I'm honestly not trying to piss anyone off, and surely wouldn't suggest you're not what you say you are....but...

You appreciate that your experience supports my argument.  A degree does actually an engineer make.  

Your book might read a bit differently if you were the one with the degree.  

I absolutely appreciate that you might not be as good at your job today without the experiences you've accumulated, but the world we live in likes structures it can qualify/quantify, especially if those structures create exclu$ivity.

I am gonna have to weigh in on this  as it is a subject that peeves me. I have had the title of Engineer in my job titles like forever and no, I have no degree.

licenses are key to all aspects including design, review, inspection, insurance, etc.
i don't think musk has an degree in engineering or a pe license
his title is chief engineer and perhaps i should have thrown that in
and i doubt that he has ever driven a locomotive
he has formal training in economics and physics and there is probably quite a bit of overlap there 
(between engineering and physics, esp rocket/aerospace engineering)
his residency, field or on the job training has been twenty years at spacex 
and maybe another 15 or so at tesla 
i'm certain he has hired and worked with quite a few engineers and has a very good understanding of what everyone is doing
and/or takes to make things fly
regarding engineering: i do think it is safe to say that by now he knows wtf he's talking about

original post was to point out that his mission is to electrify the planet
climate change was a huge driver/reason for this

Those degrees from Penn are impressive, but Physics is not Engineering.  He's not an Engineer.

I found the successful Thermonuclear fusion  experiment a nice bit of positive news. Hope it isn't just a blip and they can find a way to recreate it and bring it to scale one day.
