Climate-change scepticism must be 'treated', says enviro-sociologist
Dubious on warmo peril? You're the kind who'd own slaves
Scepticism regarding the need for immediate and massive action against carbon emissions is a sickness of societies and individuals which needs to be "treated", according to an Oregon-based professor of "sociology and environmental studies". Professor Kari Norgaard compares the struggle against climate scepticism to that against racism and slavery in the US South.
Prof Norgaard holds a B.S. in biology and a master's and PhD in sociology.
"Over the past ten years I have published and taught in the areas of environmental sociology, gender and environment, race and environment, climate change, sociology of culture, social movements and sociology of emotions," she says.

Just what we needed: More healthcare!
The economy has been said to have been boosted by the mild winter, why don’t we ever hear about the benefits of climate change?
Maybe we should treat people who want to return to an ice age.
St. Jude, Patron of Lost Causes, pray for us.
I have a hunch that I know what the "B.S." stands for, in this instance...
What comes to mind is from the movie ‘Freaks’:
“One of us! One of us! Gooble-gobble, gooble-gobble!”
Kari looks and sounds like a serious candidate for a padded cell.
The guy who co wrote the climate books with Newt Gingrich (Terry Maple) considers “environmental psychology” to be one of his areas of study.
If Norgaard held a M.S., it would be More of the Same.
And, if she held a PHD, it would be Piled Higher and Deeper.
Oh, she’s an “enviro-sociologist”. Too bad. If she were a socio-environmentalist, I’d say we should listen to her. ;-)
“Over the past ten years I have published and taught in the areas of environmental sociology, gender and environment, race and environment, climate change, sociology of culture, social movements and sociology of emotions”
All absolute wastes of money by a waste of DNA.
Meanwhile people in India and the rest of the world are driving their kids into math and science. One day we’ll have a word for them - Boss.
"Take the next exit, honey, The kids want to stop at McDonalds."
While you're at it, offer a petition up to St. Gabriel Possenti.
These environmentalists are like folks who try to write a novel without using the letter “e.” It probably could be done, but why go to the bother?
I’m not the kind who would own slaves; I’m the kind who WILL shoot anyone trying to enslave me. The AGW crowd are just this century’s version of phrenologists. Except these morons are dangerous.
That’s what the Soviets did to their dissidents...some of them,at least.Instead of the Gulag they were sent to “hospitals” where they were medicated.
The question my Dad would have asked about this dame was “how much does she charge to haunt a house?”
And those who do not follow the political orthodoxy are mentally ill. Who in recent history made such amazing discovery in psychology? Yuri Andropov, who, as head of the KGB, sent dissidents and refuseniks to “mental hospitals”.
