    I have picked the story about Islands disappear under the sea
    My new headline would say Global warming has led to the disappearance of the islands under the sea, and this indicates an increase in global warming, and it is possible for the islands where there are people to go below the sea, because the rate of the water level increases dramatically
    This would be a good headline because The rate of water is increasing dramatically, and this will cause many islands to sink, and this is because of us, so we must know the damages of our mistakes so that we know how to correct them, and also because of the increase in the water level, the countries themselves must drown, so the necessary precautions must be taken from now on .

      But do you not think that it is necessary to explain even a few of the reasons for the rise in the water level in order for people to be convinced of the seriousness of the situation, such as:
      The rise in temperatures led to the melting of the ice, an increase in the proportion of water and a change in the tides
      And other reasons
      I would like to ask you, there are a lot of islands that sank under water a long time ago, so what is the reason?? Is it a normal phenomenon?? Or has global warming been around for a very long time, and we have worked to increase it?

        Great question, compassionate_explanation! Where could you look to find the answer? Just a quick fact-check: the land does not "sink", rather the sea levels rise and flood over the land.

      From my point of view, when I read your title, I felt a positive energy, but the title must contain a sad energy
      Show the extent of our negative impact on the poles
      Don't you agree with me?

        I agree with you, the bad side of the story should be shown, for example, the title should be the eradication of the polar world or the end of the polar world or something like the idea of ​​the topic when we write this title the reader will think that he will read about polar life and its advantages and wonderful things, but he will be surprised when he finds the content is different The story is about the death of polar bears and about the current ills of the polar world.

    Here's your answer:

    I have picked the story about Hottest day ever recorded
    My new headline would say The earth is burning
    This would be a good headline because ‏‎It expresses the dangerous slight rise of the Earth's climate and how this effect is caused by a small flame, but it will lead to the burning of the earth Fire can eat and damage everything around it, as rising heat will lead to the death of man from high heat, poverty and hunger. It will also lead to the death of many animals as a result of continuous fires in the forests As well as the destruction of the soil as a result of drought All this means the end of life on earth and the fire ends the validity of the earth by increasing the temperature

      smart_glacier's comment 10 Feb 2022

      Frankly, I will comment on your comment
      When you say (the earth is burning), the reader will say in his mind how the earth is burning?! He looks out of his room window and sees everything normal, or searches for the news magazine that he follows and also sees everything normal, and says this news is false and I do not want to follow it.
      So my advice to you is (so that your title should be attractive and interesting and not be too exaggerated, because when I heard your new title I was very afraid, imagine that I was afraid knowing that it was just a title, so how would the reader of the news title react?! So know that our goal is to draw the attention of readers news and not scare them..)

      smart_glacier's comment 17 Feb 2022

      I do not think that this title will attract the reader because when reads the hottest day he will think that the day very hot and when he comes out he will not find what you are saying is true, so I think that you write scorching days coming so that you talk about the future and the climate in general. The title should always indicate the content.

  • British Council.jpg exuberant_snow | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    09 Feb 2022

    The story will be about global warming and the title will be “Global Warming - The Killer of Mankind.” I chose this title because when a person reads the title, he will feel danger, and the matter is very dangerous. If the temperature increases, the number of plants will decrease and all plants may die, and plants are the basis of human food. And this will kill the human beingGradually, humanity may disappear.If a person preserves the earth and does not use materials that raise the temperature of the planet, such as snow animals, this problem can be solved by allocating specific places for the melting of snow and making warehouses for them, and after its melting, throwing water into the seas, this helps to protect the planet

    4. ISLANDS DISAPPEAR IN THE MALDIVES: Climate change horror. This headline would be good for the article as it would immediately strike shock and horror as having islands disappear in bold is very eye-catching. It also strikes shock because it is not often that islands completely disappear under the ocean and this will make reader want to read on to see what happened. By including 'climate change horror' will also make the reader read the article as climate change is such a big issue that is widely known so they'll be more likely to read it as it is a topic they'll want to know more about or are more familiar with it.

There is no a safe place that protects animals, which leads to their extinction. The same is the case with trees in forests, which will make the problem grow.

