EPA Head Calls Climate-Change Shift a Proud Milestone

(USA Today)

SAN FRANCISCO -- As she prepares to step down from her position as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, Lisa Jackson said she is proudest of presiding over the landmark finding that climate-changing greenhouse gases endanger public health and welfare.

"Americans are back to believing that something is happening with our climate and that mankind has a role to play in that. These are not natural phenomena," said Jackson in her first newspaper interview since announcing on Dec. 27 that she would leave the EPA.
