Blog Action Day 2009 Topic: Climate Change (http://www.blogactionday.org/)
I am continuing my tradition in helping contribute to Global Awareness through the power of bloggers uniting and writing my blog post.
This years Topic is Climate Change.
What is Climate Change?
Climate is the long-term average of a region's weather events lumped together. Climate change represents a change in these long-term weather patterns. They can become warmer or colder. Annual amounts of rainfall or snowfall can increase or decrease.

Let's make this clear, regardless of what Political Side you are associated with, there is no need to make this years topic a Political Topic. This is not Global Warming or some hidden experiment the government is doing, this my friends are real problems on how Weather can play a vital role in our lives.
Climate Change is a severe issue that has affected many people over the years.
Most recently is the Phillipine's Flooding that happened this year, affected over 300,000 people and caused the capital to be 80% underwater!
Lets Be Pro-Active in Climate Change
Not only were the Phillipines not prepared and ready for this type of natural disaster but too many countries including the United States which was shown in Hurricane Katrina shows that the world needs to be better prepared for the ongoing Climate Changes.
This is not a call to action to determine if there is Global Warming or using tax money to fund energy efficient products, this is a call to action to have more awareness in dealing with our Climate Changes regardless of Political Agenda.
These issues are real and instead of looking too deep into these issues lets focus on ways to improve our Earth:
- Help contribute to repairs of disasters
- Help volunteer
- Spread Awareness
- Be part of the solution and not the problem
