Robby Soave of The Daily Caller reports that two professors at San Jose State burned a book because they disagreed with its point of view.

Climate change profs burn skeptical book

Two environmentalism professors at San Jose State University were photographed hosting their own private book burning party.

The offending text, “The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism,” challenges the validity of man-made global warming.

The Heartland Institute, a conservative think tank, sent the book to the Department of Meteorology and Climate Science at SJSU. Department chairperson Dr. Alison Bridger and assistant professor Dr. Craig Clements eagerly posed for a photo depicting them applying a lit match to “The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism.”

The photo initially appeared on the department’s website with the caption, “This week we received a deluge of free books from the Heartland Institute… shown above, Drs. Bridger and Clements test the flammability of the book.”

After drawing criticism from conservative websites, the department took down the photo. Watts Up With That, a blog about climate change, saved a screenshot, however.

And here is the screenshot. Jonah Goldberg may have written the ultimate book about liberal fascism but nothing is more powerful than an image.
