Professor Says Climate Change Skepticism is a Sickness That Must be 'Treated'

Professor Kari Norgaard has written a paper in which she argues that “cultural resistance” to the hypothesis that humans are responsible for climate-change “must be recognized and treated” as an aberrant sociological behavior. Yikes!

Should we expect to see re-education camps being set up, similar those in the Gulag camps in the former Soviet Union, so we can get our minds right if we question the climate change theorists? We already have them. They’re our nation’s schools and universities. Professor Norgaard teaches at the University of Oregon. This means she’s an agent of the State teaching a new religion:

Warmism has become a religion, and Oregon is its spiritual capital, so this would-be priestess of the cult calling for unbelievers to be brainwashed fits a pattern seen before in history. (Source)

The Australian columnist Andrew Bolt puts all of this in some historical perspective for us:

[T]he global warming faith licences the closet totalitarian. Imagine what such people as this sociologist feel licenced to do to us — for our own good, of course, as the Inquisition, Nazis and Bolsheviks insisted, too. Already some, like Professor Clive Hamilton, ponder the need for a “suspension of the democratic processes.”

Climate Change is the new moniker for what was once called Global Warming. It’s easier to prove that the climate changes than it is to prove a steady increase in the warming of the planet. Any variation in temperature can be attributed to man-made temperature variations.

Many of you may be aware of the June 24, 1974 TIME magazine that included the article “Science, Another Ice Age?” Ice-Age science was confirmed in 1977 when TIME carried the story “How to Survive the Coming Ice Age” that included “51 Things You Can Do to Make a Difference.” Consider the following from the 1974 article:

As they review the bizarre and unpredictable weather pattern of the past several years, a growing number of scientists are beginning to suspect that many seemingly contradictory meteorological fluctuations are actually part of a global climatic upheaval. However widely the weather varies from place to place and time to time, when meteorologists take an average of temperatures around the globe they find that the atmosphere has been growing gradually cooler for the past three decades. The trend shows no indication of reversing. Climatological Cassandras are becoming increasingly apprehensive, for the weather aberrations they are studying may be the harbinger of another ice age.

Did you notice that the article concluded that “the trend shows no indication of reversing”? If Professor Kari Norgaard had been teaching in the 1970s, would she have called for similar re-education requirements for anyone who resisted the Global Cooling science of the day?

    Global Warming or Climate Change IS a result of man, but we DO NOT need to be re-educated...thats what Hitler did in the 1940's.  We, mankind have to change our ways and not be depemdant on fossil fuels.  Our Universities MUST find a cost effecient way to convert (seperate) water (H2O)  into Hydrogen and oxygen.

    It can be done today, but at what expense.  We also must find a way to use solor energy in our homes (without spending an arm and a leg).  I'm sure within the next generation, oue students WILL fine that way that will be inexpensive...if only government would keep their dirty little hands out of the problem and or solution.  Just look at what the Army Corps of Engineers did in the Everglades 30 years ago.  They ruined the eco system (at a cost of millions of $$$); now thay have spend three times that much to restore the Everglades...at taxpayers expense.

    Government should stick to what they do best, which is nothing.  The most scariest words spoken "I'm from the government and I'm here to help".

    • Benji

      "Climate change" is an invented condition by the libs to get more $$$ from the government to "study the problem."   The libs thought finding "global warming" would not be a problem. Simply take the recorded average tempertures of the earth for all the years that records have been kept and compare it to the last several years' average tempertures. So they did.  But then they discovered a problem. Ten straight years of consistant cool tempertures back in the 1940s and 1950s were really screwing up their results, so what did they do?  Ignore those ten years and voila!  what did they have?  Global warming!

    • http://www.facebook.com/mjeiden Michael Eiden

      I would still like to know where all this carbon dioxide is in the atmosphere that is supposed to be causing the so called global warming,  considering the atmosphere is 21 percent Oxygen and 77 percent Nitrogen which totals  98 percent leaving 2 percent for all the other gases, so where is the  carbon dioxide? who I know the plants, trees and such use co2 and give off oxygen, and algae which there is a 250 mile by 150 mile plume down by Antarctica and guess what algae consumes co2 turning it into other substances and is the biggest contributor to replenishing the oxygen in the atmosphere.  Besides the volcano erupting over by Italy in the last few years has put more material into atmosphere than man ever dreamed of doing. I am old enough to remember that back in the 70's the climate change wackos said we were heading into another ice age.  The water vapor in the air and the pulsing of the sun have more to do with weather than anything else. Sun does not shine at a steady rate it pulses just like any other star causing temp and weather  changes. 