    This would be a good headline because think that the reader of the news will feel shocked and want to know what is happening, because the islands are among the most beautiful places in the world and the places that tourists prefer because of the picturesque tourist and marine nature, where we find the island of Mali, whose waters embrace many demon fish, while Rasdhoo Island is one of the rare places around The world in which there is one of the rarest fish, which is the hammerfish, and one of the things that makes these islands one of the most special places around the world are the stunning beaches that sparkle in the evening, which fascinate our eyes and we prefer to visit them more than once.

    And the title will be _Global warming is a ticking time bomb- and I chose this title because I find it attractive, as it will attract the reader to know why global warming is a ticking time bomb. Also, this title gives us a sense of the danger of the content and the need to read the content of this newspaper, which increases the reader's awareness and awareness of the danger of global warming and will avoid everything that causes this tragic matter.

    I have picked the story about Islands disappear under the sea
    My new headline would say 
    Bermuda Triangle again
    This would be a good headline because ‏Global warming and the melting of ice will make Canada an underwater country that holds stories and secrets that no one will know, as in the Bermuda Triangle, where it is impossible to know what it hides from the secrets And that its disappearance will remain a curse in the world of humanity, how an entire island disappeared as a result of human neglect and lack of attention to the environment

    I have picked the story: Extreme rainfall causes flooding
    My new headline would say: The Tide Has turned...
    This would be a good headline because:
    With climate change, there are going to be new experiences the like of which we have never seen before which will seriously effect our current lifestyle. This example of massively extreme flooding would be a direct example of the changing of the tide in regards for our slowly heating planet. These sort of events are often caused by the melting of polar ice caps so that the tide, the ocean tide, is literally turning. We have to prevent this and news stories are often the best way to spread the word about news and the world.

    You've picked a story about "The Hottest Day Ever Recorded."
    My appropriate title for this story will be “Severe Danger” because it will represent the most severe climate change for humans and wildlife, and the extreme heat will be limited to some feet at the end of this century and will cause coastal erosion, drought, lack of rain, and the continued destruction of forests through desertification, and we will release carbon dioxide instead of absorbing it. And it will affect the agricultural economy significantly because the soil will become dry and not suitable for cultivation.

    I chose a story that causes heavy rain to cause floods
    I put the new title for it is the occurrence of floods causing environmental problems
    Because the occurrence of floods causes many problems for people, it can hinder them from their work, it can disrupt the children to go from school, and cause big problems, including the arrival of water to the homes and the arrival of moisture to the homes, which makes it difficult for people to live.

    My new headline would say The islands of the world become the lost Atlantis
    This would be a good headline because We must all have heard one day about the lost city of Atlantis, which some think is the inspiration of the imagination of the philosopher Aristotle. These islands are just a fantasy and an illusion of a world where, after the temperatures increased, the ice melted and the water level in the oceans rose, which led to the threat of the islands being inundated and some coastal cities. The human race will be extinct from life, so we must hurry to solve this serious problem

    The reason for choosing this idea is that, in my opinion, the environment has sufficiently endured what we did to it and it is time for the environment to take revenge on us.

And agricultural lands, and this means the lack of plants and the recent drought of the lands, after which there is conflict between animals over food, and their number decreases, as some of them kill each other, and also the conflicts between humans increase over food, so both become like angry beasts, and they end each other’s breed in one way or another.

And spontaneous ignition and volcanic eruptions. As for the second group, they are fires caused by humans through arson, cigarettes thrown in nature, and neglected and uncontrolled fires. Forest fires completely destroy the ecosystems that live inside them, where only ashes remain and lead to the death and migration of living creatures inside them. To other places, as well as the fires cause the destruction of many residential areas adjacent to the forests, most countries, in cooperation with the bodies to combat natural disasters and the United Nations, seek to resist forest fires and limit their spread through rapid intervention units to help extinguish forest fires.
    This would be a good headline because Because it covered most of the information that the reader might need (their causes, damages, and how to reduce them)

My address will be good because it is of great importance to the continuity of the life of living creatures, as it is important for humans and animals. Also, there are problems for this story. A large number of people died due to the heavy rains, with the occurrence of floods, torrents and closures The main roads and there is a solution to this problem is that the heads of state issue a law for a specific time to leave their places when the rains fall and this will lead to a decrease in the death rate..

