Scientists believe that most of the solutions aiming to tackle the climate problem end up being “just a sticking plaster”.

What is Human Behavioral Crisis?

Joseph Merz, lead author of the research paper explains the phenomenon as something that lies at the core of the problem.

Human behavioral crisis is the deliberate manipulation of human behavior to suit the interests of commercial entities.

The research paper defines it as “the term ‘behavioral crisis’ specifically to mean the consequences of the innate suite of human behaviors that were once adaptive in early hominid evolution but have now been exploited to serve the global industrial economy”.

The paper explores the manipulation of human behaviors for economic growth by giant corporations.
