    It is a global emergency that has already been killed on a mass scale and threatens to send millions more to early graves. As its effects spread, it could destabilize entire economies and overwhelm poorer countries lacking resources and infrastructure. But this is the climate crisis, not the coronavirus. Governments are not assembling emergency national plans and you’re not getting push notifications transmitted to your phone breathlessly alerting you to dramatic twists and developments from South Korea to Italy. I live in Lebanon exactly in Ankoun no one cares about ate change and they don't try to reduce it but they are s about Covid-19 and they prevent going into the supermarket and they are trying to reduce the numbers of the people that have covid-19.

      Climate change is a phenomenon that is little known around the world,and many people are not aware of it and its danger.
      While covid 19 is a virus that has caused a great panic in the world and we have seen through the media how dangerous it is and we aware of the number of its victims which exceeded 3 millions.
      We saw that in one year, the virus Corona occupied the first ranks on communication sites and in the main headlines of the news.
      The WHO also talked about this virus that killed millions of people.
      Therefore, people are taking precautions to protect themselves from this pandemic that may lead to end their lives in a short time.
      For me, that is the reason that explains why people are not reacting to climate change with the same urgency as covid 19.

        I love what I saw in the post. Most people focus on the damages covid-19 is making because it is a fast killer i.e. it kills faster than climate changes. In other to avoid the death brought about by the pandemic, people takes precautions to prevent its results while they totally neglect the results of climate change. Thanks for the post once again.

        Thank you courageous starfruit , yes climate change is a little phenomenal that is not known by other people in the world but some of them listen and understand climate changes and they are causes. But if you want people worldwide to know about climate changes as covid-19, people around the globe should be taught about climate changes.

I would really like for at least some of the Government's attention towards climate change. If we don't do something now, then our world will only get worse.

People in your country should fight against global issues such as global warming. And we should also pray to God 🙏 to help people with such bad heart that you want climate changes yes they are bad to people.

        Huh, lie. If you really know about climate change and corona virus, you would know the truth. So what does climate change do, and what does covid-19 do? If you ask me, climate change is destroying the earth as we speak. Scientists have started to plant on mars because by their research, we might not be able to live on earth by the year 2030. Usually where I live in, it is very cold, and I have to cover myself with a blanket tightly. But now with the climate change, I can't even sleep without soaking my clothes in water. We need to take precautions with the global warming, so we will be able to survive around the year 2030. With the new technology coming in by cars running on wind and solar, we will stop the burning of fossil fuels. But the real problem is that the government isn't doing anything about the climate change, but for corona we have to wear face masks like freaks. That is why people are reacting more to covid-19 than climate change, because the government is making climate change to seem less important. So we need to work as individuals and proud citizens of our countries to stop this climate change. Maybe we might even reach the year 6012. Thanks for your time.

      Hi ! Am efficient_keyboard .
      Climate is defined as the average weather condition of a place over a large period of time.
      Covid_19 is a communicable disease that can lead to a state of discomfort in the body and can also lead to death.
      In Nigeria climate change does not affect the economy of our country as covid_19 did.
      Covid_19 caused lost of job and also increase the rate of unemployment in Nigeria.
      Also climate change did not cause lock down, but covid_19 did and caused suspension of going out. We all know that in Nigeria we are not use to wearing of facemasks, only doctor's does that, but now everywhere you go no facemasks no entry

        No, not every one. Some people like me, lived in cold places . Well, I used the word 'lived' because Jos city used to be a very cold place but now its like we have almost never felt the wind. Some times, it feels like it wants to rain and other times it looks like you cant even differentiate morning from noon. Climate change has been noted as a case in Nigeria but some cases more than the others.

        Hello Olivia,

        I am from Nigeria and I think that it depends on where the person stays. I live in Jos and it is usually cold but nowadays its getting hotter. Some people in some parts of Nigeria don't experience anything. But others may complain of things like flooding caused by rise in sea level, desertification or even land degradation.

        No!!! i disagree. Unless you don't usually come out of your house or comfort zone, you will not really feel and realize the impact of climate in Nigeria. If you actually take time to come out of you comfort zone you will realize that the weather is actually getting hot than it was before. For example somewhere like plateau state,jos in Nigeria, which is usually cold has started becoming very hot. And this is just a tip of the iceberg of some of the things happening in Nigeria

      that is another reason why covid-19 is more important to be treated but still people need to also learn more about climate change because in some people's countries and cities climate change is not even talked about or even people even look at what it is but could be 19 is around the world everyone knows about it.

      In my opinion, climate change is more dangerous than the Corona virus, because climate change results in a lot of damage to the environment, including desertification, increased drought and soil degradation, and all these factors lead to a decrease in agricultural production and this leads to a decrease in the economic situation, as agriculture has an important role in Raise the country's economy, as it plays a role in all industries
      And when the country's economy drops, the state will not be able to provide the vaccines and medical materials necessary to combat the virus, and thus the number of deaths and infections will increase, and this situation may lead to revolutions, famines, and so on. The state will not be able to fight famines and revolutions and thus facilitate the attack and occupation of them.
      I think I analyzed the topic too much

    In my country Nigeria climate change is not really a topic to be worried about because not much people care about it but I would like to reach out even if it is in the smallest way I can because Nigeria is slowly being affected by climate change by the sun it is emitting a lot of UV rays and those rays can affect humanity and agriculture in Nigeria.
    Even the rainy season is coming in late and the crops need nature's water.

      In addition to that , several studies confirm that being exposed to poor air quality for a long time leaves people at greater risk of being infected by COVID_19 and dying from it.

    I think the climate word means most people (the sun _ rain _ wind_ cold_ ice) If you are someone living in southern Europe and Africa should know that temperatures are there very high and their rain is less for North Europe and Canada. Moreover, the entire world is witnessing a significant change in the climate, for example, people see large pieces of snow falling into the sky. What will happen if you see a ball of light in the sky. The experts and scientists are launching these balls in lightning.
    Climate change means the difference in the Earth's global climate or in regional climates over time.

