Climate Change Denial

Moderated by Sarah Richards
George Marshall's blog explores the topic of the psychology of climate change denial - with observations and anecdotes about our weird and disturbed response to the problem. It seeks to answer a question, “why, when the evidence is so strong, and so many agree that this is our greatest problem, are we doing so little about climate change?”

Climate change is supported in many ways. One of the supporting evidence is the retreating glaciers worldwide. Glaciers in Tibet, Alaska, the Rocky Mountains, the Arctic, and in many more places have been reporting an increase in the retreat of ice of the glaciers. Members of the IPCC (intergovernmental panel on climate change) are positive that this is a result from extensive carbon emissions, from man-made objects. Climate change is factual, but are humans responsible for it? Sort of. Climate has shifted in the past 4.6 billion years naturally; with ginormous ice fields, high sea levels, etc. However, there is evidence to the increasing PPM of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and other greenhouse gases. This increase of greenhouse gases trap sun rays from leaving the atmosphere, increasing the heat.

    I agree. Climate change is definitely happening and it may not be because of humans but we could help

Professor James Hansen, often called the “godfather of global warming” recalls on the burning temperatures occurring in the United States from the 1950’s through the 1980’s, stating that the odds of these happenings was rarer than 1 in 300…and only under 30 years later, the climate has shifted, making the odds are now closer to 1 in 10. He says, “this is not some scientific theory. We are now experiencing scientific fact.” Climate change isn’t only happening in America, but all over the world, in Asia, Russia, North and South Poles…everywhere. Greenhouse gases are going into the air and increasing temperatures which causes the ice caps to melt, which then endangers the animals habitats. Frequent earthquakes are causing extreme floods and tidal waves, which puts danger on the citizens that live on coastlines and islands all over the world…and these are just a couple ongoing effects due global warming.

Climate change is here and its happening now. Not only is it happening in large amounts but it’s happening really fast also. Today during lunch I was having a conversation with my friend about climate change. But she said something that I found a little shocking. She said, “Lea, climate change is not real so we have nothing to worry about.” Now before this conversation I really didn’t think that no one belived in climate change. You see it on the news all the times and increase in hurricanes and tornados can be indirectly linked to it also. So after she told me this I did a little reasearch on the topic. And not only is climate change real, Professor William D. Nordhaus from Yale writes, but it has some dire consequences. So if you want to read more about how climate change is happening, I encourage you to click on the link.

Communications expert George Marshall offers six strategies for talking to people who don’t accept that climate change is happening Drawing on his workshops in climate communications and the latest social research he proposes a respectful approach that responds to their interests and values. He says that you should keep away from an argument about the science and concentrate on the personal journey that led you to accept the problem.

QATAR WORLD CUP 2022: A COLOSSAL WRECK- BOUNDLESS AND BARE.

To put it mildly, these plans have caused surprise among scientists. Air-conditioning, not to mention air-conditioned stadiums, famously requires a vast amount of energy, even in temperate climates. The idea that solar energy can power cooling systems in a number of large stadia, reducing the temperatures from 40 degrees to 27, would seem to belong in the realm of dreams.
