Why is the world not doing enough?

Hub Headings Thinking Question Thursdays.png

Scientists say that not enough is being done to stop climate change. They predict that if we continue as we are, the global temperatures will increase by at least 2.7C by the year 2100. Check out this week's Learning Zone to see what this might cause.

    I think that the appropriate and largest title for the world's failure to stop the climate is that laws that protect the environment will not be popular. The first reason is that laws that should be cautious and not on the sidelines, every country sets its own law to limit climate and global warming, and some of them put laws that may not have a reason in the limit. The second reason is that all countries should unite with each other and put only one law to limit climate change. If I were a head of state, I would suggest to them this note that the same laws should be put in place for some, and thus it would be better for all the world

      @playful_dragonfruit this is a really well thought out point. If all countries were able to agree a set of laws over climate change then in an ideal world this would be a strong start to a solution. Why do you think that in reality this might not be achievable?

        Charlie @ KPMG's comment 12 Feb 2022

        I think this is because there is no hope for intercourse because countries in general want each of them to have rules and laws. It is impossible for them to agree with each other. In countries that are the enemy of a country, but the friend of all countries and do not want to agree with them because this country exists. For example, the rich countries also do not want Dealing with poor countries

        I think that this is not prevalent in investigation because all countries of the world are preoccupied with their own problems and do not give blindness to the extent of the danger of climate change that could end humanity

        Charlie @ KPMG's comment 16 Feb 2022

        First, because every country in the real world has vague personal interests that it wants to achieve or satisfy its people for. I mean the real presidents want the interest of their people, but they don't exist or they are dead now. Every head of state wants his own interest only. Doesn't climate change require money? It requires money, and they will pay money that will not They pay money for climate change that they see as something. It is not a priority, but it is one of the most important priorities, but who do you find the understanding human person to understand, and therefore it is not acceptable?

    I chose A ( Laws that protect the environment would be unpopular)because from my point of view that the people do not care about these things, their focus on the things that they enjoy all the time and because the world has merged with technology, not with environmental protection, this worked on the spread of indifference

      sympathetic_starfruit's comment 13 Feb 2022

      In your opinion, how do we get people to care about climate change? Since people are so attracted to technology, why don't we make this technology a way to get rid of climate change? Why don't we get our message across to people and convince them of what's going on?I do not think that the fault lies with the people, but rather with the governments, experts and senior citizens of the country. If they deliver the message to the people and impose laws on them, people will not oppose them.

    The ONE biggest reason why the world is NOT doing enough isPeople are too focussed on money
    I said this because I chose this reason because the economy is the most important priority of the state, and financial income is the most important priority of every family in the world. Without money, there is no life. This is the conviction that spreads in the world, and because of this kind of convictions, they lied about climate change with their knowledge because it exists and they seek its effects on the ground. But money and reputation are more important to them, and they will not stop their companies and factories for something they deny its existence

    I chose this reason because there are many environmental laws, but in my society a large percentage of my society does not know anything about it and does not want to take care of it in the first place and considers it not among its priorities and lies about the existence of environmental disasters and the reason for this is the lack of awareness. With climate and environmental changes to make these laws popular among people

    The ONE biggest reason why the world is NOT doing enough isPeople are too focussed on money
    I said this because People think that money is a source of happiness, and whoever owns money lives as king, so they do not contribute and pay to get rid of global problems. The biggest example of this is that big companies evade paying taxes, as well as rich people who consider money the most important thing.

      unassuming_tamarillo's comment 10 Feb 2022

      Is it true that everyone who has money "does not contribute and pay to get rid of global problems"? And does every rich person "consider money the most important thing"? Is it fair to make statements that make it sound like everyone within a group thinks or behaves the same way?

      1. British Council.jpg unassuming_tamarillo | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
        Katie @ Topical Talk's comment 10 Feb 2022

        Certainly not, the words do not apply to everyone, but most are also few who donate their money to someone else. If every rich person donates to the poor, this number of people would not sleep without a home. If everyone who has money donates for the benefit of the state, there will not be global problems in this way in In our time, most people think only of themselves. They forget their brothers and their families, let alone the poor. I think we are in a very bad time and people's morals and behavior must be improved before any step.

