Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today, and even more tomorrow. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is likely to surpass 3 degrees centigrade this century, with the poorest and most vulnerable people being affected the most.

I am aware of environmental issues and the thing that I really support most is going green.Lawrence Baraka, Bag Designer Kenya
Solar energy, biogas, using biogas in our homes, the stopping of cutting trees, if we reduce that then I believe we can really do something with our country but we have to go green.
