Family therapy for arguments about climate
Family therapy is a place for you to create harmony, and respect for other views. The following scientifically-based evidence is provided by Environment Correspondent, Fiona Harvey who has provided many valuable links which need to be shared repeatedly 🙂
‘Greenhouse gas emissions could be halved in the next decade if a small number of current technologies and behavioural trends are ramped up and adopted more widely, researchers have found, saying strong civil society movements are needed to drive such change.
Solar and wind power, now cheaper than fossil fuels in many regions, must be scaled up rapidly to replace coal-fired generation, and this alone could halve emissions from electricity generation by 2030, according to the Exponential Roadmap report from an international group of experts.
If the rapid uptake of electric vehicles in some parts of the world could be sustained, the vehicles could make up 90% of the market by 2030, vastly reducing emissions from transport, it said.
Avoiding deforestation and improving land management could reduce emissions by the equivalent of about 9bn tonnes of carbon dioxide a year by 2030.’
As an Imago Relationship Therapist, I am impartial during the session despite a clear bias, so my focus is on enabling each of you to become really skilled in the advanced communication which creates growth and harmony from life’s inevitable conflicts or differences of opinion 🙂
Family Therapy facilitates consensus or differentiation about diet
As a family you need to agree which of the above you’d like to adopt, then address each person’s needs based on more research from Fiona Harvey:-
‘Key to any transition will be the growing social movements that are pressing for urgent action on climate breakdown. By driving behavioural change, such as moving away from the overconsumption of meat and putting pressure on governments and companies, civil movements have the power to drive the transformation needed in the next decade, say the report’s authors.
Christiana Figueres, a former top climate official at the UN, said: “I see all evidence that social and economic tipping points are aligning. We can now say the next decade has the potential to see the fastest economic transition in history.”
The experts identified 36 developments that would produce the emission cuts needed, from renewable energy to changes in food production, the design of cities, and international transport, such as shipping. All of them are judged possible to achieve by 2030.’
