This is an extract from Quadrant on a piece about the rat-baggery of the climate cult. It is an insight into the minds of the mentally unwell.
It’s only when you read such a tight compilation of unhinged rants, lunacy, gibberish and thinking out loud like this, that it confirms that this is nothing to do with climate or science and it’s not that you’re a denier of climate change (it does) but it merely confirms that you’re actually sane.
It further confirms that this is nothing less than a cult of extreme religious fundamentalism, that like all religious fundamentalism recruiting tools, has been cleverly tailored to tap into the paranoid fears of the already hysterical, vulnerable and mentally unwell with all manner of borderline psychosis and delusions.
And if it wasn’t climate they would gravitate to something else.
People like this at some point have been dropped on their head and need something to give meaning, purpose and power to their miserable lives and are determined to drag the rest of us into the same climate, sideshow alley hall of mirrors.
The trouble is that because of the international politics of it all, the lunatics are winning.

Dr Verlie provides dramatic quotes from her undergrad students. I suspect that before the kids had even hit RMIT, teachers groomed them through 12 long years of wallowing in climate hysteria, not to mention cravings for socialist world governance. There is so much insanity in the excerpts below the most extreme symptoms of derangement warrant underlining to make them stand out from the pack
♦ I’ve been crying myself to sleep a lot lately. And crying at random times too. It’s not as though I watch a video about climate change, and I cry during it. I mean sometimes that happens. It’s more like, something little happens, like my toast burns, and I have an existential breakdown because I think it’s a metaphor for how the world is burningbecause we aren’t paying attention.
♦ I found myself dry retching in the shower for over an hour one evening. The contractions of my stomach muscles, sense of my throat exploding, and my whole body convulsing, felt like I was trying to spew up some kind of demon, a wretchedness, a loneliness and desperation, a sense of loss for all that could have been but probably won’t, for that which is but will no longer be.
♦ I feel bitter towards individuals and systems and fail to understand why people are not being charged for climate crimes.
♦ It [climate] is a constant reminder that the Earth is f****d.
♦ The future, for me, is dark, cloudy, a black hole of uncertainty. I don’t know how it will play out.
♦ Our knowledges and ignorance about climate change will impact who will live and who will die.
# I am constantly butting heads with sceptics and non-believers (particularly my father-in-law) regarding climate change. It is so frustrating that fellow inhabitants don’t understand the magnitude of the situation, and worse still, they don’t care to learn more about it.
♦ It’s like, on warm, sunny winter and early spring days, with the light glistening through young green leaves. Everyone is happy due to the nice weather. But knowing about climate change, you know it means someone somewhere is not getting the rain they need. [Actually warming promotes rain,check with Prof. Andy Pitman at UNSW]. So it’s sort of, you can’t enjoy it, it’s an uneasiness amongst the glory that everyone else seems to be celebrating.
♦ I was thinking of the dark, foreboding nature of climate change, its creeping horror masked by invisibility in the here-and-now of hyperconsumptive capitalism. Sometimes I see climate change as a chasm opening up before me, and I stand on a precipice overlooking the deep ravine, teetering on the edge.
♦ My totally cynical view is that non-fossil-fuel-based energy production will only become the norm once the renewable-energy corporations can provide more money than fossil fuel corporations in bribes to political interests.
