Lately, I've noticed the news about our environment getting worse. One of you pmed me about my safety(thanks for the concerns btw) after a hurricane hit our country. To tell you the truth, we never had hurricanes hitting at a high 195 kph. So far, this year, 3 hurricanes have hit the highest signal warning compared to last year's.
My deepest condolence to those who perished during the hurricanes.
Some of you may have heard about the worst oil spill in the history of the Philippines. The oil that was removed from Guimaras again sunk near Misamis Oriental. So this is a double trouble.
I also have concerns with Australia after reading the news that the Oz has been in drought for a long time. Sorry to hear that, Aussies.
Let's just hope we still have time to save Mother Nature before it's too late.
I dont know blue, global warming is happening pretty rapidly. All the things we are trying to do now may not be enough.If things were to get fixed it would take a long time. Just think if it wasnt for global warming all the things that are happening wouldnt be. I just feel bad for all the animals and creatures that live in the cold weather regions are are losing thier homes and habitat. I bet with time most of them will be endangered.
I have been reading today's newspaper and an update regarding the environment by Geneva stated that the moderate "El Nino" is happening. It causes heavy rainfall in the East Africa and parts of South Asia. And then the drought has been affecting Australia.
By the way, as an update for the flash floods and mudflow in Albay, Philippines, the rainfall was measured by 466 millimeters. That alone is the heaviest rainfall in our history. The last time it happened was 40 yrs ago in 1967. Hurricane "Reming"(international-"Durian") is by the far the 3rd most dangerous hurricane in history. So far, more than 500 people are still missing and we have been hearing reports of worldwide donations and contributions especially from US.:) Thanks to the countries worldwide who have extend their contributions and condolences.:)
