Climates are changing and global warming is a real issue. It takes no scientist or genius to realize our Earth is changing at a faster rate than we can fathom. Just look at the hot/cold wave, floods, and typhoons around us.
- Hurricane Katrina was the costliest hurricanes in U.S history and caused economic losses of approximately $125 billion
- Tropical Storm Nock-ten inundated the provinces of Northern, North-eastern and Central Thailand. Even Bangkok wasn't spared as part of the capital was under water too. The cost of the flooding resulted in a total of 815 deaths
- Typhoon Ketsana was the second most devastating tropical cyclone in the 2009 Pacific typhoon season, with a damage of $1.09 billion and 747 deaths
No one should underestimate the impact of the forces of nature. In order to have a future, we must protect our future. A little action goes a long way. Today is the day I decided to ditch my car and go to work with my Wheelie and public transport. Feel so good to be making a small contribution and fulfilling my role as a global citizen!!
