Floods, landslides hit Samar, Leyte

THREE children were killed by the landslide that struck Saint Bernard in Southern Leyte on Sunday as a result of the continuous rain that swept through some parts of the Visayas and the whole of Caraga region since New Year’s Day, officials said...

In Surigao del Norte acting Gov. Carlos Egay Jr. ordered the suspension of classes in elementary and high school owing to the continuous rains.

In Surigao del Sur the rains caused the Tago River to overflow, submerging the towns of San Miguel and Tago. The concrete fence surrounding the capitol building collapsed because of the swift current.

The Philippines' two season has wet months from June to October and dry months from November to May. It can be wet up to about mid-November, but generally, November to February are "dry but cold" months. Now we have heavy rains in the middle to the soouthern parts of the country until early January at least.

The warming fanatics have no concept of climate cycles of warming-cooling-warming-cooling. They have no concept of "global cooling" to ever happen as more CO2 is released into the atmosphere as there are more cars, more buses, more airplanes and boats, more malls and offices, more houses and schools, are added every year.

For them, there is only "unequivocal global warming and climate change". So that when there is prolonged drought and bad El Nino, it is due to "man-made warming." When there is prolonged rains and snow, bad La Nina, it is also due to "man-made warming." Whichever way the weather and climate goes, it's due to "man-made warming" and thus, there should be more government environmental regulations, more energy taxation, more climate bureaucracies to be created, more global climate junkets.

Terrible global warming.
