Historien om hvordan kom olien til Alaska

Dette er topmålet af et dumt spørgsmål stillet af en politiker. Republikaneren Joe Barton fra Texas stiller energiminister Steven Chu dumme spørgsmål under en energihøring. Du kan se/høre alt dette i videoen.


Hvad værre er, at republikaneren Joe Barton bagefter twitter om det. Hvor han skriver, at der fik han vel nok skovlen under energiminister Steven Chu. øh nej, du er blevet til grin over hele verden i stedet for.

ha ha - der fik jeg dig

Transcript af dialogen fra video.

BARTON: Dr. Chu, I don’t want to leave you out. You’re our scientist. I have one simple question for you in the last six seconds. How did all the oil and gas get to Alaska and into the Arctic Ocean?

CHU: (Laughter.) This is a complicated story but oil and gas is the result of hundreds of millions of years of geology and in that time also the plates have moved around. And so, it’s a combination of where the sources of the oil and gas …

BARTON: Isn’t it obvious that at one time it was a lot warmer in Alaska and on the North Pole? It wasn’t a big pipeline that we’ve created from Texas and shipped it up there and put it under ground so we can now pump it up?

CHU: No, there are continental plates that have been drifting around throughout the geological ages.

BARTON: So it just drifted up there.

CHU: Uh…. That’s certainly what happened. It’s a result of things like that.

WAXMAN: The gentleman’s time has expired.
