British naturalist Sir David Attenborough has spoken of problems that await greater than the epidemic. According to BBC News:

"His comments come as he is named People's Advocate for climate change ahead of the UN COP26 summit in Glasgow in November.

The meeting is viewed as crucial to keep global temperature rises below 2C. He will address world leaders at major international events over the next six months to put climate and the protection of nature at the top of their agenda."

You might have seen that several world leaders are meeting virtually at a major climate summit this week. US President Joe Biden spoke on Thursday - see what he had to say below:

You can read much about the summit so far here.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson also made the case for building back greener, saying tackling climate change is about "growth and jobs" not "expensive bunny hugging". What do you think he meant by this?

    I learnt from this video that no nation can solve the problem of global warming (climate change) on its own, as it is a global issue and not something that can be tackled within states.
    We must also follow scientist recommendations on how to keep the earth cleaner and safer and not allow the temperature of the earth to exceed 1.5°c because if it does it may cause flooding, drought and other unpalatable things for us humans.
    In summary, we should wprk together in general to tackle the issue of global warming and climate change

      I think that what she said is correct. they are many ways to do that like we can learn more about your carbon emmissions, commute by carpooling or using mass transit, plan and combine trips, drive more efficiently, switch to electriciy generated by energy sources with low or no routine emmissions of carbon emissions, remove your money from Institution that fund fossil fuels expansions, reduce electricity usage around the house, travel long distances selectively using less intensive modes of transportation, buy electric or hybrid cars, recycle air conditioner coolant, conserve energy in the home and y, choose clean energy sources and plant and care for trees.

    "Scientists tell us that this is the decisive decade - this is the decade we must make decisions that will avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis," This statement by Joe Biden really touched me. However, more effort should be put in place to ensure that we fix climate change. Everyone, including me and you, should take climate change seriusly by reducing on the amount of carbon dioxide we release in the air.

      I agree with you here because climate change is a big problem and it needs to be done sooner rather than later and people need to respect their planet instead of not caring about the planet. If people continue to not care about our planet it is going to have disastrous consequences.

    I think that as a country if we can work together with other countries we can help stop climate change Climate change is a huge problem and if one country were able to stop climate change that would be a miracle but is highly unlikely that can happen Most countries haven't done anything to help the whole world stop climate change but some countries have started to try and fix climate change like UK, Norway, France and New Zealand and many more countries.
    I can say that most people would think that every work as a team we can be able to do something about climate change and it looks like none of that is happening and countries are trying to solve it themselves.#
    If I was prime minister and I was texting something about climate change I was fix A lot of things about climate change by one of the things I would do is I would let our country cut down unless plastic because plastic is the main reason why animals are dying in seas and why our polluted so I would cut down on plastic and many more things but that would be one of the main things I would focus on

    To explain myself in this matter, due to the spread of COVID-19, sporting activities were banned temporarily. All the games were banned in the country because, the government thought that the spread of COVID-19 might have increase when the supporters go to the stadium to watch the games. So they closed all the stadia in the country.

    After reading the summary of Joe Biden's speech, I can see that the American population has really succeeded in choosing a president for them, a president in the sense of the word, his words are the words that many people are waiting to hear, including me, when he said that there is an ethical and economic imperative to act immediately on change Climate, I also like that after this pledge made by president Joe Biden, many countries have made new pledges on climate change.
    I really respect the president who cares about what threatens his country's population, and that affects on other presidents, good luck in this great step.

      We know that the US has great economic power with all countries of the world, and taking this step will definitely change the economy, so other countries will make decisions as the US has taken, I previously knew this information that the US is the most importing country of fuel, so this step will affect the economy countries that produce fuels and fossil fuels.
      Taking such a step is extremely important because the US has a huge influence over other countries in the world.

      The United States took this step because the first thing in the work is always the union because in the union is strength, and if they unite they will eliminate climate change and it will have a great impact on the world and the United States as well, and I want to add something. We the people must plant many trees and help the government to eliminate climate change.

    US President Joe Biden said, "Scientists have said that this decade is the decisive decade that we must take in decisions that avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis." He also mentioned that the United States pledged to reduce carbon emissions by 50-25% by 2030 and the British President Boris Johnson backed that argument, as Canada pledged to cut carbon emissions by 40-45% by 2030, and Japan said it would also cut emissions by 46%.
    It is really happy news and broadcasts optimism and hope in the world’s population to get rid of this problem, which increases the temperature of the earth and thus increases fires, droughts and floods.
    And end the lives of nearly 7 million people around the world, according to the statistics of the World Health Organization
    But the worrying thing is that China and India have not made any pledges to support this statement, and that makes it a bit worrying because China has been one of the largest carbon emitters since 2006, according to the Wikipedia website.
    is not it ??

