Climate alarmism is a common trait exhibited by liberals, who greatly exaggerate perceived existential threats posed by the gradual changing of Earth's climate. Many predictions of environmental catastrophe because of climate change have been wrong.[1] Climate alarmists also advocate for spending massive sums of money for the environment, with one prominent U.S. representative claiming that an effective climate plan would cost at least $10 trillion.[2] By creating fear, climate alarmists are better able to advance their left-wing political agenda.[3]

Among other examples of the factual inaccuracy of their alarmism,[4] climate alarmists have invested in low-level islands despite claims that those islands will soon be underwater.[5]

The Daily Telegraph, of London, wrote:

  • In the late 1960s, eco-evangelists such as the best selling author Paul Ehrlich stated: "In the 1970s and 1980s, hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite any crash programs embarked on now ... Before 1985, mankind will enter a stage of scarcity in which accessible supplies of many kinds of minerals will be nearing depletion." [7]

  • Environmental alarmists, as an article of faith, peddle the notion that climate change is, as Greenpeace put it, "the biggest environmental threat facing...developing countries." For one, such thinking runs contrary to the public declaration of the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development-a program sponsored by the United Nations-which found that poverty is the number one threat facing developing countries.[8]

By 2019, voters were increasingly rejecting radical climate alarmist policies.[9]

In 2020, it was reported that therapists could provide a safe space for woke individuals that were suffering from their acute environmental alarmist concerns. This was to help those individuals develop coping skills meant to manage the emotional distress related to persistent climate change worries. The terms "eco-anxiety," "climate change distress," "eco-trauma," "eco-angst" and "ecological grief" were coined to acknowledge that hyper climate change alarmist concerns often included symptoms beyond those of other sources of anxiety. Potential symptoms could include: obsessive thoughts about the climate, anger or frustration toward people who don’t acknowledge climate change, fatalistic thinking, anxiety or panic, existential dread, feelings of depression, guilt or shame related to ones own carbon footprint, grief and sadness over the perceived loss of natural environments or wildlife populations.[10]
