Language underpins all thought. We need to start renaming climate anxiety to what it really is: climate empathy.
The notion of anxiety is very inward and destructive. Empathy is very outwards and motivating.
By slightly, subtly reframing the way we speak, we can vindicate and mobilise huge numbers of people to act to change the world for the better.
