    Statement From Ken Berlin, President & CEO of The Climate Reality Project, on Governor Jennifer Granholm’s Nomination to Lead the Department of Energy

    “Governor Jennifer Granholm is a strong and passionate advocate for renewable energy, and her record of leadership on climate solutions makes her an exciting choice to lead the US Department of Energy.

    “Governor Granholm recognizes the urgency of the climate crisis and understands the extraordinary economic opportunity of a just clean energy transition. During her tenure as governor of Michigan, she boldly led on renewable energy and took important steps to bolster alternative energy technologies and create jobs in the fast-growing wind and solar industries.

    “As the country contends with the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, investing in good-paying, green jobs in clean energy, energy efficiency, and electric vehicle manufacturing and deployment will be critical to getting our economy back on track. Climate Reality is confident Governor Granholm has the experience and knowledge needed to lead the nation towards a low-carbon future, and we believe she will be a strong voice for climate action within President-elect Biden’s cabinet.”
