State-of-the-Union Address January 28, 2003
  • “Our goal is to promote energy independence for our country, while dramatically improving the environment. . . . In this century, the greatest environmental progress will come about not through endless lawsuits, or regulations, but through technology and innovation.
  • Tonight I’m proposing $1.2 billion in research funding so that America can lead the world in developing clean, hydrogen-powered automobiles. (Applause)
  • A single chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen generates energy, which can be used to power a car pollution-free – producing only water, not exhaust fumes. (Applause)
  • Join me in this important innovation to make to make our air cleaner, and our country less dependent on foreign sources of energy.” (Applause)

THERE IS NO PLAN!

We are hunter-gatherers. The brain that evolved to find grubs under logs and avoid tigers enables us to write sonnets and solve differential equations.

We can’t wait 100,000 years for new brains to evolve. We must learn to understand the ones we have or we won’t survive much longer.
