As long ago as 2009 a conference of "eco-psychologists" at the University of the West of England in Bristol, led by University of Oregon professor Kari Norgaard, discussed whether "climate change denial" should be deemed a "mental disorder. There Norgaard, a professor of sociology and environmental studies, as reported in The Register, told participants that "Skepticism regarding the need for immediate and massive action against carbon emissions is a sickness of societies and individuals which needs to be 'treated.' ..."
In 2012 Norgaard and other academics gathered again in London, where she discussed her book "Living in Denial: Climate Change, Emotions and Everyday Life" (2011, MIT Press). "This kind of cultural resistance to very significant social threat is something that we would expect in any society facing a massive threat," she said.

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.
