Your climate archetype is:

The Scientist

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.

-Marie Curie

The Scientist finds great satisfaction in coming up with definitive answers to complex problems.

You are curious. It’s really as simple as that. You find the unknown irresistible and pursue knowledge with fervour—because you kinda can’t help yourself.

The Scientist’s methodical approach always yields valuable information.

When you are unsure of something, you either do the research or put it to the test. And if you come back with unexpected results, you are guaranteed to have learned something valuable along the way.

The Scientist can become quite single-minded in their pursuits.

Your dedication and focus, however, is anything but narrow-mindedness. You welcome and embrace new people and novel sources of information, even when they challenge your preconceived notions. In fact, that’s probably your favourite part.

The Scientist provides the backbone of the climate movement.

And we’re not just talking about “scientists” in the institutional sense. Anyone from a researcher to a traditional knowledge keeper fits the bill. Because ultimately, it’s people like you who are figuring out what’s happening and proposing solutions. Check out the resources below to find out how The Scientist champions climate action.
