Desmond MajekodunmiThe Nigerian Government has been advised to empower the department in charge of climate change in order to meet the challenges that rising temperature presents.

Speaking on Channels Television, experts say it is time Nigeria started looking at its survival strategies.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its third major climate assessment on Sunday April 13, rounding out a process that began in September and plays out every seven years.

International Negotiator on Climate Change and Sustainable Development, Lekan Fadina and Environmental Activist, Desmond Majekodunmi were guests of Saturday morning programme, Sunrise on Channels Television to discuss issues of climate change and its dangers to mankind, especially to Nigeria.

The IPCC reports indicate that sharp greenhouse gas emissions cuts worldwide need to begin, with a 40 percent to 70 percent reduction by 2050, to avert the worst effects of climate change.

The experts revealed that the world was running out of time, and Nigeria must do something towards taking measures on Climate Change because its life was at risk.
