You can tell a lot by a person's face, especially when it's a crazy looking face
Professor accidentally validates the science of phrenology. We know, we know, it’s a strange headline, but look at that crazy face. Then read about her theory that climate change skepticism is a sickness that needs to be treated. The face matches the theory, doesn’t it?

Progs is progs. The last time they were in fashion in the 1920s and 30s they were warning us that the scientific consensus was settled: black people were inferior and were breeding too much for the common good. Ergo sterilization was called for.

It’s not her looks that offend me, it’s her ideas. She’s an old-fashioned Leftist dressed up in Green glad rags. I can see her running a Siberian gulag or a re-education camp where “bad ideas” are scrubbed away and replaced by “correct ideas”. Mr. Norgaard wants to treat people who disagree with her not as ill-informed but as ill-intentioned—and dealt with accordingly.

From the pages of Kafka and Orwell to an Oregon campus.

I pity her photographer. Imagine the conversation:

“Now, turn to your left, professor, and let me get a picture of you from your good side. Keeeep turning. Keeep turning. Awwww shit. I hate my job.”

LOL I have seen a lot of pics of her lately and I got to say that they probably don’t do her justice, she has got to look worst than that in real life.

Why is she wearing Ted Kennedy’s old neck brace?

If you have a toddler who has possibly ingested poison, do not waste your money on syrup of ipecac. Show them this picture.

* Of course if you find said toddler rolling on the floor laughing instead of puking his/her guts out, you might want to have some on hand as a backup plan.

Andre: “While Lot had an actual geographical location in mind, “where to go” is not necessarily limited to physical locations. Maintaining your own spiritual integrity is a destination, though in a different sense.”

It is. It is also a struggle especially in an ever present and ever increasingly disgusting world, but it is very important to keep it real. I know that it is worth it.

Um… I read that article, then the article it links to regarding the paper. I didn’t see anything in there that says skepticism to anthropogenic climate change is a sickness that needs to be treated.

I’m usually not this dense, but for the life of me I absolutely can’t tell if you’re serious or being sarcastic and I’m just missing the joke.

No, East TN Patriot is not joking nor being sarcastic. Just pointing out that the professor’s actual words are not present in the article. The author of the article doesn’t provide the exact quote from the professor just his/her interpretation of the professor’s paper.

OK I see what you are saying he didn’t put up the quote, however he is in essence stating what she meant.

“An Oregon University professor has controversially compared skepticism of global warming to racism.
Sociology and environmental studies professor Kari Norgaard wrote a paper criticising non-believers, suggesting that doubters need to be have a ‘sickness’.
The professor, who holds a B.S. in biology and a master’s and PhD in sociology, argued that ‘cultural resistance’ to accepting humans as being responsible for climate change ‘must be recognised and treated’ as an aberrant sociological behaviour.

As I read more about this woman I think that the writers captured the essence of her ideas pretty well.

@ drb that’s why I included dense (meaning me ) in the ? and refrained from commenting either way. 😉
