Last quote by Paul Bloom

It's because of the zooming effect of empathy that the whole world cares more about a little girl stuck in a well than they do about the possible deaths of millions and millions due to climate change.feedback

Paul Bloom has most recently been quoted in an article called Empathy makes us immoral, says a Yale psychologist. Paul Bloom said, “When we rely on empathy, we think that a little girl stuck down a well is more important than all of climate change, is more important than tens of thousands of people dying in a far away country. Empathy zooms us in on the attractive, on the young, on people of the same race. It zooms us in on the one rather than the many. And so it distorts our priorities.”. Paul Bloom has been quoted a grand total of 3 times in 2 articles.