        Katie @ Topical Talk's comment 12 Feb 2022

        No, because not everyone is the same. I mean, when a rich person does not help with this thing because he thinks that money is everything here, people think that all rich people are the same, but I think that there are some rich people who donate everything to the cause of the climate and there are those who are trying to He hides his money and thinks that it is the most important thing. I think that those who care about their money when they donate, and this is rare, of course, they will publish that they have donated for the poor on social media sites for him to show off. Money is the most important thing for them, and this is what makes the society of two classes, which are a very high class that cares about money to the point of not donating it, and a very poor class looking for the least amount of money, and this is a very bad thing. Also, this thing enhances cooperation between members of society, which makes society cohesive and loving, and makes the state good in terms of the economic situation, and makes the state strong and coherent, so I say that the rich should donate even a little

    The ONE biggest reason why the world is NOT doing enough isCountries do not work together enough
    I said this because I said that because if we look at the reality, the countries do not cooperate on anything. The big countries say how we work with a small country. They will share the achievement with us, and they did only a little. The rich say I will not deal with poor countries, they will steal my goods from me, and the antagonistic countries say if I cooperate with them, I will be a traitor. Like this, this is really a strange thing in our society that each of the countries throws the burden on the other, so the poor says, "Let's work on its solution." Whether poor or rich, big or small, everyone must solve it and give the land as it was taken from it

        Yes, there are problems and solutions. There is a problem facing everyone, which is financial or racial inequality, and there is a problem of not loving development for others as well as self, which is that countries do not want anyone to share it and share achievement and the solution to these problems is to put racism aside and remember that this problem means their lives And the lives of their people

    I said this because I think that it is the main reason why they do not solve the problem of climate change. A country helps the climate and another country harms, and this is not effective at all, but works to reform and destroy at the same time, so I think that this is the main reason and because the problem of climate change is global and not local, so all countries must The world must take its steps carefully while united and work to educate its people because the people are the key to solving this crisis

They only care about themselves and do not care about future generations. What will happen to them because of the shortcomings of these people and these countries They look under their feet, not in front of them The future is the life of generations.

      Do you think that this is the reason why people do not do enough? Are people risking the lives of their children and grandchildren? It is possible that they will not be affected while they are alive. But is it possible that there are people who do not think about the future of their children?

    I said this because I think that all countries are not co-operative and coherent. Each country believes that it is separate, because each country wants to be the strongest in the world. It does not want to resort to other countries and cooperate in solving problems. Each country takes its own decision, so there is no inevitable, unified solution for all countries.

    I said this because Because countries are interested in attracting donors and supporters, they will of course not pay the full amount alone, but will receive greater aid from the people and companies in the country, and also if they do not receive these great popular laws, no one will abide by the laws to reduce climate change, they will underestimate them and will not feel their importance and danger And they will not work with it or pay to limit it, and they are concerned about its popularity, because if they cannot convince people of these laws, scholars and presidents will not force people to follow a new life system that is compatible with the problem

    I think the answer
    Countries are not working together enough. If countries work well with each other and are one hand, the problem of climate change has long been eliminated. Unity and cooperation solve every problem no matter how difficult it is. As the saying goes, a mountain does not need another mountain, a man needs another person, we are all rowing in the same boat

    In the end, it's simple. Without investing in the right places, the world will not achieve its climate goals. Global temperature rise will exceed 1.5°C, increasing climate impacts that threaten the health, jobs and well-being of people everywhere.

    Climate action requires significant financial investments, as does new energy systems and infrastructure that can withstand the effects of climate change. But climate inaction is far more costly.