    It describes changes in the state of the atmosphere over time scales ranging from decades to millions of years. These changes can be caused by processes inside the Earth, forces from outside (e.g. variations in sunlight intensity) or, more recently, human activities. Ice ages are prominent examples.

    Climate change is any significant long-term change in the expected patterns of average weather of a region (or the whole Earth) over a significant period of time. Climate change is about abnormal variations to the climate, and the effects of these variations on other parts of the Earth. Examples include melting of the ice caps at the South Pole and North Pole. These changes may take tens, hundreds or perhaps millions of years.

      We saw that in one year, the virus Corona occupied the first ranks on communication sites and in the main headlines of the news.
      The WHO also talked about this virus that killed millions of people.
      Therefore, people are taking precautions to protect themselves from this pandemic that may lead to end their lives in a short time.
      For me, that is the reason that explains why people are not reacting to climate change with the same urgency as covid 19.

          When corona virus just hit our planet all people was talking about it and its effects.
          We saw that in one year this virus killed millions of people.
          And it's now known around the world and everyone is taking precautions.
          But climate change is a distant problem caused by humans and we don't think we wiil be affected by it until 2050 or 2100.
          That's why people are not very interested in this phenomenon as they are interested in the pandemic.

    Climate: is the long-term average of the weather; It is usually calculated over a period of 30 years. Some storms are very unusual and can cause bodily harm (such as influenza), and the country of Donwich was once an important port; But in the fourteenth century high waves and violent storms struck. The region most of the city disappeared under the sea; Britain's worst storm killed more than 8,000 people in 1703; The worst flood in history was in 1887 in China. When the Yellow River overflowed and killed about a million people!

    My name is assured_aspect, I live a nomadic life in Nigeria because my parents are diplomats, because of that I am being exposed to how Nigeria’s geographical sites are and a lot of traditions I never knew of.
    Nigeria is the most populous country in tropical Africa, it is located in west Africa and apart from the Atlantic Ocean in the south, she is surrounded by Francophone (French speaking) countries, and also she is bounded by other countries in the west, north, east and north-east which are the Benin republic, Niger republic, Cameroun republic and the chad republic respectively. I wish people knew that in Nigeria there are a lot of ethnic groups with their differences in traditions and religious beliefs, yet we still strive to live together neglecting our cultural differences. I was able to see how great the highlands and the beautiful tourist sites Nigeria have. And also this have exposed me to the different cultural festivals we have that will affiliate you to visit Nigeria. This is a good thing for people to know because Nigeria is a great place for people to get to explore and get to know about.

    A quick question that I’d like to ask is
    Do you think that climate change isactually helping us with the virus because as many people say climate change increases the hotness in the world and according to statistics when its hot the coronavirus tends to die down? Would you agree with that??

Climate change can refer to any change in global or regional climate patterns. I think you would find it interesting to do more research about global climate change.

    Through my experience, where I live in Palestine in Gaza City, I believe that the climate changed slowly and gradually, not noticeable, but what happened in Covid-19 led people to respond quickly to the climate change because of the gravity of the matter and the speed of its spread and its high mortality, but in the majority it contributed to limiting the spread of this epidemic through gloves and masks Medical and the use of sterilization and permanent hygiene, the combined efforts of the people, the health services and the police, led to the stabilization of the situation, the decline in the rates of injured, dead, and contacts, and Covid-19 affected practical life, stopping factories and reducing traffic congestion, which This led to a decrease in environmental pollution and the result was the closure of the ozone layer. As for education, it has positive effects, such as the closure of educational centers and schools. This led to a reduction in the spread of the epidemic and the continuation of tele-education .Thanks

    The world is now on a very big battle
    Where climate change, the world and covid19 is fighting ,but who is the world?who is climate change?and who is covid19.
    Covid19 is a infectious disease that affect the respiratory organs of living organism and caused by a newly discovered coronavirus that have killed a more than billion people in the world. futher more,
    Climate change is a long term change of the average weather pattern that have come to define Earth's local regional and global climate and it has killed a lot of people in the world for example in 1887 in china,when the yellow River overflowed and killed a more than a thousand people and if we talk about the world it refers to us or we the human beings
    So if we are the caused of these climate change and the spreading of the diseases called covid 19then we can do enough to reduce it.

Mainly affecting the respiratory system organs such as the lungs causing difficultly in breathing and death in the short run, I greatly agree that we MUST all take part to see that we maintain our health status good mainly through washing our hands frequently with running water and soap, taking frequently juice reach in vital vitamins such as vitamin C. On the other reclamation of wet lands should be avoided, as when rivers flood property and lives are lost hence leading poor standards of living.

    I think the pandemic had more effect than the climate change which is more frequent in Nigeria, people had to adapt to new changes for example the working people had to stay at home with no option than to concentrating on agriculture for example farming for the family which greatly increase the Nigerian agricultural sector.

    I am from Nigeria
    The COVID-19 pandemic had more effect than the climate change due to the fact that most people tend to easily adapt faster to climate change than the all the inconveniences caused by the covid19 pandemic. Most people were not used to wearing face masks. Use of face mask over time also imposes harm on the body for example prolong use of face mask can lead to spread of disease if not washed, and could also harm the eye. People were also forced to engage in social distancing which also hard some negative effects in the society some of these effects include: social distancing presents the dangers of increasing social rejection, and the loss of a sense of community, it negatively affects learning and growth as schools and other public places were forced to shut down, social distancing also prevents people from effectively socializing, which is a fundamental human need.
    People make efforts in abiding by the COVID-19 guidelines in Nigeria, yet still covid19 cases keep increasing. More so, the covid19 pandemic apparently has caused more death than climate change in Nigeria.

        i vehemently disagree to the wearing of a mask although they have contributed greatly to the combat of the covid 19. Masks have also affected the health of people living in a warm environment. After wearing a mask the body temperature increases, the heart rate increases,blood saturation decreases which ultimately leads to a decline in health and personnel comfort thus it reduces the life span of people both young and old.

          If we do not wear masks, we will not be able to confront the epidemic and reduce its spread, and thus the virus will spread and infect everyone, and so we will face a major health crisis.
          Also, the Ministry of World Health always publishes useful information about the virus that can save us, but I have not seen information saying that masks are harmful to our health.

