Short answer is all the countries of Europe were largely responsible. They all spent 30 years building treaties that pitted the sides against each other, conquering and coveting each others foreign colonies and indulging in arms races. The war was easily predicted by many for up to a decade in advance, but no one probably could have imagined the actual carnage. Germany is largely seen as being responisble for being to over eager to go to war for Austria following the assisination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand by Serbian nationalists.

The European countries involved in World War I had long standing alliances and treaties, through familial and diplomatic relations. Once the Austro-Hungarian empire fired on Serbia, all the alliances were called in, causing more and more countries to enter into the war.

Yes, the alliances are what caused the war to spread around Europe. With out them, countries like Russia would not have fought in the war.

People have different opinions about this. Some believe the country with the damage should be responsible, but others believe the countries causing the damage should be responsible. One thing most people agree on is that someone does need to be responsible for repairing environmental damage as much as it can be repaired. How they are held responsible and who is held responsible would vary according to the situation of the war.

Alliances caused World War 1 because when Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, both sides had many secret allies that they dragged with them into the war, causing WW1 instead of a small war between two countries.

Alright, the more political/sensible answer that i would thought of is when the whole world, i mean the whole world is affected. For such cases like the recent Iraq War is not really a world war. But according to history records, World War 1 & 2 are define as 'world wars' is because they involved most major power countries (capable of causing military destructive) to the world are involved such as 'Russia, US, British, Germany etc' and other countries which are co-dependant on each other were greatly affected due to the fact that the main countries would be concentrating on the war, not so much concern about other matters around the world. Therefore other countries would became 'stagant' in a way. If all the countries are affected by the war and Half the world is invovled in the war then it is a world war

The Second World War begun when Germany invaded Poland. So Germany is responsible for starting the war.

No. Several events were responsible for the outbreak of World War II, including World War I. Hitler was involved, but the blame can't be placed on him.
