The “Green Weenie of the Year” award – as determined by an influential blog written by several attorneys featured in National Review, The Weekly Standard and The American Enterprise – goes to a professor from Austria for advocating that those who don’t believe in global warming should be, well, killed.
“The winner of Power Line’s coveted first annual Green Weenie of the Year Award goes to Prof. Richard Parncutt of the University of Graz, Austria,” the organization announced on Christmas Day.
He’s the Thomas Smith Distinguished Fellow at the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University in Ohio, and he directs the new honors program in political economy. He’s also the William Simon Distinguished Visiting Professor at Pepperdine’s Graduate School of Public Policy.
