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!

    When you get light bulbs you could buy LED lights. Not only do they use less energy the don’t produce heat!


  2. Ria USA says:

    Adults can get LED lighting for their homes. doing so would be a win-win, because LED lighting uses less electricity, so the Earth is suffering a little less, and so are you on hot days because LEDs don’t emit so much heat.

    my parents will help plant trees in our backyard and get LED lights 🙂

    adults should stop useing cars case they give off cardin doxi they should use eletric cars


  5. Mark Usa says:

    Adults should carpool with friends for long trips and ride bikes for short trips. If adults want their kids to have a good future they have to help slow down climate change


  6. Ella USA says:

    Adults should stop using cars so much, they should carpool with other people or ride bikes. Using cars puts lots of CO2 into the air, which of course we are trying to stop. Also, more adults should get solar panels. Sure, it costs a lot to get them installed, but they save money AND use energy from the sun, meaning they aren’t using electricity!


  7. Tommy USA says:

    I think kids and adaluts should use buses to go to work ad school


  8. Anna USA says:

    There’s so much that kids can do but thee are also so many adults in the world. Adults can do even more things than kids can like getting an electric car or using public transportation to get to work.


  9. BillyUSA says:

    Adults should use LEDlight instead.
    Adults should make walkable cities.


  10. Vanessa USA says:

    Adults could build more walkable cities. That would put less carbon dioxide into the air than using cars.
