Climate change is here
OUR immediate neighbours like Lesotho, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and Namibia are already feeling the heat brought on by climate change and the continued drought which has resulted in many failed crops.
Our neighbours have declared national emergencies and if no solution is found, 50 million people in Africa could face starvation.
We had our fair share of failed crops last year, due to the devastating drought that ravaged this country, forcing many farmers out of business.
Perhaps it is time we took these warning signals seriously and changed our habits to help curb climate change.
Start by implementing small steps like reducing our energy usage and using water sparingly.
While cycling to work puts many off due to the dangers associated withJoburg’s busy roads, there is public transport with upgraded bus routes in most Joburg neighbourhoods.
Let’s all do our part to save our planet.
