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.
