And has a hissy fit
(Yahoo News) Energy Secretary Steven Chu, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist frequently the target of Republican criticism, announced Friday that he was stepping down in the latest shake-up of President Barack Obama’s Cabinet. Chu, who disclosed his decision in a letter to Energy Department staff, frequently clashed with GOP lawmakers over gas prices as well as government backing for green-energy companies like the failed firm Solyndra.
In his letter, Chu took aim directly at his critics, saying the clean-energy efforts were a success—and blasted climate-change skeptics as trapped in “the Stone Age.”
A success, if your definition of includes massively wasting taxpayer money and watching Stimulus funded companies (80% of which were Obama/Democrat donors) go bankrupt, while increasing the costs of food and pretty much everything else.
He also scolded climate-change skeptics and urged a shift from fossil-fuels to other sources of energy.
While Chu doesn’t have a car himself, his wife drives a gas guzzling BMW 325i. No Chevy Volt for the Chu’s! Oh, and I wonder how Chu gets around the country? Fossil fueled travel would be the likely answer.
“The overwhelming scientific consensus is that human activity has had a significant and likely dominant role in climate change,” Chu warned in his letter. “There is also increasingly compelling evidence that the weather changes we have witnessed during this thirty year time period are due to climate change.”
Consensus is not science. But, then, this has never been about science, but about forcing far left progressive/fascist ideals on people. As for “weather changes”
(Roger Pielke, Jr) With this post I am creating a handy bullshit button on this subject (pictured above). Anytime that you read claims that invoke disasters loss trends as an indication of human-caused climate change, including the currently popular “billion dollar disasters” meme, you can simply call “bullshit” and point to the IPCC SREX report.
The “extreme weather” mantra is a huge steaming pile of mule fritters.
And if Warmists like Chu actually believed their own propaganda, they’d change their own lives to be “carbon neutral”. They won’t.
