Climate Change Strikes Again on ‘The Correspondents’

Even the most guarded and cared for creations of humanity are not exempted from the effects of climate change.

This Tuesday (Mar 30) on “The Correspondents,” Abner Mercado revisits the Timbac Cave to see the effects of the sun’s strong heat to the mummies. He will also explore the destruction brought about by the hot weather to one of the wonders of the world – the Banaue Rice Terraces.

Cordillera is known to be home to many indigenous people, collectively called Igorots. They are famous for their creation and preservation of the Banaue Rice Terraces and the mummies created from their traditional death rituals. However, due to the changing climate and the summer season, the sun produces intense heat that destroys a lot of things in our environment.
