The choice of Perry, first disclosed on Monday, is likely to further worry environmentalists concerned about the incoming Trump administration’s impact on the climate, while an eager energy industry ready for expansion welcomes the selection. “Rick Perry created … a business climate that produced millions of new jobs and lower energy prices in his state, and he will bring that same approach to our entire country as secretary of energy,” Trump said in the statement.
