Typhoons are common natural disasters. I don't think climate change is a big reason for that. If you look back, in 1800's too, typhoons and floods are more frequent. But the intensity now,these typhoons occur is due to climate change. Yes, as you said, earth should be protected and the people should take care of using polluting things like plastics, vehicles, etc.,

It is also because we have lesser trees today that can hold more water in the soil. Typhoons at the past whenever passes our mountain will have a lesser intensity when it landed.

I recycle and reuse on a regular basis. My best way to give back though is donating to conserve the land. The Nature Conservancy works around the world and to this organization I do give regularly.

About every two weeks we turn in cans and glass bottles to a recycler for cash in our pocket. We actually get back a fair amount for what we spend on the products.

Joining in some organization that promotes and have advocacy in saving and protecting nature is a nice step and way to help.This organization really helps a lot on saving nature.But let us not take for granted what they're doing,we should do our part too,even on our own little ways.

Indeed the typhoons were really made very devastating experiences to those people directly affected. But, people are still hard headed, they don't even realize that the reason of all these were our carelessness and being so selfish. The change must start now at this moment, not tomorrow nor next week. We must be united not just in helping those affected persons but in starting the change from our very own self, the best would be begin in proper segregation of garbages at home, cleaning the drainage canals, planting more trees and avoid using plastic materials as much as we could. Be active in participating into clean up drive and at the same time into tree planting. We must not also forget to remind our government officials on their task to lead us in battling this challenge concerning our Mother Earth. They should be strict in implementing rule and regulations regarding proper waste management and the should start a campaign regarding reforestation and restoring our mountains, seas and river. Lets work hand in hand for the better and brighter future.

Unity and cooperation are badly needed to solve this issue.Prevention is better than cured.We should start in our own little ways.There are laws and regulations implementing right now but some people don't follow it.Concern and awareness is must for our campaign to succeed.

There are some ways to help our earth from the destruction. I just wanted to discus only one way about how to help our earth is to not litter anywhere we want. We must maintain an environmentally friendly attitude by disposing the waste on the provided place. In the era where I live, there are nearly 75 percent of people seemingly not care about their waste, they just disposed their light and plastic stuff on an open era, so when the wind blows strongly, those plastic stuff got blown by and that made sick of them. I just don't know why people just did it. I thought we deserved to get a calamity from earth and I am not sorry for that, because we did not show good attitude in keeping our mother earth cleaned.

I got a big headache understanding your statements, that's why I didn't go through it. But I want to save the mother earth, really. To save our mother earth, in my own little way, I have to refrain using plastic materials. Like here in the Philippines, there's a massive campaign regarding the use of paper bags in replacement to the usual plastic bags use in the market.

And aside from growing trees. We should be responsible enough not to throw garbage everywhere. Also, we should stop craving for latest technology like cellphones, laptops, computers and the like. That's also one of the many reasons why our climate has changed. And if it's not really necessary, don't buy cars or if you have one, make sure it is earth friendly so you'll not cause air pollution. :)

Yeah we should reduce pollutions cause it really a big factor in climate change that we are experiencing right now.I think we should use electronic vehicles like what I've watched on tv last night.I think it will lessen the pollution.
