Yes, But How Many Pshychiatry Visits will Obamacare Cover?

OpenMarket.org:

The American Psychological Association’s “Task Force on the Interface Between Psychology and Global Climate Change” published its report this week:

Many people are taking action in response to the risks of climate change, but many others are unaware of the problem, unsure of the facts or what to do, do not trust experts or believe their conclusions, think the problem is elsewhere, are fixed in their ways, believe that others should act, or believe that their actions will make no difference or are unimportant compared to those of others….Some or all of the structural barriers must be removed but this is not likely to be sufficient. Psychologists and other social scientists need to work on psychological barriers.

Translation: If you’re a green skeptic, the APA thinks you need a shrink.
