Climate quitting: the people leaving their fossil fuel jobs because of climate change

Great podcast about people leaving their job in the fossil fuel industry.
"On a Friday afternoon travelling home, I would feel physically uncomfortable. And I was wondering: why am I feeling physically uncomfortable? I had a good week, I’ve done good work. And then you realise that, you may have done good work, but the goal that you’re working towards is evil in a way; does not align with your moral compass."
Many referred to having a sense of cognitive dissonance – the idea that your behaviour doesn’t match your belief system. And they couldn’t live it with any longer. Augustine explained:
"They were increasingly feeling a sense of urgency around the climate crisis … something that they’d thought might be happening ten, 15, 20 years down the line, such as heat records being broken or climate related weather events. They felt an increasing sense that it couldn’t wait any longer for them to leave this industry."

                More people have to quit since it's not healthy for the environment's sustainability.

                    If people were actually to quit working for companies that are inhuman...maybe then more companies would have changed their ways and go green.
