Summary

As someone now working full time in global health and development, I see firsthand how the U.S. government's support for scientific research has improved people's lives. That support is vital in another area—affordable, clean energy. I believe it is imperative that the government commit to clean energy innovation at a level similar to its research investments in health and defense.
