    Kids could use bikes instead of cars because cars give off CO2 which causes global warming, which is bad for our environment!


  2. Amelia USA says:

    Kids should turn off electronics so power will be saved.


  3. Sabrina USA says:

    I think that kids and adults should always turn off lights when not in use because any little bit saved can help make a difference in the world. It helps slow down climate change.


  4. Lauren USA says:

    Kids can help slow down climate change by riding their bikes, rather than going in a car. Kids can also avoid littering our planet Earth, and keep Earth clean because it is our only home.


  5. Alex USA says:

    kids can plant trees so they take Co2 in also kids can unplug charger when something is full battery you can also turn off the lights.You can also use re-usable water bottles. Also you can turn off electronics when your not using them.


  6. Rian USA says:

    When kids have sports games they usually bring water bottles, some kids use plastic ones that you throw out after you use them but some kids use reusable bottles which you use it every time instead of throwing it out. Plastic bottles that you throw out hurt the environment so try to switch to reusable ones to help slow down climate change.


  7. Gabi USA says:

    I think something kids should do to help Climate Change is to turn of the lights when you are watching TV. And plus, You can see the TV better when you turn of the lights! (For me.)


  8. MARIA USA says:

    Everyone should turn off your lights and plant more trees more, because trees absorb CO2 and that is good for our earth.


  9. Annabelle USA says:

    One way that kids can slow down climate change is to carpool. If you and your friend are going to the same place, you can carpool and just take one car. That way, you release less carbon dioxide, because you only take one car.


  10. JOSEPH USA says:

    kids should use bikes more often because cars produce CO2 which causes global warming and turn off lights because power plants burn coal to produce power and kids should recycle and use re-usable water bottles because it takes a lot of power to burn plastic


  11. Jack USA says:

    I think that kids should use more reuseable water botals


  12. Laura USA says:

    My favorite idea was to use reusable water bottles to help stop all the plastic coming from plastic water bottles.
