Session 3: what's the best option?

Welcome to the Global Conversation sessions!

If you have missed a session at school or would like to recap what you have learnt, then work through the activities below.

Keyword

  • To influence

    When someone affects how someone else thinks or behaves.

    verb to influence + someone / something “The news might influence people to do something about climate change.”

STEP 1

  • Can you see the effects of climate change where you live? How? For example, you might have experienced extreme weather.
  • If you lived in a country with a different climate, how would your answer be different?
  • How could where someone lives affect their opinion about “building back greener”?

STEP 2

Read these opinions about "building back greener".

session 3 views.png
  • For each opinion, decide who might say the statement. For example, a world leader, a climate activist or a business owner.
  • Whose perspectives haven’t we considered?
  • Why do people have different opinions about the same thing?

STEP 3

Now, think about these opinions and complete this activity.

opinions session 3.png
  • Which person do you think is least likely to support “building back greener”? What would you say to this person to help change their mind?
  • Who are people most influenced by: experts, friends and family or someone else?
  • Who is the most reliable?

STEP 4

Read the statements below, one at a time. Do you agree or disagree with each statement? Can you say why?

  • One person's actions can not make a difference to the climate
  • World leaders have more power than the public to “build back greener”
  • We should “build back greener” even if some people disagree

Over to you

    Step 1 :
    In my country Palestine, the impact of climate change can be clearly seen, especially on the agricultural sector, as the soil has become degraded and unfit for agriculture and increasing droughts, all of this has led to the deterioration of agriculture, which affects the Palestinian economy, because agriculture constitutes the Palestinians' complete dependence on their source of income, especially due to high unemployment rates and lack of job opportunities for young people, so they resort to agriculture as a source of income. Animal production was also affected greatly, for example, the Poultry Farms Syndicate in Palestine announced the heavy losses that occurred in poultry farms, which were caused by climate change and high temperatures.

      Thank you for giving such a detailed and thoughtful account. If you lived in a country with a different climate, how would your answer be different? For example, do you think that the same climate change issues would be visible?

        If I live in a different country, without a doubt, my opinion and the opinion of people in my country will differ, because people's opinions depend on the place surrounding them, and climate change differs from one country to another, also the economies of countries are different so of course if I live in another country whose economy is also different, the people's opinion will be different about climate change.

            In Nigeria were I live,in the climate change we were only experiencing the dry season which was very harsh and causes drought while the rainy season came with flood which destroyed farmlands, homes, animals and plants. So I think that we should plant trees like palm trees that would help the flood.

      We are what we think.
      All that we are arises with our thoughts.
      With our thoughts we make the world.
      - The Buddha, quoted in the Dhammapada

      We can endlessly get lost in the complexity of sustainable development, but the key to transformation is simplicity itself. Don't take my word for it; just listen to leading politicians and business leaders.

      They recognise that at the core, all we really need to do to unlock the creativity and innovation that can turn us away from social and environmental disaster is to change our thoughts.

      We can thank Einstein for popularising a key spiritual principle. He was quoted in quick succession by the prime minster of Denmark Helle Thorning-Schmidt and Paul Polman, the CEO of Unilever, at the recent two-day global green growth forum (3GF) in Copenhagen.

    How could where someone lives affect their opinion about “building back greener”?
    Climate change varies from one region to another, depending on human factors such as the extent to which this region uses fossil fuels, and natural factors also differ from one region to another, so there are regions affected by climate change less than other regions, so people's opinions differ about building back greener, human opinions depend on what he sees directly and what he sees around him, as he doesn't touch on the large scale.

Study,human caused climate change is causing winter snowpacks to melt increasingly earlier in the spring. Snowpacks in the Cascades, Sierra Nevada's,and European Alps are melting nearly a month earlier than usual to I agree with you that every country do not have equal change in climate

        Hello Everyone, I personally think that it is very normal that people have different opinions about climate chance in different cities or country. Some places would have really serious climate change problems and some places would have less serious climate change. So, I think it is normal for different opinions.

        Fossil fuels pollute the air due to burning coal, this also leads to the depletion of the ozone layer, also causes global warming, which poses a great threat to ecosystems, and global warming causes floods, extreme weather, high temperatures and droughts, also causes a rise sea level, resulting in floods and tsunamis pose a threat to nearby residents.

        Fossil fuels, we can say that it is a modern energy that has imposed itself strongly in recent years
        Why??
        Because it has a high energy density, easy transportation and storage, and different types can be extracted from it that are used in multiple machines such as engines, airplanes and generators.
        How??
        It became involved in all areas of our life, including transportation, travel, education, health and others, and it left a clear imprint in the environment, but unfortunately a bad footprint
        Why??
        Because this fingerprint tries to destroy the earth little by little, and disasters occur with it and disturb its balance, it is like a slow death
        What is the evidence on that ??
        1- The increase in harmful emissions in the atmosphere caused global warming, which raised the temperature of the earth and increased desertification and drought and extreme weather, which increased tropical areas, thus will allow disease-carrying insects to expand their ranges, and this leads in the future to epidemics such as the Corona epidemic, since the mosquito is a carrier of dangerous diseases
        2. Air pollution has depleted ozone levels, thus increasing the rates of skin cancer
        3. The release of car engines and power stations harmful compounds such as sulfur dioxide, which binds with rainwater, producing acid rain that destroys buildings, plants and fish.
        4. Sea level rise, which leads to melting ice at the poles and the spread of diseases and viruses found there and buried with the bodies of animals after they disappeared from the face of the earth thousands of years ago.

      I agree. In Wales (where I live) climate change is mainly affected in the weather. Honestly I don't know if it is climate change or just the UK being the UK. But we did have snow in spring and recently it goes every other day from being cold to warm to raining to snowing.

    In Ghana the effect I can see is the change in weather pattern and sea- level rise which will affect the salinity of coastal water.
    Climate change in Ghana has an impact on food production stability.

    In my Country Uganda, the effects of Climate change are seen in the following ways:
    - seasons for planting crops have changed.We used to receive first rain seasons in February, but nowadays, rain seasons come in April, two months later and the second season has become unreliable.
    -High temperatures keep on persisting especially at night.
    -Heavy rains with storms which end up destroying crops and other valuable property.

      Such changes, in deed, not only affect human but also animals and birds. This explains why sometimes we see animals immigrations faster than ever. Even the number of some species is getting down because the surrounding circumstances affects reproduction like high temperature and drought.

        Okay!
        Yes it is the truth because, in the polar regions the weather is cold as usual but due to climate change the atmosphere have become warm.
        This makes the Acrtic ice reflect sunlight while water absorbs it. Also as I have said earlier the Arctic ice melts, the oceans around it asborb more sunlight and heat up, making the Arctic ice to melt.
        Thank you!

    Yes, since I live near the Mediterranean and the climate there is poor, where in summer the weather is warm, and in winter it is cold, where the air is cold but moderate, Palestine has a moderate climate
    If you live in a different country, ... will your answer be different ??
    Yes, because every country has different climates according to its distance and proximity to the sea.
    According to its height and low from the sea level.
    How does the place in which a person live affect their opinion on the issue of making the world greener ??.

    Hello
    *Can you see the effects to climate change where you live ? How ?
    I can see the effects of climate change where I live in Palestine in Gaza , for example we suffer in the winter from the problem of severe year it gets colder and also in the summer we suffer from the problem of extreme heat as it is also every year it gets hotter than the previous year , in my opinion this is very bad .
    *If you lived in a country with a different climate , how would your answer be different ?
    If I live in a different country , the effects of climate change will differ , because each country has a different climate and different terrain , depending on where the country is located , on which land line , and how its climate is over the course of the four seasons .
    *How could where someone lives a different their opinion about " building back greener "?
    In my opinion , where human life affects his opinion on the issue of making the world greener according to the climate , the location of the place in which he lives , its topography in relation to the earth , and how people in this place care about the climate and its changes and the preservation of the environment .

    I will arrange opinions in which year I think it should be
    2000: There are a lot of changes recently. Let's just go back to how it was before.
    2021: Ignorance of the world is greener is expensive, but getting the world back on track again after the Corona starvation will be more expensive.
    2030: If we don't make the world greener now, when will it?
    2060: Whatever is better for the environment and the climate, is better for people as well.
    Absolutely: global warming does not affect my life, so there is no need to re-make the world greener than before.
    I just need a job to educate my family, I don't care if it's related to greening first.
    I think these three opinions are less supportive of climate change
    1- I just need a job to feed my family, I don't care if it's related to the green issue or not.
    2- Unifies a lot of recent changes, let's just go back to what things were before.
    3- Global warming does not affect my life, so there is no need to, to make the world greener than before.
    I think people are affected the most by experts.

    Step 1 : I guess we lived times of extreme weather in Tunisia. Last summer there were 2 big fires because of very hot summer, many trees were burnt and a big factory was damaged in "Nfidha ". Some farms were also burnt and animals perished. That was heart-breaking and I personally felt scared because it wasn't really far from where I live. Before this in winter we had the opposite when there was a heavy rain for many days and we stopped going to school. Many poor families found themselves homeless. That was the first time I saw a weather like This. My dad told me that he hasn't seen a year like this with strange weather. Another strange thing related to weather was in the north of my country two years ago when a big quantity of snow fell in "Ain Drahem " and my winter holiday was cancelled because the roads that lead to the resort were blocked. People there suffered a lot and many lost their houses and animals. This was rare said my dad but now it's more frequent. I know that this the same in many places. I saw this in the news last summer when many countries in Central Africa faced floods. The same thing in Europe this year there was a snow storm in early spring which is strange so I don't think that there is a safe place now everywhere. This is global thing and it isn't related simply to the weather but something bigger which is climate change and it SO REAL.

    In my country, especially Gaza City, we do not clearly notice climate change because overall there is no emission of polluting gases as in industrial cities, and the nature of the Palestinian economy depends greatly on agriculture, meaning it is environmentally friendly. rains and climate are moderate, and this almost prevails in of the Arab world and the Middle East
    It is true that we noticed some changes, such as the extinction of some animals such as wild deer, but they were not significant changes as in developed countries
    We are among the countries that need less measures to rebuild greener
    But if I live in Japan, for example, or the United States of America, my opinion will completely change and I will support building back greener, because its effects will be clear and eloquent, then fires and hurricanes will occur, vegetation will decrease due to urban sprawl and factories will increase, therefore harmful gases in the atmosphere will increase and the rate of global warming will increase. And there will become acid rain resulting from the interaction of harmful gases with rain, which leads to the death of fish and trees, the destruction of homes and statues, in addition to an increase in harmful wastes resulting from industries, which will increase pollution
    This clearly shows how where a person lives around their opinion affects building back greener.

    1- I believe that the actions of one person will not do any good in climate change, because climate change is a big and serious problem, which cannot be solved by the actions of one person. All people should support this cause.
    2- I do not agree with this statement: that world leaders have power greater than the people, for world leaders are nothing without people, and vice versa, for they complement each other.
    3- Yes, I believe that the world should be made greener. Even if some people do not agree, we have to persuade them to speak to the dangers of climate change and pollution.

    Step 2
    Decide who might say rai ??
    opinion (A)
    Experts and scientists, because they know the danger threatening the earth and the means that must be followed to reduce it, which are costly scientific methods
    opinion(B)
    I think whoever said it was someone who lives in a region with little impact on climate change like a citizen of the Arab world
    opinion(C)
    Scientists and experts who have felt the magnitude of the threat threatening Earth due to climate change
    opinion(E)
    An environmental scientist or political leader because he will encourage people to go to green jobs and explain to them that if the environment improves and people will improve their lives for the better and will become healthier and safer, but if they stay as they are, they will harm the environment and harm themselves
    Opinion (F)
    A citizen of a developing country or a citizen of environmental ignorance
    Citizen in developing countries will be concerned with providing food for him and his children, and he will not have time and priority to think about the issue of climate change because poverty has become his concern and the only problem that threatens his life. Which profession, whether harmful or beneficial to the environment, will take it to overcome poverty and this is almost the reality we have in Palestine, especially a city Gaza, or a citizen with an environmental problem, does not know the size of the problem that threatens the land, so he does not care to building back greener.

    Why do people have different opinions about the same thing ??
    Several factors make different people's opinions about rebuilding greener
    1. The level of environmental awareness of the population
    The people with environmental awareness will support rebuilding greener in all ways. As for those with environmental ignorance, they will not care for that because they do not know the size of the danger threatening the earth.
    2) Place or country
    For example, here in Palestine we do not care to rebuild much greener, because we do not see severe impacts of climate change, but in China due to the enormous size of pollution, they will support methods of rebuilding greener
    3. The level of the country's economic development
    For example, in developing countries, due to widespread poverty and unemployment, the population will tend to work in any profession to provide food, housing and clothing, and they will not care about climate change and rebuild greener because it will not be among its priorities, but the population in developed countries will have food, clothing, housing, education and treatment in full. It will automatically turn to another problem to start solving, which is climate change
    That is, if he has completed his important priorities, he will move to his less important priorities according to his point of view.
    4 because of a different way of thinking
    For example, those who live in the Arab world will think differently, and from those who live in Britain. I will mention an example of this. Here in Gaza we have the duties of a father and a mother raising children, educating them, and building homes for , but there is no such thing in other countries, for example in some countries at a certain age The son separates from the family and lives alone and relies on himself in all aspects of his life, but this thing is not from our Arab culture and our Arab thinking

      You mention that people in Palestine do not necessarily pay as much attention to climate change as other countries. Do you think that more needs to be done in Palestine to ensure that more people are paying extra attention to the global situation?

        Exactly, workshops and books should be provided for adults.
        Films and booklets are good ways to increase teenagers awareness. While cartoons and simple stories are suitable for kids.
        And we can go further, to ask teenagers to film and edit some short videos about environment to kids. And ask adults to involve teenagers in some activities that help the environment such as planting, recycling workshops...etc.

        Right
        I think that more attention should be given to the global situation from the people in Palestine
        Because this problem is global and affects all countries, it is true that it is not of the same degree of influence, but care and caution must be taken so that we do not reach what the countries most affected by climate change have reached

    Step 4
    1- I agree with you, for example, if I use green methods in my life, will I make a clear change in the climate?
    Certainly not
    Because the rest of the population does the opposite of what I do and the work of the majority prevails over the minority. For example, if there are 100 people who do not protect the environment and I was one of them, then I separated from them and started adopting green methods in my life, will I affect the climate as if 100 people adhere to green methods?
    of course no
    This is like a good player in a bad team, this player alone will not be able to succeed in the whole team
    2. I opinion agreed
    Because they have the decisions and the means to bring about a positive change in the climate, but I want to note that the acceptance by the people of the state of what the president wants has a big role.
    For example, if a president permanently forbids the use of fossil fuels in a country and urges people to use renewable energy means. If the country is poor, this thing will not happen. Rather, the population will object because they are unable to do so and may lead to chaos in the country, but if the president does so and gives Housing those means, the people will never object and will be happy
    3. I agree with you
    Even if people's opinions differ about a specific problem and are divided into supporters and opponents, in the end, what is right must be done to solve that problem, and this is what happens with the issue of climate change.
    Although many are not interested in building back greener, it must be done to protect the land from the danger threatening it

        Right!!
        I use green techniques for the simplest things in my life in the things that I can help the environment with
        I am one of the strongest supporters of rebuilding greener
        For example, I use a calculator that works on solar energy instead of one that works on dry batteries
        I have adopted the idea of ​​recycling a lot in my life, and even my family encourages me to do so, for example the pens that I use and finish with them, I do not throw them in the garbage
        Use it as a decoration
        Likewise, the empty plastic boxes, I do not let my mother throw it in the garbage, but take it and decorate it with chipped wax colors and put it on my desk and put my pens and my items in it.
        Also, empty water bottles take them and stick them firmly next to each other and make a beautiful table out of them
        And he used the leftovers to make a fertilizer that benefits trees and flowers in our garden
        I have a beautiful habit that I do not like to give up, which is when I see any place devoid of nature and trees, such as rooftops and entrances to buildings, I plant some trees and flowers in them, even if they are flowers and small trees, but in the future they will grow bigger
        When I go to the market, I don't use plastic bags, I use canvas bags
        Use masks that are used more than once after washing them instead of using a lot of one-time masks and increase pollution.

    1-The issue of climate change in Palestine has become of great importance, and awareness has increased in light of the rapid changes in the Palestinian climate, drought and scarcity of water resources in Palestine.

    By examining the past effects of climate change, we find that Palestine will be vulnerable to an increase in the frequency and severity of many natural hazards. The most important of these risks is drought and scarcity of water sources, as the lack of rain and its tendency to increase if it occurs will lead to an increase in the water deficit, which reduces the chances of benefiting from the rains when they occur to feed the underground reservoir. Also, high temperatures and increased rates of evaporation and transpiration will lead to an increase in the need for irrigation of plants and the demand for water, which means an increase in pressure on this already scarce source. In the Gaza Strip, the matter will be worse, as the water is scarce than in the rest of the regions However, the high demand for water and the doubling of the water deficit will accelerate the entry of sea water into the aquifer and predict the deterioration of water quality in Gaza much faster than expected. It must also be noted that the high number of heavy rain spells increases the chances of flooding, especially in crowded cities with drainage networks.
    2_ Yes, the answer will be different (because climate problems differ from one country to another). There is a great diversity in the climate on the surface of the earth, between a hot and temperate climate and a cold climate, and in areas that have a temperate climate. As for desert areas, we notice that there is a significant decrease in the Population density due to the lack of rain
    3_The issue of making the world greener than a person affects society, it affects through climate change, weather conditions, and resources in a place or country, and through rainfall, droughts, high temperatures and calories. Each region also differs from the other. Opinions always.

