I believe that Global Warming is happening partly because of humans. It’s also the planet but it’s about how much we waste like energy and food. I think that Global Warming is happening because the Polar ice caps are melting and glaciers are melting at a very fast rate. Ice is being exposed and that ice hasn’t been exposed for millions of years. Polar Bears and Penguins are losing their habitat and soon enough lots of islands will be underwater. The only problem is HUMANS CAN’T SURVIVE UNDERWATER!!! Because of us there is more and more rubbish in Landfill EVERY day. Loads and loads of rubbish get tipped into that dirt!! I can’t believe what’s happening to our planet. And when wrappers, plastics and other products that don’t decompose get really tall, the plastic will probably release dangerous gases and it will be treacherous for us to breath the pollution. The world might be getting hotter but we are definitely making it a whole lot hotter with all our waste. Some ways to save waste are cooking only as much as you need, turn off water when you’re not using it, try to use less fossil fuels by fitting more people in one car. I definitely think that the Government should start saving up money and get Green Energy in Australia. I think that it should be a law and when somebody doesn’t have Green Energy they should get a fine, because it’s wrecking our planet and it’s putting lives in danger, lives that spend their money trying to save the planet but in the end it’s all just a big waste because some people really just don’t care. But I’m still wondering why people such as Al Gor spend so much money on advertising the wrong things when they could be using the money on trying to save the planet?
I believe that the Earth is changing but not because of us because of the natural cycles that Earth goes through. The video we saw was very convincing on both sides of the debate over if climate change is because of us or just natural. I think it is natural because in the past people have said that the Earth is COOLING and now WARMING something isn’t right!!! In the video we saw people said that where ever there is cyclones there will be more cyclones and where every there is extreme warmth there will be more warmth and where there is hurricanes there will be more hurricanes but scientists don’t see that happening. People are saying these things just to scare us into thinking that it is all our fault that the Earth is now suddenly changing, well it ISN’T ALL OUR FAULT it is maybe only 20% our fault but it is mainly just the EARTH CHANGING in its NATURAL cycles and we shouldn’t have to change how we live completely we may have to change juts a bit but not fully. Al Gore may have twisted the story a bit but some of the things are true about what he said and believes and wants us to believe we should be able to choose ourselves not to be forced to choose how he thinks just because he is saying that we are all stupid if we don’t think the way he thinks it just isn’t FAIR!!! I still don’t understand why there is a debate over if the world is changing because of us or just natural?
Hi Sasha, It feels like you were really convinced by the video, but I was wondering we are definitely polluting the earth more than before due to our energy needs. What is the impact of that on our earth?
I believe that co2 is good for us, and it comes out of trees, and co2 is carbon dioxide. Well I heard that if we have too much co2 then the earth heats up, and we get closer to global warming, and we all ready have greenhouse gases. If that is true then I still don’t get how too much co2 is bad for the earth. And that the earth gets hotter.
I believe that Climate Change is Partly caused by humans and Partly caused by the earth’s natural cycle. The part that is caused by humans is mainly pollution and how we make too much pollution in the world that’s why we have a hole in the ozone layer. The part that is caused by the earth’s natural cycle is the earth heating and cooling. For Example when the sun heats the earth and reflects off into space it usually keeps some of the heat in the ozone layer but because of all the pollution the ozone layer is thicker and more and more heat is kept in the earth which heats the earth. That’s why I believe that there is Climate Change.
I think about the movie we watched about climate change and i am very confused. I think that we are doing a little bit of it but on the other hand it is natural. Climate Change can be very confusing.
Climate Change is very important and you need to use renewable energy to stop Climate Change.
I think that global warming is caused by 1/3 climate change, 1/3 CO2 from humans and 1/3 CO2 from electronic devices.
I believe in this because humans are obviously causing a bit of CO2 but then multiply the average CO2 produced per person and times it by 6.8 billion!!!! I personally think that that would come to A LOT. Then with CO2 from electronic devices it is probably a lot. Around 1/7 of the world have no electronic devices but then the other 6/7 is probably using a quite a lot. So I think that if the other 1/7 would also have electricity it may have been able to take 2/5 rather than 1/3 but I don’t think enough people have electronic things to make it that high. Then with the climate change I was actually wasn’t really sure……I have heard a lot of convincing arguments to make me believe in it but I am personally not fully convinced yet so I came up with my own little theory that maybe It is us, electronics and just the natural world itself.
I thought the production was well done and it made me think what kind of things that we could do or what we have done that has made an impact on the world. I learnt that the world goes through changes and it’s not all our fault that climate change is going to come also I learnt what damages has come upon us because of climate change.
I strongly believe that global warming is happening partly because of us. But I’m starting to think maybe not. Because a lot of scientists are having a debate that it is natural and the others are saying it is because of us but we don’t know which side to take. We use so much pollution everyday whether it is transport, water with water, we use so much everyday. And people die everyday because they don’t have water. We are really wasting pollution and power, but I don’t think its because of us I think that it is natural.
I’m very confused if Al Gore could be lying and the scientist could be lying too. My belief is that we are causing a little of climate change, the world is going through a cycle example the ice age, but we are causing pollution, we are causing C02 we need to stop!!
I think that climate change is our fault because climate change only started when people stated having cars, computers and etc. There wasn’t any climate change for thousands of years, maybe a small part of it is because of climate change but most of it is caused to the carbon dioxide which we produce.
I think that we are the cause of global warming.
If it weren’t for new technology we wouldn’t be as lazy as we are now, we wouldnt have to deal with global warming, the olden days were much more strict and if they made a law that you had to use compost and we would not have as many lights and all of that stuff, we would not be in this dilemma. i won’t believe that nature has done this, because i believe in G-d and I believe he controls nature. why would he do this to the world he has created. i think that technology is just an excuse for laziness. before we know it the ice will melt, animals extinct and probably things that we cant comprehend. we are a world, one world, one massive family, one planet, one little planet in the atmasphere. if it weren’t for electricity we wouldn’t have the dryer, the washing machine, the pool heater, the air conditioner, the television the list goes on and on. I think because of some of these household appliances that carbon dioxide is probably tripled. we have so much waste and one day landfill is going ot be filled up and then we will be thinking twice before we throw out something we don’t need to. We need to help keep our planet clean and enjoyable, we are not here to destroy it. When G-d created the world, he didnt create us to go with it to dimolish it. did he?
Hi Tia, I was wondering, if we did not have technological advances, could we take care of the huge population og the world? For example, clothes are noe being made in huge factories, not in a spinning yarn as we saw in Sovereign Hill. If we still made our own clothes will it be sustainable?
I believe that globel warming is true but I do not think that we are not doing all of it. I allso think that that the world is warming up any way. I think we need to change our ways but not just for the world but for the better of our well being like walking instead of driving.
