Rep. Henry Waxman, aka Bat Boy, is frustrated that the public isn’t taking the bait on the global warming sham:

The top Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Wednesday urged Energy Secretary Steven Chu to launch a national climate-change-education campaign.

Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), in a letter to Chu, said the public’s understanding of climate change is “diminishing” in part because there are “powerful vested interests in the oil and coal industries successfully fanning disbelief.”

Well, that and the public reads stuff like this that fans disbelief even more. But I digress…

“I ask you to investigate the disconnect that appears to be growing between the scientific and the public understanding of climate change,” Waxman said. “I hope you will then decide to lead a national effort to ensure the public is fully and accurately informed about the science of climate change and its implications for human health and welfare.”

Waxman’s approach to this “investigation” uses the same style of “science” that Al Gore & Company employ: Global warmists say we’re all going to die — the public disagrees — so to find out the truth we need to investigate why the public is wrong.

    Chicken Little: the public’s understanding that the sky is falling is “diminishing” in part because there are people that know that the sky is not falling successfully fanning disbelief.”

    The "Nostrildumbass" is earning my nick-names for him. The cat has been out of the bag for a long time, Waxbrain, give it up ! The evidence has NEVER been on your side !

    You have a job as a carpenter waiting for you Doug, you nailed another one !

    Yes, we need to have our dirty, denying brains washed by the Progressive establishment about, not just climate destruction, but our opposition to others things that are vital to our survival such as increased government spendi…,er investing in the future, and raising tax…, um. enhancing government revenues, and sassing our betters, and the list goes on and on…

    Right, and so much of this obsessing over Climate this or that really was a natural extension of the Wealth Effect. Americans felt guilty what w/ their 401k's going up by the day ( followed later by their homes )

    Everything was going so well! We needed a "wall of worry to climb!" Now that those of us that have managed to KEEP our jobs ( are supporting the family members that DIDN'T ) there's no time OR money to fret over imaginary "issues".

    It all died. Too bad Henry didn't get the memo.

    Sorry – how can I take that man seriously when I think I saw a "Wanted" poster with his mug on it. I believe the charge was child molestation. He gives me the absolute creeps!!!

    Ol' Filthy Nostril Boy is babbling bullshit once again, eh?

    "Global warmists say we’re all going to die — the public disagrees — so to find out the truth we need to investigate why the public is wrong."

    Right, b/c we're all total idiots incapable of thinking for ourselves so clearly something must be done to bring us back into the fold?

    Wrong cause at the wrong TIME Waxy. The avg. American doesn't have the luxury of even entertaining this BS any more. Forget deciding on whether or not they can afford 'cable' any more, they're weighing the risks of driving w/o INSURANCE!

    How insulting.

    "Internet Explorer users have lower IQs"; This has been a public service announcement from the Mozilla Firefox Fund" ( From Doug's sidebar )

    This according to PC World. Whatever. Most corp. applications are built around IE and where do they rank all of us that have TRIED Mozilla blah blah only to have it crash or be unable to open certain applications?

    But… but… it's great for graphics, gaming and ____. Yes, and when I become a graphic designer that will come in oh so handy. Most of us aren't wild about IE but I've tried the others and didn't notice any kind of "quantum leap".

    Put this under "Liberals are better read than most conservatives" done under equally 'scientific' measures. How many years did we let them get away with that bs?

    Saw a connected story at Weasel Zippers today with this and that claim of browser crappiness / superiority. I had few issues w/ IE-8 but many w/ IE-9; didn`t notice the (beta) next to it. Switched to FireFox on recommendation of Zilla and my `puter whiz nephew. Few issues really with it. Don`t have the nerve to try other browsers since every change / update comes with "favorites" loses / password forgetfulness. 😉

    Gotta give more intense brainwashing a try before those who do not agree with the "science" of anthropogenic global warming undergo the usal labeling after the pinko *argument* (i.e., histrionics) fails to *enlighten*: 1) ignorant;
    2) rebels; 3) capitalists (a dirty word in the liberal lexicon); 4) terrorists;
    5) murderers, et al, ad infinitum.
