    * He implemented tough new efficiency standards for automobiles, appliances and consumer electronics."

    LOL! 2010 was before the GOP began their new attack on the middle class and the elderly. They played their hand to soon, thankfully!

    Do you know why he said that? He said that if we aren't paying that much people won't get their head out of the sand and actually do something to address the long term issues of our energy demand. The longer gas stays cheaper than other fuels, the harder and more painful the transition will be.

    Drilling is not a long term solution to the entire problem of energy demands.

    Ignore globally warming for now, because it doesn't matter in this debate. China, India, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and ex-soviet state are quickly modernizing. Their demand for oil is more fierce than ours (we've actually lowered our demand) because these modernizing countries do not have the tech or infrastructure to support other fuels to keep their economies growing without more oil. Thus, global demand is raising faster than ever before.

    This means, even if all peak 9all oil) US oil production is reached, the inevitable is only delayed for, at most, about 10 years, then we are exactly back were we are right now and NOT any better off for it. In fact, we are worse off because we would drain our reserves while destroying arable land for years.

    Any country that drills for oil without also investing in smarter energy is woefully short sighted.

    We know, we were warned in 2001 and in March of last year:

    "As it is, national solutions alone cannot work. Politicians still speak of U.S. energy independence,

    while the United States is importing more than half of its oil supplies and may soon for the first time

    become reliant on sources outside North America for substantial amounts of natural gas."

    "The US military has warned that surplus oil production capacity could disappear within two years and there could be serious shortages by 2015 with a significant economic and political impact."

    If all the voters were idiots and ignored that we went to war over oil in Iraq, and if they ignored all the world's experts and their eyes at the gas pumps that we are approaching the end of cheap oil, your plan might work.

    Personally, I don't think voters are that stupid.

    Yep, the first scientist to ever hold the position!



    "Chu is a scientist extraordinaire: Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley; experience in academia, the private sector, and government; and winner of the 1997 Nobel Prize in Physics (for developing "methods to cool and trap atoms with laser light"). Sounds like he might actually be qualified for the post. How did that happen?"
