A doctor in British Columbia has diagnosed a patient with “climate change,” prompting a round of social-media ridicule from those who, among other things, demanded to know where they could get their “climate change vaccine.”
The scenario was revealed in a report at the Climate Depot.

Another said he preferred the term “ClimateDerangementSyndrome,” having misspelled “derangement.”
It was the Times Colonist that reported on the move by Kyle Merritt, the head of the emergency-room department at Kootenay Lake Hospital in Nelson, B.C.
When a patient in her 70s came into the ER – while the province was suffering under a recent record-setting heat wave, he turned political.
“She has diabetes. She has some heart failure. … She lives in a trailer, no air conditioning,” the doctor said. “All of her health problems have all been worsened. And she’s really struggling to stay hydrated.”
He fretted about how the emergency department could “cool someone,” and noticed people running out to stores to buy spray bottles, the report said.
Then the smoke from fires arrived. And Merritt determined that it had made a case of asthma worse. He apparently reached his tipping point and decided to reach out to dozens of other doctors.
And he “picked up his patient’s chart and penned in the words ‘climate change,'” the report said.
“If we’re not looking at the underlying cause, and we’re just treating the symptoms, we’re just gonna keep falling further and further behind,” he told a reporter. “It’s me trying to just … process what I’m seeing. We’re in the emergency department, we look after everybody, from the most privileged to the most vulnerable, from cradle to grave, we see everybody. And it’s hard to see people, especially the most vulnerable people in our society, being affected. It’s frustrating.”
Merritt also said wildfire smoke even made it worse for patients already suffering from depression or anxiety.
The doctors coalition now is insisting that the government declare an “ecological emergency” and attack the fossil fuel industry.
The Climate Change report confirmed that others already are advocated using “climate change” as a cause of death on death certificates.
“Climate change is a killer, but we don’t acknowledge it on death certificates,” explained Arnagretta Hunter, from the Australian National University school of medicine. “There is second component on a death certificate which allows for pre-existing conditions and other factors.
“If you have an asthma attack and die during heavy smoke exposure from bush fires, the death certificate should include that information.”
However, the report noted meteorologist Anthony Watts debunked a lot of the agenda, with, “New data shows the global climate-related death risk has dropped by over 99% since 1920. Despite the near-constant caterwauling from climate alarmists that we are in a ‘climate emergency,’ real-world data, release[d] at the end of 2020 shows that climate-related deaths are now approaching zero.”
