Merry Christmas, global warming skeptics. Now, die!!

Ignore the facts! The science is settled!

Accept the consensus or burn, heretic!

Well, there’s the Christmas spirit for you: A music professor in Austria (musicology professors being known experts in science) has decided that skeptics of anthropogenic global warming (1) are so endangering the planet that, if they do not recant, they should all be executed:

Prof Richard Parncutt says:

“I have always been opposed to the death penalty in all cases…”

“Even mass murderers [like Breivik] should not be executed, in my opinion.”

“GW deniers fall into a completely different category from Behring Breivik. 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.”


If a jury of suitably qualified scientists estimated that a given GW denier had already, with high probability (say 95%), caused the deaths of over one million future people, then s/he would be sentenced to death. The sentence would then be commuted to life imprisonment if the accused admitted their mistake, demonstrated genuine regret, AND participated significantly and positively over a long period in programs to reduce the effects of GW (from jail) – using much the same means that were previously used to spread the message of denial. At the end of that process, 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. The death penalty would have been justified in terms of the enormous numbers of saved future lives.

Take note: the killer of 77 adults and children in Norway does not deserve death, but skeptics who question the existence of a phenomenon about which there is serious doubt must die, because they are responsible for the deaths of millions who do not even exist yet.

And they call us “loony.”

But at least you get a fair trial before a jury of qualified scientists! “Qualified,” of course, means “accepts the orthodoxy of the Church of Climate Change.”

Galileo would recognize this in an instant.

Oh, in case you’re wondering, the professor (or his bosses) have already taken that page down. You can read all about it, however, at JoNova.

  1. This professor sounds like an islamic extremist making it a safe bet that had Breivik killed Muslims we would be hearing a different tune altogether. No one has ever seen an Al Gore invention but many have listnend to them.

  2. Bill says:

    How fitting that this nut is from Austria. Wasn’t Hitler born in Austria? And didn’t Hitler say the same about the Jews? Must be something in the water.

  3. Lorica says:

    I find these sort of people odd and laughable. He is so concerned about the hundreds of thousands of future people, but you have to ask why. When one of the current causes of the maniac left is population growth. Why do you care about future generations when you are just going to kill them anyway?!?!?! The thinking makes no sense. Let us do what we can, recycle, be concerned with our enviroment, but some of these lunatics would have no problem with the “Logan’s run” final solution. Of that I am sure. – Lorica

  4. Sefton says:

    Along with UN backing, guys like this and Ezekiel Emanuel could form the Fourth Reich.

  5. So Cal Jim says:

    This is how the left constantly advances their arguments which ultimately lead to laws advancing their policies. One of their academics will stake out an extreme and outrageous position. Main stream politicians and more “reasonable” commentators will poo-poo the extreme idea while voicing sympathy for a less extreme position along the same path. Like the directions on a bottle of shampoo, they “rinse and repeat” over and over until the earlier disavowed extreme position becomes the norm. Think how the tactic worked with “gay marriage.” 50 years ago every and any serious politician would have laughed at the notion. Even those on the far left would scoff at a “slippery slope” argument (as they still do). Yet, here we are. Come out publicly against gay marriage and you’re instantly a pariah. 50 years ago only the most stridently radical were openly hostile to Christianity in the public sphere. Yet, look at where we are now.

    I think we have reason to fear this professor. He is in the Left’s vanguard and they WILL go where he suggests if they’re not actively and vigorously resisted. This is not a laughing matter.

    “Conservatives” of today are for the most part somewhat left of Jack Kennedy.

    Kinda says a lot about how far the loony left has traveled to get to where they think the “norm” is today, doncha think?

    Your analysis is spot on SC Jim.

  7. Earthling (Spain) says:

    Not all Austrians are bad, the world would be different if Strauss, Mozart, Porshe and hundreds of other notables hadn’t lived.
    Suffice it to say that every barrel contains a few bad apples.

    Merry Christmas.

  8. Michael says:

    Global warming is real. Everyone living on land that once was under glaciers and ice sheets (like Long Island and Chicago, Paris and London) knows that for a fact!

    In geological terms, and time scales, it is inevitable that the icecaps will melt and sea levels will rise. And one day, a major volcano will erupt and explode, fill the sky with hundreds of millions of tons of ash and smoke, and the planet will cool down again and the snows will fall for hundreds of years.

    The geologic record doesn’t lie. We have fossils that prove that the American Midwest was once under a massive sea, and that the Med was once a thriving plain, that the Sahara was once savanna, and that ancient nomads once walked across the Bering Plateau.

  9. @Michael–Have you, by chance, been partying with Pelosi?

  10. Carlos says:

    Doesn’t have to have been partying with Pelousy or any other moonbat, Drew. Everything he says is provable by geologic record.

    Howsomeever, what does any of that have to do with AGW? Seems to me that that’s where moonbat arguments fall off the charts because we can prove warming and cooling in the past, places on earth uninhabitable now that were at some distant time past lush forests (how else to explain oil fields in Alaska?), and they would be very hard pressed to prove that the cause of every warming cycle was man-caused, since man wasn’t even around for the majority of them (geologically speaking).

    The only way they can keep the narrative going is by screaming the loudest and longest, and threatening the most savagely. Fear has an amazing ability to cause the human mind to accept the most illogical of all things, and the loony left knows it. That’s why all the fearmongering, from Obhammed, from Algore, from “scientists” whose very sustenance depends on government funding, and from envirowhackos whose primary goal isn’t “saving” the environment but gaining control over all the peons out here not smart enough to know how to live their lives without instructions from the elite educateds.

    This professor is very articulate.

    But behind closed doors he screams
    ” Silence!!! … I keeeeeel you!!!! “
