Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden to Tap Former EPA Chief Gina McCarthy as U.S. Climate Czar” – below is their description.
President-elect Joe Biden is expected to tap former Environmental Protection Agency chief Gina McCarthy to spearhead his ambitions for a massive, coordinated domestic campaign to slow climate change.
That’s according to a person familiar with the plans who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to avoid publicly preempting the president-elect’s announcement.
McCarthy’s selection is in line with Biden’s pattern of picking tested, familiar figures from his time as vice president, passing over potentially more exciting and younger figures from the progressive movement.
McCarthy’s counterpart in climate efforts will be former Secretary of State John Kerry, earlier named by Biden as his climate envoy for national security issues.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