    There is no doubt that the climate change that our planet is going through is a tangible and dangerous matter. In Palestine, we are starting to see a rise in temperature, an increase in the rate of drought, and a decrease in the rate of rainwater (with the cold weather in the winter).
    The high rate of air pollution with toxic gases in the Gaza Strip and the decrease in the Dead Sea water. Of course, this varies from one country to another. There are countries suffering from severe cold weather and an increase in air pollution, and this is due to the sources of pollution in each country.
    The place has an essential role to rehabilitate it again, so there must be resources to help the place green. Indeed, there are places whose residents and governments care about greening the environment. We see them plant trees in the streets in homes and punish and impose laws on those who cut down trees.

If I live in another country then my answer will definitely be different because the effects of climate change differ from one country to another as a result of the fact that the effects of climate are not evenly distributed between parts the earth. - The place in which a person lives affects his opinion on the issue of making the world greener through the extent to which climate changes affect his country. But there is something that baffles me which is why the effects of climate are not evenly distributed among the parts of the earth? Is it due to natural factors or is it due to human factors or is it because of the economic difference between countries? It really is baffling Very what do you think?

    The place where someone lives can affect their opinion about building back greener because, people living in desert areas may not be able to plant trees and nature them to grow, for these reason people may not want to plant trees at all. Also different trees grow in different areas, so people living in the tropical areas would make decision to plant trees that grow well in such areas.

    In my country Palestine, we are observing climate change. In the summer we wear light clothes because we feel hot, and in the winter we wear heavy clothes because we feel cold ..

    My reaction will be different if I come from Siberia, for example; Where the weather is cold throughout the year.

    In fact, I think that the people who live in the cold regions will be the least sympathetic to the climate problem, unlike the people who live in the hot regions.

    According to my personal opinion, I think:
    A: Dealer
    B: A student
    c: Activist for the environment
    d: a world leader
    e: Activist for the environment
    f: Student
    On the timeline I put the same in 2021, as I am keeping up with the climate problem.
    I think that the most common opinions in my country are those that think that the problem does not concern it (b, f), and I put them at the year 2000 on the timeline ..

    Anyone who tells me they are less supportive of the environment, I will tell them that the smallest business can make a difference ..

    I see that the most influential person is the president; Because many people trust and support him.

    The most reliable is the environmental activist, as he is the one who teaches it the most.

    Step 4:

    I do not agree with him, if everyone continues to ignore the matter, the land will be a landfill.

    I agree with you, because they are people people trust, and because they are very influential.

    I agree with you, because it's a matter of everyone's life, that they will understand it someday.

    My answer night be different because the climate of an area concerns the average weather conditions. Different part of the Earth have different climate because of the different amount of heat received from the sun.
    In my country Ghana, climate change is projected to affect it's vital water resources, energy supplies, crop production and food security. More intense rainfall is expected to increase erosion, while less total rainfall may decrease the water flow. Ghana is already experiencing increased extreme weather conditions with higher incidences and more prolonged periods of flooding and droughts. High temperature will further increase and rainfall patterns will be less predicable. The country's vulnerability is largely due to dependence on the production of crops that are sensitive to climate change, including cassav

        Agriculture diversification refers to either a change in crop pattern or the farmers opting for other non-farming options like poultry farming, animal husbandry. This practice allows farmers to expand the production , which helps generate a higher level of income . It helps in reducing risk factors as it ensures that the farmers do not lose all of their resources if the weather does not favour the crop production.

    People don't care about the climate change effects as long as they aren't affected directly. This is not a wise and deep thought. I can't see the option of a victim of climate change outcomes like extreme weather effects. Floods and droughts in the same country like in ours where we have more disertification in the south part of Tunisia and sudden floods in the North which lefts many victims and loss. Both are affecting our already weak economy and health care conditions. In Tunisia we have lack of farm products because of the extreme weather. Vegetables that were cheap are rare and very expensive. We have a herd of sheep and my dad finds problems to feed them because their food is becoming scarce and costly. My dad feels the impact of climate change and can't say that everything is ok so no need to be worried of climate change. My dad feels it because it affected our family budget. We feel happy when it rains but even rain turns into a problem as we can't move to our farm easily with high levels of water. I hope everyone will be aware and concerned with changing climate and urge going back to greener because with it everything will be healthy and everything will thrive again. We need to be less selfish first

    My answer may be different because other countries have different climate change patterns.I live in Ghana and I can see the many ways that climate change has affected us and include the following;
    1. WEATHER FORECAST PREDICTIONS OCCURING AT UNEXPECTED PERIODS: Due to climate change, forecasters get the wrong predictions and people sometimes believe what the forecasters talk about. For example, when they predict that it will rain on a day, that may not happen, instead it will be very sunny and hot and people tend to believe them.
    2. CHANGES IN SEASONAL PATTERNS: Climate change has caused changes in seasonal patterns recently. During the harmattan season, it rained a lot and it is quite unusual and during the rainy season, the sun has been scorching a lot and even during the night, the weather is very hot.
    3. EXPERIENCE IN GLOBAL WARMING: Many people in Ghana here pollute the air with their activities like release of industrial gases into the atmosphere. This is causing climate change and can cause global warming.
    4. CLIMATE CHANGE AFFECTS AGRICULTURAL ACTIVITIES BY REDUCING CROP YIELDS: Due to climate change, crops are not able to grow well. When there is excess sunshine, it dries up all the water present in the plant which causes it to die. Also, when there is too much rainfall, the crops get more than what they need and causes them to die.

Economic recovery packages should be designed to" build back greener".This means doing more than getting economics and livelihoods quickly back by on their feet.

    In Tafo, a community in Ghana, it is surrounded by green vegetation. We have average temperature in here making the place comfortable.
    Besides, there are lot of villages around so when it comes to building back greener, they have nothing to do with it. It is all because, there are:
    1. Less cars on the roads.
    2. Less or even no factories around.
    3. Less or no galamseys (small scale
    miners) to cut down trees and to destroy our greeny environment.
    The only problem is that, they are cutting down trees for firewoods. But gradually, that problem is being attended to.
    Therefore, the issue of building back greener, probably might not be a priority here.

      The farmers also need to build back greener. Since they also use trees for local medicines as well as charcoal and firewood as you said.

      Question: what do these people use for cooking? (source of heat)
      If they are using charcoal and firewood the problem is still there since they are cutting down trees and these sources produce smoke which pollutes the air.

    Step 1
    In my country Palestine. We suffer from global warming and increasing of temperatures which in one hand led to low the levels of the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. In the other hand, it led to some fires in the city of Haifa. and not to forget the problem of water pollution, which led to the spread of diseases. Especially in the absence of advanced medical equipment. I think if we went to another country, the problems there would be different, and I think that is because of the difference in its location, the rate of use of fossil fuels, and the emissions of toxic gases. How could someone's lives affect their opinion about "back building greener"?
    Regarding this point, I think that the main reason for this is the change of factors. For example, in Japan, they try to use renewable energy. but in Egypt for example, they do not do so, and it is equally effective in Japan. I believe that the reason is the influence of governments and specialized agencies in facing climate change and people's initiative and knowledge of its risks.

    One person cannot make any difference to the climate because of many examples. If one factory decides to pollute the whole environment without the support of other factory, that factory would not make any difference. But if many factories decides to pollute the environment they would all release harmful gases such as(carbon dioxide,methane, flurochlorocarbons) and many more into the atmosphere which would make a difference.

    The issue of climate change in Palestine has become of great importance as a result of the rapid changes in the Palestinian climate, as global warming is the cause of many of the negative effects that have affected large sectors of Palestinian life, such as water, agriculture, health, food security and others. The State of Palestine is considered to have a limited impact on the issue of climate change, but it is located within the eastern Mediterranean region most affected by climate change, according to the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for the year 2014. The percentage of climate pollution in Palestine according to the Quality and Environment Authority is less than 1% compared to other countries, and the climate emissions per capita in Palestine are very low, as it was estimated at 0.8 tons of carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming, compared to 7.5 tons. Per capita globally. The new climate phenomena taking place in the Palestinian territories have a clear impact that is directly linked to a global problem that changes the course of the globe and threatens its security in a number of vital sectors. Among the effects of climate change was the wave of fires that struck Haifa, Jerusalem and other cities, according to the poll conducted by the (prospects for environment and development) magazine that 89% of those surveyed admit that the cause is climate change. As well as the phenomenon of desertification, increasing rates of drought, soil degradation and a decrease in the level of rain, which has decreased by 10% and is expected to decrease to 20% by the year 2050.The decrease in the level of rain has affected the change in the quality and quantity of water in the groundwater, and the increase in nitrate content in 86% of wells and chloride by 76%. At a concentration much higher than recommended by the World Health Organization, due to the impact of the recharge amount for the aquifers.
    Also, the high rates of the minimum and maximum temperatures in the summer, their decrease in the winter, the increase in the number of very hot summer days, severe heat waves and extreme weather conditions, and this is what weather experts do not guarantee in the Mediterranean climate, which is known for its moderate and pleasant climate.
    All these phenomena directly threaten agricultural production. Experts expect that the Jordan River will completely dry up at the end of the current century, as well as abandoning agriculture and the spread of diseases. Especially in the Gaza Strip, which suffers from the highest population density in the world.
    We move to answer the second question. If I live in another different country, my answer will definitely differ. Let us assume that I live in North Africa or in tropical regions in which what these areas suffer is different from what the eastern Mediterranean regions suffer, some of which are afflicted by floods and torrents, some of which are afflicted by this drought in addition to extreme poverty The weakness of the capabilities in others, and the solutions that suit these areas may not suit the region in which I live. Each region has its own geographical nature, capabilities and material capabilities that affect either negatively or positively the climate changes in it.
    From here we move to answer the third question that the place affects a person’s opinion about the issue of making the world greener. Poverty sometimes does not leave a person room to think about anything except in the collection of his day’s sustenance and makes him not care about what is going on around him in the world and what follows poverty is ignorance that supports people's opinion of negativity. Towards global matters and issues.

    Regarding the first step, the first branch; I will answer yes, because our climate in Palestine is moderate but closer to moderate warm. In winter, for example, the percentage of cultivation increases in the winter due to improving the quality of vital and chemical soil and people's consumption of crops, and this change in climate causes the emergence of a number of climatic phenomena in the summer such as: heat waves And drought, especially in low-lying areas such as coastal plains. The second branch: the climate of my country, Palestine, so the fact that Palestine is located in the east of the Mediterranean makes it to the right of the atmospheric dips affecting the eastern Mediterranean in winter, so heavy rain falls in the north and the amount of rain decreases towards the south and in the east the weather is as mild as in the west. The third branch: More than half of the population of Palestine lives in cities, and the population is increasing annually more than before, and this increase is a great harm to the state in many ways, for example: an increase in waste consumption, an increase in environmental pollution and noise. This expansion occurs at the expense of natural resources and green spaces, which increases the vulnerability of societies to the effects of climate change, how does it affect their thinking about returning to the green environment, for example: if a person lives in residential complexes consisting of buildings, this affects the green spaces because there is no place to make the area Greener, as in Palestine, the population lives next to each other, the more noise and the less they think about the green return.

    First Step :
    I live in Palestine (Gaza) and it is the region most affected by climate change in Palestine where the three wars over it contributed to the high rate of air pollution with toxic gases and dust resulting from use of bombs and rocket - propelied grenades .and consequently l witnessed a great changein the climate during the past 15 years .
    On the level of food security in Palestine , it has been greatly affected in previous seasons as a result of climate change as heavy rain and snow spells led to the death of poultry , sheep and cows on farms, and this led to high prices in specific seasons and in some areas led to the spread of drought .
    So I don't think that building back greener Will be easy because if we decide to rebuild , we will have negative impacts of climate change that prevent us from that ,so we must First to try to correct the effects of climate change in order to be able to rebuild, but l think it will be very expensive and l do not think that most of people understand and appreciate of climate change , but if we strive and work together we will certainly succeed .

    The second step:
    My opinion about who said the statement (A) I think he is and engineer or the ruler of the city but in any cause l agree with him because this epidemic has increased the damage above climate change, so it will cost more.
    My opinion of who said the statement (B ) I think he is one of people live in the city and l don't agree with his opinion at all because it is clear that he dose not understand the seriousness of the matter like many others do .

    C: I think this statement might be said by a world leader, because he speaks to his people and gives them things briefly and clearly, and tells them how urgent it is in the urgency to tackle climate change.

    D: I think the one who would say this statement is a climate activist, because he clearly knows how much change is taking place in this period.

    B: I think the one who might say this is a factory employer because he knows that a building back greener is going to take steps regarding factories that aren't environmentally friendly, and he does not want his factory and business to be harmed due to the change measures, and he tries to find any argument to convince people that it is not necessary the change.

    where i live, Tunisia, i can see clearly the effects of climate change because i have personnaly experienced a lot of extreme weathers here
    last year's winter, there were floods that lasted for some couple of days and we stopped going to school. this summer, there were big fires because of the extreme hot weather in "Nfidha". that was dangerous and caused so many losses on human and material level. for the first time in many years two natural catastrophies happen in the same year, it affected badly on our lives and we weren't expecting that at all.
    also, this couple of years, it usually rains on summer which is something that we aren't used to it, it seems so strange
    and to not forget the real disaster that happened in "Nabel" three years ago, in September 2018, where there were big and heavy floods that lasted for weeks and it caused deaths, many people found themselves homeless, nobody can go to school or work and it's more like time has stopped, just like what's happening now due the Covid 19
    all the TVs and radios talked about it thenة the government tried its best to help the affected families by giving them houses where to live.
    and not only Tunisia faced this in these couple of years but many other countries ; i remember when Central Africa faced floods, when Europe faced a snow storm earlier in spring which was something mysterious and strange.
    but unfortunately, nobody is realizing that the climate change is the thing that is causing all this harm. nobody is aware, many people still don't even know what climate change really means and defines and honestly this is so sad. i hope people become aware as soon as possible because our generation has to take another step and make the total change
    remember, it's never too late !

    In the best of my knowledge, where someone lives may affect their opinion about building back greener. Conditions in that place, for example, if someone lives in the part of the country where there is more heat in the area due to deforestation, then that person may think of building back greener for that place to become cool and refreshing again. And this will promote the person's interest in building back greener.
    On the contrary, if someone is living in a countryside, where the place is surrounded by green vegetation, the idea of building back greener will not bother him or her.

    Building back greener is becoming too expensive for the people especially the working class. They go to work early in the morning and comes home late. They work all day. Most of them don't have time to build back greener. And also, in the cities, there are streets, and the road sides are also filled with pavement tiles. So not to talk of growing grass.

    Some people are of the opinion that building back greener might be difficult. For instance, in the northern part of Ghana, where the sun is hot. Therefore, it will be hard to build back greener. If you want to grow trees at the northern part of Ghana, one needs to apply fertilizer, fence the plant in order to protect it from over-grazing and finally water them frequently especially during dry season for them to survive.
    This cumbersome exercise is discouraging people from showing interest in building back greene

    I can see the effects of climate change in my country a little bit different. No doubt, that climate change is the main reason beyond the high temperature in my country. This temperature leads to what we called premature aging, skin problems and some other diseases. All these effects lead the companies to think of solutions but unfortunately unhealthy ones. For example, using chemical skin creams, medicines..etc.
    This is only one example but there are countless examples to set with the same idea. The main question here shall when to replace all these chemicals with organic materials ?

    Am still young and maybe I don't know what was the climate like before but I usually hear adults say that it changed a lot. But 2 years ago there was a heavy rain which lasted 5 days non stop. It was a type of extreme weather. Rivers flooded and the infrastructure was not that good to resist the amount of rain fall. An old house in the neighbourhood collapsed leaving a dead woman. We were worried each time it was cloudy because we had been helping the homeless families already and wanted no more rain until we fix the big mess. I had a friend in South Korea and i described what happened, she was perplexed but at the same time angry why there wasn't enough precaution like what they do in their country. I felt that there was a lack of ready strategy to combat such events. Extreme weather is obviously more devastating in countries which are not ready to face it

    But in my country Uganda, the seasons are no longer the same and are unpredictable with extreme temperatures[high and low]
    A person who owns industries would be concerned about profits and losses with how much is he adding onto his net worth.
    While for a person whose child is sick with Asthma would be more concerned about building back greener than anyone because he or she knows the challenges that come with pollution

    Limiting the damages of climate change to the monetary value is a problem. That climate change is an economic problem must be a deception.
    The cost of combating (climate change) does not represent about one percent of global annual economic output. In some other words, fighting climate change will pay off.
    How can we compare the current burdens with the costs that will occur in the next 300 years?

