The CBC, with their new commitment to hard-hitting climate journalism, publishes an op-ed by a man who orders too much takeout and is therefore experiencing eco-anxiety because of all the plastic containers he has accumulated. While this particular CBC op-ed may be useless fluff, the concept of “climate anxiety” is worth delving into. True North fellow Lindsay Shepherd discusses what “climate anxiety” is and how the leftist-socialist-environmentalist class uses these types of concepts as cop-outs and excuses for their bad habits.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
