Warum sind so viele Menschen immer noch nicht beunruhigt über die Zukunft unserer Erde?

Gerade lese ich das neue Buch von Naomi Klein mit dem Titel "Green Deal".

In einem Satz, den ich gerade gelesen habe, steckt so viel drin, dass ich das Buch weggelegt habe und darüber nachgedacht habe. Denn auch ich habe schon seit mehr als 10 Jahren darüber nachgedacht, warum so viele Menschen das Thema Klimaschutz gar nicht zu interessieren scheint. Sogar das Gegenteil ist der Fall. Sobald man darüber spricht, hat man den Eindruck, dass es den meisten Menschen völlig egal ist, was in der Zukunft mit der Erde passiert. Manche wollen gar nichts davon hören und scheinen sogar die bereits sichtbaren Veränderungen des Klimawandel gar nicht wahrzunehmen oder es nicht wahrnehmen zu wollen oder denken immer noch es wäre alles ganz harmlos. Weil es harmlos ist, ist es dann folglich auch nicht notwendig zu handeln. Jedenfalls nicht jetzt und sofort.

Und diejenigen, die den Ernst der Lage verstanden haben, fühlen sich oft machtlos. Was soll ich schon tun? Ob ich nun CO2 einsparen oder nicht, ändert doch fast nichts am Gesamtvolumen von CO2.

Doch es tut sich was. Es gibt zunehmend Menschen, die es gar nicht mehr aushalten nichts zu tun und mit Fridays for Future auf die Straßen gehen. Danke Greta Thunberg, dass Du diese wunderbare, nun weltweite, Bewegung gegründet hast. Danke an all die wunderbaren Menschen, die weltweit dabei sind.

Nun lese ich im Buch Green Deal folgende prägnante Worte von Naomi Klein über Greta Thunberg:


"Zudem war die Tatsache, dass andere Menschen in ihrem Leben (Klassenkameraden, Eltern, Lehrer) relativ wenig betroffen schienen, keine beruhigendes Signal für sie, wie es bei anderen Kindern ist, deren soziale Bindungen stärker sind."

Genau das ist der springende Punkt.

Nicht nur Kinder, auch Erwachsene sind nicht beunruhigt, wenn andere Menschen und Medien das Signal aussenden wenig betroffen vom Klimawandel zu sein. Alle machen so weiter, als wäre alles normal. Sie gehen ihrer Arbeit nach, fahren mit dem Auto zur Arbeit, zum Einkaufen, zu Vereinen, fahren die Kinder zur Schule. Viele Fliegen in den Urlaub und einige sind sogar beruflich oft mit dem Flugzeug unterwegs. Es wird eingekauft was man sich wünscht und für den nächsten Urlaub gespart.

Wenn
ich aus dem Fenster sehe, sehe ich die vielbefahrene 4-spurige B500 von Baden-Baden, Auto an Auto und zu Stoßzeiten auch mal ein Stau.

Es
sind gerade in diesem Moment keine Veränderungen sichtbar in meiner Umgebung. Alle oder eben die meisten machen in den meisten Dingen so weiter wie bisher und das wiederum beruhigt alle anderen. Im Fersehen, im Internet und in der Zeitung gibt es nach wie vor Werbung für alle möglichen Produkte. Auch Fahrzeuge mit hohen Verbrauch an fossilen Brennstoffen und andere klimaschädlichen Produkte werden in der Werbung immer noch in all ihren Vorzügen angepriesen. Im Internet sehe ich Angebote für die nächste Flugreise, immer noch viel billiger als Reisen mit der klimaschonenden Bahn. Fast Niemand regt sich darüber auf, es geht alles weiter seinen Weg. Es scheint ja noch alles in Ordnung zu sein. Also kann ich mich beruhigen. Alle anderen, inklusive führender Politiker, scheint es ja auch nicht zu beunruhigen. Im Gegenteil es werden noch mehr neue Megakohleminen und Kohlekraftwerke gebaut.

Nur
mich beruhigt das nicht und viele andere Menschen, die bereits aktiv sind für den Klimaschutz auch nicht. Warum ist das so?

Ich
denke es liegt daran, dass ich über mehr als 10 Jahre sehr viel über den Klimawandel gelesen und erfahren habe. Ich habe mich mit den Ursachen und möglichen Folgen beschäftigt und zwar über alle mir verfügbaren Wege.

Auf
der Basis diese Wissenstandes, Erfahrungsschatzes und vielen Gesprächen mit anderen aktiven Klimaschützern und vor allem aufgrund meinem fühlenden Inneren bin ich
sehr
irritiert, dass da draußen alles so weiter läuft wie bisher, während Menschen, Tiere und die Natur wegen der globalen Erwärmung sterben. Nein ich bin nicht nur irritiert, ich bin zutiefst beunruhigt und oft so traurig dass ich weinen muss. So weiter machen wie bisher geht einfach gar nicht, ich halte es nicht mehr aus nichts zu tun!

Doch
warum denken und handeln nicht alle so?

