Why is the question “Why does humanity take one of the most important questions in its history, not seriously enough?”, is not taken seriously by humanity dancing on the Titanic?Is it because the question is not entertaining enough, or that reflection does too much work?
What is certain is that “humanity” does not exist … and then, paradoxically, it should be caught by humanity when it comes to costs … but fun and black-seeing aside, the matter is already too serious for that.
- It may catch us earlier than the climate scientists predicted, namely already and violently in the next .. 10 years.
With a very violent subject. Eating insects instead of meat? A past theme. One that is also due to man-made environmental changes: Insect deaths: The global insect collapse | spectrum of science.By the way, this does not only mean bees alone … :
Through private measures, we can no longer stop what is to come. We must therefore address the question of why politics, the media, industry and agriculture have so far been so unsuccessfullysuccessful.In order to learn from this, to set the necessary processes in full or tomuch more to accelerate …
Probably the exact “Why didn’t you do anything about it back then?” among the questions that future historians may examine in 50 to 100 years …
When I look at this subject in more detail, I notice how few people are aware of the obvious lack of results and inaction so far (most recently: greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere reach peak),not with the obvious the most important question: namely, what exactly is this that makes us behave like lemmings?That politics seems to think much else is more important than protecting us against climate change?
- how and why a silent majority, one confirmation after another for the predictions of climate scientists, seems to be able to take note of dancing on the Titanic ?
- where the demonstrations of the hundreds of thousands of outraged people on the streets are finally showing their governments the red card because of their non-action and counter-activity (see lignite mining) ?
- Shouldn’t this not appear as the question of all questions, because their non-answering can and will probably threaten humanity the most?
Many reasons have already been given for this paradoxical behavior of a genus that obviously makes itself obsolescent.But all these attempts at explanation are ultimately also sick because they have obviously not been able to change this behavior so far.
Can it be the transfer of knowledge?By answering the question is climate change really?, I showed that rare, not very widespread prior knowledge is needed in order to actually understand the reasoning of the researchers of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in their own basic seam. to be able to.So is it also an education issue?
It is often argued that the knowledge of the importance of warming is too abstract, that people only notice it when they have driven themselves to the wall, when the suffering is already physically and very clearly and strongly noticeable, that only then does they notice something about their behaviour. change.
That, consequently, our genes and our brains are not prepared to deal with tasks whose reasons lie in the future, and which have not yet occurred in the evolutionary history of man, and therefore no reactivateable genetic ‘memories’.
“Themost pressing problem we have in the world is the depth structure of our brain,” the philosopher Thomas Metzinger laconically states.Because it is our Stone Age orPrimate brain, which is afraid ofstrangers, finds security in its own group, needs a strong leader and does not see through complex relationships.And the human impact on the climate and the environment is truly a complex context. It also has “no instinct for mass cooperation.”” (Source: J眉rgen Beetz in an interview)
Long speech in short sense: I fear that is the answer to why we are currently running into what is likely to be the greatest catastrophe of mankind in at least the last 10,000 years, similar to lemmings: our thinking apparatus is obviously blessed with incomplete perceptions and errors of thought that give us the wrong signals. He is overloaded with what we consciously or unconsciously want, and does not see what is. We are therefore blind in important areas. And foolish to stay in the picture, quite simply because of the delusional illusion of how exactly what we wanted got into the abyss.
In short: we act and think grotesquely too limited !
