The Emotions of Climate Change

I’ve been on a journey to understand the fundamentals of capitalism and how it relates to the world we live in. One of the big drivers for change when looking at our capitalist model is climate change.

Climate change is an issue that has been sensationalised so much that we become a bit desensitised to it.

Still, as I went about learning more about how interconnected and complex the problem was, I noticed myself going on an emotional roller-coaster ride that I think many people share.

This peak-drop trend is I think an unintended side effect of activism that uses doom-and-gloom narratives to motivate people into action. The end result becomes apathy, rather than a sustained commitment to change.

So as I write about the changes that I think capitalism could use to improve, I’m going to do my best not to create the above.
