[youtube]<br><!-- --><br>In the clip above you'll see Energy Secretary and Nobel Laureate Steven Chu attempt to address Texas Representative Joe Barton's question as to how oil got to Alaska and the North Pole. Chu seems baffled at having to address Barton's theory-which I think is that the oil was created because it used to be warm in Alaska?-leaving Barton with a grossly smug look on his face. "I just bested a Nobel Laureate," he seems to be thinking. "Me. Joe Barton. I know more about science that ol' Steven Chu." In fact, Joe Barton, your question was too ill informed to even answer.Via TPM