            Do you also do research? I'm a concerned person and I personally don't like wearing masks but I'll just have to agree with you because of the covid 19 situation. Masks have really affected people's health. How ? Think about those who are asthmatic their situation gets worse because they have to breath through layers of cloth which actually increases the heart rate that's if you've read my comment. The heart struggles to pump blood in the body due to insufficient supply of oxygen. And yes, I do trust my source and consulted many experts about it. So I think you should also make own research and see for yourself. Thank you

    Most people are not reacting to climate change with the same as covid-19 because the negative effects of climate change is not more deadly like that of covid-19.If the harmful effects of climate change was more deadly and claiming a lot of lives like covid-19,people would give attention to it and find the nearest possible means to get rid of it.Since the harmful effects of climate change can be controlled better than that of covid-19, people neglect the climate change which is occurring in their environment.

    Corona virus had ruined the world and has had a huge impact on people's lives. And to lower it, governments took risks to protect their citizens from this pandemic. These risks had a clear impact on the environment as well as the Coronavirus pandemic affected the environment and the climate in a terrible way.

    The ruining of traveling and movement, and the decrease in social activities, led to a decrease in the level of air pollution and a decrease of the equivalent of 25% of carbon dioxide which scientists estimated saved at least 7,700 living species over a two month period.

    In Italy, scientists revealed that nitrogen dioxide has also decreased, and that the water channels in Venice had became very clear and clean.

    In addition, global warming has been lowered by 30% for the first time in thirty years.
    Other than the damage from the pandemic, the environment has improved surely to the better.

    Many people do not react to climate change than covid-19 because, the covid-19 has really had a negative impact on Ghana. Prices of food commodities increased. Ghana was importing some food commodities like rice, oil, processed raw food like tomato paste and others from other countries. But because of covid-19 the government locked down the borders of Ghana, so Ghana was not able to import more food commodities, because of that the less food commodities left in Ghana increased in prices. Also, the climate change was not that dangerous and serious to the covid -19 disease and that did not make people react to the climate change.

    I want to share how Covid19 has affected me as a student and how it affected my family and the social life in general either by commitment to wearing masks, social distancing and not sharing personal things. Then the situation has worsened and the numbers of Coronavirus cases have increased which made the government take several actions to limit the spread of the virus such as forcing the closure of schools, institutions, markets and universities. I cannot deny that there has been a positive side to this quarantine. starting from having more time to spend with my family and discover my hidden hobbies and interests, away from the tension of studying and taking exams. I also experienced online learning which is a new experience for almost all students in my country that helped us discover the real value of our great teachers. on the other hand, the spread of Corona and the quarantine have helped reduce air pollution! How ?? The quarantine and the closure of cities have prevented the use of cars and vehicles, which helped in reducing gas emissions. Has anyone ever imagined that there can be any good impacts of Corona virus ??

      From the evidence so far, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in ALL AREAS, including areas with hot and humid weather conditions. Regardless of climate, adopt protective measures if you live in, or travel to an area reporting COVID-19. The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is by frequently cleaning your hands. By doing this you eliminate viruses that may be on your hands and avoid infection that could occur by then touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.

    love my homeland, Palestine, which I was born and live in.
    Palestine is located on the Asian continent, and it is an Arab country and its capital is Jerusalem. It is the country in the world the most civilizations have gone through, as the number of civilizations has passed by 22 civilizations. The first was the Canaanite civilization. This is a civilization that I want to show a part of, so that you can get to know it.
    The Canaanites were interested in music and literature. That comes on top of the pyramid in this civilization. And what helped them to do so was their religious rituals, which came in the form of songs. And vocals.
    Musical instruments and ancient manuscripts were found evidence of this. The Canaanites lived in quarrelsome homes and palaces. Use cooking utensils such as cups, jugs and saucers. He found traces of their tools indicating that. They were famous for making weaving, dyeing and embroidery, as evidenced by their drawings engraved on the walls of ancient Canaanite temples.And their effects also include agricultural tools such as sickles, which they used for harvesting. This indicates their interest in agriculture.
    They took care of building cities, and the oldest of their cities was Jericho, which remains to this day and is considered the oldest city in the world. Many cities such as Acre, Gaza and other cities, some of which remain until now, and some have disappeared.
    And the metalworking industry flourished, so the Canaanites used to make axes, daggers, and spears.
    All this indicates the depth of the Canaanite civilization that inhabited Palestine for thousands of years. This is part of what I learned from my grandparents and my school and I loved to share it with you.

In Nigeria there are about 371 ethnic groups and 500 spoken languages, and with those ethnic groups they have their different festivals; like the new yam festival which is celebrated yearly by the Igbos. And though Nigeria is diverse in culture and tradition we still strive to live together sharing same aspirations and ambitions. Nigeria is a beautiful and a great country despite the problems we face a lot of times we still stand as a strong nation, here in Nigeria there are a lot of wonderful tourist site which I would want a lot of people to visit and get to know about my country.

    Why aren’t people reacting to climate change quickly as they did to covid 19.
    I live in the middle east, my country is Palestine where climate change doesn’t cause as many dead’s, as covid19 as well as its impact on human daily life and relationships.
    In fact, covid19 (corona) has two faces; cursing and blessing on human being specially the direct impact on human being , was extremely heavy, many fall dead alone in quarantine, schools, offices and shopping all stopped and become very dangerous, hugging, kissing, checking hands all ceased and became prohibited, many passed away and buried without family, friends fare well, many businessmen bankrupted ,many workers fired and companies closed .
    Sons run away from their parents, friends, neighbors too.
    In fact, the covid19 considered as the most dangerous and infected disease ever and more dangerous than climate change or natural disasters on human beings.
    Keeping distance, staying at home, not visiting relatives, friends or participating in social events become the only resolution to stop disease spreading.
    That gives more chance to the other animals (wild animals) to feel free in wondering in the streets indeed they took the role of human beings
    , due to this crucial time, learning, teaching, communicating ,achieving sales and holding deals on line and that is the curse of covid19 which still has it, sever impact on human being to the un known time.
    The blessing face of covid19 has its direct impact on climate because the industrial pollution decreased and water, air, and land transportation, pollution had decreased to the great extant and human beings rubbish too, because of the quarantine
    , I pray to Allah on behalf of all the world to stop this pandemic and current vaccine could save people life and re back to our normal life, school, shopping, going outdoors, meeting, hugging friends, relatives.
    Come on all where eve you are and pray with me

