Climate warning

Malawians are on high alert as they face the looming threat of an extreme heatwave, set to push temperatures to a scorch

Authorities are urging citizens to exercise caution by avoiding alcohol and caffeine, as these beverages can lead to dehydration in such extreme conditions. The country's meteorological service has issued a warning, indicating that while high temperatures are not uncommon for October, they are expected to become both more frequent and severe due to the impacts of climate change. https://www.africanews.com/2023/10/12/malawi-heatwave-warning-issued-as-temperatures-set-to-soar/

    Extreme heat waves are striking so many regions in other countries.What does this tell us?? It might continue getting worse if something is not done urgently.Most people in third world countries cannot afford AC when such heats strike.

      It's not just Malawi; many regions are experiencing more extreme heatwaves. We must act now to limit global warming and protect vulnerable communities from these dangerous conditions.

              I hope that the Malawian government and people will be able to weather this heatwave safely, and that they will continue to work to reduce their vulnerability to climate change in the future.

                What other proof do we need to prove that climate change is real and we need to act?

                        @joseph_githinji Imagine how small kids (new borns) get agitated because of heat and there is nothing you can do other than drawing them a bath.It is frustrating.
