I may have accidentally discovered one reason why this country is not taking the lead in developing alternative energy. According to a report called: Millennium Project Papers, a National Academy of Sciences study suggested a blueprint that addresses many of the concerns globalization. The report titled: Allocating Federal Funds for Science and Technology stated that the nation should strive to be the absolute leader in areas of strategic importance such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, and information technology. However the study reports, it need only be among the leaders in an area like high energy physics. Leave the heavy dollar investing to other countries and be ready to act when a breakthrough is made. That is the jest of what the report appeared to be saying. Could this be a clue to the decisions that helped shape our current lack energy R &D in alternatives?