    Hey everyone, I think climate has an immediate effect on my countries environment both positive and negative. Positively, climate has influenced growth of forests which have helped in the improvement of the o-zone layer and refreshment of the environment air conditions.Climate of the mountainous areas has helped in the growth of montane forests which include the temperate and bamboo forests, these have encouraged economic activities such as lumbering and development of industries in our country through production of goods due to the presence of adequate raw materials hence creating more jobs n the economy and more employment opportunities to the citizens of the country to mention but a few, on the other hand climate has also negatively affected our country in many different ways.Through heavy rain fall from the raising air from the oceans, lakes, rivers and seas which condense and form rainfall has led to the floodind of rivers such as river Nyamwamba in Western Uganda with it's source on mountain Rwenzori has destroyed peoples property such as crops, houses and loss of lives among people living near it's source.

Nigeria is a very nice place despite people’s views on Nigeria itself. From my opinion I feel Nigeria is a blessed country and that Nigeria is one of the happiest countries in the world and what you should know about this country is that Nigerians despite the difficulties every Nigerian go’s through every day and the way we as citizens of Nigerians have painted Nigeria in the worlds eyes black by the corrupt things we do we are still one of the happiest people on earth. Our people have a lot of fun here socializing with each other, the Aura of our culture make us learn about each other, and we are most of the times jolly again, despite our difficulties.

    A new night mare ( a new disease) has come upon the whole world that brings us death .
    Corona virus was the cause of the solution to the problem of climate change.
    This virus led to climate change.
    The response to the Corona epidemic was rapid, with different reactions to the issue of climate change.
    Because Corona is a direct threat to human life.
    However, climate change has an impact in the future not in the short term.
    But in my country of Palestine we faced many difficulties to confront the Corona virus, including ( lack of hospitals _ lack of medicines and vaccines )
    Corona virus affected my life and the lives of more than a billion students
    Because schools are closed .
    Corona has positives ( closeness with family improving social relations.
    In the end , l tell you my friends , don't worry . The day will come when the Corona pandemic ends .
    How many people will die ?
    Is it better to stay at home or living with Corona virus .

    Hello I am live in Gaza City, I believe that the climate changed slowly and gradually, not noticeable, but what happened in Covid-19 led people to respond quickly to the climate change because of the gravity of the matter and the speed of its spread and its high mortality, but in the majority it contributed to limiting the spread of this epidemic through gloves and masks Medical and the use of sterilization and permanent hygiene, the combined efforts of the people, the health services and the police, led to the stabilization of the situation, the decline in the rates of injured, dead, and contacts, and Covid-19 affected practical life, stopping factories and reducing traffic congestion, which this led to a decrease in environmental pollution and the result was the closure of the ozone layer. As for education, it has positive effects, such as the closure of educational centers and schools. This led to a reduction in the spread of the epidemic and the continuation of tele-education. Thank you

    Hello everyone I will answer the question Because covid-19 is spreading quickly and very infectious and its symptoms appear after two or more days of infection, as compared to the climate change that takes years to impact. therefore they do not care because it does not immediate.

    This is because Covid-19 is an immediate issue and Climate change has been going on for a long time, covid-19 is recent and we are hardly scratching the surface with solving it, however, we have been at the issue with Climate change for a long time and there are already have many systems in place to help the issue with climate change. Although Covid-19 may overall have less impact than climate change, however in the short term the covid-19 impact may be just as great if not greater than climate change. Covid-19 might not harm as many people however, it is a new issue that is unknown which currently makes it more urgent than climate change in this current situation.

    Hello, I am a girl, I am 12 years old. I live in Rafah, Palestine.
    I was wandering with my father one day in the city’s markets, and I saw a lot of various goods. We are now in the month of Ramadan. This month has its own rituals and great stature. In it the market is crowded. The merchants offer their different goods of all shapes and varieties.
    I saw meat, vegetables, fruits, and clothes, but what struck my attention was a beautiful thing from the old chandeliers, pottery.
    They are beautiful clay utensils of different shapes and sizes. I want to tell you a little bit about pottery making in my country.
    My father told me that pottery making is one of the oldest popular artifacts, as it dates back to the fourth century BC. Pottery is made of clay that is shaped by hand using a wheel, and these pottery pieces are decorated to dry before being put into the oven. It's really cool.My grandmother told me that the ancient Palestinians used clay pots to store foods such as oil, milk, jam and ghee, and that they were used in cooking and serving food as well. It is also used for drinking as the water inside becomes cold and has a special taste,
    Now they are only rarely used as utensils for food or drinking, but rather for decoration or as pots for growing young seedlings of flowers and others.
    It is a nice thing to get to know an important industry, one of the oldest industries that indicates the civilization of this country.
    I would like to inform you that pieces of pottery were found in archaeological excavations and surveys, and it seems that pottery in the ancient era is different from the pottery of this time. This is what I would like to know in the future, God willing.
    I consider pottery making to be one of the rich industries that we must stand at and deal with with research,Because it is one of the things that are less used today after glass and plastic vessels appeared.
    At the end of my market tour, my father bought me two pieces of pottery. I am happy about that, and I will always keep them.
    I am wondering . I wonder what will happen to pottery in my country. Will it stay the same? Or will it decrease with the lack of demand for it today? Or will it be completely over! This is what I do not hope will happen.
    Thank you for reading this topic. In God’s Care 🙂

    Hello my friends, I am from the beautiful Gaza Strip. I invite you to visit my city, because it has beautiful tourist attractions. One of the most important ones is the corner market. Let me tell you a little bit about it.
    Despite the multiplicity of markets in Gaza City, the Zawiya market is at the forefront of these markets in terms of importance and fame. It is a wonderful cultural and tourist landmark. It is the most important and oldest popular market in Gaza City. It was called Souk Al-Zaweya due to the large number of zawiyas in its buildings that were built during the Mamluk era hundreds of years ago.
    Indian soldiers who arrived in Gaza in the past took places there to do the trade with which they came from India. As for the Muslims, they turned one of these angles into a place of worship and prayer, then turned into a mosque. And it exists to this day. Today it is called the Zawyet al-Hunud Mosque, because Suq al-Zawiya has its own character, as all goods are spread in it.Which means people from everywhere, especially in the month of Ramadan. When you enter this market, your time goes back hundreds of years, because its ancient stone construction. But he is beautiful, he is a prominent landmark in my country. I hope that the day will come when you visit the corner market. I am sure you will be pleased. You are welcome.

