Guest essay by Eric Worrall

On the 18th of this month, Dr. Alex Wodak, a high profile Australian expert on drug rehabilitation, named fear of climate change as one of the major problems driving young people into the kind of despair which leads to addiction to hard drugs, during his testimony to the NSW Government Ice Inquiry.

An excerpt of the transcript which has just been made available is below;

First, the threshold step is redefining drugs as primarily a health and social issue rather than primarily a law enforcement issue. Second, drug treatment has to be expanded and improved until it reaches the same level as other health services. Third, all penalties for personal drug use and possession have to be scrapped.

Fourth, as much of the drug market as possible has to be regulated while recognising that part of the drug market is already regulated, such a methadone treatment, needle and syringe programs, medically supervised injecting centres. It will, of course, never be possible to regulate the entire drug market. We have regulated parts of the drug market before. Edible opium was taxed and regulated in Australia until 1906 and in the United States Coca-Cola contained cocaine until 1903.

Fifth, efforts to reduce the demand for powerful psychoactive drugs in Australia have had limited benefit and require a new focus. Unless and until young Australians feel optimistic about their future, demand for drugs will remain strong. Young people, understandably, want more certainty about their future prospects, including climate, education, jobs and housing affordability. Change will be slow and incremental, like all social policy reform.

As Herb Stein, as adviser to President Nixon said:
Things that cannot go on forever don’t.

Drug prohibition cannot go on forever and will be replaced by libertarian paternalism. Thank you.

How widespread is fear of extreme climate change?

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 51% of people under 35 believe it is at least “somewhat likely” that humanity will be wiped out in the next 15 years (h/t ClimateDepot).


Posted on September 23, 2019 | by Scott Rasmussen  

Over the next 10-15 years, 29% of all voters believe it is at least somewhat likely that the earth will become uninhabitable and humanity will be wiped out. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 71% disagree and find it unlikely.

The totals include 10% who consider it Very Likely and 37% who say Not at All Likely.

There is a dramatic difference by age on this question. Half (51%) of voters under 35 believe it is at least somewhat likely humanity will be wiped out in the next decade or so. Only 12% of senior citizens agree (and only 4% of seniors believe it is Very Likely).

In the early days of the Cold War, many young people had similar concerns that the world would be destroyed by nuclear weapons. Another generation was convinced that overpopulation would devastate the human race by the 1980s. While we do not have comparable polling data for those periods, the response of young people today seems very similar.

Obviously most people under 35 will grow out of their climate fears, just as a previous generation overcame their fears of the cold war and nuclear armageddon.

But not everyone will make it.

How many children’s lives are being ruined right now, because over half of young people in the USA believe there will be no tomorrow?

When will the educators, the alarmist scientists, the sensationalist media, the unscrupulous politicians, who have promoted climate fear and destroyed economic opportunities with their regressive carbon taxes and expensive green energy plans, who have helped drain our young people of hope and a reason to make positive life choices, be made to face the horrific consequences of their selfishness?

So being addicted to drugs is based on the anxiety produced by the propaganda promulgated by the global warming alarmists. So, it is easy to assign fault and guilt here. No one who understands the natural dynamics of climate are guilty of any of the syndromes suffered by current (clueless) youth.

Without doubt, there is a strong correlation (R^2 likely above 0.9) of illegal drug use with increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration since the beginning of the industrial age (ca. 1800).

People / corporations have made a huge amount of money from the climate scare. Addicted, depressed, frightened, and hopeless children and youth are just an unplanned side-effect. The social cost of the Green business sector.

A bright young seventh-grader, visiting us with his family, stated matter-of-factly that we had 2.5 years to fix the world and then it was all over. Reminds me of the fearfulness in the 60s, when global thermonuclear war hung over the heads of children and youth, many of whom expected to die young.

