Finally, climate change law is passed!

It took nature in the form of devastating successive typhoons that Republic Act No. 9729 otherwise known as the "Climate Change Act of 2009" was signed last Friday into law by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
Coincidence or not, the law will hopefully consolidate government efforts, quite anemic and lacking in the aftermath of recent typhoons, in dealing with the impact of extreme weather conditions.
What politics failed to decisively pass for so long was simply rushed into law because of nature's destructive ways.
