LA Times: Children “literally organizing out of climate anxiety”

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

LA Times reports that children are so distressed by what they have been taught about the alleged climate crisis, some are committing suicide. Others are embracing radical climate activism as a coping mechanism for their climate mental health crisis.

For young Californians, climate change is a mental health crisis too


Without reducing those emissions, climate change will make natural disasters, food shortages and rising sea levels even worse, experts say. The world is not yet on track to make the changes necessary to ameliorate its worst effects.

Climate depression played a central role in teenage activist Greta Thunberg’s political awakening, and according to Varshini Prakash — executive director of youth-focused climate activism group the Sunrise Movement — it’s not uncommon for her group to meet kids who have contemplated suicide over the climate crisis.

Lifestyle changes “empower individuals to feel like they can act,” said Abby Austin, 23, the political lead for the Sunrise Movement’s L.A. branch — echoing medical professionals who say that even small personal actions can help people feel like broader change remains possible.

Getting involved with activism can serve a similar function. Many young Californians said volunteering with climate advocacy groups like the Sunrise Movement or for politicians who have made climate change a central plank in their platforms has given them a sense of purpose. 

“A lot of the people who are in Sunrise,” Austin said, “are literally organizing out of climate anxiety.”

Read more:

Feed kids a constant diet of climate anxiety; some commit suicide, some turn to radical activism, some choose to become vegans or withdraw from life or vow to never bring children of their own into what they believe will be a ruined world.

The solution is obvious. Stop frightening the children.

Parents in a war zone don’t take young children out every day to see a bloody parade of all the mutilated corpses, they try to shield their kids from the horror, to give their children as normal a childhood as possible, even in the most impossible circumstances.

But climate activists don’t seem to behave that way. Activists seem to delight in “preparing kids for the future”, by feeding them as much horror and misery as they can pack into a school day. When the kids get home, the indoctrination is far from over. The kids get to tune into often government funded climate documentaries, to reinforce the unhappiness they learned at school.

No wonder the kids end up so messed up.

Even if you believe that the climate crisis is real and imminent, even if you believe we are all going to die in the next few decades, taking joy from the lives of children is an unspeakable act of cruelty.

At the rate this ‘fear mongering’ by the Activists, MSM, Government, etc., is growing your state and community will be next. It’s not about the
“Climate Crisis” it’s about grabbing raw power by politicos. I would’ve thought given what we are currently living through, with the ‘Pandemic’ , you would’ve recognized this power grab similarity? But the ‘Piper must be paid’ government budgets next year will be a disaster – tax revenues will be cut in more then half and they will come for more tax revenue increases via the ‘fear action’.

Kids are going to believe what adults tell them. If the adults are ignorant, then they teach this ignorance to the children.

I feel sorry for the kids today. They have a bunch of socialitsts trying to manipulate them and brainwash them.

I see where a grade school is being sued for, in effect, accusing grade school kids of being racists, if they are white, and requiring them to acknowledge their crime of being born white.

Parents, you better look into what your children, even your very young children, are being taught in the schools today. Much of it is radical, leftwing propaganda meant to deligitimize the United States and ultimately destroy it.

Radical Socialists are not above using your kids for their own political purposes. And that’s what they are doing now.

Put a stop to it.

A few months ago I was asked by some parents to meet with their high-school-aged daughter, She was so worried about climate change that she literally had trouble sleeping at night. She felt like there was no point in getting married and having kids, since the world was going to be ending soon. The parents were not equipped with the information needed to try and counter this, so they asked me to come talk to her.

I went in expecting to meet a young girl who had been indoctrinated with all the typical CAGW talking points, but instead, all I saw was a scared teenager. As I started asking her questions, it became clear she was clueless. She was not a STEM student, and she new almost nothing about the science. All she knew was that the world was ending, and it was our fault.

All I could tell her was a few things to maybe counter the hype, and told her to educate herself and form her own opinion. For teachers and the media to be scaring kids like this without giving them the tools to evaluate the science it is almost a crime.

Lee — I have told such kids about all of the predictions of disaster when I was becoming aware of the world in the 1970s, particularly from all the scientists predicting catastrophic cooling, but also running out of resources, starvation from overpopulation, pollution — not to mention nuclear war.

There are sites that compile these — I think showing all these false apocalyptic predictions could be very helpful.

