Learning from the corona pandemic for the climate crisis?

In the view of Prof. Martin Löffelholz, Co-Director of the International Research Group on Crisis Communication at TU Ilmenau, there are clear differences between a suddenly occurring pandemic and the rather insidious climate crisis, as he pointed out in an interview with Bayerischer Rundfunk.

In the article, politicians and scientists explain the lessons that can be learned from dealing with the corona crisis to solve the climate crisis. Prof. Löffelholz explains that in the current pandemic, politicians are communicating the risks of a viral infection more clearly than in the case of climate change - partly because the effects of the corona crisis are directly noticeable.
