Abstract Globalisation, especially through communicative channels and gadgets, has produced closer proximity between individuals and groups. The global connections and networks are closer than ever before. But environmental injustices prevail. Citizenship participation is also waning rapidly. This paper explores reasons for such continued prevalence of environmental injustices and lack of public consciousness. The concern of this paper is: Have individuals and societies become numb? Several forms of disconnections - between the individual and the group, the group and society, as well as thought and action - will be examined. As connectivity affects genetic communication within a population, the paper calls for strategic involvement in significantly promoting connectedness.
