Mental illness rise linked to climate

Climate change

RATES of mental illnesses including depression and post-traumatic stress will increase as a result of climate change, a report to be released today says.

The paper, prepared for the Climate Institute, says loss of social cohesion in the wake of severe weather events related to climate change could be linked to increased rates of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress and substance abuse.

As many as one in five people reported ”emotional injury, stress and despair” in the wake of these events.

It shows that one in 10 primary school children reported symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder in the wake of cyclone Larry in 2006. More than one in 10 reported symptoms more than three months after the cyclone.

By the way, Cyclone Larry is the name of my new vacuum store. Our prices are INSANE!!!

    1. UPDATE:
      This is being moved to the front row. It’s from Too Much Time:
    1. Here is an excerpt from Michael Crichton’s speech Complexity Theory and Environmental Management. It has to do with the meltdown at Chernobyl where only 56 people died and yet the media was estimating upwards of 15-30 thousand deaths!

      But most troubling of all, according to the UN report in 2005, is that “the largest public health problem created by the accident” is the “damaging psychological impact [due] to a lack of accurate information…[manifesting] as negative self-assessments of health, belief in a shortened life expectancy, lack of initiative, and dependency on assistance from the state.”

      In other words, the greatest damage to the people of Chernobyl was caused by bad information. These people weren’t blighted by radiation so much as by terrifying but false information.

      [snip]

      But thousands of Ukrainians who didn’t die were made invalids out of fear. They were told to be afraid. They were told they were going to die when they weren’t. They were told their children would be deformed when they weren’t. They were told they couldn’t have children when they could. They were authoritatively promised a future of cancer, deformities, pain and decay. It’s no wonder they responded as they did.

      Basically, these people are doing exactly what the media wants them to do; be afraid when a story is reported.

    I believe the World was a better place before we started naming everything we had wrong with us.

    I could see a devastating tornado back in like 1860.

    We’ll took out the farm and half my crops, I can’t rebuild because of this damn emotional injury, stress and despair.

    The rise in mental illness is due to overhyped media reports on natural disastors.

    The latest is irene.

    I wonder how many people, included in the death toll of the storm, committted suicide due to the news coverage about the storm being so disastorous?

    “loss of social cohesion”

    You mean 3,000 scientist finding that climate change is all about the clouds, the sun, and cosmic rays, not Al gores theory of it being all man’s fault will mean that people are mentally suffering with the facts that are real, after years of believing the phony Al Gore crap would mean there is a “loss of social cohesion?”

    Considering the current percentage of our population self-identifies as hard-core lib – which to me means comfort with dependency, general whininess and inability/unwillingness to cope – I’m not impressed or concerned. Not to make light of trauma, schoolchildren tend to answer in line with a bias, especially if it’s couched in subjective and emotional terms.

    I haven’t clicked over to read the full article, and am not sure it would be worth the time. “The paper, prepared for the Climate Institute..”. Paid for by the same people who supplied the single page out of the thesaurus to the weather channel, I’ll wager.

    “I Believe This To Be True – Because Al Gore is Batshit Crazy”

    I agree 100% with your conclusion. And for further proof, I have anecdotal evidence that all the hot air produced by Algore himself, over the past decade, has caused mental illness. i.e. He has singlehandedly driven thousands of people, including myself, CRAZY. I say we launch a class action suit.
    And think of the chillren who saw his faked pictures of the polar bears. They’re RUINED.

    I laughed out loud when I heard on TV today, that although the HUGE, BIG, BAD HURRICANE hadn’t turned out to be as bad as expected, “we need to be aware that there were 50 to 65mph wind gusts!!!!”

    Holy jehosephat! In Texas we call that Summer! Wind gusts at that speed happen all the time! ……We don’t “evacuate” millions of people over this. Gawd!

    Climate change, the perception of climate change, or even the discussion of the possibility of climate change is enough to drive the socialist maggots into paroxysms of drooling insanity.

    Thanks for that, TMT. I really miss Michael Crichton. I already liked his books, but when he published “State of Fear”, which for the first time (IME) stated unequivocally in popular lit the investment the ruling class had in herding their lessers via fear, I adored him.

    I’ve done my best to combat nannyist pandering one child/GC at a time. If a kid falls down and doesn’t need stitches or a cast, they get one of two responses right off; “did you break the ground?” for the little ones, or “come here and I’ll pick you up.” for the bigger ones.

    Michael Crichton has done years of research into how fear paralyzes our world. So has John Stossel. You’ll remember that at one time, both were a bit liberal in their viewpoints. Until they did the research…

    @avafromtexas –

    I keep a text file open with the HTML tags I use the most. I include both the opening and closing tags. I find that if I type HTML into my comments on the fly, I will invariably forget some closing tag. This way, I just copy / paste the opening and closing tags together and then type what I want inbetween them. No mistakes that way. I only use a few:

    blockquote
    strike
    a (anchor for the href=””)
    b (bold)
    i (italic)
    bold and italic together

    Quick, without too much difficulty. I do it this way because I don’t have a preview. Not that I’m complaining, BFH! Please don’t ban me.

    I like to tell the warming alarmist kooks that I want it to get warmer. It’s fun watching them freak out about it. If there is an Earth Day gathering around where I live, I’m going to show up with a charcoal grill, steaks and chops, and tiki torches.

    It’s my opinion that craziness has nothing to do with it, unless it’s crazy to create authoritarian rule using a scam of global warming to create it. Considering Gore earned somewhere near a billion dollars on the global warming scam, and lives in a 30,000 square foot home that gobbles more energy than it takes to produce food for Michelle Obama(and lost his wife in the process – she must know what I believe), he’s no more crazy than swindler Bernard Madoff, or any other crook in or out of prison.

    Dr. Crichton’s book ‘State of Fear’ is what first brought to my attention the massive smell of bullshit in climate change.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_Fear

    Hansen, one of the ‘this’ll make me rich’ shills for AGW, hated it of course.
