1 On July 15, 26-year-old physicist, Karen Ibasco, was crowned Miss Philippines-Earth 2017.
On the changes she wants to see in national environmental policies: "In terms of environmental policies, everyone is experiencing climate change. The whole world is experiencing climate change and I’m just grateful that the Philippines signed the Paris Treaty. What I want to see is to pass a carbon tax. In that way, we would invest in renewable energy to help our world be a better place, greener and habitable for the whole humanity."
Miss Earth 2017 will be held in Mall of Asia this November. We're rooting for you, Karen! [PEP]