    Because Palestine is located within the eastern Mediterranean region, climate changes have affected it, as it is represented by desertification, increased drought and soil degradation, which will lead to a decrease in agricultural production and a rise in temperatures to a minimum. That hit me in the summer of 2015.
    Climate change has not caused deaths in my country, but it has severely affected nature.
    Because of its influence on nature, it affected the agricultural production of our country, which affected the economic situation.
    In my opinion, the experts should benefit from climate change. They should turn the tables and fix all the downsides of climate change
    And this is by thinking about the positives of climate change. For example: It is possible to increase the cultivation of crops that need hot weather in the summer so that we can increase the production of some crops, which helps in raising the economy
    This way we can fix some of the negative things that climate change causes, and if the experts think more, in my opinion, they will find a solution and turn all the negatives of climate change into positive things.

I live in Palestine as its climate is moderate and favorable and does not affect the lives of the residents

        It results in a lot of damage to the environment, including desertification, increased drought and soil degradation, and all these factors lead to a decrease in agricultural production and this leads to a decrease in the economic situation, agriculture has an important role in raising the country's economy, as it plays a role in all industries The deterioration of the economy will lead to revolutions and famines, and thus the state will not be able to fight famines and revolutions and thus facilitate the attack and occupation of them

                Of course , Climate change is one of the most dangerous natural phenomena facing humanity, as it is not a virus that can be stopped with a vaccine.
                At the outset I will explain its impact on the state
                Climate change leads to a lot of damage to the environment, including desertification, increased drought and soil degradation, and all these factors lead to a decrease in agricultural production and this leads to a decline in the economic situation. Agriculture has an important role in raising it, as agriculture plays a role in all industries, the deterioration of the economy will lead to revolutions and famines, and thus the state will not be able to fight famines and revolutions and thus facilitate its attack and occupation. .
                We also cannot forget that climate change causes a lot of deaths and injuries, and thus the country's population will decrease, and if the country's population decreases, the number of workers will decrease, and thus production will decrease, and thus the economy will decline. .
                If this situation extends to a large number of countries, there will be many wars, states will plunder each other, famine will increase, and deaths will increase.
                And the greatest danger that humanity may face is facing climate change with the Corona virus, because if production and economy decline and wars increase, we will not be able to provide vaccines, masks and sterilizers, and thus the virus will spread significantly and new epidemics will emerge, and thus humanity will face an unstoppable war. .

    In my opinion, many people react to covid -19 than the climate change because, covid-19 lead jobs to loss in many countries. In my country Ghana, during the covid-19 era, the government locked down many cities and towns. Because of that, many people that were doing work like capentry works, farming, fishing, trading and other personal works were not able to work. So all this spoiled many people monetary affairs. But compared to the climate change, there is no loss of jobs when the climate change, it will be sometimes difficult to go to work. Also, when the climate change, it doesn't affect people's monetary affairs because they are able to work. So is so one of reason why people react to the covid-19 urgently than the climate change.

    People are not reacting to climate change but reacting to covid-19 because it caused negative effects on national economy. In this part of our world Africa and Ghana for that matter, airports and some working places were shut down making it difficult to export or import goods thereby having negative impact on our balance of payment. Prices of food commodities shout up as a result of that .

    Why many people are tackling covid-19 than climate change is that in my point of view covid-19 is a deadly disease because it caused loss of jobs, when covid-19 came it caused closed down of various workshop and airports , so some were sacked from their workplaces and also those who have established small businesses were also closed down but climate change do not have those effects

    I start talking about the pros of this virus and is that it has stopped many factories and cars from working and thus the proportion of smoke which adversely affect the environment starts decreasing and stopped the Ozone Hole from getting larger .
    On the other hand , to reduce the spread of this horror epidemic , people starts to use plastic dishes and cups so that the disease is not transmitted to them by touching these tools , these tools are used once and then they are thrown and not used again, and it is known that the plastic has negative affect on the environment .

    on the Mediterranean coast. Our climate is temperate, rainy in winter and hot, dry in summer
    Today, Friday, I notice an increase in temperatures, which are six degrees above their annual average, and this is unusual for us and people do not pay any attention to it.
    As for climate, it is a problem derived and the most pronounced will appear in the future, and among these problems is the expansion of the ozone layer, the rise in temperatures in the skin areas and global warming, and for the Corona virus, it is direct, i.e. it infects humans and its symptoms appear quickly and spreads very quickly and needs a quick solution

    In my city there are many places interested in pottery and bamboo industries, such as: the village of arts and crafts near the Islamic University, the Red Crescent Museum, and the guesthouse.
    One of these industries is the pottery and bamboo industry
    The history of pottery making in Palestine goes back to the Canaanite era, and the Palestinian people still practice it, and pottery making is part of our ancient Palestinian heritage, and otherwise it is part of our ancient Palestinian heritage. And practiced by many prophets, such as: Noah, peace be upon him
    For me, I really like pottery because it represents our heritage and expresses ancient art. I also prefer ancient tools over modern tools, so I think making these tools was not harmful to the environment and using them is environmentally friendly. For example: Pottery tools are better for cooking than aluminum ones because they preserve the nutritional value of the food. Putting water in clay jugs is better for people with kidney disease and stones, and it also gives the flowers a wonderful sight if you put them in a clay jug.

