The 2nd Largest Continent Could Become The World's Life-Boat?

By 2050 One Third of the Earths Population Could be Black and African!

Demography will play a substantial role in the dynamics of climate changes. Climate changes affect many aspects of the living environment, including phenotype and populations of human settlements, food production, and diseases. These Climate changes toward a warmer globe will affect Europe, and Asia more severely than Africa, and nations with centuries of history surviving in extremes of heat.

For example, people living on floodplains, coastlines, or in areas prone to severe storms are more vulnerable to extreme weather. This makes beach front property a fail for future investments as higher ground areas traditionally the habitat of the poor will be in greater demand with each decade.The impacts of climate change include warming temperatures, changes in precipitation, increases in the frequency or intensity of some extreme weather events, and rising sea levels. These impacts threaten our health by affecting the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the weather we experience. especially if you come from nations that primarily rely on imports to feed their citizens.

Africa is often described as the continent most at risk to the negative effects of climate change, both because of the expected change itself and because of the perceived lack of capacity of Africans and their governments to adapt. This perception or narrative couldn't be further from the truth as African nations have survived for millennia in the face of such problems Europe and Asia are neophytes at understanding. Changing to millet crops and growing hemp to aerate and fertilize lands is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to ways African knowledge can increase food security. It is the foreign disdain and haughtiness that should be put aside as Indigenous peoples from many continents are the key to humanity surviving the climate change brought on by the so called progress of the modern age.Today, vast swarms of locusts endanger the food supply of tens of millions, especially in Kenya. Swarms like these haven’t been seen in over 70 years, but they are likely to continue as the Indian Ocean warms, causing more rainfall and warmer temperatures that create ideal breeding conditions for locusts.

In East Africa the West reports, vast swarms of locusts endanger the food supply of tens of millions, especially in Kenya. Although, swarms like these haven’t been seen in over 70 years, but they are likely to continue as the Indian Ocean warms, causing more rainfall and warmer temperatures that create ideal breeding conditions for locusts. In some of the countries affected by the locust swarms, where millions of people already struggle with access to food, citizens are asking why the locusts can’t be turned into food or animal feed.

This is an old strategy used to get food after locusts devastated crops, but things have changed. Currently, outbreaks are managed using chemical insecticides or an insect fungus. This would make the locusts toxic. When they’re swarming, they can be collected in large numbers, and relatively quickly and easily. This can even be done using hands, bags and buckets. From a nutritional point of view, grasshoppers and locusts are excellent sources of protein and other essential nutrients.

But one major factor that must be considered today is the use of chemicals. So it is much better to refrain from using pesticides test samples for presence of poisons and use processed locusts as a compost fertilizer or animal feed rather than a main course. Locusts are protein-rich, and the sheer weight of the biomass means once they are collected and processed, they are an abundant and effective means of enriching soil and animal feed. Some of the Other Ways Africans are leading other nations in dealing head on with climate change are:

  1. A new African Company, The Bug Picture, is an African regenerative agriculture company focused on insects as an alternative protein source, specifically black soldier flies. Now, through funding from the Danida Emergency Fund, the company is now working on a community-based program to harvest the insects and mill them, turning them into protein-rich animal feed and organic fertilizer. The project harvested over 1.3 tons of locusts in just the first half of February,2023.

  2. In Narok County Kenya, 20 schools are actively participating in a locally led tree-planting campaign. The initiative spans 4,800 schools nationwide and establishes seedling farms that provide children with hands-on learning opportunities on nurturing and caring for seedlings. This approach fosters environmental awareness in the younger generation while also providing them with concrete skills and schools with much needed vegetation.

  3. Additionally, Kenya and its partners recognize and actively support the significant role of Indigenous communities in preserving forests. By providing direct grants to selected local non-governmental organizations that will work with Indigenous communities, UNDP aims to encourage local efforts towards forest conservation, thus recognizing their unique knowledge, skills, and perspectives, and building on the experience of those on the frontlines.

  4. In Somalia, engaging academic institutions as strategic partners in climate action is emerging as a key solution to limited technical and institutional capacity. To bridge the capacity gap, Somalia has formed partnerships with three universities – Moud University, Puntland State University (PSU) and SIMAD University -- to implement its National Adaptation Plan (NAP). This collaboration allows the government to tap into the expertise of the universities and outsource the development of essential training and outreach.

  5. Moses West African American inventor of the Atmospheric Water Generator that takes water from the air even in desert conditions has started a foundation to bring this technology to the world. The Moses West Foundation is an innovator in global sustainability, guided by the vision of founder, Moses A. West, that clean water is a fundamental human right. The Foundation's mission is to leverage cutting-edge atmospheric water generation (AWG) technology to provide essential water access, foster community development, and promote environmental responsibility.

  6. “Earth Day Africa is a citizens’ movement across the continent, able to address climate change through teach-ins, cleanups, tree plantings and other events. The events serve as the foundation of the Earth Day movement. Across Africa, activists are empowering the environmental movement that will see the African continent as the world's leader in solving the problems of climate change. Africa has the youngest and ONLY growing populations on the planet but it has many enemies who seek the poison its growth figuratively and literally with vaccines that sterilize, predatory loans, direct military action and funding terrorists groups to destabilize and stop freedom from rising against puppet leaders. Currently Earth Day Africa has team members in 20 sub-Saharan countries and tens of thousands of volunteers and supporters throughout the continent.

Young Africa's determination and unity across borders is sparking a new wave of climate awakened awareness and action across the continent. Despite efforts to silence the majority by old despots the youth of Africa are seeing the worst effects of climate change, facing it head on instead of running to other nations and uniting across borders to fight it.
