OP-ED CARTOONS: Editor’s Choice – Money laundering .



Emergency, Code Red, COVID-19


“Emergency” and “Code Red” are words that can provoke worry and anxiety. But amid the COVID-19 scare gripping not only the Philippines but the world, it is comforting that President Rodrigo Duterte has declared a public health emergency after the Department of Health issued a Code Red alert level this weekend.

 Disappearing beaches

The Philippines may be small in land area, but with over 7,100 islands, the country has one of the most extensive coastlines in the world. This makes the archipelago among the most vulnerable to the impact of global warming.

Last week, researchers warned that sea level rise and climate change are on track to wipe out half the world’s beaches by 2100. Even with a drastic reduction in fossil fuel pollution – the biggest driver of global warming – the researchers warned in the journal Nature Climate Change that over a third of the sandy shorelines around the planet would still disappear.

China-Japan ties must stay the course

The postponement of the China-Japan summit scheduled for next month was not unanticipated, given the coronavirus epidemic afflicting both countries. Nevertheless, it is a disappointment. Since 2012, when the Japanese government nationalised the uninhabited Senkaku Islands, called Diaoyu by China, Sino-Japanese relations have trodden a rocky path. Mr Shinzo Abe’s second stint as Japan’s prime minister, which began soon after the islands were taken over, hardened attitudes in Beijing. He was seen as a revisionist all too willing to play cat’s paw for the United States’ attempts to check China’s rise. Mr Abe’s enthusiastic support for the now-defunct Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement idea that emerged from the Obama administration’s “rebalance” to Asia, and which pointedly excluded China, fuelled the perception. A lot has changed in international relations since and the now-cancelled summit would have reflected that.
