    It's not the microwave vs laser that bothers me. It's the policy. If this is truly an energy project, why fund it through DOD and not the national labs?

    Better yet, why not fund through the inventors and patent holders?

    Likewise, they don't make much sense as power sources either. No mention of absorption losses of energy through clouds or rain, and the efficiency is just not cost effective at all. It's a cool demonstration, but not much else.
