After only three years, the Utah State University Energy Dynamics Laboratory — which has given rise to high-tech projects ranging from smart sensors that give the ability to change office room settings to pads that can power an electric vehicle wirelessly — is closing up shop.

    Sorry, when I said Blubber, I meant Blob.

    Probably a complete external audit (key word being external) of dollars moving into USURF and out through the Energy Dynamics Lab. GRAMA makes this entirely possible. In terms of layoffs, all you have to do is ask any one non-management at EDL or SDL. The layoffs are well known throughout the organization.

    SeattleSun, you raise a few very good points. There could be something to your statements. How could we find out?

    I suppose that you mean coal, gas, and oil to be the serious energy researchers. In which case, I agree completely. The Koch brothers, who have 'donated' hundreds of thousands of dollars to USU, in past years, have huge interests in fossil fuels. No way to know how much has been 'donated' since 2010, since the enactment of Citizen's United protects them from disclosure. We can all see the fits and starts of renewable energy, although some headway has been made, just not nearly enough.

    Now that the elites and mega-corporation are in control of the government, I predict that renewable energy will die a slow death by starvation.

    I'm curious how well the HJ actually fact checked this article and Lemon's statements. That no one from EDL was fired or laid off is a bald-faced lie that Lemon ought really be publicly called out on and make an accurate accounting of. An edict of USTAR is creating Utah jobs, not creating programs and companies that benefit other states.

    You know what I don't get? I don't get where Angry, Skip, Blubber, Kenny, and all the others who think it is a waste of money to teach our children are right now. See fellas, this here is a waste of money. All that was accomplished is a few PhD's got fed for a few years. It was all federal earmarks and "USTAR" money--no competitive grants. Straight down a rat hole. So what does this not torque you off, but keeping our class size below 60 is Armageddon?

    That would be very interesting. And Lemon's name finally makes sense to me.

    I have a feeling, BTW, we haven't heard the last of EDL. I hope there's a thorough audit of past funding.

    Stranger was right! Way to tap dance in your response to the HJ, Dr. Lemon!

    This thing was a sham from the beginning. For all those who called me a naysayer for criticizing them in the past, you can enter your apology below. Now the serious energy researchers can work without interference from EDL.
