I assume that those 30% also get their news from Fairfax, the ABC, BBC, Reuters, AAP etc, and believe every word of the government’s alarmist climate change propaganda.
Having whipped up so much fear over the past decade, it’s little wonder that such a high proportion of those with a predisposition towards anxiety and OCD behaviour cite “global warming” as a major concern:
A new study has found that many people with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) are worrying about the effects of climate change and global warming.
Researchers from the University of Sydney looked at patients attending an anxiety disorders clinic.
They found one-third of the patients had anxiety about the effects of climate change.
Their behaviours included checking and rechecking pets water bowls, light switches, taps and stoves.
Researchers say while these behaviours are common in obsessive compulsive disorder, the rationale was unique.
They said they were checking appliances to reduce their global footprint.
Researchers say theirs is the first study on the impact of climate change in patients with obsessive compulsive disorder.
They recommend that doctors be aware of the anxiety in the community about climate change. (source)
What a world we live in, where the mainstream media (abetted by the government) literally scares thousands of vulnerable people out of their wits.
Maybe there should be some kind of media regulator after all… /sarc.
