Climate reporters!

COP27-SpecialQuestion-Banner

COP events are held every year to get world leaders to discuss different ways of tackling global climate issues.

So why is climate change such an urgent problem to solve? We asked some young climate activists from around the world to tell us what climate issues they are facing where they live.

    For me it's kind of shocking because for us we used to mainly have the same sunlight and rain but now we barely have any rain and a lot of sunlight. For us, in the summer it was very hot reaching 40 degrees Celsius which trust me I could barely stay outside for a second.

  • accomplished_frog | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    A rise in temperature is followed by a decrease in precipitation, resulting in a lack of water
    Agriculture will suffer from this and the economy in my area will suffer. We should make water harvesting facilities such as wells, thus reducing the danger to agriculture and reducing the bad economy

  • committed_tsunami | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 03 Nov 2022

    How do you feel about what our climate activist said?
    One of the important aspects of climate change in Palestine (a decrease in annual rainfall), accompanied by an increase in temperatures, is reflected in the decrease in annual runoff, which decreases dramatically, and ultimately the decrease in water availability.

    What is the biggest climate issue affecting your local area?

  • accurate_wombat | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 03 Nov 2022

    To be honest I feel sad, but even though I am already quite aware of the information they are giving out I would rather like to see what they do about it. Climate change affects everyone, in Nigeria we were also affected our seasons were all messed up. Climate change isn't all bad in some countries it helped, but I think it in my local area it was our food production that was bad. Basically it was just about how we should vote a climate change positive president and how it affected our poverty by nearly over a quarter percent.

  • generous_physics | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 03 Nov 2022

    I feel sad because I love plants and trees and everything to do with plants and flowers and wild animals and I really want to help them survive the next 2 century's.

  • generous_physics | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 03 Nov 2022

    All of the trees are dying and so is the environment and that is not good, so I try and walk and bike to school not using a car or anything that uses greenhouse gasses.

  • inspiring_raccoon | Lyons Hall Primary School D | United Kingdom 03 Nov 2022

    The seas are getting warmer which is killing fish and Antarctic animals. If we don’t fix the planet know we won’t have one to wake up to

  • inspiring_raccoon | Lyons Hall Primary School D | United Kingdom 03 Nov 2022

    I have also noticed animals are disappearing from their habitat and predators are moving into places t9 catch their usual prey. This means more and more animals are dying and trees are getting cut down so animals are losing more and more of their habitats.

  • free_snail | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 03 Nov 2022

    I am very upset when hearing about a problem facing the world that I cannot reduce or increase, and therefore I made a decision to help as much as possible to face this crisis, as my country is facing the problem of air pollution caused by the smoke of factories and cars, and therefore I suggested to our municipality that You divert this smoke to the bottom of the ground and put pools of water on top of it to treat patients with it, and indeed I have contributed to alleviating this problem.

  • lovely_language | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 03 Nov 2022

    I sorry for the climate issues they are facing, I look at their properties being destroyed and losing of lives which is so absurd. In my area , Uganda, we happen to have harsh droughts and experiencing shorter or longer rains and it is affecting food crop production hence food crisis , because as of this year, Ugandans are facing a problem of food production because they plant their crops thinking the rain shall be sufficient but to their shock, it stops and crops dry due to the drought .This is seen in the Eastern and Northeastern parts of Uganda.
    And when they expect the rain to be just enough , it exceeds and becomes excess hence floods and landslides leading to destruction of crops, property, and lives more especially in places like Bududa- Eastern Uganda which is so absurd.

  • secure_theory | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 03 Nov 2022

    The amount of rainfall recived but climate change doesn't directly refer only to drought but climate change also causes alot of rainfall in a short period of time which can equal to folding in areas.

  • secure_theory | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 03 Nov 2022

    Climate Change is an issue that we need to solve now instead of waiting for affordable electric cars and motorcycles we need to start now and we can by simply advocating for the use of public transport instead of private vehicles in town areas where it is ready ad available

  • joyous_guitar | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 03 Nov 2022

    I feel that the major cause of all of these problems is global warming, with the rising temperature of 2 degrees Celsius to 3 degrees Celsius some parts of the world will in the next few years will dry up if we don't reduce on our carbon gases.

  • giving_mood | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 03 Nov 2022

    Climate change is a problem that must be solved as soon as possible because climate change can lead to severe drought, water scarcity, severe fires, floods, storms and much of that. Including the death of plants due to the lack of suitable atmosphere for some plants, and there are plants due to the high temperature that are affected and die, and the olive tree lacks the production of its crops this year due to climate change and also people get sick a lot when the climate changes, so solutions must be found as soon as possible

  • daring_cherry | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 04 Nov 2022

    When i had from them, I felt the need to stop climate change. Alba talked of landslides that have been affecting her area destroying homes which is similar to the climate issue in my country[Uganda in Bududa district].Due to heavy rains, landslides have become a song there since its a sloppy area, peoples homes are destroyed leaving them homeless, gardens are destroyed causing food insecurity there. This results into increase in population in the areas that these people migrate to causing scarcity of resources, reducing the environmental hygiene and increasing pollution levels through emissions from industries, auto mobiles and exhaust pipes hence increasing the amount of carbon gases in the atmosphere which depletes the ozone layer, acidic rains and putting us closer to the greenhouse effect. So basically climate issues in Bududa are affecting other areas as well indirectly.