    To achieve the goal of lowering the temperature, economists have started with the price of carbon dioxide. Every ton of carbon dioxide that comes from burning fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas is linked to certain prices. As prices rise, the demand decreases. So, it is imperative to find alternative energy sources.
    Environmental economists believe that "to reach the goal of limiting the earth's temperature to two degrees, the initial price of one ton of carbon dioxide must reach the limits of $ 100."
    The price for carbon dioxide is much lower than that, at $ 5--10 per ton.
    To estimate economic costs, economists design complex models, based on a wealth of assumptions about developments that will emerge over the next few centuries. Each of these economists is criticized and described as either too optimistic or too pessimistic.
    These thick books published by the UN Panel on Climate Change - all these hard-to-understand material: a chart here, plans there, plus some statement is useless as a matter of fact. Taking something out of all of this can be understood, displayed, or experienced. Here lies the art of creating and creating models.
    What economists show, with their limited view of the size of the costs incurred in rich countries and the damage inflicted on people in poor countries, is only the injustice of economic comparisons.

    The rulers of the world expect politicians to find solutions, and politicians expect economists to present plans and models for a solution, and each throws the task on the shoulders of those who are less in power and no one cares about our planet.

    Palestine is living in a state of climatic injustice by virtue of which it is one of the least-third countries in the world, in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, while we find it one of the regions most affected by global warming, resulting from these emissions. Our region also has difficulty adapting to these climatic changes due to its floundering in major problems, including poverty, lack of democracy, bribery, and weak economic growth and human development.Fossil fuel subsidies send a different signal that encourages waste and discourages low-carbon growth. By phasing out subsidies on harmful fossil fuels, different countries can reallocate their resources to the most needy and most effective areas, including targeted support for the poor.

    About $ 550 billion was allocated to subsidies of fossil fuels worldwide in 2013, thereby deducting a huge proportion of the GDP of some countries for artificially reducing energy prices. However, Kim said, "The evidence shows that fossil fuel subsidies do not protect the poor at all." Studies show that the wealthiest 20 percent of the population gets six times more benefits from fossil fuel subsidies than the poorest 20 percent.

    Reforming subsidies is never an easy process. Citizens often do not realize the true cost of energy, and increasing support for the poor must begin with the gradual elimination of subsidies. The World Bank is providing support for fossil fuel subsidy reform through a $ 20 million fund that will help countries design and implement subsidy reform programs and accompanying social protection systems.

        A government subsidy is money that the central government gives to a specific project. This type of financing is usually used when the government and parliament decide that the recipient should be financed by the state, but with the funds operating independently of the state. International aid and aid to Palestine have reached 35.4 billion dollars since the establishment of the Palestinian Authority in 1994.

    In the last period, Palestine was experiencing an extreme climate.
    For example, it is experiencing very low heat waves or very high heat waves.
    Climate scientists have said that this happens due to the effect of greenhouse gases and therefore this affects important sectors such as agriculture, industry, tourism and others.
    Studies covering Palestine and its surroundings predict one of the most likely manifestations of climate change in Palestine is a 20% percent drop in rainfall from now to 2050.
    Climate scientists predict that by the end of the century the Jordan River will be completely dry.
    Also, an increase in temperatures is expected by the end of the current century, which according ranges from 2.2 degrees Celsius to 5.1 degrees Celsius.
    It's a really big problem , we must try to trap gas emissions in Palestine!

    Furthermore, change in rainfall pattern is killing the interest of building back greener. The reason being that the planted trees will die and their effort will be in vain.

    The reason why where I is very expensive to build back greener is that our population in the community is very less and most of them are workers too, so they do not have time to plant trees and also water them in order to survive. Unfortunately, people grow animals such as goats, sheeps and other domestic animals. Some of these animals go to destroy the trees so it caused waste of time to those who have put their interest in building back greener.

    The most popular opinion among people is the opinion B, people believe that climate change doesn't affect their lives, so there is no need to build back greener, and here comes the answer to that question "why people don't interact with climate change as they do with Covid 19 ?", because they think that climate change doesn't kill people, but Covid 19 does, people don't realize that climate change may kill people, for example climate change causes water pollution, which leads to the death of many people, as in India, also in Indonesia, the death toll has reached 66 as a result of floods in 2020 due to climate change.

I have previously seen a very beautiful video that talks about the importance of the environment, its beauty and its benefits. I am also very convinced of the campaign to educate people about the environment and its preservation, and I have been encouraged to Inform people about this issue and solve it before it is too late, because if we do not work on solving it, we will be completely destroyed, and that the air is an essential and important element in our lives, and we must maintain that it is not polluted. We can also work on creating awareness programs and videos via YouTube to educate people .

    •I think person "B" Is least likely to support building back greener, he seems to be a guy that's rich and Don't care about his environment, and others, so he could change his mind if. I told him "if we have had environment everyone will suffer and have a Tough time, nowadays people should support each other".
    •person D, and person For seems the most influenced by freinds and familys, because they are thinking about them, and thinking about solutions for them.
    Step 4
    •I think it's person E
    •I do agree and disagree because sometimes that one person can do a huge thing that will change the climate change, while if they made a simple thing it won't really affect the climate.
    • we should build back greener even if some people don't agree
    •i do agree with that, because every country needs a good one , it saves peoples lives sometimes.

    If you live in a different country, will your answer differ?

    The climate change that we are witnessing today is part of the natural cycles that the planet is going through, some of which are natural causes and others are caused by human activity. With the growing phenomenon of global warming and the accompanying rise in the temperature of the planet, we are witnessing an expansion in the phenomenon of desertification, an increase in soil salinity, a disturbance at the beginning of the rainy seasons and an irregularity in the amount of rainfall, sometimes a decrease in rain and another time a huge amount of it, or what is called It has torrential rain spells. In recent years, we have seen unexpected floods and in countries that have not been accustomed to these phenomena in their recent history, which leaves devastating consequences, especially on farmers and the agricultural sector, which increases the challenges faced by the simple farmer who was dependent on regular rains and fixed dates for cultivation. Climatic conditions, from a rise in temperatures above their averages and a decrease in precipitation rates, to a significant deterioration in the olive yield in the West Bank. Non-governmental organizations concerned with the agricultural situation in Palestine say that the olive harvest in the West Bank amounted to about ten thousand tons in 2018, which is half of the annual production rates, which revolved around more than 20 thousand tons. It is estimated that olive production constitutes about half of the total agricultural production in Palestine, and about a hundred thousand families depend on it for their livelihood.

    Oceans are made of drops of water, likewise our small actions can have a huge impact. Look at what happened when people found themselves in lockdown and their use of energy was reduced, the ozone layer started to heal. Even without lockdown we can heal our planet and reduce global warming effects. All is in our minds and daily habits. Switching off lights when we are out or when it's a sunny day and we can use the sun light instead. Sharing cars and maintaining them in good state to reduce fumes emissions. Why not using personal bag each time we go shopping?how many people go shopping everyday, imagine all of them uses his own personal bag instead of plastic bags with each shopping. I wonder if we use a glass of water to brush our teeth instead of a running tap how much water will be saved? How much water will be saved to resist possible droughts. Wise daily actions surely lead to positive change. Do we really need to use central heating every day in winter? Why not putting on thicker clothes instead? Do we really need to keep cars engine on all the time even when we are stopping in long lines of traffic jams or when we go into a shop for a while? Going green is surely a collaborative efforts that's why the individual 's action is so huge if we spread the word and take those actions together and make them our daily habits

    I think person F is least likely to support building back greener. But this is what I would say to them to change their mind. You see, when you only think about your job and how it pays for food e.t.c and ignore the bigger picture, soon you'll begin to suffer the consequences and your job won't even save you. Forexample if you watch people cutting trees and you say say or do nothing, soon drought will be there and cause food scarcity and soon it will be too expensive that you will not even afford it with your salary. In the end you may loose your family. So it is important that you care about how your company affects the environment.

    How do we protect our environment without spending a lot of money?
    Our environment is in dire straits while the garbage and pollution do not stop increasing. Trying to live greener can seem very daunting given the wrong things we do.
    What can we do to reduce this? Where do we start?
    Sustainability starts at home and in the area we live in to save money by going green. Here are ways to help:
    Installing aerators are cheap, easy to install, and significantly reduce the flow of water from your aquarium, which saves money and water.
    Wash your clothes in cold water and the clothes will be completely clean, but without the energy that is spent on heating the water.
    Make your shower take 5 minutes.
    Replacing light bulbs with LED lights.
    - Turn off your computer and screen when you are done using it.
    Planting trees in the yard helps to absorb carbon dioxide from the air and increase the amount of oxygen gas.
    Shop with reusable grocery bags.
    If your home is close to the school or workplace, you do not need to take a car.
    Use of renewable energy sources.
    There are many ways to follow it and in the end, if everyone abides by the previous measures, we can protect our environment and our planet from the threat that threatens it.

    The issue of climate change in Palestine has become an issue of great importance and a high place, causing an accelerated pace, as the climate changes due to global warming and harmful gases , It has negatively and significantly affected many areas in Palestine, such as the health, agricultural, water, and economic fields, among others, The State of Palestine is considered one of the countries that have not been affected much by climate change. We say that it has been affected, but not much because it does not produce many environmental pollutants and global warming., But it is located within the eastern Mediterranean region most affected by climate change , And you recently noticed new weather phenomena in Palestine that threaten its water, food, health and other security Such as ,1- Desertification
    2-Droughts
    3-Soil degradation
    4- A change in temperature The temperature rises significantly in the summer and decreases in the winter
    5- Increase the number of summer days
    6- Increase the percentage of thunderstorms harmful to agriculture.
    7- Increase the salinity of irrigation water ,( We may notice that most of the changes affected significantly in several areas, but they were remarkably severe in the areas of agriculture and water security.) , Indeed, the decrease in the rate of precipitation, its instability, desertification, drought, and others resulted in severe damage to the Palestinian agricultural product. According to the organizations concerned with the agricultural situation in Palestine, we have suffered from a halving of the olive harvest by 10 thousand tons. Many farmers lose vegetables for their products because of the high temperature and others, We see from what I said that climate change has greatly affected the place in which I live, and I hope that everyone will help from someone so that our situation does not get worse.

Because if we all get up and are convinced of his point of view, the matter will worsen in the future. Climate changes will affect his family, who is interested in them. View No. 2 Why because even if he Climate change has not affected a region at the present time, it may affect the future negatively. That is why everyone should help to avoid disasters. Perspectives No. 4 We cannot go back. It is true that the development of technology is harmful to the environment and the climate, but it is beneficial to humans , The process of building greener aims to maintain technological development and wipe out all its negative effects on climate and nature

    I do not agree with B because global warming is affecting our lives but systematically,it will take a long time before we will see the effects of global warming in our lives which means it's affecting us so please, we need to build back greener now.

    The third step, the first section of the sixth opinion is the least likely to help the climate, and I tell him that we cannot do the same as ignoring the effects of the climate because it will become more severe and destructive, and the end of the world may be at its hand. , So we are doing the process of building greener to help the environment, climate and preserve our lives and the lives of our loved ones in The future so that climate change does not affect them negatively

    The fourth step, the second section, yes, the world led it
    They have more power to control climate change than the public. Why is it because they have the economy, money and so on, and with one order, whoever does not do and does not agree to the building process may be forced to greener , Also, they have the authority over the owners of factories harmful to the environment, the owners of money and the people do not have a great role over these people, so if the authority is interested in the construction process, the people follow it and have positive effects greatly on the climate.

    F who is a business woman is selfish, she thinks about the lives of her family and herself only. Global warming will affect all of us if we don't build back greener now. Building back greener might be quite expensive but we can grow trees to reduce the cost of money that will be used to build back greener.

    Mum said that she used to see birds flocks flying over the beach . But now and because of the climate change I missed such natural view. More, people used to have large size of fish with tasty flavors; now the same species of fish seem to be smaller and smaller. On the top of mountains there were lots of foxes and gazelles but a few of them are still there while the rest moved to other places because of the drought. All in all climate change affects animals lives negatively.

    People sometimes have conflicting opinions on the same subject, and seldom do we find everyone agreeing on the same issue at hand. So, here it is that building back greener will be expensive but getting the world back on track after the pandemic will cost alot any way. We agree with him in this saying that the Corona pandemic has greatly affected education, health, and the economic and social situation in the world and has brought us back years, but building back greener is a matter that cannot be underestimated, as climate changes are accelerating at a dangerous pace that may be more catastrophic than the pandemic and each of us discusses this matter from his own point of view and all A region operating alone despite the global agreement on the seriousness of climate change, which made 196 countries and with them the European Union sign the United Nations Framework Convention in 1992, the aim of which is to stabilize human-source emissions of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere at a level that prevents any dangerous human influence on the climate system.
    Each region has its own customs, traditions, capabilities and nature that affect its residents, who in turn rely on their experiences, cultures, abilities and standard of living, and this thus affects their opinions and their interest in global issues.
    Global warming doesn't affect my life so there's no need to builc back greener than before. Without obstacles, he does not care about what is going on in the world around him, and many people follow such opinions and many others disagree with him. An example of this is that what a person likes is not necessarily that the other likes, maybe I like the taste of tea, but others feel nauseous.
    Ìf we dosn't build back greener now, then when are we going to do? I agree with this saying and it may be that the climat activist said someone provoked him when he did not pay attention to his warnings and expressed his opinion with this force. Yes, when will we move to save the earth and it is possible that others will listen to this opinion and not care about it because they consider it not their problem nor their responsibility.
    There's been too much change recently, let's just go back how things were. It is not easy to return to what we were before, but if efforts are combined, we may be better off later if each of us started by himself, for example, reduces the use of plastic materials and uses public transportation, does not throw waste into the water or in the soil, so increasing the green area is not sufficient to solve the problem The person must treat himself in the beginning, so from you the solution begins with yourself, then with others we will become hand in hand and we will change.
    Whatever is best for the environment and the climate is best for people too. Perhaps someone said this phrase is demanding and that it is a foregone conclusion and correct, and he agreed with him. For example, the thing that we fear for, we put it in the best place. The environment is the incubator, the climate is the elixir of life, it is the air that we breathe and the water that we drink. Give your best to preserve this environment in which you live because if you destroy it you will destroy your life in it and pay attention to what you produce around you because it will return to you today or later.
    I just need any job to feed my family .I don't cure if it's working for agreen business or not. This is a natural thing that we expect from many, although I do not agree with it and many are like me. In my opinion, poverty sometimes makes a person think only about himself because hunger is a fatal monster and the need for food is a human problem since the beginning of creation. Man's need for safety now necessitates him to think seriously about the dangerous direction that the planet is heading to. This does not mean that the author of this opinion is the only one who adopts this opinion. No, poor countries, and even in developed countries, who have negative opinions about them and act selfishly have the same opinion.
    In the end, we must act. For example, in Arab countries, for example, the president is the supreme authority, and everyone listens to him. Why should he not be effective in the issue of climate change? In many countries, we find that the media have a strong influence on people's opinions, so why not support the cause of climate change?

    Step3: Answer theese question
    1. Where would you put yourself on the timeline?
    I would put myself on 2000 because if I don't put myself self and that of others, I will end up causing harm to the next generation.
    A research which I did indicate that the National Aeronautics Space Administration says it is likely that even if we stop emitting green house gases today, climate change would continue to happen for at least several more decades. So I will advise myself and also advise others to stop emitting green house gases.
    Thank you!

    For the second step, the first branch: A / Activist in the field of climate news. B / political activist. C / They are the inhabitants of the city. D / is the profession of a trader. E / He is a government official in the state. F / He is a poor or low-income person. The second branch: the peasant's point of view. It is he who wants to make the state greener in order to increase his income and work. The third branch: the opinions of people differ according to the circumstances of their lives. Some of them are poor who are not interested, but they only want money to support his family, and among them the activist is someone who wants more green prosperity because of his work location, and people who want their country to be beautiful and healthy with green views, and every person has a viewpoint according to his aspirations.

    Step3:
    Question 2
    It is likely for them to say "global warming does not affect my life so there is no need to build back better than before". This is because in my community due to high unemployment people are eager to get a job because of their profit today and taking jobs which are not environmental friendly and will not benefit the next generation.
    Question 3
    Why someone might not support building back greener?
    Someone might not support building back greener because:
    1. Unemployment
    2. Uneducated about the effect of climate change and the impact on the next generation.
    Question 4
    How might fake news affect someone opinion?
    Fake news will affect someone thought and if those actions are taken such as deforestation etc it may lead to severe global warming.

    "One person's actions can not make a difference to the climate change."

    I strongly don't agree with this sentence, someone's actions affect others, whether good or bad deed, for example if someone starts to stop cutting trees, he will tell the rest of his friends about the danger of cutting trees, and his friends will also stop cutting trees, and his friends will tell their families and their families will inform their knowledge until the idea of ​​the danger of cutting trees reaches a group of people, going back to the basis of the topic, we find that the reason is one person’s action, also with bad deeds, for example if someone has burned waste to get rid of it, and another person saw him and remembered the waste accumulated and went to burn it also, from person to person and person to group this idea and this action were transmitted.
    As they say: "Change begins with you first."

    Despite the dangerous climate threats no measures have been taken regarding climate fluctuations and on avoiding these threats There are many people who are not aware of the dangers that will result from these threats The reason is that the media and did not care about the climate issue well and did not do any news releases about this the case There are also many people who are aware of these dangers but are indifferent to this issue and if we search for the reason we find that these people did not see any measures by the government and those responsible for this problem that is they did not receives adequate encouragement from anyone We have to realize that the actions of one person will not be able to solve this problem Rather we must cooperate to solve it Even if many object .this problem is a dangerous global catastrophic problem that we must strive to solve.

