“The MET Service has a presentation on climate change and impacts on climate change on different events around the country.

Reporter:  “I suppose some may not accept it, but it is just about a fact now that many parts are affected by events in the atmosphere that cause polarized caps and so on and so forth”

Dennis Gonguez:  “In my presentation, there  I will show that our climate is warming with the longest records we have at the International Airport.  Our temperatures are increasing.  As a consequence, we could expect some of the weather patents as the years go by”.
