    1. You can give an awareness to your family and frds about not to leave out many carbon footprints in the atmosphere. So that the earth will stop getting heated from the carbon footprints.

  • We sometimes hear about climate change. But the question is, what areas are most negatively affected by climate change?? And how do you deal with these problems?

  • What are you doing to face the dangers of climate change?

  • Hello dear Clover
    I admire your personality and your success
    My question to you, being a climate activist and working in many institutions and companies, what is the purpose of Earth Day for you?
    What is your feeling when you do such great deeds to our planet ,and even to all humanity?

  • Hi Clover Hogan,
    It's very great to know about you .You inspires me a lot.I would like to know the reason why Earth day is celebrated in a particular day (April 22) and how you will be celebrating the Earth Day?

  • Hi Clover 3
    I watched your TED talk twice today and it is really encouraging and full of enthuthiasm. You said " with great resposibilty comes great power". It's a very inspiring words.
    My question is ..

    How could any person get rid of despair and denial and and face his/her responsibility if he/she live in a country that face many climate changes and suffer from many losses? I believe we can and you did it! Tell us your journey from despair and denial to hope and action!

  • How many years will it take the climate to recover and become a temperate climate? And after it gets better, will our planet be free of problems?

  • What are the measures you follow in your country to preserve the climate ?

  • As an expert, which country do you think is the best in following laws?

  • Hello Clover,
    I feel so glad to ask an expert in such a young age like you.  So my question for you is:In which year do you expect that there will be no pertol or diesel cars and that we'll be able to use flying cars working on batteries or the solar system?

    1. I agree with you in your question, as the source of energy for cars that operate on solar energy is a free and renewable source that saves money for solar energy. Solar energy is the best environmentally friendly, as it does not require any maintenance and reconstruction procedures. Because of its dependence on batteries, it retains its solar energy for several hours and days. We all dream of a car with these specifications

  • IS it possible in the future to replace coal- fired power plants with solar and wind power plants?

    1. That's an interesting question polite_fox. Do you think it is feasible? How do you think it might be implemented better?

      1. We can do this by reducing the prices of electricity generated from solar energy, wind plants and hydroelectric sources to compete with the prices of energy generated from power plants that operate with non- renewable energy sources

  • Does climate change have an effect on fish stock?

  • Will climate change in the future cause some people to migrate from their places of residence because they are exposed to the risks of climate change?

  • Hey dear Clover,
    I'm in the 9th grade and I took a lesson in the English subject about overfishing and its dangers, so I thought that it may have an effect on climate change but how?

  • I learned before that climate change threatens the existance of some continents especially those which overlook the frozen oceans. Do you think that some continents will be flooded because of climate change ?

  • I want to ask you how you can progress from working groups in the continuity of sustainability

  • Hi Clover Hogan,

    I have a few questions for you, and I'm glad that the Topical Talk gave me a chance to ask you some questions. In 2022, I heard a short story about you on the internet, and I'm inspired by you and your organization Force of Nature.

    What do you think are some of the biggest challenges facing the climate movement today, and how do you believe we can overcome them?

    How can young people get involved in the fight against climate change, and what can we do to make a difference?

    What role do you see businesses playing in the transition to a more sustainable and equitable future, and how can we encourage more companies to prioritize sustainability?

    What are some of the most innovative and promising solutions you've seen for addressing climate change, and how can we scale these up to make a bigger impact?

    How do you stay motivated and hopeful in the face of such a daunting global challenge, and what advice would you give to others who feel discouraged about the state of the planet? I am too worried about the pollution and the carbon footprint that we are leaving on our home planet. As you said, "We are the plague in our home planet," I strongly agree with this statement.

    What are your thoughts on the role of governments and policymakers in addressing climate change, and how can we hold them accountable for taking bold action?

    When I discuss global warming and pollution with my friends and family, they often tell me to mind my own business instead of worrying about climate change. But even if I explain that we won't be able to own a business if climate change goes uncontrollably high, they just do not care.

    Thank you!

  • Will the climate change in the coming years? And if it changes, will it have an important impact on society and the individual? How is that?

  • Hey, I want to inquire about a question. Will new diseases appear due to climate change in the future? Can scientists confirm the validity of speech how?

