ICYMI: Commissioner Christian Column “The science on climate change is not settled”


AUSTIN– In Case You Missed It (ICYMI), Railroad Commissioner Wayne Christian released an editorial challenging the notion that the “science is settled” on climate change. 

“Because of oil and gas, our lives are no longer defined by extreme hunger, cold or hardship,” Commissioner Christian notes. “It’s easy to forget these things given the way the mainstream media reports climate change. By bombarding us with sensationalist predictions of death and destruction, they make it seem like using oil and gas to drive our cars and heat our homes is bad.”

Commissioner Christian’s column is available for re-publication and can be read here.  Originally published in TribTalk, their republishing guidelines can be found here.
