The photo above shows activists hoisting a balloon with the message 'Stop Funding Climate Change' outside the Asian Development Bank Headquarters in Pasig City, which is east of the Philippine capital, Manila. We're demanding that ADB, Asia's largest institution lender, stop supporting fossil fuel and dirty energy projects that cause climate change and inflict harm to thousands of people and instead aggressively fund renewable energy initiatives in the region.The ADB is set to release its energy policy in the next few weeks.
Will the ADB finally stop funding climate change? »
Tell the Philippine Government you want 10% of the country’s energy to come from renewable sources such as the sun, wind and modern biomass power by 2010. 10 percent by 2010: Kaya natin ito!
I think Funding climate is harmful to environment. But it is impossible to stop funding, because the purpose of firm is to make a profit. They never give up funding. But we should inform the fact that ADB support dirty energy project.I think it is all thing which we can do.

I think this problem face conflicts between two different view points like two sides of coin. As stop supporting fossil fuel, it can prevent from dirty energy projects that cause climate change and inflict harm to people. Development of future energy is essential, too. On the other hand, investment to the uncertainty of future energy isn’t a solution for energy project. To support our energy expense, there are no other things like fossil fuel.
In my opinion, what the most important procedure is proper regulation and adjustment which can cover such both sides. As legitimating about the proper amount of fossil fuel, it could prevent from waste our limited energy. At the same time, we can develop our energy-expended life for not only our life but also descendant’s by continuous investment.

I think that it is impossble to prevent the firm from Funding Climate Change. Because the purpose of the firm it to make a profit. But we should inform the facts which ADB support fossil fuel and dirty energy project. So I'm proud of you who write the article.

it is some estimated but we should think about that. plus , ADB should reduce their investment to cause climate changes. The earth is for us so they should protect their earth.
However, we should think about this. If we should stop all kind of bad things to earth, people that it is all of means of living can't maintain their life. so we should think about means of altanative first.
