“Climate change is the most important environmental issue we have right now in the planet.

I believe that people’s interests play a hand in this problem, because we are talking about investments and businesses and everyone will have his own opinion based on his own personal interest, so if leaders from the world are denying the problem, I really have to stand against them because we do have a problem. We are suffering from climate change and so many people are losing their homes and livelihood. In some way, our generation right now is not like before so we have to compare. It’s a matter of looking back and seeing where we are right now in terms of climate change. We can’t deny what’s true and what’s in there. If we actually see people denying, it’s just about personal interest. That’s it. But me as Miss Earth, I can’t deny it and I have to tell the truth.” -Katherine Espin, Miss Earth 2016

A medical physicist hopes to use her new title as Miss Philippines-Earth to highlight the “science behind climate change.”

Karen Ibasco, 26, bested 39 other aspirants in ceremonies at Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City on Saturday night for the right to represent the Philippines in the global Miss Earth pageant, and to serve as an ambassador for environmental protection.

“Joining Miss Philippines-Earth is representing the scientific community and making the people understand the science behind climate change,” Ibasco told the Inquirer after her coronation.

“I really want to share a message, to tell the people what they can do to save the Earth,” she added.

The Miss Philippines-Earth pageant runs on the platform of environmental protection and its winners, since its inception in 2001, have launched projects that help save the planet.

“I will use my title to continue my advocacy, use it as my platform to reach out to a wider range of audience, different people, as I continue to share my voice when it comes to conservation of energy and embracing renewable energy,” Ibasco said.

During the final round of questions, the five finalists were asked what environmental policies they wanted to change.

Ibasco replied: “Everyone [is] experiencing climate change. I’m just grateful that the Philippines has signed the Paris Treaty. What I want to see is to pass a carbon tax. In that way, we would invest in renewable energy to help our world to be a better place—greener, inhabitable for the whole country.”

Also proclaimed winners were Miss Philippines-Air Kim de Guzman from Olongapo City, Miss Philippines-Water Jessica Marasigan from Caloocan, Miss Philippines-Fire Nellza Bautista from Villanueva, Misamis Oriental, and Miss Philippines-Ecotourism Vanessa Mae Castillo from Lobo, Batangas.

Miss Philippines Earth 2017 is supported by partners: SM Markets, Diamond Hotel (the Official Residence) and Miss Earth Foundation.

She then accused Miss Earth 2016 Katherine Espín as having fake breasts, chin, and nose, and claimed that Miss Earth has lost its credibility by crowning a winner who has undergone cosmetic surgery. The incident was caught on video and was spread on social media which angered the netizens for her misbehavior.

Schweighart voluntarily resigned as Miss Philippines Earth two days after the Miss Earth 2016 pageant, as a response to the controversies surrounding her stint as titleholder, upon meeting Carousel Productions (which holds the Miss Earth pageant) Vice President Lorraine Schuck.
