Thirty-four Nobel Laureates on Thursday issued a joint statement calling on Congress to adopt President Obama proposed $150 billion Clean Energy Technology Fund in the climate legislation it is considering. The climate bill approved by the House in June falls far short of this goal, endangering the goal of conducting research on a variety of topics related to climate change, according to the statement. "The stable support this Fund would provide is essential to pay for the research and development needed if the U.S., as well as the developing world, are to achieve their goals in reducing greenhouse gases at an affordable cost," they wrote.
