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!

    One way adults can slow down global warming is by carpooling. One example that shows carpooling helps slow down global warming is because there is less air pollution going in the air. If you meet up with a friend, carpool and use as less cars as you can. This is why carpooling helps slow down global warming.

    What adults should do is buy smart for the road. This means they should buy more efficient gas and green cars. Now I don’t mean buy green cars what I mean is to buy low-greenhouse gas cars. This help because it leaves less carbon in the air and save you more money for fun trips like Disney World. That is why adults should buy smart for the road

    A easy way adults can do to help slow down climate change is to change their light bulbs. All they have to do is buy eco-friendly light bulbs and install them. Eco-friendly lights use a lot less energy then normal light bulbs do. Also eco-friendly lights last a lot longer than normal lights do!

    One way adults can help slow down climate change is by taking short showers instead of baths. Taking showers uses up less energy than taking baths. The energy comes from the power plant, that makes energy by burning fossil fuels, then it goes to your bathroom. This why adults should take short showers instead of baths.

    Adults should be teaching and encouraging kids to do something about climate change because there are many ways to help.Adults can buy solar panels and use LED light bulbs.Adults also can plant more trees to there yard and tell friends and family to do the same.Let’s start doing they’s things now and help the planet.I hope you learned something from reading this.
