Weather Talk

"How's the weather in HK?" Dom asked me earlier this eve.
I told him it was crap.


It has been thunderstorms and rains. Places are flooded, trees snapped, and its just plain crazy. Its not even the typhoon yet and its already horrendous. He told me that Shenzhen is just as bad. All the place he liked (to have his meals) are all flooded.

"Mother Nature is angry" he said.
"Her sons are naughty that's why." I replied.
"They make an utter mess and they refuse to clean up. They simply push the blame and the responsibilty to clean up to one another." I shared my thoughts with him. He agreed.


"Many scientists say greenhouse gases are responsible for a warming Earth and, if not reduced, could lead to massive storms, floods, heat waves, droughts and a rise in sea levels. US President George W. Bush is expected to outline some adjustments to national climate-change policy in his State of the Union speech next week, but retain his opposition to mandatory limits on greenhouse gas emissions. " ~quoted from PlanetArk

" As Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain, a proponent of emissions targets, said in a statement on Nov. 1: "The blunt truth about the politics of climate change is that no country will want to sacrifice its economy in order to meet this challenge....

And the United States - by far the world's largest producer of greenhouse gases - continues to say that emissions targets or requirements would stunt economic growth in both rich and poor nations." ~quoted frm truthout