One major difference between the children of today and the actual adults in the room, is that the older ones have learned to look askance at any and ALL claims, by cultists ( of any creed) who claim to have special knowledge of the coming end of the world. Having lived through many such ‘crises’ that never happened, we have all become quite jaundiced and skeptical of these recurring claims! The young do not have that much insight or judgement and are more likely to fall’ for the hype and BS! The SADDEST part of it all is the number of adults who are listening to these children and BELIEVING them! As if they, the children, have more knowledge and insight into the ‘problem’! All we are seeing is the result of brain washing and propaganda from the Left, being regurgitated and REPEATED, ad infinity, by these children. When you repeat a LIE long enough, and LOUDLY enough, ‘some’ people will start to believing it! This just proves, once again, that there are a LOT of gullible people out there, and they aren’t all children!

The difference is, the Cold War and the potential of nuclear Armageddon was very real, not ideological fantasy as is climate hysteria. People – not just the young – got relief when the Cold War came to an end … not because people decided it was all a fantasy. 60,000+ nukes on alert was no fantasy.

If half of Aussie youth now believe the world will end in 15 years due to climate change, they will quickly learn it is all BS, simply with the passage of a few years.

The climate hysterics of course know that, which is why they are now amping up the hysteria for immediate radical action. Otherwise, they realize that the mere passage of a few years time will soon prove them to be the snake oil salesmen/charlatans that they are. There is in fact a limit on how long you can predict imminent doom before the masses figure out you’re bullshitting them.

The Left in the United States fanned the flames of terror in young people about nuclear Armageddon, and cited their fear as one of the many reasons the United States should unilaterally disarm. Even the adult lefties claimed to be perpetually traumatized by the fear of nuclear war.
But then something quite unexpected happened. The Soviet Union disintegrated. I worked on U.S. nuclear weapon delivery systems from 1980 until that blessed event, and never saw it coming.

Now, one would expect that people who were so traumatized that they marched in the streets to demand that their own country preemptively give up to the enemy would have expressed, at least for a moment, a sigh of relief when the threat disappeared. But no such sigh was ever heard.

Instead, the Left immediately began celebrating all of the money they would have to spend now that the Department of Defense didn’t need it any more. It was dubbed “The Peace Dividend.”

In my view, theirs was the most shameful performance any human beings put on since World War II. Not only did they show how utterly false their “concern” over nuclear war had been, they showed how willing they had been to scare the life out of children to get their way. And to top it off, they displayed the kind of greed one sometimes sees at the reading of a will for a deceased rich uncle whom the heirs all hated, but pretended to miss while they waited on tenterhooks to see what share of the loot they would get.

Yes, there was a concerted effort by the pacifists to try and stop Reagan’s placement of Pershing IIs and nuclear-armed intermediate range cruise missiles in Central Europe in the early 1980s as a counter to Russia’s buildup of SS-20 nuclear missiles. They were wrong in thinking that unilateral disarmament would ever convince the Soviets to reciprocate .. but that is not a form of “criminal propaganda” – it was a reasonable difference of opinion.

But still, the nuclear threat was real. I know – I was part of it. My job in the US Navy was to crew a nuclear attack submarine whose number one mission was to sink Soviet SSBNs before they could launch their missiles at the US. I knew, and thought hard about, the fact that if I and my shipmates were ever required to fulfill our mission, the US as a nation would likely already be a smoking irradiated hole in the earth’s crust, and all our family and friends and everything we knew as Americans would be vanished forever. It was always a sobering backdrop to doing our jobs.

I am thankful that the Cold War ended without a nuclear exchange, and no irradiated holes in the crust, and no destroyed nations and no hundreds of millions if not billions murdered. It was as real a threat as any that mankind ever faced. We must never let it get to that state again. Not by ending nukes, but by ending the kinds of wars that result in nukes going off.

“If half of Aussie youth now believe the world will end in 15 years due to climate change, they will quickly learn it is all BS, simply with the passage of a few years.”

That’s right. The alarmists have given everyone a deadline this time. So in less that 12 years that deadline will be here, and we’ll all see what, if any, changes have occurred with the Earth’s weather. My guess is Earth’s weather will be pretty much like it is today, 12 years from now. Maybe a little cooler.

