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.

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.
