Climate change and our psychospiritual health..well DUH!

Someone finally wrote it in the news, the disappearing species and changing landscapes of climate change are causing humans to become depressed! Gee what a surprise? We are inextricably and intimately dependent and allied to the land we live on. We like to pretend we aren't with our tv's and laptops, but we are. They are calling a form of homesickness, solastalgia. Not because you are far from home, but because home is changing before your eyes. Home is where the heart is, and our hearts are definately joined with the land we live on.
