Calling On Everyone Everywhere

My name is Mr. Richard Inyamkume from Benue State of Nigeria. A graduate of Philosophy from the prestigious Pontifical Urbaniana University, Rome.

I picked interest in environmental matters since my secondary school days and performed exceedingly well in Geography. After graduation, I have been working with Veritas University Abuja (Nigeria's Catholic University). I joined a small nongovernmental organization Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Initiative (CCMAI) working in Nigeria to increase awareness about the impact of global warming and how to mitigate it's impact. I have held series of campaigns on climate change in schools, churches, universities and communities in Nigeria. 

Climate change impact on Communities is quite huge but a large number of the population in Nigeria may be unaware. We need to team up with viable solutions that will halt the fire that is already burning up our entire globe. If we fail to act now, I am sure that food and water supplies may be badly affected and this may result to Species extinction. We don't need to wait for someone else to tell our sad stories. We need to act now and act very fast to save our generation and generations to come from the scourge of hunger and starvation.  I am a climate advocate and I'm calling on all youth, children, men and women to join me in raising the climate sign.
