EPA policy chief to resign, return to Georgetown Law

Lisa Heinzerling, the Environmental Protection Agency’s associate policy administrator, will step down at the end of the year and return her teaching position at Georgetown Law.

As one of the EPA’s strongest supporters of greenhouse gas regulation, Heinzerling previously worked as EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson‘s senior attorney for climate policy. She is gained popularity in environmental circles after authoring the winning petitioners in Massachusetts v. EPA, the 2007 Supreme Court case that allowed Congress to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act.

Heinzerling, who began working as a Georgetown University Law professor in 1993, took a two-year leave of absence to join the EPA in 2009. She previously served as the Assistant Attorney General of Massachusetts.

  1. My View : Re : Another Bush Era ( = Entire Downfall )
    1. I think Corrupt Money & Almost Dead Media led Independents to Fuel the no idea’ Gains.
    That explains why Moneycracy & Money-driven media call for urgent overhaul.
    Do people expect job growth, more affordable premium & cheaper gas prices from insurance take-over & oil companies ?‎
    Jobs ahead in another Bush era ( = Entire Downfall ) ??
    I think D.S. is going to realize vividly how Bush era wrecked economy.
    Of the money by the money for the money bound for corruption, greed is getting a society nowhere near prosperity.
    Gambling on party of “no idea” is sure to be much like Throwing an Egg of Economy Against a Rock.
    2. Extension of oil wars displaced Energy Independence or A Jobs law, empowering the war party and leaving healthcare law near demise before survival.
    Prior to the question of where are jobs ?‎ , the urgency of Energy Independence or A Jobs law needs to come first.
    At least pending RES legislation needs to be addressed in the first place.
    3. The most efficient deficit-cut way of government would be slashing the destructive war & military waste.
    Slashing the destructive war & military waste alone supposedly could be enough to balance the budget.
    Regrettably. opponents are instead critical of sound investments. ( Depression : New Deal = Great Recession : Stimulus Package (Groundwork) )
    Weapon Sell = Mexican Drug Trafficking = Destroy all, driving global economy in a destructive direction.
    Even Overall US intelligence budget tops $80 billion annually.
    4. While the days of cheap oil is gone, thankfully, just as insightful Al Gore predicted, even if fewer people then agreed with his claim, recent findings show that tangible increase in the renewable energy capacity is economically and technically feasible.
    Currently, the exciting fourth wave of smart grid & renewable energy with great job potential world-wide is upon us.
    And surprisingly, the EV world broke the most challenging barrier of limited range.
    DBM Energy’s electric Audi A2 completed record setting 372 mile drive on a single charge.

    The recent bold drive for green energy in CA could shed lights on how best to meet the challenge of high unemployment.

  2. hsr061 – please, please tell me you are not a Georgetown student. Freshman dumb enough to manufacture drugs in a dorm or to perform in porn I can take. But if someone with your inability to write coherently and lack of knowledge was admitted, I’m giving up all hope for my alma mater.
