NBC News put this out without even a hint of irony considering the doom and gloom predictions they help push on a daily basis:
Extreme weather and dire climate reports are intensifying the mental health effects of global warming: depression and resignation about the future. https://t.co/GyU9k8cjc4

When it comes to “dire climate reports,” the MSM and others have it more than covered:
When the U.N. released its latest climate report in October, it warned that without “unprecedented” action, catastrophic conditions could arrive by 2040.
For Amy Jordan, 40, of Salt Lake City, a mother of three teenage children, the report caused a “crisis.”
“The emotional reaction of my kids was severe,” she told NBC News. “There was a lot of crying. They told me, ‘We know what’s coming, and it’s going to be really rough.’”
The increasing visibility of climate change, combined with bleak scientific reports and rising carbon dioxide emissions, is taking a toll on mental health, especially among young people, who are increasingly losing hope for their future. Experts call it “climate grief,” depression, anxiety and mourning over climate change.
NBC News is among those who are doing more than their part to spread the fear.
You are the problem with your hysterical climate change reports. Most of these so called effects, if they are even true, will not happen in our lifetime.

The article also suggests a “10-step program for climate grief.” And if your climate grief isn’t bad enough yet, no doubt NBC News will be pushing more apocalyptic predictions in the not-too-distant future.
