Today Obama named Dr. Stephen Chu of Livermore National Lab to be Secretary of Energy. This is a high profile guy who will probably just do what he is told. More important is that he appointed Carol Browner, Al Gore's buddy, as number 2. Her job will be to get his regulatory program through Congress. This is very bad news, and means opposition to drilling for oil and gas, not only off-shore, but everywhere. It signals that he meant it when he talked about destroying the coal industry. I feel certain that will be her goal, regardless of what they say. She wants to stop using fossil fuel altogether, and seems unconcerned about what that does to the economy. She is a regulatory freak, and wants the government to control everything. I vote Republican in hopes of keeping Carol Browner out of the government.
