We have to warn you that just reading this comment will cause your IQ to drop several points and it will be necessary for you to rescue your intellectual capabilities before they are permanently damaged so we will be providing several links at the end of this post that you should click on before your brain has too much of a chance to process what you are about to read. In fact, you may want to click on those links now and have the tabs open to get to that much faster so we'll put them here:
Link number 1 to restore your rational faculties
Link number 2 to reconnect you to reality
Link number 3 to remind you that the world has not been overrun by arrogantly ignorant, lumpy bags of protoplasmic effluent two steps short of sentience.
And link number 4 just to get the image of those words out of your visual cortex.
OK, now, if there are children in the room, please make sure they can't see the screen, or better yet send them off to read a book. Sit comfortably in your chair, loosen any clothing that might become constrictive in the event of a seizure and make sure there are no sharp implements nearby with which you might gouge out your eyes in a moment of panic.
Before we go on you should know this comment was made by representative Joe Barton and we are in no way making it up, or altering it in any manner. It comes to you just as it came out of his mouth.
Those of you familiar with Joe Barton will probably want to stop reading here as prolonged exposure to weapons grade idiocy can lead to chronic incredulity, memory loss, and reduced joie de vivre.
OK. Here we go:
"Wouldn't it be ironic if in the interest of global warming we mandated massive switches to [wind] energy, which is a finite resource, which slows the winds down, which causes the temperature to go up?...It's just something to think about."May god have mercy on us all.
