Abstract

Climate change is a much anticipated phenomenon that has earned “global attention” status. Its cyclical pattern ‘crept’ upon society and gained a momentum that suddenly has many government debating, projecting, tracking and strategizing in an effort to slow its ‘movement’. This marked the end of preceding epochal changes of climate when the cycles of cooling and warming unfolded slowly. Today, factors responsible for this sudden velocity in climate change ‘stands’ within close proximity yet seems untouchable/unstoppable. This paper does not argue naively that the consequences of this rapid increase in the warming of the earth are the same across the globe; neither does it argue that there is one best mitigating practice. Instead it seeks to discuss the various mitigating strategies to make an attempt to arrive at a ‘best’ possible solution.
