UK Kids Reveal How They’d End Climate Change - Including Hamster-Powered Rrains and Banning Homework

Kids have revealed how they’d end climate change - including hamster-powered trains and banning homework because it uses too much paper. This funny video clip features a host of ways our children would save the planet – such as running cars on ‘special’ chocolate instead of petrol. They’d also like to see an increase in the number people opting to travel by trampoline and by jetpack. The introduction of giant zip wires allowing people to get from A to B without using fossil fuels was also suggested, as was a requirement for everyone with a garden have at least three trees. The pupils provided their insights ahead of the launch of National Grid’s ‘Voices for a Green Future’ competition, which calls on kids to say in 200 words how they’d tackle climate change if they were in charge. Winners will have the chance to put their suggestions to world leaders at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in November via a pre-recorded video. It was launched after a study commissioned by National Grid of 1,500 children aged seven-16 found 80 per cent believe it’s their responsibility to save the planet. While 62 per cent said climate change is one of the aspects of everyday life they feel most passionate about. More than half (52 per cent) have been inspired by Sir David Attenborough – naming him their top ‘climate change hero’ ahead of Greta Thunberg (30 per cent) and Chris Packham CBE (27 per cent).
