In today’s Wall Street Journal, we find out what the Secretary of Energy really thinks of US citizens:

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.

“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.”

The sheer arrogance and hubris of this Administration never ceases to astound me.

Oh, and also, as they are also also proposing to politicise the classroom and brainwash school-children: "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." 

Tax dollars spent to promote a political agenda to schoolchildren. That’s change you can believe in.
