With the people of Philippines

"Superstorm Haiyan is a climate nightmare -- carbon pollution is driving more frequent and intense storms which are devastating vulnerable communities. New realities require new politics, I urge you to stop the sad tradition of feet-dragging on commitments to cut pollution, and breaking promises on finance. We must acknowledge the new climate reality and put forward a new system to help us manage the risks and deal with the losses to which we cannot adjust. I call on you to stand with the Filipino people by taking major steps forward on these issues at the Warsaw climate talks".Yeb.S

Daily details of catastroph and the prevalent conditions after the Haiyan is well known to all of us. As the people struggle shall we unite  with them in mind and heart, feel and pray for  concern of the neighbours, well wishers and political leaders.

Let no effort be spared. May the affected people be restored to normalcy.

Natural calamities are abounding. We are responsible for this.Let us unitedly seek for ways to control and  do the needful for the generations to come.
