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.

You got that right - I am trying to remember something I read about mandatory psychological asssessments of every American due to the “untreated conditions” out there. Not sure if this is part of the Obamacare BS, but this is how they will identify people who are thinking rational human beings who don’t buy into the BS given the facts - then off to FEMA re-education camps we go.

Yes, these morons are dangerous

I first saw this at Climate Depot, your one stop shopping for all news about enviro-wackos. And, by the way, James Inhofe's book, The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future, is really good.

She’s a goofy and toothy as Jimmy Carter.

Just as commie, too.

Political dissent = mental illness. Last seen in the USSR

Obama: Republicans show signs of 'madness'

"You know, the idea you would keep on doing the same thing over and over again, even though it's been proven not to work -- that's a sign of madness," Obama said during a fundraiser in Portland, Maine.

That bit was run over this picture in USA Today:

Madness, indeed. Look at that vein in his forehead.

Another never been has-been heard from. Another of the "thousands of scientists" who support AGW?

Everything the looney tunes crowd base their hysteria on is CO2 as a villain. A totally unproven, fraudulently derived foundation rejected by real climate and sea level scientists.
Certainly no conclusive input on climate is possible from biologists and (*barf*) sociologists.

Hire the mentally handicapped and you never know what you'll get.

That is exactly what they did to dissidents in the former Soviet Union ...cart them off to mental hospitals and keep them drugged.

It doesn’t matter what they have to say, facts are not there friends. Global warming has happened many times before when there were several billion less humans and virtually no combustible engines.
President Obama is resurrecting this to avert attention from the bad economy. To co-opt something from Al Gore is really desperate.

She has a long and "distinguished" line of predecessors. It's called the medicalization of political dissent, usually throught the abuse of psychiatry and has been universally practiced by all manner of tyrants and fascists/communists (merely two sides of the same coin).

Her intellectual forebears include:

“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”
Gender and the evironment? Race and the environment?
WTF?

All absolute wastes of money by a waste of DNA.
Perhaps that was all this Mensa graduate could handle?
She has no clue what a "scientist" is.

“Science can never be prescriptive. All it can do is raise issues for the world's attention. It is politics and economics that then decide what to do about them. People who argue that the science says we must do something are being disingenuous about their true motives. If those people are also scientists, then they are abusing science. This is a tremendously important point.” --- Iain Murray, National Review, December 21, 2004

This poor sad waste of oxygen is incapable of distinguishing between voodoo science and the physical sciences. That says it all.

I’m a skeptic. I don’t need to be treated either. If you were educated like I am (which you are not), you would understand that.
