    I have come to greatly admire the leadership of Senator Loren Legarda.

    Some of the legislation that she has not only introduced but enacted, are now being regarded as model for many other countries around the world. She has been a passionate advocate for many years and she is now in a position of great authority and influence in the Senate. I meet with a lot of leaders around the world who deal with the climate issue. It really is a genuine pleasure to work with Senator Legarda.
