On January 21, 2010, the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee held a hearing to receive testimony on the research, development, priorities and imperatives needed to meet the medium and long term challenges associated with climate change. The only invited witness was Dr. Steven Chu, the Secretary of Energy. There were a number of interesting exchanges, the below is one between Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) who demonstrated his frustration with yet another Secretary of Energy explaining how the NRC is working to streamline the reactor licensing process. (Senator Bunning stated that he had been on the Senate Energy Committee for 12 years and had heard exactly the same words from several people holding the same position.)
