      Extreme weather has been linked with negative impacts on the human body, and high ambient temperatures are associated with higher incidence of kidney disease in industrial workers — and a weakened immune response to certain pathogens.

      Some researchers are confident that both issues could have better outcomes if climate change was approached as a mental health problem.

      As reported by Medical News Today, Dr. Marina Romanello, the research director of the Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change said, “It is fundamentally a health crisis we have on our hands — much of what we talk about when talk about climate change action, climate change mitigation has to do with healthier lifestyles, with reducing the burden of disease through more physical activity, through healthier, more plant-based diets, through reduced exposure to air pollution and other environmental determinants that damage our health.”

      This is one more excuse for the mass murders. They kill people because of climate change.

      Climatic change can lead to flooding and drought which cause anxiety and depression to farmers before or during sowing periods.
      Also, climatic change causes some regions to be extremely cool and due to effects, the demand for drinks such alcohol increases which may cause mental conditions

      Mental health is supposed to be treated as a different entity. Change in behaviour due to extremes of climate can not come under mental health as its less of mental trauma than physical trauma in terms of extreme heat or cold that is affecting the behaviour. Climate change is serious and it has hazardous effects but not everything has to be related with mental health.
