Barack Obama has chosen a two-term EPA head, an experimental physicist known for LASER experiments, and some woman from New Jersey to fix the environment.

One of these things is not like the other, right? Clinton's EPA head Carol Browner will be the "climate czar," and Dr. Steven Chu, a physicist who won a Nobel for "laser cooling and trapping of atoms, will lead the Department of Energy. Can we just say that it is awesome to select an experimental physicist for Energy Secretary instead of just, like, "some guy from Texas who oil companies like" ?

Also there is a woman from New Jersey. She will be head of the EPA, because she has the most modern experience with environmental disasters (because she's from New Jersey ha ha ha). (Also she is the head of the New Jersey EPA or something?)