    Now I'll move on to making bamboo:
    This craft spread in Gaza in the nineteenth century and flourished in the sixties and seventies of the twentieth century, and this craft dates back more than a hundred years, and Palestinian craftsmen have proven their art by converting these simple materials into ancient masterpieces that have become part of our heritage.
    In the past, this craft was limited to making chairs, and now it includes all kinds of home, office and hotel furniture.

    What I like about this craft is the adherence of its owner to it. I saw an old man saying: The bamboo industry runs in my blood .. My father was the first to enter and develop it in Gaza .. to embody the ancient Palestinian art in its most beautiful form.

    Now that you've heard this, did you feel encouraged to visit my city? I am waiting for your responses

    In my opinion, Covid-19 is a deadly disease and very scary than climate change. Climate change does not kill rapidly like the Covid-19.
    Due to Covid-19 , schools were closed down on this part of the world - Ghana . The side effects of lockdown were : some of the students became drug addicts; armed robbers and fraudsters. On the contrary, climate change is not that devastating to the extend of closing schools.
    Furthermore, people that were working in some of the factories and in other companies were asked to work from the house so that the government would tackle the Covid-19 pandemic

    Most of the people in community do not know much about climate change . There is no news and publication on climate change in my country Ghana. No wonder people are still ignorant of climate change in most part of the world.
    When the Covid-19 was at its peak in Ghana. The government introduced several measures to curd the pandemic. On the contrary, much has not been done concerning climate in Ghana here. Regarding global warming, the average person in Tafo - a town in Ghana, feels he/she could afford air condition , therefore, they are not bothered by climate change as long as they enjoying their air condition. Its disheartening to see people logging anyhow. Most green public places are been replaced with floor tiles and it is becoming the order of the day.

    I live in Nigeria and in a city called Jos. In Jos the weather is very cold, but because of climate change, we have experienced warmer climatic conditions recently, and not much awareness is made about the issue of climate change. The awareness about Covid-19 is much more than climate change. For instance, in my house we often talk about Covid-19 than climate change, I cant even remember the last time we talked about climate change, not even a little bit, can you remember the last time you talked with your family about climate change? The issue of not knowing about climate change is a very big problem, but there are things we can do as individuals and as a group to make awareness and stop climate change, like, advising others about climate change, and as a group we can get in touch with broadcasting networks and radio stations, we can also tell other people, and they can tell their friends. As individuals we can share this information with our family members and they can tell others too, posting this information on social media platforms is also a good idea. Has your climate also been changed because of Covid-19 too? Also do have any other ideas to help spread about climate change (both individually and as a group)?

    Hello, I am from Palestine. When thinking about why most people do not interact with climate change, although it has very bad consequences that threaten us in the future, just as they interacted with Covid 19, my personal view is the lack of awareness of the threat posed by the climate, at the beginning of the spread of Covid 19 It only spread to China, but we quickly learned the dangers of this virus and how to avoid exposureWe learned about its dangers from the media and social media, but the climate fluctuations did not receive enough attention from the media, just as the Covid 19 pandemic received. With this, then I turn to the climate at the present time, which is differentiated from the climate in the future. The climate of our country is now moderate and the majority of the population thinks that it will continue in this way, but every dayNew inventions appear and every day technology is developing more and more and every day the population increases, which increases air pollution and climate threats. Adequate awareness of future climate threats and how to reduce them must be spread, I move from here to the effects of climate and the effects of Covid 19, Covid 19 and its consequences Humanity is more immediate than the vagaries of climateIts consequences are very noticeable, as there are many injuries and many deaths that appear every day while the climate has very bad consequences, but they are not immediate and people do not notice them greatly, I think that the reason people care more about Covid 19 than they care about the climate is due to the lack of awareness, recklessness and the spread of the consequences of Covid 19 more quickly than the climate consequences, so how do we solve these problems?*We will use the best methods to raise awareness
    With the threat posed by climate:
    1 Spreading adequate awareness by the media. 2Carrying out artwork and publishing posters that
    Clarifies climate threats.
    3 Share personal and global opinions to solve this the problem.
    4 Not underestimating the threats it poses the climate.
    5 to recall the disasters that occurred in the past
    From the vagaries of the climate.
    6 Spreading awareness of the human, material and other losses that these threats may inflict. 7Use all methods that reduce fluctuations the climate.

    Pollution is the release of waste into the environment,mostly by human activities.Alot of people release wasteful substances into the environment without knowing it's dangers.For example,people throw waste into rivers unknown to them some living organisms e.g fishes which are prevented from breeding properly due to waste substances released in the water,this reduce the source of lively hood because fishes serve as food to man.Bush burning also affect the environment because it can lead to which spread certain droplets and can cause air-borne disease infection.Here are some steps I think will be suitable to control pollution:1.by environmental clean up and sanitation. 2.band of bush burning and environmental pollution......... please feel free to share your opinions

    Invest in green energy is a good solution to solve climate change . The Gaza Strip, in which more than two million people live, suffers from an acute electricity crisis, with hours of power cuts reaching about 20 hours a day

    The growing shortage of electricity has exacerbated women's suffering on a daily basis, resulting in harsh living conditions

    The network of environmental organizations was established as a solid base to raise the voice of women in the places most suffering from lack of energy, which transforms their lives, by providing a clean energy source, by creating a dialogue between the community level and decision-makers for change.

    I think that every person has an important role in facing climate change, which is why I suggest not marginalizing the role of women and empowering women through the use of alternative energy.

    I feel that climate change has bad psychological effects on society, so where is the role of international institutions in launching initiatives to confront this disaster?

    I think the most important way to build back greener in Gaza , Palestine is to stop using great a mouth of car fossil which makes the air pollution bigger and bigger
    . Some times we couldn't breathe because of this black air which affects old people and children and also we are a very poor country we can't make expensive solutions such as electric cars and huge projects for the environment. I think the sthis because where I live people use cheap fuel even it is harmful to the environment . In my opinion, we can build back green after we give sufficient understanding for this dangerous problem , all the people know about how getting back green is a solution for this air pollution. After that we start working hard to grow plants and give financial support to projects to help the environment live again.

    For example cars,bike, vehicles, train, truck, etc.It will affect the ozone layer it will damage it and make it very weak till a day when everything will colapse and the direct heat from the sun will affect million or trillion it of people.

