(Denver, Colorado, 2/20/2006) Tina Larney (cq), who was laid off during the recent NREL cuts, addresses the press during a press conference with energy experts and advocates before the President's visit to the National Renewable Laboratory (NREL) on Tuesday. Word has it that 32 jobs will be reinstated now on the eve of his arrival. Tina said that she questioned this administrations commitment to finding and funding renewable energy sources and that NREL has been underfunded and marginalized. Colorado energy experts and advocates Monday called on the federal government to put its money where its mouth is and fully fund clean energy research and development. Despite the fact that the President recently restored 32 jobs that were cut from NREL, funding for the institution has declined for the past three years. Colorado was the first state to pass a renewable energy standard in 2004 though Amendment 37, which calls the state to meet 10% of the state's electricity needs with clean, renewable energy production by 2015. A group of energy experts and advocates said in the press conference in Golden that the country needs to start seriously investing now in clean and safe energy technologies, using clean domestic resources, and creating American jobs in the renewable energy fields.
