Statement by Reid Detchon, Executive Director, Energy Future Coalition:
“Steve Chu understands the urgency of the climate challenge and the importance of encouraging scientific research and technological innovation to address it. His selection is another indication of how seriously president-elect Obama takes the issue. He will maximize the contributions of our national laboratories toward a new energy future for the United States. He deserves swift confirmation.
“Enactment of robust clean energy programs will lead to a surge in job creation and economic growth, and moving to arrest greenhouse gas emissions is vital to the health of the planet. Steve Chu is the right person, at the right time, to advance both issues.”
