Relatively humidity is high in the Philippines. A high amount of moisture in the air
makes hot temperatures feel hotter. This quantity of moisture is due to different
factors -the extraordinary evaporation from the seas (or bodies of water) that
surrounds the country on all sides, to the different prevailing winds in the different
seasons of the year, and finally, to the abundant rains so common in the tropical
country.

Based PAGASA-DOST Climatr Monitoring Advisories issued this 05 August


2015, moderate El Nio conditions continue to persist across the equatorial
Pacific Ocean. Leading climate models suggest that it may intensify from
moderate to strong El Nio in the coming months (last quarter of 2015) and
may last until early 2016. . . PAGASA - DOST Climate Monitoring Advisory,

Based on the article from NASA - Earth Observatory , The world is getting
warmer. Whether the cause is human activity or natural variabilityand the
preponderance of evidence says its humansthermometer readings all
around the world have risen steadily since the beginning of the Industrial
Revolution. According to an ongoing temperature analysis conducted by
scientists at NASAs Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), the average
global temperature on Earth has increased by about 0.8 Celsius (1.4
Fahrenheit) since 1880. Two-thirds of the warming has occurred since 1975,
at a rate of roughly 0.15-0.20C per decade. The global temperature has
increased by 0.8 degree Celsius this year 2015. Thus, affecting all the
countries in the world particularly in the Tropical Region including
Philippines.1
DEMOGRAPHIC PROFILE
Population
Based on the Philippine Statistics Authority - Figures, the growth in Philippine
population is attributed mainly to the excess of births over deaths. Like any
other developing country, Philippines has a high birth rate and a gradually
declining mortality rate. International migration, on the other hand, is
relatively nil. Data on population and vital evens such as live births, deaths,
fetal deaths, and marriages are taken from population censuses,
demographic surveys, and civil registration. - NASA, Earth Observatory,