I like to point out (to adults!) that those, like AOC, predicting imminent disaster are further from the “establishment science” than outright deniers. It’s like a kid’s game of “telephone”, where the message gets distorted and amplified each time it’s repeated.

@Lee Scott: I have done two “interventions” (aka de-brainwashing sessions) in situations similar to the one you describe. Both successful apparently. I asked the parents of one kid if they had considered getting psychiatric advice. They said the best way to answer was to send me an email with some links on the subject. Mind-boggling. So far, it appears that the entire psychiatry and psychology industry around the world is in lockstep with this climate alarmism insanity. Their solution is to make the problem worse. I fully expect to be asked to help kids who are suffering from the treatment, as well as the disease. “Climate grief” is being treated with  “Great Turnings”, or “Collapse-Transcendence” methods.

When you read something in the news you might think it’s normal but that’s backwards. The news reports things that are abnormal.

Never mind climate anxiety, there’s an actual mental health problem for youth because of smartphones and social media.

“If they would rather die,” said Scrooge, “they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.”

A better solution would be to have these kids actually live a carbon-neutral existence for awhile instead of whining about it and demanding that someone else act. They might then learn how blessed they actually are to be living in the physical comfort of the 21st century and would get over it.

It’s message removes the stigma of human cause of global warming and addresses the inaccuracy of the model predictions. I think it would be a good place to start if you know any worried youth.

Good point Brent. None of this would be foreign to Vladimir Lenin’s and the current equivalent Chinese Communist “Young Pioneers” or Joseph Goebbels’ “Hitler Youth”, and channeling in this way a youthful sense of grand mission (while implying their life will be wasted if they don’t make a major difference for the cause) is the common currency of more recent radical counterparts as it lays the groundwork for a multi-generational program. It is parental naivety that hobbles any resistance to this societal manipulation of children, whatever it may cost them in shed blood.

Climate anxiety is reportedly a serious problem among children. Our schools have been active in spreading this false alarm. I have written several missives to the Alberta Teachers Association and the Alberta Minister of Education, strongly advising against this harmful and unscientific nonsense.

So the left is willing to scare children with an existential threat, CAGW, in order to recruit them into their political future. The last brain function to establish itself is gamma waves, which are 25 up to about 140 hertz, and which waves coordinate other brain activities into coherent interaction, and this gamma wave pattern is established somewhere around age 19 to 21. It could be argued, carefully, that a person is not entirely of “free will” until this last brain function is established. Scare kids about CAGW? Convince them they need gender reassignment? This is not a good trend.

One reason is that the parents themselves aren’t educated enough on the issue, and do not know how to counter the specific arguments that come from the AGW side. As we all know, they have a response to every objection, and unless you know better, it can be convincing.

December 28, 2020 3:33 am

The journalistic article, trying to discuss a serious problem, uses an extremely alarmist tone on the climate, adding gasoline to the fire. This phrase is quite an example “The Earth’s temperature has skyrocketed since the Industrial Age, fueled by human activity and accompanying greenhouse gas emissions. Dramatic reductions in those emissions, and in fossil fuel use, will be necessary to prevent temperatures from reaching a tipping point by 2030, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned two years ago.”
Interestingly, the link of “skyrocketed since the Industrial Age” is to an article in the newspaper itself that does not add anything to support the alarmist phrase. The climate scaremonger is full of these “circular references” without any evidence to support the goofy things that are said, especially the tone that is used.

We published in 2002 that there is no real global warming crisis. It has always been a deliberate fraud, promoted by scoundrels and believed in by imbeciles – wolves stampeding the sheep.
I published in March 2020 that Covid-19 was a relatively mild flu that was only dangerous to the very elderly and infirm, and the lockdown of the low-risk under-65 populations was NOT necessary. It was another scam.
Then elitists all over the world linked these two huge scams, saying “To solve one we must solve the other” – totally irrational nonsense– and a false segue to their ultimate scam – the Great Reset”.
The “Great Reset” proposes that a few rich elitists live like all-powerful Princes, and rule over the poor oppressed masses (that means YOU) – essentially the Chinese Communist Party model – It is TREASON.

The Big Picture:
The global warming / climate change scam, the Covid-19 full-Gulag lockdown scam, the specious linkage of these two huge frauds, and the leftists’ “Final Solution”, the Marxist “Great Reset” – aka “Live like a Chinese peasant”.

