Perfect Timing: A Doctor Quest To Further Climate Education

Cameroonian University lecturer, Dr. Adrien Djomo launched two books this year on March 22. These books were launched with Queens University of Kingston, Ontario which detail his extensive work in the areas of climate change. The first, titled Climate Change Mitigation. Forest Ecosystems: Measurement And Modelling Of Biomass And Carbon is a 423 page long, “educative” read that is full of statistics and suggestions for positive change. The second book, titled Climate Change: The Earth In The Palm Of Our Hands is a 144 page descriptor for everything related to global warming and overviews the various negative environmental effects that climate change has brought to our planet.

Dr. Djomo notes that he chose the timing for the release of his books based on the positive outcome of the recent Paris Agreement climate change summit. 175 countries signed the agreement to make swift action against global warming. The social awareness of climate change is being realized at its full potential and that brings hope for our planets future. True change is delivered through influential education and Dr. Djomo points out that in order for extensive action to be taken, “decision-makers [need] to realize that climate change is not only a problem of experts, but concerns everybody”.
