Global Warming For Kids

Benefits of Recycling.com is presenting this series of pages on global warming becaue we believe there is evidence to support it is real. Even so, we are open to be proven wrong, which is why there are pages on why it is not real. Fair is fair.

The truth is we just want people to be aware that human activities have the possibility of creating adverse effects in the US, Antarctica, Greenland, and throughout the world.

Global warming can also be detrimental to wildlife such as polar bears, creatures like sea turtles, and sea life like coral reefs.

So is global warming a myth or are there facts to support it as a reality of our times? Is there really such a thing as the greenhouse effect? And if so, what is that?

Whether you believe global warming is real or not, we invite you to read what we have uncovered on the many pages of this site… and beyond. Remember, knowledge is power.
Global Warming For Kids / What the Future Holds

Climate change due to global warming directly affects the life of kids today and more so in the future. This is why it is so important for them to be given the chance to learn what it is all about as well as the opportunity to discover how their actions affect the Earth. By encouraging kids to learn about global warming and allowing them to feel that they can make significant differences, they become part of the solution.

Global Warming For Kids / Indifference

Adults always want their children to enjoy the things and activities they did when they were young. This is a huge portion of what environmental sustainability is about and is one of the most powerful motivations adults have in involving their kids in their efforts to live sustainably for the sake of the Earth. However, children now spend less time outdoors and therefore do not have a lot of opportunities to interact with nature.

This is one of the biggest reasons why many kids feel indifferent about the issue of global warming. To allow them to learn about the importance of environmental sustainability, it is important for them to develop connections with nature and enjoy what it is able to provide.

Global Warming For Kids / Awareness and Education

Teaching kids about sustainability in order to reverse the current pace of climate change should also be done by involving them in daily practices of reducing waste as well as water and energy consumption. The importance of those practices should be verbalized and put into action so that they can fully understand the impact of everything we do to the health of our planet.

The issue of climate change and global warming should be tackled on a global scale but kids should be given the opportunity to become involved at a local level. This can be done within their own household, school, or community. They should also be encouraged to learn on their own by exposing them to relevant resources.

Global Warming For Kids / Resources

There are many online resources specifically published for children. Among them are Zerofootprint’s Calculator for Kids and Kidsfootprints’ Ecological Footprint Calculator. These tools allow them to discover the effect of their activities on the planet.

To encourage involvement, kids can visit sites like Clean Up Australia, Millennium Kids, and Aware Kids. Other sites useful for allowing kids to learn about global warming and environmental sustainability include Nickelodeon’s Big Green Help, Earth Day Canada’s EcoKids, and various portions of the US Environmental Protection Agency website such as the Environmental Kids Club, the EPA Student Center, the Climate Change Kids Site, and the Recycle City Interactive Tour.
Global Warming For Kids / Participate

Keep in mind that kids are always eager to learn and be part of something big. By giving them opportunities to learn about global warming and exposing them to sustainable practices, they can play a large part in tackling the issue of global warming now and in the future.
