    That is an interesting take on climate change, but I find myself agreeing with you.

    I strongly agree with you two, our world is slowly dying and needs our help, everyone has to take part on saving the earth from climate change for it to be a better place. For example global warming, it is very important , nearly as much as ourselves and it is our fault that we are making this all happen. We all need to help for our planet to be alive again and not let it die.

    And there is no one who can solve this problem by himself, rather we must all cooperate because we are the ones who did this and we are the ones who will stop it

    How can we help save the environment, I believe that it is important to talk about saving the environment and raising awareness. There are many ways to help save the environment like:
    * Use electric cars instead of gasoline ones.
    * Use solar panels.
    * Reduce plastic material and use paper or metal instead.
    * Use cloth material instead of plastic.
    * Plant trees.
    * Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
    * Bike, walk or use public transportation.
    * Use long-lasting light bulbs.
    * Use eco-friendly products.
    * Stop smoking.
    * Keep beaches clean from wastes.

      These are some great suggestions, diplomatic_brain! Which one do you think would help the environment or the climate the most? Why?

        Thank you, I think that recycling is the most important thing to help the environment because in that way the danger will become less on the environment and human being.

    The initial shock of Covid made us completely forget about our climate and how badly it was being damaged by us. There are many things that we can do to try and undo our damage and help revive and get our planet back to its original state. One thing that we can do is switching to green energy sources. Green energy does not emit any carbon dioxide or greenhouse gases. This would prevent the heating up of the planet, which is one of the main reasons as to why animals are losing their homes and their lives. Another way we could help protect our planet is by simply helping nature. Planting a tree in your garden, picking up some litter on the street or recycling your waste are all easy ways we can help nature and our environment. By doing these things a long with many other options we can massively help our planet and undo the damage we have done.

    Human activities contribute with a high percent in causing climate change.
    So, i see as we cause the problem we also have to cause the change , stand against the harmful activities and stop it. As in generating electricity problems and how it causes many problems because of its emissions so . I think we have to find an alternative resources for generating electricity at least and use clean energy.

    We were all created on earth to help and save others.we can all leave this world in any day now.humans need to start thinking about others and what they need in their life so they can help. A lot of people are now suffering and dying because of COVID-19 and other diseases and we need to be there for them.

    United we stand divided we fall.

    This is not just a quote, this one quote can change the world, but that doesn't mean by memorizing it only. By doing hard work and if we all try to be fully motivated then our want can be fulfilled otherwise one man army can not do anything.

    Now let's come to the next point, climate crisis do not come in one day,but it's possible to make it decrease slowly,we all know that we can not finish this within a day but if we all set our mind and be dedicated on it only then we make a situation for us anf also for our future generation.

    Again climate change affects every corner of our planet – from the poles to the tropics, and from the mountains to the oceans. People and nature worldwide are already feeling the effects, water supplies are shrinking, extreme weather events increasing in frequency and intensity, forests burning, and coral reefs dying.Governments, companies, cities and communities are coming together to act. We can still escape the worst impacts of climate change, and build a safer future for us. But we have to plan in that way.

    So it's the perfect time to make a strong bond between us and to save our planet from this crisis. Lets come together.

    Now a days,climate change has become an alarming issue for the whole world.
    An emergency is a serious situation that requires immediate action. When someone calls 911 because they can’t breathe, that’s an emergency. When someone stumbles on the sidewalk because their chest is pounding and their lips are turning blue, that’s an emergency. Both people require help right away. Multiply those individuals by millions of people who have similar symptoms, and it constitutes the biggest global health emergency in a century: the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Now consider the following scenarios: A hurricane blasts Florida. A California dam bursts because floods have piled water high up behind it. A sudden, record-setting cold snap cuts power to the entire state of Texas. These are also emergencies that require immediate action. Multiply these situations worldwide, and you have the biggest environmental emergency to beset the earth in millennia: climate change.

    Given the circumstances, Scientific American has agreed with major news outlets worldwide to start using the term “climate emergency” in its coverage of climate change.

    How can we help save the earth,I think that it is very important talk about saving earth and developing awareness in people.We can save our earth by
    1-Live by the mantra- Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.
    2-Keep our surrounding clean.
    3-Plant more trees.
    4-Conserve water and water bodies.
    5-Educate people about the significance of conserving nature.
    6-Shop wisely.
    7-Cycle more and drive fewer cars on the road.
    8-Use LED lights.
    9-Return hangers to the dry cleaners.
    10-Donate unwanted goods.
    The most important way is recycling such as
    Re-use brown paper bags to line your trash can.
    Re-use bread bags and produce bags.
    Store food in re-usable containers.
    Return hangers to the dry cleaners.

      Rather than writing a list, can you share your opinion? Which is the easiest to do? Which is the most effective?

        Plant more and more trees is the easiest because trees have many uses it absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen which help to breathe by trees we can be strong by economical development

    The technological revolution has certainly changed our lives. Without it, we would still live without electricity, ships, planes, trains, cars and tools.. We will return to live like cavemen, but some of us may wonder: Was technology as good for our environment as it was for us? Climate change

    Our issues of climate change and technology go back to the Second Industrial Revolution in the 1880s when people started using coal to generate electricity for homes and industries. At first, people could only look at the benefits. Today, of course, we all know that generating electricity has a cost, because it emits tons of carbon. This, of course, leads to pollution and extreme weather conditions, among many other things.
    Over the years, our population has grown. Our needs have also increased, and it is not far to say that no one can live without electricity today. In fact, global electricity consumption is constantly increasing year on year.
    As electricity consumption grows, of course, so does carbon emissions. To help you understand how much carbon we're releasing into the atmosphere, these numbers from our Greenhouse Gas Equations Calculator may help:

    1.Save energy at home- By saving energy at home and turning off your lights at home you can reduce light pollution.2. Walk, bike, or take public transport will reduce emmisions in the enviourment because lots of people can travel in one transportation. 3. Eat more vegetables- Eating more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds, and less meat and dairy, can significantly lower your environmental impact.4. Think before you fly- This will reduce the emmisions in the air and travel when its only absolutely necessary.5. Speak up- You have the right to protest and say what you believe in.
