Climate Change: the brain paradox

Written by Sylvie Deleule & Raphaël Hitier, directed by Raphaël Hitier


Based on the original idea of Olivier De Schutter & Nicolas Saydé

Synopsis

We have never been so aware of the risk of collapse due to climate change. And yet, it seems we are unable to make the collective change the situation seems to demand.
How can we explain our collective inertia in the face of the ongoing environmental crisis? Why can’t our brain process global warming?
This scientific investigation decodes the behavioral mechanisms which explain this collective "schizophrenia" through eye-opening experiences.
With a comprehensible approach, the latest advances in neuroscience, behavioral psychology and anthropology will reveal the surprising cognitive bias, contradictions, and fears we harbor when it comes to changing our lifestyles, and may even help us to overcome them.
