EPA deputy quits, cites Lai pressure

Chan first tendered his resignation after Lin stepped down and was replaced by Lai in September last year, citing what he said was Lai’s frequent defiance of democratic principles during his time as Tainan mayor, but was persuaded by Tsai to stay.
Amending the Air Pollution Control Act (空氣污染防制法) and the Environmental Impact Assessment Act (環境影響評估法) were the primary reasons he agreed to join the Cabinet, Chan wrote on Facebook yesterday morning.
However, over the past year, officials have not been allowed to thoroughly discuss policies at Executive Yuan meetings, he wrote.
While his goals have not been fully realized, the credibility of the EIA system is being undermined by pressure from Lai, which made him feel ashamed for not being able to accomplish his duties and led to his decision to leave, he wrote.

US genocide in the Philippines

What brought me to the conclusion that the Philippines genocide did happen is the figures in the history books which simply do not add up. The History books that were written by the victors claim somewhere between 200,000 to 300,000 died in that period, which is still a large number considering the population of the Philippines at the time was no more than 9 million.

要解決氣候問題,我們應該減少熱量的產生

颱風越來越嚴重。 台灣應該做什麼? 我們應該減少熱量的產生。 如果公共汽車是免費的,那麼汽車和摩托車就更少了。

Flooding slams Taiwan. [eng] 廣泛的洪水襲擊台灣數週

TAIPEI —

Taiwan's government has apologized three times over deadly floods since August 23 and doubled up restoration work to try to stop storm damage from becoming an issue in pivotal elections this year.
Taiwan can only offer more development and more cars, because it is controlled by profit-seekers. If there was any justice, buses would be free and car and motorcycle use would be discouraged.

台灣應該不收取公共汽車的費用,減少汽車和摩托車
