    CLIMATE MCCARTHYISM CLAIMS YET ANOTHER VICTIM

    Climate McCarthyism has claimed another victim. Dr Caleb Rossiter - an adjunct professor at American University, Washington DC - has been fired by a progressive think tank after publicly expressing doubt about man-made global warming.

    Rossiter, a former Democratic congressional candidate, has impeccably liberal credentials. As the founder of Demilitarization for Democracy he has campaigned against US backed wars in Central America and Southern Africa, against US military support for dictators and against anti-personnel landmines. But none of this was enough to spare him the wrath of the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) when he wrote an OpEd in the Wall Street Journal describing man-made global warming as an "unproved science."

    Two days later, he was sacked by email. The IPS said: "We would like to inform you that we are terminating your position as an Associate Fellow of the Institute for Policy Studies...Unfortunately, we now feel that your views on key issues, including climate science, climate justice, and many aspects of US policy to Africa, diverge so significantly from ours."

    In the WSJ OpEd entitled Sacrificing Africa for Climate Change, Rossiter argued that Africans should benefit from the same mixed energy policy as Americans rather than being denied access to fossil fuels on spurious environmental grounds by green activists. He wrote: "The left wants to stop industrialization - even if the hypothesis of catastrophic, man-made global warming is false."
    Heh! IPS, IMO, has the right to do what it did. It just shows how dogmatic supposedly significant "open-minded", "tolerant" liberals really are. Not only must one's "principles" be strictly orthodox to be a liberal, but the hierarchy of those "principles" must be orthodox! And since the guy they fired was using the liberals', "It's not fair ...!" argument, this blue-on-blue action is all the more amusing to me!

    Adjunct professors have no rights in the academic system. They are the illegal aliens of the university economy--low pay, no rights, no respect--and they teach 70% of all the undergraduate classes.

    Perhaps he'll end up as a contributor on Fox News. That's where all the libs abused by other libs tend to find employment. I'm still waiting to see compassionate liberals---don't think they exist.
