Taking Collective Responsibility for Fixing Climate Change

Taking Collective Responsibility for Fixing Climate Change

The goop Podcast - March 31, 2020 - 42:11

“Climate change is a justice issue,” says journalist Tatiana Schlossberg, author of Inconspicuous Consumption. At In goop Health, Schlossberg sat down with Elise Loehnen to talk about how we can let go of individual guilt around climate change and move toward collective responsibility and meaningful change. She begins by taking some pressure off of consumers and illuminating the role companies do, should, and could play (for example, looking at just how much water is used to make a single pair of jeans). Schlossberg points out the brands and policies already making a positive difference and the large-scale shifts she still wants to see, such as stopping fossil fuel subsidies, the deforestation of Alaska, and drilling for oil and gas on public lands. On a more personal level, Schlossberg outlines ways to vote, advocate, shop, and eat that allow us to be part of the solution—without needing to be perfect. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)
