Global Warming Issues in Bohol
« on: January 27, 2010, 05:11:26 PM »
Vice Gov. Julius Herrera had strongly commended municipalities that have enacted local measures to mitigate the increasing global warming.

Herrera earlier said that a project, such as power plants utilizing husks, could help the growing concern over disposal that can harm the environment when husks decomposed because they released greenhouse gases that contribute air pollution.

He cited a finding that if rice husks are burned they discharge unfiltered smoke and toxic carbon dioxide that can help deplete the ozone layer.

Herrera added that it’s about time to tap our resources while there is still time to save our environment.

He expressed elation that municipalities are now enacting measures banning the burning of biodegradable materials such as rice stalks and husks as these could contribute to the global warming.

Leading the way is the Sangguniang Bayan of Dagohoy town that has strictly prohibited the burning of what it considers as non-biodegradables.

Municipal Ordinance No. 2009-100 sternly bans the “burning of plastics, all kinds of cellophanes, all kinds of sachets and garbage within the territorial jurisdiction” of the municipality.

The municipal lawmakers of this town have imposed penalties under Municipal Ordinance No. 2009-100 to the violators.

Section 3 of said Ordinance provides that a fine of P500 for the violation for first offense and P1,000 and P1,500 for second and third offenses, respectively, or “both imprisonment of five days and fine at the discretion of the court.”

The environmental measure was approved on December 29, 2009 by Mayor Germinio C. Relampagos and signed by Vice-mayor Ma. Shirley A. Amodia and certified by municipal secretary Gloria O. Abregana.

Mountains of rice husks which are very abundant in the province could be an alternative source of electric if the government will only harness and give it a priority.

Based on the study, rice husk power plants can generate between 1.5 and 10 megawatts capacity and the technology is viable energy source as used in Japan

The Department of Agriculture said in a study that rice husks can produce as much as 20% of the paddy production.

“In 2004, about 3.14 million metric tons of rice husks were generated of the total 14 million MT of rice produce and this translates to 1,600 mega-watt-hour of potential energy that can light a highly urbanized city for a year.” (RVO)

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
