Good news story; cars, smart grid and clean tech

Encouraging post in Grist weblog about how the Obama administration has unblocked the US$25 billion in funds to the car industry that had been provided in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. To be used for supporting electric car manufacturing and increasing energy efficiency in car plants.

Why couldn't we have put aside a few billion for energy efficiency, retraining or green industry in Australia instead of giving everyone $900 to pay off their mortgage or buy a plasma screen TV! Someone please tell me I've missed an important announcement & I'm just an old whinger (OK, middle-aged).