    1. Hi Powerful cranberry,
      That is a nice question, i would like to add a point, yes their may be new diseases in future due to climate change because their may be cold or hot temperatures and their may be different weather conditions in future for example windy weather, sunny weather, cloudy weather, rainy weather, humidity, temperature , foggy weather, moisty weather which may not favour human bodies.
      thank you

  • I really liked you since you are at a young age but you think the thinking of sane adults so I think the question will be what conditions did you go through until you got here?  And would all young people's thinking be affected if they were exposed to the same circumstances?  If not, what are the best ways to create a generation interested in the environment and society?  I hope you will answer my question because I am really interested in changing those around me for the better from my colleagues and my family

    Please answer me to satisfy my scientific curiosity

  • I am curious about your profession, since you are a climate activist, what is your impact on society, and what is your commitment to sustainability in the future?.
    I would like to know your opinion on solving the problem of the climate crisis, By that, I mean by that the solution that addresses the root and the basis of the problem not just a symbolic solution. And what is your point of view towards the new generation, and do you think that the solution to this problem lies with them, given that they are a source of for new ideas.

  • There are many actions that harm the environment that are difficult to do without in our lives, such as eating meat and cheese. Can you give me and my friends advice on how to do without them??

    1. Hi noble clementine,
      I agree that it is a good point, and i wanted to add on something , yes people make harmful actions in the environment such as deforestation, land clearing , overgrazing and then land, air, water and sound pollution. then their are some things that are difficult to do without human existance such as eating meat , making cheese, milking cows. But their are ways of living without them ; by eating veggies, and fruits. by drinking clean water. by eating traditional foods.

  • Hello, Mrs. Clover, I think there are many ways to try to filter sewage, but I don't think there is an effective result because it is close to my school. There is a little big pond, but sewage is poured into it and the smell spreads when it rains or the amount of sewage increases.
    Do you have any suggestion that you can help me with?

  • Hi i need to know.
    Why does the world not want to exceed the increase in temperature on Earth by 1.5 degrees?

  • Hello
    It gives me great pleasure to ask you this question, Mr. Clover Frankly, I agree with you about the danger of climate change to this human race. For me, I feel that it is a monster that grows as people become more reckless and gets closer and closer to destroying us. My question to you is: Is there a logical way to limit the progress of this monster and eliminate it before it is too late?

  • Hi there, I'm really happy to have this chance to learn more from you. One of the ideas that come to my mind to solve the problem of the plastic bags that we can use some materials that can be biodegradable like the ones that found in the washing substances which used with the full-automatic washing machines. This surrounding plastic for the washing material disappear when it is mixed with water, can we use them to produce the plastic bags which are harmful to the environment and Lasting for very long years because it is none biodegradable, what do you think?

  • As students, we presented our opinion regarding the issue of climate change and what is happening to the ozone layer, and we presented solutions as well, but it is not surprising that you have the best, so what do you think and your solutions to this issue

  • We are feeling for all these climate changes but a big difference can only be seen when we have a huge group of people. What can be done to create an awareness among people because they are not understanding even if we explain the consequences??

    1. Interesting point diplomatic_river. Could prioritising this at school or the work-place help raise awareness on a large-scale?

      1. Yes I think that this is possible. If we make this as a mandatory habit in all places not letting anyone to litter,make them to plant atleast one tree. If we start teaching the young children from now on, that would become as their habit and habits can't be changed easily. If we thech the future generation and explain them the importance of the maintenance of environment from their young age they will follow it and keep their environment in a clean. And as we all know that social media has power to spread anything across the globe so we can even use that power to create an awareness about the environment.

  • Mrs. Clover, I love an environment and I care about the environment, and when I grow up, I want to be an assistant member of an environment. I want to be like you, but there is an issue that puzzled me. I see many companies that I prefer, but I am not sure whether they are against. An environment or not, is it using animals for experiments on it or not? This is something that annoys me very much, and there are many companies that use many things, such as campaigns, to show that they are with an environment, but I am shocked that they are against an environment. This is a disturbing thing, and we cannot determine what we can buy. To check whether companies are environmentally friendly or not

    Air pollution has played a role in the current "Covid-19" pandemic. This is because studies conducted during the first months of the pandemic outbreak showed direct correlations between air pollution levels and increased susceptibility to disease and death from it. So my understanding from this is that it could be that air pollution enhanced the disease particles and was the cause of it... Is that correct?
