The Psychology of Climate Change2018 Routledge
What explains our attitudes towards the environment? Why do so many climate change initiatives fail? How can we do more to prevent humans damaging the environment?
The Psychology of Climate Change explores the evidence for our changing environment, and suggests there is a significant cognitive bias in how we think about, and act on climate change. The authors examine how organisations have attempted to mobilise the public in the fight against climate change, but have often failed due to an unwillingness to adapt our individual behaviours, which must be challenged. They also explore why some people deny climate change altogether, and the influence they can have on others.
By analysing our attitudes to the environment, The Psychology of Climate Change shows that we must think differently about climate change to protect our planet from further harm.
