Sally Weintrobe: Climate Psychology and the struggle to care

Nick Breeze

Nick Breeze

Climate journalist and host of the ClimateGenn podcast.

In this ClimateGenn episode I am speaking with author and member of the Climate Psychology Alliance, Sally Weintrobe. 

We discuss underlying mental processes ranging from Narcissistic entitlement, to profound caring. These form the individual and collective conflicts that society is wrestling with in responding to the climate and ecological crisis.

Sally’s book, ‘The Psychological roots Of The Climate Crisis’ is available here.

Thanks to all members and subscribers for supporting this work. There is a great deal more interviews to record and to process and your support is vital.

Sally is also quoted in my book COPOUT that is available now for preorder. I discuss the failure of governments to act in the last three decades of climate conferences that have passed by and highlight the changing themes that are dominating the current rounds of climate talks. 

This year will also mark the first COP where Professor Saleemul Huq will not be present. Saleem died last month, leaving a legacy of clear thinking, relentless action and calling out the people, governments and corporations pushing us all into catastrophe. He has featured in many of my interviews and been a significant influence and inspiration in my work over the last decade.

A clip with Saleem from COP23 BonFiji in 2017:

Thanks again for listening.
