That's the message to this week's Planet Under Pressure Conference by a group of speakers led by Kari Marie Norgaard, professor of sociology and environmental studies at the University of Oregon. . . .
"We find a profound misfit between dire scientific predictions of ongoing and future climate changes and scientific assessments of needed emissions reductions on the one hand, and weak political, social or policy response on the other," Norgaard said. Serious discussions about solutions, she added, are mired in cultural inertia "that exists across spheres of the individual, social interaction, culture and institutions."
"Climate change poses a massive threat to our present social, economic and political order. From a sociological perspective, resistance to change is to be expected," she said. "People are individually and collectively habituated to the ways we act and think. This habituation must be recognized and simultaneously addressed at the individual, cultural and societal level - how we think the world works and how we think it should work."
In their paper, Norgaard and co-authors Robert Brulle of Drexel University in Philadelphia and Randolph Haluza-DeLay of The King's University College in Canada draw from the work of French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu (1930-2002) to describe social mechanisms that maintain social stability or cultural inertia in the face of climate change at the three levels. . . .

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:

"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.
" t 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.
