Obviously a made-up mental disorder is the logical result of anxiety over made up science. This is reminiscent of the anxiety disorder liberals were suffering when they couldn’t accept that Al Gore had lost the election. That may have been the point of no return for many on the left’s sanity. Now crazy is the standard for Al Gore and his prophets of doom.
In the Grist article Climate depression is for real. Just ask a scientist we learn about the terrible ordeal high profile Nobel winning climate change alarmists like Camille Parmesan must suffer.
“In the U.S., [climate change] isn’t well-supported by the funding system, and when I give public talks in the U.S., I have to devote the first half of the talk to [the topic] that climate change is really happening,” says Parmesan, now a professor at Plymouth University in England.
Parmesan certainly isn’t the first to experience some sort of climate-change blues. From depression to substance abuse to suicide and post-traumatic stress disorder, growing bodies of research in the relatively new field of psychology of global warming suggest that climate change will take a pretty heavy toll on the human psyche as storms become more destructive and droughts more prolonged. For your everyday environmentalist, the emotional stress suffered by a rapidly changing Earth can result in some pretty substantial anxieties.
The climate change religion has already established its notions of sin, penance, and indulgences. Now they’re canonizing martyrs and saints.