    Hello,I'm from Palestine I want to tell you about why people took care of corona virus more than climate change .
    From my point of view people in my country have taken care of corona virus because the danger has touched them now and they felt it at the same time they did not care about climate pollution because they did not feel much in danger.

    They do not know that the ozone layer may get bigger and bigger and ultraviolet rays interfere with them which could lead to the devastation of humanity and they do not know the climate pollution more dangerous corona virus and people say that pollution you make is simple and they do not know that simple pollution may become large in the future over they years.

    Ways to build back greener.
    - Avoid dumping industrial waste and chemicals anyhowly.Have particular places for dumping waste.
    -Use clean energy sources such as solar power which dont pollute the environment.
    -Sensitize the communities about the impotance of trees.
    -Support green businesses such as selling of tree seedlings.

    For me, the methods that help rebuild greener are the first and third way 1 Investing in green energy 2 Helping nature We must stop using things that are harmful for the environment including fossil fuels such as crude oil and natural gas, and replace them with renewable energy sources such as solar energy or wind energy. Helping nature is easy for individuals . So, they can help plant more trees , stop smoking to reduce air pollution and they can also by simple actions like reduce the use of plastic products help preserve the nature.

    I believe that helping our environment is very important. We only have one world and we should take care if to the best of our abilities. Some ways to build back greener are: Save electricity, turn something off when you are not using it. Grow some plants or maybe even plant a tree! Stop using so many cars/buses. Why don't you cycle, walk or scooter to where you want to go. Or maybe even create a fun way to travel! I hope you all approve of my ways to "build back greener".

Our ozone layer is being destroyed because of the fumes of these cars. The destruction of the ozone layer can cause serious damage to the community and can also cause fires more easily. In other parts of Nigeria, buildings catch fire easily. I think if the government brings electric cars to my country there will be less climate change and the world will be a better place to live.

There will be less Global warming. We should also have cars that work on solar. The cars we have now can kill humans, animals, trees and other living things. Investing in green energy will really help our climate so a lot of people would not get sick. Fumes from cars don’t only affect health they kill people. That will go a long way to help our climate.

    As for now, many people live and work in big cities, and this may affect their opinion on building back greener. Because, these people think that, whiles they are trying to build back greener,(planting trees and watering them during the dry season to prevent the trees from dying and drying. Also, making fence around young planted trees to prevent them from overgrazing by animals. Again, trying to stop polluting the environment ) others will also be working and making more money. So they will be thinking that, it is a waste of time to build back greener because, as the time they are using to build back greener, they can use that time to work and make more money.
    But I think, this bad behavior, greedy with money must be cleared off from us, because we ourselves may benefit from it if we build back greener. Thank You.

    Where I live there’s lot of pollution, so this makes me think that there’s need to Build Back Greener. If where someone else lives there’s no pollution, they might think there’s no need to Build Back Greener. For example, in Lagos there’s lots of flood, cars can’t move, one can’t go to work. I think there’s need to Build Back Greener. Another person living in a palce where there’s no flood, they would not think of Building Back Greener. So, this makes me think that where someone lives can affect their opinions about Building Back Greener. THANKS BNC.

    Climate Change: Different Perspectives On A Vital Issue:
    I personally believe that people are more influenced by their family members and friends because those are the people whom they trust with secrets and can even trust them with their lives .So I really think that everyone would be influenced by their loved ones more than strangers even when it involves something as big as the climate crisis that we're dealing with today.
    Besides, I think that the place, where people live, can majorly affect the way they think and especially the way they deal with this global problem. For instance, some people believe that it doesn't even exist as, where they live, nothing has changed and some people don't believe stuff until they see it in front of them. That's why, we should spread awareness as much as we can.
    On the other hand, some people are going through a lot : some of them lost their homes, some of them have been struggling because of the damage caused by floods and earthquakes and many other disasters and most of those are mainly happening because of the big change in the climate that we are dealing with today.
    Personally, I think that this is a big reason why our planet is divided between people who actually do what they can to help and people who don't even care. And the worst thing about that is that we have to stick together and help each other because only if all of us are united, that we can get through this vital issue.

    Opinions about “building back greener”
    People's opinion depends on where they live, whom they rely on and who influence them.
    For example, someone who lives in the North Pole would know the gravity of the situation because everyday animals die in front of him and his food source disappears with them. Moreover, he is not used to the increase in temperature and the heat which makes melt the snow that turns into water, and little by little, the level will increase and soon there will be no more land.
    In return, someone who lives in Tunisia for example would not notice any changes. He will just feel a bit hotter.
    Now, talking about who influences them most, I think that old people would believe the news on television because for them in social media there are only fake news. For adults, family is the most reliable. Finally, concerning teenagers in the most critical period of their life, I think that they would believe their friends because they are attached to them and social media since they spend the majority of their time in front of their screens. But sometimes you can't blame people for not acting to build back greener because part of their country is not even aware of problems and disasters that are destroying our world so that's why I suggest making more announcements and posts to educate people to help us minimize the consequences of our acts.

    I really agree with what you are saying and I totally agree that the Government are not making a big change as all of their focus is on Covid-19. I would really like for at least some of the Government's attention towards climate change. If we don't do something now, then our world will only get worse for us and the environment.

    I think the world needs to take urgent climate action. If we don't do something in the next few years to stop global warming, it might be a little fruitless then. We need to reduce carbon emissions and pollution of all types. Global warming is leading to many natural disasters, loss of life, health issues etc. If everyone comes together, we can definitely make a change!

    Most countries in the Africa national budgets are supported with loans from the World Bank and other international bodies because their internally generated fund is nothing to write home about.
    Now to the point, well to do countries should champion the course of building back greener by assisting poorer countries with the right skills and other resources. By so doing, no country will be left behind in building back greener. When those poorer countries have the support of richer countries, they have no excuse of building back greener.