  • great_mango | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 04 Nov 2022

    The biggest climatic problem affecting my country is the rain in the winter, heavy rain, because the streets have sandy streets, and there is a valley next to us in which rain water collects, and when the valley is completely filled with rain, it floats on us.

  • communicative_cheetah | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 04 Nov 2022

    Well the biggest climate issue facing my country is climate change for example in my country there are three major regions; the northern, central, southern, eastern and western. Each of these regions faces its own climate related issue. For example the northern normally faces extremely hot temperatures, the southern moderate, the eastern moderate, the western moderate and in the central the temperatures are continuously changing.
    There are lots of stories like for example in some parts of the central it can flood.

  • cultured_theory | Shri Natesan Vidyasala Mhss | India 04 Nov 2022

    Climatic changes arise due to human activities such as deforestation, emission of CO ,NOx ,CFC which destroys the Ozone layer and depletion of natural resources,etc.
    So it's our duty to protect the environment for our future generations to lead a healthy life.It can be achieved by using electric vehicles, avoiding the usage of plastics, afforestation,etc. Nature provides a lot for the survival of the living beings. So it's our responsibility to conserve it.

  • active_tree | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 04 Nov 2022

    The biggest climate change disaster is the GLOBAL WARMiNG and this made lots of drawbacks around the world. Unfortunately this is all from the human being and the natural disasters that happened the past few years.

    The reasons of the global warming that happened from the human being are like: The cars and trains pollutions, also the pollutions of the factories that just spreads in the air and the factories garbage that they throw in the lakes or any water surface that is around that factory. The garbage that people throw on the streets and in the sea is also a big reason for this kind of climate change .

    The natural disaster reason is the fires that happened in different countries in the past years.

    All of these reasons made our Ozone layer get bigger so the solutions of that are : using natural energies like the solar energy, not to throw any garbage on the street or in the sea , by also planting lots of trees and green areas in all countries so we can have a good looking environment and a fresh air atmosphere instead of air filled with pollution, also we have to try to avoid any fires for safety and a clean atmosphere .

  • dedicated_squirrel | Bal Bharati Public school B | India 05 Nov 2022

    I felt sad after hearing about their experiences. The fact that we the youth- the world's future—are well aware of climate change and its effects offered me some hope, though. Climate change has had a significant impact on my local area as well. The most prominent problem here, though, is air pollution. Spending too much time outdoors without a mask is deemed hazardous. It's rare if we even get to take a breath of fresh air.

  • altruistic_cliff | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 05 Nov 2022

    From the Early ages people are doing research for different purposes such as establishing industries and making chemicals etc. Without knowing it's impact or side effects on nature . But as the time passes we come to know about the results and impact of our activities but it was too late the pollution is increased so much .
    And I think our climate activist said there will be a time when we need to buy oxygen in bottles as we buy mineral water today .

  • charismatic_eel | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 05 Nov 2022

    In my Country Pakistan, recently I am coming back home and I saw dangerous smoke in air that was very dangerous to us it effect our eyes we cannot see clearly we feel pain in eyes


    It was due to our activities that Cause global warming which thickens the ozone layer and increased the temperature and cause smoke
    🛑 It was dangerous to our health, skin and also causes alleric disease


    🛑 The second climatic change was flood that year in our country have high flood which was due to heavy rain and melting of glaciers which destroy field million of livestock died and many people died

    🛑 It was due to factories waste and cars smoke factories waste was thrown in lakes which effect our aquatic lives and also effect our environment

    🛑 In my opinion I feel that we cannot thrown industrial waste in lakes and make industries away from population areas and use coal and hydro power plants

    🛑 I feel that the world's roads are clogged with vehicles , most of them burning diesel or Petrol walking or riding bikes instead of driving will reduce green house gas emissions and help your health and fitness for longer distance consider taking a train or bus and carpool whenever possible

  • storytelling_memory | Lyons Hall Primary School A | United Kingdom 05 Nov 2022

    Climate change have changed the world and we must find away to stop it but how think about it.What do you think,think about a way to stop climate change.

  • storytelling_memory | Lyons Hall Primary School A | United Kingdom 05 Nov 2022

    This year and last year was bad weather and we need determination to do that and I’ve needed so much help with a alternative.So help each with that.

  • awesome_sea | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    I admire what climate activists are doing and consider them as role models, and I will use social media to inform people about climate problems. We in Gaza City suffer from overcrowding and lack of rain water, and this leads to a decrease in the level of groundwater in

  • majestic_boysenberry | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    Speaking a bout my feelings . I feel sory for them and appreciate thier suffering but if we come to my area it suffers from a lack of water due to the lack of rain and it's fluctuation from year to year from my point of view building wells and stroing water as much as possible is a good idea to protect agricultural crops.

