Henrik Pedersen, a Danish Climate Change and Environmental Expert has advised Nigerians to embrace electric bicycles to reduce the effect of climate change.
The senior consultant and project manager at the NIRAS Group spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Nigeria is facing distractious weather conditions that have claimed the lives of scores of citizens and displaced thousands in some states.
Pedersen lamented the growing effect of climate change and stressed the need for countries to cut down on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The expert said the use of bicycles (electric bicycles) could be a cheaper, faster and more eco-friendly way of commuting.
“If you move on a bicycle rather than a car, then you have no emissions, even if it is electric bicycle, the emission would be very low at least.
“Also if you look at producing bicycles does not take a lot of resources or emit a lot of CO2 (carbon dioxide) compared to cars.
“So this singular measure can go a long way in addressing some of the climate issues, apart from the fact that riding a bicycle keeps you heathy.”
Pedersen added that electric bicycles are faster due to the high rate of traffic in major cities across the world.
