Kathleen Hartnett White is probably best known for her idealistic view of fossil fuels, but a scandal from her tenure as a top environmental regulator in Texas is drawing attention to radiation in drinking water -- a problem environmentalists say is widespread and a public health concern.

Hartnett White has other controversial ideas. She told the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee in November that climate science is still "subject to debate," and the degree that human-caused carbon pollution is ...
