President-elect Barack Obama is set to formally introduce his energy and climate team in the coming days. His pick for a newly created position overseeing energy, climate and environmental issues is the respected energy and environmental policy expert Carol Browner. Browner also happens to be an On Day One user. In March, we asked Browner what she thinks the next president should do, on day one. One idea was not enough, so she gave us three.

Here is the former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator advising that the next president should sign an exective order re-affirming the role of independent science in policy making. Dare I say she will be in a privileged position to see this idea though?
