NIH Director Francis Collins today announced that he has approved the 43rd line in the NIH stem cell registry, which includes cell lines approved subsequent to the Bush deadline of August 2001. The new line, widely used by researchers, was developed by scientists at the University of Wisconsin.
The White House announced today that the U.S. government will cut greenhouse emissions from its own activities by 28% below 2008 levels.
On 10 a.m. Monday, the Federal budget for 2011 will be released in Washington, D.C. After a year in Washington, it's the first chance for President Barack Obama's team to show what it has accomplished. Among the key questions which will be answered are: What's the fate of research agencies in a relatively austere fiscal year? What's Obama's vision for manned space? And how will the Administration adjudicate the end of the troubled $15 billion National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System, which is supposed to provide weather and climate data for military and civilian weather forecasters and climate scientists. That program is expected to be split into two or more separate programs.
On Monday, the Pentagon will release its Quadrennial Defense Review and may include climate change as "destabilizing force" for the United States.
