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.
