It will be interesting times at the labs. Could hurt some of the "science" fringe doing BES energy research, putting shrimp on treadmills and measuring penis dimension statistics. But he could also double down on nuclear modernization and WFO work.

Care to provide example of this? Or, since we got Trump; this is what we will have to deal with? Just throw some stuff devoid of facts out and wait for the response?
Here comes my response: There are still some people left in this country who believe in facts, and so my question stands:
Give examples of this .

"The Donald" is the only President with enough sense to know that the stockpile cannot be "modernized" to keep up with Russia and China without nuclear testing. And, he is the only Presidential choice that has the guts to go against world opinion and return to underground testing. The present moratorium on testing was foisted off under the guise of preventing proliferation; Pakistan, India, North Korea, and Iran have proven it to be a complete failure for that Pollyanna goal. I sure hope that those in charge of the Readiness Program aren't asleep at the switch!!

What a crock! Since you have never heard Trump say any of those things, you are just projecting your wishes, Good luck with that, Mary Poppins. No one, not even Trump, knows what Trump will do.

It won't mean anything. Hamm is being brought in to deal with some specific energy issues, which is a small part of DOE's budget. He'll be as befuddled as every other outsider who finds themselves sitting on the nuclear weapons morass. The talk will change, but the facts on the ground will remain the same.

Nobody cares about the weapons complex. We have weapons so we have to have some kind of weapons complex. They just want it to limp along and not hear about it.

True, but how is this different than any other DOE head, you can bash Obama all you want but Monez and Chu had some clue.

Ok some comparisons

Bill Richardson, hmm that worked out well.

Federico Peña, a lawyer ?

Hazel R. O'Leary, ...of f*ck that sucked.

James D. Watkins, ok knows something

John S. Herrington, another lawyer, great

Donald P. Hodel, lawyer but had a clue

James B. Edwards, wow a dentist but he at least he had the decency to die.

Charles Duncan Jr. a bad cup of coffee anyone?


Rod Blagojevich, expected to be the head of DOE.

So Hamm fits it just as nicely as anyone else.

Chu was the moron who recommended that we paint our roofs white to counter global warming. No kidding. Chu also wasted billions on "green" energy, remember Solyndra? Solyndra was just the tip of the iceberg.

Moniz was the moron who got duped by Iran.

Shows real class calling anyone you do not agree with a moron.

Contrary to you Chu has a Nobel price, Moniz is a world renowned physicist.

The Nobel prize (not price) committee has already established that they will give their prize to anyone who follows their agenda whether that person deserves the prize or not. Irrespective, anyone (Chu) who tells everyone to paint their roofs white IS a moron. You probably don't see it this way because you don't know why telling everyone to paint their roof white is a stupid idea.

Likewise, any American (Moniz) who forges an agreement with Iran that shuts all Americans out of Iran inspections IS a moron.

Thanks for pointing out the spelling mistake. My fault.

The rest of the message is still the same. Calling people you disagree with morons
is actually more an indication of a lack of arguments than serious knowledge.

So, having established this, I will leave it at this and let you continue to be bitter.

My only hope is that one day, you will realize that democracy and scientific discourse are based on mutual respect and honest discussions, and not on slogans and name calling.

I still wish you a wonderful day.

Sorry Nov. 17, you fail. The name calling was deserved because of Chu and Moniz's extremely poor performance. I gave reasons why anyone can see that their performance was at or below the moron level (paint your roof white, invest in "green" companies that are sure to go bankrupt, block Americans from inspecting Iran). YOU were the one who had no arguments to refute.
