We have all been taught about climate change and what it has done to our planet over the years. Our planet was not always like this. It used to be a heavenly body that was overflowing with life and vegetation. But over the years icebergs have melted, species have been endangered and there is a hole in the ozone layer.

Most people think that we are just finding out about the effects of climate change but that is not the case. We have known about it for a long time now, but not enough action was taken to combat it. People had forseen the effects of climate change but they were hindered from taking much action. here are some of the reasons why:

1. Some influencial people get their income from unclean energy sources such as coal and they were not willing to give it up.

2. They just could not spread much awareness because people simply ignored it.

3. Everyone thought the earth could endure it.

4. A few people who knew about it chose to do nothing about it.

5. Some politicians did not adhere to it because they believed it would mess with the economy.

Well despite all the years that we have wasted, i believe we still have a chance to save our beloved planet. It could be as simple as planting a new tree or reducing our carbon footprint. We could still join together and save one of our most prized possession. Now that we have evolved further, we have found other ways we can solve our problems without hurting our planet. We can use clean energy sources, electric cars and hold seminars to educate people on climate change. There are a lot of things we can do. We should not give up yet, we might have wasted a lot of time but we can still make it if we try. As young people we can make a huge difference and get other people to help us too.

In conclusion, i think that we still have a chance. It may take us a while and a lot of hard work, but we can still save our beloved planet.

  • I agree with you in everything you said, but there is a more important and complex problem, which is the problem of throwing waste into the seas that pollutes the water and may lead to the death of many fish, and therefore the fish stocks in the seas will decrease because of this problem, so we must solve this problem in several ways Among these methods is the provision of waste chains everywhere and the creation of awareness leaflets for the population about the danger of this waste on water pollution, the development of laws not to throw waste into the sea and the imposition of fines for those who violate these laws, and therefore I believe that it will reduce the dumping of waste in the sea and reduce water pollution

  • Thank you for sharing your opinion on Earth Day and the importance of preserving the environment. I completely agree with your perspective.

    Earth Day serves as a reminder for us to reflect on our impact on the planet and take steps to protect it. It's an opportunity for individuals and communities to come together and make a positive difference in the world. The actions you mentioned, such as promoting renewable energy, improving energy efficiency, reducing waste, and supporting sustainable practices, are crucial in mitigating the challenges posed by climate change.

    Climate change is a pressing issue that affects various aspects of our lives, including the environment, health, economy, and food security. By taking proactive measures to address climate change, such as adopting sustainable energy sources, practicing eco-friendly habits, and advocating for environmentally conscious policies, we can contribute to mitigating its negative impacts.

    Education and awareness are key in driving change. By sharing information and facts about climate change, environmental preservation, and sustainable practices, we can inspire others to take action and make informed decisions that benefit the planet. Encouraging recycling, responsible waste management, and the conservation of natural resources can contribute significantly to preserving the environment for future generations.

    Ultimately, Earth Day serves as a powerful reminder that every individual and community can play a part in creating a sustainable future. Through collective efforts and individual actions, we can make a positive impact on the environment, protect biodiversity, and strive for a healthier and more sustainable planet.

  • I totally agree because we still have a chance to fix our planet cause their is problem that comes with no solution. in my country climate change is a huge problem and this is why. My country has a bit of a problem in flowing climate laws for example some of us do not recycle and we also burn things. I belive we can fix this problem now and in the future but my point is we still have a chance in fixing our planet