Das
Phänomen, dass immer noch alle so weiter machen wie bisher, scheint auch alle anderen zu beruhigen. Es wird Sicherheit wahrgenommen und so gehandelt. Es wird wahrgenommen, dass alles immer noch "normal" ist und weil all die anderen so weiter machen, wie bisher, scheint es richtig zu sein, dies auch zu tun. Diejenigen die jetzt bereits handeln sind immer noch in der Minderheit. Man nimmt zwar wahr, dass es Menschen gibt, die bereits jetzt sehr beunruhigt sind, und ist vielleicht auch schon selbst beunruhigt, aber man ignoriert dies einfach, stimmt bestenfalls noch zu, dass ihr Tun bewundernswert ist, aber tut selbst nichts. Denn in der eigenen Umgebung erhalten wir ja ständig das Signal, dass alles in Ordnung ist.

Die
Demonstrationen von Fridays for Future haben schon viel bewegt. Man hat wahrgenommen, dass es immer mehr Menschen gibt, die sehr besorgt sind über den Klimawandel. Dadurch ist schon sehr viel erreicht. Nun ist es wichtig dass die "Neue Normalität", ab sofort klimafreundlich zu handeln und eben nicht so weiter zu machen, als wäre ja alles noch in Ordnung bei allen Menschen weltweit ankommt.

Ich
wünsche mir, dass alle genau so beunruhigt sind wie ich und danach handeln, nach Lösungen suchen und viele kleine Schritte tun um das Klima zu schützen. Denn wenn genau das zur "Neuen Normalität" wird, können wir es schaffen, Hand in Hand, jeder für sich und gemeinsam weltweit, das 1,5 Grad-Ziel noch einzuhalten. Ein weiter so darf es weder im Leben der Politiker noch bei jedem Einzelnen von uns geben, denn damit gefährden wir das Überleben der gesamten Menschenheit, aller Tiere und Pflanzen!

Wie schaffen wir eine "Neue Normalität" ?

Why are so many people still not worried about the future of our earth?

I am currently reading Naomi Klein's new book entitled "Green Deal".

There is so much in one sentence that I just read that I put the book away and thought about it. Because I too have been thinking for more than 10 years about why so many people don't seem to be interested in the topic of climate protection at all. In fact, the opposite is true. As soon as you talk about it, you get the impression that most people don't care at all what happens to the earth in the future. Some people don't want to hear anything about it and even seem not to notice the already visible changes of climate change or don't want to notice it at all or still think it is all quite harmless. Because it is harmless, there is no need to act. At least not now and immediately.

And those who have understood the seriousness of the situation often feel powerless. What can I do? Whether I save CO2 or not, it changes almost nothing in the total volume of CO2.

But something is happening. There are more and more people who can't stand doing nothing and take to the streets with Fridays for Future. Thank you Greta Thunberg for founding this wonderful, now worldwide movement. Thanks to all the wonderful people who are part of it worldwide.

Now I read the following concise words from Naomi Klein about Greta Thunberg in the book Green Deal:

"In addition, the fact that other people in her life (classmates, parents, teachers) seemed to be relatively unaffected, was not a reassuring signal for her, as it is with other children whose social bonds are stronger."

That's the whole point.

Not only children, but also adults are not worried when other people and the media send out the signal that they are less affected by climate change. Everybody's going on as if everything is normal. They go about their work, drive their cars to work, go shopping, go to clubs, drive the children to school. Many fly on holiday and some even travel by plane on business. They buy what they want and save for the next holiday.

When I look out of the window, I see the busy 4-lane B500 of Baden-Baden, car to car and at rush hours sometimes a traffic jam.

At this very moment there are no visible changes in my surroundings. Everyone or just most of them continue to do most things as before and that again calms everyone else. On TV, on the internet and in the newspaper there are still advertisements for all kinds of products. Even vehicles with high consumption of fossil fuels and other climate-damaging products are still being advertised in all their advantages. On the Internet I see offers for the next flight, still much cheaper than travelling by climate-friendly train.

Almost nobody gets upset about it, everything continues to go its way. Everything still seems to be in order. So I can calm down. Everyone else, including leading politicians, doesn't seem to be worried about it. On the contrary, more new mega coal mines and coal-fired power plants are being built.

But I'm not the only one who is not worried, and neither are many other people who are already active in climate protection. Why is that so?

I think it is because I have read and learned a lot about climate change over more than 10 years. I have learned mich about the causes and possible consequences using all means at my disposal.

On the basis of this knowledge, wealth of experience and many conversations with other active climate protectors, and above all because of my innermost feelings, I amvery irritated that out there everything is going on as before, while people, animals and nature are dying because of global warming.

