The latest on ongoing debates is also summarized, including hot-button topics such as climate change, natural gas issues, hydraulic fracturing, ARPA-E funding, Gina McCarthy’s nomination to be EPA Administrator, the Keystone XL pipeline, and greenhouse gas rules. Also covered are new bills, energy and environmental initiatives, and upcoming hearings.
