Plastic bottles are one of the leading causes of environmental degradation. Find out how you should deal with these hazards before they ruin our planet!
In my previous flood safety tips, I have repeatedly provided ways on how to protect one’s assets, homes, and loved ones from flooding. However, some people keep on asking me if I won’t directly address the root causes of climate change.

There’s one feature of the dry season that most Filipinos do not like. What is it? It’s the thunderstorm!
In my previous flood safety tip, I talked about the beginning of the Philippines’ dry season. Since the Philippines is a tropical country, it does not go through the cycle of four seasons normally enjoyed in Western countries. Here, dry season is enough to bask in the glow of the morning sun!
However, there’s one feature of the dry season that most Filipinos do not like. Even those foreign nationals who have been living here for a long time (like me!) can vouch that the Philippines’ dry season is not all fun.

Flood specialists like me have been waiting for this announcement – the Philippines’ dry season has officially begun!
The Philippines goes through two seasons within a year. These two seasons are commonly called dry and wet season. Seasons like spring, winter, and fall do not occur in the Philippines.

In our previous flood safety tip, we talked about the United Nations’ (UN) concern on climate change and the Paris Agreement.
I understand that putting climate change in a global context is something that needs further elaboration. What I mean is, how sure are we that everyone understands the global effort to stop climate change?
Are we aware that the United Nations are busy working to prevent the rise of global temperature? Are we even aware that the Paris Agreement on Climate Change is just a part of the larger effort to save the earth?

As a flood safety specialist, there’s one news that shocked me and nearly ruined my week. United Nations Secretary-General Antònio Guterres said that it might be too late to save the world from the devastating effects of climate change.
In spite of our efforts to reverse global warming, it might be too late to do such. With or without measures to stop global warming, the Arctic ice will soon melt. | photo credits to https://fee.org
I know what I said was a bit vague. Let me go down into the details.
In a report published on the official website of United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Guterres said that, literally, the whole mankind should do something now to hold the reins of climate change. Otherwise, its effect would be almost irreversible.