    Good morning everyone, i am a precious _morning from Nepal, well my answer might be wrong and be different by others, but I will try my best to give right answers, I my country nepal climate change of an area concerns the average weather conditions, different part of the earth have different climate change because of the different amount of heat received from the sun. The place where someone lives can affect their opinion about building back grinner because people living in desert areas may not be able to plant trees and nature then to grow,for these reasons people may not want to plant trees at all. In my country nepal, the imfact of climate change can be clearly seen, climate change is projected to affect it's vital water resources energy supplies, security. More intense rainfall is expected to rainfall erosion, while less total rainfall, may decrease the water flow. The country's valnerability is largely due to dependence on the production of crops that are sensitive to climate change, including cassave. If every people will be agree we can change sth in our country. Thankyou💫🙏

    Hi
    I know climate change is everywhere but in my country, Ghana, it is not all that general
    It depends on where the person is leaving. Maybe the person is living at a place where the climate change is high. If the climate change is high the best thing to do to help their opinion " Building Back Greener " is
    1. Afforestation: It is the process of planting more trees
    And also stop deforestation
    2. Using energy efficient cars
    If the person do all this it can improve their opinion Building Back Greener
    Thank you my fellow students

    The issue of climate change in Palestine has become of great importance, and awareness has increased in light of the rapid changes in the Palestinian climate, that global warming is the cause of many of the negative effects that have affected large sectors of Palestinian life such as water, agriculture, health, food security and Other .
    We also notice this problem greatly.

    My country, the State of Palestine, has a limited impact on the issue of climate change, but it is located within the eastern Mediterranean region that is most affected by climate change.
    Here the problem completes:
    Few emissions with many negative impacts

    The percentage of climate pollution in Palestine is less than 1% compared to other countries, and the emissions per capita in Palestine are very low, as it was estimated in 2011 at 0.8 tons of carbon dioxide emissions - the cause of global warming - in contrast 7.5 tons per capita globally, and the debate arose recently about the new climate phenomena in the Palestinian territories, and it has become clear that it is directly related to a global problem that changes the course of the globe and threatens its security in many vital sectors.

    The phenomenon of climate change in Palestine has great effects that have clearly emerged during the past years, and these phenomena have been represented by desertification, an increase in the number of droughts and soil degradation, and climate change has led to a rise in the minimum and maximum temperatures in summer and their decrease in the winter, in addition to the increase in hot summer days. In this regard, the Environmental Quality Authority confirmed that climate change was the reason behind the severe heat waves and extreme weather that struck Palestine in the summer of 2015.

    Water sources in Palestine are the most affected by the phenomenon of global warming, as it had a clear effect on changing the seasonal rate of rains and the decrease in their quantities, as the rate of rainfall during the period 2003-2010 was less than the historical average, and the number of times of heavy rain spells increased. The chances of flooding increased, especially in crowded cities with modest rainwater drainage networks, and droughts and high temperatures led to a decrease in water levels in the Jordan River and the Dead Sea.

    Palestine is also exposed to thunderstorms, which have had a negative impact on agricultural production, which exacerbated the economic and social problems in terms of increasing poverty and instability, especially among local farmers, who do not receive adequate support from the official authorities.

    And one of the most harmful effects on the Palestinian environment as a result of climate change is the wave of devastating fires that struck Haifa, Jerusalem and other cities, devouring trees and forests, this wave of fires.

    In terms of food security in Palestine, it was affected greatly in previous seasons as a result of climate change, as heavy rain and snow spells led to the death of poultry, sheep and cows on farms, which raised demand and reduced supply, and led to higher prices in specific seasons. The global effects of the spread of drought a few years ago led to a rise in global grain prices, and the Palestinian economy was affected by it, and the purchasing power decreased.

    I will tell you about the impact of global warming in a town in my country, the town of Maamouri, south of Gaza.

    The salinity of the groundwater increased, and the rains became scarce, due to global warming.

    The olive harvest in the West Bank reached about ten thousand tons in 2018, which is half of the annual production rates, which revolved around more than 20 thousand tons. It is estimated that olive production constitutes about half of the total agricultural production in Palestine, and about a hundred thousand families depend on it for their livelihood.

    Many vegetable growers lost more than half of the summer season production due to an unusually high temperature and the resulting poor pollination of flowers and the spread of harmful insects in addition to the steady increase in the salinity of irrigation water. Farmers also complained of strange phenomena that pose new challenges, such as vineyards that did not put forth leaves and fruits at the beginning of the spring season, because they were not exposed to low temperatures as usual at the beginning of the year. The delayed rains, in light of the high temperatures, led to the emergence of many fungal diseases on citrus and olive trees, which led to the rapid deterioration of some of them and their complete drying.

    .Yes , the impact of the climate in our lives, where the windd are loaded with dust and dry air , causing people to suffer from chest ,diseases allergies and asthma , and also the three wars led to air pollution due to toxic gases and dust resulting from the use of bombs and shells, and l note that the heavy rain and snow led to the death of poultry.

    .I'm from Palestine our climate is moderate , nice rainy in the winter and warm in the summer , we can adapt to where we go out for a walk and go to the seashore , ease of the movement, and plants grow unlike some countries whose climate is hot through the year they don't go outside the house and from high temperatures bocomes drought and forest fires and some rainy countries and snow throughout the year as the movement stops and becomes frost and some poultry and birds die .

    World leaders have more power than the public to "build back greener."
    This sentence is correct as I see it, because leaders have the power and they have the greatest potential to build back greener, nevertheless, we see some global leaders don't show interest in climate change despite their power to compel people to follow environmentally friendly methods, but people can do something about climate change, like increasing tree planting and trying to stop and move away from the use of fossil fuels, but not all people want to do that because they do not give importance to climate change, here leaders and governments can force people to do it, also leaders have greater awareness of climate change more than people, this my opinion.

    Global warming will affect poor countries more than prosperous countries, as an example in my country, Palestine, from the expected effects that we, as Palestinians, will suffer from water scarcity, which is what has already begun to happen, as the aquifer is not fed by more than 70% of our needs, which will be reflected in agriculture. Soil fertility, and it will lead to the disappearance of crops and crops, leading to desertification due to drought, not to mention the spread of epidemics.

    Among the dangers that have been monitored, according to scientific research and extensive studies, is that the sea level rise will eat the western part of the Strip, and rather will be a prelude to other natural disasters in it. Unfortunately, I live in Gaza ..

    Oh poor Tunisia! Every year, as the summer season approaches, my country suffers from an escalation of fires, from Bizerte to Kairouan. For many years, numerous fires destroyed crops and forests.
    Usually, the wildfire season begins at the end of July as the climate and high temperature have helped fires which are a seasonal summer threat as they can only start, intensify and spread in hot weather and dry combined with relatively strong winds.
    Burning forests emit greenhouse gases that worsen global warming and reduce forest area.
    The impact of forest fires in Tunisia is enormous, starting with the damage to biodiversity (trees and shrubs, with all the plants and animals associated with them).
    There is also the Sirocco phenomenon which is closely linked to the occurrence of the largest forest fires.
    I have a feeling of bitterness when fire destroys everything because forests are the home of our animal friends and a source of oxygen for all living things. in short, the future is smoky if we do not work to reduce the number and severity of forest fires which will also help slow climate change.

    The State of Palestine is considered to have a limited impact compared to others on the issue of climate change, but it is located within the eastern Mediterranean region most affected by climate change, according to the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for the year 2014.

    Few emissions with many negative impacts

    The percentage of climate pollution in Palestine - according to the Environmental Quality Authority - is less than 1% compared to other countries, and the emissions per capita in Palestine are very low, as it was estimated in 2011 at 0.8 tons of carbon dioxide emissions - the cause of the phenomenon.

    The phenomenon of climate change in Palestine has great effects that have clearly emerged during the past years, and these phenomena have been represented by desertification, an increase in the number of droughts and soil degradation, and climate change has led to a rise in the minimum and maximum temperatures in summer and their fall in winter, in addition to the increase in hot summer days In this regard, the Environmental Quality Authority confirmed that climate change was the reason behind the severe heat waves and extreme weather that hit Palestine in the summer of 2015.

    Where I live in Palestine, the impact of climate change appears dramatically, as the Palestinian Authority does not have a sovereign jurisdiction over its natural resources or large areas of its lands, and it does not have the independent political will to decide how to manage climate , but it is required to address climate change, and this makes the Authority’s efforts Made to adapt to ineffective climate change ...
    We are facing declining rainfall, accompanied by an increase in temperature. Which leads to water insecurity. Thus, it negatively affects agriculture,
    Therefore, the Palestinian Authority should enable and encourage sustainable agriculture, agroecology, and a cooperative economy that can achieve more sustainable adaptive capacity.
    The Palestinian Authority and partner organizations should also work to coordinate the collection, analysis and sharing of climate-related information. Priority should be given to developing policies that reduce the risks of natural disasters and financing projects aimed at addressing or preventing the effects of climate change.

    Step 1
    _ In fact, in the city I live in, we did not see the effects of climate change like some countries, and the only thing that happened is the extension of the high temperatures in 2020 and the hot weather that prevails in Palestine now
    _ It will differ according to the weather and its changes and the effects of climate change on it
    _ If a person lives in a crowded country full of pollution, I think that he may feel bad because of that, or he may accept to live with pollution like India, as it is one of the countries that suffer from air pollution, or for example: If the country conducts awareness campaigns About the importance of the environment, its rights to us, the damages of pollution and how it will affect us in the future, a person's awareness of this topic will increase, but if he lives in a country that only cares about his present and does not care about his future, then I think that the person will not have an environmental awareness or an idea about the risks that we may face, in short : "The state is the primary factor in a person gaining environmental awareness, and a major factor in encouraging a person to help rebuild greener."

    Step 2
    A_ I think that he is a prisoner because he wears prisoner clothes, and he is not aware of what is happening in the outside world because he lives in prison
    B _ I think that he is a isolated person from the world, who only cares about the problems he faces
    C _ I think she is an old woman who reads a lot of books about the dangers that may face us or that she was working as an environment editor in her youth, so she is aware of the importance of rebuilding and the importance of using time
    D _ I think that she is a citizen who does not know about rebuilding a greener place because her country does not conduct awareness campaigns on this subject
    E _ I think she is a sports player who is bothered by pollution and overcrowding and believes that the interest and protection of the environment is the protection of people and will contribute to providing them with comfort.
    F _ She is a person who finished his university, and could not find a job, and this made him feel frustrated, and this frustration made him not care about the problems that we face, and because poverty is also one of the problems that no one can overlook, her goal has become only to eliminate the poverty that her family faces
    _D , Because he is a person who thinks about his present and does not think about the future that awaits him, and for me it is wrong to think only about our present, we have to think about the future, because if we think about the future, we will be able to make a good decision for our present, but she only thinks about her present and wants the return of her daily life.
    _I respect everyone’s opinion on this matter and respect them more because they thought about that, even if their thinking was negative, these beliefs are not supposed to be correct, because they are opinions and not facts , And also the difference of Mtaktmathm because the conditions in which they live and the changes they see are not that serious, that is, the place in which the person lives affects his opinion about the matter, and because the state did not educate them about this matter, and also the factor The most important thing is people's thinking , there are those who think about their present, there are those who think about their comfort, and there are those who think about their future, and there are those who do not think in the first place, so I think that everyone thinks in the way it deems appropriate, but if they have an environmental awareness about this, they will be convinced of it, and They will change perspectives, in short
    "It is possible to build a correct thought if we build ourselves on facts and not beliefs that we think are appropriate."

    I suppose the question to be put is related to EQUALITY. If some countries or areas are not harming the environment like industrial ones why should they assume the responsibility and suffer the dangerous consequences? EQUALLY also is related to the ability of those poor countries to face these consequences like extreme weather events. We can't deny that the effects now are felt worldwide but there is a heavier sense of fear in weaker countries. I mean those who can't afford the equipments or the budget to face floods, droughts or big fires. We need a worldwide strategy to face this but also more awareness by each individual to
    *behave wisely with natural resources and energy.
    *To consume bio
    *to join Green Groups
    *to vote for representatives who are advocates of going Green
    Most of all to "be the change they want to see in the world" not to celebrate Earth day to post photos and stories on social media for one day and forget about his daily duties towards this planet where we are all crew and not just passengers.

    "We should" build back greener "even if some people disagree" In my opinion, I think that the different opinions of people about climate change and a building back greener cannot change the reality of the seriousness of climate change and the necessity of a building back greener step, what if we take the people's disagreement to a building back greener step into consideration? Would we let climate change destroy the environment just for this reason?

    Hello, I from in Palestine. I want to talk about how the inhabitants of Palestine suffer from climate changes. The inhabitants of Palestine suffer from extreme cold, as every year the winter comes much colder than the year before it. In the past, the winter was cold and some rain fell, but now the winter is very cold and it falls. Snow and rain, which led to poor agricultural crops in Palestine, for example, the city of Gaza is famous for growing strawberries and exporting them because the winter is moderate in temperature, where it is very cold and some rain falls, but now farmers may suffer from strawberry crops damage due to snowfall on the crops, which leads to their corruption, which led To the weakness of Gaza's economy

    Step 1
    Of course, I can see the effects of climate change in my country of Palestine, which has a temperate climate where in the winter it is cold and in the summer it is hot and dry.
    In my opinion, the climate of my country of Palestine is appropriate and very good and does not affect negatively but positively on the level of agriculture in Palestine because Palestine is a country known for agriculture due to the moderate and appropriate climate and sometimes negatively, and this happens more in the summer when the temperature rises a lot, so it is possible to get heat stroke. This is about my experience In the climate of my country of Palestine
    In my opinion, it is possible that the place in which a person lives may influence his opinion of "rebuilding life greener". If he feels that the place in which he lives is appropriate and safe and he loves the place then that makes one not think about it, but in the age in which we live we must think In huge ways to bring life back greener

    Key indicators of local vulnerability to global climate change include accelerated rise in sea level and changing patterns Precipitation regionally. Among the most prominent impacts expected in Palestine -. In the current century precipitation rates have decreased accompanied by a significant increase in the average temperature. This combination of less rain and higher temperatures will result in increased demand for water (an already overexploited resource), whose supplies will continue to decrease in a way that does not meet the demand and may lead to water insecurity. Agriculture which is an essential component of the economy of the Occupied Palestinian Territory, will also suffer.The ClimaSouth Project supports efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change in Several in the Mediterranean basin. The project managers expect that the annual precipitation rate in the eastern Mediterranean region will reach 30% by the end of the current century, compared to the period 1961-1990. Meanwhile, average temperatures have risen in the past four decades by half a degree Celsius (0.5 ° C) in the Mediterranean region. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts that warming in the southern and eastern Mediterranean will increase at a higher rate than the global average in the 21st century - between 2 °. 2 and 5 °. 1 ° C - which will lead to destructive, if not catastrophic, regional climate changes, including increased desertification and recent studies covering Palestine and its environs expect that one of the aspects of climate change in Palestine that is expected to occur is a decrease in the amounts of rain 10% from now until 2020, and 20% until 2050, and climate scientists, according to some scenarios, that the Jordan River will completely dry up. With the end Present century.
    It is important to say that the rise in temperature is not related to local strategies, as much as it is related to climate change at the global level, while local strategies try to adapt to those global circumstances. Wcc The phenomenon of climate change in Palestine is somewhat alarming, and this was confirmed by the Palestinian Central Statistics Center's warning in a statement on the occasion of the World Environment Day against the phenomenon of climate change, where it indicated that the phenomenon of climate change threatens environmental, health, social and economic consequences of wide impact, which It affects all walks of life and plans Development.

    On behalf of my friend:
    I think that people that are most likely to not change their bad habits are most likely to realise in the future how important climate change is.
    Statements:
    I disagree with the first statement because everyone's actions matter. If we all do our part we can make a big change.
    I am on the fence with the second statement because the world leaders have more power they can make a change but sometimes it may not be in a good way. I still believe the public have enough power to make a change because they are the ones who are changing their lifestyle for the environment.
    I agree with the third and final statement because every little change matters and if we listen to the people who don't want to change then we will never "build back greener".
    Our overall view on this topic is that even if you don't want to change your bad habits, you probably should because it will help future generations and also our Earth.
    There is no Planet B. We need to cherish our one and only world and Mother Nature.

    Each and every one of us has a role to play in helping restore climate change. This can be done through proper waste disposal, tree planting campaign, use of biofuel, waste recycle and taking necessary steps to minimize global warming.
    World leaders are to move away from PowerPoint presentations to concrete actions. multinationals and rich countries are expected to genuinely help less developed countries with funds, mass literacy, and technologies that foster a greener environment.

Isn't it a sign of strange weather related to climate change? Well there were floods near our Tunisian desert two years ago. With this rythme I 'll not be surprised if we will see snow in the desert and droughts in rain forests. Climate change is affecting even our mood. Long droughts make us stressed.

    Well I would say that in the responses we haven't considered the students opinions.
    Yes, we don't have jobs, we don't own businesses and we are not leaders but our opinions matters because we are the future.
    Many students don't have the knowledge we are getting right now even though we are all learning about environment, climate and global warming in schools.

