Climate Change



Climate Change

Climate change, also called global warming, refers to the rise in average surface temperatures on Earth. An overwhelming scientific consensus maintains that climate change is due primarily to the human use of fossil fuels, which releases carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air. The gases trap heat within the atmosphere, which can have a range of effects on ecosystems, including rising sea levels, severe weather events, and droughts that render landscapes more susceptible to wildfires.

The Problem

We're facing the biggest environmental challenges our generation has ever seen. No matter what we're passionate about, something we care about will be affected by climate change. Over the years, we've changed the balance of our planet by living beyond our means. We've burnt huge amounts of fossil fuels (such as coal, oil, gas), bred huge amounts of methane- producing livestock and cut down vast swathes of forest, which would naturally absorb carbon dioxide from the air.

The Causes

- Trapped Carbon dioxide - Burning of Fossil Fuel - Cutting down Forest

The Effect

A rise of just 2°c would mean:

- The economic impact of poor sanitation and hygiene cost the Nigerian economy the equivalent of almost 1.3 per cent of gross domestic product. - Severe storms and floods in many countries, particularly impacting coastal areas, with droughts also affecting many parts of the world - Seas become more acidic, coral and krill die, food chains are destroyed - Little or no Arctic sea ice in summer – which not only means less habitat for polar bears, but also means the global climate warms faster, as there is less polar ice to reflect sunlight

Our Activities

- Provide safe water in schools and localities

- Build to toilets and hand-washing facilities in schools and communities to reduce open defecation - Create awareness on the proper use of these facilities

- Educate people on healthy tips for sanitation and hygiene

- Advocate for the construction of toilets in strategic public places, schools and communities

- Severe storms and floods in many countries, particularly impacting coastal areas, with droughts also affecting many parts of the world

- Seas become more acidic, coral and krill die, food chains are destroyed

- Little or no Arctic sea ice in summer – which not only means less habitat for polar bears, but also means the global climate warms faster, as there is less polar ice to reflect sunlight

Beyond 2°c:

- Rainforests dying

- Unthinkable loss of ancient ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica, causing dramatic sea level rises

- Mass displacement of people and widespread species loss and extinction

Our Activities

- Tree Planting Campaign

- Create awareness on the need to plant more trees

- Sensitize people on the dangers associated with climate change

- Educate and train people on the alternative use of sustainable energy.
