On feeling Earth Emotions

Earth Emotions explains Glenn Albrect’s concept of solastalgia and other well-known eco-emotions such as biophilia and topophilia.

Albrecht introduces us to the many new words needed to describe the full range of our emotional responses to the emergent state of the world.

Did you know about other terms that Glenn Albrecht has disected and expanded on?  For instance, ecoanxiety - occurs in those who still have an element of concern left in them for the state of the environment and Albrecht also identified ecoanxiety as related to a changing and uncertain environment.

Another term meteoranxiety was introduced by Albrecht pertaining to a sub-set of ecoanxiety defined as specifically connected to the vicissitudes of the weather.

Worth reading the book to discover more words to describe the emotions we feel about the Earth.
