Steven Chu - US Department of Energy finally employs someone who can do the math

What's great about this guy is he is proponent of alternative energy, and knows his science.

If the rumors are true, and I dearly hope they are, President-elect Barack Obama could not have made a better choice to head up the Department of Energy than Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Chu. 

At his current post as the director of the DOE's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Chu's goal has been nothing short of solving the world's energy problems. When I interviewed him four years ago for the Contra Costa Times when he took the job as director, he told me, "Wouldn't it be nice if we could solve this problem? I think we're poised to help in a major way."
