Two environmental psychologists on reasons we don't react to the threat of catastrophic climate change. Plus new film on Gregory Bateson, co-inventor of the "double bind" and eco-connection - by his daughter Nora.
2 clips from "The Ecology of Mind" by Nora Bateson

End song clip "Jumpin' Jack Flash" (it's a gas) by The Rolling Stones.
In the Affiliates version there is a break and re-intro at 29:02 for stations needing to insert station ID or announcements.

Prof Robert Gifford of University of Victoria (Canada) finds 29 "Dragons" - the barriers and things we tell ourselves, as we continue in a doomed fossil-powered project. And a few "Dragon-slayers" to get beyond our mass denial.

From Australia, where fires, floods and drought leave less doubt - Dr. Joseph Reser of Griffith University, Queenland explains the new American Psychological Association report on climate change - and why governments and the IPCC need to factor in "the human factor". Hard science facts apparently don't motivate humans as we thought. What does?

Nora Bateson is showing her new film "An Ecology of Mind" at the Vancouver International Film Festival, with more to come in Italy, as well as at the Bioneers conference.

It is an intellectual history of the man who helped invent anthropology (with his wife Margaret Mead), cybernetics and the "double bind" theory (with others), and much else. Gregory Bateson came again to prominence in the late 1970's, championed for his vision of connected everything, by Stewart Brand. Nora and I try to interpret for the present times.
