Ecological Awareness Has Its Benefits

Crossing paths on our collective and non-partisan path back to the caves, Dennis Prager alerted me to this hilarious story about eco-anxiety:

Melissa Pickett, an eco-therapist with a practice in Santa Fe, sees anywhere from 40 to 80 eco-anxious patients a month. They complain of panic attacks, loss of appetite, irritability and unexplained bouts of weakness, sleeplessness and "buzzing," which they describe as the eerie feeling that their cells are twitching. Pickett's remedies include telling patients to carry natural objects, like certain minerals, for a period of weeks. Making environmentally friendly lifestyle changes can also prove therapeutic, she said.
What a ripoff! What is wrong with our civilization, where we can't even train proper shamans any more? We are losing the ancient wisdom of our ancestors.

Everybody knows in their hearts that putting a bone through your nose, wearing a grass skirt, dancing around fire, and eating the brains of climate enemies is the progressive, Green method of frightening away demons before they can destroy the harvest. You don't need an expert to tell you that.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

:-) Great post!

What I see is true is that people are worried about climate change. And worries may become in depression. It is that simple. Then it comes the marketing to invent a new word...
