IPCC 8.5  is described on the climate lifestyle blog as "a pathway of the heart, a scenario of Unconditional Fear... It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds and resentments, and circulates a sacred metaphysical fluid of Divine loving energy through the body of  the entire ClimateSign Community." Though it's difficult to put a monetary value on sacramentals, awareness training  on the Climate Reality  circuit  can cost thousands.

The New age millieu of   metaphysical  Climate Awareness is  equally intriguing. An LA shop called Moon Juice.  is described on its website as a provider of "alchemy to nourish and elevate a climate of  beauty and consciousness". Some bloggers have unkindly called the shop's owner, Amanda Chantal Bacon, and her ethos "pretentious". However, Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan. She uses the shop's $55 "dust" as an ingredient in some the recipes of her lifestyle blog Goop. 
Moon Juice and Goop have been accused of selling "overpriced" and "pretentious"  climate memes

So, when Moon Juice said that a crime had taken place, it was bound to grab the attention of  bearded indie  climate film producers , and  rock singer Father John Misty, who is no stranger to dragging people on social media, recognized by the NME music site as"a certified climate communicator."
In an Instagram post that has been shared more than 9,000 times, an anonymous group calling itself the Heartland Institute Irregulars  claimed responsibility for the crime. But modeling locovores in Boulder Colorado claim they " aren't sorry for the act because "to claim that something has been 'stolen' is in itself a tacit endorsement of the capitalist values that blended superfoods and locally sourced produce stands, ironically, in direct opposition to."S
eemingly unconcerned by the warnings 
"The universe, however you may define her, brought this scenario l into our lives  at what can only be described as a 'tipping point'... While  we  sympathize with Climate Reality's  loss , we believe that there is a larger lesson to be gleaned from this experience: namely that material goods, no matter how sacred, WILL come and go from your life."
They  might have a point. The  Metaphysical Properties of Crystals & Climate Models blog notes that a  pathway may evolve into implausibility  and organically leave reality behind due to the following reasons: "divine intervention, giving us messages from angel foundations, focus groups,  or spirit guides that the empirical data  didn't resonate with our energy/vibration/ Perhaps  the pathway  was called to benefit someone else, possibly Peak Oil  opponents or Coal Bears  because  it served its purpose for us and had to move on."
