The department runs the nation’s national laboratories, sets appliance standards and hands out grants and loan guarantees for everything from basic research to solar cells to capturing carbon dioxide from coal combustion…[As governor, Perry reportedly embodied an] ‘all of the above’ approach to U.S. energy…[In that time, Texas was not only a world leader in oil and gas production; it was also a global leader in wind power and renewable energy investment…[I]f confirmed, Perry will walk into an agency where many career civil servants will likely be wary of him…[and on edge after] Trump’s transition team gave a questionnaire to DOE officials asking they identify which employees have worked on either international climate negotiations or domestic initiatives to cut carbon.” click here for more
