Prof Says Global Warming Skepticism Is Racism…Wants It Diagnosed As a Disease
Gateway Pundit ^ | March 31, 2012, | Andrea Ryan

Posted on 04/03/2012 7:44:01 AM PDT by Baynative

Professor Kari Norgaard has followed the lead of all the other Liberals who can’t use data and facts to win their argument. Professor Norgaard, from the University of Oregon, says to deny Global Warming junk science is “racism.” But, it’s even more absurd than that. If you reject the junk data, corruption, and blatant grab for power that is the Green Movement she wants you diagnosed with a disease. And treated.

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.

‘Resistance at individual and societal levels must be recognized and treated …

“This kind of cultural resistance to very significant social threat is something that we would expect in any society facing a massive threat,” [Norgaard] said.

The discussion, she said, is comparable to what happened with challenges to racism or slavery in the U.S. South.’

Hey Professor!

You may want to investigate the eugenics and overt racism behind the global warming insanity, before you go much further.

This hoax was invented to prevent further development in the third world, as part of the population control efforts of the elitists.
How many large scale, PRODUCTIVE power plants have been built on the African continent in the last 10 years?

Instead, international aid only allows for pitiful little, inefficient “renewable” plants to be funded and built there.

No wonder you’d rather ignore the facts and impose your agenda.

Yes, and I say to oppose those who deny Global Warming junk science is “racism.” So there! My intellectual argument is as good as yours! Your a racist! No, your a racist! No you!

Known for impeccable logic and keen penetrating wit, Professor Kari Norgaard chose academia when she learned that post-60’s hippy political activist was not a ‘paying’ career.

Religious belief in AGW/Climate Change comes under the mythical separation of Church and State, so STFU.

That might be the funniest picture I've ever seen!

She doesn't just look crazy, she looks like she's happy to be crazy and wants to tell you all about how freaking crazy she is.

I am positive that there are people in her circle who turn the other way and try to duck behind things when they see her coming.

Sick of this—liberal commies believe all who disagree with them are mentally ill. Next any who have a differing opinion will be forced into mental hospitals to be cured from their illness, as they did in the USSR.

The Soviets claimed that any of their subjects who disagreed with them and spoke out about it to be insane. The cure was to be incarcerated with the appropriate therapy (usually shock) applied until the subject agreed.

Interesting. Her bio has her having a BS in biology, and MS and PhD in sociology, with her areas of specialization being:
Environmental sociology, climate change denial in global perspective, environmental health, race and environment, gender and environment, sociology of culture, sociology of emotions, social movements.
(translation, she's a professional environmental activist).

She also has a bunch of grants from the Karuk Tribe, who own land along the Klamath River, and are behind a lot of the litigation about shutting off Klamath water to farmers

Sadly, I think they are winning the game, little by little. In the Pacific north west they have succeeded in tearing out the Elwha Dam (2nd largest hydroelectric production source) in the name of needing renewable energy so as to promote windmills ...go figure.

Lets assume man caused “global warming” is real.

Who? Tell me Who!?!? is more physiologically adapted to survive on a warmer earth?

If global cooling was the norm--where tall blue-eyed long-straight-blond-haired light-skinned narrow-nostriled marbled muscled mutations evolved through natural selection (if one believes such outlandish nonsense) in order to improve survival factors in near Arctic conditions was the norm the hoax of Man caused Global Warming WOULD be racist. BUT because the darker skin, flared nostrils, thick or nappy dark hair, brown eyed, and leaner muscled genes that protect us from a hot world are overwhelmingly dominant in the human race, Global Warming, man caused or otherwise is the natural state of the world...The White man is the true biological minority of the species which proves the earth has been warm much longer than it has been cool during Man's existence--which means of course, that the Leftist environmentalist wackos desire a world cooler and more comfortable to their fellow Lilly white limousine liberal hypocrites and the white man as a whole cuz --come on! like they give a damn about minorities anyway--take away their vote and see how long they give a s*** bout them!

You shine more light on the fact that the argument really has nothing to do with the environment. These people simply want to control all aspects of life on the planet.

Yep, and more people need to bounce leftists with this fact -

so we’ll just not bother talking about issue X, let’s discuss the pros and cons of an all-powerful State.”

Dear me.

It would seem that somebody at the University has decided that this sort of pronouncement doesn’t really reflect too well on the whole establishment, so they’ve gone and made the whole thing....statement, professor and all....just plumb smack disappear.

Yesterday, the Oklahoman reported that March 2012 was the hottest month on record at 60.7 degrees (average).

It topped the record of 60.5 degrees set in 1910, over ONE HUNDRED years ago.

What was going on in 1910 that made March so hot?

Good grief, these globull warming people are just stupid.
