But it took eight years –EIGHT FREAKIN’, GLOBAL WARMIN’, OIL SLICKIN’ YEARS– before the Arroyo Administration thought of taking up the cudgels to finally rehabilitate a dying Manila Bay where, according to stories, sardines once teemed. Well now it’s teeming with biologically contaminated fish, toxic sludge, bloated crime victims, and other mutated f*ck-knows-what.
The question is why did it take eight years before the current administration thought of winding up it’s ass to do some real rehabilitation of one of the world’s most famous bays? Do they always have to rely on Supreme Court decisions even with environmental concerns such as conserving the beauty and cleanliness of our country’s most historical bay?
It took eight years –and a little over eight months before the next national elections– for the people to finally see some environmental action from the self-styled environmental czar of the Philippines. Hmmm.
What was that APO Hiking Society song again? Oh yeah, Nakapagtataka…
