Responding To Texas’ Environmental Reality

Source: Texas Tribune

This weekend Governor Perry lead a rally in Houston, Texas called “The Response.”  As he spoke in Houston about praying for guidance, and for our nation and its leaders, I thought about what I hope for Texas and for Governor Perry.

  •  I hope that after he leaves Houston he helps to enact policies that help it rise from its rating as one of the nation’s most toxic cities.  

Most of all, I pray that Governor Perry will realize that regulating air pollution isn’t about “States’ Rights,” it’s about preventing terrifying trips to the emergency room with a child who is having an asthma attack, wondering whether you will get there fast enough to save them. Our health, our children’s health and the health of our planet are under constant attack.  As we look for guidance from above, maybe we should be more vigilant in protecting what we have been given.
