We Must Pass ObamaCare to Save the Planet

Not only will the passage of ObamaCare inject epinephrine into our economy's flaccid veins, but also will be the first step in saving the planet. The open-ended, loophole filled thousand page legislation will open the door for the President to unleash his psychological counselors upon the Anthropocentric Global Warming Denier Syndrome that plagues our unwashed masses.

According to Reuters through Yahoo!:
Psychological barriers hobble climate action

Despite warnings from scientists that humans need to make changes now if they want to avoid the worst effects of climate change, "people don't feel a sense of urgency,"...

Numerous psychological barriers are to blame... uncertainty over climate change, mistrust of the messages about risk from scientists or government officials, denial that climate change is occurring or that it is related to human activity... undervaluing the risk.

Habit is the most important obstacle to pro-environment behavior,...

But habits can be changed, especially if changing saves money and people are quickly made aware of it. People are more likely to use energy-efficient appliances if they get immediate energy-use feedback,...

It identified other areas where psychology can help limit the effects of climate change, such as developing environmental regulations, economic incentives, better energy-efficient technology and communication methods.
ObamaCare psychologists can dismantle these barriers erected by deniers and save the planet.

Decarbonize or Lobotomize!
