End of the World?
Perhaps or maybe it shall be happened. But we do not know and no one could say as to when would be the end of the world. This is the hottest news in the past few weeks all over the world that some groups predicted to happen last May 21, 2011. In May 24, 2011, the same group admitted that they were short with their interpretation on some verses in the Bible. Instead, they again predicted to happen on October 21, 2011. - Latest News.
Almost 4 hours on the road from Malaybalay City, right after lunch, we then headed to the Pantaron Range or the protected forest areas of this place. When we are about to ascend, I then observed that there is indeed a hidden paradise in this Barangay Kalagangan of San Fernando, Bukidnon. The guide then asked to take some pictures of this hidden paradise. I then whispered on how great is our creator, giving us this paradise, a place where we would spent the rest of our life, and then later, some people will just destroy the nature by cutting trees without even care for reforestation.
Depletion of forest areas by cutting trees without reforestation? This is the cry of other organizations. We have to protect our Watersheds. Pantaron Mountain Ranges is one of the declared protected areas in Bukidnon along with Mt. Kitanglad and the Mt. Kalatungan.
Endangering if not properly handled by the people who have been authorized to protect and secure the place. Cutting of trees will be rampant in a few days from now, thus, this will deplete also our WATER RESOURCES because of the provision of the highway linking Bukidnon and Davao Norte Provinces.
Development is not bad, if political will is there to protect these protected areas. Conversion of lands into Alienable and Disposable in order to provide more production areas should not ignore the fact that along the boundaries of the awarded land there should be spaces which will be planted to trees. But what was happen instead? I will leave this question to you.
As I observed in con touring all over the fringes of Bukidnon, people are now aware of about the worsening condition of Mother Earth. We can now feel the brimming heat of the sun. Hence, we have to continue with our advocacy. An advocacy to continue to plant trees for the benefit of our children and their children.
We can even see that some parts of the Mountains were now being utilized as production areas even though that some of these were still part of the protected areas.
|The Protected Areas- The Pantaron Mountain Ranges-is it really protected?|
Can you see that some portion of these protected areas is now denuded.
|Our Water, Our Life, intended for us and for Our Children|
|Crystal Clear water from this Mountain.|
|Some evidences of denuded portion of the mountain|
|Longest Solar Dryer ever existed while still not fully utilize as highway|
The End of the World lies in our hands if we continue ignoring the cry of some organizations whose advocacy is to protect our Water Sheds. Let us put aside our worldly desire or interest to some extent that we cannot be of blame about the worsening condition of our Mother Earth. We still want to see that the earth is still blue. My son's internet screen name is blue earth. At the age of six, he invented that internet screen name.
Even a little child, cannot speak what he feels, but the cry of his heart is really that obvious about the worsening condition of our nature. If the spelling of HEART dropped down the letter "R", it will becomes HEAT. That would be the time that I will conclude about the End of the World.
