    Climate change is considered a health emergency according to the World Health Organization that affects diets, the spread of diseases, health systems and societies as a whole. There is no vaccine for climate change, but we have solutions, and we must propose solutions to this problem because it will affect us in the future.

      The phrase "no vaccine" is an interesting phrase as climate change affects people's health but isn't a medical condition. I wonder if climate change activists could use the phrase to help people see the urgency of the problem?

    Climate change is a rational idea and we should not do and we must suggest solutions to change the climate so that it becomes appropriate to us

    Climate Change is a growing concern and we aren't getting many results due to the lack of people's urge to maintain the laws and regulations and they don't care about the future.

    All the Human Beings are same but their thinking and feeling mind be different

    Climate change includes both global warming driven by human-induced emissions of greenhouse gases and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather patterns.

      A question that is bugging my mind is that greenhouse gas emission is necessary bi-product for most industrial production. So how is curbing it the answer if it also results in a dropdown of our industries?

        You are absolutely right about it. The thing is, we always have to look for an alternative. Since the 18th century, I mean the industrial era there is this emission of greenhouse gases. People never stopped with the industries and now this world is in crisis. the emission of carbon dioxide is still going up and if we just think about industries the world would be in danger. What we have to do is not curbing the use rather we have to reduce it to some extent.

    Climate crisis is a term describing warming and climate change, and their consequences. The term has been used to describe the threat of global warming to the planet, and to urge aggressive climate change mitigation.

    Climate can change in any time
    Some time It start to rain
    Some time It start to cold
    According to the time climate will change
    Suppose In December to February the climate will be winter similarly in June to July it will start rain fall
    In some place or country the climate remain cold Like ice land
    Nobody can change the climate by their skill or ay instruments . We should enjoy the day by their different climate

      Well, you're quite right but at some points I'm not agree with you. The world is not confined rather due to science and technology it has turned into a small village and the technologies are also playing a role to climate change. Though for some natural reasons the climate changes, we are also changing the climate to a great extent with lots of skills and instruments just to comfort ourselves where we are giving discomfort to our earth. We are facing many natural disasters and we are the main catalyst here at present. Climate of all most every places have changed and thus creating an unbalanced climate and also we are getting threat from the environment. So the comment-"Nobody can change the climate by their skill or ay instruments" is not so correct.

    Climate is changing and very soon we are going to have a shower with many unknown upcoming diseases. So what are we doing to prevent this ?
    We are thinking of our economic growth and development not the environment equally. While some people think that if we have money we can even buy the climate. So for them I would say- If you really think that the economy is more important than the environment, try holding your breath while counting your money.

    Human are increasingly influencing the climate and earth's temperature by burning fossil fuels, cutting down forests and farming livestock. This activity enormous amount of green house gases to those naturally occurring in the atmosphere, increasing green house effect and global warming. So we should plant trees, do end of fossil fuels subside ,reduce our energy use and change agricultural system to conserve environment and maintain climate.

    Temperature rising, natural calamities,rising of sea water all these have become a threat to our life. And behind this nothing but "Climate Change" is responsible. Climate change has taken the top position in the most discussed problems in this world. So at this moment not only a single country rather all the countries of the world have to work together to overcome it. First of all we have to reduce the emission of green house gases. We all have to work for building our environment, making it more green. We should be concern about "Are we saving our environment or damaging it?" Keeping this question in mind we will start our work. Because, "Our ENVIRONMENT is our RESPONSIBILITY "

      Yes we do need some immediate actions to calm down the situation for now, or else situations might even get worse. But these immediate actions wont always be the permanent solutions. When we talk about permanent solutions, they are mostly prepared by the means of huge amount of time and efforts. That's the reason the solutions persist for a long time. That's why, I firmly believe that immediate actions and permanent actions are equally important for this climate change issue. One needs to be taken to reduce the losses, to calm the existing crisis and one is to be takemn to cure the situation for good.

    Climate change was never a new problem to this world. Its just the zealous behaviour of people towards the new risen problem CORONA which is preventing people to see any further problems besides it. They are quarantined within the only problem they think very crucial. Awareness is a must in this situation.

      It's true that climate change was never a new problem. But the human being started to realize how crucial it is only when we started to suffer drastically from it, means when the global temperature is causing us trouble, disasters are taking place more frequently. But I believe it's never too late to solve this climate crisis. We are now understanding the importance of a sound climate and a sound environment, working out to find some fruitful and permanent solutions as well. Hope that sooner the world will be as charming and comfortable for us as it used to be several centuries ago.

