Climate change : Why aren't we doing more?

Less doom and gloom scenarios, a new approach and dare to be more scientific and social cooperation, are able to engage instruments of how people are more against climate change. This is a result of our research and discussions with various experts on the topic. In our days mirror-Sunday edition, we explore the question of why we, humans, know as much as never before on climate change and its dangers, but in spite of so little to do. All of the interviewed experts, such as the President of the German society for psychiatry and psychotherapy, Arno Deister, the Pro-climate-Veteran George Marshall or the Director of the "Foundation for the future ability of the future two" Harald Welzer, are convinced that it is mainly counter-productive to make the people with doomsday scenarios of fear. Because fear, especially loss of control fears, are a major cause of why people act in seemingly irrational. These Fears are evolutionary and in many forms also of our behavior. However, this behavior is new to learn. This is the good news.

psychotherapists also speak of the "madness of the situation," because of our distorted perception of reality serves to seal directly in front of this reality, which is, in turn, the fear of not bearable, or changeable, can be influenced could be. The recognition of the danger and simultaneous avoidance of two different sides of the same coin. Studies show that people respond to the climate change, similar to the worldwide issue of refugees. They isolate themselves, fall into nationalism, ethnocentrism, blame other groups. In addition, the climate debate is not charged only unconsciously, emotionally, but also led to ideological. George Marshall calls for a completely new approach, the Rapprochement of political groups, especially of the Left on Conservatives to find common identities for the fight against climate change, such as: humanity, concern for the future of their own children.

"There is no idea for a environmentally friendly economic system"

The social psychologist Harald Welzer makes in an Interview with the daily mirror the policy responsible for the Situation. He says: "We have no climate change policy. We had one, we would have less emissions – we do not have but, on the contrary." Welzer also calls for a rethink of the company, the self-lie: "There is no idea for an economic system that ensures this level of life safety and at the same time, is environment-friendly." It is the challenge of the 21st century. Century, that our Form of free and secure society on a material Basis.

Sunday in the daily mirror: marten stone, the Klimasau!

Welzer, as well as George Marshall, the founder of the Pro-climate Institute, "Climate Outreach", believe that only the interdisciplinary cooperation of experts from all areas can lead to a turning point. Welzer says: "We must look forward and scope for action. We have a social science that deals with positive change of society? We have an economic science, which deals with Non-growth-based Economies? We have a history, which explains how companies in crisis situations such as the current worked out? No, in any case, much too little. The natural Sciences in the light of debate, also makes the communication so difficult."
