What Should Adults Do?


We can do a lot to slow down climate change, but so can adults! Sometimes they just need a friendly reminder….

Ruby and friends in the United States tell adults “Give us hope!” You can sing along!

Give us hope. Global warming’s a problem.

Can you see? Look at the air!

Can you feel? The temperature is rising!

Give us hope, and kids’ll show you the way!

Help stop global warming and create a good future for kids around the world!

    people should stop using cares more and start using bikes more it saves the world evrey cent counts.


  2. Jude USA says:

    Adults can inform, build other power sources (Mills, Solar Panels, etc…), recycle, and not burn fossil fuels or cut down too many trees.


  3. Cleo Usa says:

    Adults need to take a hint from the kids, to help slow down climate change. But the more us kids work together to talk about it, the more adults will understand it is a matter of our quality of life. They will understand we cannot do everything ourselves, and they need to help us by building wind turbines to harness wind energy, and buy solar panels to use the suns energy. We need to show them that we all have to unite to help slow down climate change! 🙂


  4. AlexandraUSA says:

    Adults want their kids to have a brighter future so they should help make that happen. Adults can stop smoking if they do, they can recycle, they can get solar panals so they don’t burn more fossil fuels. Adults can help by riding bikes, or walking some where that’s a short distance.


  5. Nate USA says:

    I think that adults should buy hybrid cars.These cars burn a lot less fossil fuels.The cars use half electric-half gas.That would put a lot less pollution into the air. That would slow down climate change because we aren’t speeding up global warming as fast,because we are reducing the amount of greenhouse gasses in the air.Global warming causes climate change.Therefore, we will be slowing down climate change.


  6. Oscar USA says:

    Adults should be encouraging kids to slow down climate change.Also they should learn to reuse, reduce, and recycle.They’re the ones that are causing this because they are using cars instead of bike.They should follow these rules because cars can pollute the air when they’re being used.


  7. Mia USA says:

    adults do more disaster to our earth than kids because they don’t know as much as kids do today. If they go on this site or learn more mabey our earth will become more clean and fresh


  8. Nick U.S.A says:

    An adult can buy an energy powered car, switch to solar panels. This doesn’t use as much energy. This is a good way to slow down climate change. Let’s start doing things that will HELP the planet!


  9. Benjamin USA says:

    Adults can do a lot to slow down climate change. They can buy and use electric cars and take a bus to work instead of driving in their own car. In an electric car, the engine is electric so it doesn’t use gas. A car that needs gas burns fossil fuels and that pollutes the air with CO2. Electric cars don’t burn fossil fuels. Taking the bus also slows down climate change. Instead of everyone burning fossil fuels it their own car, they burn less fossil fuels by everyone taking a bus. Adults can help slow down climate change!


  10. Sofia USA says:

    Adults should try to walk or bike more instead of using their car, unless they have an electric or hybrid car. They should because cars pollute the earth. If more people walk or bike, there wouldn’t be as much global warming.


  11. Josh says:

    Adults should use electric cars. Electric cars do not use gas so fossil fuels do not burn. That is better because not as much carbon dioxide will go into the air. Wich means there won’t be as much carbon dioxide in the air.