    The story will be about global warming and the title will be “Greenhouse Activated Gases” because global warming has greatly contributed to the emergence of *chlorofluorocarbons*. This gas is one of the very dangerous gases that cause severe erosion in the ozone layer, the layer that protects the earth from harmful sunlight . And also the high percentage of carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and methane. Those gases which are called as the greenhouse gases. These gases greatly affect the occurrence of global warming, because they absorb the infrared rays of the sun. Its percentage increases in the atmosphere, which clearly affects the Earth's climate.

The Earth is getting warmer.” Sea level rise, land sinking, coastal erosion, and mood storms are facts of life for Korol. As temperatures rise and the ice melts, more water flows into the seas from glaciers and ice caps, and the ocean waters heat up and expand in size. This combination of influences has played a major role in raising the average global sea level by four to eight inches, it affects the air, animals, land and humans....the Earth.

    * You choose the wildfire rage. * The new title (fire arrows and holes), meaning that fires are successive storms, negatively affecting the environment, resulting from the trapping of excess heat rays from space in the atmosphere layer, which leads to the outbreak of fire in places close to the atmosphere.

    my answer is
    About drowning islands in the sea
    My title for the story is The Near End of the World. I think it's a good title because we all know that climate change is happening across the world, but we rarely see its effects. On the other hand, most reports tend to reveal future events before they happen, hoping to give researchers enough time to prepare. or mitigate future damage.
    But it's not the same in the Pacific Ocean. Australian researchers recently noted that five of the Solomon Islands have disappeared due to rising sea levels.
    Yes, it's like a disastrous TV movie. Five islands have been swallowed up by the sea, and researchers say climate change is to blame.

What next??? We must stop to the point of no return!! And to fix what we spoiled..isn't everyone affected by climatic changes?? Everyone is preparing to find solutions before it is too late!!!!!

    You chose the story of the forest fires
    My new address will say it's hard to live in the shadow of burning forests
    That would be a good title because I chose this one because it's interesting because burning forests will destroy the ecosystems that live within them, only ash remains and causes the organisms inside to die and die. Migration to places. Also, there will be many problems which I will mention to you first. The smoke from burning forests causes breathing problems and inhalation of fire smoke and ash from these fires, which damages the lungs and blood vessels in the body, weakens the immune system and increases the chance of respiratory diseases. Second, it's less trees, and that's too bad because burning trees means more carbon dioxide and less oxygen production, and that's one of the factors of climate change. The third harm is its effect on animals. Burning forests negatively affects the lives of animals, because some animals will not be able to obtain shelter and food, and therefore threaten the extinction of some animals due to the destruction of their natural environment. The fourth harm is its impact on schools, and the damage of burning forests will increase the cost of buying books, because the primary purpose of making books is trees, and because of burning them, the cost of buying them will rise. The final damage is done to the people (who will buy the furniture) The price of the furniture will go up for the people because there are fewer trees and it is more difficult to get wood to make the furniture.

    This would be a good headline because I chose the tropics because they will be the most affected. The problem of climate change and global warming will increase temperatures, which will lead to an increase in water evaporation. Therefore, the amount of rain is greater in the tropics, which will lead to the sinking of lands and the large level of rain will make the tides and tides greater, which will lead to a tsunami And great floods, and the rain water on the land will meet with the large water level that comes from the water bodies, so that all the land becomes water like a water body.

The state needs to take considerations and declare a state of emergency This is what must happen to protect the earth from climate fluctuations We must be careful.

    I chose the story Monsters Anger The new main title is the speed of global warming, it is the most appropriate option for the story because the heat leads to global warming, which leads to climate change, so many of the world's forests are exposed to fires, which causes damage to the climate and its change, and the climate is affected by several factors, including high temperature and emissions Global warming gases and rising ocean water levels, there is another factor that we did not pay much attention to and that is. Burning forests, there are negative effects of fires on the climate that contribute to climate change. Now we go deeper into the fires. The clouds of fires reflect the hot sun. The more fires there are, the higher the percentage of carbon dioxide in the air, and other than this gas, methane, which causes global warming, comes out in forests. It must be oxygen, not dioxide. Carbon and other lethal gases and other things that lead to climate change and that the earth will witness other fires in the future. Will these fires increase climate changes and destroy the entire world?

