    Should the present ban on exploiting the resources of the Antarctic be maintained?
    Jade Richards. PD 8

    I think that general economic activity such as fishing and tourism should be ban because allowing this can lead to the results of pollution on Antarctica, some animals and fish would be captured or killed which can also lead to extinction.

    Should AIDS drugs be made cheaper for developing countries?
    Yes Aids drugs should be cheaper due to the fact that so many power countries are stricken with this disease. It should be a given to cure these people.

    I believe that it doesn't matter what age you are if you commit a very serious act of criminality then you should be trialed for it. The law is the law and at the age of 14 you should know what not to do and what should be done, so i would say, if its mandatory to pick an age the age of 16 is appropriate.

    Should the age of criminal responsibility be raised to 16 or even 18 across the world?
    I believe that as human beings we should be able to know wrong from right instead of acting on just pure instinct. The age of criminal activity should be raised to 18 because when a person is 18 they are considered as an adult and as an adult you should be able to know when to behave according to the law and take responsibility for your actions when the time comes.

    Should the age of criminal responsibility be raised to 16 or even 18 across the world?
    Children learn the differences between right and wrong at different times just like how some grow up faster than others. They know the difference between right and wrong early on in Elementary School, however, they feel that the consequences such as going to jail will never happen to them and only to other people. But the age where teenagers should be treated as adults should be at 18 because at 18, you become an adult in your eyes because then, you are allowed to drive without supervision and leave High School and go into the adult world once you graduate.

    Should the age of criminal responsibility be raised to 16 or even 18 across the world?
    i think that the age should be raised to 18 beacause it is the age when kids become a adult legally ansd are mostly mature at that age. 18 is a more fair age for criminal responsiblity because at that age the person has full control of their action.

    Should the age of criminal responsibility be raised to 16 or even 18 across the world?
    As I take a psychology class, I become aware of the various stages of development in a child's life. A child is not fully conscious of what is right or wrong when they are new borns, however, as they grow, they form relationships, receive and education, adapt to certain morals or cultures and are therefore on a road to becoming morally developed. Based on a psychology class and Kohlber's theory, a child becomes aware of what is right or wrong, starting from the age of three, however they act the way they act for distinct reasons as they are maturing. Babies and children often tend to do the right thing for rewards or aknoledgment while teenagers usually think more reflectively about the rules that society sets up for them and whethere these are fair or not. A child that is six might know that stealing is not the right thing to do, however, he or she is not completely aware of the responsability they would carry if they were to get caught. Children are not fully conscious of consequences sometimes, however does this mean the consequences should be banned. Feelings of envy and malicious thought have shown to be present in children that have killed their own family members at ages below ten. Does this mean that they knew they did not know what they were doing? They most likley did, just that they were unconscious of the consequences and the moral behind such acts. The development in each child, since the time he is born varies and is able to determine the struggles this child develops. Despite the fact that some children might develop successfully and some might face problems within themselves and do not progress as well as others. it is crucial that justice is made when something is done for the harm of society. Though jail might not be appropiate for a 10 yr old, charges and other determinations are necessary in order to press charges for something that was not right in any sort of way.
    Due to the lack of knowledge a kid of 2-7 or 8 years old faces regarding a criminal trial or the ideas and reasons behind punishment, I believe the ages 12-16, depending on the scenario of the crime and the child's demonstrated development are the right ages to conclude a decision based on criminal justice.

    Should the age of criminal responsibility be raised to 16 or even 18 across the world?
    To be grown up is to reach the mindset of maturity. No one is ever completely mature therefore no one is ever grown up because to be mature is to be in full development or the state of perfect condition. However, to have a clear understanding, concept of responsibility and the differentiation between right and wrong is a different story. Many children learn by the age of 7 the concept of responsibility such that every action that is taken has a consequence whether it is good or bad. I believe that by the age of 11 or 12 a child understands the importance of being earnest that should cause them to take caution in every action they take. Therefore meaning not having the concept of special treatment because of their age. An action that is taken should be treated with a consequence that goes with it. A child should take part in the criminal justice system and trial process at age 16 due to the information that is well provided through many resources such as media, discussions within education system, and personal discussions with friends and family that gives the child a synopsis of what will happen.

    Should the age of criminal responsibility be raised to 16 or even 18 across the world?
    1) Whatever age the child was taught/demonstrated the difference between right and wrong.
    2) Whatever age the child committed a crime. If the child is capable of committing a crime at a young age, s/he will do much worse at a later time in his/her life.