      • http://intensedebate.com/people/The_John_Galt John Galt

        CO2 is an effect, NOT a cause!  Most people do not fully realize this.  When water is heated it will off gas consistent with local conditions, not the other way around.  What this means is that the CO2 level in the atmosphere may rise when the ocean is heated by the sun, and adsorb the gas during the winter when it cools down.  This is a natural condition, not a political ploy to be used by socialists!

    • margaretpaddock

      No regardless of what you saw you have been taught to think it was man that caused it.

      Their entire plan on how to do this through the schools and public forums is exposed.

    • JoshuaoftheBible#1

      There is NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF, that global warming or cooling is man made. There are more variables than CO2 and Man which contribute to the climate. The SUN, is the biggest factor and it has storms and quiet periods. I guess man is responsible for that also?

    If there is any group of people who need to be re-educated, it is the entire Executive, Legislative, and Judical branchs of government.  All three have either forgotten or compleatly disregarded the Declaration of Independance, the Constitution for the United States, and the Bill of Rights.

  • Bobseeks

    If the dictator wannabe maobama is relected and the fascists of the democrat party get complete control, it won't be too long before the USA is dotted withn gulags, labor-camps, and re-education camps for conservatives and Christians. Some may say "it can't happen here", but that same kind of statement was made in pre-nazi Germany and probably in Russia, China, and Cambodia before the lieberal monsters took control in those countries. The fact is, lieberalism is all about control and those who are lieberals are completely lacking in humanity as can be seen by their creating a permanent underclass of impoverished people off of which they feed and, of course, for their practice run for genocide called abortion. Finally, we already have a type of gulag and re-education camp - we call them public schools.

  • acronymous

    For my own part, I hold that cultural resistance to the hypothesis that the earth is round is not aberrant sociological behavior. But a fair reading of account of Norgaard's position in the linked text shows that there is no thought of "treating" people. There is no hint of clinics, reeducation camps, or the like.

    What they're saying is that the wrongheaded position of those who say the earth is flat should be considered as not merely an individual error of scientific understanding, but as part of a culture of flat-earth-belief, with embedded religious undertones etc.

  • margaretpaddock

    Cultural resistance, sustainable - keywords of the reformers.

    Everyone you need to go to americandeception.com to learn of the plan to take over America from the time that Eisenhower signed the pact with Russia.  This is proven fact and every president since has been on board with it - even Regan.  That is the reason the government took over the school system.

    This Kari Norgaard is what they call a Reformer.  Her mission is to change the thinking of Americans.

    For your sake and that of you friends and loved ones you must learn of this.

    The clear problem is that these people refuse to take a look at any other data that would disprove their theories and the theories are not for scientific purposes but those of politics and the two do not mix real well.    So all you "warmists" out there can you explain the global cooling for a period in both the middle ages and also more recently ending in about 1815????   of course not.   God created the planet and it goes about its own business as he has ordained.   Ups and downs are normal but then again most "warmists" dont believe in God either.

      If the polar bears require ice to feed, would they not be moving NORTH to find more ice?

