The conference on Climate Change, held in December last in Paris, was a success, compared to the previous one in Copenhagen.
For the second year in a row the number of typhoons that hit the Philippines, and especially our region (Pangasinan) in 2015, was far less than the long-term average. It seems it has to do with El Nino. But still we have no snow in the Philippines.
I have reported this year on five typhoons, of which two had some impact on our area. Especially the 1524 Koppu/Lando typhoon.
Even in the Netherlands they had the warmest December ever measured since more than a century.
