Thirty years ago, Czechoslovak grief over a devastated landscape and lack of care for the environment was one of the propelling forces of the Velvet Revolution. Soon the country took a deep breath of not only freedom but also cleaner air. Three decades later, however, grief over the climate situation is growing, clashing with ignorance, and again becoming a rebellion. Various movements have recently changed the climate game by sending out strong emotions. And suddenly, things were set into motion. Grief deals with climate change – not through statistics and degrees Celsius, but through emotions. Andrea Culková shows how environmental crisis-induced anxiety produces new rebels.
