Fears Of ‘Climate Change’ Have Warmists Seeking Support Groups

Nothing says “treat my seriously, as a rational adult (and don’t forget the carbon tax)” like having to seek support groups because a tiny increase in the global temperature, something that has happened numerous times, is making you crazy

Fears around climate change are causing some people to seek out support groups

After the birth of her daughter, Dana Snell began worrying more and more about the changing climate in which she was raising her child.

Snell says she developed “eco-anxiety”, a term she uses to describe her specific anxiety around climate change.

“If it was above 30C I would really feel my heart sink, and it wasn’t just about: ‘Oh this is going to be an uncomfortable day’. This was: ‘What’s going to happen? What does this mean? What’s going to happen for the future?'” Snell explained.

Her anxiety worsened as she felt Toronto summers grow warmer in 2016 and 2017.

“I was very concerned about my young daughter’s future,” she told The Current’s Anna Maria Tremonti.

The physical and mental health effects of climate change are examined in a report published today called The Lancet Countdown 2018 Report: Briefing for Canadian Policy Makers. It was launched in tandem with an annual international report tracking global public health and climate change, called The Lancet Countdown. (snip)

To combat her fears, Snell found help through an online support group. They meet weekly through an online meeting app and structure their discussions around an Alcoholics Anonymous-type 10 step program. They talk through the different steps and discuss how they are coping.

“I’ve kind of moved past feeling like my daughter’s safety… my daughter’s life is in danger,” added Snell.

I’ll be honest: it’s no wonder that some people are seeking mental health treatments, as they are subjected to daily prognostications of Doom from the media on ‘climate change’. They’ve become disciples of the Cult of Climastrology, and would be best served with an intervention, much like with getting people out of cults. They just can’t break out of the bubble of Doom. The above is a Canadian Broadcasting Company article about pure doom. Then we have ones like this, a NY Post article crossed in a major Australian news outlet

Nine effects of climate change that will make your life a living hell

When asked about his perspective on a world in which humans do nothing to lower their emissions, environmentalist Bill McKibben had an ominous response.

“If not hell, then a place with a similar temperature. We have in the Earth’s geological record some sense of what happens when you run carbon levels up to the levels we’re running them now — it gets a lot hotter,” he told Business Insider last year.

But Earthlings don’t need to wait until 2100 to see the effects of climate change. Already, our degraded planet is grappling with droughts, deadly hurricanes, 20cm of sea level rise, raging forest fires and record-breaking heatwaves.

Here’s a look at how vulnerable we already are to climate change, and what we stand to lose in the coming decades.

Does this really help the mental health of people who have already been educated into Listening To Your Betters On Things They Tell You?

One day in the future those generations will look back and wonder what the hell was the matter with these people.

    I can see how a lot of people who care nothing about climate are going to get laid.

    It’s sad that they use deception to keep the ball rolling.

    Ocean Cooling
    Did the ocean actually start cooling?

    From 1993 to 2003, measurements of heat storage in the oceans agreed with satellite observations of net flux. After 2003, however, surface observations suggested that the ocean was losing heat, while satellite measurements of net flux showed the Earth was still slowly gaining energy. This mismatch was a hint that there might be a problem with one of the data sets. (Graph courtesy Takmeng Wong, NASA Langley Research Center.

    When scientists mistrust their data, they do they same thing you do when you think your watch is off: they check another clock. To diagnose the problem in the Atlantic, Willis needed to compare ocean temperature measurements from multiple sources. The first source he turned to was sea level data from satellite altimeters.

    Good plan.

    The same flaws in the XBT data that affected Willis’ ocean heat maps showed up in the long-term historical trend (light blue).

    Oh No. Everything says the oceans aren’t warming. What to do. What to do.

    After applying a correction, the historical record shows a relatively steady increase in line with what’s shown by climate models. The remaining short-term variability is as likely to be natural variation, such as El Niño, as noise in the data. (Graph by Robert Simmon, based on data from GODAR.)

    There that fixes that.

    “Grappling with droughts (been going on for 4.5 billion yrs), deadly hurricanes (so they first started to become deadly with SUVs?), 20cm of sea level rise (seas rising for the last 20,000 yrs), raging forest fires (first time for forest fires..?), and record breaking heat waves (record breaking heat waves were in the 1030s)”. Other than that…..

  5. Jethro says:

    The Earth continues to warm from the effects of CO2 humans added to the atmosphere.

  6. StillAlive says:

    Should we fear the North Atlantic BLOB? Climate scientists warn record cold in ocean may be a sign of changes to ocean currents

    Dateline October 2018.


    The reason is that in the past several years, amid record warm global temperatures (2014, 2015 and 2016 seem likely to be the third-hottest, second-hottest and hottest years on record, respectively), ocean temperatures to the southeast of Greenland have often been quite cold.

    Washington post. DATELINE 2015. So for 3 plus years the cold blob has been in position and not gone away.

    Michael Mann is confused by the Blob and says that the oceans curents could be slowing down bringing a mini-ice age. yes THE MICHAEL MANN.

    I’m not going to do the work for you but if you compare many different graphs of ocean heat around the world you will find that NOAA is flat out and bold face LYING. Their heat maps and variability reports dont match with others. So they make shit up.

    The conveyor belt of warm water pulled from the equator keeps the northern latitudes temperate. It appears they are slowing down. It is highly suspected this happened during the last mini-Iceage by core samples of the ocean floor. Be prepared.

