  • I think there should be a Hub discussion post about "Similarities and Differences in climate change around the world" because we need to know our planet is affected through climate change.

      1. I agree because... It's important to think about the Earth 🌎,and what we are doing to the atmosphere.

        1. I agree also with you but I think it will be a great that every politican of each country join together in order to discuss this important problem.

    1. I agree with you,but I think there should be a discussion of Awareness on climate change.

      Most people did not have access to phone and this is a major part of it. This will help in curbing the climate change situation.

      Thanks to topical talk,some of us don't even have ideas of what climate change was. We are very fortunate to be part of these program.

      I think there should be a way to alert the less privileged to know about climate change in our society.

      1. I completely agree with you. If people are interested in the planet and the climate, then they need something to care about. The planet is the origin of life. If the planet is good and free of problems, then it is natural for the animals on it to live a happy life free from every problem that may befall them after the planet, so we have to hold meetings. And discussions that guide the care and preservation of the planets, and watch the astronomer daily and the climate so that we remain in permanent protection ❤🥰🌏

    2. I am agree with you, the people need to respect more the planet 🌎.

    3. That's a great idea! Climate change is a global issue that affects people and environments in different ways around the world, and it's important to understand these similarities and differences in order to develop effective solutions. Creating a Hub discussion post about this topic would be a great opportunity for people to share their perspectives and experiences, and to learn from each other about the impacts of climate change in different regions and communities. Thank you for suggesting this!

    4. I agree with what you are saying because a lot of the time people do not know what is happening and what is being affected by climate change. They think that climate change isn't affecting the world when people are dying because of climate change and lots of animals are dying too. People need to know what is happening so we can stop the climate change before we all go extinct.

      1. You're right! lots of people & animals are dying, but climate changes not so everyday.

  • There should be a discussion about proper parenting because it plays a huge role in molding the behavior and character of children.

    1. I disagree because... no
      You should just educate your child good and if not he is going to fail in class

      1. I am agree with you , i think that the labour of a mom or dad is to educate your children good , so that when he is older he can face the problems that happen to him

    2. I agree because Good parenting aims to develop in children character traits like independence, self-direction, honesty, self-control, kindness, and cooperation . Showing love, support and acceptance, and spending one-on-one time with kids is ranked as the number one parenting competency . Every parent want to give his/her child a best live. Overall Our parents always work hard and face many challenges for give us a smooth life .

  • Can climate change affect our mental health?

    1. When we think of all the impacts of climate change on our environment, this can create anxiety and therefor affect our mental health.

      1. I agree with you . Therefore, we should train ourselves to control our feelings and use our mental abilities in solving this problem , so we should try to change the power of worry into a power of work.

      2. I agree because...
        because your words are correct, and I learned this in the school club for science, and there is a subconscious mind that is the deep thinking that a person thinks.

      3. I'm not sure about this because... when we do think about the impacts of climate change on our environment, it does create anxiety and affects our mental health but does climate change do anything good to our environment? People go hungry due to the loss of crops, People die due to floods and living creatures go extinct. I agree with your point passionate brain but I think we should find ways to reduce climate change so our environments will be impacted positively and our mental health remains intact.

        1. You make a valid point. While it is true that some people may feel anxious or overwhelmed when they think about the negative impacts of climate change, it is important to remember that climate change itself does not have any positive effects on the environment.

          The effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and loss of biodiversity, can have devastating consequences for both human and non-human life on our planet. As you mentioned, it is crucial that we find ways to reduce climate change so that we can mitigate these negative impacts and work towards a more sustainable future.

          Taking action to address climate change can also have positive effects on mental health. By working towards a shared goal of protecting the environment, individuals can feel a sense of purpose and fulfillment. Additionally, many sustainable practices, such as spending time in nature, can have positive effects on mental health.

          Overall, while it is important to acknowledge the negative impacts of climate change, it is crucial that we focus on taking action to reduce our carbon footprint and protect our planet.

    2. Yes, of course, climate change affects the mind because it affects our physical health. Thus, with the deterioration of physical health, our minds will be affected.

      So I hope that we will find a solution as soon as possible to the problem of climate change

      1. I agree, climate change situation affected so many people. Yes it will put so many life at risk. But I think there should be a discussion of Awareness on climate change.

        Most people did not have access to quality information and this is a major part of it. Quality information will help spread awareness on the emergence of climate change.