  • inventive_conclusion | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 07 Nov 2022

    What I heard in the video shocked me a little. I have been a student at the Global Conversation for almost two years, and during the past year we have talked clearly about climate change. It gets worse, we in the Gaza Strip are considered the most densely populated around the world, where more than 2.1 million people live on 365 km, and the most problems we face are the lack of rainfall, we depend heavily on agriculture and its crops, and the lack of rain leads to the suspension of production Thus, stopping the lives of many Palestinian families, the spread of unemployment and the weakness of the economy, and this gives dire consequences,The most news stories that people in the Gaza Strip follow at the moment are
    "The weather forecast in Gaza" is almost the most important thing, because the weather is in control of them, if it is sunny, they go to their fields and farms to plant and take care of them to prepare for rain on them to get the best products at the time of harvest.

  • shy_moose | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 07 Nov 2022

    Strategies to cope with Climate Change, Construction of dams to assess and address the additional water problem in Pakistan is essential along with taking action to enhance the life of existing storage facilities (GOP, 2012).

  • shy_moose | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 07 Nov 2022

    After CONVID-19 it is essential to change the life style of people because sudden use of vehicles and high rate economic activities can lead he world for another disasters in the form of climate explosion. For this purpose Governments needs to use renewable source of energy to stabilize their economies which got hit by the corona virus. A moderate and mutual approach at national and international level should be adopted .

  • shy_moose | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 07 Nov 2022

    Climate change is a serious issue in contemporary era. To avoid its hazards it is essential to communicate and to give awareness to the public. People are not giving enough importance to cl imate change. By using media strategies it should be informed to the masses that there is risk in “do nothing” options. audiences Targeted for this purpose include: General public, Farmers, Fisher Folk, Vulnerable communities, youth, disable people, school going children, Policy Makers, Opinion leaders, Researchers, Civil Servants and Business community. Communicating tools for this purpose includes reading material, promotional material, Phone call, SMS, face to face and personal talk, online, audio visual documentaries, talk shows, Music and Curricula etc.

  • shy_moose | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 07 Nov 2022

    Toxic emission is major reason of climate change. There must be cut down to the use of such vehicles. Behavior to use public transport should be adopted rather than to use private transportation. Hybrid vehicles have lower rate of emission, so these cars should be used.

  • majestic_boysenberry | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 07 Nov 2022

    In my area the most sustainable things we have are the use of cans and other things like using after they are finished to put water or pickles in them and what like about the children in my town and I think it's a good recycling method is their use of plastic bags that are not needed to make kites .

  • sensible_bee | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 07 Nov 2022

    I feel very sorry because of the intransigence of many and their continued destruction of the environment without looking to the future and the continuation of wars and the emission of toxic gases without seriously thinking about finding alternatives and the future of future generations
    The problem is increasingly developing in our region, where sea water is polluted due to the lack of places to drain sewage and discharge it into the sea, which affects the water wealth and its mixing with groundwater, despite the activities of activists to raise awareness of the use of water, but the problem is increasing

  • shy_moose | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 08 Nov 2022

    In my school of thought atlantic salmon populations may collapse as the rivers in which they spawn are warming. Coral reefs may disappear as ocean acidification increases due to more carbon dioxide absorption. Scientists have set an increase in temperature of 1.5 degrees Celsius as a "safe" limit for global warming. If the temperature rises, harmful changes in the natural environment could alter the way humans live.

  • shy_moose | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 08 Nov 2022

    Climate change will change the way we live, causing water scarcity and making it harder to produce food. Some regions may become dangerously hot and others may become uninhabitable due to sea level rise. Extreme weather events such as heat waves, rains and storms will become more frequent and intensify, threatening people's lives and livelihoods.

    Citizens of poorer countries are less likely to adapt and will suffer the most.

  • motivated_cheetah | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    1 I feel sad, but accompanied by hope and optimism that all these problems will be resolved


    2 The impact of climate change significantly on agriculture. When the rainfall is delayed, it will negatively affect agriculture. the maturation of the crop will be delayed and a large amount of water will be wasted when irrigating the crop throughout the year. Insects will appear that the high temperature is suitable for their livelihood and their abundance and continue to affect agriculture

  • shy_moose | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 08 Nov 2022

    I belong to Pakistan, Pakistan is facing climate change nowadays, in which it faced heat wave in summer, floods after monsoon rains have caused havoc in Pakistan. It was the most dangerous flood in the history. The flood caused destruction in many areas of Pakistan. People are in bad condition. We started a movement in our city which was very useful for the flood victims. People came together to help their people. They were affected by the flood.

  • shy_moose | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 08 Nov 2022

    The flood victims are in a very bad condition, they did not even get food to eat and drink, then we started a movement in our city and delivered food to the flood victims, which made our hearts very satisfied, our Pakistani brothers. Helping those affected by the flood gave us great relief.

  • nice_snake | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 08 Nov 2022

    Climate change also enhancing social inequalities in the Pakistan due to depletion of resources and economic injuries. Economic inequalities, displacement of peoples and conflictive situation will further increase.

  • nice_snake | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 08 Nov 2022

    It is projected that due to climate issue diseases like Cholera in the coastal Areas of Pakistan are getting momentum

  • nice_snake | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 08 Nov 2022

    My mother-land is Pakistan, the Pakistani economy is highly based on agriculture. Due to challenges posed by climate change the yield of the crops are at risk which directly influence the livelihood of the population and creating many other social problems like poverty, and urbanization etc.

