  1. Asking questions are truly nice thing if you are not understanding
    anything fully, however this paragraph gives fastidious understanding yet.

  2. Hi this is kind of off off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a log soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    In our country, Indonesia,The climate is changing now. Last time we have rainy season in September until December and dry season from January to August. This change is caused by air pollution. We know that a lot of industries in the world are generating waste gases resulting from burning fuel including coal, fuel oil,gases, wood etc.the quantity of those waste gases getting higher and higher parallel with increasing industrial activities. Talking about rainy season, right now we have rain almost every day. Heavy rain sometime is making problem. The example of this is Jakarta city, capitol city of Indonesia. When rain fall too long and litle bit heavy, in several area of the city got flooding. Water can be more than 1 metre depth. A lot of houses, offices and other building sink.This occures every year. The governoor, head of province can not solve the problem up to now. Ok, I will finish this story, next time we will give another story dealing with situation and condition of my country.