    The global warming conspiracy needs to be put in perspective to be properly understood. This far-left attack by government-paid drones started in the 1970′s with the global cooling scam: we should disarm our nuclear bombers and fill them with soot to be spread over the poles and so prevent those new glaciers from descending south and crushing the New York skyscrapers to dust. When that did not work the same fakers invented the global warming hoax in the 1990′s; we should nationalize all industries and organize a UN-sponsored world socialist government based on "social justice" with the fakers in charge. What with 12 years of substantial cooling the fakers switched to the climate change flimflam in the 2000′s; so whatever happens we should…see above under the global warming hoax. And now we are faced with the cap & trade power grab – but the aim is the same as above. Our socialists, Marxists, communists, Hollywood stars, university professors in social and political "sciences", and environmentalists are all clamoring for action while spurring President Obama ("Tomorrow the oceans will stop rising and the planet will start healing") and his 35 czars/commissars to undertake immediate measures to save the planet – with the same aims as described above.
    It is evident from the above quote that our President believes himself to be either Jesus come back to Earth, or at least the 12th Imam so ardently desired by that jihadist terrorist and Obama’s friend Ahmadinejad. Like to the Pinocchio in the fable, Obama’s nose grows longer with every lie he pronounces, while jumping up the steps to his teleprompter like a marionette.In the meantime our Main Stream Media are unanimous in spreading this criminal propaganda daily; the ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NPR, NY Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, LA Times, Associated Press, Reuters, Time, Newsweek, drive this drivel constantly. What is totally ignored are the detailed descriptions of faked data, skewed computer programs, politically revised conclusions by the UN-sponsored far-left clique of biased non-scientists – all government-paid drones that no private enterprise would hire. Another thing ignored is the "Global Warming Petition" (see Internet) where 31,487 independent US scientists (including 9,029 of them with PhD degrees) dispute decisively the findings of the UN-sponsored panel; also ignored is the "Manhattan Declaration on Climate Change" (see also Internet) where a smaller number of competent world scientists, about 712, including 142 pure climatologists, state the same – i.e., that the man-caused catastrophic global warming is a farce. The books by Christopher Horner, Robert Carter, Patrick Michaels, Lawrence Solomon, John Berlau, Steven Milloy, Ian Murray, Christopher Booker, R. C. Balling, D. Avery, S. F. Singer, Brian Sussman, and AW Montford describing the lies, fakes, phony data, opposite conclusions, redacting by UN political hacks, reverse graphs, etc., have exposed this far-left propaganda in painful detail. In the case of the above mentioned Petition, several "environmentalists" had submitted phony names with phony credentials in order to sabotage that effort. It took several years of painstaking and expensive effort (that effort cost us more private money, no oil money there) to clean up the list from those saboteurs and verify all academic and professional data of the signatories. To put this whole conspiracy in terms of numbers, let me say that the projected world-threatening increase of carbon dioxide of 100 ppm (parts per million) by the end of this century would increase thermal absorptivity of the atmosphere by one-eighth of one percent; that is the definition of something totally negligible. On the other hand the sun cycles of cooling and heating are many thousands of times more powerful with regard to the carbon dioxide in the air; when the sun is in its cold cycle the oceans absorb billions of tons of it; and when the sun heats up the oceans release the carbon dioxide in quantities many thousands of times bigger than anything the mankind could produce. To illustrate this point in more accessible terms to somebody who is not a climatologist or a scientist or an engineer; the argument of catastrophic anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming issued by our panic driven socialist/marxist government-paid hacks is like saying that a burp of a lonely wolf in Alaska will transform Florida into a Sahara-like desert - tomorrow! Perhaps an even better example would be to argue that the Pissing Boy in Bruxelles will inundate the continents by the end of the week. As for that bloviating gasbag and "climatologist" Al Gore, Dr. James Hansen with his tirades designed to get him more taxpayers’ money and who started his career by the global cooling scam in the 1970’s, as well as for Dr. Mann who inverted cause and effect in his "studies", for Phil Jones who destroyed faked data, and for the corrupt Maurice Strong who started the whole affair - they should be brought to the International Court in The Hague on charges of crimes against humanity, and then promptly shot by a firing squad.Marc Jeric (MS, PhD, Engineering, UCLA)"

    This is not the complete list; it was taken from the 45 Communist goals that found their way down the halls of our great Capitol back in 1963.

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” 

    (Leviticus 20:13If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.)

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    Luke 10:18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

    In ancient Babylon their economy was based on usury.
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that only the Congress can print and coin money! 

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was slipped thru congress during the Christmas break with the majority of it’s members absent. 

    The Federal Reserve is self serving and privately owned in violation to the Constitution, charging interest on illegally printed money. Money printed from nothing!
    In America On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. Five months later A UNITED STATES PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY was MURDERED BY COMMUNIST! 

    Our own US Congress voted themselves a raise. (But vetoed a raise for those on Social Security) A member of Congress only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to being millionaires plus.  If some one in the military stays  in for 20 years (providing that they are not killed in combat before that) and gets out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $2,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm's way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.

    3And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
    4And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:
    5Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
     
    Luke 22:35-36 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
     
     
    Jeremiah 50:16Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the SICKLE in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.

    Wow. I've been waiting for this one. I actually had this discussion with my Christian doctor. Over lunch. He assured me I wasn't naive, uninformed, or, well, the subject of illness never came up. Just listen to the eloquently described details this doctor offered. (You can judge for yourself if there is any worthwhile information here). He first pleigureized a statement from Dr. Grant Jeffrey from 2010 that gave a scientific study report that since 1991 the atmosphere of earth has actually cooled a degree. He went on to say the oceans are a bit warmer mostly due to an increase in seismic activity. (More earthquakes are coming). Just this morning the noises Wisconsin residents have been hearing of late were said to be seismic activity.
    Real science knows that cyclical weather patterns seem to be right on normal schedule and that milder winters almost always follow more severely cold winters such as was the case in 2010-11. The ice pack in the Antarctic actually has thickened, no doubt due to the degree of atmospheric cooling for 21 years. So the real problem is as it has been, said my doctor. "The socialists picked climate change as their banner to divide the masses." don't worry son, he said. The earth will warm, then it will cool again. "They will get their wish, however. In the last 3 1/2 years of human rule, whenever that time comes, the sun will burn them. You can find that in the Revelation of Jesus Christ."

