These simulations relate to our community because it shows us how we affect the planet. It affects our daily lives because it makes us realize that sometimes we are polluting our own homes. The choices given to us in the simulations make us reconsider how much of an impact our choices have our environment. Some parts of the simulations seem irrelevant to our lives because they mostly relate to Europe, while we live in Canada and are more reliant on oil. We feel that political leaders should act more on cutting CO2 emissions, because many are not very aware of things like this, so the government should help people understand more about climate change and how they can make it better.
The simulations help us find our place in combating climate change by showing what consumption habits of ours create the most emissions so that we know what to change to make the biggest impact. People in different parts of the world create emissions in different ways and would need to change their consumption differently to reduce their CO2 emissions. The simulations really make us realize about the problems in the world and what goes into tackling them while trying to satisfy everyone's needs. It's easy to say that you will do something but it's another thing to actually make that happen. For example, we all know that CO2 emissions are a big problem but our leaders don't handle them as seriously as they should to educate everyone and expect the people to do everything to make change. For some countries, CO2 emissions aren't their biggest problems and many must focus on the greater problems they are dealing within their own countries. Everyone's situations are different but reducing CO2 emissions won't take a lot if we all contribute a little to making it better. Many of us do try to help and change these problems but leadership is needed for guidance. The problem of CO2 emissions becomes greater and greater every year yet we do no significant changes to fix it and that needs to change because eventually one day it will be too late. That's the great thing about simulations like these, they make us realize that our problems won't just disappear by themselves one day and that we need to see the impact we make and how we can change it. Each and every single person can make a difference, big or small, towards making a change for the better. If we all try to make even a little difference, it will greatly help in making our environment and our homes better places.
