Background

Many people do not feel affected by climate change. They continue to live as they have done up to now.  Even those who have recognized the problem often find it difficult to make sustainable consumption decisions in hectic everyday life or based on social expectations.

The demand for decadent luxury strengthens an immense emission of climate-damaging greenhouse gases, said economist Nico Paech of the University of Siegen. “These are cruises, these are SUVs, this is air travel, digital electronics and the demand for even more living space.” This is pure comfort that cannot be justified as the satisfaction of essential basic needs. (SPON 1.12.2019)

The government is afraid of being voted out of office for major measures. The lobby is slowing down. Some people think you can solve everything on the side with technology. Scientists and dedicated individuals warn and demand political and personal change. The outstanding changes are huge. Society needs transformation.

What are the decisions driven by comfort, what are their consequences, what are the reasons for our actions and how can we, as individuals and as a community, take new paths?
