Here’s your space to talk to kids from around the world.

By sharing what we know about climate change we’re all helping each other have a brighter future. Isn’t that a good idea?!

    This is so true! We all need to work together to help slow down climate change, and reduce our carbon footprint. It’s our future, and we want it to be beautiful! Recycling, and reusing items is a great way to help,and it’s super fun!

    My family recycles all the time. My sister and I are constintly recycling. I think it’s a good thing to recycle because it helps save trees.

    Today I read about that scientist believe that 1,000,000 animals will be extinct because of global warming.

    We have to make the change and stop climate change before it takes away our favorite animals. Polar bears are predicted to only last on Earth for about 100 years. The polar ice caps are melting, and it doesn’t only effect the lovable bears. It effects the animals it eats, because if the polar bears go extinct, the animals it eats with over-populate, causing the animals it eats to maybe go extinct. We can help by turning off lights when leaving the room, making a timer to tell us when to put the electronics down, and maybe carpool with your friends if you are going to the same place. The change needs to happen, and only we can make it.

    We need to stop climate change and global warming now because we don´t want all the animals to die or become extinct! and we don´t want a hot stormy future do we? so lets all make a change today and think about it is this what you want? or do you want a happy future? #letsstopglobalwarming

    The Sun’s heat waves reflect off of ice. Whenever carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gasses are released, they contribute to a big blanket around the earth. Heat goes into the earth, bounces off of the ice, and goes back up to the sky. Some heat goes through the blanket, but the blanket blocks some of it and traps it in the atmosphere. The trapped heat overpowers the ice and melts it, which makes less ice, which means that less heat is getting reflected back. How did the heat get there? Deep in the ocean, little plant-like creatures called Algae die and sink into the ground. They become fossil fuels, such as coal and oil. Factories burn fossil fuels, which releases CO2 (Carbon dioxide) into the air to join the blanket. Instead of burning fossil fuels to create energy, we could use windmills and solar panels. When we breathe, we absorb oxygen, and then release it as CO2. The trees absorb CO2, and release it as oxygen. The ocean also absorbs CO2. Trees and the ocean are carbon sinks. The problem is that every time the ocean absorbs heat and CO2, it expands, rises, and causes floods. And people cut down trees to use for materials. That’s called deforestation. It destroys animal habitats and has endangered and led animals to extinction. When Permafrost (Certain frozen rocks) melts, it releases methane, a greenhouse gas stronger than CO2, but thankfully shorter-lasting. Global Warming is scary, but if we work together, we can slow it down.

      I like how you are talking about carbon dioxide reflecting off the ice and how important it is to slow down carbon dioxide going into the atmosphere

      WOW!!! I didn’t know that that CO2 expands,rises, and causes floods and climate change and maybe it destroys animal habitats because its getting hotter and making wild fires around the world and it maybe be also its making droughts so animals can’t survive and that makes all animals get extinct. 🙂 :):)

    scientist believe that in 100 polar bears will be extinct because polar sea ice caps are breaking up more than they used to during the summer month

    Climate change needs to stop because, animals and plants are dying from all the carbon dioxide in the air. Also when carbon dioxide gose into the air it heats up the world. Then it melts the ice in the water. Next, it causes sea levels to rise. Finaly, houses flood forcing people out of their homes

      I agree, climate change is making a big impact on the world, and the ice melting is making it harder for polar bears to find food. In some places polars bears are going into small citys or villages to find food. It is also hurting coral, algae, krill, and all the marine animals. We can stop it by using less electricity and fossil fuels like coal and petronium.

    Global Warming is causing snow and ice caps to melt and that can cause polar bears and penguins to become extinct. Scientists predict that polar bears will only be around for about another hundred years. Hunters are also causing animals to become extinct and don’t realize what they are doing. Hunters should really stop killing animals that are going extinct and we really need to stop using so much electricty. INsted we can use solar or motion powered objects to help. In class we have flashlights that are solar powered as well as flashlights that are motion powered. This helps the enviorment from heating up to much which is causing global warming to slow down. Even tho that is helping its not enough to stop global warming. We need more people to be participating to stop global warming before its too late! Lets make a change!

      I agree because polar ice caps are mostly important for polar bears which are really majestic in my opinion. My third new favorite animal is polar bears now because they are really cool. Its so sad how polar bears are starting to go extinct due to global warming, and effecting polar ice caps, and also effecting their food chain. I believe that if we work hard to stop global warming(starting off with recycling) then we could even save a species if we work really hard!

    I know that global warming is hurting our animals.When the air gets to warm it harms the golden tree frog because the golden tree frog cool air that the fog gives them.But when it gets warmer the fog disappears and the golden tree frog is exposed to the heat.that is very bad because they have delicate skin.
