Climate change is an enormous environmental crisis. Global warming has caused a rise of the average temperature that has resulted in the melting of polar ice, an increase of the mean sea level, more extreme weather conditions and natural disasters such as droughts, floods, and hurricanes. We have been witnessing Global Warming first hand here in Southern Africa with the recent drought due to lack of rainfall. This is a real problem that needs real solutions. Economists are predicting a further decrease in the South African Rand’s value, an increase in food pricing and other daunting economic issues to hit South Africa hard in 2016.
Economists and Scientists have also pointed out the correlation between Global Warming and the current moral and political challenges across the globe. Environmental activists and leaders involved in the fight against climate change such as Prince Charles, Bill Gates and John Kerry have voiced their concerns on this issue and are doing everything in their power to bring the attention to these issues that it deserves.
