    To the Norwegian explorer,
    Is the North Pole now the same as it was when you were the first to reach it unsupported? If not, is it ALL because of climate change?

    For the UK Student Climate Network person
    What inspired you to join/ make this club?
    When did you first get the idea?

    For the Norwegian Explorer
    Looking back now do you feel upset knowing all of the animals you saw there might be on a disloged iceberg that is slowly melting away beneath their feet as they moan in fear?
    Why did you want to go to the north pole?
    Did you take any photos so you might be able to do a before and after picture?
    How long did you spend in the North Pole?
    This is for the climate change scientist
    Why did you choose to be a climate change scientist over another scientific career?
    In 20 years time if continue like this how many countries will still be above water level?

    I would like to ask a representative from the Committee on Climate Change ,
    Is everyone turning vegan a situation we will all have to face?
    A question for a Climate Change scientist,
    Although we hope climate change will end can you estimate the time of the all the water reaching England and the speed and also the last country it would reach?

    why is this happening to very young people only you and the government can change this outcome. Parents will you make your children happy?. So don't encourage your children in this protest. Would you have your say to stop this protest?

      Hey magical crab,
      I noticed that our questions were really similar especially the one about the dislodged iceberg and the pole bear whimpering.

    To the climate change professor:
    If the government know about climate change why aren't they doing very much or at least listening to the public? and what more do we have to do individually to at lest make a small change.

    To the Climate Change Professor,
    Why did you decide not to be one of the crowd and try to stop pollution?
    Surely you do something to pollute the world at home?
    Do you like your job?
    Do you like being a Climate Change Professor/SUPERHERO?!
    What is it like to save the world but no-one listens to you?
    Do you ever encourage children to be like you?

    To the climate change scientist,
    If the government knows about it then why aren't acting to save our planet? What would happen if we don't react fast? Will we be able to stop it?

    To the Norwegian explorer
    How does it feel to watch animals die of hunger ?
    Did it make you cry ?
    Did you watch the pola bears try and stay on the ice whilst it was mellting ?

    Was it upsetting seeing the ice melting and pola bears nearly dying of starvation?
    Also is it amazing to see how different animals live in the north pole /were you sad aswell ?

    How are the polar bears already doing, what i mean, are they in critical danger?
    To the Climate Change Scientist
    Will the climate change effect things we do in our normal life?
    How warm or cold will it be getting if our world experiences extreme climate change?

    For the climate change scientist:
    -By how much do we have to reduce our carbon emissions to help stop global warming, do we have to stop them entirely or just by a percentage?
    -If we were all to make one change in the way we live our lives to help stop climate change, what do you think that should be?
    -If we don't change and carry on polluting and cutting down trees at our current rate, how will it affect our planet, ourselves and other animals?

    For the Norwegian explorer:
    -how have the polar ice caps changed through your lifetime and what are your feelings on it?
    -how important do you think it is that we stop climate change to preserve natural places like the North pole?

    For the representative from UK Student Climate network:
    -Why do you think the climate change movement and strikes have attracted the youth so much?
    -What do you think the significance of the youth voicing their opinions and becoming so involved in climate change is?
    -What have the school strikes achieved so far and what are you hopeful they will achieve in the future?

    For the representative from The Committee on Climate Change:
    -How much are governments actually doing to help combat climate change?
    -What do governments need to do differently and why aren't they doing so?
    -How expensive is ' building a low-carbon economy'?

    For all of them:
    -Why does you/your organisation feel so passionately about climate change?

    To the climate change scientist:
    Have the explores been listening to you scientists?
    Approximately when will our Earth not be suitable for us?
    What are scientists doing to help?
    Would we be able to move to a different planet if the Earth is too hot?
    Will we die and how will we die? What exactly will happen to our body if climate change doesn't have a stop?
    How many countries will flood?
    How many countries will get droughts?
    Why did you want to be a climate change scientists?

    For the explorer:
    What made you want to go to the North Pole?
    What were the conditions of the species at the North Pole?
    Did it seem as if the ice caps were melting rapidly or slowly?
    Did you think of anything that we could do about this particular situation?

    To the climate scientist:

    Question 1 - Recently I have seen a scary report that scientists are said to be shocked by ice melting faster than they had thought from Greenland and the Himalayas along with the alarming news that the Arctic permafrost is thawing faster, 70 years sooner than predicted.
    Does this mean we actually have a lot less than the 12 years we thought we had (already closer to the end of one year) to avert a climate catastrophe?

    Question 2 - Looking at the way things are, I fear our government is not committed to taking serious action on Climate Change (priority is on Brexit, and the plans for Heathrow runway and HS2 is still going ahead!). In your honest opinions, is it actually too late to prevent global warming from hitting that critical level?

    For the representative from The Committee on Climate Change:

    What are the major plans that you have put forward to drastically tackle the climate emergency?
    What plans have the government agreed to so far?

    If you were to go to Norway would you find as much ice as before?

    To the climate change scientist,
    How dramatically would the world change in 100 years if we don't do something about climate change? And how do people help to stop it and what are you doing to stop it?