No I am not only irritated, I am deeply worried and often so sad that I have to cry. To go on as before is simply not possible, I can't be here anymore without doing anythingn at all!
But why doesn't everyone think and act like that?
The phenomenon that everyone is still doing as before seems to calm everyone else as well. Security is perceived and this is how it is acted. It is perceived that everything is still "normal" and because all the others are continuing as before, it seems to be right to do so. Those who are already acting now are still in the minority.
One perceives that there are people who are already very worried, and perhaps even are worried themselves, but one simply ignores this, at best still agrees that their actions are admirable, but does nothing.

After all, in our own environment we constantly receive the signal that everything is fine.

The Fridays for Future demonstrations have already made a big difference. It has been noticed that there are more and more people who are very concerned about climate change. So a lot has already been achieved.

Now it is important that the "New Normality", to act climate friendly from now on and not to continue as if everything is still fine for all people worldwide.

I wish that everyone is as concerned as I am and acts accordingly, looking for solutions and taking many small steps to protect the climate. Because if exactly this becomes the "New Normality", we can still manage, hand in hand, each for himself and together worldwide, to meet the 1.5 degree target.

There must be no more of this old nolamlity in the lives of politicians or in the lives of each and every one of us, because we are endangering the survival of all humanity, all animals and plants!

How do we create a "New Normality"?

Because I too have been thinking for more than 10 years about why so many people don't seem to be interested in the topic of climate protection at all. In fact, the opposite is true. As soon as you talk about it, you get the impression that most people don't care at all what happens to the earth in the future. Some people don't want to hear anything about it and even seem not to notice the already visible changes of climate change or don't want to notice it at all or still think it is all quite harmless. Because it is harmless, there is no need to act. At least not now and immediately.

And those who have understood the seriousness of the situation often feel powerless. What can I do? Whether I save CO2 or not, it changes almost nothing in the total volume of CO2.

But something is happening. There are more and more people who can't stand doing nothing and take to the streets with Fridays for Future. Thank you Greta Thunberg for founding this wonderful, now worldwide movement. Thanks to all the wonderful people who are part of it worldwide.

Now I read the following concise words from Naomi Klein about Greta Thunberg in the book Green Deal:

"In addition, the fact that other people in her life (classmates, parents, teachers) seemed to be relatively unaffected, was not a reassuring signal for her, as it is with other children whose social bonds are stronger."

That's the whole point.

Not only children, but also adults are worried when other people and the media send out the signal that they are less affected by climate change. Everybody's going on as if everything is normal. They go about their work, drive their cars to work, go shopping, go to clubs, drive the children to school. Many fly on holiday and some even travel by plane on business. They buy what they want and save for the next holiday.

When I look out of the window, I see the busy 4-lane B500 of Baden-Baden, car to car and at rush hours sometimes a traffic jam.

At this very moment there are no visible changes in my surroundings. Everyone or just most of them continue to do most things as before and that again calms everyone else. On TV, on the internet and in the newspaper there are still advertisements for all kinds of products. Even vehicles with high consumption of fossil fuels and other climate-damaging products are still being advertised in all their advantages. On the Internet I see offers for the next flight, still much cheaper than travelling by climate-friendly train.

Almost nobody gets upset about it, everything continues to go its way. Everything still seems to be in order. So I can calm down. Everyone else, including leading politicians, doesn't seem to be worried about it. On the contrary, more new mega coal mines and coal-fired power plants are being built.

But I'm not the only one who is not worried, and neither are many other people who are already active in climate protection. Why is that so?

I think it is because I have read and learned a lot about climate change over more than 10 years. I have learned mich about the causes and possible consequences using all means at my disposal.

On the basis of this knowledge, wealth of experience and many conversations with other active climate protectors, and above all because of my innermost feelings, I amvery irritated that out there everything is going on as before, while people, animals and nature are dying because of global warming.

No I am not only irritated, I am deeply worried and often so sad that I have to cry. To go on as before is simply not possible, I can't be here anymore without doing anythingn at all!
But why doesn't everyone think and act like that?
The phenomenon that everyone is still doing as before seems to calm everyone else as well. Security is perceived and this is how it is acted. It is perceived that everything is still "normal" and because all the others are continuing as before, it seems to be right to do so. Those who are already acting now are still in the minority.
One perceives that there are people who are already very worried, and perhaps even are worried themselves, but one simply ignores this, at best still agrees that their actions are admirable, but does nothing.

After all, in our own environment we constantly receive the signal that everything is fine.

The Fridays for Future demonstrations have already made a big difference. It has been noticed that there are more and more people who are very concerned about climate change. So a lot has already been achieved.

Now it is important that the "New Normality", to act climate friendly from now on and not to continue as if everything is still fine for all people worldwide.

I wish that everyone is as concerned as I am and acts accordingly, looking for solutions and taking many small steps to protect the climate. Because if exactly this becomes the "New Normality", we can still manage, hand in hand, each for himself and together worldwide, to meet the 1.5 degree target.

There must be no more of this old nolamlity in the lives of politicians or in the lives of each and every one of us, because we are endangering the survival of all humanity, all animals and plants!

How do we create a "New Normality"?