  • nice_snake | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 08 Nov 2022

    Pakistan is facing dangerous flood in 2022. So, according to my my point of view, melting of glacier in the Himalayas will increase in coming time which reciprocally increase the rate of flooding in Pakistan. Availability of fresh water for life activities is predicted to decrease due to which life will be at risk and population will face severe circumstances.

  • nice_snake | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 08 Nov 2022

    In my views Earth's normal weather is different than it was one million years ago because the earth's climate has changed considerably during those years. However, the climate is changing in a very different way now. This is because we humans are doing things that are changing the weather patterns.

  • great_flute | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    climate change is happening and it's certain humans have an effect on it also a thing i feel like a lot of people leave out is the fact that a climate change is a natural occurence and there is a cycle of glacial and interglacial periods. but since we don't have a large enough time frame of climate measurement's we don't know how much do we impact the climate because to know
    that for fact we would need to have measurments trough at least one other interglacial period then we would see the
    difference this way we just can't know how much we impact it we can only speculate also a rise in
    temperature isn't so simple as presented warming of the ocean might cause a change in sea currents(the big ones) which could very well
    make europe colder instead of warmer

  • calm_deer | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    Human activity is one of the causes of climate change, this is evidenced by the greenhouse effect gases originated by the smoke of factories. Over the years, this environmental issue has increased, for that reason today we can see the horrible consequences. We can see these in our ocean, in the weather, in our food sources and in our health. Forme,the biggest consequence is in the weather because the high temper atures caused by climate change generated the thawing of ice, leaving many animals without their natural habits . Also,the high temperatures affect in our skin when we have direct contact with sun , and in our food / healthy because growing crops becomes more difficult.Is a sad reality but if we care a bout the planet, we can do the change.

  • brave_forest | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    I have this kinda plan..... What if we build something like a floating base in ocean and we let small trees grow there, Instead in land so that we can use the space for building structures that have vertical farms inside instead of using hectares of space for farming, so we can also use the land space for building houses with solar panel so we can help those poor people who lives in streets etc.

    All at the same time.....

  • shy_lake | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    What people don't understand is that although there is a correlation between temperature and climate, just because it doesn't feel like summer everyday doesn't mean it's not happening. Climate is global or regional, it's different than weather. Weather could change every day. Climate cannot. Moreover, for those who argue that we've experienced climate change in the past, that is correct, but compare the levels of CO2 and the rate of climate change with that of the previously stated.

  • blissful_fruit | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    The main causes of climate change are :Humanity's increased use of fossil fuels -such as coal , oil and gas to generate electricity , run cars and other forms of transport , and power manufacturing and industry. Deforestation -because living trees absorb and store carbon dioxide. :(😟

  • beloved_planet | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    I am not saying that CO2 emissions do not affect the Climate temperature , but why do I feel like people do not look at other factors ?why do we automatically assume that Co2 is the only factor ? can it be that Co2 might just be one of the hundreds of factors that causes climate change such as the sea,sun,atc.., and that we actually don't really know how much humans contribute to climate change? Furthermore it would be impossible to figure out what our spending of trillion of dollars not driving cars,atc., would accomplish in 20 years . I'm open to having my mind changed , but I don't see it as very reasonable and proportional to sacrifice my freedoms for something that we don't even know if it will make any difference - for a proplem that we don't really know why it come to be .

  • kind_iceberg | Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School B | Pakistan 09 Nov 2022

    The activists seem to be concerned about climate change effects in their countries and areas. In the last century the global temperature has risen 0.6 C^0. But it is alarming that slightly more than the said level increment in temperature has been reported even for the last two decades of the current century. The result is in front of us - what the activists are telling is a truth.
    Quick rise in global temperature is the most contributing factor which is affecting Pakistan. This is evident from recent flood and disaster which we have faced, and still bearing economic consequences. Our Prime Minister and the UNO secretary general are telling the world what disaster phenomenon Pakistan is going through.
    The story is the current disaster in Pakistan due to heavy rains in the last monsoon episode. Pakistan has negligible contributor to the emission of carbon dioxide and chlorofluorocarbons. Even then we are acting on billion tree projects and asking the world for necessary measures to reduce climate change contributing factors.

  • reflective_orchard | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 09 Nov 2022

    I think to decrease the air pollution we need to make the factories away from the cities and to decrease the pollution from the air we need to stop the cars which are producing smoke ...
    To lowering the pollution their are many easiest ways like planting
    We need to stop using that things which is taking us to greenhouse effect

  • shy_moose | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 09 Nov 2022

    According to my point of view, Pakistan is facing an unprecedented natural disaster. As far as Pakistan's role in combating climate change is concerned, Pakistan participated in the COP-26 held in Glasgow in November 2021 and signed the Global Methane Pledge along with 100 other countries in an important international effort. Tried to play the role. The pledge aims to limit global methane emissions by about 30 percent over the next two decades. Looking at the recent weather events in Pakistan, the fact cannot be denied that the threat posed by climate change is real and if timely remediation is not possible, sooner or later all countries will face it in their turn. Will definitely do.

