The US Government Budget Explained: Animation

Rezwan Razani - August 01, 2013

Every year, the fusion research budget increases or decreases with the vagaries of the US Federal Budget.  Why is it such a roller coaster?





I tried to explain the US Federal Budget process as it relates to fusion energy, but I didn’t understand just how surreal it is.

Then, I stumbled on CGP Grey’s Debt Limit animation.  I am amazed and scandalized.  Behold, the full splendor of the budget process.

Enjoy (or weep) and share!

Help us develop videos to explain the “Story of Energy.”  We would like to do a “Story of Stuff” type animation for energy production.  It’s part of the Cinderella Energy Project in which we shine a light on the actual materials consumed, fatalities caused and landscapes disrupted per Tera Watt of energy produced by energy type.
