Waaa this is tough hehehe. Cos even if you implement something we still suffer from drout and el nino in general. it the nature. Its too late for us to recover because we already abuse our environment. if there is a way perhaps we could let all the people to plant trees that would help I supposed because trees gives moisture, and shelter.

How about you Sir mel what would you do? hehe pinasa ba namanang tanong lol thanks for the post.

Hi Shy,
Wala na nga siguro tayong magagawa although we can soften the effects of El Nino in our lives. Matuto siguro tayong magtipid nang tubig at kuryente. Matuto na rin siguro tayong pahalagahan ang kalikasan at hindi abusuhin ito. But most of all, we can all pray that God deliver us from our own follies. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Arvin,
Tama ka diyan. Marami pang masamang epektpo ang El Nino sa buhay natin. Salamat sa dalaw at komento. Pagpalain ka nang Diyos sa tuwina.

The first picture is so scary! Sa amin pag El Nino ang mga tao from the mountain will come down sa city kasi wala naman silang magawa doon. I hope naman the government will really locked up the people who do illegal logging pero para namang ang may-ari nang mga illegal logging na yan eh may good connection sa goberno kaka-imbyerna sila lang ang yayaman ang mga tao ang nagkakahirap. Will pray to God for HIS mercy.

this is a hard question...golly gosh gosh....ehehhehe!

in my opinion...el nino is a natural phenomenon,and I think we can't really do anything to implement and get rid of it...only God has the power to stop this horrible weather....I just hope the weather will go back to normal.

very interesting topic kuya Mel....:)

Hi Dhemz,
Yes we are powerless to stop El Nino but we can exert efforts to temper its ill effects on our lives. We can economize in the use of scant water resources by not using the hose in cleaning our cars and in watering our lawn and garden. We can instead use pail and tabo for this purpose. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Kim,
Sorry I did not see your name immediately. What you said is true as far as flooding is concerned. But having more trees will also contribute to the lessening of the effects of El Nino since trees exudes oxygen that cleans the air. It is just unfortunate that we get the worse of both situations- strong typhoons alternated by long dry spell like the El Nino. Thanks for the visit and comments. God bless you always. BTW, I think your blog is infected by virus because every time I visit it, my browser always crash and the computer reverts back to start mode.

Dhemz said...

my point ka kuyaMel...those are good ideas...kaya lang marami kasing taong pabaya eh...ang kulang lang eh cooperation....this is a good campaign to support with...sana may mga taong mag implement nito...at masundan nang iba.... :)

salamat po sa dalaw at commentos....ehehehe! andito me ulit....:)

hahhaa...speaking of sibling rivalry....yep! we had actually...when we were kids...pero ala na ngayon...may kanya-kanya na kasi kaming buhay....:)

Hi Dhemz,
Nakakalungkot talaga na maski na may El Nino ay may mga tao pa ring walang pakialam sa mga masasamang epekto nito. Hanggang hindi personal na nararanasan ang perwisyo sa sarili ay hindi pa sila kikilos at tutulong sa pagtitipid nang paggamit nang tubig. Mabuti naman at magkakasundo na kayo nang mga kapatid mo. Salamat sa dalaw at God bless you all always.

I second the motion with Shydub.. ganun din ang sagot ko and yung mga sinabi mo sir mel.. In my opinion din, i dont think only God can stop whatever we are experiencing right now, i mean HE can but He won't (to teach us). He gave us natural resources to use and take care but we abused it instead.. its really sad talaga na most people di pa rin alam ang dahilan ng global warming at ng mga epekto nito sa tao =( only we, can do something about it. Conserve water, tipid sa kuryente.. kaya nga bumili ako ng walis tambo kasi gusto ko na talaga magtipid sa kuryente. Sana nga lahat ng mga sasakyan maging hybrid na at sana affordable.. kung pwedi nga lang bisikleta na lang eh, kagaya ng china.

Hi Bambie dear,
Alam mo kasi bukod duon sa physical abuse na ginawa nang tao ay meron pa ring spiritual abuse na nagawa rin nang tao kaya marami tayong nararanasang mga ecological disasters. Kung baga sa laymen's language ay dumaranas tayo nang collective negative karma nang mga pangaabusong nagawa natin. Only a countrary spiritual force can counteract that. That's where our prayers will become effective. Ini erase nito ang anumang negative karma na nakaamba sa ating lahat through God's grace and power. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
