US Dream Green Team

The US President-elect has appointed the heads of his environmental team, with Steven Chu, a Nobel prize-winning physicist, as Energy Secretary and Carol Browner, the former EPA chief, taking the new White House 'Czar' (or Tsar or Tsarina, depending on which report you read) role. The EPA will be run by Lisa Jackson, who was a New Jersey environmental regulator.

Chu and Browner are being described as the green dream team (or dream green team) in what is seen as a decisive move by Barack Obama to a more scientific approach to environmental issues than the oil-industry influenced policy of recent years.

It will be very interesting to see how this pans out next year after power has changed hands.
