Drapela Decision Unrelated to AGW Views, Says University

A news report from southern Oregon interviews Nicholas Drapela, the OSU chemistry instructor whose contract was not renewed. It also quotes the OSU Vice President of University Relations as saying Drapela's views on global warming had nothing whatsoever to do with the decision. He added, "The University really doesn't care about individual's personal views or their personal activities.

[I'll save commenters a lot of trouble by giving their response here: "Of course the university would say that. It's all part of the conspiracy, dude."]

Background here. Thanks to Marco for the heads up.

So what gives? I live nearby too, & I always knew the AGW controversy was pretty set at OSU. This is the same place that extolls Marcus Borg & the Jesus Seminar, so they breathe the same air.

Do you know anybody in the Chem Dept?
