Abstract

The climate change debate has moved from being an illusion to being a serious environmental challenge for modern governments especially in developing societies. Even though, countries in the Global North have been the culprit and those in the Global South have been the victims, trading blames back and forth will only aggravate the damage already done. Facing frontally the anthropogenic factors that have triggered the crisis in Nigeria, for instance, will go a long way in stemming the byzantine effects already generated. This chapter has broadened the climate change discourse by conceptua ·"sing the phenomenon, identifying its effects on the global and domestic environments and mooted solutions to arrest the menace. The chapter concludes that until the anthropogenic factors that generate and sustain the climate change menace are addressed, the present generation of Nigerians may not be adequately protected while there may be nothing to preserve for the future generations.
