‘Gebrek aan actie tegen klimaatverandering is psychologisch probleem’

AMSTERDAM – Onze eigen hersenen houden ons tegen actie te ondernemen om klimaatverandering tegen te gaan. De opwarming van de aarde is niet concreet genoeg en gaat niet snel genoeg.

Bordjes die aangeven hoe erg de zeespiegel gaat stijgen door klimaatveranderingDit stellen psychologen tegenover het Amerikaanse Time Magazine.

Volgens klimaatwetenschapper Christopher Rapley staan de klimaatwetenschappen voor een enorm dilemma. Het simpelweg geven van informatie over klimaatverandering blijkt niet genoeg te zijn omdat “het de onderliggende oorzaken niet aanpakt”.

Dreiging van klimaatverandering

Psycholoog Renee Lertzman noemt de dreiging van klimaatverandering uniek op een psychisch en sociaal niveau. Volgens hem staan we voor een mijnenveld van mentale drempels die ons tegen houden de dreiging aan te pakken.

Daniel Gilbert, eveneens psycholoog, valt hem bij. Gilbert benadrukt dat klimaatverandering geen menselijke vorm aanneemt. Hierdoor wordt het moeilijk voor ons om over klimaatverandering te denken als iets vijandigs.

Klimaatverandering gaat te langzaam 

Verder gaat klimaatverandering ook te langzaam. Onze geest heeft het genormaliseerd, volgens Gilbert. Dit maakt het een dodelijke dreiging “omdat het het alarmsysteem van het brein niet activeert. Dit laat ons slapend achter in een brandend bed”.

Wetenschappers zeggen inmiddels maar liefst 30 verschillende psychologische drempels te hebben gevonden waardoor de mens geen actie onderneemt tegen klimaatverandering. Een van de belangrijkste drempels zou zijn dat men denkt te klein te zijn als individu om iets uitte halen.

    CO2激光(CO2 laser / 二氧化碳激光)的波長是10600nm,照射到皮膚上會被皮膚的水份吸收,瞬間將皮膚有問題的組織氣化。CO2激光可以用來消除各種皮膚問題包括疣、癦、痣、脂溢性角化、粉刺和汗管瘤等。當治療後,您的皮膚需要5至10天時間復原。期間保持傷口清潔便可。優點:CO2激光所切割的深度比刮除術較深,亦較精準。可以處理較深層的皮膚問題,例如去除癦、油脂粒、肉粒、疣、珍珠疣、角質增生等。其復原亦較快,減少留下疤痕的機會。它最大的優點在於,能夠進一步減少激光治療過程當中的熱損傷反應,提升了激光治療的安全性,治療過程中幾乎沒有疼痛感

    Christina was born in the royal castle Tre Kronor on 18 December S. 8 December] 1626. Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626. When the baby was born, it was first thought to be a boy as it was “hairy” and screamed “with a strong, hoarse voice.”she later wrote in her autobiography that, “Deep embarrassment spread among the women when they discovered their mistake.” The king, though, was very happy, stating, “She’ll be clever, she has made fools of us all!”6] From most accounts, Gustav Adolf appears to have been closely attached to his daughter, and she appears to have admired him greatly.

    Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
