Climate change has been a cause of great concern to the world. And there are many reasons to be concerned about the impact of climate change on agriculture and food security. These include deforestation, over-cultivation of grasslands, increased poverty, unplanned urbanization, loss of flora and so on. This paper argued that the scientific community should be involved in studying climate change and forecasting weather, and then transmitting this information to all sectors of Nigerian society, industry and economy so that these sectors can adapt and be ready to meet a very different future than the present. It also called on the Nigerian government to adopt strategies and policies that will encourage improved farming and agricultural methods, and that will encourage improved farming and agricultural methods, and that will protect our cherished forest and the bio-diversity of this great country.
