Time Magazine interview with new EPA chief

By Damien M. Schiff Senior Attorney

In this week's issue, Time has an interview with Lisa Jackson, the new Administrator of the EPA.  Here are some choice quotes from Ms. Jackson.

"[W]e are not looking to regulate wildly. I do think that you can regulate in a thoughtful fashion."

"The science on whether or not these gases are pollutants is clear. As the endangerment finding says, in both magnitude and probability climate change is an enormous problem. . . .  People tend to think we're trying to compel folks, but we're just trying to do our job."

"The clean energy revolution is coming."

"I want my tenure to show a more activist EPA."

"You have the right to not live next to a polluted brownfield."
