Transcriber:

I grew up in Australia’s
Tropical North Queensland,

fishing frogs from the toilet

and dodging snakes
that hung from the ceiling.

Wetting down old sea turtles
stranded at low tide outside our house.

I spent more time outside than in,

delighting in the wonders of nature.

By age 11, I wasn’t allowed
to watch horror films,

so I turned to documentaries instead.

“The Cove,” “Food, Inc,”
“An Inconvenient Truth.”

The first time I experienced heartbreak

was when I sat glued
to my computer screen,

staring at mass dolphin hunts
that turned the shoreline red.

Staring as million-year-old forests
were bulldozed to produce Big Macs,

staring as Al Gore projected graphs

that showed how quickly
we were devouring the Earth.

And how good we were
at pretending otherwise.

The second time I experienced heartbreak
was in November of 2019,

as I watched my country go up in flames.

As one billion animals
were incinerated by the inferno.

As friends tried to rescue their homes,

poised on tin roofs,

armed with hoses until the smoke
and embers clung to their clothes.

I felt despair.

Grief.

Frustration.

Fury.

And staring at that wall of fire

higher and more ferocious
than any I’d seen before,

I felt helpless,

small,

powerless to stop the flames,

powerless to protect the place I love.

Australia’s black summer was soon followed
by the firestorm in California

as their summer rolled around,

as well as flooding in Jakarta
that displaced 100,000 people.

More violent hurricanes
along the east coast of America

and biblical plagues of locusts
that threaten the food supply

for millions of people in East Africa.

Young people today
have not created this reality.

We’ve inherited it.

Yet we’re told where the last generation

with a chance to save
the fate of humanity.

Is it any wonder that there is an epidemic
of mental health problems?

Eco-anxiety is on the rise

and young people seem to be
some of the worst affected.

Research from 2019 showed that in the UK,

70 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds
were feeling eco-anxious,

feeling helpless, grief, panic, insomnia,

even guilt around climate change.

Environmental disaster is the biggest
mental health issue of our lifetimes

and in our war against nature
young minds are the collateral damage.

At my own organization, Force of Nature,

we’ve witnessed the same
on a global scale.

We’ve been talking to students
in over 50 countries

from Tel Aviv through Jakarta,

New York to Managua.

All of them have shared
this existential dread

that keeps them up at night.

Dread not only fueled by doom scrolling,

but by the belief that adults,

especially adults in power, do not care.

When I first discovered documentaries,

I decided the world was run by people
who were selfish and greedy,

that the rest of society didn’t care.

That we humans were a plague
on our own planet.

I’ve since spent the past 10 years
lobbying decision makers across business,

policy and civil society,

working with students in the classroom

and chief executives in the boardroom,

and I can tell you that my bleak outlook,

while in some ways right,

was in more ways very, very wrong.

Picture yourself as a senior executive
at a big multinational.

In the 25 years you’ve been climbing
that corporate ladder,

you’ve been told your job is to make money

and maintain the status quo,

to deliver value to shareholders,

to avoid the kind of risks
that could cost you your job.

You recycle.

You share climate change
articles on LinkedIn.

You even went vegetarian two years ago,

after watching a documentary
on mass farming.

Yet when you come home
at the end of the day,

you get the sense that your kids
see you as the problem.

They wish you were
the climate change protester

gluing themselves to the glass tower,

not the person sat inside the building.

When I first started working
with people in power,

I was surprised to realize

that they often felt
the least powerful of all,

and most of these leaders
perform mental gymnastics

to get away from those
uncomfortable feelings.

Young people today
are falling into despair

while the adults in our lives
are making sense of the situation

through denial.

When I ask leaders to describe
the future they envision,

it’s something of a techno utopia.

Flying cars in a world
where deadly diseases are eradicated.

Yet when I asked eight and nine-year-olds
in the classroom the same question,

the future they describe
is a dystopian blockbuster.

Empty supermarket shelves.

Cities underwater.

The kind of place no one wants
to find waiting for them

when they grow up.

You might find comfort in denial.

Numbing yourself to our
hyper-consumptive culture, sleepwalking,

even though the science tells us
that we’re hurtling toward the cliff.

You might feel despair,
like so many of my generation.

Because while feelings
of anxiety, frustration, anger,

can wake us up to the issues,

they can crush us if we carry the weight
of the world on our shoulders.

Neither despair nor denial help anyone.

They cause us to shut down,

to remove ourselves from the picture.

Denial erases our responsibility.

Despair lumps us with all of it.

The story of denial sounds something like,

“It’s not up to me,
because someone else will fix it.”

The story of despair sounds like,

“It’s not up to me
because it’s too big to fix.”

Do you hear the similarity?

Despair and denial might appear
to exist on polar ends

of the generational spectrum,

yet they stem from the same place.

