Science

http://phys.org/news171643486.html

A totally new method of generating electricity has been discovered.  Trees apparently generate a small amount of electrical energy that can be tapped and used to power a tiny device.  Scientists are working to develop methods of getting more out of these trees to power more products.

Imagine low power telephones, lights and other household items powered by the very trees in your backyard.  What an elegant solution to the energy crisis.  Simply plant more trees and create more energy.  Basic research is important.  The Obama Administration has wasted money on short term political gains and stopped space research and other important science.

Basic scientific research has kept American Industry and military in the forefront of the world.  The government has always provided money for this type of basic science to help industry to stay ahead of the industry of other nations.  The nation has many problems, science can help us solve many of them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
