Is climate change like the Titanic?
I was interviewed about attitudes to climate change by my friend, colleague and fellow Belfast-born Anna-Lisa Mills yesterday. We got into a lengthy debate about the balance between risk and opportunity – I like to favour the opportunity, Anna-Lisa feels that we need to communicate the urgency to act now.
To that end she has produced this rather wonderful video likening our attitude to the scientific evidence with the ill-fated journey of our home city’s most famous export, the Titanic. If you are going to communicate risks, this is the way to do it.