“We published in 2002 that there is no real global warming crisis. It has always been a deliberate fraud, promoted by scoundrels and believed in by imbeciles – wolves stampeding the sheep.”

I think that’s a pretty darn good description of what is happening.

You know it *has* to be fraud. Anyone who is interested in the climate and weather has looked at all the regional surface temperature charts available for the world.

All these regional surface temperature charts show it was just as warm in the recent past as it is today.

If CO2 were the control knob of Earth’s temperature, then it should be warmer today than in the recent past when much less CO2 was in the atmosphere. But it’s not warmer today than then, which demonstrates that CO2 is *not* the control knob of the Earth’s temperatures. More CO2 today, not any warmer.

So the Climate Fraudsters are certainly aware of all this, yet they proceed to create a computer-generated *global* surface temperature (modern-era) Hockey Stick chart that looks nothing like the regional charts. Instead, the Hockey Stick chart shows the temperature profile to be warming for decades (by computer-generated cooling of the Early Twentieth Century, to make current years appear warmer) and today is the warmest period in human history.

It’s a fraud. The fraudsters are telling you a lie using a computer to create a false reality. We are not living in the warmest period in human history. The unmodified, regional surface temperature charts, documented by humans beings with no climate change bias, put the lie to this “hottest year evah!” false reality, and to Human-caused Climate Change/Global Warming.

At the NASA link below you can compare the regional surface temperature chart profile of the US (Hansen 1999) on the left, with the fraudulent Hockey Stick chart on the right of the webpage.

All unmodified, regional surface temperature charts from around the world resemble the temperature profile of the US surface temperature chart, where it shows that it was just as warm in the Early Twentieth Century as it is today.

None of the unmodified, regional surface temperature charts resemble the “hotter and hotter” temperature profile of the Fraudulent Hockey Stick chart.

That ought to tell you all you need to know. CO2 is a benign gas that has very little to do with the Earth’s temperatures, as proven over time. We have more CO2 in the atmosphere today but it’s no warmer than in the recent past with less CO2 in the atmosphere.

The Fraudulent Hockey Stick chart is the *only* “evidence” the Alarmists have. This is the only thing supporting the Human-caused Climate Change House of Cards. And it is obviously bogus and fraudulent to anyone who cares to look with an unbiased eye,

This one computer creation is causing all sorts of problems. To the point that some maniacs are trying to take our freedoms away from us over it. Over a blatant, obvious Lie.

Just what’s needed — children becoming radicals earlier, tearing down society instead of contributing to it.

They never had it worse, either. Unless children understand history they are going to be forced to live “worse.”

The reason they don’t realize they have it so good is that they have no understanding of history.

BTW, the fear thing is working wonderfully. Trump signed the omnibus bill that will continue to cripple all sources of energy except wind and solar.

Yes, and all those Republicans who are hesitating about increasing payments to Americans from $600 to $2,000, voted for the omnibus bill with billions of dollars of political pork in it, but they now get religion and decide helping the American people through the pandemic costs too much.

It’s a myth that Republicans are fiscally conservative. They voted for every bit of the 30 TRILLION dollars we now have for a national debt.

Congress is clearly broken when it comes to the national budget. The only way to fix this problem is for Congress to give the president the Line Item Veto. Congress cannot discipline themselves, so they need the president to help them out when they get carried away with unnecessary spending.

I believe Mao did this same sort of thing to motivate the youth in the 1960s. He got them so worked up and their minds so weakened that he was able to convert them to a ransacking army in a moment (which he did). Weak minds are malleable minds.

Children “literally organizing out of climate anxiety”

I know absolutely NO children who are ‘organising out’ of anything.

‘Organising’ is something activists do. They may then gtather a host of disciples and proceed to brainwash them. But it’s not a childhood occupation…

December 28, 2020 7:48 am

When children plead with their parents to stop driving them everywhere and insist on walking to school again, then I’ll believe that they have serious cases of climate anxiety.

December 28, 2020 7:52 am

Unable to convince adults they are focusing their attention on children, an act of the lowest moral character, to get their plans through with the next generation and they don’t care how much damage it does. Socialists never do.

December 28, 2020 8:36 am

Worst part about this, it is all nonsense, pure propaganda, a scam, HOAX !
China has 1,260GW of energy produced by Coal, and ALL is belched straight into the air !
US has only 240GW, and we scrub it to almost nothing.
China will build ANOTHER 290GW ! ! !
This is just another way to weaken the US.
If we go back to the Paris Accord, this will cost the US TRILLIONS and paying 80% of a HOAX ! ! !

