Thanks for the update. I hadn't known we were cutting back this badly. Another blow to science.

The $50 million at issue, cut from U.S. fusion research, is a tiny amount compared to the estimated $4 to $41 billion in U.S. federal subsidies to the oil and gas industries.

(At the end of March, Senate Republicans successfully voted to keep subsidies.)

Unelected corporate government is the appropriate term here!

Grinning Cat, you state it accurately! Oil and gas, products of Mother Nature, will win over profit driven legislators and corporations. She will have the last laugh.
