Science Group Offers Reaction to Perry’s Nomination Hearing for Energy Secretary Position

Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS)

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources will hold a hearing tomorrow to consider President-elect Donald Trump’s selection for Energy Department (DOE) secretary Rick Perry, the former governor of Texas.

Perry is one of a number of nominees who have been hostile to the agency they would lead. In addition, Perry has openly expressed doubts about the scientific consensus on climate change. DOE has enormous science and national security responsibilities.
