Suggestions for the next Secretary of Energy

Tom Harris and Bryan Leyland, of the ICSC offer some opinions on how the next Secretary of Energy should be picked.

The next secretary must be a sensible, real-world manager, someone with the strength to stand up to activists in the Environmental Protection Agency bent on destroying coal, America’s leading energy source. And he or she has to effectively challenge those who refuse to accept that nuclear power is comparably safe and environmentally friendly. The new secretary also needs to boost the development of new, more efficient technologies to convert existing abundant resources of coal, gas, and uranium to even lower cost, reliable supplies of electricity.
