Greenland Residents Traumatized With Climate Grief Or Something

This climate trauma thing is great. You have people yammering about other people having mental health issues from a tiny increase in the Earth’s average temperature, something that has happened many many times during the Holocene, which causes other people to think they’re mentally ill

‘Ecological grief’: Greenland residents traumatised by climate emergency

The climate crisis is causing unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety to people in Greenland who are struggling to reconcile the traumatic impact of global heating with their traditional way of life.

The first ever national survey examining the human impact of the climate emergency, revealed in the Guardian on Monday, shows that more than 90% of islanders interviewed fully accept that the climate crisis is happening, with a further 76% claiming to have personally experienced global heating in their daily lives, from coping with dangerous sea ice journeys to having sled dogs euthanised for economic reasons tied to shorter winters.

None of this proves anthropogenic causation. Oh, and it’s not like that “if the Greenland ice sheet goes on melting at this extraordinary rate, then within 12,500 years HALF of it will be gone.” Darned science

Scattered across 17 small towns and approximately 60 villages, all situated on a narrow coastal strip, Greenland’s residents have often been overlooked by data science. The island faces some of the most acute social issues in the world with high levels of alcoholism and historically disproportionate rates of suicide.

According to its lead author, Kelton Minor, the survey finally gives Greenland’s most remote and inaccessible communities a voice on the climate crisis.

Did they just try and link those issues to a tiny increase in “carbon pollution”?

For mental health professionals who specialise in the polar region, the latest survey findings from Greenland will present another red flag for the Arctic’s vulnerable Inuit communities. According to Courtney Howard, the board president of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, who lives and works in the Arctic, the intersection between the climate emergency and mental and physical health will become one of the world’s major issues.

Howard said: “Temperature change is magnified in circumpolar regions. There is no question Arctic people are now showing symptoms of anxiety, ‘ecological grief’ and even post-traumatic stress related to the effects of climate change.

“We are challenging the medical profession to acknowledge the world we are inheriting. Schools and universities aren’t considering how climate change will affect people, from a medical or a psychological perspective, so we are not training a new generation of medical professionals to help people in a fast-changing planet and this is intolerable. We are moving too slowly on this.”

We can solve this with a tax, though.

    Poor people will have to wait until winter for it to return. Man, that is tough.

    Capital BULL, small shit! The only thing causing stress and anxiety are the loons running around trying to scare the crap out of everyone especially children and the weak of mind.

    There is no lie too big, no scam so preposterous and no fantasy too unbelievable that leftists won’t peddle if they think it can make them $$$$$ on other people’s labor.

    Trump 2020 Stop the stress and anxiety!!

    TEACH typed: “None of this proves anthropogenic causation.”

    Scientific theories are never proven, but as supportive evidence accumulates it becomes unreasonable to consider the theory false, or a Chinese hoax, or an international communist hoax to establish a New World Order. That doesn’t mean the theory will never be falsified with new evidence.

    What is your alternative theory explaining why the Earth is warming rapidly?

    Do you think the Greenlanders are lying? Or the pollsters?

      They’re called “interglacial periods”.

      Thanks for playing! You lose.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Do you believe that the interglacial periods have naturally occurring bouts of rapid warming?

        The Holocene was warmest (until now) for a few thousand yrs after the end of the last glacial period and has been cooling slowly for the past 6000 yrs, dropping some 0.4C! About 150 yrs ago the mean global surface temp starting increasing and is now about 1C warmer than the low point. So it took 6000 yrs to cool 0.4C but only 150 yrs to warm 1C! And there is no scientific reason to expect the warming to stop soon.

        Do you have a theory why it’s warming so fast, if not greenhouse gases?

        Thanks for playing!

          Yes. Now go look at what Brazil is doing to the rainforest. Even the AGW crowd which refused to acknowledge anything but fossil fuels is now starting to include the cutting of the rainforests as a major player in the rise of co2.

          The Brazilian presidents solution is to quit crapping so much and that will solve the worlds problems while he continues to raze the rainforest in his nation. Interesting how the massive cutting of one of the largest co2 sinks on the planet coincides with the rise of co2 on the planet.

          Co2 doesn’t bother me. What genuinely bothers me is this forest produces 20 percent of the worlds Oxygen. If you have something to protest you might get on a plane and head to Brazil. More co2 we can deal with, less oxygen. Not so much. Everyone start planting trees around your home. I know my wife has turned our property into a jungle and she doesn’t believe in AGW either. She just likes green stuff and likes to garden.

          Sorry, the warming rate isn’t statistically different than the warming rate earlier last century. But you knew that

      The Greenlanders are notorious liars. Just ask any Icelander.

    “Greenland residents traumatised by climate emergency”

    Tell them to put down their phones and turn off the net. The alleged “emergency” isn’t causing their anxiety, hyperbolic reporting on it is.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Global warming is a real emergency.

      On the other hand illegal border crossings are only 1/3rd of what they were 20 yrs ago.

      • formwiz says:

        Global nonsense is just that and border crossings are down because of Donald Trump.

      • Doom and Gloom says:

        Global warming is not an emergency except in the heads of communists who want to destroy the American economy for their idols in Russia and China.

        However what is an emergency is the medical care the left needs for their Trump Derangement Syndrome running away with them faster than Greenhouse gases are rising inside of their massively expensive homes with their electric meters spinning so fast they are smoking.

        Speaking of smoking. Out law Cannibis in these blue states like WASHINGTON STATE where the poor mommy is afraid her children are going to die a horrifying death in a city that looks like a city dump station and where people can grow their own hallucinigens. LOLOLOL. I’m pretty sure these snowflakes were toking before they show up terrified their children are going to die.

        I can only imagine what they see when they look at the Orange man thru the eyes of hallucinated brains. After all Donald Trump created Global warming, the cold war, nuclear bombs, fallout, co2. Was the father to Mao, Lenin and Stalin and Hitler was his twin brother along of course with George W. Bush. The Orange man created Chic-fil-A to incite to riot anyone who dared believe in God and without a doubt was the one who decided the Catholic Church should have male only priests like 17 centuries ago.

        And proof of the “emergency” is….what? Good luck

  5. formwiz says:

    You said they were down.

    This year they are.

    PS Try something a little more credible than another Lefty fact check site, especially one from Canuckistan.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      This is where one making a specific claim (crossings are down) would supply supporting evidence.
