You can't rush the science, but when the science points you in the right direction, then you can start rushing.
Our work on light bulbs wasn't an arbitrary mandate. We didn't just pick a standard out of the air, or look for a catchy sounding standard like 25 by 2025 not based in science or feasibility.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
