Sally Weintrobe | Climate Breakdown Shakedown – Climate Grief | Extinction Rebellion UK

Sally Weintrobe speaks to XR Greenwich on the topic of Climate Grief.

“Most of us have been living in a bubble of disavowal about global heating”, Sally Weintrobe writes. “We were aware it was happening, but we minimized its impacts. What might people be feeling as they emerge from the climate bubble?”

No-one is better qualified to discuss these questions than Sally, a founder member of the Climate Psychology Alliance and chair of the International Psychoanalytic Association’s Climate Committee, whose new book, Psychological Roots of the Climate Crisis: Neoliberal Exceptionalism and the Culture of Uncare, has just been published.

“Climate Breakdown Shakedown” is an ongoing series of talks from guest experts on a variety of topics relating to the climate and ecological emergency.
