Greg White’s appointment is a political one and he speaks before Congress on energy issues, so this meeting was, for him, somewhat refreshing in that he could speak candidly on the political underpinnings of energy policy. He chose to focus on the politics more than the science involved, due to time constraints and because of this opportunity to speak freely on the political aspects which he generally must be careful in expressing. He also noted that he was speaking for himself, not on behalf of the Public Services Commission.