    I have been learning about climate change since fourth grade. One of the main reasons for this crisis is global warming, which is the increase of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere. If we take a look at the increase of the emission of these gases, it has increased 7 times over the last century(In the 20th century the emission was 5 billion tons of carbon dioxide. In the 21st century it has come to 35 billion tons). It is because of the rapid development of industry and civilization. one way to solve this is, we can reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses, but it will hamper the production of the industry. But we can also use our technology to innovate today's industry so that the greenhouse gasses can be made less harmful to our atmosphere. There goes a proverb that necessity is the mother of invention . Now is the time we become conscious about this matter. The most important thing is increasing awareness among mass people.

    We started breaking CO2 records in 1950, and we haven’t stopped since. Well, scientists say there’s a 95% chance that human activity is the cause. We’ve been burning more and more fossil fuels like oil and coal, which release CO2, to power our homes, factories, aeroplanes and cars. We just have to mitigate the use of cars and other things that can help us to save energy.

    Climate changing is really a very burning issue- but generally we don't emphasize on a matter until it has risen up to a pandemic. We all have been reading on the Climate issues, global warming, green house gas effects in our text books, but we don't take any practical initiative to solve climate problems. Yes, it's true that to solve this problem of huge context, we need very urgent and effective steps, but every critical problem has a easy solution, we have to just figure that out. If we be aware on our own and spread awareness in our surroundings- starting from our family and friends, we will be able to conquer the problem named Climate Change.

    According to the latest Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change report, there is an occurrence of climate changes in every region and globally. On the physical basis of climate change, the world's latest scientific assessment report that defines changes are unprecedented in thousands if not in hundreds of thousands of years which also emphasizes that there is still time to act but it must happen soon. And this climate action requires significant investment. Like; adaptation. ‘ investing in adaptation would save lives and protect livelihood’,the UN Deputy Chief told a high-level meeting on adaptation solutions.

    The climate crisis does not affect everyone equally.People in vulnerable communitiesare already losing their homes,and their lives.I think that solidarity begins with developed countries fulfilling their decade old pledge of 100$ billion annually for climate action in developing countries.

    1. The most difficult decision for me was to choose where I should take shelter during the storm.Because all of the options were quit confusing at that crucial moment.In case of first option which was to take shelter in a crumbly cave,that was not too safe as it was in middle of island and crumbly also.And in second case which was to climb heel,that was not possible in that stormy weather.To go to shop basement and Mayor's house was also risky and not safe enough.That's why,it was difficult to choose among these options.

    2. In a crisis,if we start panicking and do things in rush,I think these make the situation more difficult.

    3. CoP26 is a conference for all the countries and I think that different countries face different kind of situations during any disaster.So I think these factors are common in case of many countries but some may have more complications and difficulties.

    4. From this game, we have learnt that different people may have different solutions and strategies to handle a situation.Besides,we should respect individual's answer and understand their perspectives towards a matter.

    The initiatives taken by The Economist Educational Foundation will play a crucial role in saving our mother planet. Though there is a little bit chance of getting the advantage instantly, it will come after some years when we will sit in the policy making place of our respective country. The 21st century is focusing largely on the risks of climate crisis.But it wasn’t that much in the previous century. So it is my strongest believe that within some years, we will get the results of such programmes running across the globe.This type of initiative should be continued. With this,the leadership qualities,communication skills and carefulness will be raised to a great extent amongst the youth.

    Curbing the emissions will require advanced processing systems which most countries may be not able to afford due to the fragility of the economy that has been amplified due to the COVID pandemic so is it viable to assume that this problem can be individually solved?

    As we know that because of the polluted air from the factories, Smoke from transportation vehicles, over population and less plantation is destroying ozone layer. Just beacuse of these causes ozone layer is getting damaged day by day and is not properly able to protect us from harmful rays of sun. Which are effecting our lives as the harmful rays of sun are dangerous for us. To avoid this situatuion we must increase more plantation for more oxygen and less CO2.

        That's having negative impact in people about global warming and other climate change issues, we all know that making people aware about the risk factors about the climate change and inspire them to eradicate carbon emission. If people doesn't became aware of it it will never be possible . Again in his tenure after he made this comment USA stepped out from the Paris agreement on Carbon Eradication and stopped financial aid to Green Climate fund. Don't you think this steps of USA being one of the most powerful nations of the world slowen down the carbon eradication process and also the global initiative against climate change ??

