But Greta Thunberg is still saying “there is a still a very, very long way to go”, Pic shows Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg (3rd R) is pictured as she protests in front of the Swedish Parliament (Riksdagen) in Stockholm, on November 19, 2021. - AFP

LIFE is extremely complicated and will only become more so.

The just-completed Glasgow Conference of Parties (COP26) that signed the United Nations (UN) Framework Convention on Climate Change seems to have generated a lot of agreements, but Greta Thunberg is still saying “there is a still a very, very long way to go”. Just having some agreement is better than nothing, but the hard work is only just beginning.

All the leaders and signatories have now to go home and start delivering on their promises. The fact that the United States and China (the two largest carbon emitters) actually agreed to work together on achieving the 1.5°C temperature goal set out in the 2015 Paris Agreement was welcome relief on many fronts.

The typical reaction was positive, because if presidents Xi Jinping and Joe Biden could deliver on their own domestic commitments, that would be steps in the right direction. But how do we convince more people to make the change on climate action?

The power of mass movements

There is so much distrust of authority at this stage that many are cynical. Elections do not seem to solve anything, because when the majority margin is wafer thin, coalition governments cannot make tough decisions.

We find ourselves like the principal character Joseph in Franz Kafka’s book The Trial, where he finds himself in a faceless court case facing charges and accusations he neither understands nor how he can get out of his predicament.

Kafka describes very well how many feel alienated, hopeless against a faceless bureaucracy, frustrated against the system and lost in an absurd reality. Many hark back to a golden lost era, which causes identity conflicts between race, religion and cultures.

Politicians on both sides of the spectrum from democracies to autocracies understand the power of mass movements. People have always been mobilised by powerful story-telling.

Either we unite fighting an outside enemy, an enemy within or we strengthen the institutions and shared interests that bind us.

No one seems to have found the right narrative that will unite us to confront a frightening future of climate catastrophes.

COP26 showed how the story of climate warming changed over the years. In 1972, the Club of Rome built a pioneering model warning about the limits of growth. Hardly anyone believed that story.

In 1988, after the hottest year on record, NASA scientist James Hansen declared that global warming was upon us. The next year, the UN established the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to determine the scientific basis of climate change and its political and economic impacts.
