Why you are all fucking nuts

Higher temperatures increase suicide rates in the United States and Mexico

Linkages between climate and mental health are often theorized but remain poorly quantified. In particular, it is unknown whether the rate of suicide, a leading cause of death globally, is systematically affected by climatic conditions. Using comprehensive data from multiple decades for both the United States and Mexico, we find that suicide rates rise 0.7% in US counties and 2.1% in Mexican municipalities for a 1 °C increase in monthly average temperature. This effect is similar in hotter versus cooler regions and has not diminished over time, indicating limited historical adaptation. Analysis of depressive language in > 600 million social media updates further suggests that mental well-being deteriorates during warmer periods. We project that unmitigated climate change (RCP8.5) could result in a combined 9–40 thousand additional suicides (95% confidence interval) across the United States and Mexico by 2050, representing a change in suicide rates comparable to the estimated impact of economic recessions, suicide prevention programmes or gun restriction laws.

So, the alarmists are trying to link one degree over a century to increased suicide?

Why is it so Hot, wahh wah wahhh

I swear if it gets just one degree hotter there's no telling what I'll do!

Like put on a Speedo and go lounge in my backyard with a drink poured into a hollowed out pineapple, and I'll drink the shit out of it, with a Goddamn big ass Plastic straw.

And not care if that straw ends up in the ocean and added to great mid Ocean dumpster heap. And you know there will be burgers on the grill, made from methane farting Cows.
I'm gonna grill just one patty but I'll use a whole bag of Charcoal.

When a liberal calls you fucking nuts, it's because they want to steal your platform.

This is junk science analysis wherein you can support or debunk anything.

Please reference the mountain of literature on seasonal depression as a contradictory theory (some suggest this is also junk science).

Speaking of suicides, Trump really left our Veterans hang out to dry. What with their 20+ suicides a day, they’ve been fighting for their rights to Cannabis as medicine and dickhead Chump just doesn’t care about our Veterans.


So, if Trump gave cannabis to every veteran, they'd go to zero suicides?

Really?

So let's consider, it this is true, eventually it will be so hot the suicide rate drops the population, which lowers the CO2 and Methane emissions...

Not sure if there is a direct link to T change and depression. If so, folks would be jumping off buildings when they go to Cancun from Minnesota during the winter.
