BlackSoot cause drastic climate change effect in portharcourt

Port Harcourt reaps the whirlwind of climate change with the huge damage caused by wind storms. These windstorms are expected to increase drastically, according to our research and analysis.

Even the minimum global warming now expected – just 1.5C – is projected to raise the cost of windstorm destruction by more than a third in this part of the country. 

If climate change heats the world even further, broken roofs, uprooted trees, fallen billboards and damaged buildings are likely to increase by over 50% across the Portharcourt metropolis.

This is because the main storms that barrel in off the Atlantic are expected to move their track southwards as the planet warms, a phenomenon linked to the rapid melting being seen in the Arctic.
