      The absence of rain nowadays is an extremely worrying change in weather patterns that has resulted in devastating situations in Kenya, and other places around the world.
      Climate change is caused by human activities that emit greenhouse gases (cause global warming) into the air, which in turn is expected to affect the frequency of extreme weather events such as drought, extreme temperatures, flooding, high winds, and severe storms.
      Globally, there are efforts for countries to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases they emit by changing the type of fuels they use in industries etc. However, you can also help improve the situation by reducing the use of such fuels and planting trees
