“I welcome the President’s choices to lead the EPA and the Energy Department.  Gina McCarthy is a terrific choice.  She’s a proven leader who makes science-based decisions.  Over the last four years, she demonstrated the judgment we need to protect public health and the environment while promoting the nation’s economic recovery.  I also look forward to working with Ernie Moniz.  He knows the Department and will continue its vital mission to move the nation towards a clean energy future.”
