Abusive Parents

Obama’s ideological Energy Secretary Steven Chu looks at Americans as unruly teens who need to be schooled. Guess what they need to be educated about, according to Chu.

When it comes to greenhouse-gas emissions, Energy Secretary Steven Chu sees Americans as unruly teenagers and the Administration as the parent that will have to teach them a few lessons.

Speaking on the sidelines of a smart grid conference in Washington, Dr. Chu said he didn’t think average folks had the know-how or will to to change their behavior enough to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.

“The American public…just like your teenage kids, aren’t acting in a way that they should act,” Dr. Chu said. “The American public has to really understand in their core how important this issue is.” (In that case, the Energy Department has a few renegade teens of its own.)

The administration aims to teach them—literally. The Environmental Protection Agency is focusing on real children. Partnering with the Parent Teacher Organization, the agency earlier this month launched a cross-country tour of 6,000 schools to teach students about climate change and energy efficiency.

Except that even the NY Times is having to admit our climate is stable and may be cooling. Which suggests the AGW is bunk an solar activity (ya think?!) has more to do with it.

Leave it to the administration to try to brainwash our kids with lies rather than deal with reality. After all, the Cap and Trade scheme dreamed up by the administration will cause our economy to go into major decline. Worse than it is now. As it is, Obama’s policies risk throwing us into a depression.
