A University of Oregon sociologist Kari Norgaard took part in a panel discussion with scientists from around the globe last week in London to talk about climate change. What she said, and what was said about what she said, have drawn ire from climate change skeptics, including radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, according to a story in the morning’s Eugene Register Guard:
But upon her return, she found her name on Rush Limbaugh’s lips, her university e-mail stuffed with hundreds of hateful messages and the UO itself under attack in the blogosphere for “Stalinesque” changes to its website.
It’s a difficult news story to aggregate, but one worth reading. What do you make of the controversy, the reaction, that ding on Oregon’s Mighty Ducks, and the UO’s clumsy removal of still-cached Norgaard’s web page?
