Bummer: A Tiny Increase In Global Temperatures Is Making People Crazy!

How did humanity possibly survive during all the previous Holocene warm periods?

Climate Change May Be Taking a Toll on Your Mental Health

The world’s rising temperatures don’t just cause glaciers to melt, coral reefs to bleach and forests to burn: It can tip a person from mentally healthy to mentally ill. A growing body of research shows that climate change is taking a significant toll on mental health, according to a new report from the world’s largest association of psychologists, the American Psychological Association (APA).

“I found this topic really interesting because this wasn’t something I was hearing people talk about and this wasn’t well acknowledged as an effect of climate change,” said Susan Clayton, the lead author of the report and professor of psychology at the College of Wooster in Ohio.

Co-authored by the D.C.-based environmental nonprofit ecoAmerica, the report is based more than 250 relevant scientific studies. Incidentally, the 69-page review was released on March 29, the day after Trump issued executive orders that rolled back Obama-era regulations designed to mitigate global warming.

Remember how there was a warm period called the Dark Ages? Oh, wait, that was a cool period during the Holocene. In fact, some of the best enlightened periods during the Holocene have occurred during, get this, the warm periods.

But, what is this all really about?

The APA report finds that “ecoanxiety”—the feeling of impending environmental doom—is happening on a global scale. And because of that, it is time to expand awareness of and action on climate’s effect on mental health.

At its root, this is about people making themselves nuts over a minimal 1.4F increase in over 150 years. They’re listening to doomsaying from the media and the top Warmists (who refuse to practice what they preach, of course) and losing their minds. Wrap everything else around this in the article, it essentially the equivalent of people doing PCP every day and blaming the dealer because you go nuts. These Warmists are making themselves wackadoodle.

    IOW, irrational fear of “climate change” is making gullible people and other easily-led sheep crazier.

    This is news? Jeffty demonstrates this daily.

    But, but, does research show they were wackadoodle before becoming warmists?!?! Very likely IMHO

    Sorry Teach but that’s considered a pre-existing disorder.

  5. It likely is a pre-existing condition. Anxiety tends to exist at a stable level in a personality (somewhat hardwired, but the level can be modified), which then goes in search for an explanation of what it is anxious about. If they weren’t anxious about the environment, they would sense impending doom coming from somewhere else.

    This is also true of paranoia, and somewhat true of depression. The feeling precedes the narrative. This is because our brains cannot leave anything unexplained, and have to zip something in there that seems plausible.

    The article (based on the APA findings) importantly attributed anxiety to actual current effects of climate change, droughts, floods, wildfires, heatwaves etc. People are not stupid – when they see their house flooded by 8 feet of river water for the second time in 15 months denier’s cries of “Hoax” ring hollow. As the guy in Fenton MO asked in April, “How many more 100 year floods will we get this year?!?”.

    What so-called Holocene warm periods do you mean? If the climate changes, people cope by moving. If southern Ontario stayed ice covered for a few years, populations would migrate south until they found more hospitable environs. If their new river home kept flooding the people would seek higher ground. And that’s what happening now.

    Bummer: A Tiny Increase In Global Temperatures

    Although scientists with 4 years of university, 4 years graduate training, 2-4 years post-doctoral research and further years of study and research are obviously stupider than trump and the average conservablogger and the average conservablogger commenter, the experts have demonstrated that the current rapid increase in the average global surface temperature is much more than “A Tiny Increase…”.

    What is your justification for calling the current rapid increase “tiny”?
