Africa is the continent which is facing terrible consequences due to the climate change. According to the article written by Claudia ten Have of United Nations University, published in July 06th 2008, titled “Africa and Climate Change”, many deleterious changes from climate change is to be expected for the future. According to Claudia, “Africa is set to experience:
- Significant increases in temperature by 2010, particularly in the Sahel and part of southern Africa;
- Dramatic decreases in precipitation, declining by more than 20% compared to levels 20 years ago; and
- More frequent and intense tropical storms—parts of the continent will see a 20% increase in cyclone activity.”
It is urgent that the leaders from each part of the world contribute in the amelioration of greenhouse gases.
