Since the Super Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines, many people went missing while others are dead. Their homes were demolished and food became scarce. With the donations that's happening across the world, many would think that such donations are helping the victims of the typhoon. Well think again. The Phillipine government is helping the victims of the typhoon. But they are also selling goods such as bread and milk to victims at a discounted price. It seems they are more concerned about the economic currency than the people.
The unemployment rate suspiciously fell sharply right before the 2012 presidential election; now the facts have been revealed, the numbers were manipulated.

On Friday November 1, 2013, President Obama order that the government must put " effort to boost preparation in state and local communities for the impact of global warming." Natural disaster are affecting communities, our natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health throughout the United States.
One of President Obama goal is to reduce the use of U.S. greenhouse gas emission by seventeenth percent by the year of 2020.
With the government working with the states and local communities , and Environmental Protection Agencies to regulate strictly "on coal-burning power plants." I personally am glad that President Obama recognized the impact of global warming on the nations, and is taking action now to avoid problem in the future before it is too late.
