Our children and grandchildren are going to curse us for our dithering over climate change and our failure to take measures to stop it while much of it it can still be stopped, I know it. We are buying them a horrible future with our polluting, corporate, plastic sins.
The Texas Republicans feel differently. They are not so big on science - they find it extreme. From their 2012 Republican Party Platform:
"We strongly oppose all efforts of the extreme environmental groups that stymie legitimate business interests. We strongly oppose those efforts that attempt to use the environmental causes to purposefully disrupt and stop those interests within the oil and gas industry. We strongly support the immediate repeal of the Endangered Species Act. We strongly oppose the listing of the dune sage brush lizard either as a threatened or an endangered species. We believe the Environmental Protection Agency should be abolished."
We must not let them succeed in this.
