Reality

Here’s a good one:

 The White House has now enlisted doctors and nurses in their global warming propaganda campaign, trying to frame the argument that climate change is detrimental to one’s health. The central message: doctors should warn their patients that global warming could make their health worse.

sad doctorsAs if. Doctors talk mostly about their golf games. I guess they could stretch to fit in some climate change connection to heat stroke on the 7th hole, or deeper water hazards after monsoons in Westchester but I have my doubts that this is the part of the doctor-patient conversation that the patient would take away. Sometimes doctors like to talk about their luxury vacations, so maybe something about how choppy seas disrupted the butler service on their cruise to Polynesia?

[sidebar: My husband had some serious surgery recently and when we went for the post-op check up, that doctor recounted for us the first time he used “the parktronic” feature of his new Mercedes to automatically parallel park. Can’t see how we can work climate change into that one.]

Nurses, on the other hand, talk to patients about how they had to come out of retirement and get back to work after their husbands lost their jobs.

  1. Because it is “not normal” to deny the climate change… What’s next, mandatory psychoactive drugs for the intransigent?

  2. This is in addition to having to ask if patients have guns? At the hospital where I work, at admission we have questions about if the patient has legal problems against them with finances, restraining orders, etc. If they didn’t have anxiety before they came in….

  3. They also are constantly looking at a computer screen now thanks to he who shall go unnamed. Climate change? What tree did the person who suggested that fall out of? He/she should get a real job in the real world!!!
