Chioma Obiadi: US planned pull-out of Paris Agreement and future of Niger-Delta region

Chioma Obiadi: US planned pull-out of Paris Agreement and future of Niger-Delta region

It saddened my heart when I listened to the news few days ago to hear that the United States (US) will withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Although, we all know that China has recently surpassed the United States in annual greenhouse gas emissions, the US on its own has produced 27 per cent of the total carbon dioxide emissions of the world as at 2011. The worry thing about carbon dioxide is that it stays up in the atmosphere for a very long time. Enough time to cause the damage we all try to avoid for ourselves, our families and our countries.

Hence, the US is a very important country when it comes to reducing CO2 emission, protecting the environment and as a hegemony, take the lead in the movement of saving the world from itself in this discourse.

Indeed, for many years, the US has continually reaffirmed its leadership in promoting peace in the world and specifically promoting the need to safeguard our environment against global warming.

So, withdrawing from the Paris Agreement is a mistake and I pray Donald Trump recants his earlier your statement on the issue, because of its likely consequences on oil-producing communities and regions, where American oil firms already have investments like the Niger-Delta.

Apart from the Kyoto Protocol, a pivotal moment was reached in Paris in 2015 when 196 member states reached a consensus to adopt the Paris Agreement.

The Paris Agreement is an agreement with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) aimed at getting countries of the world to work together to mitigate global warming. Particularly, focused on enhancing implementation, Article 2 of the UNFCCC aims to:

(a) Hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels, recognizing that this would significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change;

(b) To Increase the ability to adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change and foster climate resilience and low greenhouse gas emissions development, in a manner that does not threaten food production; and

(c) To Make finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development.

Former UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, once said: “For the first time, every country in the world pledged to curb their emissions, strengthen resilience and join in common cause for the common good,”

Nigeria, through President Muhammadu Buhari and the former Minister of Environment, Amina Mohammed, signed the Paris Agreement in 2016.
Whilst climate change is still far from the consciousness of the typical Nigerian, it is a step in the right direction which social actors like me keep support and promote. It is my dream that Nigeria becomes “greener conscious” and that citizens work hard to preserve our beautiful country.

The social movement in the US has been a shining example and I really call on the government of Donald Trump to uphold the positive identity of the US as the world sees it – a super power and a role model.

Through the Green-Girl Project, I have tried and still try to bring the issues of the environment to the consciousness of the Nigerian People especially seeing the degradation we experience.

The Niger Delta – a crucial area in Nigeria that requires significant attention – is one of my main focuses. I am indeed happy about projects like the Ogoni Clean-up and related restoration projects.

However, I fear that President Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement as already signed by 196 countries will affect the involvement of American companies like Exxon Mobil who should be crucial to promoting the clean-up and other climate change issues in Nigeria.

Exxon-Mobil is at the heart of Nigeria’s economy as a major manufacturer and marketer of commodity and specialty petro-chemicals in Nigeria. I want to see Exxon-Mobil increase its commitment to safeguarding the environment in Nigeria through its social investment projects and funding.

According to NASA, earth’s temperatures in 2015 were the hottest ever recorded. Rising temperatures and changing patterns of rain and sunshine are changing where plants grow, and in the case of our oceans, encouraging the proliferation of species that impact native ocean habitat.

As ocean waters along the Niger-Delta region where several American Oil firms have on-going operations warm, they expand; causing sea-levels to rise. Those living in the Niger-Delta coast are at an increased risk of storms and floods as well as the risk of losing their communities, life and livelihood. Climate change is all over the news every day and it is by no chance “fake news”.

For that reason, I urge US to take a bolder step towards showing its commitment to protecting the environment in the US and the world. I look forward to better action from Trump’s government, moving forward.

At the same time, I continue to urge people especially in Nigeria to do their own bits to promote and safeguard the environment through little actions they can practice in their living space.

Climate change is already beginning to transform life on earth. We cannot change global warming in terms of where it is today but we can stop from getting worse, because of the importance of its likely consequence on our existence.

I agree with Former President Barack Obama when he said, “This is national security issue, it is not just an the US commitment to the Paris Agreement and other related commitment is not just about the environment, it is about ‘putting American first’ and it is about saving the world… especially poor communities like the Niger-Delta where gas flaring and other environmental degradations are a common sight..

The US should be the super power and ‘Big Brother’ it claims to be and walk its talk.

Only great changes can show us how strong and hardy we are. Only changes are able to prove who is our real friend and who is a fake. So don’t be afraid of changes – they are painful, but you’ll see who is who, after all.

Willing to fight for your happiness is half the battle. First of all, you should listen to your heart and try to find what really makes you happy.

