Sustainable Development Goals and Climate Change

Introduction

In its editorial titled “Stubborn Optimism” published on September 15, the Inquirer highlights the increasing perils of climate change. The article references various recent events such as the hottest July and August globally on record, the Maui wildfire, the Libya flood, the tropical storm in Southern California, and Hurricane Idalia as evidence of the growing danger to humanity. The Inquirer argues that these events are a result of human-caused climate change and emphasizes the need for action to address this problem.

The Impact of Media

For those who rely on news sources like The New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, and major U.S. broadcast networks, it is understandable to be terrified by the constant attribution of every newsworthy weather event to anthropogenic climate change. This situation is reminiscent of an article published in the Sunday edition of The New York Times on September 17, which reported on the increasing prevalence of “eco-anxiety” in Europe. The media’s repeated headlines about impending doom due to climate change instill fear and despair among the public. It is likely that eco-anxiety exists in the United States as well.
