Cara Horowitz in Grist: Biden nominees signal cooperation with states on climate

Beyond their stark ideological contrasts to President Donald Trump’s agency heads, President-elect Biden’s top-level nominees also appear to signal the new administration’s plans to embed climate policies at the state level, cementing the clean-energy transition and making it harder for the next GOP president to undo whatever progress his administration makes. 

“There’s this very calculated, hard-nosed recognition among the choices that executive action is going to be the key to progress, and action at the state level is going to be the key to progress,” said Cara Horowitz, a climate policy expert at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law.
