MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Like many tropical countries, the Philippines has all but two seasons, the wet and dry seasons. No four seasons like the rest of planet Earth.
But blame it on climate change, winter has arrived in the country.
No need to look very far than the set of CNN Philippines ‘Newsnight,’ where news reader Pia Hontiveros was seen on January 18 shivering in the cold. Luckily, the producers of the show were able to quickly install a fireplace to warm the studio.
Expect activist Greta Thunberg to start citing this Philippine phenomenon to argue for the urgent need to address climate change.
