    Great news for 2 billion loan

    President Obama is expected to nominate Ernest Moniz for the position of Energy Secretary (Head of the energy department). I'm not sure all you know this but Ernest Moniz used to be and may still be on USEC'S strategic advisory council. So basically the head of the department that will be reviewing the loan guarnetee in December used to work for USEC and was on their strategic advisory council. Sounds like a great choice to me.

      Even the rumor that President Obama will appoint Ernest Moniz, a nuclear physicist at MIT who previously served in the Clinton Administration, has the "green" left in an uproar. Sounds to me like a decent candidate. (Emphasis mine):

      “Mr. Moniz is affiliated with the industry-backed MIT Energy Initiative, so we shouldn’t be surprised about his favorable position on fracking,” read the statement. “But President Obama could do a lot better. Appointing Mr. Moniz would be a nail in the coffin for one of his most lauded inaugural speech promises: a commitment to focus on climate solutions.”

      “Appointing Mr. Moniz would be a nail in the coffin for one of his most lauded inaugural speech promises: a commitment to focus on climate solutions.”

      Moniz is a nuclear physicist at MIT and serves as the director of the school’s Energy Initiative. He also has a history in Washington, having served as Energy undersecretary during Bill Clinton’s second term. He has publically advocated natural gas as a transition fuel to a low-carbon future and argued that is the most cost effective source over renewable energy.