From this article:
“Climate depression played a central role in teenage activist Greta Thunberg’s political awakening, and according to Varshini Prakash — executive director of youth-focused climate activism group the Sunrise Movement —”

Here’s a tweet from Greta that Tom Nelson just pointed out is a bit of a contradiction to what she’s said in the past:

“There’s a myth that young people get anxious or depressed when people talk about the reality of the climate crisis.
My experience is the opposite. …”

It appears that something was said and reported that is untrue and the News source didn’t bother to fact check it which resulted in them giving fake news.
Waiting for Twitter to spot and flag this as fake news.

I cry ROYAL B&LLSH*T – This type of deceit is designed to appeal to “mothers” so that they will adopt the green mile agenda. Mothers will do ANYTHING to protect their chilluns especially when someone else is guaranteed to pay for it.

There isn’t a shred of truth to this article. An analogy is that covid deaths are being attributed to anybody that dies for any reason. So if a child commits suicide it will be chalked up to “climate change” to get more people on board because, “WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN” is what drives mothers’ opinions.

If you want to be scared about something, read the WSJ story today on the conviction of the citizen journalist in China who covered the story on the pandemic control effort in Wuhan.

HONG KONG—A Chinese court imposed a four-year prison term on a citizen journalist who documented how Covid-19 ravaged the city where the coronavirus was first detected, in a case that underscores the lengths to which Beijing has defended its official narrative of the pandemic.
Zhang Zhan, 37 years old, was convicted of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” after a roughly 2½-hour trial at the Shanghai Pudong New Area People’s Court on Monday, where prosecutors accused her of spreading falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic through social-media posts and interviews with overseas media, her lawyers said.

Anyone with school age children or grandchildren should have them home-schooled or, at most, in a carefully vetted private school. Government schools in the U.S. have been abusing children for decades, and not just about climate. Even right-minded, well-intentioned public school teachers are put under orders to push the propaganda at risk of termination. Parents have been suckered or pressured into accepting the system, which now tries to incarcerate children as toddlers and keep pre-K – 12 kids all day, even in summer, feeding them all of their government prescribed meals as they indoctrinate them.

If you have any doubts, just sign up to serve a stint as a substitute teacher (doesn’t require credentials), and see what is happening in the classroom, and listen to the “teachers” talking in the teachers’ lounge. My daughter did this at the young age of 20 at one of the best-rated public schools, and she walked away disgusted. Yes, there are good teachers and administrators, but they are allowed little room to deviate from the script.

90% of the Earths history according to geologist there has been zero ice on the poles.

The central planners / Marxist want to control the world and do it via our socialist edumacation / indoctrination system.

They really do not mind breaking a few eggs to get their way. In a rural county 40 years ago it was starting to show now I would consider running your kids through socialized education camps child abuse. If you must run your kids because of your home situation at least spend the time making them prove, understand, and realize that actual science relies on questioning everything.

All one has to do is examine school science curriculums and if he can find any that presents balanced climate coverage it would be a near-miracle. Mind you, when you consider that these programs of study are constructed inevitably by leftists, it’s no wonder they’re all doom&gloom punctuated by regular denunciations of fossil fuels with regular promotion of alternate energies. So if parents are really concerned about the one-sided aspects of climate teaching, they should demand that both sides of the story be presented, particularly since the teachers themselves often know little of the issue beyond what the curriculum tells them.

My generation grew up in the 1950’s with the constant and very real threat of nuclear annihilation but our parents, behaving like responsible adults, protected us from that knowledge. What’s wrong with parents now? Don’t they know what it means to be adults?

December 28, 2020 7:41 pm

In Australia the taxpayer funded ABC, is running a relentless campaign on this climate fraud. They recently had Attenborough spruiking climate disaster on several programs..I have never heard such unscientific rubbish. They are making their own programs bringing in kids and getting them to make us save the planet. This is going on every day and they have stations in every state.

But the reality is that based on the paleoclimate record and the work done with the models, the climate change we are experiencing 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 of scientific rationale to support the conclusion that the climate sensitivity of CO2 is zero. It is all a matter of science. The children that you are speaking of have fallen victim to AGW propaganda. The reality is that the AGW conjecture is based on only partial science and is really full of holes. AGW is really a form of science fiction.
