Mankind's ability to mitigate and adapt to climate change may be limited by cognitive biases. To address this challenge, research on cognitive biases has to be expanded beyond the study of individual-based psychological cognition effects to understand their interaction with cultural factors and their impact on group behaviour. Here we describe the relevant cognitive biases and how they are impacted by culture, and we propose that future environmental policymaking has to take into account how such Culturally Embedded Cognitive Biases (CECB) affect willingness to comply.
