Curiosity Corner Competition No.34

 

In your first Curiosity Corner Competition of the issue, Clever Columnist from Colegrave asked this question about cars. This is an interesting question as although the answer is fairly straight-forward (banning individual cars would definitely help to deal with climate change), it could cause a lot of debate. For example, cars are very useful for a lot of people. They mean they can get to work, take their kids to school, go to the shops to buy food. Do you think people would give up their cars easily? It would be interesting for someone to write a post looking at this question.

Enter this week’s competition here.

    You can’t have lots of green energy because it will cost the countries lots of money so it is best to continue with burning fossil fuels. Climate change affects everyone but not everyone will help with the problem, so why should we?

      I disagree. We need to set an example and make the changes now for a better life in the future. the money will be worth spending because fossil fuels won’t last forever.

      I disagree because climate change affects everybody so we should all help to solve it. If we all work to solve it climate change wont be a problem.

      Why should we stop using fossil fuels? If they are there then why can’t we just use them while we can?

    Poor people are caring about water instead of climate change, because it is so hard to just survive. So how can we persuade them to think about the effects of climate change?

    Why can’t we stop big cars and make people drive smaller cars?

  4. We should be dealing with climate change because it will effect our children and Grandchildren. If we stop climate change then we can then use that money for other things. If we stop the climate change then we will be saving the world and survive longer. People will suffer if we don’t stop climate change.

    How can we carry on using fossil fuels because eventually they will run out and we will have to find more ways to use green energy?

    Why can we not agree to slow down the use of fossil fuels and introduce more renewable energy so that people get more used to it?

    Is it fair that America, Europe and China have made the most Carbon Dioxide from burning fossil fuels, while the poor farming countries along the equator are the ones who suffer the most and have contributed the least to the problem?

    Because of climate change the ice caps are melting – how can we help to reduce the effects of flooding?

    If we as a planet worked together to stop the hole in the ozone layer by banning the use of CFCs around the world why can we not come together to ban the burning of fossil fuels and stop global warming?

    Why don’t you leaders of countries actually try to stop climate change instead of spending money on less efficient things such as big dinners with 3 course meals while the earth is dying?

    Is it worth dealing with climate change? It varies from person to person. Personally, I think that we should deal with climate change. People, poor people in fact, are struggling because of climate change, even though they didn’t do anything, it’s our fault and do you really think it’s fair to let the people who did nothing to deserve it, suffer?
    So for that reason is why I think that we should deal with it and infact it will not just benefit them, it will help us.
    Think about this question and think about your own reply to if it’s worth dealing with climate change.

    Would banning individual cars stop Climate Change?

    I think no because cars aren’t the only cause of Climate Change:
    Because if you didn’t know very more deadly causes of Climate Change such as Factories, yes it would help stop Climate Change but there is very more affective causes of Climate Change that if they were taken care of Climate Change may come to an end such as Factories they bring out a huge amount of Pollution every year and Cutting down trees and much more. So why only cars?

    Would banning individual cars stop climate change?
    My opinion is that it will help part of the solution of stopping climate change but then it won’t be enough because: Planes, Factories, Rockets, and Aircraft’s still make’s pollution witch causes climate change and just stopping cars won’t help that much and as I said before it will help part of the solution. So that’s my opinion.
