Climate Change Impasse:

Time for a paradigm shift

About the Book

Climate Change Impasse: Time for a Paradigm Shift provides a framework for understanding the benefits of taking personal action even when the impact seems insignificant. This book will empower you to take action even when progress seems slow and difficult.

We want to feel we can make a worthwhile contribution to our society’s future. We want to feel we have control over our future. And we want positive feelings about the direction of the current debate about climate change.

This book is built around the concept that building a better future means we need to see ourselves differently. However, this new look is not just about developing a different perspective on reality. Having greater self awareness is linked to developing positive attitudes because positive attitudes help build empowerment.

This book looks at ways to improve your self awareness, starting with learning to understand who you are. The book concludes with a look at some of the other steps that can be taken to support the goal of gaining control of our future, from taking actions consistent with reducing greenhouse gas emissions to raising public awareness about what needs to be done to raise the quality of debate about climate change.  Even the choices you make about what you believe about the nature of the world you live in could have an impact on understanding your self.
