Weighing climate project, @RKrulwich of NPR notes: “even broaching this subject makes me feel like someone’s put heavy stones in my head.”

He lays out the cognitive impediments to grappling with climate science and responses but then relies too much on earlier NPR posts by Ursula Goodenough, a biologist who dives into the behavioral work on climate denial as if that end of the belief spectrum is the only reason the issue is mired. Lots more on the full spectrum of behavioral issues on Dot Earth.
