Adapting to Climate Change Won’t Be Easy

I’m proud to be a Texan living here in the Lone Star State. It’s not just because of our progressive politics in Austin but because of the natural re source s that Texas has access to. There’s no denying that the source of that natural resource comes straight from our beautiful land but we have taken a care not to disturb our rich fields of natural gas and oil that have helped place Texas high on the map for energy revenue. I have no doubt that Texas could split itself from the Union and be able to thrive on its own thanks to our natural resources, if such a thing would ever occur that is! With this money we’re beginning to finally invest in Green, renewable energy; I have no doubt that we’re going to be one of the first states to invest heavily into it, right next to California. Most of the country is still heavily reliant on fossil fuels but we know the score.

The planet is in a perpetual state of change. Patterns are easily predicted on a human scale but even we are going to have to admit that our drive for industry is effecting those patterns in noticeable and real ways. There’s so much politics involved in climate change that there are politicians and scientists both paid to deny it. How can real numbers be denied? How can real world results be denied? The past two years have been the hottest in the United States; ever. That’s something that we cannot deny. They’ll split hairs and claim that it’s not because of humans. They’re right in part. They ignore the fact that humans are causing these naturally occurring patterns to intensify in their strength. Our dependency on aerosols and fossil fuels continue to exacerbate the our situation.
