This is a slightly different post to the usual, you know, fossils and shit. It concerns the psychology behind climate change and mobilising towards a green future. Now this is by no means my area of expertise, but when I attended a talk recently by Oliver James at The Photographers' Gallery in London, entitled “Our Mad World”, it really struck a chord with me.
Regular readers will know that one of common themes and bugbears is how the Left and right resort to economic growth to justify austerity or anti austerity policies. Its good to know that psychologically I am in right track and things are getting better even if it doesn't seem like it. As Hegel says, everything happens in time through a dialectic between resistance and change, Freudian life and death instincts.
