Why climate disasters might not increase concern about cimate change

A post by George Marshall, who founded Britain’s Climate Outreach and Information Network.  

His main argument was that "Disasters encourage powerful and compelling survival narratives (that can overwhelm weaker and more complex climate change narratives)."  Basically, at the time of crisis, people stick to their community and stick to what they have believed, and there might be no room for new messages.
