Scientists Getting Hate Mail... Empty Scientists Getting Hate Mail...

Climate Scientists have been getting hate mail after publishing their research. There is no excuse for that in any form. It's one thing to disaggree even strongly, but it's another thing to abuse some-one because you disaggree.

In late March 2012, Kari Norgaard, a University of Oregon sociology and environmental studies professor, was flying home from a conference in England.

She landed in Washington, D.C., checked her email and noticed a message from Marc Morano, a global warming skeptic who runs the blog Climate Depot, criticizing the research she had presented at the conference.

Norgaard was surprised Morano had noticed her, because although her university had written a press release, she hadn't seen much coverage of her research, which focuses on why it is so difficult for societies to take action to respond to climate change.

"I'm not actually sure, at first, how Marc Morano found it," she said. Norgaard ignored the email and hopped onto her final connecting flight to Portland, Ore.

But Morano had also posted about Norgaard on his blog. The headline included her email address and the phrase: "Meet Prof. Kari Norgaard, the woman who wants to 'treat' global warming skeptics."

"I made it to Portland, and by then I was getting just swamped with emails," Norgaard recalled. They "were pretty vicious." As her inbox filled up, Norgaard talked with colleagues and began to realize her situation was far from unique.

Well, this is taking climate denial to a new low.
