US college professor demands imprisonment for climate-change deniers
Daily Caller ^ | 03/17/2014 | Eric Owens

An assistant philosophy professor at Rochester Institute of Technology wants to send people who disagree with him about global warming to jail.

The professor is Lawrence Torcello. Last week, he published a 900-word-plus essay at an academic website called The Conversation.

Torcello, who has a Ph.D. from the University at Buffalo, explains that there are times when criminal negligence and “science misinformation” must be linked. The threat of climate change, he says, is one of those times.

Throughout the piece, he refers to the bizarre political aftermath of an earthquake in L’Aquila, Italy, which saw six scientists imprisoned for six years each because they failed to “clearly communicate risks to the public” about living in an earthquake zone.

Torcello says that people are already dying because of global warming. “Nonetheless, climate denial remains a serious deterrent against meaningful political action in the very countries most responsible for the crisis.”

As such, Torcello wants governments to make “the funding of climate denial” a crime.

“Nonetheless, climate denial remains a serious deterrent against meaningful political action in the very countries most responsible for the crisis.”

Is he talking about India and China? Two of the ninety countries which were exempted from the Kyoto Protocol (The "Don't pee in the pool"-protocol).

Is there any wonder why the US's world ranking in Science and Math education is sucking hind tit behind every other civilized country?

Or why hi-tech engineering and technology companies have shut their doors and moved to other countries to find qualified employees?
