Our brains struggle to grasp climate change.
Reactions to flooding, wildfires, and heatwaves often include anxiety, denial, and despair. Connecting these feelings to specific human actions can be challenging. For over a decade, I have been striving to encourage policymakers to be more ambitious in protecting our environment.
Fortunately, there’s a simple way to shift any climate conversation into a sensemaking perspective, potentially increasing the likelihood of people taking action.
Many individuals find it hard to accept that climate change is irreversible. When confronted with this reality, it’s essential to quickly emphasize that it will fundamentally alter every aspect of our civilization.
This leads to the realization:
Some studies suggest that climate change could reduce global economic output by up to 14% by 2050, while others predict a 30% reduction by 2100. However, these figures may underestimate the true economic damage.
But there’s hope.
Fighting climate change means we can lessen the harm to people and nature and, at the same time, improve the air we breathe and our overall well-being.
We are navigating a huge wave of people realizing that the whole global economy needs to be re-wired to reach decarbonization as soon as possible.
With significant gaps in education and capabilities worldwide, there’s enormous potential for career transformation or initiating climate action for anyone eager to channel their anxiety into positive change.

I work in the sustainability sector but often find it hard to provide relatively simple-to-understand resources that explain the current triple planetary crisis and how they are interconnected.
For example, last night a friend who is slightly on the conspiracy fringe was saying how he is well onto biodiversity preservation but doesn't really see how carbon emissions are that bad.
It took me a good 20mn to explain the basics on emissions, global warming effect, and how these impact and are impacted by biodiversity loss and pollution. And I barely scratched the surface.
The hardest part for many people to understand seems to be this interconnectedness, it's not JUST carbon, nor is it JUST pollution, but all these different elements influencing each other making the issue exponential.
I'm curious if you have any go-to graphs, infographics, or resources that help communicate this?
One example find really well done and makes good use of infographics is this page by french newspaper LeMonde (although it does focus mainly on emissions).
We will recycle, repair, protect ecosystems, protect our biodiversity, our water, soil and air. Our environment protects us in many ways and gives us the opportunity to live a healthy life.
