Obama's Appointment of Stephen Chu is A Smart Move

From WSJ:

Chu shared the 1997 Nobel Prize in physics and is a former chairman of the physics department at Stanford University in California and head of the electronics research laboratory at Bell Labs.

The Lawrence Berkeley website said Chu was an early advocate for finding scientific solutions to climate change and had guided the laboratory on a new mission to become the world leader in alternative and renewable energy research, particularly the development of carbon-neutral sources of energy.

This isn't a big government approach. Lawerence Livermore is an innovation engine for US government and it will allow us to develop technologies useful for the government and eventually disperse the technology to the commercial arena.
