University of Graz Responds to Parncutt’s calls for death penalty for “deniers” | Watts Up With That?
The University of Graz is shocked and appalled by the article and rejects its arguments entirely. The University places considerable importance on respecting all human rights and does not accept inhuman statements. Furthermore, the University of Graz points out clearly that a personal and individual opinion which is not related to scientific work cannot be tolerated on websites of the University.

Last day to make a comment on update of AGU position statement on climate change:
E.P.A. Chief to Step Down, With Climate Still Low Priority -
Ms. Jackson’s departure comes as many in the environmental movement are questioning Mr. Obama’s commitment to dealing with climate change and other environmental problems. After his re-election, and a campaign in which global warming was barely mentioned by either candidate, Mr. Obama said that his first priority would be jobs and the economy and that he intended only to foster a “conversation” on climate change in the coming months.

Didn't the city of Graz change the name of a local sports stadium originally named after one of its more prominent sons, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to protest the governor's decision to sign a death warrant for a convicted murderer and gang leader?

I guess Stalinism is making a comeback. The death penalty for actual convicted murderers is morally wrong but a moral necessity for the crime of holding an opinion.
