Any Texas granddaddy will tell you he’s seen it all, when it comes to weather and climate extremes. Tornadoes, hurricanes, heat waves, blizzards, droughts, flash floods, and storms that bring unique combinations of wind, dust, thunder and hail.Read on. I was intrigued to see the expression "environmental justice" in the linked article (uttered by EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson). This is the second time I've come across it, and I find it troubling - mostly because the word "justice" in the mouth of one of Obama's satraps is nearly always an obscenity, a lie used to justify some new encroachment on liberty.
Any Lone Star citizen will point out that Texas is America’s leading producer of crude oil, natural gas and (heavily subsidized) wind-based energy. It has the second largest workforce and gross state product in the USA, produces more electricity than any other state, and refines one-fourth of our petroleum – for a country that is 85% dependent on fossil fuels.
Mess with Texas, and the damages will reverberate throughout our nation.
So why is the US Environmental Protection Agency sending federal agents to Texas — to arrest the state’s economy for the “crime” of emitting carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4)?
Tell ya what; my money's on Texas.