        We get to learn about climate change in some of our science classes. I'm grateful that it's a topic for discussion topical talk and the educational foundation. Some of us didn't even have ideas of what climate change was.

        I think there should be a way to alert the less privileged to know about climate change in our society.

    3. I believe that if the climate keeps heating up our mental health could get impacted for example in the situation where the air is so warm we wouldn’t be able to go outside and would have to stay at home under the air conditioning therefore creating isolation

      1. I agree with you: Climate change negatively affects our lives and spreads poverty due to lack of economic growth, for example in our country when the weather is rainy and windy, etc.. Not everyone goes to work or school to keep us safe, as this harms economic growth. Also, climate change makes us think more, and this harms our mental health. I hope that we will find a solution to this problem

    4. Some people in Gaza have bad and difficult economic conditions. As soon as they think about winter, their moods complain because the situation of their homes is difficult, and in winter rain falls on them.
      But some people suffer from another aspect, which is the constant illness in the winter, and this is a small part of people’s suffering, and this is what makes their mind always anxious and thinking, and this affects the health of the mind.

    5. Climate change produces hotter temperature and air pollution which can affect our mental health.

    6. Yes, of course . I completely agree . I think the majority of people know the bad effects of the climate change in the side of health , farming, animals, weather,.. etc. That knowledge leads people to think all the time of cancers, lack of food and starvation, floods,and the future of their children 's lives.I think all of these problems and thoughts lead to have unhealthy mentality full of anxiety and stress .As a personal experience,I can't sleep well because I always have dreams of huge floods cover my city which is near the shore of the sea . Really,I hope 🙏 that the earth will recover.

    7. I absolutely agree . Yes, climate change can affect our mental health in various ways. The impacts of climate change, such as extreme weather events, natural disasters, food and water shortages, and displacement, can lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health issues.
      For example, people who have experienced extreme weather events such as hurricanes, floods, and wildfires may suffer from PTSD, depression, and anxiety. Also, people who live in areas with regular flooding or droughts may experience chronic stress due to the constant threat of losing their homes, crops, or livelihoods.

    8. Climate change and increasing temperatures have been shown to increase levels of allergens and pollutants present in the air, leading to worsened air quality. Emerging evidence suggests that poor air quality can negatively impact mental health, in particular depression and anxiety.

    9. We as humans think about all the influences that affect the climate in our environment , And also that will lead to fear and anxiety It also affects mental health.

    10. I think that climate change can affect mental health, since thinking too much about what can happen to the plant can generate any type of disorder.
      It can also generate thoughts about "I'm not doing well" or "I'm not going to be able to leave the earth in good condition for other generations."
      Also, there are people who are very empathetic (like me) who may think that if we don't take care of the oceans, the other generations will not have places to go bathe and things like that.
      There are people who decide to fish, so if we start to dirty their work space, that can generate depression for not being able to get a job with a good salary.

    11. I agree because since it's so hot, it can bring our moods and health decrease throughout the years/months. So in a couple years from now, the population will be smaller than before and everyone will be struggling mentally and physically. Illnesses would be more common and more frequent rain and storms would begin to happen.

      1. It is true that extreme heat can have negative impacts on both our physical and mental health, and that climate change could lead to more frequent and severe heat waves, storms, and other natural disasters. These events can also have economic and social impacts, leading to displacement, loss of property, and increased healthcare costs.

        However, it is important to note that climate change is a complex issue that affects different regions and populations in different ways. Some areas may experience more frequent rainfall, for example, which could have its own set of challenges and opportunities.

        Regardless, it is important that we take action to mitigate the impacts of climate change and work towards a more sustainable future. This includes reducing greenhouse gas emissions, promoting renewable energy, and investing in climate adaptation measures. By doing so, we can help ensure a healthier and more prosperous future for ourselves and future generations.

    12. I think that climate change can affect a person's mental health. I think this because hotter or warmer weather can cause a person to be frustrated or angered. This change in weather can also cause them to have anxiety or stress.

    13. YES, climate change and related disaster can cause anxiety -related responses as well as chronic and severe mental health disorders . Flooding and extended drought have been related with upraising levels of anxiety , depression and post -traumatic stress disorders.