Many drug addicts have irrational fears…but it’s a bit of a chicken/egg issue…

The best way to reduce fear is to provide factual information without the political spin…

Me thinks drug addicts will agree to anything that is suggested because they know it will be an excellent defense or excuse for why they became a “druggie”. They know that Judges will listen to “experts” at trial or sentencing time.

It really is a lost generation. In America I think it’s far more than 51% now who feel there is no point. They have no plans to marry or do anything else in life and work service industry jobs with no plans for an exit strategy. Once they get of work they make plans for the club or a concert. That is the entire point of their existence.

Even if there is a risk of a dangerous future by climate change the draconian measures proposed to mitigate climate guarantees a dismal poverty stricken future.
Better to confront the enemy we know and let the climate do what it always has which is change.
Young people see weather that is new to them and may interpret it as climate change. I have been an adult all of the 50 years of climate doomsaying and know that there has not been significant change. Certainly nothing new of the dangerous variety. The world is a much better place than 50 years ago and is most likely to continue to get better if policy makers do not panic

Speaking as a parent, grandparent and retired educator, I am apalled that so many adults are feeding so much despair and bad science to vulnerable children and young adults. I am even further incensed that much of the negative pressure is generated within the Western Education system itself.
Many adults, who should no better, are damaging the geberations they are supposed to preparing to o out into the world , not with terrible burdens, but with the sunny optimism that is normal for the young.

Let’s say all this bs started in 1988.
That is 31 years ago.
People under age 35 have never heard anything other than cAGW (in some variation).

A young person would have to investigate the issue on their own against a chorus
of the elders of society with access to newspapers, radio, TV, and movies.

It is interesting that what was supposed to happen after about 2070 is “seen to be happening” now or in the next 15 years. Unlike the teen from Sweden, I can’t see carbon dioxide — and I don’t see any catastrophic global warming.
The big threat when I was young was Polio. We could see that:

Note that I did not investigate the images of people with polio. I didn’t have too.
A teen in my neighborhood had it.

Do teens today see melt-water running off of glacial ice and believe ice is melting?

Under natural conditions, I’ve got about 15 years left before I check out.
I hope that is time enough for these 35 and under folks to realize what
went wrong with the cAGW they have been expecting.

Reply to  John F. Hultquist
September 27, 2019 9:10 pm

– Good post that I can relate to.

Some of my cohorts were hit with polio and I and my parents had a realistic fear of it until the Salk and Sabine vaccines hit. I well remember how gladly my mother herded my siblings and me down to the local school and standing in the long line where they were administering the vaccine.

That was a real problem worth worrying about and worthy of the money spent on finding a solution.

‘Climate Change’?!? Whatcha gonna do, switch from SPF 30 to SPF 50 sunblock? It’s not even in the same league. You’re spending money to do what, stop the next glaciation? We’re doing the opposite of that. (Good news… some people are getting rich off of ‘Climate Change.’ Can’t fault anyone for never giving a sucker an even break.)

The whole future climate change threat is invisible.
The purported cause is also invisible except, supposedly, to Greta.
All the so called evidence is also invisible or inaccessible to the vast majority of people. Virtually no one visits the Antarctic to see if any threat of collapse is imminent.
Only a very few northern residents or tourists at a Church hill garbage dump ever see a polar bear.
How many people actually get a good look at the GBR?
Can you actually get a measurement of ocean or atmospheric average temperatures for yourself?
How many get to see how exotic tropical island paradises are faring?
The workings of climate models and computers is indistinguishable from magic and incomprehensible to most.
Few can see the canned fossil fuel that probably was used for cooking and heat at night on Greta’s boat.
You can neither confront nor evade climate change but there are two options. You can prepare for possible consequences or you can march and whine at others to do something even if you have no idea what that might be.
It is fun to wander around with signs smeared with ridiculous platitudes. Even better if it is an excuse for a day out of school.
You won’t be told of the parties and hook-ups that happened after the marches yesterday. That would expose them as nothing more than a fun social event.
Do I sound like a Grumpy old man? That could be from the effect all this climate nonsense is having on me.
Is there a danger from climate change? YES. The result is chronic and severe nausea from all the crap that is being fed to us on a daily basis.

