OH HELL NO: A New Manhattan Project?

It's not what it seems to be (at least at first glance), but it sure is one bad name for a program dedicated to energy independence:

H.R. 6260, The New Manhattan Project for Energy Independence

H.R. 6260 would ensure the energy independence of the United States by promoting research, development, demonstration, and commercial application of technologies through a system of grants and prizes on the scale of the original Manhattan Project.
I don't know about you, but when they say, "Manhattan Project," I think:

Call me crazy, but probably not the smartest PR move.
