  • I wasn't able to attend the live talk but from watching the video I will like to look in ow climate change is affecting us what happens if nothing is done to save the climate and the earth at large. For example climate change is an issue affecting us in the world greatly b causing air pollution, disease, extreme weather events, forced displacement, pressures on mental health, and increased hunger and poor nutrition in the world. It is also displacing the ecosystem and causing pollution harming animals and livestock, due to climate change so many organisms and living things are going extinct. soon if no one pays attention to climate change and the methods and systems set in place to prevent it we may not have an earth in the future.

    1. You've highlighted some important points about the impacts of climate change on our planet and its inhabitants. Climate change is indeed a pressing issue that poses significant risks to various aspects of our lives and the Earth as a whole.

      If nothing is done to address climate change, the consequences could be severe. Here are some potential outcomes:

      Increased extreme weather events: Climate change is linked to more frequent and intense heatwaves, storms, hurricanes, floods, and droughts. These events can cause extensive damage to infrastructure, property, and ecosystems, leading to economic losses and human suffering.

      Rising sea levels: Global warming contributes to the melting of glaciers and ice caps, leading to rising sea levels. This can result in coastal erosion, inundation of low-lying areas, and the displacement of communities living in these vulnerable regions.

      Threats to human health: Climate change can impact public health in various ways. It can exacerbate air pollution, leading to respiratory problems and increased incidences of diseases such as asthma. Changes in temperature and precipitation patterns can also affect the spread of vector-borne diseases like malaria and dengue fever.

      Food and water insecurity: Changes in temperature and rainfall patterns can affect agricultural productivity, leading to reduced crop yields and food shortages. Additionally, changes in water availability can lead to water scarcity, affecting both agriculture and access to clean drinking water.

      Loss of biodiversity: Climate change disrupts ecosystems and habitats, endangering numerous plant and animal species. Rising temperatures, habitat destruction, and altered ecosystems can lead to the extinction of species and disrupt the delicate balance of ecosystems, impacting their overall health and function.

      Economic and social disruptions: The consequences of climate change can lead to economic instability, social unrest, and political tensions. Displaced populations, resource scarcity, and the need for adaptation measures can strain societies and exacerbate existing inequalities.

      To prevent these outcomes, it is crucial to take action to mitigate and adapt to climate change. This includes reducing greenhouse gas emissions, transitioning to renewable energy sources, implementing sustainable land and water management practices, conserving natural resources, and promoting international cooperation to address this global challenge.

      By recognizing the urgency of climate change and implementing effective strategies, we can strive to mitigate its impacts, protect the Earth's ecosystems, and secure a sustainable future for generations to come.

    2. I agree with you because climate pollution is a dangerous thing that affects a lot, such as the environment and people, but I want to ask a question, is forced displacement a solution to the climate problem?

  • As I watched the video about Earth Day,I realized the magnitude of climate change and its impacts on our planet. The thought that our beautiful home might not survive if we don't take action now is terrifying.

    Climate change isn't just a problem for future generations; it's affecting us right now. The air we breathe is polluted, leading to respiratory diseases. Extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and intense, destroying homes and infrastructure. People are being displaced from their homes as sea levels rise and natural disasters strike.

    If we don't act now, the consequences will be dire. We can't keep turning a blind eye to this issue. It's time we take responsibility for our actions and make changes to save our planet. We owe it to ourselves, future generations, and all the other species that call Earth their home.

    Let's work together to combat climate change and create a sustainable future for all. Remember, "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."

  • Today, after school hours, I discussed with our teacher and classmates the issue of hazardous electronic waste, which is considered one of the chronic problems that severely affect the economy, health, and the environment. Twelve in the European Closme project and their role in defining new measures for the metals in batteries and this was previously impossible. I was able to apply a technique that allows obtaining lithium and graphite separately, and it is also possible to recover nickel, copper and cobalt. Obtaining lithium and graphite is a very important step, these two The two materials are rare and the demand for them is increasing, and their price is fantastic. I hope to join a mission to that company to implement this project in my country.

  • I was hoping to discuss with you directly, but I was not able to attend, but I want to discuss some solutions that may benefit the world in order to maintain a good climate because the climate is necessary for everything. What if
    1 Reducing factories
    2 Use of solar energy
    3 Recycle things and reward those who recycle more things (to encourage environmental preservation)
    4 Reduce the amount of plastic
    5 Putting materials that decompose and benefit the plant in the soil
    I hope that we will spread these ideas to keep the world safe and sound

  • I apologise for not being able to attend the live lesson. The discussion sounded really interesting!
    Question: How is climate change affecting my country?

    Climate change is having a significant impact on Nigeria, with the country experiencing a range of negative effects. One of the most significant impacts is an increase in temperature, which has led to more frequent and severe heatwaves. This has resulted in a range of health problems, including dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heatstroke. Another major impact is an increase in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events, such as floods and droughts. Additionally, climate change is affecting Nigeria's coastal regions, with rising sea levels leading to erosion and flooding.

    Finally, climate change is exacerbating existing social and economic challenges, such as food scarcity and poverty, as well as conflicts over resources such as water and land. Addressing this issue will require a concerted effort from both the Nigerian government and the international community.