I have dealt with the causes and possible consequences using all means at my disposal.On the basis of this knowledge, wealth of experience and many conversations with other active climate protectors, and above all because of my innermost feelings, I amvery irritated that out there everything is going on as before, while people, animals and nature are dying because of global warming. No I am not only irritated, I am deeply worried and often so sad that I have to cry. To go on as before is simply not possible, I can't stand it anymore to do nothing at all!But why doesn't everyone think and act like that?The phenomenon that everyone is still doing as before seems to calm everyone else as well. Security is perceived and this is how it is acted. It is perceived that everything is still "normal" and because all the others are continuing as before, it seems to be right to do so. Those who are already acting now are still in the minority. One perceives that there are people who are already very worried, and perhaps even are worried themselves, but one simply ignores this, at best still agrees that their actions are admirable, but does nothing. After all, in our own environment we constantly receive the signal that everything is fine.
The
Fridays for Future demonstrations have already made a big difference. It has been noticed that there are more and more people who are very concerned about climate change. A great deal has already been achieved as a result.
Now
it is important that the "New Normality", to act climate-friendly from now on and not to continue as if everything was still fine with all people worldwide.
I
want everyone to be as concerned as I am and to act accordingly, to look for solutions and to take many small steps to protect the climate. Because if exactly this becomes the "New Normality", we can still manage, hand in hand, each for himself and together worldwide, to meet the 1.5 degree target. There must be no more of this in the lives of politicians nor in the lives of each and every one of us, because otherwise we are endangering the survival of all humanity, all animals and plants!
How
do we create a "New Normality" ?

Before :
Why are so many people still not worried about the future of our earth?
I
am currently reading Naomi Klein's new book entitled "Green Deal".
There
is so much in one sentence that I just read that I put the book away and thought about it. Because me too have been thinking for more than 10 years about why so many people don't seem to be interested in the topic of climate protection at all. In fact, the opposite is true. As soon as you talk about it, you get the impression that most people don't care at all what happens to the earth in the future. Some people don't want to hear anything about it and even seem not to notice the already visible changes of climate change or don't want to notice it at all or still think it is all quite harmless. Because it is harmless, there is no need to act.
At
least not now and immediately.
And
those who have understood the seriousness of the situation often feel powerless. What can I do? Whether I save CO2 or not, it changes almost nothing in the total volume of CO2.
But
something is happening. There are more and more people who can't stand doing nothing and take to the streets with Fridays for Future. Thank you Greta Thunberg for founding this wonderful, now worldwide movement. Thanks to all the wonderful people who are part of it worldwide.
Now
I read the following concise words from Naomi Klein about Greta Thunberg in the book Green Deal:

"In
addition, the fact that other people in her life (classmates, parents, teachers) seemed to be relatively unaffected, was not a reassuring signal for her, as it is with other children whose social bonds are stronger."
That's
the whole point.
Not
only children, but also adults are reassured when other people and media send out the signal that they are less affected by climate change. Everyone carries on as if everything is normal.
They
go about their work, drive their cars to work, go shopping, go to clubs, drive the children to school. Many fly on holiday and some even travel by plane on business. They buy what they want and save for the next holiday.
When
I look out of the window, I see the busy 4-lane B500 of Baden-Baden, car to car and at rush hours sometimes a traffic jam.
There
are no visible changes in my surroundings. Everyone or just most of them continue to do most things as before and that again calms everyone else. On TV there are still advertisements for all kinds of products. Even vehicles with high consumption of fossil fuels are still advertised in all their advantages.
In
the internet I see offers for the next flight, still much cheaper than travelling by climate-friendly train. Almost nobody gets upset about it, everything continues to go its way. Everything still seems to be in order. So I can calm down. Everyone else, including leading politicians, doesn't seem to be worried about it. On the contrary, more new mega coal mines and coal-fired power plants are being built.
But
I'm not the only one who is not worried, and neither are many other people who are already active in climate protection. Why is that so?
I
think it is because I have read and learned a lot about climate change over more than 10 years. I have learning much about the causes and possible consequences using all means at my disposal.

Warum sind so viele Menschen immer noch nicht beunruhigt über die Zukunft unserer Erde?

Gerade lese ich das neue Buch von Naomi Klein mit dem Titel "Green Deal".

In einem Satz, den ich gerade gelesen habe, steckt so viel drin, dass ich das Buch weggelegt habe und darüber nachgedacht habe. Denn auch ich habe schon seit mehr als 10 Jahren darüber nachgedacht, warum so viele Menschen das Thema Klimaschutz gar nicht zu interessieren scheint. Sogar das Gegenteil ist der Fall. Sobald man darüber spricht, hat man den Eindruck, dass es den meisten Menschen völlig egal ist, was in der Zukunft mit der Erde passiert. Manche wollen gar nichts davon hören und scheinen sogar die bereits sichtbaren Veränderungen des Klimawandel gar nicht wahrzunehmen oder es nicht wahrnehmen zu wollen oder denken immer noch es wäre alles ganz harmlos. Weil es harmlos ist, ist es dann folglich auch nicht notwendig zu handeln. Jedenfalls nicht jetzt und sofort.

