Obama taps two from Mass. for energy, EPA posts

President Obama on Monday turned to Massachusetts for his nominees to the nation’s top energy and environmental posts, tapping MIT physicist Ernest J. Moniz to lead the Department of Energy, and Boston-area native and former state environmental official Gina McCarthy as the next administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.

“These two over here they’re going to be making sure we’re investing in American clean energy,” Obama said at the White House, “that we’re doing everything we can do to combat climate change.”
