University of Graz Responds to Parncutt’s calls for death penalty for “deniers”

University of Graz Responds to Parncutt’s calls for death penalty for “deniers” ()2012-12-27). Yeah! Denialist outrage has led the University of Graz to censor their music professor’s ill-advised ramblings about climate change! Freedom from speech is victorious! Nothing more satisfying than a bit of successful bullying, is there Anthony? Monckton, of course, also got his stick in there.

Also, Skeptical Science and DeSmogBlog haven’t explicitly disavowed Professor Parncutt’s essay suggesting the execution of denialists, so that clearly means they support it.

UPDATE2: 2:55:PM PST In an email received today from Skeptical Science contributor Dana Nuccitelli, he has flat out refused to distance himself or the SkS website publicly from the Parncutt essay. Readers may recall that Parncutt used SkS as a reference in his essay calling for the death penalty. No word yet on whether John Cook (owner of the website) agrees and no word yet from DeSmog blog. – Anthony

Funny, I happen to have Mr. Nuccitelli’s actual response here, which was also posted as a comment that was blocked by Anthony’s censors, which seems a bit more nuanced than Anthony’s “reporting”:

We of course don’t agree with giving denialists the death penalty, but we’re also not going to waste our time commenting on what some German musicologist said just because he happens to (correctly) cite SkS as a factually accurate source on climate science.

Given than you frequently allow WUWT guest posts from people like Christopher Monckton, who aside from being a total nutjob (to put it as kindly as I can), says some pretty horrible things on a regular basis, I really don’t think you’re in a position to expect more than that.

  1. Ah, double standards of ‘me no understand real science and fool me often’ Willard, yet again rears it’s ugly face, to be seen by all.

    When the Arctic Ocean sea ice, falls to an unprecedented new record breaking consecutive lows in the summer melt season by September 2013/14/15/16/17…., until it is so thin, not even the satellites can detect it. Will Willard, then claim to his dwindling tiny band of climate denialati fanatics ; “Don’t worry folks, it is only temporary thing, the world is moving into the next ice age, always next year?”.

    “The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.” – Winston Churchill

  2. When Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik described climate change as a “eco-Marxist plot” and recommended a talk by Christopher Monckton, did Anthony Watts demand CM “explicitly disavow” his remarks?

    No, thought not.
