    So, do you think the "champion of the environment" is going to be a good thing for energy exploration?

    I guess if you want to throw $Billions at the wind fantasy or solar.

    I don't foresee him helping with nuclear expansion, drilling expansion, natural gas expasion.

    All I got out of that article is that cap-n-trade is coming our way.

    Not just cap & trade:

    "Obama has promised to spend $15 billion a year to help private industry develop clean energy technology and to institute a cap-and-trade system to reduce emissions 80 percent by 2050."

    I'm not a fan of Obama, or any tax & spend democrat for that matter. But, I'm willing to put up with that in order to get a sane energy policy in place.

    Besides, it's not like the Republicans have done us any favors these past 8 years...
