Congratulations March 25, 2009 : 4:08 PM

I want to congratulate my friends, John Holdren and Jane Lubchenco, who were confirmed by the Senate last week to serve as Director of the Office of Science & Technology Policy and Director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration respectively.

These two are exactly the type of leaders we need in government if we are going to take the steps necessary to solve the climate crisis. Along with Secretary of Energy Steven Chu and Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change Carol Browner, President Obama has assembled an amazing team.
