Texas: Both the Biggest Polluter and Cleanest State?
Nov 18, 2009
My home state of Texas seems to be an ecological paradox. According to official statistics, Texas produces more CO2 than any other state –and even countries like Canada. And, according to a recent report by the environmental non-profit organization Environment Texas, the Lone Star state saw its CO2 output decline by 2% between 2004 and 2007, the second-biggest drop in absolute emissions in the U.S. after New York over the period.
