California’s farms and vineyards could vanish by the end of the century, and its major cities could be in jeopardy, if Americans do not act to slow the advance of global warming, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu said Tuesday.
This fellow is obviously a friend of Al Gore. Smart guy, apparently, but not an environmentalist; hell, not even an amater weather observer, far as I can tell.
In his first interview since taking office last month, the Nobel-prize-winning physicist offered some of the starkest comments yet
Chu is not a climate scientist. He won his Nobel for work trapping atoms with laser light. He taught at Stanford University and directed the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where he reoriented researchers to pursue “clean energy” technologies to help reduce the use of greenhouse-gas-emitting fossil fuels in the U.S., before Obama tapped him to head the Energy Department.
Okay, so he has all the same credentials as Al… nothing to do with the climate, a Nobel prize, and a habit of spouting off on a topic he’s ill-equipped to address. Move along, nothing new to see here.
