Joe Barton: Before the Dick Pics, Great Moments in Ignorance, Denial, and Hypocrisy

November 23, 2017

We’ve all done stupid things, occasionally we’ve all been hypocritical, and we’re all ignorant about something.
But people like Joe Barton, whose recently released, uhm…, let’s say, nude self portrait has become famous – has made a career of stupidity, ignorance, and hypocrisy.
Nice work if you can get it, I guess, but for the rest of us, there is science, fact, data, and hard won truth.

Mike Mann, the Climate scientist who has most famously been a target of Rep. Barton, has richly earned the right to be feeling a little bit of schadenfreude at this moment.

It was Joe Barton who was behind a shoddy attack on the National Academy of Science’s 2006 report affirming global warming – an attack that fell apart after being exposes as a third rate, plagiarized hash of nonsense and fakery.

Below, more great moments in Greed and Stupidity, including Barton’s infamous apology to British Petroleum, after the Federal Government penalized the the Oil Giant following the catastrophic 2010 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill, and a stunning revelation from the Bible.


From 2004, the clip below is from the ABC documentary “Tobacco File”,  Peter Jennings interviewed Barton about his work on behalf of the tobacco industry. This was shortly before long-time smoker Jenning’s death from lung cancer.

Finally, here we have Mr. Barton, asserting that the story of Noah’s Flood falsifies the science of atmospheric physics.

  1. Actually, *any* picture of Joe Barton can be considered a “dick pic”.

  2. Jerry Falwel Says:

    How is that different than the Kardashians who manage to post a nude selfie, once a week and twice on Sunday? Those actions have made the Kardashians rich and famous and the talk of the town. Maybe that is what this guy is looking for. I do admit the Kardashians look better but that may just be my bad eyesight.
