    Default Energy Secretary says America must become poorer

    So the poor elsewhere in the world can become richer. Is this that "ardent free market" advocacy Obama is clucking about?

    U.S. energy secretary Steven Chu said Wednesday that the U.S. must decrease its energy use to allow developing nations the room to grow, while emphasizing that prosperity doesn't have to come with a large carbon footprint.

    "We believe we have to decrease our use of energy to allow headroom for the developing nations to grow their economies," Chu said in a speech in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates.

    "There is no law of physics that says prosperity is proportional to carbon emissions," Chu said.
    Really, name a prosperous nation that has become so without carbon emissions?

    Gee, I wonder if there is a law of physics that says, "One nations prosperity is dependent upon another nation reducing it's carbon emissions"?
    What an idiot.
