In late 2013, Cardinal Tagle called the bishops together and, in consultation with Kelvin Rodolfo, retired University of Illinois professor of earth and environmental sciences, and Fernando Siringan, a marine scientist, the bishops concluded that reclamation in Manila Bay is "a very bad idea."

That was what happened in Roxas Boulevard every eight seconds or so," Filipino-American geologist and environmental scientist Kelvin Rodolfo explained in an interview with ANC.
This is why he is against the 300-hectare reclamation development of Manila Bay in Pasay City.
"It's absolutely the worst thing to do. You put people in harm's way by doing that," said Rodolfo, who is also a professor emeritus of the University of Illinois.
He explained that the reclamation is like modifying the terrain in the area.
According to Rodolfo, a disaster is a combination of two: the people under threat and the threat itself.
But Rodolfo, who earlier warned the government of the disaster coming from the lahar discharged by Mount Pinatubo, said it is also wrong to use "tsunami" to describe storm surges.
"While people know what tsunami is like, we could have generated unnecessary panic...and you would have also killed people in panic," he pointed out.
Rodolfo believes that the weather authorities were not wanting in announcing the storm surges prior to Yolanda's landfall. "There were warnings, some listened, some did not," he said.

"You'd better be scared," said Kelvin Rodolfo of Viroqua, Wis., professor emeritus of earth and environmental science at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Rodolfo, an avowed opponent of fracking and frac sand mining, said neither federal nor state rules provide any protection against fine, airborne crystalline silica, a known cause of silicosis, a serious respiratory disease.
