Alarmists' Hype Worsens Mental Illness

Remember earlier stories on "Eco-Therapy"? Here you go. All this fear and FOR NO GOOD REASON. Mankind is NOT heating up the planet through fossil fuel usage. But this is just another example of how alarm, interventions, and so-called "solutions" are far more harmful than the supposed climate ills they're trying to overcome.

A recent study has found that global warming has impacted the nature of symptoms experienced by obsessive compulsive disorder patients.

Climate change related obsessions and/or compulsions were identified in 28% of patients presenting with obsessive compulsive disorder. Their obsessions included leaving taps on and wasting water, leaving lights on and wasting electricity, pets dying of thirst, leaving the stove on and wasting gas as well as obsessions that global warming had contributed to house floors cracking, pipes leaking, roof problems and white ants eating the house.
