The Psychology of Climate Change

ID : 1363   
« back to classes page
This lecture seeks to explain why people vary widely in their beliefs about climate change and their willingness to take action to reduce its impact. Whether you are a “denier,” an “alarmist,” or something in between, you can gain a deeper understanding of how you and others are influenced by the psychology of climate change. The most important psychological factors are assessment of future and distant risks, perception of scientific agreement, rational thought versus emotions, the tendency to seek information that confirms existing beliefs, and the deep-seated human need to identify with groups of people who share certain moral foundations.
