News Article of the Week
The problem with Earth Day? Human psychology
While Earth Day is influential in the short term for environmental friendly behaviors, it does not instill long-term changes in behavior. The problem is not earth day, but the psychology of habits: humans fall back into what they're used to. Elke Weber, Center for Decision Sciences, discusses how Earth Day should be used as a tool to leverage long-term change. She states that it is important for us to change defaults; environmental choices are something you have to opt into it - making them less likely to be chosen.
