Looks like she's been self-medicating.

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.

Prof Norgaard holds a B.S. in biology...

I have a hunch that I know what the "B.S." stands for, in this instance...

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. ;-)

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.

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.

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”.

OK now if anyone needs help is the sheep which sit there and repeat bumper stickers especially this idiot in that photo.

The left are so thick that they cannot even see how stupid they are or how pathetic they are.
Hell, they’re laughing stock and live in a dream world and they wonder why many make fun of them and think liberalism is a mental disease.

I figured this had to be a parody article from one of the a-holes who like to hurt the site by posting phony articles. But, Good Lord, it's for real.

"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,"

Note that there are no actual scientific disciplines in there. Professors of the soft sciences have always longed to be taken as seriously as physicists, chemists, and mathematicians are. Much mischief has been born of this professional jealousy, not least of which is Marxism itself, which took one crackpot economic theory and imbued it with the magical word "scientific" and, boom: hundreds of millions dead.

What a loon! If the planet Earth gets warmer, so do the other planetary objects in our solar system. If the planet gets cooler, so do the other planetary objects in our solar system. Hello loon, it’s the Sun at fault here! Mankind is not doing it, whatever you call it - global warming, global cooling, or climate change. It’s the Sun and other natural forces at work. Other natural forces being volcanos, magnetic forces on the core, etc.

Did you know that Europe has just gone thru one of the coldest winters in many years - our Media goons didn’t cover it because that would go against the mantra of AGW/ACC blah blah blah. The last time I read about it a few months ago, 500 people had died due to the extreme weather (not climate). As a resident of Michigan, I am thrilled with the mild winter - an answer to a prayer - You are right on the money!

It’s the curse of the “i” names.

All those poor women born of flower children who thought it was so “cool” or “empowering” to spell their daughters’ names with an i instead of a y...... yeah, most of those women went on to be “Prof. Norgaard”.

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

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.
