Far too much of the public discourse around climate change has been driven by the concept of climate denial. As a result, most of the news stories the average person reads about the climate crisis is about the people who deny it and the people who mock them for denying. I have a feeling we are moving into a post-climate denial period at last. But it is important to take a look at climate denial.
Here at Climate Stew we don’t like mocking anyone. In fact, Marvin Bloom, one of our regular correspondents, has taken a serious look at the issue of climate denial and has developed a theory. In fact, he feels a lot of hope about climate skeptics, believing they are closer to acting than most may imagine. Drawing on the Kubler-Ross Stages of Grief, in this short monologue, Marvin humorously sheds light on the serious issue of climate denial.
