Harvard professor Naomi Oreskes co-penned a book about global warming and how the earth will one day be a wasteland unless drastic, draconian action is taken.

Robert Reich, a former U.S. secretary of labor for Bill Clinton, bled taxpayers last year of $242,613, yet he is expected to teach only one class this coming semester for his generous employer, the University of California, Berkeley.

Harvard professor Stephen Walt took to Twitter and blamed American foreign policy when Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 crashed over Ukraine.

Israel-hating professor Steven G. Salaita recently lost a job offer from taxpayer-funded University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign due to relentless, embarassingly juvenile tweets about his undying hatred of Israel. This professor is currently unemployed, but recently retweeted the importance of teaching “political consciousness.” (RELATED: BIZARRO Professor Who Blames Jews For Anti-Semitism Tweets Himself Out Of A Job)
University of Pennsylvania professor Anthea Butler called God racist in an essay she wrote after the Trayvon Martin verdict in 2013. The religious studies professor claimed that her vast knowledge of African American studies and religion gave her a warrant to make such claims. She added that there is no way UPenn would fire her because, after all, she’s tenured. (RELATED: Irate Ivy League Prof Calls God Racist After Zimmerman Verdict)