    As I geologist, I can tell you that the only consistent thing about the earth's climate is that it is always changing.  A little research shows the following climate scares:

    1920's - global cooling - the impending ice age
    1930's - global warming - the impending big bake
    1970' - global cooling - another impending ice age
    currently - global warming - another impending big bake
    stay tuned for the next impending ice age once the current global warming scare "cools off" a bit.

    Norgaard is the exception to my rule that euthanasia should be avoided. People like her should be removed from the gene pool so that they are unable to reproduce and cause further damage to society. What a half-wit.

    • Jpclarksville

      LOL let's just hope she's getting her free Obama birth control. Problem is, these half wits have managed over the past 60 years to increase their presence in our schools and smaller local governments to push their agenda, and there's no chance she could ever get fired...after all, she's probably the "smartest" one amongst them.

        Who's Vetting Muslim Chaplains On College Campuses?
        http://news.investors.com/Article/598759/201201241804/college-muslim-chaplains-al-qaida-hamas-background-checks.htm
        Homeland Security: To please Muslim-rights groups, more and more colleges are hiring Muslim chaplains, only to watch them radicalize students. Campuses need tougher background checks.
        Alarmingly, some chaplains have actively supported al-Qaida and called for violent jihad against "kaffirs," or infidels. And yet they still have access to students, and remain on the university payroll.
        Take Imam Abdullah Faaruuq, Muslim chaplain at Northeastern University in Boston. He has urged Muslims to pick up the "gun and sword" on behalf of recently imprisoned al-Qaida terrorists.
        Last month, Faaruuq held a fundraiser for Aafia Siddiqui, a one-time MIT student also known as "Lady al-Qaida," who's serving an 86-year prison sentence for opening fire on U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.
        Siddiqui, a senior al-Qaida operative based in Pakistan, was captured with notes about a "mass casualty attack" in the U.S., along with a list of New York landmarks.
        "What a brave woman she continues to be, and how much her bravery and her faith and her belief warrants our support at this time," said Faaruuq, as he encouraged Massachusetts Muslims to help raise $30,000 for her appeal.
        "She's only guilty of defending herself," he said. In fact, Siddiqui yelled "Death to America" as she fired on soldiers. A federal judge called her actions premeditated.
        While ignoring such evidence, the Northeastern chaplain condemned American soldiers as "kaffirs" and exhorted Muslims to "cut through" them with machetes.
        "Go out and do your job," he said, referring to jihad.
        No wonder Islamic extremism has spread at Northeastern.
        Then there's Khalid Griggs, assistant chaplain at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. Upon his hiring, Wake Forest's president praised him as a "well-respected individual."
        Yes, well-respected among the radical Muslim Brotherhood.
        Griggs has served as a leader of the Islamic Circle of North America, or ICNA, cited in the Muslim Brotherhood's recently declassified founding archives as one of its front groups. He is also a senior official in the Muslim Alliance of North America. MANA was co-founded by radical Muslim cleric Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
        "It is difficult to understand how the president of such a respected American university could have remained so oblivious to the serious implications of allowing an individual like Griggs with openly publicized links to the Muslim Brotherhood access to Wake Forest students," said terror expert Clare Lopez.
        ICNA is an offshoot of the Muslim Students Association, another Brotherhood front. MSA has grown to one of the nation's largest college groups with more than 150 campus chapters.
        MSA chapters from New York to California have extolled suicide bombers and other terrorists as "martyrs" and the "only people who truly fear Allah."
        And they are a big reason why, according to a recent Pew Research poll, one in four college-age Muslims in America support suicide bombings.
        MSA also organizes anti-Israel student rallies, and hectors college administrators into Islamizing campus facilities. MSA and Muslim chaplains work in lockstep. To please Muslim-rights groups, more and more colleges are hiring Muslim chaplains, only to watch them radicalize students. Campuses need tougher background checks.

        Clearly, regents and administrators are clueless about this dangerous threat. Unless they put in place better vetting systems, radical Islamists will be able to infiltrate college campuses and indoctrinate impressionable students who graduate to become jihadists instead of productive members of society.

