Here’s a Proof that Global Warming is Affecting our Weather


Posted by Andreas Klippe | March 5, 2018

Here’s an interesting report from CBC News, posted online on February 14, 2018.

If further proof is needed to convince you that climate change is real, you need to go to Saskatchewan, Canada, where global warming has increased the changes from flooding to drought conditions.

Why you should Avoid Using Plastic Bottles


Posted by Andreas Klippe | May 1, 2018

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.

Since people are asking me of my opinion about the root causes of climate change, I’ll give one short comprehensive answer — we should all ditch the plastic bottle.

What are thunderstorms? Should you be bothered about them?


Posted by Andreas Klippe | April 17, 2018

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.

It’s official! Dry season has come to PH!

Flood specialists like me have been waiting for this announcement – the Philippines’ dry season has officially begun!

two_seasons_philippinesThe 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.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced that the easterlies (wind pattern coming from the east or the Pacific Ocean) has started blowing through the Philippines. It’s a sign of warmer days ahead!

The Global Fight against Climate Change: Know it and Act on it!


Posted by Andreas Klippe | April 6, 2018

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.

melting_of_the_arcticIn 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.
