Speaking of Texas...

Yes, this is a blog focusing on international affairs, but sometimes domestic issues stray onto the international stage. Take for example a report issued today that listed Texas as the largest single source of greenhouse gas emissions among the United States.

The report went further saying that if Texas were an independent country, it would be the seventh largest greenhouse gas polluter IN THE WORLD. Refineries, coal-fired power plants and a love of large, smog-belching trucks were all cited as factors.

In response, Texas governor Rick Perry’s office issued a statement saying the world’s largest source of greenhouse gas emissions was “Al Gore’s mouth.”

You have to love that Texas-style of leadership.
