Tyler (KETK) — I just wish Scott Chesner was here so I could see his head explode.
The Daily Caller reports 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.
His main complaint is his belief that certain nefarious, unidentified individuals have organized a "campaign funding misinformation." Such a campaign, he argues, "ought to be considered criminally negligent."
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. As such, Torcello wants governments to make "the funding of climate denial" a crime.
Let's see. All the free-thinkers and do-gooders now want no opposition. That man is a college professor.
Don't they foster dialog and open conversation about the world? The answer is yes, as long as it fits into whatever agenda they are in to.
This college needs to take a long look into this guy, but they won't.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
