Thoughts on Environmental Economics

FutureGen quote of the day

Posted by Evan Herrnstadt on May 5, 2008

Sen Kit Bond (R-MO) compared DOE’s change of heart to leaving the project “at the altar choosing three younger, cheaper women.”

Wow. The Energy and Water Appropriations Subcommittee is having a hearing on FutureGen this week. The witnesses are Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman and FutureGen Chairman Paul Thompson. I think this quote indicates that it’s going to be nothing if not entertaining — stay tuned for a first-hand account.

For interested DC readers, the hearing is Thursday at 9:30am at 192 Dirksen Senate Building.

H/T: Shalini.
