The Effects of Climate Change

By Mmabore Mogashoa

It is September in Limpopo, South Africa. Some days feel like it is still winter, very cold, or it is August because its windy and dusty is everywhere. Some days are extremely hot, and the temperatures keep rising.

The climate has changed because of the effects of what is done in the country, now we experience climate change. Today is the last day of September but the land is still dry. Despite the few hours of rain in parts of Limpopo, it is not enough for us, the animals and our land. Many animals are very thin and dying of hunger as a result.

Agriculture is in trouble as more and more of our plants are dying. The climate change is not good for our planet and everything that lives on earth. Rivers have dried up from mining and the lack of rain. Is time to stand up for climate change and save our heritage.