Create an atmosphere of of fear. Check.

Offer solutions to modify the manufactured fear. Check.

Get elected to implement those solutions. In progress. Politicians could care less about the problems, they want the power.

In the US this is the modus operandi of the Democratic party in the United States. They need a scared population who will turn to them for protection and salvation. They just have to keep them un-educated and dependent. Sadly, it’s working.

As I said previously here, the Psych Societies of Australia, UK, USA, even the Australian College of General Practitioners, have all declared themselves in support of the Great Climate Scam, so they will be trying to make this problem worse, not better. I do know of a couple of GPs who know it is false and one psychologist who might be able to help, but I guess these will have to keep their heads down.

People have to be taught to realize the truth about climate change. Climate change has been going on for eons long before mankind started to make use of fossil fuels, Climate change is happening so slowly that it takes networks of very sophisticated sensors decades to even detect it, Do not mix up true climate change with weather cycles that are part of the current climate. The reality is that, based on the paleoclimate record and the work done with models, the climate change we are experiencing today is caused by the sun and the oceans over which mankind has no control. Despite the hype, there is no real evidence that CO2 has any effect on climate and there is plenty if scientific rationale that the climate sensitivity of CO2 is zero. The climate change we are experiencing today is similar to that of the entire Holocene over the past 10,000 years. Our current interglacial period is slowly ending but it will take thousands of years for the next ice age to begin to develop. There is no climate crisis. Climate change during you life time should be inconsequential just as it was during you parent’s lifetime. AGW is a conjecture based on only partial science and turns out to be nothing but science fiction.

Climate anxiety IS a very real thing. I didn’t realize any of it until I went to the youth-led Zero Hour Summit down in Miami. Everything I heard was full of anxiety, but sadly little to no practical solutions. While there is a place for striking, it’s gotten a rep for not producing anything except volatility. All students want is to feel like they’re making a difference… and they can! Now, if only schools and districts will hear the cry and the solution (instead of directing everything to “teaching the test,” we could start to see some true, authentic change.

If this is in any way true, which I am sure it is, it means that the alarmist mafia is complicit in many tens of thousands of suicides and overdose deaths.
And it is a fact that for every person who ODs, many many more are addicted and living a life of chaos and misery that surrounds them and everyone they know like a big sticky dark fog.

It would include the message, “Children of the world: You will still be alive and the world will be fine.” On the deadline date it would be set forward another five years, and so on.

then throw in a dearth of jobs, massive rental prices and home prices
its amazing that more under 30s havent topped themselves , frankly.
it was bad enough growing up with the first of the late 60s grad teachers and their lies about global cooling n over pop and the start of the hard to get a job times from 75 onwards here..its gotten so much worse with every job needed some idiotic study course certificate etc to even make sandwiches in a snackbar!
so many regs to follow and fees to pay to even run a sidewalk stall that its not worth the effort for the little you will earn from it anyway.
the bigger issue is the low cost and amazingly available drugs TO be used.

Hmmm…. drug addiction in the young has been there for a while. Heroin and pot in the ’60s. Stealing Grandma’s prescriptions in the 90s and 2000s. Then it’s opioids, which everyone is getting even if they don’t want that crap. Now it’s vaping, which is inhaling flavored cannabis oil, which is apparently loaded with something that destroys lung tissue and kills the user.

There is now the slow but real influx of Eastern Equine Encephalitis, which is fatal, period, transmitted by birds to mosquitoes, and people are afraid of DEET so they won’t use it to protect themselves.

And fear of something they can’t control is driving more kids into getting stoned???? They’d do that, anyway. They don’t need an excuse, you know. They have nothing to cling to, no faith of any kind, never had it, never will, so they turn to getting stoned out of their minds. What happens when they turn 40 and have nothing to show for their lives?

