Taxi Wisdom: The Environment

Posted on Updated on


I went out on a grocery run this weekend, and the taxi I was in had the aircon set to mid-range temperature. Politely, I asked the driver to adjust the aircon since it was so hellishly hot outside.

He immediately lowered the thermostat, saying, “It’s really hot ma’am, because of the global warning.”

I thought I was hearing things, so I verified, “Because of what, manong?

Driver (loudly, since I seem to be hard of hearing): “Global warning ma’am, because of the hole we have in the sky. That’s why it’s so hot everyday.”

Me: “Ah, okay.”

Alright then, I have been warned.

    But of course!

    Obviously what is more surprising is the facr that the taxi driver was so knowledgeable.

    Hello guys!

    The taxi drivers here are very up to date since they listen to the news on the radio all day. Sometimes though, something gets lost in the airwaves.

    Lee, welcome back. Diin ka halin man?

    he’s kinda right, though. We have global warning to blame for the extreme weather we are all experiencing. In some parts of the US, grabe cold. And here in Europe, it’s too hot!

    Hey AnP! Hot sa Europe? Weather is getting weird everywhere.. in the US there was snow late in April, when it should be start of spring already. What would the earth be like 10 years from now, I wonder?
