Global Warming Skepticism must be "treated"

Now the word is getting out that Global Warming Skeptics need to be ... treated. I'm assuming that means with either medication or incarceration?
Skepticism 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 skepticism to that against racism and slavery in the US South.
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.

Also comparing skeptics to pre-civil war racists.

Now really lady ... this is rather low of you now don't you think. This is what we call a cheap shot ... and this one is as cheap as it gets.
