    Steven Chu needs help now--

    I am sorry to say this because he is a very smart man and obviously managed his prior job very well. But he needs help evaluating the business impact of his decisions. He is not doing a good job on that.

    You can't start and stop industries on technical whim. You can't send conflicted messages to an industry, promising to back it up then withdrawing backing because you decide this or that project needs to be improved. I don't doubt that he has good science reasons to suggest the centrifuge project or hydrogen cell technology faces hurdles ahead -- but you just can't stop things on its tracks and then restart it later on. If the DOE thinks the centrifuge technology is promising then they have to work with it not punt for the time being...

    I am bit disappointed that he is not doing a better job. I thought he would, frankly.

    Having Nobel Prize does not exonerate him from making sound business decisions given his current job. He needs help.

    Just my opinion
