Global warming is real. Ensure you keep your environment clean at all times – Lagos Commissioner for Environment

The Lagos state Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, has warned residents of the state to ensure they keep their environment clean at all times as Global warming is real.

In a post shared on social media, Wahab shared videos of flash flooding in Miami, Texas, Italy and other places and warned that climate change is here.

Wahab went on to state that the earth is warming, causing erratic weather patterns and rising sea levels which is now translating to heavier rainfall, more powerful storms, and a growing threat to coastal communities.

He wrote;

The whispers are gone. Climate change is here, and the water is at our doors. From Mumbai to Miami, from Dubai to Dublin, from Argentina to Australia, Toronto to Texas, cities around the world are facing a new reality – a reality of ferocious flash floods and towering tsunamis.

 

The science is clear. Our planet is warming, causing erratic weather patterns and rising sea levels. This translates to heavier rainfall, more powerful storms, and a growing threat to coastal communities. We’ve seen it recently, haven’t we?! The heart-wrenching images of entire neighborhoods underwater, the desperate struggle for survival against the unforgiving current.

 

Closer to home, here in Lagos, we stand at a crossroad. We are a vibrant city, a center of commerce and culture. But we are also vulnerable. The rising sea level threatens our very foundation.

 

Now is the time to act. We need robust flood defenses, and a collective commitment to sustainable environmental practices. We must protect our infrastructure, our homes, and most importantly, our people.

 

Global warming is real. Ensure you keep your environment clean at all times and do not engage in any activity that can hinder the free flow of water.
