Global change is evident as it affects the economy, health, agriculture, water supply, etc. The next generation ma)' have stiffer experience if we do not mitigate anthropogenic pollution and plan for a safer environment. In this study, thirty-nine years temperature dataset from NASA was used to estimate the level of climate change in Agege. Lagos State of Nigeria. It was observed that climate change is evident over Agege. with > 80% each month showing slight and adverse anomalies. It is recommended that if fossil fuel and other anthropogenic emissions are reduced, and the government encourages renewable energy sources. Then, the significant influence of climate change on life basics can be mitigated for the future generation. With clear evidence of thermal anomalies, building professionals and town planners owe it a duty to enact thermal discomfort policies.
