Bad weather can have a negative impact on people’s moods and attitudes, leading to increased aggression and meanness. Studies have shown that people tend to be more irritable, short-tempered, and aggressive on days with bad weather, such as heavy rain or extreme heat.
In a fit of climate-change-fueld-anger, Greta started to scream and yell, causing the sky to darken and the wind to pick up. Suddenly, a torrential downpour starts, flooding the parade route and causing the celebration to be canceled. The townspeople were left to wonder if the climate activists anger had something to do with the sudden and unexpected storm.
The mean attitude of people can also have a negative impact on those around them, creating a “contagious” effect. People tend to mirror the attitudes and behaviors of those around them, and when someone is in a bad mood, it can be easy for others to pick up on that negativity and start to feel the same way. This can lead to a downward spiral of negative attitudes, causing a “rain on the parade” effect.
It is important to note that this is not always the case and not everyone is affected by the weather in the same way. However, as a general trend, people tend to be more negative on bad weather days. Further research is needed to fully understand the underlying mechanisms behind this phenomenon.
