San Jose State University Meteorology decides burning books they donít agree with is better.....
watts Up With That? ^ | May 2, 2013 | Anthony Watts

From the Fahrenheit 451 department comes this indictment of California’s higher education’s “tolerance” for opposing views. When I first got the tip on this, I thought to myself “nobody can be this stupid to photograph themselves doing this” but, here they are, right from the San Jose State University Meteorology Department web page:

SJSU_bookfire

The caption from the SJSU website reads:

This week we received a deluge of free books from the Heartland Institute {this or this }. The book is entitled “The Mad, Mad, Made World of Climatism”. SHown above, Drs. Bridger and Clements test the flammability of the book.

Maybe they just can’t help themselves, note the pictures on the wall.

Here is a screencap of the website relevant section:

SJSU_book_burn

SJSU Meteorology page is here: http://www.sjsu.edu/meteorology/

Fully archived here:

http://www.webcitation.org/6GJvAbb2t

This is the link for book: The Mad Mad Mad World of Climatism

I think Drs. Bridger and Clements have proved the point of the book quite well.

if you wish to comment on their photo, here’s where:

If they agree with the climate science bull Obama, one should question the source of their PhDs.

It is obvious that physics is not their forte.

Neither is math.

SA 101, and SS advanced placement ~ burning books always gives people a bad reputation.

I see that Allison Bridger is chair of the department.

She’s evidently burned her way up to the top.

Well, that is another “university” whose students I will never hire. Nothing personal, but I simply doubt whether they were taught any critical thinking skills. Hint: I read a LOT of leftist junk so I know how to take it apart. Burning books that contain opposing views OTOH reflects a weak mind. And weak minds make poor teachers.

They appear to be leftist terrorists who need to be reported to HLS.

She apparently has a thing for fire if the framed photos behind her are an indication.

I’ve interviewed a few job candidates from San Jose State and was never impressed. I also had a co-worker who had zero respect for any SJ State grads, but never really understood it until now.

If the internet died tomorrow and never came back, there would still be enlightened humans who would write books and teach Humanity. It has happened over and over, throughout human history. The Clear Spirits never go away. They just keep messin’ with ya.

Gosh, this wonderful book-burning stuff makes me feel warm and Nazi/fascist all over!*

I wonder if either one of them is Jewish.

For years, liberals in Hollywood have been depicting conservatives as book burners. I wish I had a dollar for every show they’ve made over the years with that theme. And yet, here the liberals are, burning books that they don’t like. The irony is so thick, it’s unbearable.

I don’t know any real meteorologists who believe in global warming.

The science doesn’t support it. Those kids going there should get their money back nd go somewhere else.
