'One apparently crazed professor now calling for the death penalty for people who disagree with the IPCC dogma. Call it an interesting case of budding fanaticism. University of Graz professor calls for the death penalty for people who question the IPCC'
'Christopher Monckton and many other skeptics have been writing to Prof Richard Parncutt who had posted a dissertation telling us “logically” influential climate skeptics should be executed. Below, Monckton points out it is a hate-crime, and he will begin he will be notifying Austrian prosecutors, Interpol, the International Criminal Court, and possibly Australian authorities too. In response, Parncutt unconditionally apologizes and withdraws the suggestion'
Prof. Richard Parncutt of U. of Graz on climate skeptics: 'They are already causing the deaths of hundreds of millions of future people. We could be speaking of billions, but I am making a conservative estimate...some GW deniers would never admit their mistake and as a result they would be executed. Perhaps that would be the only way to stop the rest of them'
Meteorologist Cliff Mass: Without global warming, we “still would have experienced the most severe heat wave of the past century.” ... Mass concluded climate change didn’t play a central role in an event largely caused by the natural variability of our regional weather. He notes the temperature soared by more than 40 degrees above the normal high, and climate change added only a few degrees, thus “a record-breaking unique heat wave” would have occurred even without global warming. In his blog, he lays out a golden rule that — based on this analysis — the bigger the temperature surge in an extreme event, the smaller the role of climate change, and accuses the World Weather Attribution report of “misinforming millions.” Mass says his criticism is grounded in a deep knowledge of the intricate mix of ocean, mountains and atmospheric flows that help to produce Northwest weather, as well as climate models he runs. ...
“I don’t believe we are facing any kind of existential threat,” Mass said. “But it is not a good idea to muck around with the climate of the planet.”
