Obama picks 2 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 Energy Department and former state environmental official Gina McCarthy to run the Environmental Protection Agency.

“These two over here,” Obama said from the White House as Moniz and McCarthy stood nearby, “they’re going to be making sure that we’re investing in American energy, that we’re doing everything that we can to combat the threat of climate change, that we’re going to be creating jobs and economic opportunity.”
