President Obama wants to curb carbon emissions at the same time he's pushing for "energy independence." Today, he announced cabinet nominations that could lead to a major confrontation over coal plants and climate change. The President's choice to head the Environmental Protection Agency is EPA veteran Gina McCarthy. His pick for the Energy Department is a physicist from MIT, Ernest Moniz. Coral Davenport covers the environment for the National Journal.
