    This chapter addresses the rise of eco-anxiety, which manifests not only in popular individual and group psychologies, but also impacts the work of professional researchers who live on a daily basis with a knowledge of the unsustainable present. While this creates guilt, worry, and anger, the author counterposes a hope for a ‘practical anxiety’, which might create a bridge between professionals and the public.
