Yes you're right. The five most devastating typhoons ever recorded in the Philippines have occurred since 1990. LINK Spot a trend?

You should move there. Land will be cheap. When the climate stabilises, you can sell at a nice fat profit.

walter, the philippines have been getting hit regulary by typhoons since records began, and will hit regulary by typhoons in the forseable future. there has been no discernable change in the frequency of typhoons hitting the philippines. this is why the ipcc report does not link global warming with increasing typhoon strength, go and read the ipcc wg1 report chapter 2

Lordy, we are very lucky in this country and yet partly responsible for what is happening in other vulnerable countries. Doesn't seem fair. I'm pretty sure we'd be taking more action if that was happening here.

Latest comment: MyName, I'm not sure which country you mean when you say "in this country". If you're referring to the USA, then I'm not sure what action would be taken given that they're still building wooden houses in Tornado Alley.
