I just read “Biomedicine, defense to sidestep budget ax.” Now, I know that George Bush owes his rich cronies a ton of money and favors, but a 10-year program to develop clean energy from coal? Why spend 20 years developing energy from coal, which will run out just like oil will and the mining of which pollutes and destroys the environment worse than oil? We need research into a renewable energy source, but Bush cuts that research. Dawn Rouse