Und diejenigen, die den Ernst der Lage verstanden haben, fühlen sich oft machtlos. Was soll ich schon tun? Ob ich nun CO2 einsparen oder nicht, ändert doch fast nichts am Gesamtvolumen von CO2.

Doch es tut sich was. Es gibt zunehmend Menschen, die es gar nicht mehr aushalten nichts zu tun und mit Fridays for Future auf die Straßen gehen. Danke Greta Thunberg, dass Du diese wunderbare, nun weltweite, Bewegung gegründet hast. Danke an all die wunderbaren Menschen, die weltweit dabei sind.

Nun lese ich im Buch Green Deal folgende prägnante Worte von Naomi Klein über Greta Thunberg:


"Zudem war die Tatsache, dass andere Menschen in ihrem Leben (Klassenkameraden, Eltern, Lehrer) relativ wenig betroffen schienen, keine beruhigendes Signal für sie, wie es bei anderen Kindern ist, deren soziale Bindungen stärker sind."

Genau das ist der springende Punkt.

Nicht nur Kinder, auch Erwachsene sind beunruhigt, wenn andere Menschen und Medien das Signal aussenden wenig betroffen vom Klimawandel zu sein. Alle machen so weiter, als wäre alles normal. Sie gehen ihrer Arbeit nach, fahren mit dem Auto zu Arbeit, zum Einkaufen, zu Vereinen, fahren die Kinder zur Schule. Viele Fliegen in den Urlaub und einige sind sogar beruflich oft mit dem Flugzeug unterwegs. Es wird eingekauft was man sich wünscht und für den nächsten Urlaub gespart.

Wenn ich aus dem Fenster sehe, sehe ich die vielbefahrene 4-spurige B500 von Baden-Baden, Auto an Auto und zu Stoßzeiten auch mal ein Stau.

Es sind gerade in diesem Moment keine Veränderungen sichtbar in meiner Umgebung. Alle oder eben die meisten machen in den meisten Dingen so weiter wie bisher und das wiederun beruhigt alle anderen. Im Fersehen, im Internet und in der Zeitung gibt es nach wie vor Werbung für alle möglichen Produkte. Auch Fahrzeuge mit hohen Verbrauch an fossilen Brennstoffen und andere klimaschädlichen Produkte werden in der Werbung immer noch in all ihren Vorzügen angepriesen. Im Internet sehe ich Angebote für die nächste Flugreise, immer noch viel billiger als Reisen mit der klimaschonenden Bahn. Fast Niemand regt sich darüber auf, es geht alles weiter seinen Weg. Es scheint ja noch alles in Ordnung zu sein. Also kann ich mich beruhigen. Alle anderen, inklusive führender Politiker, scheint es ja auch nicht zu beunruhigen. Im Gegenteil es werden noch mehr neue Megakohleminen und Kohlekraftwerke gebaut.

Nur
mich beruhigt das nicht und viele andere Menschen, die bereits aktiv sind für den Klimaschutz auch nicht. Warum ist das so?

Ich denke es liegt daran, dass ich über mehr als 10 Jahre sehr viel über den Klimawandel gelesen und erfahren habe. Ich habe mich mit den Ursachen und möglichen Folgen beschäftigt und zwar über alle mir verfügbaren Wege.

Auf der Basis diese Wissenstandes, Erfahrungsschatzes und vielen Gesprächen mit anderen aktiven Klimaschützern und vor allem aufgrund meinem fühlenden Inneren bin ich
sehr
irritiert, dass da draußen alles so weiter läuft wie bisher, während Menschen, Tiere und die Natur wegen der globalen Erwärmung sterben. Nein ich bin nicht nur irritiert, ich bin zutiefst beunruhigt und oft so traurig dass ich weinen muss. So weiter machen wie bisher geht einfach gar nicht, ich halte es nicht mehr aus nichts zu tun!

Doch
warum denken und handeln nicht alle so?

Das Phänomen, dass immer noch alle so weiter machen wie bisher, scheint auch alle anderen zu beruhigen. Es wird Sicherheit wahrgenommen und so gehandelt. Es wird wahrgenommen, dass alles immer noch "normal" ist und weil all die anderen so weiter machen, wie bisher, scheint es richtig zu sein, dies auch zu tun. Diejenigen die jetzt bereits handeln sind immer noch in der Minderheit. Man nimmt zwar wahr, dass es Menschen gibt, die bereits jetzt sehr beunruhigt sind, und ist vielleicht auch schon selbst beunruhigt, aber man ignoriert dies einfach, stimmt bestenfalls noch zu, dass ihr Tun bewundernswert ist, aber tut selbst nichts. Denn in der eigenen Umgebung erhalten wir ja ständig das Signal, dass alles in Ordnung ist.

