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.http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/front/archives/2018/10/09/2003702006
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.

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.britsinthephilippines

TAIPEI —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.
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.

But banning new production in the tropics would only shift the problem elsewhere as consumer demand for vegetable oil soars, the report cautioned."When you consider the disastrous impacts of palm oil on biodiversity from a global perspective, there are no simple solutions," said IUCN Director General Inger Andersen."Half the world's population uses palm oil in food, and if we ban or boycott it, other more land-hungry oils will likely take its place."Rapeseed, soy and sunflowers require up to nine times as much land to produce an equivalent amount of oil.All told, 193 animals and plants threatened with extinction on the IUCN's Red List of endangered species were found to have been harmed by the cash crop.Monoculture palm oil plantations sustain only a small fraction of the plant and animal life found in the tropical forests they supplant.In Borneo—the world's largest palm oil producing region, with 8.3 million hectares planted at of 2016—half the rainforests lost from 2005 to 2015 were destroyed by palm oil development.
