We’re All Gonna Die! Global Warming Fear-Mongering

In today’s floor session, Sen. Ellen Anderson (DFL, St. Paul) raised concerns that kids are living in fear that they won’t grow up because “they’re gonna die of global warming”, as if it is some new contagious disease. Perhaps it is. It may well be a new psychological disorder spreading through ignorance, shame, groupthink and the fear of the unknown. Chicken Little infected her friends with the same anxiety disorder, leading them all into the den of a cunning fox that promised to help them get to the king and solve the problem of the falling sky.
