Texas EPA Czar Calls for Emergency Climate Change Plan Print E-mail

Texas EPA czar, Al Armendariz, a professor at SMU in Dallas, is raising alarm bells that Texans have not yet made preparations for President Barack Obama’s new climate change policies if he is re-elected to the White House.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, “Texas lags behind most states in planning for the unavoidable impacts of climate change on its landscape and economy, according to a national report released Thursday.”

Working on behalf of the Texas EPA czar, the Natural Resources (NRDC), which prepared the report, said Texas must work to curb emissions of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases and prepare for rising sea levels and declining water supplies.”

According to the Houston Chronicle, “the environmental group lumped Texas with 11 other states that have no strategy for responding to the effects of climate change, particularly those related to water. Texas’ ongoing drought clearly shows its vulnerability to higher temperatures and changes in rainfall, said Steve Fleischli, director of the NDRC’s water and climate program.”

If Obama wins re-elections, many believe that Al Armendariz could become the next director of the Environmental Protection Agency.