  • succinct_engine | Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School B | Pakistan 09 Nov 2022

    A continuous rise in the global temperature is melting our glaciers - thus causing floods and sea level rise. Improper or no planning for expanding urban areas is causing pollution problems. Moreover, our media channels focus on political and entertainment events instead of bringing to the notice of the general public the environmental and pollution problems. So, media should be used to highlight the environmental and climate change effects. At the last if not the least, it should motivate people to keep living places clean, self hygiene and planting trees to increase greenery.

  • outspoken_knowledge | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 09 Nov 2022

    I really feel sad to see people suffering and the problem they are facing cannot be solved by anyone or they can't help themselves the situation really hurts to be homeless and to have no job yet you used to have a supporting job, this really hurts me, in our local area we are facing a problem of too much rainfall than usual, unpredictable seasons this really disorganizes the people and the food production in our country since farmers knew months in which they used to do certain activities but right now we don't have any climate issue that causes death of people.
    Currently unpredictable seasons is the climate news in Uganda

  • inspirational_information | Al Quds Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 09 Nov 2022

    In order not to pollute the environment or raise carbon dioxide, use sustainable agriculture by giving farmers more areas for farming and their climate-smart practices such as experimenting with hydroponics and using harvesting equipment that operates on solar, hydro or wind energy instead of fuel

  • inspirational_information | Al Quds Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 09 Nov 2022

    Through my research, I found that one of the biggest causes of global warming is the use of fossil fuels, the use of fossil fuels in the world reached 80% in 2019 while renewable energy such as wind and sun accounted for 11% in 2019, a lot of coal and fuel is burned, causing a rise Carbon dioxide, I suggest using renewable energy from wind and sun

  • warmhearted_attitude | Bomas Academy | Nigeria 09 Nov 2022

    I think the biggest climate issue in Nigeria is flooding. I say so because some places like Bayelsa, Rivers, Kogi, Edo, and Delta states are faced with the challenge of flooding. People over there have lost their homes and been taken to live in some camps provided by some NGOs.
    There are records of the loss of lives of over 600 people in this disaster, 1.4 million people were displaced and more than 2400 persons were reported injured. This disaster has also made the cellular network connection very bad for the people over there as people in these areas find it difficult to reach or call out for help.
    This disaster is as a result of climate change and rising sea levels, now water has left the oceans and come to live on land with us. This has also made all aquatic animals come on land even the dangerous aquatic animals have come offshore. Some people have even resorted to cooking in canoes while floating on water.
    For most citizens, their ability to reduce flood risk, and cope with or even prevent flooding is determined by their income, housing, transportation network, drainage system, and road facilities.

  • trustworthy_chocolate | Rex Mill Middle STEM School D | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    the biggest climate issue in my area is landflieds everywhere because my area is poor so the rich areas drop they trash of in my area because my area is poor in don't have alot of things to do because you know my area poor so the trash sweep and move and it make the trash go every which make our air bad and other word / air pollution

  • intelligent_parrot | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 09 Nov 2022

    I belong to Pakistan.It is an agricultural country.About 70 %of our economy depends upon agriculture.We had a specific atmosphere for cultivation of crops.But human activities, industrial smokes, impurity of water, smoke of cars and some other elements are making our environment pollute . Which causes serious effects on our habitat . Human activities and smoke of vehicles and industries are raising earth's temperature (global warming).
    Recently in Pakistan,glaciers melted at high rate in addition we faced monsoon rains at large scale which resulted in devastating flood.This flood was not expected.This flood destroyed one-third of our crops.As a result we imported tomato, potato ,and onion from neighbouring countries .
    On other hand poisonous gases in air emitted by factories and vehicles e.g SO when reacts with rain water ,it makes acids as H2SO4 which is effecting our fertile land and acquatic life.

  • shy_moose | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 10 Nov 2022

    I am Pakistani , according to my point of view, When Lahore was once again named the world's most polluted city last month, surprisingly, no one was surprised. No one was paying attention to the fact that nature is telling us something, it requires our attention and wants a change in our habits and behavior. And, when snow was predicted in Murree last week, many people from the city flocked to Murree away from their smog-ridden lives. Thousands of people were trapped in their vehicles on the road leading to Murree in heavy snowfall. Out of thousands of them, more than 20 people, including women and children, lost their lives.

    In my opinion, the livelihoods of the lower and middle classes are being affected the most by the increasing environmental changes in Pakistan. According to experts, if proper measures are not taken, the number of environmental refugees is likely to increase in the coming years.
    Pakistan is one of the countries of South Asia, which are on the verge of climate change. According to a recent World Bank report, about 800 million people in South Asia have been severely affected by climate change. In rural areas, most people's livelihoods are related to employment, agriculture, herding, fishing, or deforestation. All these professions are vulnerable to major changes in the environment and ecosystem.

