Does Entire Obama Administration Believe We Are Unruly Teenagers?

The Washington Examiner has reported some comments made by the Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, that on the surface piss me off, but have a dark undercurrent.  I know the mainstream media likes to use “dark undercurrent” to describe tea parties, but when looking at the Secretary’s comments, I believe that is the most accurate way to describe them.  Steven Chu said, “the American public…just like your teenage kids, aren’t acting in a way that they should act. The American public has to really understand in their core how important this issue is.” 

And the EPA is joining this fight to get us all to understand how important it is for them to control our homes and lives.  “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. We’re showing people across the country how energy efficiency can be part of what they do every day,” said EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson. “Confronting climate change, saving money on our utility bills, and reducing our use of heavily-polluting energy can be as easy as making a few small changes.”  So they need to indoctrinate all of us like children, including the children.  We just do not know what is good for us.

If we are teenagers, then I guess that makes Obama Big Daddy.  You can ask Mr. Chu if you can stay up late tonight at

  1. So – I am curious how the EPA should be acting toward people who deny the reality of global warming and seem to think that pollution in the name of profit is an OK thing?

    Yes – I am sure you will tell me that global warming is one big indoctrination scheme. Unfortunately, the vast majority of scientists think it is very real – and scientists as a group are an apolitical group.

    One characteristic of teenagers is that they believe what they want to believe despite evidence to the contrary. When you deny the reality of global warming you are indeed acting like a teenager.

  2. I think someone has a touch too much of the funny stuff and fried their brain cells. What majority of scientists? There are very few and more leave that platform constantly including the UN’s official scientist who now claims we have reached a level of stable temperatures that will last for years. Since we still are belching carbon like crazy, how do you explain that? Ever heard of sunspots?

    Of course the majority of scientists think we come from something that climbed out of the primordial muck, so I don’t really care what most of them say anyway.

  3. Well, we are probably at an impasse then. If you don’t believe in evolution – for which there is FAR more evidence than for global warming – then I suspect I am not going to be able to convince you of much of anything.

    I will note that 75 of 77 climatologists polled in a recent survey believed that human activity was a major contributor to warming trends. In a broader survey including other scientific specialties fully 82 percent believed that human activity was behind climate change. That is indeed what I can consensus.

    Take it or leave it. I can guarantee that our children will one day hate us if we continue to ignore the data – the world we pass on to them will not be very livable.

  4. aah…the new religion – climate change absolutism. How amazing to watch this quasi-religion fill the vacuum of organized religion and as it does so, any reasonable questioning of its mantra becdomes regarded as a form of blasphemy. It provides the pretext for the agenda of economical, technological, and industrial de-development of the United States paving the way for a new global statist ideology which will subsequently provide the means for a few to have total control over the masses. Even if those who want to be in control of things are able to accomplish this goal, they and their minions will not be able to stop what is really happening. This is something that “they” do not really want us to know.

    If people only knew the real truth about global climate change. If they were allowed to look at the issue objectively, the truth would become as obvious as that star which appears in the east each and every morning – our sun. It’s something over which we really don’t have any control or influence.

    Mister hippie, get with it, man. The majority of the scientists have not climbed aboard the man-caused global warming bandwagon. It’s just the opposite. It’s a minority of them who subscribe to and perpetuate this myth.

    John – I am basing my view on this recent survey (and others – but this is the most recent):

    I am curious where your “minority” claim comes from.

  6. hippieprof , I suppose we could bicker and banter over the meaning of “minority” but I’m certain that if you looked for it you can delve that as easily as I from the same sources available to me, the internet, books, publications, common sense, free and unfettered thought, etc. I doubt that this forum is ideally suited for considering the preponderance of what is certain to be a mountain of scientific evidence purported to support both sides of the debate. And a debate it still is, despite the assertion by anthropogenic global warming theory enthusiasts that it has been proven beyond reasonable doubt.

    I find it more enlightening to take it a step further and honestly consider what we mean by “consensus” and theory as opposed to conclusively proven fact.

    One of the many things which bother me about the AGW theory and the radical agenda proposed by its priests and adherents is the inherent implication that humans can control nature to such an extent.