How powerless we feel.

All of us.

I believe that the threat,
even greater than climate change,

is how powerless we feel
in the face of it,

concerned moms and dads,

cautious corporate leaders,

anxious 11-year-olds.

And I don’t believe
we will solve this crisis

or act on the many opportunities
it presents us with

until we’ve mobilized mindsets.

So how do we shift out of despair,

out of denial, towards something
radically different?

There’s a quote in “Spider-Man”:

“With great power
comes great responsibility.”

Yet what if the opposite is true?

What if it’s really “with great
responsibility comes great power?”

This is something that all
of the world’s movers and shakers

have known to be true.

They weren’t born leaders.

They simply decided to make themselves
personally responsible.

Now, solving climate change
is not your responsibility

because it’s outside of your control.

What you are responsible for

is the thing inside your control,

indeed, the only thing
that has ever been inside your control.

Your mindset.

We all have stories running on repeat,

stories that immobilize us,

stories the world impresses upon us
in boardrooms and classrooms alike.

“I’m just one in 7.8 billion people,

I’m too small to make a difference.”

“I’m not smart enough.”

“I don’t have the experience.”

“I’m not the expert.”

“The system is too broken,

our leaders too shortsighted,

our society too shackled
to the status quo.”

These stories paralyze us.

Rewriting them is the single
most powerful thing anyone of us can do

for the planet and for ourselves.

Now ask yourself.

Which story gets in the way
of you taking action?

Then think of the one thing you could do
to challenge that story.

If your story is
that you’re not smart enough,

you could challenge it
by focusing on the skills and talents

and gifts that you bring to the table.

If fashion is your passion,

how do we reimagine our relationship
with clothes to be fully circular?

If you love making food,

how do we stop a third of it
from being wasted every single day?

If you’re a talented musician,

how do we communicate
the urgency of climate action

through a universal language?

If your story is
that the system is too broken,

the problem is too big to fix,

visualize what it would look like
for you to focus on a single problem.

The climate crisis is the symptom
of many interconnected problems,

from food waste to fast fashion,

social inequality to how we’ve divorced
ourselves from nature.

Every problem requires a solution.

A solution delivered by a someone,

like you.

When you look back on your own life,

what do you want to see?

Will you have chosen despair, denial,

or something different?

Will you have been a spectator
to our planet’s problems

or the person who did
something to fix them?

What will your story be?

    We CAN’T stop climate change. Climate has been changing since forever and even if humans didn’t exist the current tendency is global warming. What we CAN do is to live in a more sustainable way so we don’t contribute to accelerate these changes.

    What to do? Give up. We are incapable as a species of even agreeing on what our problems are. Forget…..like put it out of your mind completely….that there is any chance of solving any major problem facing the human species. While there are individuals capable of conceiving solutions, as a species we are no different than any other simple animal and will never overcome the basic function of an animal in nature. We are to multiply as much as possible. Simple as that. Pure instinct and it will never change. Nature will always provide a balancing effect but it won’t be pretty or fun. It will be starvation, famine, war, and disease. It just isn’t natural for any animal to pre-empt nature (obvious as it may seem) by finding balance ourselves so it won’t happen. Hope that brightened everyone’s Monday.

      Overpopulation isn’t actually the main problem just yet, and probably won’t be even down the line. Birth rates fall with education for women and access to contraception. GHG emissions per capita are more of the problem than the raw number of people at this point.

    Climate change is unstoppable. We are experiencing on Earth right now a magnetic field that is completely breaking apart. Google “Earth’s magnetic field” and you will see articles from reputable science publications on the severity of our collapsing magnetic field. This had happened on Earth before many times according to core samples. Our magnetic field will weaken before a magnetic polar shift…in which the North and the South poles on Earth flip. This flip happens to our Sun every 11 years or so. If you Google you will see scientists believe we are preparing for a shift on Earth. Many studies have shown that before the shift there is major climate change on Earth. Our magnetic fields are responsible for the jet streams and temperatures here on Earth. Our deteriorating magnetic field is the reason our climate is changing…if you Google you will also see that climate change is happening on Mars, Jupiter, Neptune etc. This is a repeating cosmic event we are going through….it can’t be stopped. That is not to say that we have not trashed the Earth and damaged our water supply. We must make plans to deal with what the Earth is about to go through.

    There’s climate change and then there’s raping the environment of its animals. So a week ago a miner found a frozen wolf from 55000 years ago. I mean this isn’t a glacier and it’s not in the subduction zone and even if it was fifty-five thousand years is not long enough. So how did it get there do they have Frozen wolves and live wolves?

