Global warming and the Nigerian youth.
Yesterday a group of young men and women gathered at the united nations information centre ikoyi lagos to deliberate on issues affecting our climate globally also known as global warming...
Global warming which is the gradual increase in the temperature of the Earth's surface, atmosphere and oceans as a result of greenhouse gases. Carbon dioxide emissions created by burning fossil fuels create a barrier that traps the sun's heat on the Earth causing the planet to warm up, has now become a pressing issue that needs all hands on deck.
Presently webare battling with a 2degree centigrade increase in earth temperature and if we do business as usual (ie: if we continue like this) by 2100 we will have 4 degree centigrade increase that is times 2 of what we are experiencing now.
Ideas on how to reduce this mayhem by 2100 was delibrated upon. calculations and possible conclusions was reached. Families were encouraged to ensure atleast a tree is planted in there compounds.
Certificates were issued after the event..
