Mental Health Problems Increase With Global Warming: Study

In the study, those most vulnerable to mental health problems caused by rising temperatures included people with existing mental health conditions, those with lower incomes, and women.

The findings are consistent with recent work by other scientists, Dr. Jonathon Patz, a professor and director of the Global Health Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madision who was not involved in the study, told CNN.

He noted that people may be experiencing “stress and despair” occurring “as governments and industry fail to react at the pace recommended by multiple scientific assessments.”
