WWJD to protect his father's creations Texas?

Quote:
Texas officials and their allies assert that regulations they consider hasty and onerous would hurt the state's vast economy, which relies on oil refineries, coal-burning power plants and manufacturing.

Those facilities have made Texas the nation's largest emitter of greenhouse gases from power plants, industrial facilities and other so-called stationary sites, according to an Environmental Defense Fund analysis of EPA data. If it were a separate country, Texas would be the seventh-biggest emitter of stationary-site greenhouse gases in the world, according to the environmental group.

[Governor] Perry, who has successfully run for three terms in part by criticizing Washington, took aim at outside regulatory intrusion during his victory speech Tuesday night.

"People are tired of the government cooking up new ways to micromanage their lives," he said. "They're tired of the government killing jobs with their do-gooder policies that have nothing to do with science or economics."

I'm not surprised; in-fact I would be surprised if the Republican majority in Texas would in any way take seriously their pollution problem. But that would interfere with making money regardless of how many people get sick and die of air pollutants.

I also read today that the Texas legislature is trying to get out of participating in Medicare. Texas would prefer to drop any medical coverage for its citizens because they don't want to spend the money.

The Texas governor and Republican legislature want to re-instate sodomy law and make gay sex a crime.

The list goes on and on.

There is a world of difference in values between a state like Texas and California.

"greenhouse gasses" are a theory. Not fact.

And God made the world 6000 yrs ago according to the Texas Board of Education's insistence on teaching "creationism" in school textbooks. Why would anyone intelligent rely on the backward Bible-belt nuts of Texas?

...'cause China, Mexico, Russia, India, Japan stop their "air pollutants" at their boarders?

...decreasing free medical care sure would stop many illegal aliens from coming to America.

...in reading old posts, you bring up sodomy alot?

Non sequitor.


(I doubt though you intended this... Most of your posts seem more concerned with inflaming others.)

LOL...A real zinger.

+1

But so incredibly pertinent in pointing the enormous hypocrisy that exists when it comes to evangelical conservatives and the environment

Yeah, China (the country that CA's Arnold and the Feds have been sucking up to lately) builds at least one coal burning power plant PER MONTH! If you are so concerned with emissions Texas should be the least of your problems (and I've been in TX for a few weeks from North CA and haven't noticed a marked difference, other than perhaps for the better in air quality)

Greenhouses gasses being a theory is completely hilarious to me. Any amount of study and research about Carbon Dioxide and methane show how they trap heat