    But do students really understand the impacts of climate change?
    Do they have a way to convince their parents to build back greener?

    We are powerful in our own way, if enough education is given to students then I believe we can have a better tomorrow.
    Lets all start now by educating our fellow students, parents, guardians, neighbors, teachers and education leaders.

      But education alone is not enough. If we are convinced of building back greener and start to convince our parents and those around us in society about that, the first question we will face from them is, “What did building back greener over the past years, and we hear supporters of that cause, but the rate of climate change is still increasing And its effects are destroying the earth little by little. "
      We will automatically understand that there is no benefit to learning without the means, tools and bodies that support students in this field, as it is necessary to carry out effective activities that have a clear impact on the climate, whether at the level of the country or the world.
      By this we convince those in front of us of our cause in word and deed

    Step 1. In London, the air is usually tinged with grey, the sign of air pollution. There is also rubbish strewn across every road. My answer would vary on the situation of my area. For instance, in India, rickshaws are commonly used. This is better for the environment as it doesn't pollute the air.

    Step 2. A=World Leader, they commonly focus on finances and tax
    B=Young child, they wouldn't understand the impact of climate change
    C=Climate activist, this is their way of saying,"Don't postpone saving the planet!"
    D=Anyone, everyone has had a change in life due to Covid
    E=Climate activist, this might change people's views on global warming
    F=Parent, they will be more concerned about keeping the family alive and safe
    We haven't considered the perspective of high school children. I imagine that because nowadays we can see high school children protesting for their rights, they would say, "Changing for the climate is changing for the better! We need a cleaner world for future generations and children like us!"

    Step 3. I would put E in 2000, D and C in 2021, none in 2030, A in 2060 and F and B in never.
    I would put myself close to 2021 as I was born in 2011 and I became aware of climate change in 2017. Sadly, many people in my community do not care about climate change. They think Covid brought enough disorder to their lives, now they just want to go back to normal, not change for the better. People might not be keen on building back greener as they might think the expenses are high. If a politician posted fake news, people could sway to their side.

    Step 4. I disagree with the statement,"One person's actions can not make a difference to the climate," as that one person could be planting trees or encouraging others to react to the climate change. I disagree with the statement, 'World leaders have more power than the public to “build back greener”' as if the public unites, they will be stronger than that one person in command. I agree with the statement, "We should “build back greener” even if some people disagree," as a. Majority of the public agrees that we should build back greener and b. It's better for us.

    I would like to answer the question: why people have different opinions on the same thing?

    Different people have different opinions on the same thing because they have different reasoning according to the following:
    i) Economic level. Some people are poor while others are middle class and others are rich. Hence it is possible for the rich to take building back greener positively but for the poor ones their lives depends much on things that are not green friendly.

    ii) Country of residence. Well others live in third world countries like where I am. And here life is difficult for everyone. We witness our parents trying to survive daily. Thus, having any job is better than having nothing.

Others cut down trees to make charcoal to sell, others sell fire wood which is also from cutting down trees. So, education is really needed.

    Each person has his own opinion about "building back greener ". Some agree and some don't. How can where someone lives affect their opinion about it?
    Well, I might say that our entourage, family, friends, social media, news, etc take a big part in influencing our opinions. Even the effects of climate change that humans are exposed to are different according to regions, as they also interfere with changing our thoughts and perspectives.
    For example, teenagers, like us, spend their time mostly with friends or on social media which means we listen to them a lot, we follow them, and we take their advice. Hence, watching influencers from around the world talking about build back greener or discussing the issue with friends changes our opinions. However, older people, always follow the news on television or on phones and they usually believe what they hear about this crisis.
    Actually, the problem here is the possibility of fake news spreading about the importance of the climate change and its dangers or building back greener effects on our future.
    So, I can conclude my words by saying that our opinions about climate change or building back greener depend on where we live, who we listen to, whether we believe that climate change is so dangerous or not… Many people aren't believing in that because of their entourage and others are believing also because of the effects of climate change in some countries are stronger, visual and closer than other ones.

    Step 2
    A: I believe that now is the best time to confront the epidemic and restore the environment greener.
    It doesn't matter how much it may cost. I believe that by uniting all countries with each other in facing this matter will greatly help and will strengthen the bond between countries. Home quarantine has helped reduce gas. CO2 in the air, we don't know when the pandemic will end. It can take a long time, and if we don't find a solution to this quickly, the consequences will be dire, so I don't agree with this.
    B: Restoring the environment greener is the responsibility of every person who lives on the planet, whether he harms the environment intentionally or unintentionally we are all responsible for the damage that we face at the present time in order to make our lives easier we ignore the biggest problem facing us now and in the future if we don't find the solution, so I think the problem of global warming thermal rests with us all.
    C: The period of the epidemic was largely positive on nature, as the percentage of carbon dioxide decreased dramatically, as during the quarantine period, factories and cars did not operate expect in time of necessity, but we don't think in this way and we ignored the positivity of this issue and focused our attention on its negative aspects that affected society the human being is largely human, so we must learn something from that which is the beauty of thinking positively to make our lives more beautiful.
    D: I think that too,but how do we return? The only way is to restore the environment greener and reduce the proportion of toxic and greenhouse gases in the air, and we must take care of the environment. I wish the return was that easy.
    E : I think that the better the environment and climate, the better the human community and people will become because when you live without problems or worries about the future you will feel happier and luckier. In my opinion the problem of global warming is a serious problem that we shouldn't underestimate.
    F: We all agree that work is a main source of livelihood for all people, but is that means neglecting being a member of a one connected community? We know that this will affect the future of entire generation because protecting the planet is our responsibility if you think that this will not affect you negatively, but also because you are a part of this planet I don't think that money can change the values that person grew up with, As for those who suffer from poverty and ignorance here international organizations and associations should arouse their awareness toward protecting their environment. I think that all should have a prominent role in helping our environment regardless their economic situation.

    In my country, Nigeria, education is very scarce because of lack of school fees so people get any kind of jobs just so they can provide for their families. Majority of these people are men and most of them turn to crimes like armed robbery, suicide bombings and murder. If only our Government would provide schools for free. Look at Ben Carson for instance. He was the lowest in his whole class but suddenly,because of good education,he is a highly renowned neurosurgeon.This just goes to show that it is never to late to go to school

    In my opinion, I agree because climate change requires our cooperation and our union.
    Because always change begins with an idea carried out by society or several people.
    Some examples of the impact of climate change on our lives.
    As climate change kills a lot of people annually because of its desease and many of wildlife species have been ruled extinction by the year 2050.
    These are some examples, but what happened and what is happening is not a stupendous thing that will happen in the future, so if we fail to act, the number of people threatened will increase so Let's unite to solve this problem hand in hand, we can make miracles.
    I wonder when the day will come when a person feels his responsibility to preserve his environment.
    My question is the power of great countries like UK and USA can make change to help nature?

    eager_reflection here,
    Here are my answers for the Session.

    Step 1:
    a) Can you see the effects of climate change where you live? How? For example, you might have experienced extreme weather.
    I can see the effects of climate change because where I live, it is normally either very hot or very cold. Sometimes it can get hot during the winter and cold during the summer. This could be due to global warming. In the rest of the UK, in coastal towns, sometimes floods can happen, and people could be evacuated. These floods can happen often, and people cannot insure their homes.
    b) If you lived in a country with a different climate, how would your answer be different?
    My answer could be different in a country with a different climate because they may have a climate that has either been affected by climate change less or more than my country, England.
    c) How could where someone lives affect their opinion about “building back greener”?
    Someone who doesn't believe in climate change or doesn't think much about it may think that we do not need to "build back greener." On the other hand, people who live in a country that is greatly effected by climate change compared to other countries may believe that we need to "build back greener."

    Step 2:
    A) I think that the government would say Statement A because they have to pay to "build back greener." They may have doubts at first, but they may realise later on that having a fresh start after the pandemic will help slow down climate change.
    B) I think that people who don't believe climate change exists will say Statement B. This is because they will not think that it matters to them, and do not realise how climate change is affecting the planet.
    C) I think that climate activists would say Statement C because they are very passionate about their cause, and want to help slow and eventually stop climate change as soon as possible.
    D) I think a business owner would say Statement D because they have been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, with some of them nearly losing their business. Their main focus may not be climate change, and will want to keep their business running.
    E) I think that climate activists would also say Statement E because they care about the environment and people. They believe that climate change will affect everyone, so doing good for it will do good for everyone. Personally, I agree.
    F) I think that a person who has a low-paid job could say Statement F because it is a big burden to feed your family, and they could have children as well, so they need to provide more money to feed their family, and will not care what business they are working for.
    Whose perspectives haven’t we considered?
    I think we haven't considered the perspectives of people who work businesses that contribute to climate change, such as miners. Due to climate change, they could lose their jobs, and have to find another one, which can be very difficult.
    Why do people have different opinions about the same thing?
    I think people have different opinions about the same thing because they have different perspectives, and may be affected by the same thing in different ways.

    Step 3:
    Where would you put yourself on the timeline?
    I would put myself between 2021 and 2030 because I think that it is very important to stop climate change, after we have eased out of the Covid-19 pandemic.
    Which opinion is most common in your community? Why?
    The opinion that I have heard, mostly by adults, is the year 2000. I think this is because they think that we should have done things to stop climate change much earlier, so we didn't have to deal with pandemic and climate change all at once.
    What are the main reasons why someone might not support "building back greener?"
    The main reasons why someone might not support "building back greener" is that they might not believe in climate change, or they may think that stopping will negatively affect them.
    How might fake news affect someone's opinion?
    Fake news might affect someone's opinion because if they believe fake news, they may think that climate change is not very urgent. They can be deceived, and if they did believe that climate change was a threat, they may change their minds after they find fake news.
    Which person do you think is least likely to support “building back greener”? What would you say to this person to help change their mind?
    I think that person B is least likely to support "building back greener." This is because they seem to not care about climate change at all, and they don't want anything to do with it. I would show them facts and charts showing the effect of climate change to them, and that could change their mind.
    Who are people most influenced by: experts, friends and family or someone else?
    I think that people are most influenced by experts because they are experienced in their area of work and people trust them more. Experts can be heard all over the world, with people watching the news or going on trusted websites.
    Who is the most reliable?
    I also think that experts are the most reliable because they take time to research things so they can show to people what they have found, and they are normally quite accurate with their statistics.

    Step 4:
    One person's actions can not make a difference to the climate
    I agree with this statement. This is because if only one person does climate friendly things, there will be far more people doing the opposite. Also, everyone will rely on that one person to make a difference. If people work together, we can make a difference much quicker.
    World leaders have more power than the public to “build back greener”
    I disagree with this statement. This is because there are many organisations that are helping to "build back greener." World leaders are only a few people, compared to the public. The more people who want to make a change, the faster we can "build back greener."
    We should “build back greener” even if some people disagree
    I agree with this statement. This is because in the future, people could suffer the consequences of climate change because we acted too late. Even if people disagree, there are still others who agree and can make a difference.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my comment.

    Step 3 / Part tow
    Which three opinions are least likely to support " building back greener " ?
    - Building back greener will be expensive ... but getting the world back on track rafter the pandemic will cost a lot anyway , because there is no strong relationship for Corona with climate change .
    - Global warming docent affect my life so there's no need to build back greener than before , view is wrong because global warming affects everyday life and all climate change .
    - There's been too much change recently , lets just go back to how things were , because it is difficult to return to what it was before .

    - World leaders have more power than the public to the climate :
    I agree , because it is the world leader who determine the policies and decide the plans and strategies related to the climate issue .
    -We should " building back greener " even if some people disagree :
    I agree , because greening the world gives the world affirmatively to all people , even those who do not agree .

    Step4:
    *One person's action cannot make a difference to the climate.
    I disagree with this statement because one person's action can make a difference to the climate. Assuming I am an illegal miner and that I also own the machines used for mining illegally and because my work is destroying water bodies and is also leading to climate change,I can decide to take all the machines and work with it legally and also give the land I was using to farmers to plant trees on it so I am making a change to the climate.
    So therefore, one person's action can make a difference to the climate.
    *World leaders have more power than public to "build back greener.
    I agree with this statement because world leaders can make rules for the public to abide by to build back greener.
    *We should build back greener even if some people disagree.I agree with this statement because when we do not build back greener now,our world will be devastated.

    Everybody knows that people's opinion about building back greener could be affected by where they live because we are all influenced by our upbringing such as our culture ,religion and parental view and to that they don't have the same life style or social background
    Me Joyful_Desert in Tunisia where i live the effects if climate change are clear .
    It's already experiencing the impacts if climate change temperatures have been rising significantly faster than the world average for serval decades , the weather is always hot even in winter .
    In 2018 ,
    Temperatures reached 49,3°c causes the ice flooding .Have you ever feel about it ? Besides building back greener is too much expensive by efficient renovations and landlors have more incentive to spend the money .In addition ,pressures from pests ,weeds and deases are also exepected to increase .
    Climate change will also affect listestock production in multiple ways .

    Step 1:
    In Ghana my country, the effects of climate change are being seen clearly in the seasonal patterns. Ghanaians are suppose to be experiencing rainfall by in the month of April downwards but the amount of sunshine we experience is more than that in the dry season. Secondly, the predictions of weather forecasters in Ghana occur at unexpected periods. They can tell us that there will be a storm maybe today, it won't happen but rather occur at a period not expected.

    My opinion would be different depending on the effects of climate change I am experiencing in my country.

    Step 2:
    Card A: climate activist
    Card B: student
    Card C:climate activist
    Card D:student
    Card E:world leader
    Card F:business owner
    From my view all opinions have been considered.

    People have different opinions about one thing because the effects and the benefits they might be experiencing is different from that of the other.

This helps the progress and growth of the country ... and planting trees and plants and rebuilding reduces infection from dangerous viruses .....
    Will it be rebuilt properly and reduce virus infection?

    We looked at the previous opinions and saw that they are different and from different points of view. When you pondered the time line, I put opinion B in the year 2000, opinion C in 2030, opinion D in 2030, opinion E in 2000 and opinion F in 2060. For me, I put myself in the year 2000, maybe the future is dark, maybe it is bright.
    Whatever is best for the envirment and the climate is best for people too It is the most common opinion in my society, and my evidence for that is that the Council of Ministers in the year 2015, and within the policy of concern for the environment, set the Palestinian Environment Day on the fifth of March annually to highlight issues of the environment and protect it from violations. Environmental protection was adopted in the 2017-2022 National Policy Agenda, which was announced by the Prime Minister in February 2017.
    In Palestine, a number of plans included in the Palestinian strategy approved by the Council of Ministers are related to agriculture, water, waste, wastewater and biodiversity. If implemented, these plans will work to reduce the phenomenon of climate pollution.
    Perhaps the failure of people to support the cause of the greening of the world again is due to several reasons, including the lack of awareness of many of them about the nature of the problem, as the decision-makers in the world and the media did not shed enough light on the issue for ordinary people who obtain their information from these two sides. Secondly, there is the problem of poverty that prevents people from interested in this issue. The case is because they are busy with their life matters. Third: Lack of capabilities and lack of resources. If there is awareness among people, how can implementation be possible without the availability of financial support?
    The media, as we have said, has a great influence, and false rumors have the greatest role in misleading many people, so we find that the person clings to the idea of ​​what he has reached even if it is incorrect and defends it strongly if it is from a source he trusts. People are affected by rumors and not, but rather they transmit them and circulate them among them. Sometimes the influential people promote a certain idea to the general public and hide many facts about them for a specific goal and people, with all naivety, believe and adopt wrong opinions only because it came from people they trust.
    We find that among the six opinions that we discussed and less supportive of the building back greener issue are opinions B, D, F, as the opinion holder focuses on himself and does not care about what is going on around him.
    I think that people are influenced more by friends because friends have the same interests and ideas, so we find that many people prefer to take the opinions of their friends more than their families, and the majority of simple people do not care about the opinions of experts or others because they do not pay attention to global issues.
    When I contemplate this phrase, "One person's actions can not make a difference to the climate", I find myself disagreeing with it. The person himself is a human greenhouse that releases carbon dioxide into the air, not to mention his daily activities, his waste and his uses of various harmful substances, including more than the beneficial and his use of fuel. How could it not affect the climate?
    On the other hand, one person and this person is one of the world leaders who have more power than the peoples for the issue of climate can do a lot. The world leaders are the decision makers and they are the ones who set strategies and force the people to implement them even if they do not like it because they have power and rule.
    I am of the opinion that we should "build back greener" even if some people disagree
    It does not matter that some people do not agree on that. What is important is that we pay attention to this issue. The planet is heading towards a dangerous situation and we must move in the direction of change to create a better tomorrow for the coming generations. Let that tomorrow be bright.
    Should we remain idly by while we see this climate change upset the scales of the Earth?