Die
Demonstrationen von Fridays for Future haben schon viel bewegt. Man hat wahrgenommen, dass es immer mehr Menschen gibt, die sehr besorgt sind über den Klimawandel. Dadurch ist schon sehr viel erreicht. Nun ist es wichtig dass die "Neue Normalität", ab sofort klimafreundlich zu handeln und eben nicht so weiter zu machen, als wäre ja alles noch in Ordnung bei allen Menschen weltweit ankommt.

Ich
wünsche mir, dass alle genau so beunruhigt sind wie ich und danach handeln, nach Lösungen suchen und viele kleine Schritte tun um das Klima zu schützen. Denn wenn genau das zur "Neuen Normalität" wird, können wir es schaffen, Hand in Hand, jeder für sich und gemeinsam weltweit, das 1,5 Grad-Ziel noch einzuhalten. Ein weiter so darf es weder im Leben der Politiker noch bei jedem Einzelnen von uns geben, denn damit gefährden wir das Überleben der gesamten Menschenheit, aller Tiere und Pflanzen!

Wie
schaffen wir eine "Neue Normalität" ?

There must be no more of this in the lives of politicians nor in the lives of each and every one of us, because otherwise we are endangering the survival of all humanity, all animals and plants!
How
do we create a "New Normality" ?

Before :
Why are so many people still not worried about the future of our earth?
I am currently reading Naomi Klein's new book entitled "Green Deal".There is so much in one sentence that I just read that I put the book away and thought about it. Because I too have been thinking for more than 10 years about why so many people don't seem to be interested in the topic of climate protection at all. In fact, the opposite is true. As soon as you talk about it, you get the impression that most people don't care at all what happens to the earth in the future. Some people don't want to hear anything about it and even seem not to notice the already visible changes of climate change or don't want to notice it at all or still think it is all quite harmless. Because it is harmless, there is no need to act. At least not now and immediately.And those who have understood the seriousness of the situation often feel powerless. What can I do? Whether I save CO2 or not, it changes almost nothing in the total volume of CO2.But something is happening. There are more and more people who can't stand doing nothing and take to the streets with Fridays for Future. Thank you Greta Thunberg for founding this wonderful, now worldwide movement. Thanks to all the wonderful people who are part of it worldwide.Now I read the following concise words from Naomi Klein about Greta Thunberg in the book Green Deal:"In addition, the fact that other people in her life (classmates, parents, teachers) seemed to be relatively unaffected, was not a reassuring signal for her, as it is with other children whose social bonds are stronger."That's the whole point.Not only children, but also adults are reassured when other people and media send out the signal that they are less affected by climate change. Everyone carries on as if everything is normal. They go about their work, drive their cars to work, go shopping, go to clubs, drive the children to school. Many fly on holiday and some even travel by plane on business. They buy what they want and save for the next holiday.When I look out of the window, I see the busy 4-lane B500 of Baden-Baden, car to car and at rush hours sometimes a traffic jam.There are no visible changes in my surroundings. Everyone or just most of them continue to do most things as before and that again calms everyone else. On TV there are still advertisements for all kinds of products. Even vehicles with high consumption of fossil fuels are still advertised in all their advantages. On the internet I see offers for the next flight, still much cheaper than travelling by climate-friendly train. Almost nobody gets upset about it, everything continues to go its way. Everything still seems to be in order. So I can calm down. Everyone else, including leading politicians, doesn't seem to be worried about it. On the contrary, more new mega coal mines and coal-fired power plants are being built.But I'm not the only one who is not worried, and neither are many other people who are already active in climate protection. Why is that so?I think it is because I have read and learned a lot about climate change over more than 10 years. I have dealt with the causes and possible consequences using all means at my disposal.On the basis of this knowledge, wealth of experience and many discussions with other active climate protectors, I amvery irritated that out there everything is going on as before, while people, animals and nature are dying because of global warming. No I am not only irritated, I am deeply worried and often so sad that I have to cry. To go on as before is simply not possible, I can't stand it anymore to do nothing at all!But why doesn't everyone think and act like that?The phenomenon that everyone is still doing as before seems to calm everyone else as well. Security is perceived and this is how it is acted. It is perceived that everything is still "normal" and because all the others are continuing as before, it seems to be right to do so. Those who are already acting now are still in the minority. It is perceived that there are people who are already very worried, but just ignore them, at best still agree that their actions are admirable, but do nothing themselves. After all, in our own environment we constantly receive the signal that everything is fine.The Fridays for Future demonstrations have already made a big difference. It has been noticed that there are more and more people who are very concerned about climate change. A great deal has already been achieved as a result.Now it is important that the "New Normality", to act climate-friendly from now on and not to continue as if everything was still fine with all people worldwide.I want everyone to be as concerned as I am and to act accordingly, to look for solutions and to take many small steps to protect the climate. Because if exactly this becomes the "New Normality", we can still manage, hand in hand, each for himself and together worldwide, to meet the 1.5 degree target.

How worried are you? Do you really see yourself and your children in danger because of climate change?

And in such a way that you see yourself forced to act immediately and directly to protect your life and the lives of your children? No, not so direct and immediate? Why actually not?

