Climate change solutions

COP26 Featured Image 1

Since we are here to share our ideas to find a solution to climate change, I decided to use my thinking abilities and try to come up with a solution

These are some of the solutions that I think will help solve the climate change problem:

First: Start exploiting the coastal plains and planting trees in them, in order to help the oceans and seas and reduce the impact of climate change on them

Second: The state imposed on the citizen to pay fines if he harmed nature by any act, even if it was throwing a piece of paper on the ground. Humans, my friend, only learn by mistake , but the people who offend the environment do not see their actions as a mistake, but when fines are imposed on them, they will fear for every penny, and this is how we can solve the problem of individuals neglecting the environment

Third: Reducing the use of oil and its derivatives and relying on environmentally friendly energies. It is true that this will affect the economy of some countries, but we are living in a war against climate change. It is very natural for countries and their economies to be affected

Fourth: Awareness campaigns specifically targeting children. They are the future generation. If we build them, we build the future

Fifth: I think that countries should take advantage of climate change to grow and store summer fruits and fruits, since if they encounter a problem in the economy while facing climate change, they can find food stocks that prevent starvation

Sixth: Explaining the dangers of climate change on the future of children, their lives, their development and their rights, as UNICEF has stated that the climate change crisis is a crisis of children's rights

And here these were my thoughts, I would like you to write a solution that you think can help us in facing climate change with justification for the reason and I would like you to answer this simple question, which is how you see your talents can help solve climate change, such as: I am my talent for writing and I see that it will help in ......
Thank you for reading

    This is a very comprehensive set of ideas, healthy_antelope. Which do you think can be discussed most at COP26?

      Starting to exploit and cultivate the coastal plains, as well as paying attention to every small point of the ocean, for the ocean is an ally of humanity, as the oceans absorb carbon dioxide,This means that the ocean bears enough of our negligence of carbon emissions, so we have to move and protect the ocean, especially since the ocean is the largest source of water in the world, And if the ocean water evaporates due to climate change, the water level will decrease and temperatures will increase, and this will cause the Arctic to melt Thus, Also, if the water level drops, there will be wars between countries over water and wars will increase carbon emissions as a result of the war tools that are used, and also because countries will start to care about wars instead of climate change, meaning that the ocean connects the world with every small and big event that occurs with it , and taking care of the coastal plains and cultivating them, so that we can purify the air and reduce the carbon emissions absorbed by the ocean, and thus we will help ourselves and the ocean and ensure that the ocean can save us in the future

    1,Keep fossil fuels in the ground: Fossil fuels include coal, oil and gas – and the more that are extracted and burned, the worse climate change will get. All countries need to move their economies away from fossil fuels as soon as possible.
    2 ,Invest in renewable energy:Changing our main energy sources to clean and renewable energy is the best way to stop using fossil fuels. These include technologies like solar, wind, wave, tidal and geothermal power.
    Switch to sustainable transport. Petrol and diesel vehicles, planes and ships use fossil fuels. Reducing car use, switching to electric vehicles and minimising plane travel will not only help stop climate change, it will reduce air pollution too.
    3,Help us keep our homes cosy: Homes shouldn’t be draughty and cold – it’s a waste of money, and miserable in the winter. The government can help households heat our homes in a green way – such as by insulating walls and roofs and switching away from oil or gas boilers to heat pumps.
    4,Improve farming and encourage vegan diets: One of the best ways for individuals to help stop climate change is by reducing their meat and dairy consumption, or by going fully vegan. Businesses and food retailers can improve farming practices and provide more plant-based products to help people make the shift.

    your fourth point on Awareness campaigns targeting the children will help a lot I think. they are the ones in charge in the future .. if they learn from now about the dangerous of the weather changes nowadays they will do better in future.. they maybe able to regain the normal balance of nature

    In addition I want to add those points :Restore nature to absorb more carbon. The natural world is very good at cleaning up our emissions, but we need to look after it. Planting trees in the right places or giving land back to nature through ‘rewilding’ schemes is a good place to start. This is because photosynthesising plants draw down carbon dioxide as they grow, locking it away in soils.
    Protect forests like the Amazon. Forests are crucial in the fight against climate change, and protecting them is an important climate solution. Cutting down forests on an industrial scale destroys giant trees which could be sucking up huge amounts of carbon. Yet companies destroy forests to make way for animal farming, soya or palm oil plantations. Governments can stop them by making better laws.
    Protect the oceans. Oceans also absorb large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which helps to keep our climate stable. But many are overfished, used for oil and gas drilling or threatened by deep sea mining. Protecting oceans and the life in them is ultimately a way to protect ourselves from climate change.Thank you

    I agree with you 100% and I also think we can use social media to spread awareness and also for people to give us their ideas to a solve a problem like a climate change or even right it as a question in the newspaper will help us alot

    Through your writing talent, you can create, write and find solutions to the climate crisis, and you can also educate people by writing, for example, in newspapers and magazines, as well as the media and social media.

      Wonderful, and also, through the talent of writing, you can be attracted to the thinking of other people who are interested in reading and help them develop their ideas and express them through articles or useful means that help raise awareness , Where the reader will be educated and aware of all these things and will be able to help us

    7.Reduce plastic. Plastic is made from oil, and the process of extracting, refining and turning oil into plastic (or even polyester, for clothing) is surprisingly carbon-intense. It doesn’t break down quickly in nature so a lot of plastic is burned, which contributes to emissions. Demand for plastic is rising so quickly that creating and disposing of plastics will account for 17% of the global carbon budget by 2050 (this is the emissions count we need to stay within according to the Paris agreement).

    4.Reduce how much people consume. Our transport, fashion, food and other lifestyle choices all have different impacts on the climate. This is often by design – fashion and technology companies, for example, will release far more products than are realistically needed. But while reducing consumption of these products might be hard, it’s most certainly worth it. Reducing overall consumption in more wealthy countries can help put less strain on the planet.
    5.Restore nature to absorb more carbon. The natural world is very good at cleaning up our emissions, but we need to look after it. Planting trees in the right places or giving land back to nature through ‘rewilding’ schemes is a good place to start.