    Hi 😊
    Can you see climate change where you live? How ?
    I think her in Palestine , where climate change is most cclearly visible.
    For example, in Summer we suffer from extreme heat and high temperatures, and we also suffer from the death of plants, some of animals, and humans, due to the high temperatures.
    In winter we suffer from very low temperatures and an increase in low temperatures, and this also lead to deaths. There is also an example in agriculture, the impact of climate change on agriculture significantly, as the land became destroyed and unfit for agricultural, as well as drought, all of this lead to weak soil and weak soil, led to the lack of cultivation in it, which led to the deterioration of the economy, because agriculture has a source very good income.
    There is no doubt that climate change is a serious catastrophe and its effects are very serious on the environment ,society, and living organisms in general.
    Thanks

    Of course, my answer will be different, if I live in another country, as each has a different climate than others, depending on the terrain, the location of the country, and the course of the four seasons.

    What we are experiencing today, though devastating, is nothing unusual. Pandemics have played a major role in shaping human history throughout the ages. Like the black death (1347) and the Spanish flu (1918), the COVID-19 pandemic brought about fundamental and irreversible changes to our lives and societies. Its socio-economic impacts seem perhaps more pronounced due to global inter-dependence, namely of capitals, goods, services and commodities, as well as human mobility and unprecedented information flows. Besides similarities, all pandemics teach us valuable lessons of adaptation and resilience – a word to the “wise”!The coastal zone of Tunisia is home to two-thirds of the total population. It is a densely populated area where much of the nation’s large cities are. The coastal region has a varied topography and an irregular 1,445 Km of continental coastline extended from the North to the East, and 450km of island coastline.It has played a pivotal role in the countries cultural and economic progress. The diverse natural environment provides a wide range of services across several sectors. Overall, the coast houses more than 80% of economic activities, 90% of the total capacity for tourist accommodation and a large part of the irrigated agriculture in the country (Ministry of Environment and Development Planning 2001).Today, the low-capacity to deal with the impacts of climate change in coastal zones represents the major issue Tunisia is facing. . In fact, it is inhibited by a lack of appropriate climate-sensitized policies and appropriate enabling legislations towards an integrated approach to coastal management.By strengthening and implementing climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction at the local and national level, the project is working to create a more climate-resilient communities. It offers a risk-based approach to strengthen resilience to climate change and provides opportunities to local actors to be an effective agent of change for better risk informed development in the coastal zones.I realized that it's hard to think about a problem like climate change right now . When disaster strikes , it's human nature to worry only about meeting our most immediate needs , especially when the disaster is as bad as COVID_19 .
    If you want to understand the kind of damage that climate change will inflict look at COVID_19 and spead the pain out over a much longer period of time .From here we move to answer the third question that the place affects a person’s opinion about the issue of making the world greener.

    2) The most common opinions, l believe the family , because each family is different from others in their ideas and culture according to the environment in which they live , and according to financial capabilities , customs and traditions .


    3)There are reasons why a person does not support the environment more greener and is because he does not have information, ideas, culture, experience, or experiences, and perhaps no news and advice about this has reached him and he does not have financial capabilities.

    4) Friends , when feced with news , influence others.

    step1
    Hello everyone. Today we will talk about climate change in Palestine and its impact on the environment and human life.
    let's goEveryone knows that the main source of Palestinian income is agriculture
    But with climate change and a little rain these days in Palestine
    It leads to drying out of the soil, which leads to crop failure, and not just like that. The impact of climate change on agriculture affects Palestinian farmers because agriculture is the reason for them to get money, and drought has a negative effect on agriculture, so drought leads to a lack of water and affects agriculture, not just agriculture. Rather on human life, a person without water dies, as the Almighty said, “We made from water every living thing.” Also climate change causes desertification and those who do not know desertification
    Desertification is: the width of land to degradation in arid, semi-arid and arid semi-humid regions
    Desertification leads to loss of plant life and biodiversity / soil lossAnd if you are in another country, for example Morocco: Morocco suffers a lot from climate change, it is located in one of the most arid regions in the world, which leads to degradation of ecosystems, scarcity of water resources, and development. New diseases and forced migration of people
    I hope you enjoyed learning about climate change in Palestine
    Thanks for your time

    Step 2
    I choose C because he's right. I mean, if we don't start right away, when will we start?
    Because if we did not increase the vegetation cover, difficult things would happen that we could not solve, because vegetation cover is very beneficial to human life. If it were not for planting more plants, everyone on the planet would be dead because the trees absorb the polluted air, carbon dioxide and give us clean air, I mean oxygen.

    I believe that one person is not sufficient to make a change, as it is necessary to cooperate and participate in bringing about change in all areas of the crisis for the sake of the climate, as one person makes a change from his point of view and not from the point of view of others.
    Regarding the second statement, I do not agree with it because
    I think that it led the world to look at the green environment in terms of glory and prestige, but the people look at it. In their view, simplicity, belonging, hard work, cooperation and poverty
    That is why I agree with the last statement, we need to return to the green environment, preserving the environment and investing it in the interest of the public that is more beneficial than the private interest.

    F- i just need any job to feed my family. I don't care if it's working for a green business or not -a business owner.

    Step 4

    A. Agree that one person is not enough to slow climate change because climate change need a whole lot of idea , support , and funding.
    B. World leaders have more power than the public to "build back greener". Agree because they have whole lot of resources, power, fund that they can make declarations and everyone will listen and follow.
    C. We should " build back greener even if some people disagree. Agree because creating more awareness as regard to building back greener will get more people involved.

    Question 1
    I think the person least likely to support building back greener is a business owner because the business maybe into factory pollution and illegal mining and other green house gases activities. The problem is that these business owners only want profit but I will tell them that what their doing is affecting the next generation so there is a need to stop.

    All are best options it only depend on where one is. Countries differ in terms of economic level and social issues. So the ones with higher economic status will be able to support green friendly industries,use electric vehicles and all the others. But poor countries like mine will rely on tree planting.

    In my country currently, climate change has occurred in a such that there is difference in the seasons of the country . For instance, it starts raining in the month of April and farmers also plant during this time but it's no longer raining as it use to be even in the month of May. This is why the we depend on the climate alot. We need to build back greener in order for farmers to plant their crops in the right time before prices of farm produce rises. Let's not forget that we live in the earth therefore, if it's not stable our life is in a very great risk if the temperature of the earth rises due to high pollution then there will be more oxygen for humans and other animals to breathe. We need to build back greener; don't say it doesn't affect you so you don't care, it affects a very huge portion of the planet. Don't forget; whatever goes round comes round so it will definitely affect you somehow.

    Step 3

    Question 1: Which person do you think is least likely to support “building back greener”? What would you say to this person to help change their mind?

    In my opinion, the person who is least likely to support “building back greener” is A. He is only talking about the disadvantages of bring the world on track. He is mentioning that building back greener will be expensive neither doing it before and after pandemic, which sounds like he is saying that we don’t have any hope. To change this person’s mind, I will say that it will have more disadvantages if we don’t build back greener. Firstly, if we don’t make the world eco-friendly, there will be no resources for descendants to use. If we go out of resources more faster, we also could not have it in the future. Another reason is because it will cost more and more money to build it up in the future. The faster we start building the world greener, it will cost more less money. to not use up expensive money like what he wants, we should start build back greener as soon as possible.

      I would advice this person to start with the ways which aren't expensive like tree planting. If he plants as many trees as possible within a year then he would have helped a lot on the course of climate change.

    But have we ever wonder what will happen if we don't?
    As youth are we really planning on having families?
    And if yes, will our future families survive through the dangers of climate change as our parents did?

    If you have the answers to these questions then I am sure you will think positivelly on building back greener. We all have to take part especially the youth because the future is ours.

    When one lives in the city they may not know the importance of building back greener because, they have air condition, standing and sealing fans, fridges and all kinds of electrical gadgets in their homes and working places. But in some country side in Ghana, farming is the work most people do for living. As a result of that, people who lives in the country side are more concerned about building back greener. The bad whether is having a negative effect on their farming activities especially those who depends solely on rainfall. Again, the few farmers who uses irrigation are not spared due to rapid drying of the water bodies. Therefore, they are making every effort to build back greener so that they will have enough rains for their farming activities in order to help them to earn a decent income for a comfortable living.

    * Some occupy their minds, starting with thinking about their livelihood in light of widespread unemployment and ending with the civil wars that have been raging in the region for years.

    * Researchers confirm that environmental issues are outside the priorities in Arab society in general due to the civil wars in the region.

    * I believe that such awareness begins with scientific workshops, universities, student and youth unions, and then comes the stage of pressuring governments to adopt this issue.

    It is true that building back greener will be expensive and cost us a lot, but the slower we change things the costs will be higher, so it is good to start the process of change at the present time, so that we don't regret it in the future and the costs are not exorbitant.

    The world is changing rapidly due to climate change. And it is better we start tackling climate change now. Global warming is affecting everybody. Almost everybody is complaining about the bad weather. The people in my community are also feeling the impact of global warming. Therefore, most people are investing in plants. It is common to see people planting hedges around their houses instead of cement walls. Those who loves nature, grow green grass or law inside and around their houses. Some of these plants are edible trees such as oranges, mangoes, etc. Those trees makes the house cool and refreshing, as well as serve as a wind belt.

    The Gaza Strip is the most affected

    Perhaps the areas most affected by climate change in Palestine is the Gaza Strip, where the three wars over it contributed to the high rate of air pollution with toxic gases and dust resulting from the use of bombs and missile missiles, and thus the sector witnessed a change in the climate during the past 15 years with the increase of the annual average. The temperature increased by 1.5%, and this change was accompanied by a decrease in humidity of 1.4%.

    This change had negative consequences that affected water, food, and health, which helped spread diseases, and in this regard, a study conducted by the researcher specializing in health and environmental issues, Yasser Al-Atrash, showed that there is a change in the quality and quantity of water, as the amount of nutrition into the aquifer of water decreased. In addition to a change in its quality, it was noticeable that the concentration of nitrates increased in (86%) of the wells and chloride (76%) at concentrations much higher than the recommended by the World Health Organization, and this change in temperature and the amount of water according to the study led to an increase in cases Diarrhea in the Gaza Strip at a rate of 14%.

    All peoples want to change their ountries for the better, but there are different ways and opinions for each country or person due to thinking and difference. I will give you my opinion on the previous statements of the one who said it and why he thinks like this: -A-
    He could be a president, because he is the one in charge of reforming his country and he is the one who did not take strict measures to protect him, and also he could be a businessman because his business will be affected, and because of money Whoever gets a pound from trade and his relationship with the president will help in his profits to contribute to the reform of the state. -B-
    Ordinary people (the people), they said they do not see the effects closely, but they will see them soon. What are we doing here! We are the beginning of this progress and improvement and awareness of society and the environment.
    -C-
    I think he is an environmental activist, because when he writes on social media, people will read, they will not understand, they will search and learn about “making the world more green.” The world will start to act on this topic. -D-
    Experts, because they know the subject more than anyone who sees that the results in their laboratories and discoveries want hard to return things to normal. -E-
    the leader, is the one who can be the one who said it in his conferences so that people feel that he is good and people will start to develop and improve themselves.
    -F-
    The worker, because he only cares about his sustenance and his day, it does not matter whether it is beneficial to the environment or harmful. These are the opinions received and who may have said them and why, but they did not shed light on the people of the villages. People who live on the simplest things and their opinions about the urban environment move with livestock (camels, horses ...) for their use of firewood for cooking and may pollute the air a little, but they are taken from dead trees. No, nothing is perfect. Opinions differ from each other according to their thinking, their standard of living, their education, “Difference of opinion does not spoil friendliness.”

    Most people are interested of building back greener for various reasons. Last year, the harmattan in Ghana was so severe and unbearable. As a matter of fact, most of the rivers that people depended on as a source of drinking water dried up. This event affected individuals as well as Ghana water works, an institution mandated to supply water to household and companies. To prevent it's occurrence again, the company has taken upon itself to plant trees over or around the banks of their water sources so that they will have enough to supply during dry seasons.

    I see these views as being the least supportive of the cause
    -Global warming doesn't affect my life so there's no need to build back greener ,,
    - I just need any job to feed my family I don't care if it's working for agreen business or not,
    -There's been too much change recently. Let's just go back to how thing were.
    * People are influenced by friends because they spend a lot of time with each other and discuss many matters
    1-yes , For example, if a person does something that leads to a fire, this has an effect on the climate.
    2-Yes, if the leader wants to afforest the country, everyone will contribute to that and it may affect the neighboring country.
    3-Yes, because if people realize its importance and danger, there will be no rejection from anyone.

    Yes l agree to this comment but l think it won't be that expensive in my country. In Ghana, we have fertile soil to plant trees and the most important thing to do is to stop building houses in water log areas and also practice afforestation and avoid deforestation, that is the easiest way to build back greener.

    I think that one person is not enough to confront climate change because this issue needs international cooperation and intensification, but I do not agree with the idea that leaders have more power than the public because leaders without the public can do nothing, and strength is not sufficient unless there is a link and integration between the human effort For example, money does not achieve anything without the rational achievements of human beings. That is why it is agreed that we must return to the green environment even with the presence of opponents, because today they are opponents, and tomorrow they support this. My question: How can we persuade opponents to return to the environment without violence?

    Some part of the country are becoming warmer and warmer now and then. This situation is gradually drawing people attention to climate change, thus, building back greener.
    The affected areas might be more interested in building back greener compared to areas in Ghana that are not experiencing the same. For instance, northern part of Ghana is getting drier and drier by the day. Government build dams for them. They use it for irrigation and serve as a drinking water. This intervention is not helping because of the climate change. Those northern will be more interested in saving their dams by planting trees than those at the forest zone of Ghana.

    This is what I will like to talk about. In many places the climate change is having much effects on the farmers and sachet water producers so they want to build back greener. Some of the business men and women do not care much about building back greener. They don't care about it because they think that building back greener is waste of time, and it will not bring any income or money to them. They felt that they can use that same time to work and earn more money to feed themselves and their families some of them don't care how their action will affect others. See the local farmer is already felling the impact of climate change. Therefore, his or her attitude toward building back greener will be positive.

    Ghana is one of the largest producer of cocoa in the world. In fact, the economy of the country depends on cocoa.
    Of late the climate change is really affecting cocoa production in the country. To provide solution to the problem, farmers in cocoa sector are giving seedlings of trees free of charge to plant on the land on which the cocoa trees are grown. The ordinary trees to provide shade to the cocoa trees, so that they will not die. In a way, this is helping to build back greener.

    I think the business owner especially factories that are not environmentally friendly should take keen interest in building back greener because their activities are negatively affecting the climate. Today, water bodies and air are being polluted because of the discharge from some factories. Hence, they should find a nice way of reducing pollution if not eliminated completely to save our mother earth from damaging.
    They should note that the earth is not for them alone but then it is for the future generation as well.

    In my opinion, I put the opinion:
    A between 2021 and 2030 in the middle because the world has now begun to understand the issue and search for solutions.
    B: in the middle of 2020 and 2021,
    C:at the beginning of the year 2021 with the advent of the award and the development of bad effects starting with the question and inquiry,
    D: with the beginning of exploring the harmful effects of change Climate.
    E: at all times and in all times, even before climate change is known. We are environmentally friendly, but there are things we are destined to do without.
    F: will remain forever, because there are only people who care about their own interest who do not think how much they will contribute to the death of innocent people from their benefit.
    Why do people not support the issue of green climate?
    Because of the insufficient awareness received, they are accustomed to their livelihood, and the poverty and singing that most people live. How can a person stop working in the factories that bring him his daily sustenance!
    Fake news affects people with an effect faster than the real one. Usually, false news comes on the mood of the person not only believing it, but searching for it and publishing it. The Internet and social media have helped the spread of false news, where what researchers found was frightening, as false news travels farther, faster, deeper and wider than Truth in each category of information is multiplied many times over. The actual tweets took six times the time to distribute on Twitter to 1,500 people. Overall, lies in the sample were 70% more likely to be retweeted than true ones.

    For me the opinions that are less supportive of making the world greener are B: The reason is ignorance and lack of knowledge, but it will affect soon F. Because it will affect the environment negatively. Who are people usually affected by? People are affected by the people they trust, such as family. For me, I am influenced by experts and family, how? I hear the news and instructions from the experts, but I go to my father to explain to me more and tell me more about the subject, why should I? Because I feel that my father is an intellectual who has life experience, even though he does not have a position in the higher government, but he knows and analyzes political, economic, matters, some people trust social media, but they are not always guaranteed. For me, the actions of one person can make a difference in the climate by means of Its defamation and media to people, even if it is famous, people are affected by it and they can discuss the issue until it reaches the largest number of people, I agree that one person makes a change. I agree that world leaders have the greatest power because they are the ones in control and the officials and those who know what the state needs and what it lacks. We have to make the world greener, even if some people do not agree, because if you wait for people to agree, the earth will be destroyed and we will become in the year 2050, we do what we have to advise them and answer their queries and start implementing directly and when they see the positive effects and development they will be convinced.

    Palestine lives in a state of climatic injustice, as it is one of the countries in the world with the least emissions of greenhouse gases, while we find it one of the regions most affected by the resulting global warming. Emissions. Our region is also struggling to adapt to these climate changes because it is stuck in major problems, including poverty, lack of democracy, bribery, weak economic growth and human development, and fossil fuel subsidies send a different signal that encourages waste and discourages low carbon. By phasing out subsidies on harmful fossil fuels, countries can reallocate their resources to the most effective and needy areas, including targeted support for the poor.

