Texas Victories for Clean Energy and Climate Protection
- Big news. Yesterday, Texas Governor Perry promised to build the
transmission lines that are needed to spur more development of Texas
wind farms. This is such an important turn-about that two dozen
papers and TV stations, including national media, have run the story.
Also, a Texas oil man, developer and environmentalist with ties to
top GOP office holders has announced that, because of concerns about
air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions, he will sue TXU for
proposing to build the dirty coal-fired electricity plants.
Thank you for your efforts to protect the climate and promote
renewable energy. Thanks for asking Perry to develop a plan for
climate protection. Please continue to ask Perry to stop
fast-tracking the more than a dozen old-style polluting coal plants
that could pollute for 50 years. Please ask Governor Perry to join
the Governor of California and others in making energy efficiency a
