Here, bikers pass over a bridge in Pavia, the municipality that was caught by surprise by the devastation of typhoon Frank last year, showing that the Philippines is most vulnerable and least prepared for coping with climate change. This bridge and the other one in the background were totally submerged during Frank's onslaught.Locations:Iloilo-Iloilo City-Philippines-Southeast AsiaDate:29 Aug, 2009Credit:© Greenpeace / Raphael RiosMaximum size:3000px X 1998pxKeywords:Actions and protests-Banners-Bicycles-Bridges-Climate (campaign title)-Climate change impacts-Day-KWCI (GPI)-Men-Outdoors-Public engagement-Small group of people-WomenShoot:Climate Bike Ride in Iloilo in PhilippinesGreenpeace issued a warning as civil society and environment groups worldwide mark the 100-day countdown to the anticipated Copenhagen Climate Summit in December. To mark the occasion, Greenpeace organized the Iloilo launch of “YoU turn the Earth”—a series of high profile public activities to raise awareness on climate change and its solutions. The event in Iloilo’s capital highlights the province’s vulnerability to the worst onslaught of climate change, particularly massive floods caused by extreme weather such as Iloilo’s devastating experience with Typhoon Frank last year.