    All countries need to reduce their emissions and adapt to climate change. But many developing countries lack the resources and technology to do so. That is why all countries agreed that industrialized countries with the money and technological expertise should step up and increase their financial support for climate action in developing countries, especially the poorest and most vulnerable. International cooperation is essential to tackle climate change

    In my opinion, the biggest reason the world isn't doing enough is countries not working together enough, as none of us accept that climate responsibility is the responsibility of everyone who lives on this planet,Rather, we think that it is a voluntary act that he wants to do, so let him do it, but the duty to preserve this environment is an obligatory act,So the state ignored the matter, and did not set budgets to confront climate change. This will increase the countries’ neglect of solving climate problems, as they will not cooperate and deal together for climate change, but rather for economic interests,So far, we have not seen remarkable cooperation for the climate, as countries have not yet agreed on a climate agreement that includes all countries of the world,And I think if we want to solve the problem of countries not working together enough, we must first reduce the greed of the major industrialized countries, which I think are really the cause of climate change,Where it overcame its personal interests at the expense of the creatures of the planet and the environment, Here are the disasters punishing the whole world for what they committed, as if the major countries began to implement the global agreements that were established for the sake of the climate, but there is no noticeable interest and application of them,The major countries will start helping the poor countries, given that the poor peoples are the most affected by the climate, especially because most countries depend on agriculture as a source of income for the economy in the country,Although I hold the major countries fully responsible for the occurrence of the phenomenon of climate change, but if the poor countries remain alone without implementation, they will be affected and famines will spread in them, leading to the collapse of the state,Therefore, we have to start by alleviating the greed of the major countries, as although the factories of the major countries have led to the climate phenomenon, But now these countries are asking the developing countries to bear part of the responsibility so that the foundations of prosperity and development in their countries do not change,So if we are going to make the world face this problem with one hand, we must start with the major powers in it

    I think that the reason why the world is unable to fight climate change is the first thing that is their concern for other things such as the economic factor, especially that they do not have the money to make cells or cars that run on solar energy or anything to fight the climate or they stop factories and they need them because they need them The source of economic income for the individual, and it is their livelihood. How can they give it up without any compensation just for climate change? Finally, they cannot stop it because it is their livelihood. If there were compensation from the state or an economic source from the state, it would have been possible to stop the factories.

      I do not agree with you, the major industrial countries already have a strong economy that can cover a large part of the costs of building green projects, And the developing countries can agree with their governments with the governments of the major industrialized countries by exploiting their raw materials in return for their support with green projects, and this of course will positively affect the climate, Where when economic integration occurs in green projects, we will be able to reduce carbon emissions significantly and thus reduce the climatic risks that would have caused storms and fires in the future
      And the occurrence of this step will make the world feel the importance of the climate,Where the world we live in and governments and authorities cooperate only when there is a global issue that threatens our economy greatly, such as the Corona virus and now the issue that threatens us is climate change

    I said this because I think that the magnitude of the danger determines the size of the attempt and effort in finding a solution, but I believe that countries do not fulfill their environmental duty, and the stronger reason is the feeling of the magnitude of the danger, yet they fail in their international commitments towards climate change and the speed in bringing about positive change. There is no doubt that Peoples are among the most affected by climate change, and there are protests and demonstrations to obtain their environmental rights, but there is no life for those who call, as long as governments and states have not fully stood before their responsibilities, and efforts are intensified to protect our climate. It is no secret that the sense of danger was present in the COP26 Conference , But there are executive steps for every country. If implemented without procrastination in work and time, we will indeed face the greatest danger arising from climate change.. Why all this inaction on the part of countries?? The actual movement of these changes requires hard work and effort to reach the required limit to live in peace...

    I think that countries are not working with each other and not enough efforts are being made to stop climate change, for example, if cars that run on electricity or solar energy are used instead of those that emit harmful gases and exhaust, and factory smoke, in other countries they dump sewage into sea water, throwing rubbish on the ground, they do not care about the cleanliness of the neighborhood or the surrounding area; Only in the center of their house, and this is exactly what I am trying to point out and point out, to put our public interests ahead of personal interests, for countries to join hands with each other and plan with each other giant projects and make gigantic efforts together to reduce the problem of climate change. I do not know when they will care about what is affecting humanity With all these signs and signs, when will they wake up?