Why are so many people still not worried about the future of our earth?I am currently reading Naomi Klein's new book entitled "Green Deal".There is so much in one sentence that I just read that I put the book away and thought about it. Because I too have been thinking for more than 10 years about why so many people don't seem to be interested in the topic of climate protection at all. In fact, the opposite is true. As soon as you talk about it, you get the impression that most people don't care at all what happens to the earth in the future. Some people don't want to hear anything about it and even seem not to notice the already visible changes of climate change or don't want to notice it at all or still think it is all quite harmless. Because it is harmless, there is no need to act. At least not now and immediately.And those who have understood the seriousness of the situation often feel powerless. What can I do? Whether I save CO2 or not, it changes almost nothing in the total volume of CO2.But something is happening. There are more and more people who can't stand doing nothing and take to the streets with Fridays for Future. Thank you Greta Thunberg for founding this wonderful, now worldwide movement. Thanks to all the wonderful people who are part of it worldwide.Now I read the following concise words from Naomi Klein about Greta Thunberg in the book Green Deal:"In addition, the fact that other people in her life (classmates, parents, teachers) seemed to be relatively unaffected, was not a reassuring signal for her, as it is with other children whose social bonds are stronger."That's the whole point.Not only children, but also adults are reassured when other people and media send out the signal that they are less affected by climate change. Everyone carries on as if everything is normal. They go about their work, drive their cars to work, go shopping, go to clubs, drive the children to school. Many fly on holiday and some even travel by plane on business. They buy what they want and save for the next holiday.When I look out of the window, I see the busy 4-lane B500 of Baden-Baden, car to car and at rush hours sometimes a traffic jam.There are no visible changes in my surroundings. Everyone or just most of them continue to do most things as before and that again calms everyone else. On TV there are still advertisements for all kinds of products. Even vehicles with high consumption of fossil fuels are still advertised in all their advantages. On the internet I see offers for the next flight, still much cheaper than travelling by climate-friendly train. Almost nobody gets upset about it, everything continues to go its way. Everything still seems to be in order. So I can calm down. Everyone else, including leading politicians, doesn't seem to be worried about it. On the contrary, more new mega coal mines and coal-fired power plants are being built.But I'm not the only one who is not worried, and neither are many other people who are already active in climate protection. Why is that so?I think it is because I have read and learned a lot about climate change over more than 10 years. I have dealt with the causes and possible consequences using all means at my disposal.On the basis of this knowledge, wealth of experience and many discussions with other active climate protectors, I amvery irritated that out there everything is going on as before, while people, animals and nature are dying because of global warming. No I am not only irritated, I am deeply worried and often so sad that I have to cry. To go on as before is simply not possible, I can't stand it anymore to do nothing at all!But why doesn't everyone think and act like that?The phenomenon that everyone is still doing as before seems to calm everyone else as well. Security is perceived and this is how it is acted. It is perceived that everything is still "normal" and because all the others are continuing as before, it seems to be right to do so. Those who are already acting now are still in the minority. It is perceived that there are people who are already very worried, but just ignore them, at best still agree that their actions are admirable, but do nothing themselves. After all, in our own environment we constantly receive the signal that everything is fine.The Fridays for Future demonstrations have already made a big difference.

Warum sind so viele Menschen immer noch nicht beunruhigt über die Zukunft unserer Erde?

Gerade lese ich das neue Buch von Naomi Klein mit dem Titel "Green Deal".

In einem Satz, den ich gerade gelesen habe, steckt so viel drin, dass ich das Buch weggelegt habe und darüber nachgedacht habe. Denn auch ich habe schon seit mehr als 10 Jahren darüber nachgedacht, warum so viele Menschen das Thema Klimaschutz gar nicht zu interessieren scheint. Sogar das Gegenteil ist der Fall. Sobald man darüber spricht, hat man den Eindruck, dass es den meisten Menschen völlig egal ist, was in der Zukunft mit der Erde passiert. Manche wollen gar nichts davon hören und scheinen sogar die bereits sichtbaren Veränderungen des Klimawandel gar nicht wahrzunehmen oder es nicht wahrnehmen zu wollen oder denken immer noch es wäre alles ganz harmlos. Weil es harmlos ist, ist es dann folglich auch nicht notwendig zu handeln. Jedenfalls nicht jetzt und sofort.

Und diejenigen, die den Ernst der Lage verstanden haben, fühlen sich oft machtlos. Was soll ich schon tun? Ob ich nun CO2 einsparen oder nicht, ändert doch fast nichts am Gesamtvolumen von CO2.

Doch es tut sich was. Es gibt zunehmend Menschen, die es gar nicht mehr aushalten nichts zu tun und mit Fridays for Future auf die Straßen gehen. Danke Greta Thunberg, dass Du diese wunderbare, nun weltweite, Bewegung gegründet hast. Danke an all die wunderbaren Menschen, die weltweit dabei sind.

