Environment and Climate Change Canada research demonstrates that three-quarters of Canadian kids feel helpless about climate change. Another two-thirds described their climate emotions as "sad."
According to Blacklock's Reporter, which broke the story Wednesday morning:
Researchers said that 'younger respondents 18 to 34 were more likely to be afraid of the impacts of climate change on their friends and loved ones’ lives (74 percent) and to feel helpless and sad (64 percent) about climate change impacts.'
The impacts of constant climate fear-mongering are not contained to the most impressionable. In April 2022, a man died of injuries after self-immolating in front of the US Supreme Court to protest climate change inaction.
The Canadian survey of kids was based on 2008 respondents nationwide for $56,000 to Leger Marketing.