    About $ 550 billion was earmarked to subsidize fossil fuels worldwide in 2013, thus cutting a large proportion of some countries' GDP to artificially lower energy prices. However, Kim said: "The evidence shows that fossil fuel subsidies do not protect the poor at all." Studies show that the richest 20 percent of the population get six times the benefits from fossil fuel subsidies than the poorest 20 percent.

    Reforming subsidies is not an easy process at all, but very difficult. Citizens often do not realize the true cost of energy, and increased support for the poor must begin with the phasing out of subsidies. The World Bank is providing support for fossil fuel subsidy reform through a $ 20 million fund that will help countries design and implement subsidy reform programs and accompanying social protection systems. I hope this applies to all countries, and a happy life 😉.

    Step 1
    1- Yes, it is possible, because the phenomenon of climate change in Palestine has significant effects that have clearly emerged during the past years. These phenomena were represented by desertification, an increase in the number of droughts and soil degradation, and climate change led to a rise in the minimum and maximum temperatures in the summer and their decrease in the winter, and the phenomenon of global warming negatively affected On the sectors of water, health, agriculture and food security.
    2- My country, Palestine, is characterized by great climate diversity, as the climate in mountainous areas differs from coastal areas and desert areas, as this climate diversity leads to the diversity of the amount of plants and the amount of water.
    3- A place has a great influence on people's opinion, as its opinion stems from climatic conditions
    For this place, for example, climate change in the Siberian region is expected to improve food production. On the other hand, developing countries renew people's opinions about them, as opinions call for the necessity of saving resources due to the great climate changes.

    Step 2
    1- Opinion A: A world leader.
    2- Opinion B: a business owner.
    3- Opinion A: A world leader.
    4- Opinion D: A world leader.
    5- Opinion E: Climate Activist.
    6- Opinion F: business owner.
    2- B opinion because it says that global warming does not affect my life and there is no need to rebuild it greener, and this is a wrong opinion because global warming has many risks to humans.
    F opinion, because he is only interested in securing a job to feed his family and is not concerned with the danger that occurs to the environment, even if he looks closely, knowing that climate changes pose a greater risk than food shortages.
    3- People's opinions on a certain topic differ according to his personal interest. If the circumstances are appropriate for his interest, he will speak about it positively, but if it conflicts with his interests and actions, he will oppose it and fight it vigorously.

    Step 3
    1- I put myself in the table with opinion D because it says there have been many changes that have taken place.
    Let us return things as they were in the past, and this opinion is very common in my country, Palestine, where many citizens demand to return things to what they were in the past, for life was build back greener, simplicity and beauty.
    2- There are many reasons that prevent people from building back greener, including: Indifference: As there are many opinions that say that she is not interested in building back greener as much as she is interested in her personal life. Unwillingness to pay and spend money for a building back greener.
    Lack of complete awareness of the risks of climate change and failure to build back greener.
    * Interest in commercial projects and building factories, so they resort to cutting trees and making use of agricultural lands for that.
    3- The effect of rumors on the opinions of others depends on many things, including:
    * The type of these rumors are they positive or negative, and do they call for a lack of interest in that.
    * Also according to the source from which these rumors originate, if he is a reliable source, then people will believe and support him.
    * It also depends on the person from whom these rumors are issued. If he is responsible in society, many will take his words.
    4- The opinion of F is less likely to support a building back greener as he prefers his personal interest over the public interest and showed that he is not interested in the building back greener, but rather cares about feeding his family even though the building back greener automatically will work to provide decent livelihoods and will make him safer. And his family.
    5- In a person's opinion, the family is the most influential because the family has an influence on people's decisions and attitudes and through providing advice on a topic.
    6- I think that the experts are the most honest because they speak with all credibility and transparency, And because they approach the topics scientifically and with proven facts, not personally.

    Step 4
    1- Disagree, because every action a person takes, even if it is simple, has an impact on the climate, whether negative or positive.
    2- I agree, because world leaders possess the financial power and also have the power to enforce and enforce laws.
    3- I agree, because building back greener is an absolute necessity and whisper.

    How might fake news affect someone's opinion?
    News and media are a big reason and main factor that affects someone's opinions, whether they are fake or real, there are some people who believe all news, even fake ones without thinking deeply about it or validate it.
    Fake news that talks about climate change has a clear effect on people's opinions of a building back greener, previously this fake news was published, "Climate change is a phenomenon that has happened before and is a routine that happens in a natural cycle." I think this influenced a lot of people's opinions about a building back greener, and they came to believe that climate change a natural phenomenon that doesn't not deserve all this attention.

    Step 1
    Of course, I can see the effects of climate change in my country of Palestine, which has a temperate climate where in the winter it is cold and in the summer it is hot and dry. In my opinion, the climate of my country of Palestine is appropriate and very good and does not affect negatively but positively on the level of agriculture in Palestine because Palestine is a country known for agriculture due to the moderate and appropriate climate and sometimes negatively, and this happens more in the summer when the temperature rises a lot, so it is possible to get heat stroke.
    This is about my experience In the climate of my country of Palestine In my opinion, it is possible that the place in which a person lives may influence his opinion of "rebuilding life greener". If he feels that the place in which he lives is appropriate and safe and he loves the place then that makes one not think about it, but in the age in which we live we must think In huge ways to bring life back greener

    In my country Uganda, the impact of climate change has greatly affected us. During the lockdown, we saw a rise in the water level due to heavy rainfall. It rose to a height of 13.42 meters which was the highest ever recorded since 1964. This displaced so many people in my country leaving them homeless. The rising water levels also submerged some parts of the islands on Lake Victoria hence some industrial sites and accommodation facilities like hotels near the lake shut down. Which is quite devastating to the tourism sectors because tourists have limited accommodation sites.

    I live in Gaza in Palestine. In Palestine the summer is as hot as a hot oven. However, each year becomes hotter and the sun fries us . But it does not only affect us . but also wild life fires .The fire in Haifa was caused by the heat . Ten thousand of trees were lost . But when trees lost lots of animals lost their home . One example is the bird . Lots of bird such as the eagle and the owl .Another reason is that the water evaporates when the heat hits it .That is exactly what happened with The Dead Sea .The sun also affects agriculture . It effects food and the plants .However my opinion will change because the climate changes . If I go up beyond the equator the climate will changes because we are coming closer to the north pole. Take Alaska for example. The heat has cosset the ice to melt which caused the ocean to rise.
    However, some people might not think that could be a problem. In Sudan, they do not have a lot of water. So them thinking that if the ocean rises that would mean more water which would help them with agriculture and their thirst. But in reality, it causes lots of floods which takes lives of people, homes, land, and farm land. That would cost them a lot of food and a lot of people will die from hunger.

    In Ghana, people all over the country has different opinions on "building back greener.Some support the idea orther's do not due to money and some other factors.This is all a result of each and everyone's different environment in which they live.
    In Ghana,those living near the rivers Birim, Densu and Ayensu,report of having I clean waters due to the activities of illegal mining locally known as 'galamsey'.*n 5his case those living near the rivers experience th harmful effects of climate change whiles those polluting the waterdo not.When one of the 'galamsey' operators was interviewed,he said they did not any job to do and 'galamsey' is giving them a fat income.These 'galamsey' operators do not see the harm they are causing to the people and the environment as whole.The government has started taking measures to control illegal mining in the country.

    In my country Ghana climate change have affected as so dearly has also affected our seasonal patterns and I say planting of more trees in Ghana here will really help reduce the effect of climate change .
    And this activity can be done without the help of the government.

    Step 3:
    Q1; I believe it would be a student. What I would tell him/her would be; he/her can start BUILDING BACK GREENER(B.B.G) by himself/herself without government's help. BBG may cost but it worth saving a lot . Why do I say this , because in building back greener you are saving yourself from drought and many other effects of climate change.
    Q2; From my perspective it would be a business owner, why him? because from the statement he said to do any job to feed his family which is influence from the family.
    Q3; The climate activist would be the most reliable.

    Step 4:
    Q1; Disagree because if one begins to plant, it may encourage others to begin planting as well which makes a big difference.
    Q2; Agree (only if they have that mindset ) because they can at least purchase lands which could be reserved as forests.
    Q3;Agree because they will also benefit from building back greener so work must go on.

    On the timeline I have started building back greener -2021

    the issue of climate change in Palestine has become of great importance as a result of the rapid changes in the Palestinian climate, as global warming is the cause of many of the negative effects that have affected large sectors of Palestinian life, such as water, agriculture , health, food security and others. The State of Palestine is considered to have a limited impact on the issue of climate change, but it is located within the eastern Mediterranean region most affected by climate change, according to the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for the year 2014. Percentage of climate pollution in Palestine according to the Quality and Environment Authority is less than 1% compared to other countries, and the climate emissions per capita in Palestine are very low, as it was estimated at 0.8 tons of carbon dioxide emissions that cause global warming , compared to 7.5 tons. Per capita globally. The new climate phenomena taking place in the Palestinian territories have a clear impact that is directly linked to a global problem that changes the course of the globe and threatens its security in a number of vital sectors. Among the effects of climate change was the wave of fires that struck Haifa, Jerusalem and other cities, according to the poll conducted by the (prospects for environment and development) magazine that 89% of those surveyed admit that the cause is climate change. As well as the phenomenon of desertification, increasing rates of drought, soil degradation and a decrease in the level of rain, which has decreased by 10% and is expected to decrease to 20% by the year 2050. has affected the change in the quality and quantity of water in the groundwater, and the increase in nitrate content in 86% of wells and chloride by 76%. At a concentration much higher than recommended by the World Health Organization, due to the impact of the recharge amount for the aquifers.
    Also, the high rates of the minimum and maximum temperatures in the summer, their decrease in the winter, the increase in the number of very hot summer days, severe heat waves and extreme weather conditions, and this is what weather experts do not guarantee in the Mediterranean climate, which is known for its moderate and pleasant climate.
    All these phenomena directly threaten agricultural production. Experts expect that the Jordan River will completely dry up at the end of the current century, as well as abandoning agriculture and the spread of diseases. Especially in the Gaza Strip, which suffers from the highest population density in the world.
    We move to answer the second question. If I live in another different country, my answer will definitely differ. Let us assume that I live in North Africa or in tropical regions in which what these areas suffer is different from what the eastern Mediterranean regions suffer, some of which are afflicted by floods and torrents, some of which are afflicted by this drought in addition to Extreme poverty The weakness of the capabilities in others, and the solutions that suit these areas may not suit the region in which I live. Each region has its own geographical nature, capabilities and material capabilities that affect either negatively or positively the climate changes in it.
    From here we move to answer the third question that the place affects a person’s opinion about the issue of making the world greener. Towards global matters and issues.

    my first question is to Nada, how do you think about protecting the environment? Most people do not care for that, since they are creating chaos everywhere. I see that we all seek to protect the environment and those who refuse are subject to punishment from the government. My second question is to Chris and Najma, I think it is better for us all to unite to make our planet better. I think that humans are the reason for all this, so how can we help the world in building what we have broken. My third question to Rita. I always wanted a world without waste, but it's hard to get rid of it. Do you have a plan to get rid of it so we can help

    One persons action cannot make a difference to climate change

    One person action cannot make a difference to climate because the rapid increasment of the world population will not make a difference to climate change. This is said by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (N.A.S.A) that it is likely that even if we stop emitting green house gases today, climate change will continue to happen for at least several more decades. This is because it will take a while for the planet to respond. This is why I think that one persons action cannot make a difference to climate change.
    Thank you!

    In the first sentence, I agree with the opinion because no one can save the world alone, so they must be a group in order to be able to think to solve this problem, and also to the Palestinian proverb saying that it is one hand that does not clap. The problem is also those who have the money, equipment, and inventions to solve this problem, and also if the people or a small group of people solve this problem they cannot solve it because they do not have sufficient materials to support them and also if the people's leaders did not agree to that, they could not do anything
    I agree with the following statement because we must solve it because it may cause us harm in the future, and I think that the people who will refuse to solve this problem are factory owners because they will lose their wealth.And they will depend on manpower instead of the machines that cause pollution, and also that will consume a lot of time, effort and money.

    •The first statement: I do not agree on this, because every person has a role towards his environment, so if every person burns his waste and gets his own car, this results in pollution in the environment, and ozone volatility will increase, and climate changes will result.
    •The second sentence: I do not agree. Because every person is responsible for rebuilding the green environment according to his capabilities, whether he is from a public or a leader.
    •Third sentence: I agree. Because rebuilding the green environment is in the interest of the present and future generations, and our protection from diseases and epidemics. If the higher generation does not realize it yet, then I am sure that they will realize that someday.

    For me the opinions that are less supportive of making the world greener are B: The reason is ignorance and lack of knowledge, but it will affect soon F. Because it will affect the environment negatively. Who are people usually affected by? People are affected by the people they trust, such as family. For me, l am influenced by experts and family, how? l hear the news and instructions from the experts,but l go to my father to explain to me more and tell me more about the subject, why should l ? Because I feel that my father is an intellectual who has life experiences, even though he does not have a position in the higher government, but he knows and analyzes political, economic, matters, some people trust social media, but they are not always guaranteed. For me, the actions of one person can make a difference in the climate by means of lts defamation and media to people, even if it is famous, people are affected by it and they can disc the issue until it reaches the largest number of people, l agree that one person makes a change. l agree that world leaders have the greatest power because they are the ones in control and the officials and those who know what the state needs and what it lacks. We have to make the world greener, even if some people do not agree, because if you wait for people to agree, the earth become in the year 2050, we do what we have to advise them and answer their queries and start implementing directly and development they will be convinced.

    Step 1:
    A) Can you see the effects of climate change where you live? How?
    Answer: The effects of climate change are very evident in Jamaica. For example, global warning has caused higher daily temperatures which result in fires on our main mountain range, especially in the summer months. There is also less rainfall which affects the agricultural industry and the food security of my country’s citizens.
    B) If you lived in a country with a different climate, how would your answer be different?
    Answer: Climate change is affecting every country in the world. While the effects may be different in another country. For example, longer winters or a longer rainy season, there is still change overtime in the climatic conditions of every country.
    C) How could where someone lives affect their opinion about “building back greener”?
    Answer: One’s opinion about “building back greener”, could be affected by where they live. Firstly, the effects of climate change on the respective country could be significant. Secondly, the awareness of the government and people of the country would impact their perceived need to build back greener. Thirdly, the available financial resources of the country to be used to build back greener would be a factor. Fourthly, the competing expenses for which those resources could be used would also be a major factor. All four factors could affect the opinion of someone in relation to building back green.

    Step 2:
    A) For each opinion, decide who might say the statement.
    Answer: 1. World leader, 2. Average citizen, 3. Climate activist, 4. Average citizen, 5. Climate activist, 6. Average citizen.
    B) Whose perspectives haven’t we considered?
    Answer: You have not considered manufacturers, farmers or people who work in the Primary Industry, who depend on replenishing supplies of raw materials.
    C) Why do people have different opinions about the same thing?
    Answer: Different people experience different problems in different ways. They are influenced by their personal experiences and their peer groups’ view on the matter.

    Step 3:
    Part 2;
    Answer: A-2021, B-Never, C-2021, D-2030, E-2025, F-2060
    A) Which person do you think is least likely to support “building back greener”? What would you say to this person to help change their mind?
    Answer: Opinion B cares least about the problem. I would inform the person on how their lives are impacted by climate change for example: declining food supplies and levels of fresh water. I would also inform them of how their lives will be bettered by “building back greener”.
    B) Who are people most influenced by?
    Answer: People are most influenced by people whom they see as credible sources on the topic. In certain socio-economic groups, it is the family who is the most credible source, while in others, it is the experts who are the most credible source.
    C) Who is the most reliable?
    Answer: The experts are the most reliable.

    Part 3;
    A) Where would you put yourself on the timeline? Answer: 2025.
    B) Which opinion is most common in your community? Why?
    Answer: Opinion A, because we live in a third world country with very evident signs of climate change. Both the government and people are aware that the issue needs urgent attention.
    C) What are the main reasons why someone might not support “building back greener”.
    Answer: 1: They are not convinced that climate change affects them personally. 2: The financial resources to address the problem are not readily available. 3. A lot of effort will have to be put out to “build back greener”.

    Step 4:
    Read the statements below, one at a time. Do you agree or disagree with each statement? Can you say why?
    A) I disagree, as everyone has an impact on climate change and the environment.
    B) I disagree, as without the public’s help, the world leaders will be powerless to effect any change.
    C) I agree, as whether people agree with us or not, “building back greener” will ensure the sustainability of human interactions with the environment.

    Climate change is one of Ghana's greatest worry aside the pandemic.Day in ,day out,the effects of climate change are becoming evident and causing great havoc in villages ,towns and the country as a whole.

    Now, we are experiencing effects of climate change such as;
    1.Weather forecast predictions occurring at unexpected periods.Weather predictions have gone wrong due to our activities which are dangerous for our ozone layer.
    2.Change in seasonal patterns.In my country,Ghana ,there are only two seasons which are; the dry and wet seasons.These seasons normally have usually routine or pattern in which they go through but nowadays,there is a change in all these which has confusion in the minds of the citizens.

    3.Climate change has affected Ghana's budget.This is so because the country was living peacefully without any cause for alarm but suddenly,due to our alarming activities,climate change attacked us .Due to this,the government of Ghana,decided to make a turn of events by trying to solve the problem which requires the use of money from the country's treasure hence increasing the country's expenditure.

