Climate-change scepticism must be 'treated', says enviro-sociologist
The Register Guard ^ | March 30, 2012 | Lewis Page

Posted on 03/31/2012 7:19:13 AM PDT by Twotone

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.

Biology and sociology? My polysci BA and graduate work in law and theology is worth as much in determining the validity of global warmists’ claims.

Dupe threads need to be treated. Though I admit sometimes a dupe is the first time I’ve seen some threads. But not this one. There otta be a search function. Then people could just “bump” existing threads, and they stay cohesive (or less incohesive).

Parents and students are taking out loans with horrid interest rates, just so their kids can be indoctrinated by this dangerous clown.

Totalitarian regimes routinely declare their political opponents insane and have them committed to institutions... it’s a time-honored strategy for those who can brook no debate.

Which one looks like the one who needs treatment? Which one looks like she doesn't need treatment and has no problems with people of other races? (Second image is Jennifer Marohasy, an AGW (anthropogenic Global Warming) Skeptic from Austria.

Indoctrinating children. They got these kids wearing green shirts as a "pack" and teaching the GOREY details about our universe.

But they need a ride to school, the "Y", a baseball game, a neighbors house a mile away....Bless their souls....they will save the world if they vote DEMOCRAT.

I dunno if I would have owned slaves, but if it were in my power, I would definitely stop all tax dollars going for education with the exception of the service academies. That includes grades k-12. Look what you get.

Pardon me, “paliate” not palitate, although palitate has a nice sound to it, I’m not sure it is a word.

There is. But the title of this article (which is correct) doesn't turn up any others. When posters make up their own headlines or type them in with a cutesie tag, the search function won't find them.

I pronounce this poster innocent!

Oh, I'd have to say, yes. That's the only place you can get them. They used to come in Cracker Jack boxes but as sales fell, they changed to cereal. I have three.

Sounds like Professor Norgaard has been on drugs for many years.

I wonder if he still beats his wife.

Why that is none other than Professor Kari Norgaard, the sociologist who suggests that people who don't agree with her og AGW ought to be submitted to treatment so that they can think like her.

It reminds me of the old David Bowie song:

Day after day
They take some brain away
They turn my face around
To the far side of town
And tell me that it's real
And ask me how I feel

Prof. Norgaard is a she. I don’t know if she beats her wife.
