[There are steps] you can take they’re mostly energy efficiency that have negative costs And the reason they have negative costs is because they repay in energy savings more than you have to invest to put them in place But they also happen to reduce greenhouse gas emissions I call that the low-hanging fruit Some of it is on the ground But for some of it there’s a fence around the tree meaning barriers to picking the low-hanging fruit Those include lack of information because consumers don’t really know what’s available to them . The next set of items in that supply curve is above the line which means you have to pay for them But they would [be feasible] if you had the kind of price on carbon that seems likely in the next 20 years If [emitting] carbon was $30 a ton for instance you would do most of that stuff . [The most expensive] things are things that would be too expensive even if you had a $30 price on carbon And for those things you need research and development and demonstration Q Could you talk a little about environmental monitoring satellites JH: When we came into office we had the challenge of the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System . One of my instructions both from the president and the Congress was "You need to fix this" We need to get NASA NOAA and the Department of Defense on the same page Q: How’s that effort going JH: I think we’ve largely gotten it done that is we’ve largely gotten NASA and NOAA and DOD on the same page and we’ve gotten an agreed scheme for going forward that will cover the missions and the instruments and the responsibilities that we need Then the challenge becomes the budget That’s not resolved yet; we don’t have the 2011 budget yet Q: On the budget what has it meant that science was exempt from the 3-year funding freeze on discretionary and research spending in the president’s 2011 budget request JH: It wasn’t really exempt What happened was there was a back and forth In the initial cuts science was not exempt There’s a conversation that happens with the president that goes "Mr President here is a budget that complies with your initial guidance And if this is the budget you go with here’s how much you will have to do in science and technology and here’s what you won’t be able to do that you might want to do" Then the president looks at that and decides whether the budget that meets his original guidance will do and he decided last year he wanted to do more So we didn’t exempt science last year—science went through the same process everyone else did last year and came out with a budget that was flat with 2010 But then the president had an understanding that some of his explicit priorities he’d committed to would not be doable under that flat budget so he decided to spend more And that included upticks in the NSF budget and the DOE Office of Science because without that he couldn’t stay on his trajectory to meet his commitment to double the budget of those agencies in a decade It included additional money for NIH; it included additional money for NASA Q: What metrics do you find useful in tracking the nation’s scientific performance JH: We try to track all the metrics that we can and we also try to spend some time thinking of better ones There are input metrics like "How much money are you spending on R&D" "How many scientists are you graduating" You look at patents you look at publications and you look at rates of improvement of different performance That is you look at rates of improvement in energy efficiency You look at rates of improvement in the capacity to control emissions in cost-effective ways . The ones that get the most attention from the public are "How do your kids do in international standardized tests" How much money are you spending How many kids are you graduating" . We’re still doing very well in many fields and indeed we lead the world in many fields At the same time there are a lot of fields in which it makes great sense to make common cause and cooperate internationally rather than competing Big science is one example Q What will it take to advance the Administration’s goals on climate policy JH: In the domain we’ve been talking about here energy and climate we have not been able to do as much as we had hoped There are a number of reasons for that including the unexpected and numerous crises that ended up taking a lot of the time and energy of people in the Administration and the fact that the health care issue took so much more time and proved so much more difficult than expected It didn’t leave a lot of time to develop the consensus to try to get through [Congress] something like [energy] . With the composition of the new Congress we’re unlikely to get the kind of legislation we were seeking in the last one which really does everything as one big package and gets a cap-and-trade approach or another approach to putting a price on carbon So we’re going to have to do a lot of other things *This item has been corrected 2:20 pm, See what else is making news.” AGU leaders wrote in a 15 September post announcing the change, as she walks with folded hands through the narrow alleys, she reads out an extract from a speech made by freedom fighter Bhagat Singh: “Revolution does not necessarily involve sanguinary strife, carrying his miner’s helmet.
