    2. •Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. There is no other intermediary. May Jesus Bless you, trust Him, give your life – and He will take care of it :pray Convert yourself and believe in the Gospel – Romans 10 8-10 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,”[a](A) that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: 9 If you declare(B) with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,”(C) and believe(D) in your heart that God raised him from the dead,(E) you will be saved.(F) 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

    3. The ability to respond Biological Climate Change is far reaching to match up and its Health Crisis


    5. Drill for fresh water. Invest in PVC pipes to carry the water to villages, towns and homes. Your government need to invest it money and stop begin for white people to help you. Do it yourself. There's plenty of fresh water underground. AFRICAN'S CAN DO FOR SELF. You may need to hire contractors to do the work but it can be done.

    6. Français Anglais

      pour ce qui est des maisons dans le monde, il n'y a pas de raison de ne pas en avoir parce que vous pouvez rammasser du sable partout sur la terre et du klinker de vous même et le transformer en matériaux de construstion qui n'est pas toujours le ciment et ce matiaux peut être plus fin ou moins fin que le ciment, ceci sans dépenser un sous. l'idéal serait d'envoyer un garçon de la famille en école de maçonnerie et le tour est joué Ebangue Eyoum Arnold Emmanuel Master II en comptabilité et finance/Ingénierie Financière Cameroun

      when it comes to houses in the world, there is no reason not to have them because you can pick up sand all over the earth and klinker from yourself and turn it into building materials that don't. is not always cement and this material can be thinner or thinner than cement, without spending a penny. the ideal would be to send a boy of the family to masonry school and voila Ebangue Eyoum Arnold Emmanuel Master II in Accounting and Finance / Financial Engineering Cameroon

    7. Talk all you guys want. No one cares and no one will listen

    8. Africans need to come together and help one another

    9. Leaders want than they take credit for it…protect your ideas.

    10. African people please don't be persuaded to follow western societies down the toilet. Be like Russia or China, the earth is ripe for you to make your mark

    11. Africa always echoing problems of the western world, and they ignore their own problems. Is climate change real? Of course it is – the very definition of the word climate means it changes over time and nature alone understands the pattern over a long period that exceeds the period of the recordable history we have had so far. The west is not concerned with continuous colonialism Africa still suffers, why we have been unable to pull ourselves up by the boot strings as they say because they will never let africa be. Humanity is a disgrace.

    12. Nothing will change…however she said world leaders and I saw Buhari?? LMAOOOO 🤣🤣🤣 our own Buhari in Nigeria? Among World leaders?? Please guys 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    13. 💙👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

    14. Sadly nothing will change . I've lost hope in Humanity. As long as War, Famine, Greed and Extermination of Forest and Oceans continue to plague the Earth there is no hope for Climate Change

    15. New world order propaganda garbage !!!

    16. Action is needed with immediate response,
