Last year, an anxious, depressed 17-year-old boy was admitted to the psychiatric unit at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne. He was refusing to drink water. Worried about drought related to climate change, the young man was convinced that if he drank, millions of people would die. The Australian doctors wrote the case up as the first known instance of "climate change delusion."

Robert Salo, the psychiatrist who runs the inpatient unit where the boy was treated, has now seen several more patients with psychosis or anxiety disorders focused on climate change, as well as children who are having nightmares about global-warming-related natural disasters.

Everyone has seen it. You're the only one that didn't block it out of your mind completely.

In the 70s the worry was the impending ice age.

Luckily they had pot and free love to take the mind off the impending frozen tundra.
Then the free love turned in to the HIV and the fear of the deadly penetration.
Luckily we had bad synth/pop music and an MTV that played videos as well as cocaine to take our minds off of deadly sex.

Ah, the good ol' days.
