Rising temperatures endangering millions in Africafrom MARIA MACHARIA in Nairobi, KenyaNAIROBI, (CAJ News) – RISING temperatures are feared to push millions of people in Africa into poverty and hunger unless governments take fast action. Without urgent action to reduce global emissions, the occurrence of climate shocks and stresses in the Africa region are expected to get worsen. “A hotter Africa is a hungrier Africa,” said Apollos Nwafor, Pan Africa Director of Oxfam International, the humanitarian group. On 5 July this year, Africa registered its hottest reliable record temperature in Ouargla, northern Algeria when 51,3°C was recorded. The Algeria’s hottest temperatures caused by global warming were described as worst.
