Greta Thunberg becomes famous when she passionately heads a global youth-based movement against climate change. Their “climate strike” catches attention worldwide. This amazes Bongbong Marcos to the verge of becoming speechless. The efforts of the 17-year-old Thunberg is just remarkable. She started protesting outside Sweden’s parliament in 2018. She joins protesters on College Green again in the UK.

The Youth’s Plea on Climate Change

With the advent of climate strike around the world where the world’s youth have called to account previous generations for the harm WE have brought to their patrimony, our legacy, our Earth.

The Philippines is 4th in the World

The 2015 report of the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction is Marcos’ reference. The Philippines is fourth in the world among countries hit by the highest number of disasters. This is due to climate change. The super-typhoon Yolanda lessons must enable Filipinos to build structures that can withstand natural disasters, suggested Marcos. Typhoons and floods are frequent in the country, he added. He notes that many of the casualties of Yolanda even lost their lives in evacuation centers. Collapsed structures during the super typhoon and storm surge drowning were the culprits.

Improve Disaster Preparedness

Marcos urges all government agencies to improve their disaster preparedness. Distributing relief goods and rescuing people during times of natural calamities must be efficient enough. The Archdiocese of Cebu echoes is in line with this idea. They are working with partners to equip rescue transport systems and evacuation centers in communities with solar panels in case other fuels can’t work under extreme conditions. These efforts must be done nationwide.

Bongbong Marcos recognizes the efforts of 17-year-old climate change activist, Greta Thunberg. She spearheads a global youth-based movement by doing a “climate strike.” This is outside Sweden’s parliament in 2018. She plans to join protesters on College Green again soon in the UK. As he narrates his support to the passionate youth, Marcos can’t help but choked as he grasps for words to describe their intensive initiatives.

The Youth’s Plea on Climate Change

With the advent of climate strike around the world where the world’s youth have called to account previous generations for the harm WE have brought to their patrimony, our legacy, our Earth.

Philippines is a Disaster Country

Marcos earlier cites the 2015 report of the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction. It says that the Philippines is the fourth in the world among countries hit by the highest number of disasters due to climate change. He also suggests that the lessons from super-typhoon Yolanda must enable Filipinos to build structures that can withstand natural disasters. Typhoons and floods are frequent in the country. He notes that many of the casualties of Yolanda perished in evacuation centers. They collapsed due to strong winds or were submerged in the storm surge.

Disaster Preparedness

Marcos urges all government agencies to improve their preparedness to launch relief and rescue operations during times of natural calamities. The Archdiocese of Cebu echoes this plea during their recent Climate Emergency Convention recently. They work with partners to equip rescue transport systems and evacuation centers with solar panels in case other fuels can’t work under extreme conditions.

Incorporate Climate Change Efforts into the Minds of the Young Ones


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Scary movies stressing out the proximity of climate changes are very disturbing. It is good to know that experts in this field are brainstorming on what the world can do to ease the problem. Devastation is already happening but even if we are doing measures for the next generations in line, it is still worth it. Know this recent climate change effort:

COMDEV week highlighted awareness of Climate Change and Community Empowerment

By: Arellano University

The office for Community Development celebrated its ComDev Week on Dec. 11 – 15, 2013 with the twin objectives; to increase the awareness and knowledge of the student youth  regarding the effects of climate change; and, to motivate them towards taking action in protecting the environment through engaging in the outreach and extension programs of the university.  http://www.arellano.edu.ph/news-and-articles/comdev-week-highlighted-awareness-climate-change-and-community-empowerment

Perhaps it is also important to point our children to the importance of getting involved with the preservation of natural resources. Often, the young ones are already loaded with school, domestic and social responsibilities. Then when they reached adulthood, they will be so overwhelmed with how to make money. What about community service that includes world preservation in general? Well, we can always start at home by doing the simplest thing of segregating our garbage and so much more as time goes by!

Monsters of the Sea

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Various unidentified creatures are continuously appearing in social media nowadays. Shall we be scared or just embrace their existence? Let’s face it. The world is filled with creations that remained undiscovered until at the present time. They might look strange but not because they are ugly – just different to what we already see. Since they don’t have names yet, they are referred to as sea monsters: Watch this:

Unidentified Creature

The ocean is actually larger than the land so, if we already see funny looking human beings – let’s be prepared to see more strange looking life forms from the sea. Climate change may have driven them to land but let’s welcome them as habitats of the earth also. So, when it’s our turn to be displaced to the vast ocean, they will do the same. Nothing is certain here on earth so changes are paramount – let’s just be ready and kind at all times!

Worst Disasters Expected in Poor Countries after Philippines


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
All countries were blown away after knowing the aftermath of the Storm Surge in the Philippines when Typhoon Yolanda with the International name Haiyan devastated the Eastern region of the country. However, this will not be the worst nightmare that we can expect. Philippines is only 40 years behind in Climate Change preparation – compared to poorer countries which is 100 years back.

World’s Poorest Nations 100 Years behind Richest on Climate Change

By: SI Admin

It will take the world’s poorest countries more than one century just to reach the level of climate change readiness that the richest countries already enjoy, according to data released Dec. 12 by the 2013 University of Notre Dame Global Adaptation Index (ND-GAIN).  http://www.sustainableindustries.com/articles/2013/12/world%E2%80%99s-poorest-nations-100-years-behind-richest-climate-change-prep


Just imagine that Philippines was divided politically after the disaster up to this time of writing because of factional ways of leadership during the relief operations. Imagine what will happen to the poorest of the poor when a calamity of this magnitude strikes. Everyone will be affected because the desperate ones will end up looting the ones who have. This chaos will be unimaginable so before that happens, let’s empower the ones who do not have the slightest opportunity to be prepared not just for the calamity but for living sustainably in a daily basis.
