Why Little is Done About Climate Change
In 205, only 0.2% of the US’s GDP was invested in renewable energy (source). Why?
The market always does what is cheap and simple.
We would collectively be better off if we took the necessary measures to fight Climate Change, but for each CEO, politician, and lobbyist with the power to make the change, they are better off if they maintain the status quo.
- This is the same reason we struggle with Consistency. Whenever we are faced with the choice of whether of whether or not to skip the gym in favour of studying, it is most likely a better immediate choice to do so. However, like with climate change, we need to force ourselves to take immediate action in favour of our collective wellbeing.