What a waste!

I have no doubt that drugs are having a huge effect on climate psychosis, but it’s doctor-prescribed psychotropic drugs driving it rather than recreational drugs. A large number of people with debilitating carbonphobia that I’ve seen on twitter have admitted to being on some kind of psychotropic med for their condition.

The sad reality here is that the International movement, Extinction Rebellion XR is based on psychedelic use / addiction.

“I’d been trying to start a campaign of mass civil disobedience for years before Extinction Rebellion. I come from a coal mining family in the North of England and I’d always had an interest in social change, growing up I was part of the animal rights movement and I was 14 when I joined the Green Party. … There was a moment during my Iboga experience where I lay down and a voice that felt very external to me said “Gail, you create your own reality”. It spoke three times. It sounds so simple but right there and then I thought “OK then, I’ll be happy.” That was the essence of my entire experience, after which I could literally feel my brain being rewired. When I got home I ended a marriage and separated my family. It was a huge decision, but it was the right thing to do and I am a stronger and happier person now. ”

On this basis the co-founder of the Extinction Rebellion environmental movement has called for a mass ingestion of psychedelic substances in protest against the criminalisation of drugs, calling them “medicine”. She recommends regular use to assist in creative solutions to climate change, since shooting up is the solution for everything no doubt.

“I would support a mass civil disobedience where we take medicine to tell the state that they have absolutely no right to control our consciousness and to define our spiritual practice,” Gail Bradbrook said.


XR’s other cofounder Roger Halam, is currently on remand in HM Prison system. https://rebellion.earth/2019/09/17/message-from-roger-hallam-to-fellow-rebels/

These are the people leading the Climate Protest Climate strike. To call them irresponsible would be a mere slight. The damage to young minds , based on their “passion” for the planet, which is a nothing but a veil for Psychedelic drug usage affirmation, is incredibly pervasive and destructive. The exact opposite usually occurs when young people, or any people for that matter, become addicted to psychedelics, paranoia, anxiety, depression.

Is Climate Change more frightening than fear of imminent nuclear war? I doubt it. Of couse I didn’t have a smartphone or the internet to play chicken little on.

The newfound ability to broadcast one’s phobias has brought the nervous nellies out of the woodwork. And having the moral support of thousands of likemindless people emboldens them to flail about aimlessly.

Nothing new there. Fifty years ago they would have joined Hare Krishna, Scientology, Reverend Moon, or become fundamentalist Bible students.

And as always, there are the sociopathic leaders that know exactly how to manipulate these flocks for their own ends.

I have my doubts about Ms Thunberg’s autism. She seems too adept at social manipulation.

“Obviously most people under 35 will grow out of their climate fears, just as a previous generation overcame their fears of the cold war and nuclear armageddon.”

No Eric. People got over the Cold War because the Cold War ended.

The actual fear of nuclear war was also actively supported by the fact that both sides were actively building and displaying weapon systems. No modelling. No theories. No abstract studies completely independent from supporting hard data.

The other point about the Cold War was it WAS actually something humans could control. Muse on that one.

Mother’s Little Helper
Song by The Rolling Stones


What a drag it is getting old

“Kids are different today”
I hear ev’ry mother say
Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she’s not really ill
There’s a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day

“Things are different today”
I hear ev’ry mother say
Cooking fresh food for a husband’s just a drag
So she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steak
And goes running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

And two help her on her way, get her through her busy day

Doctor please, some more of these
Outside the door, she took four more
What a drag it is getting old

“Men just aren’t the same today”
I hear ev’ry mother say
They just don’t appreciate that you get tired
They’re so hard to satisfy, You can tranquilize your mind
So go running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

And four help you through the night, help to minimize your plight

Doctor please, some more of these
Outside the door, she took four more
What a drag it is getting old

“Life’s just much too hard today”
I hear ev’ry mother say
The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose
No more running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

They just helped you on your way, through your busy dying day

The MSM have nothing to contribute to “the news”.

Their message “worth” 50 years ago came to succumb.
