Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
FYI the director of NREL blames the lab's funding problems on the recently enhanced practice by Congress of "earmarking" funds for state-specific projects, not under scientific review. This is done by both Democrats and Republicans, and is a significant problem with the current funding mechanism.

Democratic Senator Harry Reid and the $33 million in funds Reid got earmarked for Nevada's own alternative energy projects is being particularly singled out in this case.
