A systemic language/languaging to talk about and respond to climate change

We already do a lot of talking and languaging more generally about climate change.  We will do a lot more. That is why we have to move to a much more sophisticated use of language than happens at the moment.  Our world may disappear for the want of a much deeper understanding of how language uses us - and how primitive we are in the language we deploy.  George Lakoff has good advice on some of the systemic issues that are becoming more apparent each day w.r.t our languaging.