    This is hilarious! So some bonehead sociologist says its a disease to believe global warming theories that are dismissed by most reaonable laymen and most of the scuentific comunity need their colective heads examined. This is exactly why not only is this year's election the most important in our history but we must also combat the far left nutbags and their elitist socialistic theories and efforts to change America and the world.

  • Samtman

    The facts are, that 99% of scientist who deal with weather patterns, oceanagraphy, global warming are saying that global warming is real and is proven. So what this posting is saying, if you believe in scientivic facts that inlude elelctricity, the gasoline engine,gravity your a nut case, That makes most of the worlds population nut cases including the Roman Cahtolic Pope.  Only born again evangelist who still believe in devils and witches and the end of the world  soon and that 144,000 will be saved and the rest of us will die, die and die.  I have a nice bridege for you.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/The_John_Galt John Galt

      I was at Princeton, and 99% of scientists do not subscribe to man made "global warming".  We need to separate political agendas from true science.

  • Robert H. Woodman

    A quibble with the article.  I read the paper, and nowhere does Dr. Norgaard call for "treatment" of people who are skeptical of climate change.  Instead, she points out (quite correctly) that people think in ways they are habituated to think.  She then states, "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."  That is a somewhat different point to make than to say that individuals who disagree with climate change should be "treated."

    • mediafire

      What do you think this quote means? "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." What exactly does "addressed" mean??? Liberals never talk straight!

      • Robert H. Woodman

        There are numerous ways to "address" a problem.  Preachers "address" problems all the time through sermons, for example.  Teachers "address" problems in various ways, including teaching, homework assignments, disciplinary actions, and so forth.  Politicians generally "address" problems by passing laws.

        The point is this, mediafire: "addressed" could mean something benign, or it could mean something nefarious.  We don't know.  You assumed, because of your intrinsic dislike of liberals, that "addressed" means gulags and re-education camps.  It MIGHT mean that, but it could also mean any number of benign actions.  In the context of the discussion from which that quote was taken, you simply have no idea what she means, and it does a disservice to everyone to assume that she means the worst.

        • mediafire

           I have read many liberal commentaries. Many times it is necessary to read between the lines. You are correct "addressed" is the key word in that statement. Your also correct I am not in tune with liberalism based on facts of there desire to destroy the country. I am not speaking of every day citizens. I am speaking of leadership, media, Hollywood, education system, etc. As an example; NBC News Doctors Audio Of Trayvon Martin 911 Call?

          Liberals have and are doing a continual "disservice to everyone" in this country.

        • Robert H. Woodman

          I agree with you that liberals generally and continually do not serve this country well.  In the case of this article that we are discussing, I don't want to put words into the professor's mouth.

        • mediafire

          I understand that, and I felt that way eight years ago. But now, I have evolved to the point when a liberal professor says something, it cannot be good for the students he/she teaches or the future of our country!

          May I suggest a review of (if you have not already) a DVD: Agenda; Grinding America Down .... Another DVD "American History in Black and White" 2006 edition. The former connected the dots for me because I was already aware of much but it would have been years before I connected the dots. The latter *may* can help open the eyes of a liberal Christian or patriot Democrat.

        • Robert H. Woodman

          Thanks for that suggestion.  I'll get them as soon as possible.  Do you have a recommended ministry that sells them?  Otherwise, I'll just pick them up via Amazon.

    • mediafire

       There is a book "The Liberal Mind" "The Psychological Causes of Political Madness" which is a great but deep read written by a shrink who practiced in Chicago for over thirty years. He makes a 406 page case that liberalism may well need treatment.

  • Samtman

    After a couple more hot winters like we have had this and last year, I think that Global Warm deniers will see the light and start to help to do somethink to reduce carbon emissions. You can try, but I don't think praying will help.

    • mediafire

       Part of the reason that records could/may indicate (in some folks mind) that there is a warming trend that liberals want to blame on humans is because the previous couple centuries before 1850 is labeled a Little Ice Age. And it has warmed up since then. But before the *Little Ice Age* it was warmer also. Was the warm period before 1550 or 1650 humans fault? Please feel free to Google "Little Ice Age"

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/The_John_Galt John Galt

      Man made "global warming" is non existent,  over the course of years (eons) the planet has continuity warmed and cooled, as someone once said "there is nothing new under the sun".  Conservation of natural resources is ..... well ..... Conservative!  If the socialist called for good old fashion conservation it would put a positive light on conservative philosophies!  And that they will never do!
