DDI 08 KO Gonzales Pelosi is indifferent Pelosi agrees that nuclear power has to “be on the table” (Maya Jackson Randall 2-8-07 “Pelosi Reconsiders Nuclear Power” http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2007/02/08/pelosi-reconsiders-nuclear-power/ ) “The technology has changed, and I bring a more open mind to that subject now,” she said at a House Science and Technology Committee hearing. Legislation to mitigate global warming is a priority for the California Democrat, and nuclear power - touted as an emissions-free way to generate electricity — is gaining traction as a way to improve the environment while meeting the nation’s growing demands for power. “I have a different view on nuclear than I did 20 years ago,” Pelosi said, adding that her change of heart doesn’t amount to an embrace. “I would not … be an active opponent. I think it has to be on the table.” 2

DDI 08 KO Gonzales Candidates Support McCain and Obama both support nuclear power incentives. (Richard Simon 4-9-07 “Pelosi, Clinton, Obama Favor More Nuclear Plants” Los Angeles Times http://www.commondreams.org/archive/2007/04/09/399/ ) Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) - all presidential candidates - support legislation that would cap greenhouse gas emissions and provide incentives to power companies to build more nuclear plants . 3

DDI 08 KO Gonzales Oil causes recession Oil will cause a world wide recession. (Ian Talley and John M. Biers 5-29-07 “Prepare for Peak Oil, GAO Warns” http://blogs.wsj.com/environmentalcapital/2007/03/29/prepare-for-peak-oil-gao-warns/ ) Though there is a great deal of uncertainty about the timing of peak oil , in part because OPEC members don’t open up their crude reserves for independent audit, the U.S. would be one of the hardest hit by a such a peak due to the nation’s dependency on oil for transportation, according to the GAO. Compared with past price spikes, “the consequences of a peak and permanent decline in oil production could be even more prolonged and severe than those of past oil supply shocks,” the GAO said. One reason is that the decline “would be neither temporary nor reversible,” said the report, which cited a “worldwide recession” as a possible outcome.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