  • I think there should be a Hub discussion post about Global warming. I think we should discuss this topic because it has a negative impact on the environment Because it causes drought in the environment and prevents rain, and it may be a cause of high temperatures and death of plants

    1. I think that if everybody tries to save the earth by using less transports, recycling ect...
      There will be a HUGE impact on the Earth.

      1. Also stopping factory smoke and using renewable energies instead of modern energies. And working on growing a large amount of plants. ßy that we will protect environment.

      2. Yes, I believe that this change will bring about a huge change in the earth for the better and to ensure a longer life for humanity, as it will give a better, pure and unpolluted life, and many positives

    2. I agree with you, because there are many damages to global warming, such as: increasing health problems and rising sea levels, but it also has benefits such as: reducing freezing cold waves, and allowing the way in the Northwest Corridor more time for maritime trade, so in my opinion it is an interesting and wonderful topic to discuss it .

    3. Warmer temperatures over time are changing weather patterns and disrupting the usual balance of nature. This poses many risks to human beings and all other forms of life on Earth
      Nearly all land areas are seeing more hot days and heat waves; 2020 was one of the hottest years on record. Global warming increase heat-related illnesses and can make it more difficult to work and move around. Wildfires start more easily and spread more rapidly when conditions are hotter.

    4. I am agree with you , because I think that global warming is bad for the environment and for the people , because of the problems that this caused.
      So I think that if everyone take care about the planet , we are going to improve this .

    5. I agree because earth day has some kind of relationship with this problem. Climate change is the long-term heating of earth's surface observed since the pre-industrial period (between 1850 and 1900) due to human activities, primarily fossil fuel burning, which increases heat-trapping greenhouse gas levels in Earth's atmosphere. This is something that affects the earth, they should definitely add this topic!

  • think there should be a Hub discussion post about the impact of individual actions on the environment because it is important to understand that even small changes in our daily lives can make a difference in protecting the planet. By discussing and sharing practical ways to reduce our carbon footprint and live more sustainably, we can inspire and motivate others to do the same. Additionally, it's crucial to recognize the power of collective action and how it can drive meaningful change in addressing global environmental issues.

  • I think that the third law will not be compatible with everyone.From my point of view, imagine the world's population is about 8 billion, and each person will take 10 trips. It will have a huge impact on the environment, so I prefer 5 trips instead of 10, so it will be even better. I have a solution, we discussed in the technology chapter that electricity can be generated through water, and according to my study about it, it is very environmentally friendly, but it does not require a large amount of capital

    1. I disagree because... limiting travel to only five trips per person, may not be practical or feasible in certain situations, such as emergency situations. Furthermore, while it's true that excessive travel can have a negative impact on the environment, it's important to consider that not all travel is for leisure or recreational purposes. Some travel is necessary for work, education, or medical reasons, and limiting the number of trips per person could have a detrimental effect on individuals' ability to access these essential services.It's commendable that the you are exploring environmentally-friendly solutions such as generating electricity through water, but it's important to also consider the practicality and feasibility of such solutions on a large scale. Capital and infrastructure are often necessary to implement these types of solutions, and they may not always be available or accessible to everyone.

      If flying were limited to only 5 trips per person, there could be several potential consequences, such as:

      Limiting access to essential services: People who need to travel for work, education, medical reasons, or emergencies may not be able to do so if they have already used up their allotted 5 trips. This could have a negative impact on their ability to access essential services.

      Reduced economic activity: Travel and tourism are major drivers of economic activity, and limiting the number of flights could have a negative impact on the economy, particularly in regions that rely heavily on tourism.

      Decreased cultural exchange: Traveling provides opportunities for people to experience different cultures and ways of life, and limiting travel could reduce cultural exchange and understanding between people from different regions and countries.

      Reduced opportunities for personal growth and development: Traveling can broaden one's horizons and provide opportunities for personal growth and development. Limiting travel could deprive people of these opportunities.

      Increased pressure on other modes of transportation: If flying were limited, people may resort to other modes of transportation such as cars, buses, or trains. This could increase traffic congestion, carbon emissions, and other negative impacts on the environment.

      Overall, while limiting travel could have some environmental benefits, it's important to consider the potential negative consequences and to explore alternative solutions that balance the need for travel with environmental sustainability.

      1. A well reasoned answer, flowing_chocolate. If you think limiting travel is not a feasible option for reducing our carbon footprint, what would you suggest instead?
