A radio personality distorted and verbally attacked the work of Associate Professor Kari Norgaard, a world-acclaimed expert on global warming denial, then kept a transcript of this falsehood-filled show on his website for the past three years, where it still lingers to this day.
His show called Kari a “Wacko.� Rather than dwell on his incivility, here’s something fun, free, and positive we did and you can do, too!
By coincidence, I introduced Kari on the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The father of the ADA, my friend the late Justin Dart, Jr., called for what he described as “a revolution of empowerment,� see my brief video here.

Three years ago, a famous extremist mistook a news report about this author and devoted part of his radio show to insulting and misinterpreting the research of Dr. Norgaard. Her book, Living in Denial: Climate Change, Emotions and Everyday Life, looks at why the whole society, using Norway as an example, is not doing enough about the climate crisis.
Because I organized this off-campus speaking gig for Kari (thankfully delegating 99% of the actual work to Sue Craig and others at our church), Kari gave me the honor of introducing her. Because I organized this off-campus speaking gig for Kari (thankfully delegating 99% of the actual work to Sue Craig and others at our church), Kari gave me the honor of introducing her.
That is how I first found out about Kari, read her book, met with her, and spoke out about this radio show distortion.
Note that this radio show refers to Dr. Norgaard with these exact words: “Wacko� (twice), “nuts� (five times!), and “lunacy.� Perhaps on the day of the show, several years ago, we might find an excuse for his factual errors because the show relied on an unprofessional newspaper article that was published in England on March 31, 2012 (UK Daily Mail).
Quite the opposite, Kari examines why the general public and its institutions seem to be “paralyzed� about this enormous challenge.
You may listen to a recent Canadian broadcast radio show about climate crisis and anxiety, with one of the guests being Kari, here:
You may watch a short, three-minute video excerpting my intro for Kari, placed on Facebook by my good friend David Zupan, even though my disabled voice is a bit weak:
Here are my written notes for my intro of Kari. I added some improvisation such as comparing Kari to Hypatia.
Kari Marie Norgaard is Associate Professor of Sociology and Environmental Studies at University of Oregon where she has been on the faculty since 2011. She holds a PhD in Sociology from the U of O. For 15 years Dr. Norgaard has published and taught in environmental sociology, gender, race, and emotions. She researches climate change denial. She also researches the Karuk Tribe on the Klamath River in California. High profile media outlets have covered her work: Washington Post, National Geographic, National Public Radio and more. Her 2011 book Living in Denial: Climate Change, Emotions and Everyday Life has received international acclaim. She has over a dozen peer reviewed research articles. In the past 18 months she has spoken across the US plus in Iceland, Norway, Sweden.
In 2012 I first heard about Kari, because our local newspaper ran a headline that the radio host Rush Limbaugh verbally attacked her work. He encouraged listeners to complain. I immediately obtained her book and found out that Rush Limbaugh was totally wrong. I checked his web site today, and lies about Kari are still being put out.

Northwest News: UO sociologist Kari Norgaard at center of climate change tsunami; shifting positions on Alaska's 'Stand Your Ground' legislation
A University of Oregon sociologist Kari Norgaard took part in a panel discussion with scientists from around the globe last week in London to talk about climate change. What she said, and what was said about what she said, have drawn ire from climate change skeptics, including radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, according to a story in the morning's Eugene Register Guard:
But upon her return, she found her name on Rush Limbaugh's lips, her university e-mail stuffed with hundreds of hateful messages and the UO itself under attack in the blogosphere for "Stalinesque" changes to its website.
Kari Norgaard may not have mentioned it, but climate cranks do have psychological problems:

Washington, D.C.- Today, the Washington Post reported on a study by University of California sociologist Dr. Kari Norgaard documenting how the denied access to traditional food sources has affected the physical health of members of the Karuk Tribe. The Karuk live along the Klamath River in Northern California. Tribes and conservationists point to this report as the first clear link between the decline of Klamath River salmon due to dams and water mismanagement, and human health.
"As salmon in the Klamath River have dwindled, the Karuks have been forced to adopt a Western-style high starch diet," said Dr. Norgaard. "As the Tribe has been denied access to salmon, the incidence of diabetes and heart disease among tribal members has skyrocketed. For the Karuk, salmon once represented a staple of their diet. Salmon is high in protein and Omega-3 fatty acids which have recently received much positive acclaim by the medical community. According to Dr. Norgaard's study, as the fishery has declined, rates of heart disease and diabetes for Karuk tribal members have reached levels two to three times higher than the national average.
According to Dr. Norgaard, "early anthropologists studying the Klamath Basin Tribes, identified the Karuk, Hupa and Yurok tribes as the wealthiest people in what is now known as California prior to contact with Europeans.
"It is ironic that today doctors around the nation are urging their patients to eat more salmon and adopt the kind of diet that the Karuk enjoyed for thousands of years," concluded Dr. Norgaard.