Life will drag you down, because it makes the strongest people fight. There is a saying I believe: “Life only makes the strongest soldiers fight, because it knows that everyone else is already crawling on their knees”. Continue reading

Happiness is something not everyone has………..

, , , ,

Life is just a roller-coaster filled with ups and down, and even crashes, but everything is meant to be, live to see your amazing future, and never give up!

Never give up and always remember that the most difficult roads often lead to the most amazing places.

People have to admit that there’s no unified happiness for everybody. People are different and their ideas on what happiness is are also different. And that’s okay, because it means that the world is full of things that can make us truly happy.

Life is just an amazing book that we all write ourselves. Some chapters are sad, and some are really great, but they all are emotional and inspiring. That is the thing. Try to live your life at full and you’ll never regret a single chapter of it.

These days, people are so afraid to be different, to change something in their life, because they are afraid to be judged by other people. But you should learn that everyone goes through changes. It’s okay to change something that doesn’t work for you.

Happiness is something not everyone has, but it’s the thing that everyone wants,
Once you have it, never take it for granted.
Never waist it and forget about it, because some people would kill to be happy!

WHAT IS HAPPINESS?

What is happiness?
It is a feeling of exhilaration, satisfaction and lack of worries and anxieties.
You usually experience happiness when everything is okay, when plans proceed as expected, and when you are loved or respected.
You experience happiness when you get what you want, when doing something you love doing, when a goal is achieved, or while being in a beautiful place, such as at the beach, when the sun is setting.
If you could look inside you, when you are happy, you will discover that at these moments there are no worries, fears or obsessing thoughts. This means that happiness and inner peace are interconnected.
Happiness, often, seems to be the result of positive events, but actually, it comes from the inside, triggered by external events. It usually seems to be fleeting and temporary, but when you learn to choose, and to allow happiness into your life, it gradually becomes more permanent.
10 Tips to Help You Choose to Be Happy
1. Find the good and positive in every situation.
This is not difficult. In every situation there must be something good, happy or amusing. Why not focus on it?
Your mind might drag you down, to think about negativity and difficulties, because that’s how it is accustomed to think. Don’t let it.
Endeavor to change the way you look at things, focusing more on the bright side of life.
2. Focus on solutions.
It is very easy to find problems and difficulties everywhere, because it requires nothing, but a negative attitude. Instead of focusing on the problems, focus on solutions.
3. Watch your thoughts.
Whenever you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, change them to pleasant thoughts. Do this time and again.
4. Watch funny movies.
Prefer to watch funny comedies that make you laugh, rather than thrillers and violent movies, especially before bed time.
5. Reading
Each day, find the time to read a few pages from an inspiring book or article.
6. Look at what you have already accomplished and focus on it.
Often, we start the day with the intention of completing several goals or tasks, but we are unable to complete them.
At the end of the day you might feel frustrated and unhappy, because you haven’t been able to do all of those things.
It would be wise to be more reasonable and use common sense, instead of deciding without thinking. When you set more reasonable goals and tasks, you have less chance of being disappointed and unhappy.
Don’t let frustration, and the inability to carry out everything you set out to do to ruin your happiness. Focus on what you have already accomplished. This will awaken satisfaction, and sense of happiness.
7. Each day do something good for yourself.
It can be something small, such buying a book, baking a cake, going to the theater, visiting friends, or inviting friends to your house.
8. Seek the company of happy people.
Happiness is contagious. If you are in the company of happy people, there is a great chance that you will be infected by their happiness, provided you don’t focus on unhappiness while in their company.
9. Don’t take anything too personally.
Do your best to stay a little detached when things do not progress as want them to progress.
Don’t allow negative remarks or behavior affect you mind and feelings. You might not succeed the first, second or third time, but if you are persistent, you will eventually succeed.
Detachment will help you stay calm and control your moods and reactions.
10. Listen to relaxing, uplifting music.
It is said that music is the language of the soul. Listen often, to relaxing music, or any kind of music that uplifts your spirit.

DISCOVER YOUR HAPPY PATTERN

Tags

, ,

“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”

On a beautiful sunny morning, while walking to work, you meet someone, who asked you for a small loan, months ago, but haven’t paid back yet. He smiles at you, says a nice “good morning”, and keeps walking.

How would you react in this situation?DISCOVER YOUR HAPPY PATTERN

You might think:

“What is he thinking? Does he think that I have amnesia?”

“He might at least show some respect, and say that he is doing his best to pay me back the loan.”

The encounter with him might ruin your day. You’ll probably keep thinking all day long about the friend and the loan you gave him, while feeling angry and resentful.

Every day, we go through many similar incidents. Some of them are easy to deal with, some are a bit unpleasant, and some are annoying, disturbing and sometimes, unbearable.