I also think that countries aren’t doing enough by not working together save our planet and big company’s are also not doing enough for e.g they use plastic packaging but they don’t recycle it and then a few people in the world also do not think about climate change and just throw plastic bottles or things that can be recycled whilst not thinking about how much this could affect our planet.

This applies not only to nature, but to our decisions about relationships and most aspects of life Here, countries do not help each other, because every country in the world is interested in itself and does not look outside the perimeter of the country and what is happening with the countries of the world and does not see the climate and bad temperatures. I am sure when the countries of the world unite with each other, they will be able to overcome the problems that surround them and lead a healthy life.

    I said this because I think that all countries must work together and be united even if they are separated by distance, language, culture, religion, color, etc. Unity and solidarity in society among its members is of great political importance, as members of society unite against any aggression against the society, whether it is internal aggression or external aggression. All members of the same society stand together against this aggression, in defense of their civilization and one history, as well as defending their sanctities, their past and their present within this society.

    1> In my opinion, the biggest reason the world isn't doing enough is because countries are doing enough together.
    . I said this because if we look at the reality, countries are not cooperating with anything, whether climate change or other things. They might say the big countries, why do we work with the big countries? They say the rich, the poor, and the enemies will say the same thing, so this thing does not do any good. All we have to do is provide solutions so that we can bring countries together to limit climate change. The first solution is to integrate climate change into national and sectoral policies and plans. The second solution: We must support the least developed countries in developing plans to integrate adaptation to climate change in national activities and other activities. We may seek behind these solutions to find benefit and assistance. Finding benefit and helping countries together to reduce climate change, there are also solutions other than bringing countries together, 1- Plant more trees because the more trees planted is enough for the current carbon to accumulate in the atmosphere. And other solutions.

    The main reason why countries do not do their best to change the climate is that they do not feel responsible. The nature of human beings makes them do not feel responsible until after this calamity befalls them, although people can do some thing to solve the climate problem, but at the same time they cannot because stopping this thing means stopping the world from Work and this thing is the technology.

    Well, everyone is giving and giving, but this is not enough. We must work hard and do our best to get rid of this change.
    Every country is trying to show the world its strength, but this will not work. If these countries unite their forces, we will certainly reach a solution.
    Also, selfishness plays a role in the difficulty of overcoming this problem. It is true that every country is giving , but at the same time it is trying to preserve its economy.
    We are at stake. If we lose this battle, we lose the whole world. There is nowhere to go from climate change, so we have only one solution before us, and that is to win.

They consider it an imaginary thing that does not happen, but it is very dangerous and the laws of the state play a role in this thing. A country may be interested in this thing and put serious laws, but in countries that do not care about these laws And it is just an illusion that will not affect humanity.

    In my opinion, the biggest reason countries are not doing enough is because people focus more on money and not on the beneficial return, as we see that when the United States, for example, started making decisions to start solving the problem of climate change, and said that by 2050 it would be able to Stopping carbon emissions or controlling them as much as possible, she has never thought of solving them in partnership with one of the countries, because this will not work, and indeed she is now succeeding in improving the carbon emissions that accrue to them by a certain percentage in her country, but if the solution is worldwide It will not be easy and this will raise disputes even before the solution begins, and it will result in a lot of differences such as contradictions in opinions,Their difference in who will be responsible if the expected results do not appear or in a timely manner and others also such as the difference in the contribution of each country from the material side and many problems that will stand in the way of putting any laws on climate change or living seeing the results or working with one hand to stop climate change.

