It’s April Fools Day but the Food Crisis in Mindanao is No Joke!

Climate change is real. Al Gore has been talking about it for years now. We didn’t listen or we just didn’t care.

As early as November 2014, PAGASA has already released dry condition advisory in the Philippines. We didn’t listen or we just didn’t care.

Several cities in Mindanao are now under state of calamity due to El Nino. People are going hungry. Farmers protested. Chaos. Injury. Death. Are we listening? Do we even care?

Government office candidates are campaigning for the nearing election. Promising to address issues, to help the poor, to feed the hungry. We know they don’t really listen and a lot of them don’t care.

It’s our call. We have to start listening to the cries of nature. We wouldn’t be where we are now if only we cared more for the environment.
