Demand for water in Namibia is expected to exceed supply by 2015 in this driest country of sub-Saharan Africa. A report from the country’s Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Institute states, “Recent analysis of the country's climate data, which stretches over a hundred years, shows an observable increase in temperature of approximately one to 1.2 degrees Celsius. In recent years, hot temperatures are getting hotter, hot days of above 35 degrees Celsius are becoming more frequent and the number of cold nights decreasing." Namibian farmers have already experienced the rainy season starting later and ending earlier, thus threatening food supply.
Our gratitude, Namibian researchers for documenting these severe effects of global warming. We pray our planetary community will quickly adopt the clearly water-conserving and carbon-free plant-based diet to cool the earth and to ensure enough water for all.
