Quotes on Climate Change – Choices we have: Mitigation, Adaptation, Suffering

Slide Content

The slide presents a quote addressing the three fundamental responses to climate change: mitigation, adaptation, and suffering. It describes that there is no singular solution, rather a blend of all three, with the key being the proportion of each. Mitigation involves reducing the causes of climate change, adaptation refers to adjusting to its effects, and suffering denotes the consequences of inaction. The quote by John Holdren implies that increased mitigation efforts can reduce the need for adaptation and the extent of suffering experienced.

Graphical Look

  • The slide has a green and blue color theme.
  • A large, teal speech bubble graphic is on the left, containing the quote in white font.
  • Three distinct, horizontal color bands (teal, green, and yellow) stretch across the right side of the slide, each labeled with one of the choices: 'mitigation', 'adaptation', and 'suffering' in bold white fonts.
  • Circular icons representing each concept accompany the text on the color bands: a leaf with CO2 for mitigation, interlocking gears for adaptation, and a sad face for suffering.
  • There is a slight shadow under the color bands giving a subtle 3D effect.

The slide has a clean, professional design with a clear visual structure that emphasizes the three concepts through distinct color codes and simple icons.

Use Cases

  • To introduce the concept of different responses to climate change in an educational setting.
  • In a business presentation to discuss a company's sustainability strategy and its focus areas.
  • During a policy-making workshop or conference to frame discussions around climate change action plans.
  • As a part of an environmental awareness campaign to illustrate the potential outcomes of various approaches to climate issues.
