The Problem and Its Background
The Philippines is now on the edge of great struggle on keeping up on climate change. Not enough technologies, corrupted funds for problems related to climate changes, ignorant citizens who don 't care about the effects of these Global phenomena’s. What lies on this country? How could we survive? Would it be the last of our kind?
Climate change is already happening and represents one of the greatest environments, social and economic threats facing the earth. Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather over periods of time that range from decades to million of years. It can be a change in the average weather or a change in the distribution of weather events around an average. It also refers to the extreme variations of weather brought about by global warming. Climate change may be limited to a specific region, or may occur across the whole Earth. Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of Earth’s surface.
The Earth’s climate patterns have never been entirely predictable, and storms, drought, floods and famine have affected humanity throughout history. The Earth’s climate patterns create and sustain the natural environment on which humans and all other species depend. The Earth’s climate is influenced by average global temperature and is sensitive to changes in temperature. The Earth has a natural temperature control system that keeps the planet warm enough to sustain life, yet prevents it from over heating. The Earth is definitely warming. Signals of changing climates, including increasing trends in temperature, sea level rise and extreme climate events are already evident in the Philippines. And as the warming continuous, the effects will become more dangerous. Climate change will bring water shortages and decreases agricultural productivity and food security. Furthermore, it would affect the world 's population, but poor tropical countries will be hit
