There’s a lot of hot air expended about “global warming” and “climate change.” What’s painfully obvious is that the “solutions” promoted bear a striking resemblance to the same, tired, disproven socialist ideas carted around by liberals for years. It’s also obvious that those ideas will have dangerous consequences for Texans and our economy. One clear-thinking leader on energy policy is Michael Williams, chairman of the state’s commission that oversees energy policy.

Chairman Williams says, “We should be prudent in what we do going forward. Being prudent means that we do not cause consumers and taxpayers to incur outlandish costs in order to deal with something – present day costs – in order to deal with some future possibility or danger. We have to be very careful in how we proceed.”
