Dear Pres. Obama: Happy Earth Day!

by Kiko Matsing

Excerpts from Kari Norgaard’s open letter to Obama, posted on Whitman College’s website:

Asst. Prof. of Sociology
and Environmental Studies

First of all, I’d like to say thank you for taking our environment seriously. At this point, our most profound moral, economic and social obligation is to bring climate change under control…

Don’t wait for public consensus on climate change… Public opinion does matter in a democracy, but this is a time when following it would be a serious mistake….

This is the same quack professor who suggested that “‘cultural resistance’ to accepting humans as being responsible for climate change ‘must be recognised and treated’ as an aberrant sociological behaviour… equitable to overcoming ‘racism or slavery in the U.S. South’”(UK Daily Mail)

She had presented her paper in the same environmental conference, “Planet Under Pressure,” that put out a consensus statement “calling for humans to be packed into denser cities so that the rest of the planet can be surrendered to mother nature.” This is ironic since in her faculty bio webpage, which has since been disabled by both Whitman College and Oregon University, she describes herself as loving the outdoors and being with nature. I guess the draconian rules these environmental fascists want to impose on everyone else do not apply to them. They want more pristine nature only for themselves.

Yes, let’s cede our freedoms to these environmental technocrats…

Happy Earthday!