You need to make a choice.

You need to make a choice and stand by it, to accept to be unhappy or to choose to feel happy.

  1. You can choose to dwell on an unhappy event all day long. You may also choose to refuse to think about it, and focus on other events that make you feel happy and bring a smile to your face.
  2. You might have experienced unpleasantness. You might have suffered from some humiliation, disrespect or anger, but you do not have to let them influence your reactions and feelings.
  3. You might not be able to change people’s behavior, but you can control your reactions, your response, and whether to let their behavior and their actions affect you.

If you let external events influence your moods, you will be at the mercy of these forces and influences. You will lose your inner poise and your happiness. You will allow your happiness to be determined by other people and by external influences.

Choose happiness, contentment and joy as a way of life.

Choose to be happy, and strive, no matter how difficult it might be, to reject, ignore and refuse to associate with unhappy thoughts and feelings.

This would require some effort on your part. Sometimes, you might fall back into the habit of dwelling on unhappiness, but gradually, you will learn to be happy and content.

Choose to free yourself from outer influences. Prefer happiness to unhappiness. It is your attitude that makes you feel happy or unhappy.

Be inspirational sharp

Tags

, , , ,

Inspiration comes in many forms and can strike randomly.  Some days we have an abundance of creative energy which comes naturally, other days it’s not so easy.  Writing, music, art and design all help me foster internal creativity, and I know you probably feel the same way.

There are a ton of blogs dedicated to inspiration, and while that is not the main theme I write on here, I do enjoy sharing some of my philosophies on life with you from time to time.

I find it extremely useful when other bloggers write quick lists highlighting articles they enjoyed writing because it is pretty easy to miss a post if you follow a lot of blogs.

The importance of keeping your mind sharp cannot be overstated. We’re all part of a fantastic intellectual and information economy, which thrives on ideas, creativity and intelligence. Keeping your mind sharp is sure to give you the edge over the competition, and more importantly lead to your own higher levels of happiness.Don't Be Afraid to Make Mistakes (2)

When your mind is in top shape, you will:

  • Have greater motivation and focus
  • Get more done
  • Come up with more creative ideas
  • Find inspiration more often
  • Remember more
  • Experience a better life

I’d like to share a few practices I’ve found are extremely beneficial in keeping my mind sharp and can help you as well:

1) Continue reading, absorbing knowledge and experiencing culture
Sorry to use a clichéd quote, but education is not preparation for life, education is life itself.It should be something pleasurable and done for intrinsic reasons above all else. Read blogs on subjects both within your field and in new fields you know nothing about; read books; watch lectures on fascinating new subjects; read about ancient societies; take in a new form of art you’ve never experienced; you get the idea. Challenge your mind to continually broaden your horizon and soak up new information like an infinite sponge (that’s pretty much what it is, you should use it to do just that).

2) Learn a skill or craft you’ve never tried before like playing an instrument, composing music, painting, building a model airplane, or even coding computer programs.
Engage your mind in learning a new skill. You’re never too old to do this, but this is definitely something you should start as young as you can. I started composing my own music at around 17, and in retrospect I wish I had started even younger. You’d be surprised how much learning a new skill will open up many new paths in your mind and help you become even better at whatever you are already an expert at. You’ll also open yourself up to tons of new connections and intellectual social circles by engaging yourself in a new hobby, form of art, or trade.

3) To improve memory don’t write everything down
If you can, try this for a week: write down everything you need to do at the beginning of the week, as you normally would, but take your list and put it out of sight. Instead of keeping that list visible at your desk, internalize your projects and simply remember and know what needs to be done, prioritize it in your mind, and do it. Your brain is extremely powerful and you’ll find that, in time, you may not have to write anything down to remember everything (you can still keep a list for reference, but it’s great not to need it).

4) Give your mind time to assimilate knowledge
We live in a culture where we are constantly experiencing and learning new things and taking in new information. This is a great thing, I’m not going to go into the information overload spiel, I don’t really believe in that anyway (you are in total control over how much information you take in at once). But in your process of absorbing new skills, knowledge and life experiences; internal analysis of yourself, what you have learned and where you are going is vital to put everything in proper perspective. Some people do it well during running, others through listening to music, and some people through making art. Find your own place that allows you to assimilate all you have learned and frequent it often.

5) Eat well, sleep well and exercise often
Giving your mind the proper rest and energy is essential to getting the best performance out of it. This one is pretty self explanatory, but people often forget that you need proper fuel and proper rest to function optimally. Also, putting your physical body through the paces is a surefire way to rejuvenate yourself mentally. If you’re ever feeling stressed, out of inspiration, or depressed, a few days of nutritious food, good sleep and vigorous exercise will put you back to your full self soon enough.
