A new law in the Philippines may require every student in elementary school, high school and college to plant 10 trees before they graduate.
The legislation, titled the “Graduation Legacy for the Environmental Act,” was approved on May 15 in the House of Representatives and hopes to combat global climate change while teaching future generations to be more eco-friendly. However, the bill must be proposed and passed in the Senate to take effect, according to Popular Science.
United States President Donald Trump was recently one-upped on Twitter by an 18-year-old student from India on the topic of climate change.
Instead of bashing Trump on his views on climate change, the student, Astha Sarmah, who is from Jorhat in Assam, educated the president about weather and climate in a rather well-spoken manner.