    It is the responsibility of every country over the world to build back greener . However, the big question is do all countries have the same resources to address climate change ? the answer might be big no. We don't have equal economic power. Therefore the richer countries should provide support to the poorer countries in building back greener since government spending in addressing effectively has declined drastically
    Today, climate change is having devastating effect in Madagascar . There is hunger in that country due to climate change .
    Government of Ghana approach of tackling climate change by hiring the youth to plant more trees in the forest is under threat, simple because the youth are not being paid frequently. So lack of funds is affecting the smooth implementation of the initiative
    If richer countries can finance some of these programs across the continent will go a long way to improve vegetation and deal with climate change

    It is the responsibility country to build back greener . But the question is ,do all countries have the same resources to help in addressing climate change? The answer is a big NO. We don't have equal economy power. So the advanced countries should provide support to poorer countries in building back greener since government spending to respectively addressing climate change as declined drastically in power .
    Today, climate change is having devastating effect in Madagascar. There is hunger in that country due to climate change.
    After covid-19 pandemic, government of Ghana adopted approach of tackling climate change by hiring the youth to plant more trees in the forest is under threat , simply because the youth are not receiving their salaries .So inadequate funds is affecting the smooth implementation of their nice program .
    If advance countries can finance some of this programs across the countries .It will go a long way to improve and deal with climate change .

    The develop countries are abound with all the best scientist and tools that can help the world by finding innovative and successful ways to address climate change.
    Unfortunately, most of them are focusing on how best they can make profit. Through the world , entrepreneurs have the agenda of experimenting with new business models , new ways to finance start up and growth.
    If a percent of such attention is practically among the advance countries could be directed towards climate change. We will achieve excellent result.

    Industrialized countries should be encourage to develop a new approach of controlling air and water pollution since it is one of the most important factors for damaging the environment. I believe when it is managed well it will reduce the pollution.
    In the same way, Ghanaians should be trained on proper way of managing their natural resources. The fight against community mining ,deforestation ,overgrazing and bushfire should be taken seriously.

    countries should be deeply involved in building back greener since global warming is becoming global issue.
    They devote part of their national savings to set up a foundation which is geared towards training program for the poorer countries. They understand that climate changes is more important than spending too much on the army.
    Give the participants what they need to fight climate change. Their progress should be measured from time to time to determine whether they are achieving the desired results.
    To achieve our mission, UNO should add another organ to their already existing organ to in charge of climate change

    Three reasons why people will not consider the building of back greener as a serious issue is as follows:
    1)Ignorance:Some people also will try to ignore the effect of climate change and go on with their business that pollutes the environment in other to get money.
    2)Education:Because of the low level of education of some people,they may not know effect or consequences of climate change.
    3)Inadequate funds:Some countries may deny the building of back greener because of inadequate funds or money.Poor countries will think of developing their countries with the little moneyou they have than building back greener.

    hello, I'm amazing_pigeon from Uganda.
    One man once said that one picture says a thousand words. and that goes back to the question as to why art is a good way to explain something to a group of people who don’t speak the
    same language.
    Art has a special way of making something fathomable faster.

    Art is a good way of communicating to people who don’t speak the same language because art is known as an expression to verify a specific topic to the interest of an individual. Art is not only good for communication with people from different tribes but also good for people with speaking and hearing disabilities. Like in the Bible, some men were working to build a tower but they couldn’t understand themselves because they were speaking different languages, which led to a complete disaster of their work.

    To share my idea, it is very important to talk about global issues especially climate change which is having devastating effect. The way covid-19 pandemic received attention, equally that attention and publicity should be giving to global issues such as global warming. By so doing, people who do not know the various causes, the problems and ways of preventing it, will have the opportunity to receive the first hand information. In fact, we have to be each others keeper by sharing their vital information. TOGETHER WE CAN BUILD BACK GREENER, THANK YOU.

    In my point of view , these are the reasons why it is important to speak to another people around the world about global issues. Some people do not know the side effects of harming the environment, so by discussing the global issues with them, they will get to know the side effect of harming the environment. Furthermore, some people do not understand the cause of global warming and other pressing issues so we have to tell them about the causes of global issues by creating the awareness. It will help the to also join in the fight against the global issues such as global warming.

    My mum always says that the future is pregnant and that one wouldn't know what could happen the next minute. With this in mind, it is important to discuss global issue with people from other parts of the world because it broadens our horizons and helps us learn more about issues that may not necessarily be affecting the country we live in, but would give us ideas or techniques in tackling these issues better especially when it befalls us.

    Some people do not know the dangers involved in not paying attention to international issues. So by talking to them about global issues, they would understand the side effects of harming the environment. By so doing, they reduce the quantity of fumes release into the atmosphere that causes pollution.
    In fact, most people seem to careless about global issues. Simply because, they thought it is far away from them. I suggest, with global issues, people should be encouraged to talk about it at the local, national as well as the international level in order to get everybody involved. In the case of Israel and Palestinian attack is getting the superpower talking. It is a good approach.
    However, if similar attention is given to climate change as global issue like it will help to improve climate change.

Such programs should be run frequently on other pressing global issues to help to create the awareness and interest in global issues among students.

      According to my vies we should talk to people about global issues because some people do not know the harm and side effects of climate change . if we talk to them they reduce the rate of fumes that cause pollution such as using electric cars instead of gasoline ones. The attention which was put on COVID 19 is the same attention which should be put on climate changes. In this way people will be knowledgeable and global issues will decrease. In fact some people seem to be careless about climate changes because they think that it is far from them,to prevent this we should be encouraged to talk about it at local and international levels ,therefore people Will decrease the rate and quantity of fumes produced.

    Why is it important to speak to other people from around the world about global issues?

    GLOBAL ISSUES THAT REQUIRE POLICY SOLUTIONS
    Certain global issues cannot be solved by on-the-ground, grassroots-style projects. These include the upholding of international law and peace, assisting with the decolonisation of nations and ensuring the effective running of democracies. These are the activities that organisations like the UN oversee as a regulatory institution. However, there are a number of policy-level issues that can be worked on.

    I have been inspired by Chris Hopkins and Najma Mohamed to be a climatologist. I will collect and examine data from sources such as soil, water, air, and even plant life to find patterns in weather and learn how those patterns affect the Earth and its inhabitants. I will then use this data to improve biodiversity on earth.
