Climate Scientists burn skeptical book

I really don't know what to say other than scientists photographed themselves burning a book skeptical of the warming hysteria.  The took the picture in their office at the University, and posted it on the Meteorology Department's campus web site:

Idiots.  Can anyone please explain to me how these Professors are smarter than you and me?  I sure don't see it.

Of course, now they're famous on teh Intarwebz, and so they flushed the picture down the memory hole.  Dudes - Ctrl+PrtScn takes a screenshot.  Just a helpful tip.
WEATHER, n. The climate of the hour. A permanent topic of conversation among persons whom it does not interest, but who have inherited the tendency to chatter about it from naked arboreal ancestors whom it keenly concerned. The setting up official weather bureaus and their maintenance in mendacity prove that even governments are accessible to suasion by the rude forefathers of the jungle.

Looks like a fine example of religious fanaticism vs. science.

Guess who the religious fanatics are.

They should have their PhDs revoked.

Huh. All them PhDs and they don't know about Ctrl+Print Screen buttons. Well, I suggest that everybody send them a copy of this image and instruct them on how it is done.

Talk about living in an echo chamber: they didn't even consider that this picture would create controversy?!? But, but isn't college supposed to be a place of free and open discussion?
Wait, what? Sorry.

So, I wonder how far it is from burning books that are skeptical of global warming, to burning people who are skeptical of global warming...

@ thesouthtexaspistolero: I suspect it's only a matter of degrees. Five or six hundred, probably.
