Nigeria's Climate Change

Changes Being Done

Australia's Similar Story

Hope For the Future

According to "General Overview of Climate Change Impacts in Nigeria", the text states "The results show that while temperature increased by 1.1°C for the 105 years, rainfall decreased by 81 mm" (Akpodiogaga-a & Odjugo, 2010). This statement means that the impact of climate change is evidently seen in the lack of precipitation and harsher temperatures.

Measures, such as carbon taxing, on larger companies have been made in order to halt the rise in green house gasses. On top of that, there has been a push for greener, smarter energy in the region (Ogbo et al., 2013).

Another area experiencing the same form of desertification is Australia's indigenous regions. The whole interior landmass is dry and spreading to the outer region. As the precipitation amounts lower here too, the country becomes more inhabitable. Globally, it contributes to the rising temperature of the world by having another large landmass producing less oxygen. Furthermore, with less fertile land, the agricultural impact Australia has on the world becomes lessened. This change results in more food shortages worldwide (Yip, 2013) .
