Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

A few sobering shocks may be around the corner

Psychologists may be right!

Nothing short of a cluster of large scale disasters would wake people up—and keep them on their toes!

“Psychological barriers like uncertainty, mistrust and denial keep most Americans from acting to fight climate change, a task force of the American Psychological Association said on Wednesday.” Reuters reported in Psychological barriers hobble climate action.

What wasn’t addressed by the task force of the American Psychological Association, however, are the issue of mind control and culpability:

  1. How many of those factors introduced into the human experience nexus are INTENTIONALLY added.
  2. Which of their members are responsible for the mind control operations?
  3. Which private/government organizations, special interest groups, corporate bodies foot the bill?

The Reuters report continues:

Policymakers, scientists and marketers should look at these factors to figure out what might prod people take action, the task force reported at the association’s annual convention in Toronto.

Did you have the feeling what was about to follow? The solution to the problem is one that must be [and can be]  found by policymakers, scientists and marketers [sic] within the existing framework of  global economy [sic.]

While most Americans — 75 percent to 80 percent in a Pew Research Center poll — said climate change is an important issue, it still ranked last in a list of 20 compelling issues such as the economy or terrorism, the task force said.

Any wonder why “economy” and “terrorism” are manipulated to the extent they are to keep the real issue, climate change [also depletion of resources and ecosystem collapse—ecocide] way down at the bottom of the pile?

Despite warnings from scientists that humans need to make changes now if they want to avoid the worst effects of climate change, “people don’t feel a sense of urgency,” the association said in a statement.

Don’t worry, they will!  A few sobering shocks may be around the corner.

Numerous psychological barriers are to blame, the task force found, including: uncertainty over climate change, mistrust of the messages about risk from scientists or government officials, denial that climate change is occurring or that it is related to human activity.

In a little while, all of the above could turn out to be academic. There are those forces of nature that are beyond the spinpower of Rand Corporation and the likes.

Other factors include undervaluing the risk. Even though an international study showed many people believe environmental conditions will worsen in 25 years, that could lead some to conclude that they don’t have to make changes now.

Do you smell FEAR? These psychologists have a very low fear threshold.

Some people believe anything they do would make little difference and they therefore choose to do nothing.

They may well be right. However, the difference is a “quantum” one. The observer action, regardless of the observer’s certainty in the perceived outcome, will determine her fate.

Habit is the most important obstacle to pro-environment behavior, the task force found.

Do consumption junkies stand a chance?

But habits can be changed, especially if changing saves money and people are quickly made aware of it. People are more likely to use energy-efficient appliances if they get immediate energy-use feedback, the task force said.

Do ethanol junkies stand a chance?

It identified other areas where psychology can help limit the effects of climate change, such as developing environmental regulations, economic incentives, better energy-efficient technology and communication methods.

So the whole thing is yet another spin. The “mother of all spins,” as it were, created by the shrinks because it’s packed with subliminal conditioning, laced with oxymoron like “economic incentives,” and shrouded in the vagueness of phrases like “better energy-efficient.”

If you thought lawyers were bad, you probably didn’t know the evil some shrinks get up to—and not just in their spare time.
