OKAY, I COULDN’T RESIST THE AIRPLANE REFERENCE BELOW, but I have to point out a more positive item from the same story:

The Speaker also answered an inquiry from Rep. Frank Lucas (R-OK) on nuclear energy by saying that while she was once opposed to nuclear energy, changing technology had made her “bring a more open mind” to the option.

“It has to be on the table,” she said.

I think that if you’re serious about global warming or energy independence — much less both — it absolutely does have to be on the table. I’m glad to see Pelosi recognize that.
