Should we Fight Climate Change or Adapt to its Inevitability?
We are not here to argue whether climate change is real or not. It’s real, and it’s bad. We are here to ask the much edgier question - should we fight or adapt?
Our guests include Rebecca Huntley, one of Australia’s leading social researchers, who shifted her entire career to exclusively fight climate change, using her expertise in human behavior to galvanise action.
We also have Alan Heeks, a representative of the Deep Adaptation movement, which urges us to accept the catastrophic reality of climate change, and start a process of acceptance, adaptation, and building resilience.
This episode turns our attention to the much overlooked emotional responses to climate change. From guilt, fear, anger, grief, acceptance, hope and love - what are the most appropriate emotions, and what are the most helpful as we face this global threat? Is telling the truth always the best path forward?
