How to Talk to a Global Warming Sceptic


The stages of grief are usually defined as Denial, Bargaining, Anger, Despair & Acceptance. In the face of the environmental issues of global warming and climate change, it seems that individuals are going through this process. Unfortunately, while some of us are at the Acceptance stage (I personally am somewhere between Despair & Acceptance), a lot of people seem to be still in Denial.

So how do we deal with people in Denial? How do we get them to come to the realisation that we have; that something is terribly wrong, and something needs to be done? Well, in psychological terms, we should be non-judgemental and be good listeners. During the Denial stage, people will try to rationalise their belief that nothing is wrong, or that there is nothing that we can do about it.

A lot of things have been claimed as the cause of global warming, A Russian scientist recently said it was caused by a meteor explosion a hundred years ago", a science professor says it is caused by cosmic rays from the stars, others think it has to do with cows farting.

With a new theory seeming to pop up every day, it is getting harder and harder for us in Acceptance stage to convince those in Denial. Fortunately, there is blog that may be of help. A Few Things Ill Considered blog has a section titled How to Talk to a Global Warming Sceptic.

So, next time someone tells you that action on global warming is suicide, point them in the direction of this blog. It may make them angry, but that's one of the next steps towards acceptance.

We should be careful and fussy in all the intelligence we give. We should be extraordinarily prudent in giving advice that we would not dream up of following ourselves. Most of all, we ought to evade giving counsel which we don't mind when it damages those who take us at our word.

To be a adroit human being is to from a kind of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an skill to group unsure things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in hugely exceptionally circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly important with the fettle of the honest autobiography: that it is based on a trustworthiness in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a prize, something rather feeble, but whose very item attraction is inseparable from that fragility.
