Pinoys Abuse Nature Like Nobody’s Business And Then Cry Like Babies When She Lashes Out

I remember someone saying that a lot of Filipinos are “asar-talo”. This translates to a person who loves to make fun of others but cry bloody murder when the tables are turned on him and given a taste of his own medicine. I don’t know about you but I’ve met my share of that kind of people. […]

Why coal-minded Duterte is on the wrong side of history

In about 4 billion years from now, the Sun will leave the main sequence and will evolve into a Red Giant. While this stellar evolution is a spectacular cosmic phenomenon, it marks as well the complete annihilation of life on Earth. But long before that, in only about half a billion years, “the Sun gets […]

Homosexuality and Global Warming: Are they Science-based or Something Else?

Nothing is quite as amusing as waking up to the curses, insults, and angry voices from the uber-liberals reacting to a piece that challenges the narrative they hold sacred. Good Lord, the angry voices of these folks do sound like a bunch of jackals with hemorrhoids! So what did I do now? Ah yes, I […]

While it is important to be mindful of […]

Why the Kidapawan massacre is a climate issue

The Kidapawan massacre and the Syrian refugee crisis demonstrate an interesting parallel. According to European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, a torrent of climate refugees will be a new challenge if world leaders fail to forge an ambitious, robust, and binding global climate deal in Paris held in December 2015. He emphasized that climate change is […]

Trump and Duterte: The rise of hugely-popular demagogues in America and its Philippine colony

It is hardly surprising that demagogues have come to dominate national Americana politics on both sides of the globe. Funny enough, two such popular demagogues happen to be making waves on the East and West both in bastions of American values — in the United States itself where anti-immigrant Republican candidate Donald Trump is ruling […]

Who Among the 2016 Candidates will Prioritize Climate Issues?

Clearly my most recent article hit a delicate nerve (or to put it colloquially, “aimed for the butthurt”), as revealed by the numerous replies left by visitors who took the time to skim through it. Most of the comments have only proven my point: instead of rebutting the various other points which I offered in […]
