The New Mental Illness Leftism Created

“Eco-anxiety” is the latest buzz-word for younger generations trying to put climate change in perspective. Apparently, it’s a legit mental illness created by lying leftists.
Meet Jennifer Newall. She’s spent years working on the forefront on climate change, as one of the globe’s leading researchers.
The BBC explains:
Her PhD on melting ice sheets and changing sea levels had taken her to Antarctica, Scandinavia and the USA but it was while leading a workshop for primary school children in Glasgow that she began to question what she was doing.
“It dawned on me,” she says. “The physics behind this haven’t changed in my lifetime. They’re not going to change going forward.”
Jennifer says she realized action was needed urgently and she no longer had the passion or motivation to continue studying the effects.
She put her career on hold in order to take more direct action but she found the scale of the challenge overwhelming.
Jennifer is one of a growing number of people who have experienced “eco-anxiety” – a chronic sense of hopelessness and fear of environmental doom.
“It presented itself as depression and anxiety,” she says. She felt completely paralyzed and often unable to get out of bed.
It was during what she describes as her “eco-grief” that 33-year-old Jennifer decided she could not have children.
She says: “I don’t feel like I can have children, because a) the world can’t cope and b) I would feel guilty bringing any child into this world.”
More than half the world’s population actually believe our planet is doomed. Thanks to people like Al Gore and AOC, who sound the false alarms as loud as they can, these people suffer from the guilt surrounding their inability to fix the global climate.
Meanwhile, the very leftists sounding these alarms ‘can’t see the forest for the trees,’ so to say.
Part of the Great Hypocrisy.
Leftists say they care about the environment and cutting our reliance on fossil fuels. However, research says windmill farms have an ugly little secret. “Turbines require lubrication. On average, a 5-MW (megawatt) turbine holds 700 gallons of oil and hydraulic fluid; like car oil, these need replacing every nine to 16 months.”
It gets worse. “When the industry claims that a 5-MW wind facility can power 3200 homes, it usually omits the word “intermittently.” Because wind blows intermittently, IWTs cannot provide uninterrupted, reliable power to a single home, hospital, smelter, factory, data center or bitcoin mine 24/7, 365 days each year. IWTs need continuous backup power available 100% of the time.” In other words, windmills can’t replace the power grid.
Those electric cars aren’t so great for the environment either.
Do you know the facts?
- EV battery production can adversely impact the environment, such as a loss of biodiversity, air pollution and decreased freshwater supply.
- EV batteries consist of materials like nickel, lithium, cobalt and others, which are energy-intensive to mine. These minerals are also often mined in regions with a poor environmental record. Take, for example, the lithium mining currently happening in Argentina. According to Time, Argentina accounts for 21% of the world’s lithium reserves and plans are already in place to open 13 more mines (in addition to the two already in production). Many worry the mining could cause massive destruction, corrupt an already fragile ecosystem and pillage the country’s natural resources all in the name of “green progress”.
- EV battery recycling methods are still in their early stages, but they are not specifically designed to be recycled.
- EV tires wear out faster due to the heavier weight and increased torque of the vehicle. Expected lifespan on EV tires is only between 30,000 to 40,000 miles. This means you’ll be buying tires more often and thus contributing to increased emissions.
I could go on. We’ve written about Obama’s green energy scams many times, such as the solar letdown. Those companies were nothing but a big fat flop.
Unfortunately, climate change isn’t the only policy leftist hypocrisy continually attacks.
Leftists pretend to care about the economy. However, the almighty dollars is losing value at record speeds. Inflation is rampant. companies are closing, the workforce is crippled. Leftists pretend to care about families. However, the border is no longer secure. Families aren’t safe. Human trafficking, sex trafficking, drug trafficking- all continue to grow out of control under this administration. Fentanyl is being manufactured to look like candy so as to attract young children. Unfortunately, one pill kills, and just recently, Texas state troopers seized 3.1 million lethal doses of fentanyl during a single traffic stop in the border town of Mission.
When dealing with leftists, it is just one crisis after another- all riddled with hypocrisy. It’s no wonder we need new mental illness labels just to keep up with the damage leftism does. Sadly, the destruction digs deeper with each passing generation, just waiting for a voice of reason to cut through the confusion and bring common sense back to the front lines.
