Petition asks Yale to consider revoking honorary degrees to billionaire, Cosby
(full story below)
A petition signed by 37 alumni asks Yale University President Peter Salovey to create an independent faculty committee to consider revoking the honorary degrees granted to Swiss industrialist Stephan Schmidheiny and to comedian Bill Cosby.

Schmidheiny, who owned a string of asbestos concrete factories that have caused more than 2,000 deaths, was given his degree in 1996, four years after he sold his Swiss Eternit Group.

“In 2013, after a lengthy trial and appeal, Mr. Schmidheiny was sentenced to 18 years of prison for creating an environmental disaster which caused the deaths of well over 2,000 people — both workers and residents — in the town of Casale Monferrato, Italy,” the petition states. That conviction was overturned because the statute of limitations had passed.