    Story: Fires are burning in the forest

    Many forests in different regions of the world are exposed to fire, which damages the climate. Experts stress that fires are one of the main causes of global warming, which in turn affects plants and makes them more susceptible to damage. Global warming is the main cause of fires, because it raises the temperature in many areas. It makes them drier and more prone to combustion, and also causes a higher percentage of carbon dioxide in the air that plants need for their growth. And to find out whether climatic changes will cause more fires, it has concluded that the percentage of fires will multiply by five times compared to the current recorded fires. However, the climate researcher stresses that the percentage of fires will vary from one region to another

    I have chosen the story of the disappearance of islands under the sea
    My new title will say: History Repeats the Seventies Kiribati

    As we know climate change has led to a rise in sea levels, and this is a threat to the islands in the world where there is a possibility of 13 islands that will disappear in the next 80 years, Including the famous Maldives, which people pay a lot of money for its arrival, but......
    Its disappearance is undoubtedly as long as the water level is rising, but what is the reason for it? Of course climate change, Where climate change has led to the melting of ice in the Arctic and Antarctic, which has led to a rise in water levels in the oceans,So let us go back in history to the city of Tibungenko on the island of Kiribati in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, where due to the arrival of the tide the village was submerged and hardly anything remained of the village despite its prosperity in that period,Imagine, my friend, that we, who reside in cities and industrialized countries or far from major bodies of water, what would happen if these natural phenomena that we see from the wonders of the earth disappeared from the intensity of their beauty? Is it not sad that water devours the home of more than 730 million people, as the islanders constitute 11% of the total population of the world, What if they lost their homeland and large percentages of them died just because of our neglect of the issue of climate change!And I think that we should say (when) and not (if), because I think that the major countries have not yet given up their economic greed that has led to the deterioration of life in water bodies and the world at large,As long as there is selfishness, we will never have freedom without the constraints of climate change

    I've picked the story: wildfires rage
    My new title will say: Oxygen is running out....
    This title would be good for the following reasons:
    Humans causes 85-90% of them to occur, but 10-15% of them occur spontaneously due to natural causes, so the main cause of fires is humans and their ignorance of the causes caused by humans:
    .fire bonfires in the open air
    .Burning wood and tree leaves after cleaning the gardens
    .Throwing out burning cigarettes without putting them out
    .Launching fireworks in places near the forests
    Therefore, in my opinion, some legal measures must be taken to stop the burning of forests by putting official laws on those who cause forest fires.
    Because forest are so important in our life it gives us the Oxygen that was need to survive.

If heavy rains occur, people face many problems such as heavy rains and floods, which can be fatal, damage buildings, and damage crops and livestock. And communication. Where there is heavy rainfall with strong winds, the risk to forest crops is high. Floods are also caused by environmental conditions that cause heavy rainfall or rapid melting of snow and ice. Therefore, it is very important to be aware of the flood laws and how to protect ourselves from them. That is why my headline is very important and good for every flood-affected area. And it should be included in the News. Because such news saves the lives of many people.

The reason is that one day we may wake up to the disappearance of entire islands and their sinking under the sea, and the phenomenon of climate change poses a real danger to the whole world, but countries like the Maldives and Seychelles are more threatened than others because of the high rise Temperatures, which are accompanied by the melting of ice in the North and South Poles, which leads to a rise in sea levels and threatens the disappearance of those islands under the surface of the water. The rise in sea level could exacerbate floods, storms, sculpting and other coastal risks, and this will pose a threat to the vital infrastructure of island communities.

    I chose the story: the thaw. The new title will say: “The Ring of Water Pulses,” because the sea level rose by about 18 meters, in 500 years, The high recoil zone, has raised the sea level,The study found that the majority of the meltwater resulted from the melting of the previous ice sheets in North America and Eurasia, with a small contribution from Antarctica. Which reconciles the two previously divergent viewpoints. This also helps to improve the accuracy of climate models that are used to simulate the past and to predict future changes, and it is worth noting that the pace of sea level rise was a rapid period of "melt water pulses 1a". Then, this increase slowed for about 8,200 years until it was relatively stable 2,500 years ago. However, we have started to see another increase since the end of the 19th century.
