THEY'LL OPEN THE PUPPY ROOM IF THE MODEL CRASHES
GRIST LETS OUT A COLLECTIVE MOAN :
This 9-step program is like
Alcoholics Anonymous for climate anxiety.
The plan comes from the Salt Lake City support group “Good Grief,” which comforts people understandably stressed out by a warming planet, reports Yale Climate Communications. Frankly, it couldn’t have come soon enough.
After consulting with activists and scientists and studying the Alcoholics Anonymous 12-step model, Schmidt designed a program meant to unpack this emotional burden. The first step? Admitting there’s a problem. Other steps include acknowledging complicity in carbon emissions, finding beauty in nature, and reinvesting in climate activism.
Schmidt hopes to roll out the program in Good Grief come January and create even more resources for her fellow climate grievers, such as workshops and classes.
