Jan. 21 — Gov. Greg Abbott recently said it is “impossible” for him know whether human-made climate change is contributing to natural disasters in Texasbecause he is not scientist.
Yes, climate change is complex. But my colleagues and I are here to help. With the start of the 2019 legislative session, 26 climate scientists and experts, including myself, offered to brief Gov. Abbott on the hard evidence that the climate is changing, humans are primarily responsible, and if we don’t act soon, Texans may suffer mightily.
