Why is it so hard to get people to change?

    I think there’s a few different reasons. One of the main ones is that people are afraid of changing; people don’t trust the unfamiliar and it can take a long time to reassure people that new ways of doing things are easy, better, achievable, or safe. People have to see how changing benefits them personally, and sometimes, especially with abstract concerns about the environment, they don’t know how to apply them to their daily life. (How many people have you heard say they aren’t worried about global warming for reasons like, “We’ve had the coldest winter in years here!”) I think the key to convincing people to change is education and making the resources to change easily available to them. Eventually I think most people will come around.
