Unbelievable sense of entitlement

Colin Rowan, of Environmental Defense:

Among all states, Texas is by far the No. 1 emitter of greenhouse gas pollution. But Texas has no plan to stop it, slow it down or deal with the consequences. We don't even have an official state inventory of what's at risk. Other states are trying to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, but Texas is poised to build 19 coal-fired power plants that will emit an additional 110 million tons of greenhouse gas pollution a year. That's a pretty good snapshot of the path our leaders have taken us down.


What's wrong with these people? Their children and grandchildren have to inherit the same damaged earth as the rest of us.

  1. Well, just think about one of its previous governors and the role that greed plays in that state's politics.