    My father is a fisherman. He belongs to Mubarak Goth on the coastal belt of Sindh. He told Deutsche Welle that until a year ago, he and his fellow fishermen used to catch so much every day that they sold in the market to easily cover a day's expenses. But now they are not able to catch so many fish even in a week. Experts say that due to rising sea temperature, marine pollution and bleaching of coral reefs, fish are not growing properly on the coasts of Pakistan, which has seriously affected the livelihood of fishermen.

    Power plants were installed in the late nineties throughout Pakistan to cater the power shortage problem. Power plants were also installed in the superbugs of Lahore as well. I got a chance to see such a plant from outside while travelling. Smoke of carbon fuel was being expelled from the chimneys of the plant round the clock - or say atmosphere was being polluted under official recommendation umbrella - 24/7 basis. I came to know that the Greenpeace opposed the installation at that time, but opposition was ignored for the sake of profit earning and financial gains.
    I would say that only practice and abiding by the policy slogans will be fruitful thing. There will be no use of just chanting environmental friendly slogans.
    On the one side the slogans are raised by the national and international counterparts for reduction of pollution and check global warming, but on the other hand opposite is done by themselves as well. Governments and departments responsible for arresting of smoke free vehicles are found running their own vehicles giving out full scale smoke.
    The activists are saying right - but our actions should speak louder than words.

    The planet can be saved by removing anti environmental activities and industries. If an industry is necessary then adopt policies and technologies which can help us in keeping our environment cool and clean. Industries emit out green house gases which are responsible for increasing global temperature. If global temperature rises then it will melt our glaciers, and ultimately more rains and flood will occur as is evident from the recent flooding in Pakistan. Ozone layer which protects us against ultraviolet rays coming from sun in our atmosphere, is also being destroyed by green house gases as well. Destruction to the ozone layer results in rise in global temperature rise and health hazards. We should adopt natural means for power generation. i-e stop oil using power plants and build dams for power generation instead.

    According to my school of thought, the farmers of Punjab, Pakistan who were hoping that this year's wheat production would be good, but the severe lack of rain before the harvest and the sudden hot weather put a snow of hopelessness on all the hopes of the farmers. However, my grandfather Muhammad Waseem is a citizen of Taunsa barrage. They said that they live in the limits of Head Taunsa Barrage near the Indus River. Every year from June to September there is a flood which causes a lot of damage to them. It happens and thus their crops are also destroyed, but this time, due to the intensity of heat in the summer season, the production of our crops decreased a lot.

    Rain is the Blessingof GOD. This Blessing becomes a problem not only in us but in many cities of the world. The heavy rains in the first week of July are double the 30-year average and have broken all records of the last 30 years, this year's monsoon season has started causing loss of life and property. A historic disaster has been caused due to which not only human lives and property but also the economy has been destroyed. According to the report of NDMA, 830 people including 313 children have died in the country due to rains and floods. 13,000 houses have been damaged, crops standing on 20 lakh acres have been destroyed. 116 districts have been affected across the country. 7,000 cattle, 2,886 km of highways, 129 bridges were affected by the flood-2022.

    I live in Pakistan.Our 70% population directly or indirectly relates with agriculture.Human activities are disturbing the environment.Recent flood is one of its effects.It has disturbed our 33% crops.We started a movement and helped flood victims. We imported tomato, potato and onion from neighbouring countries.
    Pakistan's contribution in climate change is less than 1%.So world organizations should implement the policies decided in COP26 and 190 claimer countries should pay 40 billion$ for controlling the climate change in victim countries.

    I feel sorry for what is happening in nature, all this affects the living beings of humans, animals and plants, and one of the problems Gaza faces towards the climate is accelerating global warming, decreasing rainfall, the spread of extreme weather events, and rising sea levels. As for the climate of Palestine, its location played a major role in shaping the features of the Palestinian climate in terms of the influence of the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the Sinai desert and the Jordanian desert, which made it vulnerable to marine influences. Desert influences in addition to exposure to solar radiation. Palestine is characterized by the diversity of its climatic zones, despite its small area. It belongs to the temperate Mediterranean region, has a tropical climate, and a desert and semi-desert climate.

    In my country Pakistan, we have recently seen heavy destruction by floods due to global warming. To coup up with this serious climatic issue, the government of Pakistan took the initiative of tree plantation across the nation, we are looking forward to plant 1 billion trees which will help to moderate the temperature.

    In Pakistan there over 6.6 million cars, which is a very large amount. A typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. When there is such a large amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, it makes the atmosphere warmer by trapping heat. We have to work on this situation, we can reduce CO2 in the atmosphere by forestation and Carbon mineralization, these are some easy ways to get rid of CO2 from the atmosphere.

    How to stop global warming?
    Global warming is a main cause that effect our climate.6 simple ways to stop global warming :
    1:Drive less
    2:Recycle more
    3:Use less hot water
    4:Avoid products with lot of packaging
    5:Adjust your thermostat
    6:Plant more trees

  • courageous_frog | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 11 Nov 2022

    There are so many major issues affecting our climate but a few which are more serious issues
    1 Deforestation
    A loss of forest area , urbanization and growing population. In this regard we need to plant more and more trees. Our government has launched many plantation drive in this regard, like CLEAN AND GREEN PAKISTAN
    2. Air pollution
    Due to heavy traffic and factorises wastes toxic solids and many liquid particles in air it becomes polluted. This can be reduced by minimizing local vehicles and making electric vehicles.
    3. Water pollution
    water pollution is caused due to toxics materials and human used consumption adds in water. due to this issue it is very harmful to use of this water in cooking process.
    4. land pollution
    Every year our country is increasing with the rate of 2% in land pollution due to addition of waste disposals which causes soil erosion.
    5. Global warming
    It is global issue regarding climate issues affecting in our local area as in the world.

