim that coal will only serve as a bridge fuel is a deadly recourse. It undermines the President’s decla­ration, jeopardizes the country’s energy security and hastens the climate crisis,” dagdag ng PMCJ.

Nabatid na aprobado sa DOE bilang head agency, ng Energy Invest­ment Coordinating Coun­cil (EICC) ang kontro­bersiyal na proyekto, gaya ng 1,200 MW Atimonan power station at 15 MW DMCI-backed coal powerplant sa popular tourist destination, sa Palawan. “DOE’s in­action on the President’s call to pursue renewable energy contradicts its mandate under the Renewable Energy Act and the law creating the DOE,” pahayag ni Atty. Gerthie Mayo-Anda chair­person ng  Save Palawan Movement.

ni ROSE NOVENARIO TODO-SUPORTA si Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos, Jr., sa pagtatayo ng Bulacan Airport City Special Economic Zone and Freeport at ang kanyang desisyon na i-veto ang House Bill 7575 ay may layuning ayusin ang mga depekto ng panukalang batas. “Presidential Veto is fastest way to cure the defects of HB 7575 especially the provision which exempts the Commission on Audit to look into the financial transactions on the special economic zone and freeport,” sabi ni Press Secretary Trixie Cruz- Angeles. “Had the President not vetoed the HB 7575, it would have lapsed into law on July 4 or 30 days after the bill was sent by the legislature to Malacañang,” dagdag niya. Giit ng kalihim, kapos ang panukalang batas ng mga sangkap upang iugnay sa ibang batas, patakaran at regulasyon dahil hindi nakasaad dito na sakop ito ng audit provisions ng Commission on Audit (COA), “procedures for the expropriation of lands awarded to agrarian reform beneficiaries and a master plan for the specific metes and bounds of the economic zone.” Binigyan diin ni Angeles, lahat ng transaksiyon sa pananalapi ng gobyerno ay isinasailalim sa audit procedures ng COA at hindi dapat absuwelto sa naturang proseso ang Bulacan Airport City Special Economic Zone and Freeport. “Without those necessary amendments indicated in the veto explanation, the law may be vulnerable to constitutional challenge. The delegation of rule-making power on environmental laws which is unique to the special economic zone is of particular concern,” ani Angeles. Inilinaw ni Angeles, tuloy ang konstruksiyon ng P740-billion international airport sa Bulacan dahil ang “San Miguel franchise to operate the airport” ay aprobado ng Senado at Kamara noong 11 Oktubre 2020. “The construction of the Bulacan international airport and aero city is not affected by the veto. The presidential veto was meant to include the necessary corrections and include the missing processes that might render HB 7575 entirely unconstitutional,” paliwanag niya.
