Evolutionary responses tend to move toward real, imminent threats such as terrorism, not those that happen in the long term, Ruth Greenspan Bell, a scholar associated with Columbia University’s Center for Decision Sciences and the Environmental Law Institute, wrote in The Guardian.

“Shrinking Arctic ice cover, erratic changes in winter snow cover or rapid shifts in heat and cold don’t provide the same sense of threat as our fear of terrorist attacks or other bodily harm.”
