Earth And Sky

Chet, Kate, Rani, Laurel, and Kyle love Annie Dinerman’s Christmas song Earth and Sky!

Like Annie, all the Global Green Pals want for Christmas is a world with clean air, a clear ocean, green forests, and safe homes for animals around the globe. Leave us a comment telling us what you want for Christmas.

Youth and Climate Change on the occasion of COP16

Climate change affects us all. For the past 2 weeks, people from all over the world have been meeting in Cancun, Mexico for the COP 16 climate change conference. The goal of COP 16 is to get countries, communities, and people around the world to collaborate and work together to help the planet! What will the result of COP16 be?  We will find out in the years to come. But meanwhile, we can all take action now!

What is climate change?

Carbon emissions have been rising for decades. These greenhouse gases have caused the earth’s temperature to rise both on land and in the ocean. As a result there has been an increase in droughts, melting glaciers, floods, soil quality reduction, and heat waves.

What can we do?

Countries can reduce greenhouse gases by increasing their use of wind power and other renewable energy sources.

All of us can also help combat climate change by turning our attention to the youth.  Today’s youth are tomorrow’s future! Many youth organizations around the globe are taking the lead. An example is the UK’s DECC Youth Advisory Panel, which stresses the importance of involving young people in environmental decisions. Children are the ones who will inherit the earth so it is important they learn to take action early on. The DECC Youth Panel hopes doing so will help reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2050.

Why not increase awareness as early as possible? Global Green Pals doll characters like Carbon Offset Chet and Pink Coral Laurel can help children to start thinking positively about these topics early and help raise awareness about how they can help the planet. Simple things like turning off the lights when they leave a room, walking to school, buying locally-grown food, keeping beaches clean, and recycling can make a collective difference in their future by 2020.  The children of today are the decision-makers of tomorrow.

The COP 16 conference will end, but climate change continues. We all deserve a sustainable world and must do our part for the planet. Remember it is cool to care about the climate! Join Global Green Pals in spreading the word.
