Report links global warming with mental illness; "skeptical environmentalist" scoffs
The Daily Caller ^ | 08/31/2011 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 08/31/2011 10:26:30 AM PDT by martosko

A report from Australia’s Climate Institute which links global warming with mental illness is already drawing eyerolls from a central academic in the global climate-change debate.

In its report, the anti-carbon emissions organization argues that a spike in severe weather events in Australia coincides with increased rates of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress and substance abuse.

Bjorn Lomborg, a Danish professor and environmental statistician, and a cautious believer in global warming — but also an advocate for sound and rational decisions about how to fix it — told The Daily Caller the study is “problematic.”

Cutting carbon emissions to slow a mental health epidemic down the road, Lomborg says, is an extreme reaction that makes it difficult to take global warming and climate change advocates seriously.

They are definitely linked - believers in AGW are mentally ill.

Well, I gotta say that those who follow the global warming faith are frickin' crazy.

So maybe there is something to it...

The belief in anthropogenic global warming is a mental illness, a condition that commonly afflicts liberals and progressives when they buy into their own scams.

They are actually causing mental illness in children making them feel depressed because they make them think that they have no future due to all the Gore-Bull Warmed Over Apocalypse Hysterics.

And they call Glenn Beck a fear monger? Glenn Beck has nothing on Al Gore and his Carbon Terrorism.

Romney stated that he believes in AGW and that Moslems are misunderstood. Romney is worse than rino Rick Perry..

Their premis had merit but their application was incorrect.

Mental illness is the cause for belief in global warming.

Anyone who disagrees with algore is mentally ill now. Not only that, but the aliens hate them and will kill them, if given the chance.

These kooks are desparate but this is how they talk amongst themselves about “the masses.” They are really freaks of nature.

Does it also cause Zionism? That’s racism, after all. Or does Zionism cause global warming?

Well, not global warming per se, but the belief in it. That's no big shocker. Have you ever SEEN Al Gore?