Nun lese ich im Buch Green Deal folgende prägnante Worte von Naomi Klein über Greta Thunberg:


"Zudem war die Tatsache, dass andere Menschen in ihrem Leben (Klassenkameraden, Eltern, Lehrer) relativ wenig betroffen schienen, keine beruhigendes Signal für sie, wie es bei anderen Kindern ist, deren soziale Bindungen stärker sind."

Genau das ist der springende Punkt.

Nicht nur Kinder, auch Erwachsene sind beruhigt, wenn andere Menschen und Medien das Signal aussenden wenig betroffen vom Klimawandel zu sein. Alle machen so weiter, als wäre alles normal. Sie gehen ihrer Arbeit nach, fahren mit dem Auto zu Arbeit, zum Einkaufen, zu Vereinen, fahren die Kinder zur Schule. Viele Fliegen in den Urlaub und einige sind sogar beruflich oft mit dem Flugzeug unterwegs. Es wird eingekauft was man sich wünscht und für den nächsten Urlaub gespart.

Wenn ich aus dem Fenster sehe, sehe ich die vielbefahrene 4-spurige B500 von Baden-Baden, Auto an Auto und zu Stoßzeiten auch mal ein Stau.

Es
sind keine Veränderungen sichtbar in meiner Umgebung. Alle oder eben die meisten machen in den meisten Dingen so weiter wie bisher und das wiederun beruhigt alle anderen. Im Fersehen gibt es nach wie vor Werbung für alle möglichen Produkte. Auch Fahrzeuge mit hohen Verbrauch an fossilen Brennstoffen werden in der Werbung immer noch in all ihren Vorzügen angepriesen. Im Internet sehe ich Angebote für die nächste Flugreise, immer noch viel billiger als Reisen mit der klimaschonenden Bahn. Fast Niemand regt sich darüber auf, es geht alles weiter seinen Weg. Es scheint ja noch alles in Ordnung zu sein. Also kann ich mich beruhigen. Alle anderen, inklusive führender Politiker, scheint es ja auch nicht zu beunruhigen. Im Gegenteil es werden noch mehr neue Megakohleminen und Kohlekraftwerke gebaut.

Nur mich beruhigt das nicht und viele andere Menschen, die bereits aktiv sind für den Klimaschutz auch nicht. Warum ist das so?

Ich denke es liegt daran, dass ich über mehr als 10 Jahre sehr viel über den Klimawandel gelesen und erfahren habe. Ich habe mich mit den Ursachen und möglichen Folgen beschäftigt und zwar über alle mir verfügbaren Wege.

Auf der Basis diese Wissenstandes, Erfahrungsschatzes und vielen Gesprächen mit anderen aktiven Klimaschützern bin ich
sehr irritiert, dass da draußen alles so weiter läuft wie bisher, während Menschen, Tiere und die Natur wegen der globalen Erwärmung sterben. Nein ich bin nicht nur irritiert, ich bin zutiefst beunruhigt und oft so traurig dass ich weinen muss. So weiter machen wie bisher geht einfach gar nicht, ich halte es nicht mehr aus nichts zu tun!

Doch
warum denken und handeln nicht alle so?

Das
Phänomen, dass immer noch alle so weiter machen wie bisher, scheint auch alle anderen zu beruhigen. Es wird Sicherheit wahrgenommen und so gehandelt. Es wird wahrgenommen, dass alles immer noch "normal" ist und weil all die anderen so weiter machen, wie bisher, scheint es richtig zu sein, dies auch zu tun. Diejenigen die jetzt bereits handeln sind immer noch in der Minderheit. Man nimmt zwar wahr, dass es Menschen gibt, die bereits jetzt sehr beunruhigt sind, aber ignoriert sie einfach, stimmt bestenfalls noch zu, dass ihr Tun bewundernswert ist, aber tut selbst nichts. Denn in der eigenen Umgebung erhalten wir ja ständig das Signal, dass alles in Ordnung ist.

Die
Demonstrationen von Fridays for Future haben schon viel bewegt. Man hat wahrgenommen, dass es immer mehr Menschen gibt, die sehr besorgt sind über den Klimawandel. Dadurch ist schon sehr viel erreicht. Nun ist es wichtig dass die "Neue Normalität", ab sofort klimafreundlich zu handeln und eben nicht so weiter zu machen, als wäre ja alles noch in Ordnung bei allen Menschen weltweit ankommt.

Ich
möchte, dass alle genau so beunruhigt sind wie ich und danach handeln, nach Lösungen suchen und viele kleine Schritte tun um das Klima zu schützen. Denn wenn genau das zur "Neuen Normalität" wird, können wir es schaffen, Hand in Hand, jeder für sich und gemeinsam weltweit, das 1,5 Grad-Ziel noch einzuhalten. Ein weiter so darf es weder im Leben der Politiker noch bei jedem Einzelnen von uns geben, denn damit gefährden wir das Überleben der gesamten Menschenheit, aller Tiere und Pflanzen!

Wie schaffen wir eine "Neue Normalität" ?
