Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 871 -- Texas Is A National Leader In Cleaning Up Air.

EPA Overreach Threatens Texas Progress-

Texas is the number one wind energy producing state in America. If Texas were its own country (don't get any ideas), we'd be among the top 5 or 6 wind energy producing countries. Texas also 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.

The Texas Public Policy Foundation elaborates:

Over the last decade, as the Texas population grew by over 4 million people and the state economy grew by a rate of 40 percent, Texas air quality dramatically improved—thanks in large part to the FPP. The Houston region, in years past vying with Los Angeles as the most ozone- polluted part of the country, reduced ozone levels from 119 parts per billion (ppb) in 1999 to 84 ppb in 2009. The home of the nation’s largest petrochemical industrial complex, Houston, TX, met the still legally binding 85 ppb federal ozone standard.
In spite of the evidence that it is working, EPA decided that the Texas Flexible Permitting Program violates the Federal Clean Air Act (CAA).

Texas has become a national leader in effective and innovative environmental programs. From 2000-08, Texas lowered nitrous oxides (NOx) levels by 46 percent and ozone levels by 22 percent. Over the same period, national NOx levels fell by only 27 percent and ozone levels declined by only 8 percent.

The EPA needs to stop messing with Texas. We're adding 4 new Congressional seats. Our economy is the most robust of any large state. More jobs. Fewer bankruptcies and foreclosures. And one of the best improvements in our air quality.

For federal government bureaucrats, process and control matter more than results.
