Yes - it is astounding that people in this day and age cannot imagine that the same system giving them so many benefits may be their undoing in the end. This level of cognitive dissonance is unprecedented, and there are huge dialogues in all the helping professions about how to communicate the dire realities of massive change and climate disaster so that (a) people will pay attention, or (b) not freak out once they "get it."

And yet as Greta Thunberg keeps telling us right now, our house IS on fire and it's time to act. Personally I think we need a massive mobilization i.e. 10 times the size of what happened for the first and second world wars, but we need strong leaders and the political will for that to occur. Certainly we need to change the human activities that are decimating ecosystems and causing the planet to warm past normal levels, like capitalism and endless growth scenarios.

Of course there are millions of individuals and organizations working toward sustainable solutions right now, and putting on the brakes, but will it be enough? A massive shift in worldview needs to happen, now just ideologically but in practical terms as harmful habits and practices are addressed and transformed. Why is there so much resistance to what needs to be done? Your point on "irrationality being coded into the DNA of Western civilization" is very astute Green Girl, thank you!
