Exactly. Our values are screwed up. Why do all the hard work (that frankly only some have the intellectual capacity to do), get made fun of, get taken advantage of, get a paltry salary when you could do nothing for the GDP and make millions of dollars. I mean come on Obama, you wanna screw up the engineers more? We have plenty of engineers. They are just not valued.

Submission + - Obama: "We don't have enough engineers' (computerworld.com)

dcblogs writes: President Obama wants to boost engineering graduation rates by 10,000 a year. In 2009, the U.S. produced 126,194 engineering graduates for bachelor's and master's degrees and for Ph.D.s. The U.S. had just over 1.9 million engineers in 2010. The unemployment rate in 2010 for all engineers was 4.5%. "We've made incredible progress on education, helping students to finance their college educations, but we still don't have enough engineers," said Obama. He's counting on the private sector to help expand the number of graduates.

ABSOLUTELY CORRECT -- too bad Anonymous Coward did not reveal him/herself. Pure genius and tremendous insight. Before you start using your bias (e.g. global warming is a myth) to make a sound judgment, understand sensors and their limitations. I have sold "bad" $400 sensors to auto crash testers who want consistent performance, rather than improved performance (at much lower cost) where they cannot tell subtle differences in data collected year from year.
