Global warming and other bad environmental stuff has taken another crippling blow following the crowning of Miss Earth in Manila. The ShadowLands has been following this important enviro-event closely.
The crystal crown has gone to Miss Philippines. The winner, who was previously passed over as a contestant for Miss World, will be celebrating her enviro-consciousness and lording it over those who thought she wasn't good enough, with business class air tickets to the United States.
A close runner up, Miss Tanzania was catapulted into second place after answering the compulsory question. Asked what advice she would give to Barack Obama, she said he should give some serious thought to addressing environmental issues and unemployment among the youths. Mmmh, food for thought, Mr Obama.
The 80 or so other contestants and their entourages will be jetting home with memories to match their gigantic fucking suitcases.
UPDATE: Due to popular demand, the winner and leading environmentalist, and winner of the bikini competition, Miss Mexico.
