Climate doomism: Is it the end of the world?

Are you suffering from any of the following symptoms?


Feelings of hopelessness for the planet; paralysis when it comes to taking sustainable action; and disengagement from discussions about climate change. 


If any of the above applies to you, then you are probably coming down with a case of climate doomism. 


Climate doomism refers to the belief that climate change is unstoppable and will result in catastrophic consequences beyond human control. It's a complex issue fuelled by fear, frustration, and the overwhelming nature of the climate crisis.


A 2021 study by the American Psychological Association found that over 80% of young people in the US are worried about climate change, and over half reported feeling helpless, anxious, or sad about it. 


Based on this information, how can we harness positivity and better understand what we are experiencing? 


While the situation is serious, there is still hope. Many are finding solutions in their communities: local or online. Individual actions on a global scale can quickly snowball into positive change.
