Signos: Banta ng Nagbabagong Klima (Signs: Threat of Climate Change)

Global warming is a worldwide problem. The devastating effect is a millions times higher than a terrorist attack. This environmental crisis puts the lives of millions at risk.

To spread the worldwide (environment) awareness, Philippines particularly GMA's Public Affairs presents Signos (Fatal Signs), Philippine television’s first full-length documentary on what is considered the most pressing environmental issue today.

Signos: Banta ng Nagbabagong Klima (Signs: Threat of Climate Change) is airing tonight after Ful Haus on GMA Channel 7 in the Philippines ( Sunday April 20, 2008).
Narrated by advocate, Richard Gutierrez.

Award-winning journalists, Howie Severino, Maki Pulido and Raffy Tima travel to different parts of the country to prove that the impact of climate change reaches far beyond the glaciers of the Polar Regions. Severino visits Bicol, where a 150-meter fault line and intensifying typhoons threaten to bury towns with landslides. Pulido discovers a town in La Union that has dwindled to more than half of its original size. In El Nido, Palawan, Tima ventures underwater to investigate a phenomenon called coral bleaching.

To provide the most in-depth report, Signos brings together scientists from local and international institutions, including Filipino NASA Senior Research Scientist and Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Josefino Comiso, and experts from the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Marine Science Institute, Greenpeace, and World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF), and other climate change experts. Signos brings Filipino viewers a comprehensive look on climate change, its causes, effects, and the measures that must be taken to prevent its disastrous consequences.
