Global warming is definitely a BIG issue in the Philippines.
it is evident already..strong storms due to climate changes, too much heat which causes illness, destruction of the environment and many more... we may not be affected directly but as far as health and weather is concerned... we are one of those who should consider that global warming is a big issue in the Philippines.

As a fellow Filipino, I will have my say here...XD

Er-hem you failed to back up your stances by lacking evidences. Also, global warming isn't much of an issue. For years now in our country, it is very evident that there are lots of typhoons happening. Also, the warmth may also be due to the Philippine's geographic location. And also, when you said that it is not affecting us directly may mean that it is not yet an issue for global warming to be an issue it must attack directly.

Why do people initiate a debate with me and they fail to debate with me? :(

But I just wanna say that my opponent lacked evidence to prove his claims.

global warming is a ridiculous theory made up by a washed up vice president trying to keep his face in history books. anyone who believes the liar, hypocrite, etc. is letting *him* control their irrational fears. people like you are the ones who grant him power over yourselves.

How much sea-level rise do you think the Philippines could have before there is trouble?
Also, wouldn't more typhoons (great jets of wind) be an issue? These will increase with GW.

Wind and water issues make "Aquajet" seem an ironic name!

if global warming is an issue at all then it is an issue everywhere in the globe, as stated by its definition. Con would have to pro either that global warming isn't real or that the philippines do not exist on this planet.
