Is Going Green Making You Crazy?

If so psychology to the rescue:

"Ecotherapy is the reinvention of psychotherapy as if nature mattered. It takes into account the latest scientific understandings of our universe and the deepest indigenous wisdom. This perspective reveals the critical fact that people are intimately connected with, embedded in and inseparable from the rest of nature, which shifts our understanding of how to heal the human psyche and the currently dysfunctional human-nature relationship. It becomes clear that what happens to nature for good or ill impacts people and vice versa, leading to new methods of individual and community psychotherapeutic diagnosis and treatment." -- Linda Buzzell

Or you could always try this - suicide machine lets you push final button if it's really gettin to be to much for ya.

I am all for the awakening of human consciousness but is it really necessary to take it to such extremes?
Yes we are all one with the universe and ought to be conscious of our relationship with nature but not to the extent that one needs to be in therapy to cope with the grief and angst of Global Warming and Climate Change.

And the latest report on climate change -- a United Nations panel warning of increased hunger, water shortages, massive floods, avalanches, and species extinctions in various parts of the world unless nations take major action -- is not likely to help.

People complain of panic attacks, loss of appetite, irritability and unexplained bouts of weakness, sleeplessness and "buzzing," described as an eerie feeling that their cells are twitching.

My question to you is aren't fears of the eco-anxious being fueled by media coverage of crises like global warming, collapsed fisheries and food shortages. Not to mention all the eco-disaster movies on Hollywood's drawing boards?

This sissyfication of America really annoying the hell out of me.
How about a dose of reality?
We are in the shape we are in because we are amoral and apathetic about what's really going on having turned our lives to the care and control of a Government that doesn't give a shit about you or me.
