Why do we ignore climate change?
Psychologist George Marshall — author of Why Our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change — says that humans are more inclined to believe information presented in a narratively satisfying way. It appeals to our ’emotional brain’ and engages us to think about climate change in a more personal and relatable way.
Are humans trying to stop global warming?
Yes. While we cannot stop global warming overnight, we can slow the rate and limit the amount of global warming by reducing human emissions of heat-trapping gases and soot (“black carbon”).
Why should we care about global warming?
Climate change won’t just impact forest, or coral reefs, or even people in far-off countries – it will affect all of us. From more extreme weather to increasing food prices, to recreation and decreased opportunities to appreciate the natural world, people everywhere will feel its effects.
