Session #2 – Judge: The many obstacles obstructing the path to an integral ecology, problems and difficultiesWhy do many people refuse to believe in climate change or understate its impact?

How do they assess the impact of their actions on the environment and is there accountability? What about the lack of consensually agreed ways of measuring the cost of sustainability?
