GLRPPR Sector Resource: Let's Speak About Climate Change

Title:
Let's Speak About Climate Change

Abstract:
This booklet aims to encourage people to consider and to connect with others on the biggest issue of our time. It is written for all of us who are caught between two states: wanting or daring to understand climate change, and finding it unbearable to acknowledge what a serious problem it really is. As psychologists, we also want to throw some light on the way human nature contributes to this predicament. People tend to distance themselves from an issue when it is deeply uncomfortable and challenging. This is especially so if it threatens our sense of who we are and what we stand for.