  • attentive_introduction | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 11 Nov 2022

    Pakistan is the most affected country of the world in the terms of climate change .
    it dose not only mean the temperature will rise and our glaciers will melt,this also means that there will be an increase in migration,there will be food security issues,water security is already a problem,so this will cause a domino effect which would eventually affect our regional security. so this won't only remain a climate/environment issue,instead this will become a security issue and a national political issue as well.

  • courageous_frog | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 11 Nov 2022

    According to me our climate affects in many ways our region. The biggest and sad event was flood and affected most of our areas in recent time. Due to this economical issues are increased and also poverty elements.
    Our administrative set up has made some progress in this regard but insufficient. we have to read the changes day by day and we have to arrange a set up in order to face upcoming and alarming situation.
    we can manage this as
    1. Awareness campaigns
    2. seminars
    3. Walks
    4. Socials medias

  • aware_sealion | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 11 Nov 2022

    There are many factors that contribute to climate change, including energy generation by burning fossil fuels and the manufacture of goods. Most of the goods come from fossil fuels such as cement, iron and plastic * and cutting down forests, when they are cut, the percentage of oxygen decreases and the percentage of carbon dioxide increases because forests absorb carbon dioxide and also the use of means of Transport, as these factors have several effects, including high temperatures, storms, increased drought, food shortages, and poverty

  • phenomenal_lion | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 12 Nov 2022

    If we use green energy instead of fossil fuels which release many kind of harmful gases like carbon dioxide and many others gases so we should use green energy like sunlight, we can capture sunlight by using solar panels etc. In my opinion this is a better way to save our planet

  • intelligent_parrot | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 12 Nov 2022

    I live in Pakistan.My country is facing bad situation due to climate change.Recent floods are main examples of these changes. Pakistan's contribution in climate change is less than 1%. Developed countries like China,India,America,Russia, Germany and Japan are contributing the most . Factories release smoke which is harmful for health. When rain water reacts with smoke particles (oxides of sulphur and nitrogen) ,they make acids. Acid remains vapour at high temperature. As the temperature is less due to rain ,it falls on our fertile land which effects the production ability of soil. These are basic problems of my country and resembling situation occurs for flood.

  • glorious_philosophy | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 14 Nov 2022

    am a Pakistani,I think that global warming is the biggest dangerous consequence of climate change and flooding is the biggest consequence of global warming.I think that Pakistan is participating less than 1 percent in global warming,China and America are the most prominent participants in global warming.Now a days UK is also participating actively in global warming because UK has started the use of coal due to the ban of petroleum things from Russia on UK because of "Russia, Ukraine War 2022".So, in my point of view UK has to stop the use of coal in place of petrol and America and China also have to reduce the use of "chlorofluorocarbons"causing agents.

    The countries of the Arab world, including occupied Palestine, have witnessed in recent years that the hot climate leads to dry water and a decrease in the water level. Drought and a global change in the rainfall pattern lead to crop failures and an increase in food prices, which means food insecurity and food deprivation for the poor. This can lead to lifelong impacts, in addition to destroying livelihoods, increasing migration and conflict, and reducing opportunities for children and adolescents. Climate change is the biggest and most visible threat facing humanity. Climate change occurs over long periods of time in a particular region or in the entire world, which is caused by a change in temperature and atmospheric conditions. It can cause a large number of deaths due to high temperatures.

    Here are a few things we could change, in our personal lives, which make a
    massive impact:
    1. switch to renewable energy 2. stop buying and using plastic bottles. take a reusable cup to coffee shops. 3. same goes for plastic bags 4. go vegan. (if that's too hard, go vegan for a few days each week. sounds dumb but makes a massive difference.) 5. save electricity. (turn lights off when you leave the room. don't leave your phone on charge overnight. turn plugs off at the switches AND take the plugs out.) 6. save water. take shorter showers. wash dishes 7. take public transport / walk more/ bike / do
    manually instead of using a dishwasher. (unless of course, your dishwasher is new and more efficient than washing hands manually)
    car shares
    8. don't waste food. start a compost bin if you can - it reduces waste at landfills and gives you good soil :D 9. maybe try growing your own fruit/vegetables. or - get your produce from a farmer's market. 10. boycott unethical companies. (edited now that it's become known to me that boycotting palm oil isn't the best thing)
    11. plant a tree :) 12. switch to ecosia. 13. maybe the most important: USE YOUR VOICE!!! try and influence the people you know, sign petitions, write to your local mp, whatever you can do to make a difference. people really underestimate what their voice can do. even if you manage to persuade your friend to stop buying plastic water bottles or stop driving their car to a shop 5 minutes away, it makes a MASSIVE difference.