    Be the change you want to see. Australia’s Redflow batteries are part of the solution yet your own government basically Ignores them.
    I’m going to install them soon as they get UL approved. I installed a solar array and because of that at least three of my neighbors did the same. Unfortunately the word exponential is lost on most folks and that’s where we are now everything in compounding daily. I believe I am doing everything I can, but without the help of every day people elect ing climate champions….

    Just added this to my motivation list, hopefully listening to this everyday and night will change my unhelpful mindset of wanting to be perfect in doing a lot of big things quickly. I get this thinking so much, I’ve naturally decided to not take any action at all with all the overthinking.

    Thanks for this 👍, over the past few years I’ve been so obsessed with climate research, I drove myself to burnout before I even realized it. It has been so easy to feel like a spectator rather than a person making impact. Though the thing is I do know how to make impact, it’s just that perfectionism gets in the way, and so I have been taking action to get rid of it by learning how to allow myself to do imperfect things and taking risks, and learning how to enjoy that.

    I was just about to play Minecraft, an experience that feels like living on earth except you can’t “destroy” it with animal agriculture and coal burning, as a coping mechanism, but today I’ll do something more productive instead as a result of this video, like reading something from Drawdown or PlantBasedData.

    Thanks again 👍, you’ve given me motivation. Also Force of Nature is very interesting, might think about using that someday.

    The way people forget about anything makes me conclude that it would be an impossible fight if we are still going at it with the same senses, habits, incentives, and most importantly, the daily structures, infrastructures, and superstructures that are constantly enforcing the habit of not giving a fcuk. It would be also intuitive to create a modern society merged with the principles of sustainability, biomimicry, effective utilization of wholistic sciences, with free education, medical needs, permaculture principles & wholistic agricultural sciences for sustainable food, and UBI. But unmanaged ego, tribalism, and selfish principles impede such prototype society that should ignite the true 4th Industrial Revolution. And here we are just doing the same things in sustaining the status quo, the same docility, the routinal population control, the edging of vast resolves that results to none, the lock-stepped usurpations, and the same saber rattling until who knows if whether a huge amount of economic, societal, and environmental collapse should be the concluding nail if whether we’ll make it or reset ourselves all over again. So for now I’ll just meditate, consume the minimum amount of resources as possible, and probably just let the planet do its natural movements while the ever-forgetful, relaxed, and humancentric society extinct itself.

      It even harder to get an entire planet of people who are taught to want more, while trying to make sure they have less.
      Every human has to change at the same time, I am glad to be at the age where I have enough years to be a witness to the end of life or the way that the we save the life.

    Mental issues surrounding climate change are in part thanks to those spouting the world is going to end very very soon. The message for a better human future should be along the lines of, make a few small changes in your life, be happy, and others will follow. Trying to turn round an entire race of people globally is sheer madness and asking for trouble.

    “I believe that the threat even greater than climate change is how powerlessness we ‘feel’ in the face of it.”

    Are you serious? “Hey the world is burning and society is projected to collapse by 2040, but I think your problem is your mindset.”

    This is how the world ends. Not with a bang, nor with a whimper, but the lack of a positive mindset.

      Yes! Mindset of rampant greed and runaway egotistical consumerism.

    She keeps to referring to the people in power as “adults”. Does she not realise she is a fully grown adult too? She says 16-24 year olds are worried about climate change? No, we aren’t.

    The world is going to be fine. Let’s not forget, these scientists said the planet will be under water by the year 2000.

      @Bernardo Fitzpatrick the effect the changing magnetic forces of the sun are on show. The world has been far hotter and colder when humans weren’t around.

    This world is doomed. There’s a reason why Elon musk and the global space powers are scrambling to get to Mars and colonise planets outside of our own. The reason is we are in massive trouble. This planet will soon be uninhabitable. This is the endgame.

    End domination of human beings by human beings and domination of nature by human beings and you will end climate change catastrophe. Don’t do it and see the consequences.

    What to do when climate change feels unstoppable? We’ll, simply put, let’s just say don’t look the other and pretend the problem does not exist. Start by being a problem solver, we have enough couch potatoes in corporate and public institutions. Cheers.

    I’m sure if you stop scaring people about the doom coming with climate change, you will reduce the anxiety caused by it. In fact, I’m even more concerned for the people who worry uncontrollably. Get a grip already. There is nothing wrong that you can’t do something about yourself. Stop blaming everyone else for your situation. Stop expecting the govt to bail you out. Do your own work. Think for yourselves. Get your own education in something that matters, work in an area that actually matters. Pay your own bills and debts owed. Develop a plan to have everything you need in life, and give after you have achieved that.

    Its simple, the simple thing to do, you let go, and you let god. Who are we to fix problems with mother nature when she produced us. We do not have the intellect of mother nature, leave it to her, maybe she is not broken, maybe we should fix our issues among our own species first. How do you fix our issues? Its Simple, you LOVE unconditionally.
