Climate Change – What We Learned

What We Learned About Climate Change 

 

Why Did We Choose to do Climate Change?

We chose to do climate change as a topic because it is fast becoming the most relevant subject in the world. Also, because COP 26 was coming up and this year it was in Glasgow which is our home city. The temperature increase of the Earth has doubled since 1981 this was quite interesting and we are causing our planet to overheat at a dangerous level.

 

What Have We Learned?

We have learnt about a lot of things from our climate change topic. A few examples of them would include Deforestation, Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), Carbon Footprints, Plastic Pollution and Electric Cars. Personally, my favourite part of this topic was learning about Deforestation.

 

Why Is COP 26 Important?

COP 26 was such an important event as it addressed climate change and the Paris Agreement more thoroughly, though some world leaders did not bother to show up. As well as this COP 26 was hosted in Glasgow which is quite close to our home and school, and we are very proud it was hosted here in Glasgow.

 

Why Is Climate Change an Issue?

Climate change is an important issue because lots of animals are going extinct and lots of humans are dying because of landslides, floods, tsunamis, forest fires and lots of other examples.  This a very concerning issue because at this point humans are also going extinct.
