I'm really glad Al didn't win.

I think the price of hydrocarbon related energy is going to take us to nuclear and Algore
will get his dreams fulfilled but not for his reasons.

Al doesn't talk about nuclear at all.

Nor can the transition take only ten years. Even if we had the plans
for the perfect energy source in hand today, it would take decades to
accomplish the transition.

Yeah, we probably wouldn't be having the booming good times like we are now

Every time I turn around the Environmental extremists have missed the facts
and chosen wrongly.

They are years behind the ball and have no idea valid in the proper time.

They are never willing to provide answers just demands.

They are never willing to live under the extreme lifestyles they demand.

They cost our lives with stupid things like 5 MPH bumpers to drop weight.

They continue to chant change - but don't provide a solution that is possible.

Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word
itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words -
"mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's
why so is mankind.

What could he have done that could have ended worse than what we have?
I'm sure he would have tried

Probably true, but you have to acknowledge that some folks are just better
than others. When it comes to messing things up Bush has shown to have no
peer. It's very unlikely that any of the other potential presidents could
have done a better, more thorough job of bungling. Could Gore have matched
Bush? No way. He just doesn't have that kind of talent.

Speaking of which...

Years ago, there was an old tale in the Marine Corps about a
lieutenant who inspected his Marines and told the 'Gunny' that they
smelled bad.

The lieutenant suggested that they change their underwear. The Gunny
responded, 'Aye, aye, sir, I'll see to it immediately'.

He went into the tent and said, 'The lieutenant thinks you guys smell
bad, and wants you to change your underwear. Smith, you change with
Jones, McCarthy, you change with Witkowskie, Brown, you change with
Schultz. Get to it'.

The moral:

A candidate may promise change in Washington but don't count on
things smelling any better.

Nice story. But you have a better chance of a change with someone that has
promised to make changes than with someone who's agenda is to stay the
course.

Yes, just permitting electric transmission lines could take a decade.


Hard to believe they had people working in the pentagon 11 months after the start of
contruction.

Well, I wasn't worrying about this kind of stuff at all.

We already have a system of energy sources, built out to the scale
needed to power Civilization. Physical replacement of those existing
systems would take many decades, more likely a century.

That's unless they were really, really serious about making the changes.
Then it could be done faster than you would believe. It only took a year to
build the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge. It's all a
matter of how desperate you are to make the changes. We ain't desperate
enough yet.

Golden Gate Bridge - Just over four years. Construction commenced on
January 5, 1933 and the Bridge was open to vehicular traffic on May 28,
1937.

Empire State Building - The building was actually completed ahead of
schedule, taking only one year and 45 days to build.

both have ample metal to almost be on topic.
