Well, maybe it won't be solved, but the Brooklyn Energy Project is intended to be "a more rapid and effective alternative to a Manhattan Project for energy." "It is intended to open and accelerate new paths, as well as provide new perspectives, toward averting catastrophe and creating a more peaceful and prosperous planet," reads their press release. Turns out Brooklyn is being used symbolically, though, since it's the "other side of the bridge" from Manhattan. The actual research will take place in Sebatopol, California. Can't beat the Brooklyn brand.
