Kari, you ignorant slut

Village Idiot

Sociology professor explains why climate realists can’t think straight.

At the personal level, climate-change information raises fear about the future, a sense of helplessness and guilt. These emotions clash with individual — and often national — identity, sense of self-efficacy and the need for basic security and survival. In small groups, interactions often subvert political conversations and/or submerge the visibility of climate-change issues. At the macro level, or society at large, the co-authors point to an absence of serious discussion of climate change within U.S. Congressional hearings and in media coverage.

What this twat can’t recognize – perhaps she’s in denial – is that climate realists don’t suffer any of the feelings she does: no fear about the future, no helplessness, no guilt. She’s – what’s the term, Walt, “transferring”? Whatever, she’s shifting her hysteria onto us and then claiming we’re deranged. With this kind of thinking, no wonder she’s a professor. That, and her incredible academic accomplishments, like writing

Norgaard, Kari Marie. 1999. “Moon Phases, Menstrual Cycles and Mother Earth: The
Construction of a Special Relationship Between Women and Nature,” Ethics and
the Environment 4(2): 197-209.

    All I can see is a massive orthodontia bill – call me shallow, I guess…

    It’s called projecting CF, e.g., a person who’s angry all the time sees others as the ones with an anger problem. It’s a problem suffered by those at the lowest level on the scale of emotional development, a level at which one has yet to even develop an ego. In her case, it might be that she’s an idiot and sees others as the ones with her problem, i.e., as idiots.

    I see she wrote a book about the “Special Relationship Between Women and Nature”. Let us hope she is more naturalist than naturist. Special note to GG: while there are many people stupid enough to get close to bears — even a small black bear can easily kill you — I doubt there are any stupid enough to do it without their cloths on. Just because you are two things doesn’t mean you have to do both simultaneously. As far as nudists calling themselves naturists, I would imagine it’s for the same reason that people with a phd in basket weaving call themselves doctor — it sounds better.

    good lordy have you seen the titles of her published works?

    must be nice to not have a real job, i.e. earning a living creating something or providing a service of value that people will pay for. lucky for her that her bile is shoveled onto students, mostly at taxpayer expense.

    @GG, believe it or not, Chris chose the most flattering picture on the web of this woman.

    I guess you could call me shallow too.

    Oh My God! Anon at 12:43 – that is beyond frightening!
    There is no reason that any right minded woman with a job should go around looking like that!
    I would send in a beauty SWAT team, asap.
    It would cost some bucks for sure but it would be SO worth it.
    I would need about 10,000 dollars I think but I could do it. (this is the low end here, folks, professor’s salary and all)
    Orthodontics would take up most of it, contacts, basic dermatological services such as glycolic peels, etc – she has decent skin, thank goodness. Hair and makeup and some clothes, god, I forgot about the wardrobe!
    Ok, 20,000 dollars…
    It could change her life!

    AJ, for a second there, I thought you were referring to the owner of this blog.

    Wow. If she weren’t so ugly, Kari would be known mainly for being stupid.

    Sorta like Barbra Streisand, Roseanne Barr and Rosie “queen of mean” O’Donnell.

    GG: Criticize the woman’s work but to make fun of her appearance is totally and dead wrong. Honestly, I know more “beautiful people” who are unhappy than those who are in the normal to unfortunate range. It’s all how you think of yourself. And if she’s happy, and by all accounts, her life is fulfilling and rewarding, and her smile proves it, then, let her be. She certainly doesn’t sit home worried that someone in ‘Better Look Gorgeous in Greenwich or Your Husband Will Leave You Land’ might think she needs dental work or a new wardrobe or a facial peel. I find that when people like themselves, they radiate, no matter their size or teeth. Kari, as dumb as her work is, seems to exude happiness.

    @GG, let’s just leave as this, she has a very asymmetrical face. Bless her heart. If you improve the packaging she might find a wider audience.

    i will bet she has hairy legs and arm pits……………………………NASTY!

  12. Greenwich Gal

    Yes, Catty, her looks are unfortunate. Nobody is blessed with perfection! And to the other anon – I am not judging her work by her appearance – merely that she could vastly improve the situation. We are all visual creatures, men even more so, and as the great Dame Margot Fonteyn once said, trying to look one’s best is a kindness to the others around you. I could not agree more.

    The photo kind of reminds me of the Jerry Lewis movie, “The Nutty Professor”, where he discovers the secret “foimula” as they would say in “Longue” Island, that turns him from cretin to suave sophisticate. What always confused me about the movie was that smooth persona of the professor was less cool hepcat and just mostly that of an obnoxious heel.

    Twit is the word I think you were looking for. Let’s stay classy.
