More rains because of global warming

That statement comes from the Philippines' top climate official next to the President, the Vice chairman of the Climate Change Commission (CCC), Heherson Alvarez. In a news report yesterday, Brace for La Niña, local gov’ts told, a DA official and Mr. Alvarez were quoted,

“La Niña is expected around September and October,” said Dr. Esteban Godilano of the DA’s Planning and Policy Officer. “According to studies, it may still be extended even up to February,” he noted.

Climate Change Commission chief Heherson Alvarez said the Philippines is not prepared for extreme weather brought by global warming.

That's climate alarmism, plain and simple. There is El Nino and prolonged drought, because of "man-made warming". There is La Nina and prolonged rains and cooling, because of "man-made warming".

Here's the sea surface temperature (SST) record as of August 18, 2010. Note the blue color -- very cold ocean water -- moving from east to west pacific, straight to SouthEast Asia -- Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and neighboring countries.

And this is the chart of the SST anomaly as of August 18, 2010. Global SST anomaly is not yet negative, just heading there, but Nino region 3.5 (East Pacific, South America) is already negative since last July or late June.
