Remember, the U.S. government is flat broke.
Apparently, Steven Chu and the Department of Energy need a $97 million super computer to understand that windmills and solar panels don’t generate electricity when the wind isn’t blowing or sun isn’t shining.
And when they aren’t studying windmills, they are going to study ‘global warming.’
The dizzying computing power will be used to simulate complex models of climate change and analyzing nuclear reactions and alternative energies, and developing the next generation of materials used to manufacture U.S. goods.
I’m all for technology, but wasting this kind of money to simulate something that isn’t happening or modeling windmills is the height of irresponsibility.
How can the entire world be warming except for my back yard?
