LP: Pagbabago [change]

at the shores of Cagbalete Island

Napapansin mo ba ang mga pagbabago sa iyong kapaligiran? Ang mga lugar na dating di binabaha, ngayon lumulubog na sa tubig kahit sa konting ulan lang. Ang dating malalapad na baybayin, kapiraso na lang ang natitira dahil sa soil erosion bunga ng mabilis na pagtaas ng dagat at maling pamamahala at abuso ng ating coastal resources. Katulad ng mga punong ito sa dalampasigan ng Cagbalete Island---kinain na ng dagat ang pampang at ang mga ugat ay halos wala ng makapitan. Baka balang araw pati tayo ay wala na rin makakapitan kapag patuloy na tumaas ang tubig ng mga karagatan dala ng climate change. Di ko alam kung kakayanin ng powers natin ang susunod na great flood.

Did you notice the changes in your environment? The places that never experienced flooding in the past are now under water after a moderate downpour. The wide shores of our childhood are almost gone due to soil erosion brought about by rapid rise of sea level and mismanagement and abuse of coastal resources. Like these trees at the shores of Cagbalete Island, the roots could barely hold on to the soil---and a few years from now, these trees would be gone, too. If the sea levels continue to rise, and we don't do the right thing to save this planet, then we would be like these trees, holding on but slowly losing our grip. I don't know if we'd survive the next great flood.

Sana ang batang ito ay hindi magiging illegal logger paglaki n'ya kundi magiging earth warrior. Sa bawat pang-aabuso natin sa ating kapaligiran, tandaan natin na hindi natin minana ang planetang ito sa ating mga ninuno kundihiniram lang n atin sa ating mga anak.

Hopefully this boy would grow up to be an earth warrior rather than becoming an illegal logger. Each time we abuse our environment, be reminded that "we do not inherit this planet from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children".

isa talaga s amalaking dahilan ang pagbabagong yan kaya ang bansa natin ay unti unti ng lumulubog sa tubig.

Nature has such a beautiful way of presenting itself sometime. Very interesting. I do hope that we are able to implement the changes required for mother planet to sustain. We definately need cleaner air and to become less dependant of oil. Here on our Gulf Coast we are personally experiencing the tragedy of the persuit of more oil. We have oil on our white pristine beaches as of last night.

Very nice shots. I really like those gnarled tree branches and the photo with the young boy, just beautiful.

I agree that we are borrowing the earth from our children. I wish more people were as wise as you are!

Uy, Cagbalete at Caramoan, hanggang pangarap na lang namin yan, hirap umalis kapag walang maiwan sa bahay :( Yan ang isang nais namin mabago pero parang malabo.

Sana di na maulit ang pagbaha last year, wishful thinking

I am a nature lover at gusto ko pang magliwaliw sa park compare sa mall. Masakit sa akin pagmay-makita akong kahoy or bundok na napinsala dahil sa mga illegal loggers. Ewan ko ba kung kailan yan malilipol ang ganyang mga klaseng tao. Sana sa bagong presidente sa Pilipinas wala na masyadong illegal logging. Happy LP!

Hay oo nga... isa ang Climate Change sa pagbabagong kaya nating pigilan at dapat nating aksyunan.

Thanks for a very thoughtful post accompanied by some wonderful pictures. I hope we are raising a large number of earth warriors.

Nice post Luna, sana we can be educated to save the earth.

Psst, I have a 100 photos of butterflies that I took last Saturday, hehehehe!

Nauubos na ang mga puno sa atin. YUng lugar namin sa Laguna, dati mapuno ngayon puro bahayan na. Ano ang kapalit? Grabeng alikabok at polusyon!