    Living and non-living organisms are affected by climate change, whether humans, animals, plants or buildings. When the climate is very bad, full of storms and winds, this negatively affects human and animal health, it destroys the vegetation cover (which leads to heavy economic losses) and the roofs of buildings are broken and destroyed (which leads to their migration from this region to another to save their lives from destruction and extreme cold as well ). But if the climate is beautiful, it affects the psyche of humans and animals, as each of them performs the vital operations for them with comfort and reassurance, and there are no fears of disasters.
    The biggest problem facing our local area It is when the rain falls in abundance, and it becomes similar to floods, pools of rain gather, the water floats at the entrances of the houses, and the rain torrents inside the houses, and the residents are unable to stop this torrential rain, due to the narrowness of the place and the closeness of the houses, because it is a camp area, and the inability of the children to go to their schools (which leads to For losing their lessons in these cold days). And the inability of workers to go to their work due to the bad weather (may be deducted from their salaries). Who is responsible for that? (The municipalities have developed solutions, but to no avail).
    We need high quality infrastructure. Or make dams and wells to collect rain water and benefit from it in times of drought. Repairing water drains (sewage) and increasing their number to accommodate a large amount of water. Conducting awareness campaigns on how to act in the event of climate change for the worse. The use of climate scientists, a feasibility study of meteorology, and an attempt to find solutions to avoid any problems and an attempt to control them.

    The sudden changes in the climate caused the beginnings of an imbalance on the ground, as the delay in rains for some times in our country made us feel a shortage in the stock of water wells, which affected crops and animals
    In other countries, climate changes affected the migration of animals in search of food after the phenomenon of desertification.

    Well, my country faces several problems because of the climate, one of which led to a clear decline in honey production due to the clear climatic changes that occurred this year due to the long winter season, low temperatures, high rainfall, in addition to the delay in the pasture season on which bees depended for their honey production. People who do not own homes and whose homes are made of tents also suffer difficulties in the winter, when rain and wind demolish their tents. In the summer, the temperature is very high, which leads to heatstroke and other diseases.

    The biggest disaster of climate change is the world war, and this has caused a lot of blemishes all over the world. Unfortunately, this is all from human and natural disasters that have occurred in the past few years. Among the causes of global warming that occurred from man: the pollution of cars and trains, as well as the pollution of factories that spread in the air, and the waste of factories that they throw into lakes or any water surface around them. This plant. The rubbish that people throw into the streets and the sea is also a big cause of this kind of climate change. The cause of the natural disaster is the fires that occurred in different countries in the past years. All of these reasons made our ozone layer grow so the solutions to that are: using natural energies such as solar energy, and not dumping any garbage on the street or in the sea, by planting lots of trees and green spaces in all countries. So that we can have good looking environment and clean atmosphere instead of air which is full of pollution also we should try to avoid any fires for safety and clean atmosphere.

I am from North central Nigeria and this year we had an issue of irregular and high rainfall, my state got affected by this event. We are currently suffering from erosion due to high rainfall and cutting down of trees and a little bit of food crisis because some crops got bad because of the high rainfall.
    At the moment we are facing temperature change, we are at 34°C but the normal temperature is supposed to be 31°c , an addition of 3°c to the normal temperature.

(edited now that it's become known to me that boycotting palm oil isn't the best thing)
    11. plant a tree :) 12. switch to ecosia. 13. maybe the most important: USE YOUR VOICE!!! try and influence the people you know, sign petitions, write to your local mp, whatever you can do to make a difference. people really underestimate what their voice can do. even if you manage to persuade your friend to stop buying plastic water bottles or stop driving their car to a shop 5 minutes away, it makes a MASSIVE difference.Sharing goods and services to reduce services. Recycling of beverage containers delivered. Public transport buses are environmentally friendly.

    Living and non-living organisms are affected by climate change, whether humans, animals, plants or buildings. When the climate is very bad, full of storms and winds, this negatively affects human and animal health, it destroys the vegetation cover (which leads to heavy economic losses) and the roofs of buildings are broken and destroyed (which leads to their migration from this region to another to save their lives from destruction and extreme cold as well ). But if the climate is beautiful, it affects the psyche of humans and animals, as each of them performs the vital operations for them with comfort and reassurance, and there are no fears of disasters.
    The biggest problem facing our local area It is when the rain falls in abundance, and it becomes similar to floods, pools of rain gather, the water floats at the entrances of the houses, and the rain torrents inside the houses, and the residents are unable to stop this torrential rain, due to the narrowness of the place and the closeness of the houses, because it is a camp area, and the inability of the children to go to their schools (which leads to For losing their lessons in these cold days). And the inability of workers to go to their work due to the bad weather (may be deducted from their salaries). Who is responsible for that? (The municipalities have developed solutions, but to no avail).
    We need high quality infrastructure. Or make dams and wells to collect rain water and benefit from it in times of drought. Repairing water drains (sewage) and increasing their number to accommodate a large amount of water. Conducting awareness campaigns on how to act in the event of climate change for the worse. The use of climate scientists, a feasibility study of meteorology, and an attempt to find solutions to avoid any problems and an attempt to control them.
