This is a fantastic way to get people to come over to the Warmist side
Climate-change scepticism must be ‘treated’, says enviro-sociologist
Dubious on warmo peril? You’re the kind who’d own slaves
Scepticism regarding the need for immediate and massive action against carbon emissions is a sickness of societies and individuals which needs to be “treated”, according to an Oregon-based professor of “sociology and environmental studies”. Professor Kari Norgaard compares the struggle against climate scepticism to that against racism and slavery in the US South.
To call this a silly comparison would be to reduce the silliness. Those who fought, and died, to stop slavery, and to pass the civil rights laws would and should be appalled by this idiotic, irresponsible comparison, but, we all know that the Warmists are desperate as their cult dies a slow, painful death, which is why we are seeing more and more unhinged, apoplectic, apocalyptic, and deranged garbage coming out daily.
The good prof is in London at the moment for the “Planet Under Pressure” conference, where she presented a paper on Wednesday dealing with how best to do away with the evil of scepticism and get the human race to focus all its efforts on saving the planet.
Hmm, looks like she isn’t too worried about the greenhouse gases she puts out herself. Hypocritical much?
According to an Oregon uni statement announcing the paper:
Resistance at individual and societal levels must be recognized and treated …
“This kind of cultural resistance to very significant social threat is something that we would expect in any society facing a massive threat,” [Norgaard] said.
The discussion, she said, is comparable to what happened with challenges to racism or slavery in the U.S. South.
If memory serves, racism is and slavery was a real issue. Globull warming is not. Rather despicable to even make the comparison, but, like I wrote, Warmists are desperate. But, they love traveling the world while telling others to stay at home.
“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.
Do as I say, not as I do.
