Climate change is inevitable. In the continuous strike of calamities in the Philippines, it is becoming more and more usual to expect that what will be next is severe flooding and landslides. Just one day of non-stop rains, many people have been already affected. Homes, infrastructure and fields are already devastated. Sometimes even deaths. Even transportations, classes and operations in works and offices are suspended. How to find a solution in this situation is becoming a mystery, because it is the nature that we are facing off. It is surely not just a problem of one country but a problem globally. Global warming has really an effect on us. Though Philippines is not a major greenhouse gases emitter, what would happen then when the Philippines, as a developing country, regarding its growing economy, urbanization and motorization, starts to rapidly emit gases? What would happen from five to ten years from now? Does the government really can do something about this problem? It is true that every people have a responsibility. But how can the government convince the people, to start to change on their own and be disciplined? It is good to know that there is government agency that addresses this problem in climate change. But I think they should not just focus on implementing solutions, they also have to be aggressive in executing and fulfilling it. What is at stake is the survival of man. How can we manage if much harsher and devastating calamity strikes the Philippines like what have strike other countries?
