World Environment Day: Raise your voice not the sea level this 5th of June, 2014

Climate change issues, sea level rising. Impact of pollution and destructive activities of man.
There are lots of ways we can help our environment, to ensure healthy goods and services it can afford.
One major problem we have in Nigeria is the practice of dumping wastes in our surrounding water bodies and drainage systems. It is heinous, the environment is living, this practice has high degree of adverse effect which turns round to affect man, the defaulter. It results in blockages of water draining channels expediting localized flooding with areas of high water tables more vulnerable.
Proper waste disposal is realistic in our neighbourhoods. just a little planning and commitment to locating the right places to dump our wastes is what we need to ensure clean and healthy environment. Very importantly for those living in riverine areas, that water surrounding you can actually harbour and produce fish for your household if you can take a second look at the possibility, instead of facilitating breeding grounds for mosquitoes and diseases. All hands on deck, moms! youths! please mobilize your household or do you think otherwise? We can talk about it, post your comments. Still visit for more info on environment awareness programs.
