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.

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.
