The world is beginning to come to grips with the climate crisis. The transition to clean energy is accelerating. The sense of urgency needed for humanity to face the most critical challenge of our times is mounting. There is hope but in the video that follows, Ingmar Rentzhog—founder of We Don’t Have Time—says “I am not here to talk about hope. I am here to talk about fear.”
I’m here to talk about the FEAR of Missing Out

I’m Here to Talk About Fear – Ingmar Rentzhog
April 27, 2021
In this speech, Ingmar Rentzhog talks about the motivating power of fear. Not the fear of the impacts of climate change, not the fear of climate catastrophes but the fear of missing out. “The fear of missing out is how we conquer the fear of change and reach the critical mass to stop the climate crisis,” says Rentzhog.
You will want to listen to his speech right to the end.
I first encountered Ingmar Rentzhog when I joined We Don’t Have Time (WDHT)a few years back. Shortly after, I was asked to be a Canadian contact for the WDHT network. And Below2C has been a participating partner in each of the last two Earth Day online conferences hosted by WDHT and its partners and collaborators.
The fire alarm that causes no reaction
“The fire alarm that causes no reaction” video below is one of the most riveting talks I’ve ever heard. It was given at the Climate Emergency Plan seminar on November 24, 2018.
Ingmar Rentzhog, founder of We Don’t Have Time, comes on stage and the audience expects the usual welcome speech. They don’t get one. They get a fire drill. Watch why.
