The University of East Anglia has launched a project that aims to help students cope with rising climate anxiety. Students told reporters at the launch that they feel “hopelessness anger and despair” about climate change.
According to the BBC:
They worry how they will live in a world with an unpredictable climate and the destruction of nature.
On Thursday a new survey found that 45% of UK students worry about climate change once a week or more.
Literature student Meg Watts, 22, said that she had experienced depression after being overwhelmed by the scale of problems facing the planet. And she sought therapy after developing disordered eating when trying to cut out food packaged with plastic.
The new programme was developed with mental health charity Norfolk and Waveney Mind, who realised young people were coming for counselling about their fears about climate change.
Common worries were about food security and whether or not to have children, explained Ruth Taylor from Mind. “Young people are trying to get ready for what is coming,” she suggests.
The project aims to address taboos around climate anxiety and give students the skills to manage their feelings. The organisers say it’s one of the first university projects in the UK to address the issue.
It includes a series of so-called climate cafes – an informal group session where people discuss their feelings – and an eight-week course that teaches students how to turn feelings of despair and anger into “hopeful action”.
But, temperature doesn’t follow Co2. Co2 follows changes in temperature. The sun is responsible for temperature changes on Earth.
This is irrefutable and also the reason why none of the IPPC climate change models even mention the sun.
Are students aware of this? Apparently not.
What a psyop. If it’s true that students believe that procreation is killing the planet and if it’s true that more and more of them need counselling to prepare them for what is to come, then what a psyop.
