They have four, got two.

They got four seasons---winter, spring,summer and fall; here in the Philippines, we got two--dry and wet. But this year, it is not usual season we have come to experience. Dry season that is really dry due to El Niño phenomenon and the wet season, wherein rain have poured so hard. Having our area flooded once a year--for years now, it has become normal scenery, but this year, water have come inside...five times. Three of it happened in just 5 days and what was surpising is that, there was no tropical storm, just a "habagat" or moonsoon. With this big change, i know it has something to do with climate change.

We become accustomed to what is normal for us, and forget about the rest of the world. in one of my jobs a co worker came. He had grown up here, in Kansas, but had lived in the Philippines for two years. He returned in winter and he could never feel warm. We need friends to open our eyes to how different the world is.

Yes indeed, climate change is real. But I saw a documentary about how climate shaped the planet. And what we are experiencing these days, happened millions of years ago. The cycle of birth and rebirth . Extreme heat to extreme cold and life thrive in between..So maybe life on earth is close to the end.. but it won't be on our time ... I lived and worked there in the Philippines nearly 35 years ago and remember the inconvenience rainy season brings.. I also remember how it was during dry season..But yes it is different now than it used to as I see on the news from there. And whenever I go back, I perspire a lot.. I have yet to experience what it's like there now during rainy season ..
