Portraits in Moonbattery: Kari Norgaard

What to do about those irritating doubters who are causing the global warming hoax to come unraveled? Kari Norgaard has the answer:

Comparing skepticism of man-made global warming to racist beliefs, an Oregon-based professor of sociology and environmental studies has labeled doubts about anthropogenic climate change a “sickness” for which individuals need to be “treated”.

Professor Kari Norgaard, who is currently appearing at the ‘Planet Under Pressure’ conference in London, has presented a paper in which she argues that “cultural resistance” to accepting the premise that humans are responsible for climate change “must be recognized and treated” as an aberrant sociological behavior.

Norgaard equates skepticism of climate change alarmists — whose data is continually proven to be politicized, agenda driven and downright inaccurate — with racism, noting that overcoming such viewpoints poses a similar challenge “to racism or slavery in the U.S. South.”

If insufficient reverence for politically favored racial groups can be treated pharmacologically, why not climate change denial?

The liberals currently dismantling our country can’t take credit for the concept of characterizing the ideologically disobedient as sick people in need of treatment. The Soviet Union infamously locked people in mental asylums for believing in economic freedom — or as Obamunists would call it, capitalist exploitation.

Like the Manchurian Moonbat, Prof. Norgaard wants to eliminate coal, America’s most bountiful energy resource. Fortunately we won’t need as much energy when we live stacked on top of each other like rats at a pet store in the eco-gulags our moonbat ruling class has been planning at conferences like Planet Under Pressure.

Scary Kari bares her fangs.

On tips from Shawn, Sam, Dave H, and AC.

    I am suffering from anthropogenic climate denial (ACD) which can only be treated with excessive doses of Tuaca, Pork Chile Verde burritos from Carlos O’Kelly’s and the items must be served by Jessica Biel and Alba wearing matching thongs.
    A suitable placebo effect can be obtained by watching the USC womens volleyball team work out topless.

  2. StanInTexas says:

    So Norgaard is “an Oregon-based professor of sociology and environmental studies”????

    I thought unless you were a climatologoist with 200+ years of continual study, then your opinion did not count on the “SETTLED” science of Global Cooling/Global Warming/CLIMATE CHANGE?????

    So what’s the deal here Liberals? Is this your prefered method to get Conservatives into re-education camps???

  3. StanInTexas says:

    On a side note…

    I’ll have what FRANK is having!!!!

  4. SpringTexas says:

    Funny how much confidence one can get when she has a PhD in some made up pseudo-science. I’d like to see her survive some Teddy Roosevelt-style conservatism/environmentalism out in the bush for a few weeks.

  5. Jeff says:

    That is one Fugly female. Talk about inducing projectile vomiting. She is another one those moonbats who will not let reality get in the way of a “good” theory, especially if it means more power and money for you. Follow the money.

  6. Read Only says:

    DO NOT LOOK – What has been seen cannot be unseen.

  7. Kevin says:

    Kids, this is what happens when first cousins throw caution to the wind…

  8. Jester says:

    “BANG BANG BANG” goes the anthropogenic climate change gong as the moonbats keep pounding away at it. Meanwhile, Al Gore is sitting back in his $1.5 mil home, smoking a cigar in his easy chair with his feet up, chuckling.

  9. Sam Adams says:

    sociology and environmental studies,” eh?

    Two pseudosciences where opinion is a substitute for actual use of the “scientific method.”

    I commend Dave for using this rather flattering photo of the Dear Professor rather than this one: which accompanied her letter to the President.

    In her latter she states: “At this juncture we need science more than ever. Fortunately you have made an excellent choice in commissioning Harvard physicist and Nobel Peace Prize recipient John Holdren as your science adviser.”

    Funny; I don’t recall Holdren receiving a Nobel Peace Prize, but then again, apparently standards for receiving such a prize appear to be minimal.

    Further, she states:
    “My own research describes how hearing about climate change raises fears about the future, guilt about our own involvement, feelings of helplessness and concern that our government may not be doing enough. At the deepest level, large-scale environmental problems such as global warming threaten people’s sense of the continuity of life.

    My research further indicates that climate change is so disturbing that many of us simply choose not to think about it! Naturally, the fact that we have been all too willing to avoid thinking about climate change fits perfectly into the agenda of any campaign to create a sense of doubt. It is for these reasons that a primary recommendation of my report commissioned by the World Bank on climate denial is that policymakers should not wait for public opinion to take necessary action.”

    What will this poor woman do when she is made aware of the fact that global temperatures having been rising for the last 15 years, and climate change is mostly related to that big shiny object in the daytime sky?

  10. Bloodless Coup says:

    I looked up the word dork in the dictionary and Scai Kari’s picture was right next to it.

  11. Zilla says:

    Further proof that the hideousness in one’s blighted soul bleeds through to one’s outside appearance. Shorter: leftist are not attractive people. Probably why they are so angry all the time.

