Professors to students – Drop class if you dispute man-made climate change

Man-made climate change is not open for debate.


Wacky Professor31 Aug 2016 – In an email describing their course “Medical Humanities in the Digital Age” at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, professors advised their students that man-made climate change is not open for debate, and that those who think otherwise have no place in their course.

“The point of departure for this course is based on the scientific premise that human induced climate change is valid and occurring,” the email states.

So much for free, scientific inquiry.

  1. Welcome to the world of “man made global warming is real and is going to kill us all! Now give me your money!” LOL

  2. It’s “Colorado” ?

    Colorado is Satan’s Winter Get-a-Way, and contains some of the most evil of Mankind so “never” expect anything truthful out of Colorado, they love the lie/lies, they embrace them and for anyone who seeks an education in Colorado, they’re NUTS !

    That’s why they are there…

    • Really? Both evil and good can be found wherever you look. I don’t think one backward professor at UCCS speaks for, or represents, the entire state.

  3. The church of global warming says it’s so and if you don’t conform you shall be burned at the stake!
    Sounds like the dark ages to me, or have they changed that part of history as well?

  4. As much as I hate the climate Nazis, I can kind of agree with the prof in this case. A prof has the right to set the terms of his course. If you don’t like his/her terms, then don’t sign up.

    Too many students think they are on equal terms with the prof. Contesting a prof’s opinion might make sense if you have the trained mind of a grad student. But underclassmen need to realize their academic thinking is still little more than untrained, uninformed opinion.

    • I don’t agree. This professor is basically saying that AGW is true, and they do not want anyone on their course that disagrees with that belief. So they are actually telling their students how they should think. Students should have the right to debate with their tutors. And it’s up to the tutor to prove them wrong. In this case it’s the tutor who has the ‘untrained, uninformed opinion’, Gene, and they’re trying to force that uninformed opinion on future students! It’s a disgrace.

    • If that were to be so Gene we would have never left the “Dark Ages”.
      Through correspondence and open dialog more than once I argued a good case and won against my instructor while in first and second term college. Even won an arguments resulting in the rewording of a couple of equations. The arguments presented gave all respect in the forwards and closing arguments to the instructors asking for consideration of my proposals.
      On a point that may make the professor look foolish in front of the class it would be more appropriate to construct a written correspondence so as not to publicly humiliate one. Especially yourself lol.

    Comment:
    When Human Induced Climate change is finally exposed for the junk it is. The entire faculty in charge of this course “Medical Humanities in the Digital Age” tenured or otherwise need to be fired without compensation or notice.
    If necessary the entire faculty staff from the Dean downwards need to go for teaching fairy tales as truth.

  6. University of Colorado?
    I see! Looks as though the professor has been smoking too much “Mary-Wana”.
    Obviously, our education system forgot to teach students to think for themselves rather than gather a flock behind some religious fairytale.

  7. well the ONLY good thing is students dont have to waste time n money enrolling
    and with luck enough intelligent students will avoid the classes and they get shutdown due to lack of bums on seats

  8. Yeah, I wouldn’t be taking those classes. But the, “Medical Humanities in the Digital Age,” sounds like some liberal/progressive B.S. and not hard science.

  9. Free Speech and Free Thought are heartily encouraged by the Progressive Left,………………just as long as that speaker, or thinker, agrees with the Progressive “Global Warming” ideology. Otherwise, a dissenter is totally out of bounds and must be excluded. Arguing the merits of the premises is not open to debate. So much for Freedom of Thought.

  10. The paradox of unanimity
    The closer one gets to a 100%
    consensus, the more likely the data producing the consensus is wrong.
    Especially when dealing with a system or situation where disagreement is
    expected.

    The degree to which you should trust consensus is in direct proportion
    to the level of uncertainty involved, which in itself is directly
    related to the complexity of the system or question.

  11. This is not unusual.

    If you want to pass your exams you will give them back the answers they have taught during the semester.

    There is NO debate in University – parrot the material taught and you pass – don’t and you fail.

    Universities and other education institutions are most decidedly NOT amenable to debate no matter what spin they put on this !

    Pass or fail -your choice !

  12. Education is not about expanding knowledge !

    As someone who has progressed through several institutions I assure you it is about the uneducated “initiate” proving they can comprehend the “gospel” and demonstrating they can solve problems using the “ordained’ methods.

    Nothing else is acceptable. Really !

  13. As the global warming paradigm falls apart, we will see hard core supporters like these “progressive” college professors clinging desperately to their beliefs and becoming more and more intransigent, insistent and irrational about AGW. This kind of nonsense is just symptomatic of the fact that public support of AGW will soon disappear.
