In order to meet the threat the climate change poses, it is insufficient to just be concerned with scientific findings and technological solutions. The primary challenge is the question of behavioral dispositions as well as motivations. Different sociocultural patterns need to be gained insight into, such as those having meant an impact on triggering climate change and those enabling fresh perspectives as well as new approaches for acting. This is what the new human ecology researches, fighting against the normativity of the lack of alternatives. Contesting a further appropriation of the world by the human as well as an increasing hominization of the world, the new human ecology advocates a more profound “humanization of the human.”