    What US President Joe Biden said to reduce carbon emissions by 50-52% by 2030
    Very good at mitigating and affecting climate change
    But this requires a change in the lifestyle of many people to cut emissions
    As the population will use renewable energy sources instead of coal and oil.
    For example, they will use solar cells instead of generators that run on electricity and oil, and they will reduce the emissions of factories and airplanes.
    Consequently, they will face difficulties in the beginning, but increasing the residents' sense of the global responsibility that falls on their shoulders will greatly help them adapt to the new lifestyle.
    In addition to giving the population an opportunity to present their opinions and ideas on how to reduce climate change
    Because if the population is forced to do something they do not want, they will not be implemented, and thus the country will fall into a major crisis greater than the crisis of climate change.

    Taking decisive action creates a better future
    After watching the speech of the US President
    I thought about what he really said and from my point of view I am convinced that rebuilding in a greener way will be good for tackling climate change and that countries can preserve the environment by using clean energy to increase the economy and help overcome the crisis and avoid the worst consequences
    And as he stated in his speech about the worst consequences of the climate crisis - fires, floods, droughts and hurricanes - that it is truly frightening So we must make critical decisions, so are you convinced of that too?
    Covid-19 has also shown how human health is closely related to our relationship with the natural world. It was essential to conserve biodiversity and invest in nature-based solutions.
    And I researched well on this topic and noticed that there are those who offered good solutions, " as the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, said that we must change the course and cooperate with all to address this challenge. ", do you agree with me ?
    Women also contribute to solving these problems through their work and support for their families, as they are caregivers, food providers, and income generators for the family, which boosts the economy.I think that's what British Prime Minister Boris Johnson meant when he said tackling climate change is about growth and jobs.
    As for "Patricia Espinosa, she thinks about a climate emergency and urges unity of purpose, given that the climate knows no boundaries."
    " According to a new report prepared by the World Meteorological Organization, the economic slowdown associated with the epidemic has failed to control the drivers of climate change", do you really see this as horrific?
    Indeed, this epidemic is a global problem 😔
    Education is also an essential component of tackling climate change
    By conducting educational and public awareness campaigns about climate change and its impact, it can contribute to reducing pollution.
    Did you know that cities consume 78 percent of the world's energy and produce more than 60 percent of greenhouse gas emissions? This shows us the impact of pollution on the climate.

    However, an early warning system solution found is an adaptive measure to climate change, using integrated communication systems to help communities prepare for hazardous climate-related events. A successful early warning system saves lives, jobs, land and infrastructure, and supports long-term sustainability.
    I learned a lot in this aspect .Sharing with you is really interesting.

    India is one of the countries that cause the most climate change, yet it hasn't made any pledges on emissions and climate change, so is there a reason for that? There are many human casualties due to climate change in India, I would like to ask what if most of the countries of the world stopped using fuel, but India did not, will this affect climate change all over the world or only India?

        One of the factors that make the effects of climate change in India is its very large population, as the population's need for generating electricity increases, so they turn to use fossil fuels, and the needs of the population in transportation and transportation increase, so they depend on environmentally unfriendly means of transport, and the population is resorting to cutting trees to expand cities Industrial, expanding buildings.

    'Building back greener' in the news is a great way to encourage and inspire people to be more Eco-Friendly. For me this is because news sources, (as we learnt a bit about in the previous issue) are a smooth and easy way to get information around globally and fast. To add to that, well know people are tend to be listed to more as they are famous and others may agree with the opinions.

    We must try to keep the global temperature rise by 1.5 degrees Celsius. If it exceeds 1.5 degrees, it means more fires, floods, droughts and hurricanes, so we have to increase green areas and reduce carbon emissions.

    This is the person who takes scientists' words very seriously, do you know if all people look at what scientists say Seriously, we will not be here talking and discussing matters of our environment and the issue of climate change.
    Scientists are the saviors of the earth, but people become deaf when hearing their words, and they try to deny scientists in any way, why? Are you more touching and knowing the earth than scientists ? Or, how did you know that we live on a planet called Earth, which is one of the planets of the solar system ?

        I think that some people ignore the words of scholars due to ignorance , or they think about their personal interests and do not think about how it's Hurt the environment and the climate, such as those who cut trees to work on manufacturing furniture and selling them or using them for heating, they are thinking of providing them with job opportunities or Providing their need for warmth, and they do not think about the problem of logging that increases global warming and increasing air pollution,Or their belief that it is the responsibility of the state, and also because of the lack of a spirit of teamwork that makes the vision of individuals unified, I think if everyone knows the consequences of climate change and takes the sayings of scientists seriously, And how it will harm everyone. They will believe in the sayings of scientists and support them in their research, and there will be collective actions that achieve faster and easier results.

    In India, a few years ago they banned plastic so they now only can use plastic for major issues. This helps the environment and we all know plastic contributes to global warming. Almost all plastics are made from chemicals that come from the production of planet-warming fuels (gas, oil and even coal). Over the years, plastic has threatened wildlife and has spread toxins. Plastic pollution is a huge threat to animals and plants, as Chlorinated plastic releases chemicals in soil and then flows into groundwater and other surrounding water sources. However, plastics help us protect the environment by reducing waste,lowering greenhouse gas emissions, and saving energy at home and at work. Plastic insulation, sealants, and other building products are making our homes significantly more energy efficient, while reducing costs for heating and cooling.

