Global Warming Hoax – Federal Jack [cached]

Following University of Oregon Professor Kari Norgaard's presentation of a discussion document at the recent Planet Under Pressure conference, in which she called for global warming skeptics to be viewed as racists who need to be "treated" for mental disorders, every academic establishment associated with her has attempted to memory hole information concerning Norgaard's biography and her previous work.

As the Watts Up With That blog documents, the University of Oregon has attempted to re-write history Soviet-style by amending the controversial terms used in Norgaard's paper without so much as an editor's note.
However, a damning letter written by Norgaard which appears on the Whitman College Magazine website has not yet been erased.
"Please listen to Holdren and Hansen," writes Norgaard, referring to prominent NASA global warming alarmist and Al Gore ally Dr. James Hansen, the man who endorsed a book by fellow alarmist Keith Farnish which advocated acts of sabotage and environmental terrorism in blowing up dams and demolishing cities in order to return the planet to the agrarian age.
Norgaard then openly urges Obama to virtually suspend democracy, ignore public sentiment, and enforce climate change mandates by executive fiat.

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.

Mad In America [cached]

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.
I introduced Kari Norgaard, an Associate Professor of Sociology and Environmental Studies from University of Oregon.
Professor Kari Norgaard, professor at University of Oregon.
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.
