    I don't believe Carter was a real engineer. He served on a nuclear submarine as an "engineer" which is completely different.

    And... .his "engineering" was over 20 years before he became President.

    do you mean continental shelf? I doubt pelosi has the power to block drilling off the entire continent.

    or can you source your claim?

    FYI, I am a trained nuclear power plant operator, and an old car enthusiast. I don't go for horsepower, that is a waste of fuel.
    My vehicles get above average mpg, because I know how to drive to get better mpg.

    WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday ruled out a vote on new offshore oil drilling even as Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said he might be open to a compromise that included it.

    The scramble over expanded drilling off America's coasts — ammunition for a weekend of rat-a-tat-tat by the presidential campaigns — underscores the political power of $4-a-gallon gas. Though President Bush and other backers of new drilling acknowledge it wouldn't directly affect gas prices for years, they have pounded Democrats for opposing the measure, which is now supported by most Americans.

    OK, now I know you don't know squat.....about nukes or engineers.
    What is YOUR degree in?
    The principles of engineering haven't changed much since Archimedes. THe laws of physics haven't either.
    I served on a nuclear sub, as an operator. Nuclear power school is hard, some of our dropouts started with 2 years of civilian college behind them.

    Duh, that's when she blocked Bush's proposal to drill offshore. Do you think Bush is still President??

    If he doesn't have an engineering degree and is registered as a P.E., he's not an engineer in anything.

    P.S.: I have an engineering degree.

    There is no reason for this BS since there is no shortage and it looks very much like there won't be one. This is pure price gouging straight up.

    fair enough, but your fantasies do not extend more than a few feet outside your own fulminations

    ie, progressive energy policies are kaput in contemporary politics

    sorry