      If we do not work together as a world, we will not succeed! Everyone who lives on this earth has to take responsibility for this global cause!If the United States of America will work alone, and a large percentage of countries will not work ,like this, they will start relying on the United States of America to come and support it with green projects, and all it has to do is implement, and do not forget that despite the problems that occur between countries, in our confrontation with the Corona virus we are still facing Together with one hand, as most countries participate in conferences and send their scientists and experts, and many personalities have asserted the importance of the unity of the world in this period, where at the beginning of the virus, Ahmed Al-Faraj said (it is assumed that the priority now is in the cooperation of all countries of the world in finding a cure Or a vaccine for the Corona virus) and Chinese companies cooperated with Egyptian companies in the production of the vaccine, (and Liao Liqiang, the Chinese ambassador in Cairo, said that China is cooperating with the countries of the world and the African continent to confront the Corona virus), as this shows the importance of global unity in these issues

        This also does not work, let's just imagine that we are now striving to start a collective action among all countries, I mean all countries, which are developed countries and developing countries with different economic and social systems between them. Does this work?
        This will have a frightening and dangerous return on the whole world. First of all, if we want to do this, will the developing countries be able to pay the same amount that the developed countries are able to pay and contribute to? It would be foolish to say that the developed countries will help the poor countries in the material aspect, because each country's primary and only concern is the interest of its state and its people
        Secondly, if the matter is done, and let us assume that all countries contributed the material amount and we started the first step by eliminating or reducing carbon emissions, if the developed countries get a better result than others or vice versa, this will generate problems between countries and no country will bear the responsibility for the delay in the emergence of results that their failure to appear in The right time, when every country sees this, you will see that joint action between countries will not be a straight solution, but my opinion on the matter is that for example, let's go back to the United States, if it is able to stop carbon emissions 10 years from now, that will not make a difference It is clear at the world level, but it will make a difference at the state level only, what we need is for each country to work properly on the scale of its state and to to solve the biggest problems to facilitate the consideration of other problems,Thus, we will have a global revolution from all the countries in the world with the efforts of each country individually, and the countries will be able to provide encouragement to each other by seeing the different results and achievements.

          This really made me think, versatile_satsuma. Especially when you said "each country's primary and only concern is the interest of its state and its people". Is this always a bad thing? When might it be a good thing?

    They may be economic problems, meaning that the parties do not want to lose money for this problem, or that the state is poor and cannot pay the money, or social problems such as the refusal of the population to help solve the problem, or problems in science that the scientist does not want to contribute with his knowledge or the state is ignorant and not There are educated people, or the problem of not wanting to know the unknown, or religious problems that the different religions do not want to deal with. These are some of the reasons that have been mentioned that can stop the world or turn it upside down and thwart the attempts.

    The ONE biggest reason why the world is NOT doing enough is: Our leaders don't believe that it will help them in any way.
    I said this because: It has been said for many years that our leaders are often selfish about climate change and general important matters as it could not help themselves. Saying that, there are many leaders who do try their hardest to help the public and the wider world but that is not always the case. Selfishness is often a major cause for concern among the leaders of our world as they don't want to be labeled it but they reuse to make the decisions that would help the word and choose to help themselves most often.
    If you were in power and had to make a decision that wouldn't help you in the short time but would help others for many years, would you make that choice? For me the answer is a no brainer.
    Our leaders have proved time and time again, that they would not make that choice.

    I think that the reason why the world does not do enough is that countries do not work together enough, because if countries came together and united, it would be good because there is always strength in union, and the reason for the separation of countries and their lack of adherence and unity is due to greed, because every country wants to be the strongest. If countries unite, all problems will be solved

    In my opinion, the main reason the world does not do enough is that countries do not come together to do enough
    When countries do not work together, climate change will not be a priority for the world, and there will be no awareness of the dangers of climate change. People and their demands, the government must raise awareness of the dangers of climate change, and people must demand action to stop it. In my opinion, there are reasons that prevent countries from uniting:
    1) Wars and problems that occur between them prevent them from working together.
    2) Every country's greed that it will become the best.
    3) Focusing each country and making money and the economy a priority.

