BBC has launched a climate change chat box

BBC News presented a chat bot helping people learn about global warming and climate change in weekly conversations on Facebook Messenger.

Subscribers will get an alert every Wednesday inviting them to explore topics from rising temperatures to new ways of tackling global warming.

They can also ask questions which the bot will pass on for our human journalists to answer.

Nowadays the audiences are hungry for a better understanding of where the world stands on targets to control rising temperatures.

This tool allows them to choose the climate-related topics they are most interested in, learning more through conversation which they control.

The United Nations says we should take drastic action to cut greenhouse gas emissions within 12 years to limit the negative effects of climate change around the world.

Scientists add that keeping to the preferred target of 1.5C above pre-industrial levels will mean “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society”.

The climate bot gives users the possibility to increase their understanding of the challenges in weekly instalments.

Also it will help to install some of the actions that can become a habit, from transport choices to diet.
