Still, without broader cooperation from the state, it is unclear how far individual cities can go. State water officials do not consider climate change when planning for Texas’ future, and legislators will not ask them to anytime soon, said state Sen. Troy Fraser, a Republican and chairman of the Senate Natural Resources Committee.
“It’s not a parameter that we’ve requested they look at,” Fraser said in a June intervew.“There’s a disagreement within the people of Texas on the science of greenhouse gases.”
Me: how do you see a disagreement within the people other than being anti-Obama? Look at all the solar development in Texas.
