Professors Tell Students: Disagree With Climate Change? Shut Up, Get Out

...three professors from the University of Colorado, who have declared that on the subject of climate change, their students aren't allowed to dissent with their views:
Three professors co-teaching an online course called “Medical Humanities in the Digital Age” at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs recently told their students via email that man-made climate change is not open for debate, and those who think otherwise have no place in their course.
...The email also banned discussion on class message boards, and told students who have a problem with that to drop the class.

First, why is a Humanities course talking about climate change?

Oh, right: Everything must be used to advance the narrative, even if it has no place in the discussion.

While you might expect better from college professors, they either don't know or don't care that their "98 percent of climate scientists" argument has been debunked, junked, and ridiculed for a long time now, and not just by fly-by-night blogs no one has heard of, either.
