I put up a post yesterday regarding the failing support of the FutureGen project. An update was published today in the New York Times. It now appears that the entire project has been canceled due to "higher cost" then what was originally projected for the project.
I sincerely hope that the funds previously designated to FutureGen make their way to another energy research initiative. If these funds end up being shifted toward an unrelated project (i could state many controversial possibilities here) I will be very disappointed in our government leaders.
