Quote of the day, from our Energy Secretary

AlphaNinja - Oh lordy, do I have some strong language I'd like to use here.....

Today the US Energy Secretary - who by the way, hates energy - has some thoughts for us silly teenagers:

“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.”

So if American families are against cap and trade's potential $1700 annual hit to them, and against higher fuel and electricity prices that will come from new environmental policies, then they're simply acting like teenagers. Granted, for lower-income Americans that will mean taking on a new second job for one parent and a lower quality of life - but your "parent," secretary Chu, knows what's best. GFY, pal.
