Nobel-laureate physicist Steven Chu as nation’s energy secretary in US

President-elect Barack Obama is expected to nominate Nobel-laureate physicist Steven Chu, director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and a renowned expert on alternative fuels and climate change, as the nation’s energy secretary.

At the National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas during the summer, he said one myth of the energy crisis is that all the necessary technology exists to solve the problem and that only political will is lacking.

“I think political will is absolutely necessary, but we need new technologies to transform the landscape,” he told the crowd.
