Oh noes, worriers worry about warming

You don’t have to be a bit crazy to believe global warming is running rampant because of a few factories and a harmless trace gas essential to life on Earth and not the giant ball of nuclear hell in the sky, but it helps:

A new study has found that many people with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) are worrying about the effects of climate change and global warming. Researchers from the University of Sydney looked at patients attending an anxiety disorders clinic.

They found one-third of the patients had anxiety about the effects of climate change. Their behaviours included checking and rechecking pets water bowls, light switches, taps and stoves.