    Since the very beginning we are trying to develop our life. Yet noone can bring this change alone or one by one. We have worked togather and made an idea or plan consisting many human minds. Thus our will became stonger then ever. This is the power of perspective. So i fully agree with the above opimions. Even though many a times the point of people have ignored just for ignorance of a person. Yet i believe that with the help many mind can we achive wonders yet to be found.

    The way through which the climate is changing everyday is dangerous and threating for all of us. Climate change is widespread and intensifying says the latest IPCC report. It underscores the urgency of strong, sustained cuts in greenhouse gas emissions. The U.N. climate panel says “strong and sustained” reductions of carbon emissions and other greenhouses gases would limit climate change. Benefits such as improved air quality would come quickly, while it could take 20 to 30 years to see global temperatures stabilize, it adds.

    Regional Perspectives With the high rate of population growth and the increase of urbanization, the population growth rate decreased and man played a major role in the climate.
    The climate system consists of five main components.
    When overlooking some points of view spoils the case and worsens the situation, and sometimes it is to overlook some points of view in order to obtain privileges.
    What we get here is that technological development has had a broad impact on climate and population growth.

    It is a beautiful thing that works on developing the student’s ideas, even if the student cannot get more stars, but it is lunch for the mind and thinking. It is a very successful project that came at a beautiful time, because the students now need to be strengthened more because of the electronic networks that were working on studying and learning From a distance, in this case, it develops the mother tongue of foreigners and increases the understanding and learning of the sub-language of Arab students, as it is a major factor in the student’s life to develop his mind and activities.💙💙

    Human beings have a characteristic that we understand the severeness of any crisis only when we suffer from it, and this fact is clearly being visible when we observe the lack of awareness of the people about climate change.

    Climate change is being more drastic for human being day by day. Sadly enough, still so many people around the world are not aware enough of this situation, even after knowing how cruel it might be in the future days if we don't start working on it. Even, some of the world leaders and activists have proclaimed this crisis as a 'MYTH'.

    Perspectives are always important to find solutions in any situation. Specially when it comes to 'Climate change', i believe it can be one of the most useful and effectual step if we want to create awareness and eradicate this crisis.

    Bangladesh is a country of tropical monsoon climate. In our country, cyclone, river erosion, drought, flood, heavy rain etc are the disasters which are being caused due to climate change. The average temperature of our country is increasing every year as well. During the crisis situation, the common, poor people of our country suffer the most, because of leaving in the coastal regions mostly and not having proper economical sophistication to find proper shelter and foods during these situations. Agriculture is the main profession of our country, and I believe farmers are the main sufferers in this sorts of crisis. Thousand acres of lands are being destroyed or losing their fertility every year, which are the main source of living of the farmers. It's affecting their lives, also the total foods and goods production of our country, affecting our annual GDP as well.

    We get the news and updates of this crisis taking place due to climate change mainly from the news and media. they go the affected place after the disaster or crisis is over, try to understand the situation and convey the updates to us. but i believe these reporters and media can never inform us about what is exactly happening in those crisis prone or affected areas. This can only and only be understood by the people, those common people who faced the situation practically and suffered from it.

    If we could give those affected people the chance to say something about the crisis, how they are suffering in this situation, what kinds of losses they are facing, what they exactly need to get rid of this crisis, what kind of support and facilities they need to be provided with to overcome the losses after the crisis. Then, we also would have understood how drastic this climate change exactly is, and how we will be a able to find solutions to this problem.

    If delaying COP26 helps us to get a better conclusion. Then isn't it better?

    I believe that by the power of opinions keeps upgrading untill the participants stop bringing their idea or point of view. That is why if more participants are ensured then COP26 should better be delayed

    Cop26 should be done as soon as possible, because in my opinion it's so serious problem that the world is facing right now and it can't be ignored

    I think that climate change has become avery bad thing for all countries of the world due to the spread of viruses, the most important of which is the corona virus,which confused the world,which worsened the state of the economy,but everything must have asolution,for example encouraging vaccination. Are there other suggestion why not?

    With improvement in technology and lifestyle we are also affescting climate which is a topic of concern for us . If it keeps going on like this we can't even think what upcoming years would bring to us . So we have to develop ourselves in such a way that we don't affect climate .
