New Study Reveals Climate Change Could Prompt Tens of Thousands Additional Suicides in U.S. and Mexico by 2050

New research found a link between rising temperatures and suicide, indicating that unchecked climate change could lead to additional 9,000 to 40,000 suicides across the United States and Mexico by 2050.

One could argue this is a self-correcting feedback system. Fewer people equal less climate impact

I wouldn’t argue with that. Not only does nature has it’s ways of correcting, it also has a tendency not to ask opions on how to do that.

Sadly, it will be the poor who pay the cost of climate change. As usual.
The rich can afford air conditioning, which will exacerbate the problem of global warming, of course (by increasing demand for electricity).
