WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama thanked retiring Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson on Thursday for her service, praising her work on mercury pollution limits, fighting climate change, and helping set new fuel economy standards.

"Under her leadership, the EPA has taken sensible and important steps to protect the air we breathe and the water we drink," Obama said in a statement.
