According to a report released Monday, rates of mental illness, including depression and post-traumatic stress, will increase as a result of climate change.
The paper, prepared for the Climate Institute, says loss of social cohesion in the wake of severe weather events related to climate change could be linked to increased rates of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress and substance abuse.
The research claims as many as one in five people already have reported ”emotional injury, stress and despair” in the wake of these events.
The report, A Climate of Suffering: The Real Cost of Living with Inaction on Climate Change, called the past 15 years a ”preview of life under unrestrained global warming”.
Okay, let’s stop with the hogwash and get based in reality. The earth’s climate will always undergo change. In fact, as I state in my book, the biggest change coming in decades ahead is likely global cooling. So if cold weather depresses you, start the Xanax meds early and take them often.
Folks, if anyone suffers from mental illness it’s people like the junk science clowns at the Climate Institute and the poster boy for global warming, Al Gore. Several weeks ago, at the Aspen Institute in Colorado Gore went off on a cussing tantrum about the climate-change deniers. At that moment I knew his pathetic mind was no longer capable of keeping track of all his lies–not just the fibs he probably was telling Tipper all these years–but the whoppers he’s been serving up so long about the earth having a fever.
Then on Friday Gore was involved in an interview with a ragtag Internet outfit in which he criticized climate change deniers, urging those who support curbing greenhouse gases to “win the conversation.” In an especially odd “gorbasm,” he compared the struggle against climate deniers to the fight against racism during the 1960s civil rights movement. Gore said when racist comments would be used in the course of conversations, “There came a time when people said, ‘Hey man, why do you talk that way? That’s wrong, I don’t go for that, so don’t talk that way around me. I just don’t believe that.’”
Gore explained that as more and more people responded in such a fashion, “slowly the conversation was won…and we have to win the conversation on climate.”
Mr. Gore, your comparison of the global warming debate to racism is like comparing apples and rocks. The problem is you’re just another ideologue who dictates to his subjects what to think, not how to think.
Get off the stage. Your time has come, and gone.
