U.S. Government Budget Circa 2009

In case you aren't motivated to go out and vote this year, consider how and where our government is planning on spending money next year.

And it's nice to know we're spending more next year on Basic Energy, High Energy Physics, Nuclear Physics and Fusion Energy - and less on Conservation, Biomass, Solar and Hydrogen.

Maybe we will figure out how to extract energy from our garbage after all.

What's really astounding is how much of this visual depiction is dominated by military and defense spending.
