Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 755 -- Texas Number One For Green Homes.

Consumer-Driven Environmentally-Friendly Beats Regulation-Driven Environmentally-Friendly-

Texas is the number one wind energy producing state in the nation. Texas is one of the few states that has successfully limited the growth of carbon dioxide emissions in the past decade. Texas is also number one in the nation for green homes:

Texas did not achieve these things through an aggressive California-style (or Washington, D.C.-style) regulatory scheme or draconian cap & trade style mandates.

Economic vitality and growth, plus a relatively free market and fair regulatory system, led Texas to environmental success, even as the traditional oil and gas industry continues to thrive and produce energy and chemicals for the rest of the country. Texas produces a fifth of the nation's crude oil, a fourth of the nation's fuel supply, a fourth of the nation's natural gas, roughly 60% of the nation's chemicals.

Since 2000, the population in Texas has grown by nearly 3.5 million people. Yet, statewide ozone levels have fallen 22% and nitrogen oxide levels have fallen 46%.

Not surprisingly, all four major Texas metropolitan areas are among the top ten cities where the recession is easing up already.

The Democrats, even many Congressional Democrats from Texas, want to change all that. Whether it's cap and trade, or EPA rulings that amount to the same impact as cap and trade, Obama's Washington is aiming for Texas. The Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Attorney General, and Governor are fighting back against the EPA in court, as are Alabama and Virginia.

We don't need a one-size-fits-all environmental scheme in this country. We also don't need a Governor in Texas such as liberal Democrat Bill White who disagrees with Texas' EPA court challenge and agrees with Obama and the Democrats in Washington, D.C. on environmental over-regulation.
