03/24/2011 - Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm is joining the nonpartisan Pew Charitable Trusts as a senior adviser on energy and will tour the United States to tout pragmatic solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Granholm is joining former Virginia Sen. John Warner in the effort to push "for clean energy policies that have bipartisan support."
"Gov. Granholm has a demonstrated track record in growing the clean energy economy in the U.S.," said Joshua Reichert, managing director of the Pew Environment Group.
"During her eight years as governor of Michigan, she pioneered some of the most compelling clean energy policies in the nation, working with business and labor, Republicans and Democrats to create new economic opportunities for the state. Her leadership attracted more than 89,000 jobs and $9.4 billion in clean energy investments to Michigan."
