Apparently his purpose in this line of gradeschool questioning was to expose that even a Nobel Prize winner admits that Alaska was warmer once.

Apparently his purpose in 'exposing' this fact was to show that the planet has ages ago gone through cycles of extreme temperature.

Apparently this means that not only shouldn't we be concerned about human impact on global warming, but we shouldn't be worried about climate change at all.

...I'm not following either.
Syd Midnight - 2009-04-23
I think his logic is that you only find oil in places that are warm, so finding oil in Alaska proves the North Pole was once warm, so global warming is a good and natural thing.

"What? Witchery?"

"No, the ah-- the tectonic plates--"

"Witchcraft? Did I hear witchcraft?"
Cap'n Profan!ty - 2009-04-23
he does not believe in plate tectonics.

he thinks this is a brilliant stance.

holy fucking christ.

Doctor Arcane - 2009-04-23
Dude, the earth is expanding. There are no plates! Also, hollow. And filled with demons.

Can we pay Mexico to take Texas back?

What if we said please?

Camonk - 2009-04-23
Even if the national debt became a national surplus of the same amount, we wouldn't be able to pay Mexico's price for that particular service.

RomancingTrain - 2009-04-23
He thinks the oil came from Texas. My god, they actually think all the oil in Arabian soil is their oil.

That mentality is really dragging the Republican party down. We need the fundie vote, but it simultaneously scares away some moderates.

Cap'n Profan!ty - 2009-04-23
You need the fundie vote. You don't see the problem with that, beyond simply "alienating some moderates?"

Cena_mark - 2009-04-23
Problems beyond that is that we have to constantly pander to the fundies. That's how Palin got the VP nom.

Modern Angel - 2009-04-23
No, he means you cannot fucking win without 80% of Fundies coming out to comprise 40% of your fucking vote, you retard.


The fundies are going to ensure you don't win an election for awhile. But the delicious part is that you lose by EVEN MORE if they disappear because all of your other policies are just as odious.

Four years ago I would have taken this as proof how fucked we are.

Now I'd like to see this as proof how fucked they are.

Maybe we're both fucked.

Or maybe fucked x2 cancels each other out and there is hope for us all.

The world must seem so much simpler when you are that stupid
Sean Robinson - 2009-04-23
I dream of a world whereupon Barton interrupted and protested Chu's suggestion of a time-span longer than 6000 years.
revdrew - 2009-04-23
That's what I was expecting, but this is still pretty awesome.

I just want to re-iterate for everyone in case their mind refused to absorb it the first time. The representative in this video, Joe Barton, uploaded said video, which you have just seen. Because he is proud of it.

Think about that.
ProfessorChaos - 2009-04-23
That made me shudder.

mashedtater - 2009-04-23
yes, he totally burned dr. chu.

well, no. no he didn't.

"Energy Secretary puzzled by simple question: When Rep. Joe Barton asked the Nobel Prize winning Energy Secretary, Dr. Steven Chu, where oil comes from - he got a puzzling answer."
I am dumbfounded.

spikestoyiu - 2009-04-23
Dr. Chu, your face just called. Soccer practice is over and you need to PICK IT UP.

phalsebob - 2009-05-20
Knuckles, you are saying words that don't make sense. I don't know what you are saying, but somehow they frighten me.

Dear Texas:

Secede, you bundle of cow-wrangling yeehaw pussy farts. Do it. Do it already.
Menudo con queso - 2009-04-23
El Paso can join New Mexico before Texas goes, and we can airlift Austin there (minus the everyone in the statehouse). Then the wall goes up.

Camonk - 2009-04-23
Can we leave out the self righteous hippies?

You guys romanticize Austin. Austin is not very good. I'd take a lot of the restaurants from 6th Street and from San Antonio, though.

Well ding dang, ya'll! Ol' slantey eyes here thinks the earth has PLATES that MOVE THE OIL!! Well if'n that's true, then how come the lava don't catch that oil on fire?
Wombles - 2009-05-05
I was going to do this, but probably not as well.

Herr Matthias - 2009-04-23
Barton is technically correct. He asked Chu to give him a complete high school, bachelor's, and master's-level education on geology to someone with an apparent 8th grade understanding of science in less than 30 seconds. Ergo, baffling him.

I'm puzzled too, mostly about how this guy manages to put his pants on the right way in the morning. Does he think rain is made from God's tears?

My jaw has fallen.

I just can't believe our elected officials could be this dumb. I won't. I'm plugging my ears and shutting my eyes and going LALALALALALA.
