I wish to claim that it is generally ok to kill someone in order to save one million people. Similarly, the death penalty is an appropriate punishment for GW deniers who are so influential that one million future deaths can with high probability be traced to their personal actions.
— Professor Richard Parncutt, University of Graz, Austria, an expert on the psychology of music
Being in academia must create expert status in all areas as this music professor wants “influential” global warming deniers dead due to his clear expertise in climate science. Professor Parncutt as since apologized once his words became public, and I’d be willing to bet if he had an opportunity to kill an influential climate denier himself, he’d wimp out big time.
