Top Obama climate aide stepping down
The Hill ^ | October 7, 2013 | Ben Geman

Posted on 10/07/2013 1:26:09 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Heather Zichal, President Obama’s top energy and climate change adviser, is leaving the White House.

Zichal has worked behind the scenes and been a public face for President Obama’s climate and energy platform, including controversial second-term plans to limit carbon emissions from power plants.

[snip]

Prior to coming to the White House, Zichal was a policy director on President Obama’s 2008 campaign. Before that, she was legislative director for ex-Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), who is now secretary of State.

Her departure in the next few weeks will mark what has been an almost complete turnover of Obama’s energy and environment team.

His first-term Energy and Interior secretaries have been replaced, and new Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy began her tenure in mid-July after a long confirmation battle.

Zichal is leaving as the focus of climate and energy policy shifts to the agencies themselves.....

Now comes her payday.

Look for her to personally score multiple tens of millions of dollars by signing on as an consultant to "greenish" firms and using her influence to steer hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars to them.

Its all very algorean and smiled upon by the morons who vote for the liberal criminal syndicate.

We can be virtually certain that whoever Obama appoints in her place will be even worse. His advisers have a real gift for finding these people.

In one e-mail, dated Oct. 27, 2010, Heather R. Zichal, the deputy assistant to the president for energy and climate change, told Carol M. Browner, the White House’s chief staff member on climate change: “Solyndra is going to announce that they are laying off 200 of their 1,200 workers. No es bueno.”

That announcement was postponed until the day after the midterm elections of Nov. 2, 2010, apparently at the urging of the Department of Energy.

When she wasn’t a public face she was behind the scenes.

That's wishful thinking. In 5 years they have implemented a huge portion of the progressive agenda.

ALL of Clown Prince nobama’s appointees should be in prison for the rest of their worthless existances. All should be investigated and brought to justice for their crimes against America, the Constitution, our freedoms and the American people. Criminals all.

She probably tired of being continuously laughed at when she says man-made Climate Change is real.

What high school does she go to? I’m sure I could set up some kid in my town with her.