  12. Agnostic Conservative says:

    Sociology. I stopped reading there.

  13. Beef says:

    Liberalism: Normalizing homosexuality, pedophilia, and Gaia worship; pathologizing the family, religion, and scientific skepticism.

    Liberalism is a cultural disease.

  14. Dan nh says:

    Good thing she is an expert in sociology.

    Looks like she should be more concerned with preventing incest.

  15. Jim22 says:

    RD Walker, over at, has awarded Ms. Norgaard his prestigious ‘Trofim Lysenko Award’. “Professor Norgaard has beautifully captured the essence of the December 1929 speech of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin in which he praised “practice” above “theory” and the service of science to the state.

    In his scientific research in service to the state, Comrade Lysenko caused the expulsion, imprisonment, and death of hundreds of scientists and eliminating all study and research involving any theory in contradiction with those he promoted. Professor Norgaard has taken Comrade Lysenko’s dedication in serving the Party and adapted it to American politics and climate science in a way that reflects glory on science in the service of ideology.”

  16. F.D.R. in Hell says:

    If Eleanor had a daughter…

  17. Austin 'Danger' Powers says:

    It’s a man, baby!

  18. whotothewhat says:

    What I want to know is, that there is a lot of history one can find in libraries and on the internet and of course history channel or even the military channel that tells about the rise of fascism in Germany and the killings of millions of people that was the result of that madness. And with the blessing of 20/20 hindsight many believe that if ever given the chance would they have killed Hitler or a Hitler type to save the world. Why are people like Professor Kari Norgaard allowed to travel freely, teach classes or roam the country side as she sees fit without the threat to her person. Why is Bill Ayers allowed to go about his daily life without a threat upon his person. we may look back in 20 or 30 years and think to ourselves what could we have done to save the planet from these people. Its us freedom loving live me the hell alone types that are face with a serious threat from these sick eco nazis.

  19. TED says:

    OMG! Why is it all these radical leftist nuts could stop a clock by juist looking ay it!? No wonder the lefty’s are so grumpy.

  20. GM Car Of The Future says:

    I hear she’s a tsunami in bed. 🙂

  21. jerrytombs says:

    this women looks crazier that a shit house rat………….

  22. A. Levy says:

    Look at that picture and tell me she’s not on acid.

    But, even though she’s an obvious psycho, she is exposing one of the radical Left’s oldest and most effective tactics, that is, to first demonize something, then regulate/tax it, then try to ban it. It is the same tactic the Left has used against anything (ie. tobacco, etc.) they dislike or disagree with. The only thing that’s needed for it to work is a weak and gullible public. That’s why it almost always works.

  23. Winston Smith says:

    Pass the MIND BLEACH ! Maybe that will help erase her image from my head. Had a similar reaction upon seeing Human Centipede.

  24. TheRonPaulSteve says:

    Liberal women are can be real ugly sometimes.

  25. Cameraman says:

    OMG That face could make a Freight Train take a dirt Road!!

  26. FrankW says:

    Maybe global warming caused the perma-sneer on her face, oh wait that is a reaction to someone not drinking the kool-aid.

  27. Artfldgr says:

    Political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union

    In the Soviet Union, systematic political abuse of psychiatry took place. Soviet psychiatric hospitals were used by the authorities as prisons in order to isolate hundreds or thousands of political prisoners from the rest of society, discredit their ideas, and break them physically and mentally. This method was also employed against religious prisoners and most especially against well-educated former atheists who adopted a religion. In such cases their religious faith was determined to be a form of mental illness that needed to be cured. Formerly highly classified extant documents from “Special file” of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union published after the dissolution of the Soviet Union demonstrate that the authorities of the country quite consciously used psychiatry as a tool to suppress dissent

  28. forest says:

    Whatever you do don’t give her any oats or carrots. She’ll never go away.

    And sometimes she leans into the gate when somebody tries to open it. Keep an eye out for that.

  29. Reagan Conservative says:

    Jeepers creepers, where’d she get those peepers.

    Looks like the offspring of Madeline Albright and Mr. Ed.

  30. Son of Taz says:

    <a href=""Check her online CV and you’ll understand why so many college grads can’t find work. Who the hell thinks there a place for “environmental sociology”? Or “gender and environment”? Mother of gawd, is it any wonder there are so many brain damaged graduates out there?

    Here’s her email address in case anyone wants to send a love letter:

  31. DANEgerus says:

    I have a much better unedited pic of Kari Mari Norgaard

  32. Bob Roberts says:

    Seriously, all that’s missing from that photo are the helmet, knee and elbow pads – lao must have stolen them after he lost his!

