ABC News' Jonathan Karl reports: Back in 2007, when Steven Chu had words of extremely high praise for BP. Chu, then the director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and a professor at UC Berkeley, praised BP for making a $500 million investment in the Energy Biosciences Institute at UC-Berkeley.
Here’s how Chu put it, in an on-camera interview at the institute:
“Now, with partnering with BP, we will have the resources to actually carry out some of the things we want to do to in order to help save the world.”
The interview is available Youtube (as of now, only 46 views):
