The climatic Kali, bringer-about of global catastrophe: do not seek to deny her, for all our sages say that prayer rituals and sacrifice are the only means by which she may be appeased

How the climate theology has taken hold of people’s minds

Dalrymple comes across this paragraph in an article in the British Journal of Psychiatry:

Climate change is the largest global health threat of the 21st century, and despite limited empirical evidence, it is expected directly and indirectly to harm communities’ psychosocial wellbeing.

Dalrymple comments:

This is not so much science as religion, in which the destructive bringer-about of catastrophe, a kind of Kali, must be appeased by word, puja and sacrifice.
