Natural Resources of Batangas City, Batangas, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.

PIA Press Release
Thankful Batangueños vow "strong support" for PGMA
Batangas City (28 March 2008) -- The provincial government of Batangas has vowed its strong support for President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as it thanked the "untiring" Chief Executive through a Provincial Board Resolution of Support for all the graces that the province has so far received from the Arroyo administration.
The President was informed about the provincial resolution strongly supporting her after she had alighted from a bus that took her on a windshield inspection tour Wednesday (March 26) of the newly-paved 20-kilometer portion of the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (STAR) that links the Tambo interchange in Lipa City with the Balagtas interchange in Batangas City.
Sponsored by Batangas Vice Gov. Antonio "Marc" Leviste II and co-sponsored by all 12 provincial board members, the resolution dated March 24 thanked the President "for extending numerous projects and programs to Batanguenos and the province of Batangas."
"Her Excellency Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has been constantly developing the foundation for a robust and more progressive Philippines (and) has effectively widened the various socio-economic programs to increase growth and cut poverty," stressed the Provincial Board's Resolution of Support that was approved by Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto.
Recalling that President Arroyo had unveiled in her 2006 State-of-the- Nation Address (SONA) "her programs to upgrade all ways of transportation such as roads, bridges, port services and railways, among others, which are aimed at establishing economic 'super regions' to goad the development of our nation," the Batangas leaders then provided a litany of what Batangas had so far obtained from the President's super regions vision:
"As a result thereof (super regions), the Western Roll-on, Roll-off (RORO) Nautical Highway in Batangas City that connects Southern Luzon to the Visayas and Mindanao is a big success;
"The Calatagan-Lubang Port has been completed; several bridges under the President's Bridges Programs have been constructed all over Batangas province;
"The modernization program of the International Port of Batangas was turned over and inspected by the President last January 26, 2008;
"The road-widening project of the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and the construction of its extension up to Sto. Tomas, Batangas is ongoing;
"The realization of the development of a 'cyber corridor' to attract investments for the call center and business process outsourcing (BPO) sectors has been achieved; and
"The continuation of the STAR from Lipa City to Batangas City is now open for public use."
The resolution further dubbed as "clear, achievable and within reach" the President's "vision and promise… for the so-called 'Metro Luzon Beltway' which includes the Province of Batangas and the rest of Region IV into a globally competitive urban economic and tourism hub through infrastructure developments."
"The Provincial Government and Provincial Board of Batangas (are) optimistic that the priority and objective of the President's economic plan is to continuously harness together the major economic provinces and regions such as Batangas and Southern Tagalog, respectively, and make it larger than the sum of its parts, giving our kababayans the much-needed opportunities for progress," added the resolution which concluded, thus:
"The President (is) worthy of the gratitude and support of our kababayans for her untiring and resolute efforts to improve the quality of life of our people through strengthened partnerships, strong leadership, and excellent economic policies.
"As duly-elected representatives, we renew our confidence in the Arroyo administration, and we encourage the Filipino people to unite for the achievement of a common vision, and uphold the rule of law in order for our government to move on and realize a peaceful, progressive and stable nation through genuine reconciliation."
The President was joined in her bus ride cum drive-through inspection by Batangas officials led by Governor Santos-Recto, Rep. Mark Llandro Mendoza, Rep. Eileen Ermita-Buhain, Transportation Secretary Leandro Mendoza, and former Sen. Ralph Recto, among others.
