We have our own climate change champion here in the Philippines, Sen. Loren Legarda who was among the people in this part of the world to congratulate DiCaprio through her official Twitter account: “Climate change is real. Congrats #LeoDiCaprio! #oscars2016 #bestactor #Revenant. A former broadcaster before she turned to politics, and multi-awarded as a journalist, Legarda has taken to heart the issue of climate change. As someone who grew up in flood-prone Malabon, she was exposed early to the importance of taking care of one’s environment. She saw for herself how irresponsible garbage disposal added to the problem of low-lying areas in Metro Manila and contributed to severe flooding, especially during typhoon season.
