I’ve already written an article similar to this but I’m putting this up again because some of us really need to know what’s happening in our sad little country. Just to refresh your memory, here’s the video in question again so you’ll have a better idea why I’m really upset right now. Apparently, a rare dolphin, an endangered species in fact, was found beached somewhere in Quezon City. Local authorities were sent to help the poor creature return to the sea but, before they could get there, it seems that a bunch of dumb locals had busied themselves with slaughtering the innocent dolphin. All authorities had found were the remaining body parts of the dolphin which were relatively fresh which meant that it was fairly recent when a bunch of Pinoy idiots had decided to butcher the hapless cetacean.
Truth be told though, the dolphin wasn’t the sole victim of Pinoy selfishness and stupidity. Not too long ago, fellow GRP writer Kneil Andrews wrote a piece about Pamana, one of the last surviving Philippine eagles in the country. Sadly, Pamana had also been shot and butchered by Pinoy idiots who had nothing better to do than find exotic dishes probably because they suffer from severe erectile dysfunction and baluts can no longer serve as effective aphrodisiacs for them.
Anyway, what’s sad is that no one ever seems to care about the helpless endangered species of the Philippines save perhaps for the few environmentalists in our country. To many of us, the death of endangered species are “no big deal” and, more often than not, we care more about the garbage on our TVs and sappy romance couples like Kathniel, Aldub and whoever the Hell Pastillas Girl is supposed to be with right now. As long as we’re happy, we don’t give a rat’s ass about endangered species and the environment. To Hell with Pamana, the butchered dolphin and the rest of the environment as long as everybody’s happy, eh?
What’s worse is that the indiscriminate killing of animals isn’t the only way that we insult Mother Nature. Many Pinoys, as I’ve said in my previous article, have utterly no respect for nature and her marvels. We litter like there’s no tomorrow, we massacre thousands of fish through illegal fishing methods and we reduce forests to barren wastelands through illegal logging. Then we cry bloody murder when natural disasters hit our country and obliterate our cities, belongings and loved ones.
Since some of you have taken to calling me a “prophet of doom”, I’m going to make my first prophecy here. If we Filipinos continue to disrespect nature as we do right now, then I can assure all of you that the terrible natural disasters will continue to hit the Philippines on a frequent basis. If we continue our callous attitude towards the environment, then Yolanda will just be the tip of the iceberg and that, the next natural disasters will be even stronger and more devastating. And unlike faith-based prophecies, I can prove this through scientific observations.
If you choose not to heed my warnings though, I’ll just pray that you won’t drown when the next flood comes along, get blown away by the wind of the next typhoon or that your house will withstand the next earthquake…
