30 years ago, those of you who followed my writings would know that I began to talk about “global stress”. It was in my early work with my self-growth and genius methodology which I call Supernoetics®. I didn’t actually mean stress around the planet (plenty of that since then!) I was really thinking about stress factors that affect us all, as a universal background condition to living and wellbeing.
You know the kind of thing: famine, climate change, crop failures, war, volcanic night, pandemic, economic meltdown, crazy fundamentalist terrorists… one of them might even let off a nuclear explosion.
It was something we all had to learn to live with. But the stress was there. It was something inescapable. These were threats that would engulf us all, if they came to pass. There could be no protection from “positive thinking”, “trusting in God”, or just hiding. We are all in this together.
The scariness of 20th century living was made immeasurably worse by the grotesque caperings of the mainstream media. Never tell the truth—even if it’s good—when a lie can be planted and fanned into flames, seemed to be their aim. They worked and made their living by generating fear, hate and violence.
Yes, violence. Numerous studies (all heavily suppressed) make it very clear that what goes out on TV or in the newspapers—and these days in blogs and newsfeeds—has a direct and immediate effect on people. It causes them to react. Suicides cause more suicides. Mass killings lead to more mass killings. War and conflict leads to more war and conflict.
They can duck their responsibility but the truth remains the truth: MEDIA IS EVIL.
Nothing has made that more clear than in the recent worldwide frenzy that corporate and media have deliberately, cynically and dishonestly manipulated their stories to create FEAR. Raw fear. Even now, with the regulations relaxed, people are still wandering about with facemasks on. Ha! Might as well use barbed wire to keep out mosquitoes.
Viv and I call them “beakies” because the latest fashion masks, which stand out clear of the mouth and nose, look like a beak appendage! Mocking them is not the point; the issue is, they have been manipulated, with false statistics and propaganda, into believing they are danger in the presence of others and must, at all costs, shield themselves from harm.
WHO: Climate Crisis Poses Serious Risks for Mental Health
As if to prove my point, people are reacting everywhere, finding suddenly they cannot cope. Depression and insecurity is rampant, suicides have climbed astronomically. Now we read that climate change has a detrimental impact on mental health worldwide, making it critical for countries to include psychological support in their climate response plans, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).1
It seems to be especially affecting younger people. There is some research into the mental health effects of climate change, specifically among youth. In the largest survey of climate anxiety in young people to date, nearly half of the 10,000 teen and young adult respondents said that climate anxiety affected their daily lives and ability to function. Nearly 60% were “very” or “extremely” worried about climate change.2
This is intolerable. We are tearing up the world, squandering their future, leading them to fearful states of insecurity. AND WE HAVE DONE IT.
See the breathtaking original at:
Environmental factors, such as air pollution and food insecurity, along with socioeconomic effects, like forced climate migration and environmental inequities, can all lead to increased levels of stress, trauma or grief linked to climate change.
We now have some silly (but very serious) mental health conditions, like “climate change anxiety”, “ecological grief” and (silliest of all) “solastalgia,” defined as distress from ecosystem losses caused by environmental change! –algia means pain, which is why it’s silly!
Daft as the labels are, the condition is real enough. According to a WHO policy brief released June 3rd this week at the United Nations’ Stockholm+50 conference, as the climate crisis becomes more severe—causing extreme heat episodes, floods and wildfires as well as ecosystem changes leading to food or water insecurity—it exacerbates social and environmental risk factors for mental health disorders.
Climate-related mental health effects are likely to disproportionately impact vulnerable groups, depending on factors such as socioeconomic status, gender, age, or history of other mental health conditions.
The WHO policy brief concurs with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which outlined mental health conditions associated with climate change in its February 2022, marking the first time top climate scientists emphasized the psychological impacts of the crisis.
Sorry? Climate scientists (alarmist climate scientists, see below) are advising the world on mental health issues?
Worrying About Nothing
There is only one trouble with all this concern, which is that “climate change anxiety” is being created and deliberately fanned by the mainstream media. It’s a plan. It’s a war on innocence. It’s based on lies.
Half the science community does not believe in global warming. The evidence is just not there. The hysteria is being manufactured but it’s not based on reality. Unfortunately the expert dissenters are simply being silenced by those with a wicked agenda to run. It’s hard to know the truth when half the evidence is held back.
Remember Greenland was named over 1,000 years ago. If it was green there has been a lot of cooling since then! And the ice now melting again does not represent a new threat, just a cycling of change.
We know that NASA has been “adjusting” its temperature records for years, to fake the idea the earth is warming.3
Even if the earth was warming, the crazy attempts to blame human emissions as the cause just does not make sense: a tiny shift in the Sun’s orbit or position has repeatedly produced catastrophic change in climate conditions (such as the cooling and warming of Greenland). Repeated volcanic explosions have produced disastrous and sudden cooling—in a matter of a year or less, never mind the decades of human activity.
Well, it always warms up again soon afterwards, doesn’t it? That’s not “global warming”.
Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history…When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.” – UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist.
The so-called “consensus” is a farce. There is no consensus, as over 31,000 dissenting scientists from the USA alone refuse to accept the IPCC position. Of course they are dismissed as “climate change denialists”, so that people will ignore them. [http://www.petitionproject.org]
Science is not about consensus; it’s about verifiable facts and truth. There is no evidence and no honest science supporting the IPCC’s dire claims. Models unsupported by observations are valueless. You can program a computer to output whatever you want! The IPCC is long on climate models, but short on actual evidence.
Humans critically overheating the atmosphere is pure political propaganda designed to cost us money and restrict our energy supply.
Yes, But What About “Greenhouse Gases”?
CO2 is neither a pollutant, nor a consequential greenhouse gas. CO2 is an essential plant nutrient. If CO2 in the atmosphere were ever to drop below 150 ppm, all plant life would die, and that would be the end of us. Double the CO2 in the atmosphere and you can double the size of plants. We’re in a CO2 “famine”, even at 400 some ppm. 1,600 ppm is earth’s long-term average. Over 1,000 ppm is ideal for plants. Plus, the plants use about 20 percent less water in a CO2 rich environment. Ask any hothouse grower.
All life is carbon based. A carbon tax is a tax on life itself. Demonizing CO2 , one of the essential building blocks of all plant life, is immoral. All life, including human life, benefits from more CO2 in the atmosphere, not less.
Stay cool (yeah, bad joke!)