  33. Bob Roberts says:

    And the biggest irony about this nonsense is this: There’s no such thing as a “climate change denier”. Nobody denies that climate change occurs. The issue is just what are the primary causes, with only idiots believing humans have usurped natural forces and have now gained significant control over weather, temperature and climate.

  35. Tim says:

    Is that John Elways twin sister?

  36. Bruce Garry says:

    Why do Climate Change believers support Wind and Solar electrical power that has never replaced a coal plant on the grid, anywhere, and attempt to shut down nuclear generation that has replaced coal plants? Their total lack of understanding of the magnitude of difference from global (climate change) and local (radiation) issues speaks volumes about their lack of facts, science and reality.

  37. Judith M. says:

    If Napoleon Dynamite had a sister, she’d look just like Kari.

  38. Andy says:

    After reading the article, I must say she looks exactly like I thought she would.

  39. tony says:

    I too will have some of that Frank -please pass me a jessica please. THIS woman is only an under educated dumb EXPLETIVE BEGINNING W/ “F” .so MORON you gonna visit all the planets and lobotomize their brains -the main thing ALL is overlooking is that now we are responsible for UNIVERSAL GLOBAL WARMING -all nine planets are getting hotter.GO LOBOTOMIZE YOUR FOOLISH MORONIC SELF LADY (using the word lady lightly) oh AND YOUR FAMILY ALSO

  40. jim says:

    How many wanna bet she’s not getting any?

  41. Warlord says:

    You don’t come across teeth like that every day. OMG, I’m
    getting a woody.

  42. We Are Toast says:

    I’d say she is positive proof that mercury should be removed from equine vaccines.

  43. AlphaMail says:

    I don’t usually comment on people’s looks, it seems indignant.

    I think the only time I ever did was when I likened lao’s smile to the lacerated cavity of an infected water buffalo’s anus.

    It’s because I hate to be rude.

    However, I believe this critter’s dad played fiddle on the front porch in Deliverance. Anyone know, did Rosie O’Donnell have a part in that movie?

  44. Sam Adams says:

    “Aberrant sociological behavior,?” Sounds like something a doctor might treat, Apparently Norgaard is qualified to pass judgement on what appears to be a mental illness. Maybe Fraulein Doctor is practicing psychiatry without a license….or maybe she took an on-line course.

    Why doesn’t the good professor put some study into why many people keep trying some government-regulated economy/society, al la Marxism, yet they have never, yet, ever worked. There is where the real mental illness is.

    BTW, what have sociologists done to change those horrible racist attitudes found in the south? Encouraged democrats running for congress to not join the KKK?

  45. Bob Roberts says:

    You know, I actually decided to post a link to this picture here then decided not to at least 10 times before I finally did.

    I mean, who wants to see that face even scrolling past as you look at old threads?

    Eyebleach may work for the stain on my retina, but you can’t un-see it except maybe through a partial lobotomy.

    AlphaMail says: April 2, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    I believe this critter’s dad played fiddle on the front porch in Deliverance. Anyone know, did Rosie O’Donnell have a part in that movie?

    No, but it is rumored she’s the illegitimate daughter of the banjo-playin kid in the movie.

  46. HeftyJo says:

    If we need to be treated for climate change denial then she needs to be treated for mongloidism.

    “Jessica Biel and Alba wearing matching thongs.”

    I see you’ll settle for very little.

    “A suitable placebo effect can be obtained by watching the USC womens volleyball team work out topless.”

    That’s what it’s called! I’ll remember that next time I have trouble hiding my excitement.

    Son of Taz said:

    Whoops, I meant

    She’s gone under cover on that website. I think it’s called “going into denial”, or “Gleick syndrome”.

    97% of deniers who expressed a preference said “Eeeugh”.

  48. cindy says:

    Many of her college profile pages are not available at this time. She’s gone underground.



  50. DawnieRotten says:

    Climate change/Global warming is, INDEED, “man-made”…..and it’s called HAARP (in conjunction with CHEM-trails). Don’t believe me; research it yourselves. Apparently, Ms. Goo-goo-crazy-eyes has never heard of it either!

  51. Pete Sagi says:

    I wish I was her dentist. I would be sure to have eaten a lot of garlic before her appointment, and have some serious wine and cheese flatulence kicking in. Once I got her in the chair, I would strap her in and go to work with the pulp tester. Then I would start drilling and filling without the local numbing agent. Perhaps a good root planing without the usual local as well.


  52. FrankL says:

    Skari Kari is right. Can we spell Thalidomide?

  53. Hugh Beaumont says:

    She used to be an AGW denier, and she got treated. Looks like it worked great!

  54. toolkien says:

    In a not unrelated footnote, I’ve begun tangibly exercising my 2nd amendment rights.

  55. Katherine McChesney says:

    She looks like she’s mentally challenged. Those teeth. That smile. Laughable. And she’s a sociologist….one of the most worthless degrees ever along side Womens studies and Black History.
