UR TO ENVIRONMENTALISTS, "FRACK YOU":

Environmental Groups Target Ernest Moniz, President Obama's Likely Choice for Energy Secretary (Miranda Green, Feb 24, 2013, Daily Beast)

President Obama is widely expected to nominate Ernest Moniz as Energy secretary any day now, and environmental organizations are girding for a fight. 

"We're not sure Mr. Moniz will keep his eyes where they should be: on a no-carbon future where we are relying on wind and other forms of energy," says Mitch Jones, a program director at Food and Water Watch.

The anti-fracking organization, began an effort to block Moniz's nomination after reports surfaced that the long-haired MIT professor is the president's likely pick. The organization lambasted Moniz for his preference for fossil fuels as an energy source and for being a fracking "cheerleader."
