SANTA FE – Albert Migliori is bearing down on a part of the global energy problem for which Los Alamos National Laboratory has already laid some claims.
He’s not talking about the drilling problem or how far out on the continental shelf drilling should begin, although antique legislation and backward incentives that reward depletion of non-renewable resources do warrant criticism in his view.
“Our government is a disaster,” he said, speaking his own mind as a scientist about the Catch-22s of energy policy.
Nor does he emphasize the demand side, the sprawling inefficiencies of a society based on automobiles for every individual.
He does think one of those electric Tesla sports cars that gets 220 miles on a charge and accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds is more than you could ask for.
“I’ll tell you what you could ask for, a price tag less than a hundred ‘thou,’” he said.
Migliori is a Laboratory Fellow, and a physicist associated with the Seaborg Institute and the High Magnetic Field Laboratory. Although he has a broad portfolio of research, one of his main jobs at the laboratory is designing hydrogen storage solutions as a part of a national program.