    I done some research about plastic and what it can cause yet it still helps us...

    What the president Joe Biden said is very important. Yes, we all should be aware of the real danger of climate change, people's awareness is an important part of the solution of "building back greener"

    One of the most important causes of climate change is wars because it uses nuclear bombs, huge missiles and various heavy weapons, also tanks in wars need huge quantities of fossil fuels, all of these tools that are used in wars work to increase the proportion of carbon dioxide and air pollution in a large wayp, also sometimes it leads to burning forests and trees, working on the emergence of global warming and climate change.
    What I wonder about are these countries that have made new pledges on climate change will take wars and weapons into account when starting a building back greener? Will it limit wars and reduce the manufacture of nuclear weapons?
    I think that this step will take a lot and cause trouble because many developed countries consider nuclear weapons as protection for them in problems with other countries.

    Our future is in the hands of our reality, we must overcome the obstacles of reality as soon as possible, if we do not act now, in the future we will not find time to move, we have to reduce carbon emissions before 2030, but everyone is preoccupied with the virus, what is this? !! Oh people, we have to think about our future, so let's stop using traditional cars, we must boycott fossil fuels, it is just a pollutant for the environment and a fundamental factor in climate change, let's stop using plastic, do not throw waste on the ground, conserve the water bodies, think about the future of generations, there are many environmentally friendly resources in the environment, but no one uses them , unfortunately , the opportunity is in our hands, but we do not seize it, although we are supposed to we seize it as soon as possible
    Let's support experts and scholars, let's support countries and world leaders, to encourage them to move, together and together, to bring peace to the world.

    ( But the problems that await us within the next five to ten years are even greater)
    This sentence from Mr. David speech activates my mind to think what are these problems ? I think, it could be :
    * unpredictable floods most of the coastal regions.
    * Desertification in other areas.
    * Rapid extinction of animals.
    * Increase the salinity of drinking water.
    *More lung diseases .
    * Fetal malformation.
    * looking for different sources of food after lots of starvation.

    I would like to ask, if after this pandemic, another global problem will occur, will they keep their "Building back greener" decision, or will they deal the same with dealing with this upcoming problem and climate change, which is ignoring climate change and exerting all efforts to solve this problem?

    Everybody should come together and stop the climate change crisis.

    Building back greener isn't going to be easy because each country needs to act now otherwise we will never get this problem/crisis sorted

    In my opinion the whole world is never going to work together but the world have the most power because there are more average people in the world than the people who have the most power, so I think that even if the areas in the world that make a small change it might effect things in a good way. :)

    I think everybody knows that climate crisis is bad but do they fully understand the dangers of it? Probably not.

    I think everybody should come together and make this world a better place because I see on climate news there is a thing called noise pollution. Noise pollution comes from mostly planes because planes make loud noise in the air.

    "I am greatly honored to be given a chance to advocate people.
    The coming meetings about cop 26 and the other issues could not be more but the important moment that we should have is to be with international or global agreement.
    The epidemic has shown us how crucial it is to find agreement among the Nations if we are to solve such worldwide problems.
    But the problems that await us within the future like in the next five to 10 years are even greater. It is crucial that this meetings in Glasgow cop 26 have success and that at last donations will come together to solve the crippling problems that the world and a global now faces. That means if we come together we can solve the crippling problems the world and the countries around the globe now face.

      It is true, rich countries must also help the poor countries in dealing with climate change, but what worries us at the same time is the problems that are occurring now and that will occur in the future among the countries of the world about many things, which makes them not reach a collective solution and a solution that must be taken on a large scale broad on climate change, this is the first result of international problems, the other result is the conclusion of the Third World War or any war that makes these countries use nuclear weapons and missiles and all of them will make the matter worse because they work to increase gas and carbon emissions and increase global warming and the problem of climate change is expanding and aggravating, the consequences are bad for the environment and the climate, as we see, so countries must carry out reconciliations and public relations between them to reach collective solutions.

    Tackling climate change is about"growth and jobs" not"expensive bunny hugging" (what do you think he meant this?)
    First of all ,When UK prime minister Boris Johnson said tackling climate change meant that we are in a difficult problem or situation of climate change.
    Secondly, when is said"growth and jobs" not "expensive bunny hugging"the prime minister of UK Boris Johnson was simply meaning growing and jobs are not expensive bunny hugging or cannot be tightly around them .
    Joining the whole sentence which tackling climate change"growth and jobs" not"expensive bunny hugging.
    In simple terms, it means that a difficult situation of problem of climate change is not growing and not job not expensively enjoying a particular activity nor tightly cought on something.
    In other terms it simply means that is or climate change is not growing and not a job May the expensive nor enjoying a particular activity and tightly caught on something.

    According to the news on the TV ,the radio on the website or the internet people when you speak about climate change, most of them aren't putting emphasis on it while talking about it under multimedias. when most people around the world learn and know about climate change people will start to fight against others who carry out activities that cause climate changes.