  7. Jethro says:

    What’s this? Global warming making cold, less salty water off the coast of Greenland? How could that be?

    Recall that the ice sheet in Greenland is melting and the ice cold, fresh water has to go somewhere. Can this blob of ice cold, fresh water affect the North Atlantic currents, affecting the weather patterns of Europe and North America? You betcha! Could Europe have an mini ice age as the Earth warms? You betcha!

    London (51st parallel)a is north of Minnesota, Maine, much of Ontario, North Dakota – in fact it’s latitude is the same as Newfoundland and northern BC, Manitoba, Saskatchewan – yet London’s climate is milder than those places, because of the Gulf Stream.

    Anyway, the phenomenon is still being debated in scientific circles.


    • formwiz says:

      And here we were told the science was settled.

      • Jethro says:

        All you have is ignorance and hate.

        Technically, science is never “settled”, but the probability of invalidating a theory is reduced as more and more supporting evidence accumulates. It’s unlikely that we’ll see the theory of human caused global warming will be invalidated.

        The current competing hypotheses regarding the shallow cold water off the coast of Greenland is not probative to your point that you feel you were “told the science was settled”.

        • formwiz says:

          the probability of invalidating a theory is reduced as more and more supporting evidence accumulates

          Again, tell it to Galileo and Copernicus.

          It’s unlikely that we’ll see the theory of human caused global warming will be invalidated.

          Not as long as there are dumb Lefties.

          PS I don’t know what it cost you to go to Troll camp, but you was robbed.

    • StillAlive says:

      Your not following the time line at all.

      In 2014 the blob was there. In 2018 the blob is still there. What happens when the warm waters of the conveyor belt run into the frigid waters of the northern latitudes?

      They stop. This is why Michael Mann said in an interview that it looks like the conveyor belt is slowing down. A slowing conveyor belt along with the arrival of the grand solar minimum in which we will receive 13 percent less heat over the next 15 years means something.

      What is that something? Cold for the northern latitudes as far south as the Midwest of the US as well as most of Europe. Crops will die, food shortages will ensue and people will die.

      follow the timeline, dont simply find the first article by an AGW fanboy and then rebut what even Michael Mann the poster child of AGW is now even saying.

      • Jethro says:

        Thanks for the advice, however derisively delivered.

        Scientists are not as certain as you that changes in the solar cycle, even with the potential changes in AMOC will result in an ice age, especially since at the same time the Earth will be warming.

        • StillAlive says:

          I hope your right. I would rather avert my version of global weather change than yours. Yours just means more land to cultivate. Mine means a billion dead and a billion displaced. heres hoping your right and Im wrong.

        • formwiz says:

          Which scientists? I’ll bet not all, so which ones?

          And saying carbon dioxide can make the Earth warmer than the sun can cool it is a stretch.

          Or have you no idea (a rhetorical question if ever one existed) how hot the sun is and what sort of change in temp is possible?

          • Jethro says:

            Climate scientists.

            The sun has been in a cool phase for the past 40 years, yet the Earth has warmed significantly, suggesting that human-caused global warming can overcome a drop in total solar irradiance.

            As you know, the Earth with no atmosphere would be ice covered, regardless of the solar cycles.

  8. Jethro says:

    And all you have are ignorance and hatred.

    • formwiz says:

      I know the Lefties like to use that phony Einstein quote about insanity being doing the same thing over again, but expecting a different result.

      Hate to tell you, but that’s not insanity.

      It’s stupidity.

      But, go on, keep using that line. It may make you feel better about all the money you wasted at Troll camp.

  9. Jl says:

    “The probability of invalidating a theory is reduced as more and more evidence…”
    The problem is that it was never validated in the first place.

    • Jethro says:

      We expose your cynicism with a simple question you refuse to answer: What evidence do you require to “prove” the theory?

      • formwiz says:

        You don’t get it (but, then, he never does).

        You’re the one with the burden of proof. The skeptics’ job is to try to poke holes in it. If they find none or you can explain the perceived holes to their satisfaction, the proof stands.

        • Jethro says:

          No, you don’t seem to get it. You are not convinced by the evidence.

          The question is: What evidence would convince you that the increase in greenhouse gases is causing the Earth to warm?

          Climate scientists accept that evidence to date is sufficient.

          Don’t be embarrassed if you can’t answer, we’ve yet to get a serious response to this question.

  10. Jl says:

    A physical world that didn’t offer up any contradicting evidence that allows so many peer-reviewed papers opposing it. But it does. But in a larger sense, to be able to say that man’s CO2 is causing a temp rise, one would have to know all the mechanisms that caused past temperatures changes, which isn’t even close to being done. If we don’t understand natural temp changes, then they can’t be ruled out.

  11. formwiz says:

    That undiscovered mechanism is called the sun.

  12. formwiz says:

    Climate scientists.

    There are climatologists who don’t buy warming any more than other intelligent people. Now are these reputable climatologists or some proctologist in Peoria?

    The sun has been in a cool phase for the past 40 years, yet the Earth has warmed significantly, suggesting that human-caused global warming can overcome a drop in total solar irradiance.

    First, that cool phase is phrased in conditionals, so it may be and it may not be – like most of your other tripe.

    Second, the “warming” is reported the same way Lefties do everything when they want a different result. They cook the books. Temp data is “adjusted” the same way unemployment and inflation data were “adjusted” during the 8 years of the Mocha Messiah.

    PS Irradience is defined as the amount of energy across a flat surface.

    Which means Jeffery just told us he thinks the world is flat
