Posted on 07/03/2014 5:00:28 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
A study sponsored by the American Psychological Association and ecoAmerica warns that climate change, including an expected increase in the global mean temperature, will cause increased ecoanxiety resulting in severe psychological and sociological consequences. The study, Beyond Storms and Droughts: The Psychological Impacts of Climate Change, led by College of Wooster psychologist Susan Clayton, warns that we can expect a likely increase in mental health-related symptoms and conditions as a result of climate change.
Communities at risk include those with high levels of poverty, lower education levels, large populations of older adults, children and infants, disabled people, recently arrived immigrants, migrants, or refugees, all of whom tend to demand greater access to services that climate change can put at risk.
Adding to the misery, global warming is expected to contribute to an increase in mosquitoes, ticks, allergies, asthma and poison ivy, which will serve to increase global anxiety.

aka chicken little..........
what will they think of next
Oh great, finally someone sees the my pain. I have been so worried about Minnesota flooding, other states burning up. oceans taking over entire continents, etc. Now I can go to my shrink and get some help.
Back many years ago in a published letter to Forbes, I dubbed algore, Quacky Lackey. Chicken Little occupies a roost somewhere in a University.
His Quacky Lackey promulgated the drivel that the sky was falling
Time for more Lorazapam.
I know I’m feeling it.
“Bartender...make that a double.”
Is this because the earth is getting warmer, colder or both? Wonder how big her grant was?
Pray America wakes up
“what will they think of next”
Nothing surprises me anymore with libtards. I’m just disappointed I didn’t LOL more at the level of nonsense these morons come up with.
AKA Jim Jones' long lost daughter.
Seriously, these people are in need of institutionalization. This is just plain creepy.
Reminds me of a certain movie... If you create it; they will come.
“will cause increased ecoanxiety resulting in severe psychological and sociological consequences.”
I’m sure the angst is every bit as real as the stress felt by the Americans hitting the beaches of Normandy on D Day.
These people are insane.
Women, disabled and minorities hit hardest.
Wow, that terrible. We should do something.
I KNOW! Let’s put on a show!
The satire just writes itself these days.
Penn and Teller had an episode about this.
(warning: bad language!)
This whole ‘problem’ is getting like the old ‘joke’
Doctor tells patient:
“You seem to be pretty fit for your age, however to increase your chances of living longer, I would want you to cut back on the bacon and eggs and the other ‘high risk’ foods.”
Patient...”My grandfather religiously had 4 eggs and half a pound of bacon for breakfast EVERY morning, worked the cattle and fields ALL DAY, regardless of the weather, had a hearty lunch and heartier supper, and he lived to be 98”
“Ah yes, but that was before we were knew of the cholesterol problem”.
The next SSDI symptom for the sleaze lawyers.
The only “anxiety” I feel is the constant pestering of the Warmist crowd telling me how bad everything will be if I don’t stop driving cars, using coal-fueled electricity, don’t stop using paper, don’t stop using plastic bags, or just don’t stop breeding and breathing....
The newest school room practice drill is called “Duck and uncover.”
Teaches kids how to safely peal clothing off when it is too warm.
Can you say BS?
fake hoax lie horsesh!t too
Pure BS...more candidates for SSDI
I’m guessing climate change is nothing I need to worry about just like all the other eco scares over the last 50 years.
How about a psychosis for those of us driven to distraction by the climate hoaxers?
Global Warming Psychosis - Chicken Little anxiety followed by severe cognitive dissonance when the sky keeps failing to fall.
GW is a hoax.
Then they bemoan the fact that people are "anxious" about the mythical changes to our ecosystem???
It's a wholly artificial anxiety caused by a wholly artificial "crisis" and magnified by irresponsible media.
I’ve had to have this discussion with my kids in elementary school. They’re reading how global warming will cause summers to get hotter and we won’t have energy to cool off, water shortages, food shortages, disease. It is famine, plague and death - but without the religious view that gives salvation at the end. The eco-extreme view is in the text book as science and incorporated in many lessons that if you don’t live in poverty now, you’ll live in a living hell in the future - their adulthood.
I’ve spent hours discussing why they are wrong and what can be so much better.
And most parents don’t bother or actually believe the stuff themselves.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the suicide rate is much higher for the kids that will have been raised on this stuff.
Well, when the kooky left keeps hammering on the meme that carbon dioxide is a poison (rather than an essential component of life), what do you expect? Of course other kooky leftists are going to become anxious!
I suspect that the root issue for much angst is that life is simply too easy. We really do not have many of the real problems that people used to have to worry about. And there seems to be a need to have real existential problems to fret about. What are people supposed to do when they don’t have to worry that their children will all die of some horrid disease, or that next year’s food supply will be wiped out because of drought?
...we can expect a likely increase in mental health-related symptoms and conditions as a result of THE LIES ABOUT climate change.
This propaganda anxiety is produced to induce exactly that anxiety. It is the basis of motivating the sheople learned in every social psychology class, or progressive how-to become a community organizer class.

A study sponsored by the American Psychological Association and ecoAmerica warns that climate change, including an expected increase in the global mean temperature, will cause increased ecoanxiety in liberals resulting in further severe psychological and sociological consequences.
There, fixed it.
I just took the half-hour plus to watch Mr. Coleman's presentation. I'm going to forward a link to it to several AGW supporters I know. I'll guarantee that none of them will watch it all the way through; it conflicts with their collectivist world view.
It will depend on how honest they are.
STOP THEM FROM HURTING OUR CHILDREN
HOW would liberal elites feel if conservatives were teaching THEIR children that they would go to hell and burn for eternity if they didn't FOLLOW OUR BELIEFS?
Damn liberal hysterical monster scaring our children with lies...
LOL, well done.
So if I suffer from Climate Change Anxiety and later on when their climate change models don’t pan out, can i sue Al Gore for suffering?
you might sue for anxiety suffering now, no need to wait.
Eco-Porn requires no actual warming to be dangerous to your mental health.
