Climate Change: The Nut-jobs have finally gor their own disease...I kid you not!

The following from: CO2 Science

The Debilitating Disease of Climate Alarmism
Volume 14, Number 28: 13 July 2011

Writing in the International Journal of Climate Change Strategies and Management, Searle and Gow (2011) say "there is a growing consensus that increased awareness about climate change is leading to negative emotional reactions in certain individuals (Fritze et al., 2008)," while noting that "expressions of negative psychological states relating to climate change appear in popular commentary, public opinion polls and increasingly in the medical and psychological literature (Searle and Gow, 2009)." And they add that "doctors are reporting that more and more patients, presenting with anxiety and depression, are citing climate change news as something that they are having difficulty coping with" and that "leads to distress and/or interferes with daily living (Fritze et al., 2008)."
The two Australian researchers note that "other climate related pathologies are also emerging," citing the work of Wolf and Salo (2008), who "described a patient with climate change delusions and visions of apocalyptic events who believed that his personal water consumption could lead to the deaths of millions of people," while they write of "an increase in climate-related obsessive compulsive checking behaviors such as checking: gas and power meters to monitor their usage; taps for leaking water; and petrol consumption via the car's odometer reading." In fact, they report that displays of climate change related obsessive and depressive behaviors has led to the creation of the term "carborexia," which "refers to individuals who have a fanatical desire to reduce their personal carbon footprint, to the point where it severely affects their lifestyle and normal daily activities."

Quote of the century:
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." Cicero - 55 BC

The merits or lack thereof of socialism can be debated, but you're completely wrong about climate change, which is accepted throughout the scientific community, except by nutjobs looking for attention. Denial in the face of massive evidence is its own disorder.

There can be no debate over the merits of socialism...history has proven that the only merit is 'equal misery'. Socialism is for the people, not the Socialists. In every Socialist state throughout history those in charge were far more well off than the peasants thus further dividing the rich from the poor...many poor and very few rich...
As for climate change...the climate has always changed throughout history and the scientific community for the most part agrees that the Al Gore alarmists are simply that...alarmists. No matter how many books you read concerning climate change you can be sure of one thing and that is the alarmists all come from the 'One-World-Order' clan namely the United was determined a long time ago that by promoting climate change fear (global cooling or global warming) it would prouduce revenues for something we have no control over...the weather.

As to why I even bother with somebody who hides behind a false indentity...I don't know.
But anyway you probably won't put much effort into my previous suggested reading because it appears that your closed mind may be permanent...but just in case here's the next page:
