Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
According to Grenn Car Congress's article, Bush's 'program' represents only a 22% increase in funding for existing federal energy research schemes.

Bush's new program has a shiny name, Advanced Energy Initiative which alone should convince the populace that well-connected, Republican-friendly large corporations can expect free money for nothing.

File it away in the trash along with No Child Left Behind, Blue Skies Initiative, Healthy Forests Initiative, etc.
