His mind is so open - so open that ideas simply pass through it.

Energy Secretary Chu is a myth waiting to be told. Chu has jumped on board the energy efficiency bandwagon. According to the latest department of Energy PR/Green propaganda spin
Improving energy saving and energy efficiency is one of the quickest, greenest, and most cost-effective ways to address energy security and climate change, and ensure economic growth.This line is out of the Amory Lovins book of stories. Where is the proof? Well there is none, but
Secretary Chu has challenged Department of Energy researchers to help develop building designs that are far more efficient than current designs – and wants to pursue further research partnerships through IPEEC. The International Panel on Climate Change reported in 2007 that the world could reduce projected greenhouse gas emissions from the building sector by 30 percent by 2030 while producing a net economic benefit.So we have goals that involved the implementation of undeveloped and unproven technology on a massive scale at a vast cost by 2030. This is the same Energy Secretary Chu who recently told us how problems solved by ORNL scientists during the 1970's somehow still impede the development of the LFTR in 2009. This is the same Steven Chu who recently told Senator Alexander that we could not possibly develop the industrial infrastructure to build 100 reactors by 2030, or to train their operators by that date.
has so little confidence in American science and technology that he doubts our capacity to do anything but improve builfing efficiency.
