Gore vs. Chu: What happened to that great energy technology that we allegedly had in '08?

Mar '08: Gore suggests we already have the technology
"We have to stop this, and the truth is we can," Gore said. "We have the technology. If we just had one week's worth of what we spend on the Iraq war we could be well on our way to solving this challenge."
May '09: Secretary Chu says we NEED the technology
Starting today, the Department of Energy is accepting proposals for energy R&D projects that “disrupt the status quo. The Nation needs transformational energy-related technologies to overcome the threats posed by climate change and energy security, arising from its reliance on traditional uses of fossil fuels and the dominant use of oil in transportation.”
