Former president Bush devoted chunks of money to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, launching research projects across the country. Unfortunately, the Obama administration (specifically Energy Secretary Dr. Steven Chu) would rather focus on electric vehicles, since EV technology is literally ready to roll. Budgets being what they are, Chu cut hydrogen funding, but constituents who depend on fuel cell projects for their livelihood weren't happy and called their elected officials. Result: congress is forcing the Chu to spend $204 million on hydrogen fuel cells -- whether the Nobel laureate likes it or not.  [BusinessInsider]
