The woman who led California through the development and implementation of some groundbreaking environmental policies could soon be headed to Washington, D.C.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson announced her resignation this week, and already people are speculating about who will next head the agency. One name on nearly every pundit's short list: California Air Resources Board Chairwoman Mary Nichols.
Nichols would be a controversial pick, as would most any candidate with a strong environmental record. She was rumored to be a finalist four years ago, but President Obama picked Jackson, a chemical engineer who had served as former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine's chief of staff.
Whoever is chosen must be confirmed by the Senate.
Nichols led the implementation of AB32, California's landmark greenhouse gas reduction law.

Of course whoever the pick will be pure anti-capitalist.
Not a degreed engineer. Maybe a Bullshoot engineer.
She's a super-eco-freak with too much notoriety. Obumugabe will pick a more stealth candidate who will be just as toxic or worse. There are millions of holy rollers to choose from
Someone with minimal or zero work history in the dreaded private sector. Your bonafide eco-freaks have never held a productive job. They have worked the Gov't and Edu rackets
California Air Resources Board Chairwoman Mary Nichols.
CARB is Cali’s answer to Stalin’s NKVD - commissars one and all.
Wesley Mouch for EPA!
I nominate Dick Cheney.....
I nominate Richard Windsor. Maybe we can actually find out who he is.
an aRnie approved pick, no doubt .. whatever it takes to advance a ‘green’ agenda is OK by him.
