A member of a Greenpeace expedition team wades through a cornfield badly affected by a severe drought that has hit the Southern Philippines town of Surallah,North Cotabato. Greenpeace linked rising global temperatures and climate change to the onset of one of the worst droughts to have struck the Philippines, Thailand, and Cambodia in recent memory. Scientists from NASA recently warned that a weak El Nino combined with the impact of increasing greenhouse gas emissions from the use of fossil fuels such coal could make 2005 the hottest year since global temperature was recorded in the 1800s.
