President Barack Obama's nominee for interior secretary pledged Thursday to take a balanced approach to energy that would expand and diversify production on public lands while protecting the environment.

Sally Jewell, president of Recreational Equipment Inc., told a Senate committee that she supports Obama's "all-of-the-above" energy strategy, which embraces fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas and coal as well as renewable sources such as wind and solar.
