Hon. Al Gore’s Introduction of Sen. Loren Legarda, Keynote Speaker for the 31st Climate Reality Leadership Corps Training in Manila

April 7, 2016

In fact, just two days ago during my meetings in Tacloban, there were representatives from the United Nations Environment Program, the United Nations Development Program, OXFAM, one of the international NGOs that has been active in Tacloban and they were pointing out to me that some of the legislation Senator Legarda has been able to pass here in the Philippines should be regarded as a model for legislation to be considered and hopefully passed by other nations.
