We taught everyone on a local council about climate change.  Here’s what we learnt. 

local council climate change

We had the pleasure and privilege of teaching the entire staff and elected representatives of a local council about climate change. Our workshop was given to over 600 people and covered the causes and the future threat of climate change as well as what we can do about it. Here is what we learnt.

People have noticed climate change but aren’t talking about it
When we ask people what climate change they’ve witnessed, they’re quick to respond. Less snow, milder winters, more extreme rainfall, less frosts, are some of the typical responses. Other answers are less predictable, such as “more ticks” which is indeed an expected climate change impact, or “fatter magpies” which, as far as I know, is not. What all the answers show though, is that people are noticing the climate changing around them. The problem is that, most of the time, they’re not talking about it. This is partly because we like to talk about things which involve human drama. There’s not a lot of drama in climatic changes unfolding over decades. And when it is dramatic, such as devastating floods or storms, it’s not helpful to point out that er, actually, this is caused by climate change, don’t you know. The result is that we tend to stay schtum about the biggest threat we face.

One benefit of training, therefore, is to simply provide a space where people can put their observations, thoughts and fears about climate change on the table. It brings the issue from the back of people’s minds to the front. By doing so, we’re able to normalise talking about the problem – and by extension, tackling it.

Misconceptions persist, even among those in charge
Although most of us recognise climate change is happening, levels of understanding about the causes and solutions remain mixed. Some misconceptions are quite widespread and local politicians are not immune from believing in unfounded ideas. Often, for example, the problems of plastic pollution and climate change have merged together in people’s minds. It is not uncommon for people to cite reducing single-use plastic as a key way to tackle global heating. (This would help, but tackling plastics is mainly about taking the physical stuff out of our environment so it doesn’t kill animals or end up in the human food chain.) At the more extreme end of the misconception spectrum, are old school climate change denial tropes. One local authority councillor said that they’d done their research and global warming was simply the result of increased solar activity (i.e. the sun getting hotter).

What this all shows is that Tony Blair’s famous quote about his priorities was spot on. It’s “education, education and education”.

People get emotional and that’s good
Although concerned about climate change, most people don’t quite recognise how plausible a worst case scenario is, or what that would mean for their families. We spell this out. According to the Met Office’s head of climate impacts, 4C of warming remains “easily possible”. That would mean, among other things, not enough water to drink, food supplies threatened, coastal settlements obliterated, 1 in six animal species extinct, all coral reefs dead… When asked how this makes them feel, our participants, perhaps unsurprisingly, use emotional language. “Grief stricken”, “distraught, and “horrified” are some of the terms used, as well as “sad”, “anxious” and “worried for my children”.

This kind of response is useful because if someone feels a strong emotion about something, they’re more likely to internalise and remember it. More importantly from a climate action perspective, it means they’re more likely to do something about it.

If people feel some control, a sense of helplessness evaporates
When confronted with the enormity of a problem – the difficulty of changing course and the consequences of not doing so – people were often left feeling overwhelmed and powerless. However when shown simple steps to reduce their own carbon footprint, impotence was quickly replaced with impatience to act. One participant said they felt “hopeless”, but, when given a blueprint for action, promised to “investigate the green grant”. Another said they felt “paralysed by the hugeness of it”, but then said they would “try and plant-based diet once a week”. “Sad and hopeless,” said another, before promising to “walk more and eat less meat”. We only feel helpless if we feel we have no control over the situation. When people understand that we can all contribute, people feel the opposite emotion – they feel powerful. More importantly, they feel excited about putting that power to use.

    on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about
    switching to another platform. I have heard good things about
    blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    sense. However, think about this, suppose you
    typed a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t wish to
    tell you how to run your website, however what if you added something
    that makes people desire more? I mean Teaching a local council about climate change – Three Point Five is a
    little boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s
    front page and watch how they create news titles to get people to open the links.

    You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    really will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new
    spin on a subject that has been discussed for ages. Great stuff, just wonderful!

  185. Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am
    impressed! Extremely helpful information specially the last part 🙂
    I care for such info much. I was looking for this certain info for
    a long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  186. Very good blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any
    message boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable
    people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Cheers!

  187. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it
    for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from.
    appreciate it

  188. I do agree with all the concepts you have presented for
    your post. They’re very convincing and can definitely work.
    Still, the posts are too short for novices. Could you please extend
    them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

  189. Hi would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you suggest a good web hosting provider
    at a reasonable price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate
    it!

  190. Amazing blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any suggestions? Cheers!

  191. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
    It will always be exciting to read articles from other authors
    and practice a little something from their websites.

  192. Howdy! This blog post couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept talking about this. I most certainly will forward
    this information to him. Pretty sure he will have a
    great read. Thanks for sharing!

  193. Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking a few minutes
    and actual effort to make a really good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and
    never seem to get nearly anything done.

  194. I seriously love your website.. Excellent colors & theme.

    Did you build this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m attempting to create my own site and would love to know where
    you got this from or exactly what the theme is called.
    Cheers!

  195. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a
    number of websites for about a year and am nervous about
    switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about
    blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into
    it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