    And of course, all problems have solutions: In my opinion
    It is possible that countries make agreements that include clausesConditions that stipulate working together and the Union to stop the climate, no matter what circumstances and problems may occur between them, making stopping climate change their priority and developing a plan to follow it to stop climate change

    In my opinion, the biggest reason the world is not doing enough is that countries are not working together enough as the industrialized countries are primarily responsible for carbon emissions and global warming. At the United Nations Climate Conference (Copenhagen) in 2009, industrialized countries decided to allocate $100 billion annually by 2020 to finance projects aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and to contribute to developing countries’ adaptation to climate change. Rich countries have a duty to support the countries that cause the least global warming while they suffer the most from its effects. Therefore, countries must do more to stop climate change.

    The ONE biggest reason why the world is NOT doing enough isCountries do not work together enough
    I said this because I chose that because every country in the world wants its interest and wants to flourish economically and scientifically. If it does not find its interest with any country, do not work with it. This happens in our reality because the country is not united and only cares about being the highest, most successful and richest. The high class is very high and does not think about the negatives and thoughts that this has on humanity, so why do we as a people not reject that?

    First, because every country in the real world has vague personal interests that it wants to achieve or satisfy its people for. I mean the real presidents want the interest of their people, but they don't exist or they are dead now. Every head of state wants his own interest only. Doesn't climate change require money? It requires money, and they will pay money that will not They pay money for climate change that they see as something. It is not a priority, but it is one of the most important priorities, but who do you find the understanding human person to understand, and therefore it is not acceptable?

    I said this because I see this as appropriate because of the wars taking place between the countries of the world. The world suffers from a lack of peace, as we see wars playing a major role in destabilizing the situation and agreeing on peace and security.

    One of the biggest reason why the world is not doing enough to stop climate change caused by the increase of greenhouse gases such as methane, nitrogen and carbon dioxide is because humans can do little to stop the natural causes such as change in solar radiation, while the increase in the world's population results to more need for food and meat. Therefore increasing livestock farming, cows and sheeps produce large amount of methane when digesting their food, and fertilizers containing nitrogen also produce nitrous oxide emission. Increase in population is the reason behind increase in vehicle on roads causing vehicle emissions.

    I said this because if countries do not work together well, we will not be able to save the planet in any way. We must all work together to stop our planet from getting destroyed due to humanity.

    The ONE biggest reason why the world is NOT doing enough isCountries do not work together enough
    I said this because Countries who have the most money such as Usa China and the UK are too focused on making these new technoligies and inventions that are bad for the environment such as cars and things like that by working collabratively but with climate change a lot of them come up with their own rules which might not be hard enough but if they worked together they could make up better rules for climate change and make them worldwide which would bring more attention to them.

    I strongly believe that there is no way the world can prevent climate change but at least we can slow it down. However, my spark of hope has extinguished as there are three major problems that the world is neglecting : fossil fuels tarnishing the air , deforestation and co-operation. All of these link into one big reason as:

    First and foremost, the population is increasing so much that more products and equipment should be made to satisfy the needs of one single person. 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide are released in the air per year from just one car and there are over one billion cars on the planet. Not only do we influence climate change by allowing tonnes of fossil fuels in the air, but also the world will just be to toxic to live in. We will destroy ourselves without even knowing!

    Secondly, deforestation is occurring and trees are being cut at a much faster rate than before. They are a benefit to us as they replace the carbon dioxide with oxygen. The adage is that "they are the lungs of the Earth" which is true and people are just focusing on money rather than there health. Therefore, trees are sadly being obliterated and it is our duty to stop it. If some tree cutters need to find another job, so be it. If I need to reduce how much paper I write on, so be it. If we all make a change, than we will be the heroes of our planet.

    Last but not least, countries need to be co-operative and work as a team. The world has continents, the continents have countries, countries have cities and so on. But we only have one atmosphere that all links. Despite other countries improving by reducing how much fossil fuels they burn, other countries might not and the carbon dioxide will soon reach all parts of the world. Regardless of how much one country improves it will all slow down therefore the whole world needs to make a difference.

    All of these link into one, as without co-operation, trees will still be cut down, with a result of more fossil fuels in the air.

    I believe it is co-operation as we all share one planet and one atmosphere that we all need to take care of.
