sandaling ulan lang nag babaha na agad, what morre kung habagt and bagyo pa. we need to stop illegal logging, illegal mining, stop using of plastic , styro, paper bag.
i think its beyond illegal logging and mining.
sa ibang bansa, kahit maraming puno etc...bumabaha pa din.
basta kung ang rate ng ulan, ay less than yung rate ng pag discard ng water, magbabaha talaga.
its about efficiency of drainage systems.
una, walang efficient drainage system sa loob ng manila. yes binabara ng mga na mention mong styro plastic
etc... ever wondered where the drainage of our fly overs go? street level for a lot of them. sa ibang

imho pinoys should start doing what's realistic and practical. bring the segregation of garbage at home and office. after consuming goods, isegregate. yung mga delata at bote ay hugasan. huwag na gumamit ng plastic bags. etc etc. hindi lang dapat 2 ang basura (recyclable and non recyclable). kung nahulog sa daan, linisin. uwiin ang basura imbes na iiwan lang. sobrang daming pwede gawin ng mga mamamayan. imbes na i asa sa gobyerno. yung mga Chinese firefighters ba umasa sa gov't? nope. now look where they are.
