      This article was amazing! Its clear that you put energy and effort into your research! I think that it was important to bring up the mentioned alternatives, but do you think people will get on board with only buying used clothing? It seems like it would be difficult to get a consensus to do this! Heres a link that may help with further research! (https://www.farmdrop.com/blog/how-to-fight-fast-fashion/)

      I can’t wait to see what you write next!

    • Hi Emily,
      I really liked your article because I never knew fast fashion was this big of a problem in our world today. I liked how you said there isn’t a perfect solution, but there are a bunch of little things that we can do to make sure that we are supporting ethical and sustainable brands. Here is a link to a website that provides brands that are both ethical and sustainable but still affordable: https://www.thegoodtrade.com/features/fair-trade-clothing .

    • Estimada Emily :
      Estoy muy interesada con su publicación, “Why is climate change bad? What can you do to stop it? “, por que es muy importante saber sobre el cambio climático. El cambio de clima puede ocasionar varias enfermedades, principalmente resfriado.
      Cuando el clima es más frío tenemos que estar bien abrigados para no enfermarnos.
      Una frase que usted escribió que se destaca para mi es: “Las temperaturas más altas causan clima extremo”. Por que entre mas baja la temperatura hace más frío de lo normal.
      Debemos de protegernos contra el frío ya sea abrigandonos o usando inyecciones para protegernos del frío, para no enfermarse de gripe, tos u otras cosas.
      Si llegamos a enfermarnos debemos de ir inmediatamente a el doctor.
      Gracias por su escritura. Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación, porque me gusta mucho la forma en que hace sus publicaciones.
      Habla sobre cosas de las cuales todos tenemos que estar enterados.
      Además nos da a conocer cosas sobre el clima es muy importante saber porqué surge el cambio de clima.

    • The Global warming is already endangering life on earth. We need to do something to change.
      For the climate change, we can do a lot of things.
      1. Take public transit, like take the bus.
      2. Ride a bike or advocate for bike lanes in your community
      3. Car-share. Share you car to others.

    • In the article ‘Why is Climate change Bad? What can you do to stop it?’ it is evident that climate change will have a highly negative effect on people. This is because, as the article states, temperature will increase dramatically, there will be more droughts, hurricanes, and changes in precipitation. After time the air will will become worse and filled with more sickness caused by mosquitos. Water will also begin to run out causing there to be more droughts along with changes in patterns of precipitation affecting how much rain water falls onto land and ends up back in oceans and rivers. Jobs will also be lost affecting the economy as unemployment rates will begin to decrease.

      Though there is evidence supporting the claim of climate change, there are many people who may disagree and say that climate change is just a myth, not real and I completely disagree with that. I personally support the claims made in the article and agree that these things will happen and will lead to a decline in population and economy. If there is no change many things will be affected, especially our natural resources which are human needs.

      How can we convince others of how important it is to pay attention to climate change?
