Local Meteorologist Kevin Williams Took On
U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu

U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu

Apparently U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu spoke at a local university, this past October. And Rochester's very own, meteorologist Kevin Williams was right on top of things.


The following excerpts are from an article that meteorologist  Kevin Williams wrote for The Daily Record on October 29, 2009.

Excerpt 1: In his Rochester address, Chu said anyone is entitled to his or her own opinion on climate change, but not to his or her own facts.

Excerpt 2: Given that the Earth’s average temperature actually has fallen slightly since 1998, defying all global climate models, makes one wonder who is trying to “own” the facts?

Excerpt 3: Regardless, in Rochester Chu suggested we all need to drive smaller cars and paint our roofs white in order to stop global warming. The theory is that white roofs would reflect sunlight and small cars would reduce the burning of fossil fuels.

Excerpt 4: That made me wonder. In the 1970s, when a new ice age was predicted by current global warming alarmist and Stanford professor Steve Schneider — and many others — would Chu have recommended we all drive massive trucks and paint our roofs black to stave off the coming chill?
