The question is kind of a ‘chicken or the egg’ type of issue.  Does global warming make you go nuts, or do you have to be nuts to buy into global warming?

Via Gateway Pundit:

Another day… Another attack on the “deniers.”
Radical, nutty, propagandist Professor Kari Norgaard has followed the lead of all the other Liberals who can’t use data and facts to win their argument.  Professor Norgaard, from the University of Oregon, says to deny Global Warming junk science is “racism.”  But, it’s even more absurd than that.  If you reject the junk data, corruption, and blatant grab for power that is the Green Movement she wants you diagnosed with a disease.  And treated.
Via Bluegrass PunditThe Register reports,
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.
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.’
