NY Times reviews energy R&D funding

and it aint good. here.
check this out:

President Bush has sought an increase to $4.2 billion for 2007, but that would still be a small fraction of what most climate and energy experts say would be needed.

Federal spending on medical research, by contrast, has nearly quadrupled, to $28 billion annually, since 1979. Military research has increased 260 percent, and at more than $75 billion a year is 20 times the amount spent on energy research.

certainly looks like getting a new hip takes precendence over where your grandkids get to live (unless of course you're just planning on building enough bombs to just live wherever you damn well please)...