    All theses has caused a drastic change in my country.My country is no different from other countries on the African continent.Most African countries are working tirelessly to solve the same problem which is affecting us .Indeed,climate change has affected and changed the world.

    But,the environment in which one finds himself or herself can change their opinions about climate change.The reason is a person's view gets influenced by either business or close relations.If the close relations of a person try to make a positive impact ,a person may get influenced and would like to join in the process as well a person's business might a great impact on an individual.If something may help a person in business,the person will make it a point to also try it and get results.

    In my country,the media , government and other stakeholders have the upper hand on most issues ,so I would like to encourage all and sundry to practice the measures to "build back greener " to make the world a safe place again.To conclude ,I would like to pose a question to my fellow students in this club,"Why can't the youth who have knowledge of the effects of climate change ,educate ourselves and the young ones who do not have any idea about what is going on,for them to have a fair knowledge of what is going on and how to fight against it

        "Once upon a time,the world was peaceful and the perfect place to live.The various seasons of different parts of the world were occurring within their usual periods not until the activities of man changed the whole world.Man started practicing deforestation,burning of bushes and so on which accounts to the depletion of the ozone layer.This is the story of the world today which has brought global warming and other effects to the world.So,kids ,you are the next generation to protect the world against the villain "climate change ",just like Superman."

        Children are naive and also like to hear stories because they find it interesting to hear.They have their hearts in stories.Aristotle once said "educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all."So my idea is that we should try to make it story so as to inculcate the habit of "building back greener" in them because they are our future generation and they will grow to make the world green again.

        So can we all make it a point to help the world and the future generation by inculcating this habit in them?

    People's opinions about climate change differ and whether we need to do any efforts to address that depending on where he lives and his tangible vision of these ill effects.
    We have in Palestine that effect is the lack of water levels that lead to drought one day, for example, a farmer will feel the scale of the disaster more than a businessman, for example, it is true that both depend on water in his life, but in varying proportions, as the farmer's income depends on it.
    In other regions, such as the North and Southwest Pacific and Indian Oceans, people there are aware of the great impact of climate change because they have been exposed to hurricanes of magnitude 4 (with wind speeds ranging between 210 and 249 km per hour) and fifth degree (in which wind speeds reach more than 249 Km per hour), as well as the inhabitants of the eastern regions of North and South America, where large amounts of rain fall, while some other parts of the globe have become drier as rainfall has decreased in the Sahel, the Mediterranean region, and southern Africa.
    The biggest example that we can see of climate change is Lake Chad, which was the sixth largest lake in the world, but it became smaller, as it shrank to a tenth of its size, and this shows the decrease in the rate of precipitation, and the increase in agricultural irrigation due to the continuous drought.
    In the end, I believe that ignorance is the reason for the difference of opinion. Because many do not have enough information about the climate change crisis and its effects, and how it can be dealt with,
    Areas where fires and hurricanes are frequent, the state publishes this on the various media, and people ask about the causes, and from here begins awareness of what is happening and take the necessary measures because they are large and visible disasters.
    As for other countries, there is no awareness of this, so their citizens do not take any measures.
    Therefore, people's opinions differ from one region to another

        I think that the media in all its forms are the audible voice, we can exploit the electronic communication sites for that, for example
        When holding meetings and agreements in order to set goals to reduce emissions and slow climate change - such as the Paris Agreement of 2015 - they must receive a wide media echo everywhere, so that a person opens television, radio, Facebook, YouTube, .. .etc.
        It even occurred to me to provide animated videos for children so that they learn and become aware of it from an early age.
        And I think that this issue has priority for students to study in schools because if things become clear to them, they will work to preserve the environment and slow climate change, and they will think of methods, alternatives and inventions, that this will build a conscious, educated, innovative generation that strives for survival.
        And what about murals and awareness leaflets when they are intense and periodical as well, I see that if these ideas become reality, they will really help ...
        Unfortunately, I believe that the current messages do not reach the people because they are temporary and short and do not receive wide media coverage، And because it is purely scientific, what if it started providing awareness in the form of a comedy, action, drama and so on ..

    Views differ, really, but the bad thing is that a person thinks only in his own interest, and does not think about the public interest
    We will not face climate change individually, but everyone will be exposed to dire consequences
    So I do not agree with Person F, and she is the least likely to support "rebuilding more with respect to the environment."
    I think what I will tell this person is that you are thinking today of getting a job without caring whether it harms the environment or not, if you got it today and caused that damage, the climate that you pollute will not leave you to live tomorrow
    And I advise you to join our club to realize what is going on around you and to know what we are facing from a real danger that makes you think if you can save the world and work for a greener building

    Illiteracy rate at the area where someone lives can affect their opinion on climate change. For instance in the Northern region of Ghana, it has the lowest school attendance in the country and a low literacy rate. Opinions of people living among these communities about "building back greener" will surely differ from the opinions of people living elsewhere.

    When one stays at a forest and
    mountainous zone since there is frequent rainfall at this areas, it makes the place cool and very comfortable to stay .Due to the frequent rainfall at this areas, the amount of sunshine is low and therefore affects ones opinion on building back greener.

    Also when one stays around highway areas ,since the number of vehicles that passes there are many the rate at which fumes from vehicles is released becomes very high this deplete the ozone layer quickly therefore causing direct sunshine to that particular area.

    Ones opinion about building back greener is affected if one stays at industrial zones.This is due to the harmful gases released into the atmosphere by industries.

    Climate change is a serious problem that we have been suffering from for a long time, but i think these time are the most suitable to take actual steps to solve this problem, climate change has a dangerous impact on the all fields. But in my country, I think that farming and agriculture is highly affected by climate change, farmers suffer more as climate change consequences represented in high temperatures and declining rain amounts in my area will affect their crops badly, I believe that it's the responsibility of all the community to save the environment from the bad effects of climate change. The one should start with himself to be a good model for the whole community. Covernments alone cannot solve the problem.

    Building back greener is one of the major duties of everyone, both the young and the old.it is possible for where one lives to influence one's opinion or one's effort in building back greener. We can't expect a person living near a forest to put in as much effort as a person living near the desert. For everyone in the world to be on the same page about building back greener, we must use EDUCATION as a tool. Through education,everyone will know the do's and don't s of the society about climate change.With education, people will know how to tackle the problem caused by human activities that brought about the effects of climate change. Thank you.

    If you look at F,it seems she may be in poverty and not have a job and therefore she finds her financial sustainability more important than climate change.For someone who doesn't have a job and needs to look after he family,climate change isn't one of their priorities.However,if you look at someone like C,who seems to want to change our world now,maybe because they are in good health and have a job.It could be an environmental activist or a student saying this because according to science,we only have 9 years left before climate change goes haywire.C would probably start now.It really does just depend on where you are financially and what age you are.To an eight year old,they wouldn't understand this,to a grown man or woman,they would be more or less concerned about it.If you look at D,she seems to be a bit scared for change,maybe because COVID-19 has affected her badly so maybe it's also to do with emotions which shows it is different for different people.

    In London, there’s less snow every winter and when it rains, it rains a lot, causing local flooding; there could be more storms as well. New diseases might spread because the climate is warmer, for example, before we had very few mosquitos, but now we have many more because it’s warmer.
    Did you know, in hot countries, such as Africa, there’s a disease called Malaria, it is spread by mosquitoes and a single mosquito bite is all it takes for someone to get infected with malaria. For most people, malaria causes a fever and feels a lot like getting the flu, or Covid. However it’s still a deadly disease.

    If we don’t act now, the whole world will suffer by these many effects, including diseases.

    If I lived in Plasteine, the effects of climate change might be: They used to have rain seasons in February, but nowadays, rain seasons come in April, two months later, and high temperatures keep on persisting especially at night and heavy rains with storms which end up destroying crops and other important things such as houses, buildings, factories, trees and forests.

    Climate change varies from one region to another, depending on if that country uses fossil fuels, and natural factors also differ from one region to another, so some regions are affected by climate change more than others; so people's opinions differ about building back greener. Human opinions depend on what they hear, see and read, for example, in our past issue: ‘Infodemics to pandemics’ we learnt that most people’s opinions can easily be persuaded to believe something that isn’t true, especially if they hear or read it on the news, or if it’s from someone they trust or know.

    I can see that the land is dry, barren, with no green, and colors tinged with misery in every respect
    I see the trees dry and the land is barren, lacking water, and the crops are like land for the dead not for the life.
    The globe is in ferocious confrontation with that monster that threatens it. Will the earth survival?

    So i can see the complete destruction that would befall the earth in the near future due to high temperatures and global warming. This will make the shape of the earth completely similar to the shape of that image. Therefore, my choice for this explanation is that as the temperature increases, plants will die, green and oxygen will decrease, and thus the economy will be destroyed and countries will collapse as long as it lasts. The decision-makers do not move a finger on this issue, so there is a need for a great revolution against what is happening on the ground and against the causes of global warming to create a clean environment, greener and brighter.

    For step 1, in my country, climate change has been experienced in a way that there have been floods in districts like Kabarole and Kasese when we are supposed to be experiencing hot temperatures around May. People in areas with good climate don't mind about climate change as much as those where the climate is degrading. Also people whose jobs cause climate change like charcoal burning are less concerned about climate change than other people.

    A: 2030
    B: Never
    C: 2021
    D: 2060
    E: 2000
    F: Never
    I would myself in the year 2000 because change in weather patterns has been drastic in Uganda people are having trouble navigating roads and even have to be half-submerged in water in order to cross roads due to floods unfortunately most people in my community may never think of building greener due to ignorance and their livelihoods depending on jobs that cause destruction to the environment and may cause one not to support building back greener.

    Person B is least likely to support building back greener. I would show this person how global warming can affect their life. People are most influenced by their friends because they can relate and communicate well with each other unlike with other people and experts are the most reliable in a way that they conduct research on different aspects keenly unlike the rest who can spread rumours.

    For step 4, I disagree with statement one one person's actions can cause others to follow suit and can create a big impact. I agree with statement 2 though world leaders can create laws that can better climate like everyone person must plant 10 trees a year while the public not everyone may be interested in building greener. I highly agree with statement 3, even if people try to hold us back we must continue to build back greener to save the future before it is too late although we should try to bring those people aboard.

    Step 1
    •I reside in zimbabwe and climate change has greatly affected our weather patterns. Rains have grown so heavy that flooding has become prominent along with cyclones that have destroyed a lot of homesteads.

    •If i were at a different country maybe i would be talking about flash freezes such as the one that occured in America.

    •I think right now we all have seen the devastating effects of climate change hence we unanimously agree about building back greener hence our opinions are not that much different but centre about one goal

    Ain draham is a small town in the northwest of my country it is perched between two mountains it has a generous nature and sublime mountainous landscapes which make it a dream destination during the winter season it is covered with snow and becomes very attractive for tourists but due to global warming the winter season has become very difficult due to the very abandoned snowfall blocking the roads. The inhabitants are affected by the change, the trucks supplying gas for heating can no longer reach the city, running water freezes in the pipes and the cut of electricity and very running. This paradise has become hell for its poor inhabitants

    Where we live doesn't really affect our opinion about building back greener because education makes us understand that we need to afforest to keep living and even traditionally we're also taught to replace most plants we destroy cos of food or something. So everybody knows we need plants to survive.
    If we talk about climate too...everywhere is becoming hot even those at the cold regions of the earth are experiencing some changes in the weather...we might not be able to replace our green lands due to mining and industrial activities and places with deserts...that will be only thing making it difficult to make the earth greener

    The impacts of climate change include warming temperatures, changes in precipitation, increases in the frequency or intensity of some extreme weather events, and rising sea levels. These impacts threaten our health by affecting the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the weather we experience.
    Step 1: The climate changes in Pakistan is caused by green house gases. The climate is arid in Pakistan,the summers are too hot and winters are too cold. The causes of climate change in Pakistan are heat waves, ice melting ,floods and droughts. Heat waves appear during day time in months of May ,June and July. There is bearable

There is unbearable temperature in areas of balochistan.
    2: if I lived in a country with droughts the people might die with hunger, their life would be miserable in contrast where it rains a lot flooding may be another threat. So different people living with different climates of course has a different opinion.
    3: In my opinion the country with more money will support building back greener but a country with less money won't think about building back greener. There is no knowledge of improving in building back greener. Awareness should be created among people so they may support building back greener .

    Step 2: A is world leader, B is a self centered person, C is climate activist, D is a serious person, E is a social worker, F is a person who don't cares about building back greener.
    2: I think the perspectives of students, organisations and business owners are not considered.
    3:The people think in their own way and they think with different angles so their opinions are change.
    Step 3:
    A:2030
    B:never
    C:2021
    D:2060
    E:2000
    F:never
    2:I will put myself in 2021 .
    -F and B are most common. Most of the people think that it's not much compulsory to build back greener.
    -Some reasons are lack of knowledge, careless behaviour to environment and lack of money in people.
    -Fake news can change persons opinion by manipulating implicit thinking and emotions.
    3:F and B are self centered people, and the people who don't care for environment are least likely to support it. I will convince him to tell the problems we will face in future and tell them about the benefits of building back greener.
    -E and A are people who are influenced by friends, experts, and family.
    -I think people who think positive are more reliable as they help you to think positive and these positive thinkers can be in your family and friends.
    Step 4:
    -No I disagree with this statement because one person can also make a change.
    -I disagree with this statement because not only the world leaders have power but also public opinions are also considered.
    -yes I agree with this statement because we should do best for environment even if some people are not agree to it.

    STEP 1 : I have seen a lot of climate change in my city.I have seen an increase in smog in the city because it is very dangerous for our body.I have also seen heavy rains in the past.If i lived in a different country my answer would be different as the country will have its own climate and location.
    STEP2: opinion A will be said by a PrimeMinister or by a President.Opinion B will be said by normal person.Opinion C will be said by a Climate Activist.Opinion D will be said by a elder person above 80 years.Opinion E will be said by a SportsMan.Opinion F will be by a Worker .
    STEP3:I will put myself on 2000.It taking up money and hard for someone.

    Step 1
    In my country, Palestine, perhaps drought or high temperatures, often the change may be noticeable, and perhaps if I live in another country such as Canada or London, the climate will be different through the low temperature often, where the rains and snow are many because we are in Palestine in Gaza specifically in the great snow or rain Continuing for several days without stopping, and it is possible that the surrounding environment affects a person's opinion on rebuilding more green in terms of their different opinions or habits as well as the nature surrounding the residence or the available materials

    Step 2
    For me, opinion (E) is the most correct because a person is naturally affected by everything around him, and certainly climate change will affect people greatly, as it has a role in agriculture, industry, or even human health, and the most opinion I did not take into account is opinion (B) because it must be The individual does not think selfishly, that is, if he is not harmed, he should think about what harms others and extend a helping hand to people because in the end he will be harmed like others, but in the end opinions will differ from one person to another, perhaps because of the surrounding environment, habits or extent of vulnerability.

    Step 4
    1. I do not agree because it is possible that the actions of this person will admire some and become motivated by them and they start to emulate him and thus the matter spreads among the people and they can overcome and improve the climate change
    2. I agree because high authorities can issue laws regarding the habit of building in a greener way and forcing everyone. I have to stick to it, whereas if it were the choice of the audience, there would not be a large number of people working seriously or cooperatively
    3. I agree, of course, because perhaps some did not have a distant view of the results after building in a greener way, but with progress they will notice the motivating results and are encouraged to do work. Good for building greener

    I agree with the first statement because world climate will not go to change with one person's action. I think if we want to change the climate, we should do it in the group to build back greener. I also definitely agree with the third statement because if some people disagree, it's ok because we have more people on agree side.

    I agree with the third statement" we should build back greener even some people disagree" here are my answers
    planting of trees to make the environment look better
    just in my country Nigeria that everywhere is hot no enough trees
    let's take a look at Amazon forest which is the only place in the world that makes other country cool at as last year a place in the Amazon got burnt and the ozone layer is getting hotter day by day even almost all the animal there has gone exinextinction imagine in all the earth we only have one panda and its about to go extinction too I would have to belive that if most country comes together to build back greener it will be for our own good and I bet you we would all be gratefull for it with this few point of mine if all the ideas of planting trees would-be recommmend in all countries so we can build back greeners

    For step 4 number 1
    I agree 💯 with you because climate change is a long-term change in the average weather patterns that have come to define 🌎 local regional and global climates. These changes have a broad range of observed effects that are synonymous with the term. Which cannot be solved by one person's actions can not make a difference to the climate change but all people actions can make a difference to climate change.

    Yes I can see the effects of Climate Change. In Nigeria, there is extreme heat and there is also deforestation so the heat is extreme.
    It can affects the building back greener because a lot of countries have different climate. For example: Plants cannot grow in winter. It depends on the extreme weather we experience.

    Step 2: 1st Opinion: Business man
    2nd Opinion: World leader
    3rd Opinion: Climate activist
    4th Opinion: A person that is not interested in the environment
    5th Opinion: Climate activist
    6th Opinion: A person that is not interested in the environment\
    I haven't considered opinions of the individuals
    People have different mindset of the environment

    Yes, where you live effects how you see climate change, but even if you're not effected by climate change you should still help decrease the effects of it. Remember because if you not effected by climate change now, you will get effected by it one way or another so might as well help now.
